Leather and Lace

picture-43I have a confession to make…

I totally lost all control at Saks (thanks Melissa!) and totally splurged on a pair of Christian Louboutin Sigourney “Shoeties”.  They were originally $1030 and I got them for $250!!  I have been dying for a pair of these and considering the pair I wanted at Baker’s was $84.99, spending an extra $160 for the Loubs seemed totally reasonable.  I’m having a bit of buyer’s remorse because I hate spending more than $100 on anything, so now I am brainstorming on all the possible outfits I can wear these with…

One of the biggest trends this season has been lace and nothing goes better with lace, than leather.  I love the idea of pairing something as romantic and feminine as lace with something tough and edgy like leather, but there are some definite no-no’s when wearing this fabric.

1. A little lace goes a long way, so opt for lace accents…no head to toe lace please.

2. At the risk of looking like a streetwalker, stay away from colored lace and stick to black and nude.

And if you’re not comfortable in the Prada-inspired lace pieces, then try a great accessory, like shoes or a handbag instead.  Here are my picks for some of the best lace out there, and don’t worry, they’re all priced much lower than my fabulous new shoeties!!!
