OFF TO THE LACES

When I think of something “lacing up” images of corsets and those awful jeans from Limited Too circa 2001 that laced up the front instead of having a normal button/zip fly. I pray y’all know what I’m referring to because I’m literally laughing to myself as I type this. Basically, anything with crisscross ties has been trashy for years, but go ahead and toss those images out the window and prepare to lace up your wardrobe. We’ve all seen these amazing Aquazzura flats for a while now (I literally dream about them),¬†but this trend can definitely be applied to more than just shoes, as evidenced above! Elizabeth and James does it best, with both dresses in the top right. Whether you want to be super sexy in the black dress that channels Balmain, or a little more reserved¬†in the burgundy, with the subtle laced detail at the waist, this trend can work so many different ways. I love that it adds an edge to any outfit and can fit in with any style!

Hi! Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week, you know the drill. While most of this stuff has to go on the back burner (aka I’ll just dream of it for a while and then concede working retail doesn’t pay for Chloe bags…), the wallet and Chelsea boots are more realistic/practical. I’ve been in the market for a simple yet interesting wallet. I like that this one from Marc by Marc Jacobs almost has a clutch-like appeal, setting it apart from the basic zip-around continental wallet I’ve been schlepping around. As of late, I’ve also been in the market for some black flat booties. Sure, it’s barely summer, but you could say I’m pregaming for fall. What have y’all been eyeing lately? Stop back here tomorrow for some July Fourth inspiration!
