Lace me up

One material I can’t seem to get enough of. Lace!

I can’t get enough of it lately, and if you were paying attention to runways this season, it’s obviously a given. Oh, lace, how I love you so. Lacey bras, lace shirts, and even lace-patterned shoes!

This past week was my birthday, and my sweet boyfriend surprised me with a beautiful little lace number!

He has wonderful taste.

Of course, I tend to love lace in black, so it brings me back into that dark hole that I so desperately love. Luckily, I recently found myself a WHITE lace top, which I posted earlier in a post about spring!  I also found a nice flowy white top with lace details on the back. Perfect with coral coloured pants and a light jacket.

I also have some shoes similar to these puppies that I will be rocking for one last season. It looks as though their time has almost come, so I may have to purchase new ones in the near future. But I have a need for them in cream, nothing else!

I have also been eyeing lace shorts, but I think I need to put this obsession on hold. Too much lace doesn’t exist I guess, but you definitely shouldn’t be mixing two lace piece together! Sorry, ladies.

As for tonight, I will be rocking the lace, at least I hope to. I have an amazing crop top by Zinga, lace in the front and sheer silk in the back. So beautiful and delicate, I’m almost afraid of ripping it in a sweaty dance session.

I think I’m going to go play dress up now! I’ll also be cleaning out my closet sometime in the coming weeks, so I may be posting long lost treasures, or items I am parting with. Justine gets first dibs, of course.

Happy Friday!

New stuff

The xx have been such a sensation the past year you might even be bored of them already. The nonchalant voices, the sexy beats, they can get tiring, right? Either way, I can still thoroughly enjoy the album in its entirety. The trick is not to wear it out. Oh, and don’t listen to it with a boyfriend/girlfriend. That could ruin it due to the sexiness if the relationship ends. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I’m not going to lie, islands is probably one of the best tracks on their album. And now there is a video that involves odd choreography, people wearing black, kissing, and fire. What’s not to love? Oddly enough, I find the backdrop to look like a Louis Vuitton bag, but instead of the classic LV, we see x’s.

I’m a big Horse Feathers fan, and Words are Dead is something else. Justin Ringle’s voice blows my mind, and I’m pretty impressed with their newest album Thistled Spring. If it takes you a few rounds I understand. But they had me at hello.

And there is snow on the ground in Ottawa today. Can you believe it? I can’t…mainly because I was in shorts and sandals just a few short days ago. Mother nature seems to be in tune with my mood, but I wish it wasn’t this way.
