Lace & Leather


How can one wear a Victorian blouse without looking stuck in the past? How about wearing a leather mini without appearing skanky? The answer for me was obvious: Combine the two together! I've always enjoyed the juxtaposition between tough elements and delicate details. I believe it makes for a more unexpected look than a head-to-toe style!


Top: Vintage
Skirt: h&m
Bag: Loeffler Randall
Shoes: Stella McCartney
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Hair-style: inspired by Fashezine

I absolutely love the combination of the two together! It's amazing how two completely opposite textures mesh so well together. Those heels are absolutely killer. I adore the hairstyle too :)

What a greate idea! I also have a delicate blouse (from my mom) but never wear it beacuase I couldn`t find the right pair of pants or a nice skirt! But this combination it`s just perfect! Thanks, Mina.

Kisses,
Veronica

Wow, those shoes are AMAZING!:X

Cee said...

This outfit has absolutely perfect contrast! The Victorian top and leather mini aren't two pieces I would ever have thought to pair, but you're absolutely right- they're a perfectly natural combination and look just beautiful together. Your ribbon braid adds just a little ethnic touch that makes this look even more unique. Love it! Can't wait to meet you on Sunday :)

oh Mina, yes and more YES! the pairing you've described is top notch and couldn't look better! absolutely love how you've combo'd the edge with femininity. perfectly tricked out indeed! and sweet addition of your braided headband too, the color is a fun inclusion.
