20 Feb Turning Heads Linkup-Textured Look with Lace, Velvet, and Faux Leather
As the weather warms up, I wanted to make sure I styled another one of my velvet pieces. This jacket was from Ann Taylor and a steal on Poshmark. I was on a spree there for awhile, with the on-line thrift store, but lately have just been browsing, as I need more spring blouses and next season’s clothes. I am ready for some Spring shopping! It was a grey day, as we went out to one of our favorite wine bars, but beforehand, a photoshoot!
Well, earlier today when i was taking a photo shoot ( in the street) in front of a neighbor’s house, there were some things said. My hubby and I asked months ago, in which she agreed, if we could take pictures there. We never show the woman’s house, as my husband is shooting my outfits and the tree in the background. All of a sudden, she started yelling, “Do not take pictures in front of my house, Do not take pictures… I will call the cops!”
I was a bit rattled, as there was never a mention of this before. But oh well, the joys of humanity! I wondered if she meant the Fashion police, or the actual police. …
SO… we went to Birkdale, otherwise known as Barkdale to my pups…
The rust colored faux leather pencil skirt is several years old from Zara, ( as you know, one of my favorite stores!) as is the frilly, ruffled lace shell under my jacket. Shopping my closet, I felt these 2 pieces were meant to be together. I love textured looks, especially in the Fall-Winter as there are so many fabrics that lend themselves to this styling. The pecan colored Brahmin bag adds lady-like shape and additional texture to the look and i had to add some print with my leopard heels.
Are you shopping your closet or have you begun to shop for Spring?
