Lace & Leather

 I've always been one to try and 'edge up' any kind of outfit that's super girly and you can rest assured that I'm not about to stop now. I love how easy it is to throw some black boots and a leather jacket on with a girly dress and completely change the vibe. I'm all about that vibe change. In this instance, I wanted to amp it up a little by contrasting leather with this beautiful cream lace dress from Jones+Jones. Of course you could wear this little number with some pretty cut out heels and a nice clutch but in-case that's a bit too 'obvious' for you, then this might be up your street.
I couldn't help but whack out these New Look boots that we all know and love because they help create the most mystical illusion of legs that don't look like sausages and that's something I can get down with. I also love how the harshness of them contrasts so much with the puffed out tutu style skirt section of the dress (which in case you were wondering.. did make me feel a bit Disney and yes I might have actually loved it).

 All I'm waiting for now is an invite to somewhere worthy of this lace & leather combo. So.. any offers?

  3. I'm the exact opposite - if I wear something too black or edgy I need to soften it! You look awesome in that dress ;)

  9. I also cannot wear anything girly without adding a tough edge it just feels so unnatural for me. I don't think you should wait for an occasion to wear this out, just head down to Tesco with a yeah I know I look great swag, you could totally pull it off!
