Texture Lust

IMG_8612-0.JPG
When it comes to fashion, there nothing more fun to experiment with than great texture; and fall is when textures really come out to play!

Out of their summer slumbers come the cable knits, the quilting, the tweeds and flannels, but the most exciting fall textures this hear have to be the leathers and the faux furs!

How exciting it was to finally see this Michel Studio faux fur vest in store at Addition Elle!!! I had been lusting for it ever since I spotted it in one of this fall’s video promos, and I snapped it up immediately!

I paired it with another one of Addition Elle’s gorgeous decadent, fall pieces – their Love & Legend, black pleather skirt, to really indulge my textural desires.

I opted for a risqué, strappy lace bra from Hips & Curves underneath to add yet another layer to the mix, a sexy pair of laser cut peep toes, gold bangles, dangly earrings, and my fabulous vintage clutch, for an edgy, texture-rich look that will definitely turns up the heat for fall!!!

Denim on Denim

Denim on Denim

Well, life has been a bit busy over this past week. It’s funny, because as I type the very words, I’m trying hard to figure out exactly what I’ve been so busy with, and I’m at a loss. It was nothing out of the ordinary, I suppose… Just life. But regardless, until now, haven’t found the time to actually sit down and write – but I’m back! And it’s time to talk about a couple of great new additions to my closet! Yay!

We are seeing a whole lot of denim on denim this spring, and it can be very chic depending on how you work it. Even the hubby is now the proud owner of a denim shirt! But I’m not feeling bold enough to rock it, head to toe, just yet, so, this great, sheer, cream color blouse with denim trim, paired with these fantastic acid wash jeans, (both from Penningtons) which I’ve folded under for a faux cropped appearance, create the perfect compromise! I’ve accessorized with my new Obi leather belt from Igigi, color blocked flats from Payless and a cute cuff bracelet from Forever 21 for a chic, laid-back look that’s perfect for casual Friday!
