Well here’s the second installment of Lace, Leather & Love! Leathers always in we don’t need a runway to tell us that. If I could wear leather year round I would! Now leather comes in a variety of garments. My favorite would have to be a black leather jacket. You can never go wrong with them. Dress up or down what ever your heart desires.
Yes they are a little pricey but they are truly a good investment. Once you buy one you’ll never have to buy on again. Unless you like me and you just love to shop!
Who’s wearing leather?
Demi lovato Taylor Momsen
Even the vampires are wearing leather these days, Although I don’t think they ever really stopped.
Nina Dobrev Paul Wesley & Ian Somerhalder
cast of Vampire Diaries
But truthfully I know we not all Demi or the cast of VD so cant afford $300 jackets. Seeing as how much I love you guys I took the pleasure of finding jackets that are more in our price range. So right now I’d say check out Forever21 they have about seven or eight jackets ranging from $29-$40! Wet Seal also has a few.
The Forever21 jackets aren’t leather but they’re Leatherette. Which means it’s artificial leather so think vegan leather! Now you’re animal-friendly and looking trendy while you do it!
Lace, Leather & Love! Three things a girl needs in her life. Why? You ask...
For starter lace is in this year, it's been on practically every runway for fall. So find a way to get it in to your wardrobe.I'm personally a big fan of lace tops but I wanted to find a new fun way to display it. So after some internet sleuthing I came a cross this. Which I'm seriously loving, it's like nail couture!
Who's wearing it? Celebs like:
Blake Lively & Jennifer Lopez
Now this isn't a new trend but it's one that's holding strong.
How to do it yourself:
Start with dry, clean nails, and then brush on a coat of a nude polish. (or any color you want really)
Attach a thin piece of lace (buy this from fabric stores) or reduce, reuse, recycle scraps from an old slip.
Spray with Glue Dry (available at beauty supply stores) and trim down the lace with a pair of embroidery scissors.
One coat of IBD 5-Second Brush-on Gel Resin (available at most beauty supply stores) and you lace manicure is ready to go and will last till your nails grown out or till you soak it in an acetone nail polish remover. To keep your lace mani looking fresh apply Barielle Intensive Nail Renewal Oil around cuticles daily.
