OOTD: Lace & Leather


Ok to be fair I think I'm actually wearing pleather leggings but "Lace & Pleather" just didn't have the same ring at "Lace & Leather" hahaha


I'm totally obsessed with this Ann Taylor statement necklace that I picked up a few months ago.. it's a gorgeous emerald green color and it is designed to look like a vintage estate piece! LOVE!


Coming from San Francisco I'm use to always having my hair down but living in S.A. I've been trying to find cute ways to wear my hair up rather than just tying it into a ponytail.  I found this cute tutorial in one of my japanese magazines.  It's quite easy - just do two braids like you would do two pigtails and then take each braid and wrap them around the top of your head and pin on the back.


Forever 21 cardigan
Zara tunic
Romeo & Juliet leather leggings
Ann Taylor necklace
Prada pumps
Chanel flap

  18. absolutely loving your lace and leather look. and yes, it does have a better ring to it than pleather.

  19. you look so chic girl! i know exactly what you mean with just boring ponytail. I love doing braids during the summer especially the french braid but i havent master doing it yet.

    have a great weekend!

  20. I love your hair and outfit as always, missy. Your hairdo looks super cute and very appropriate for tripled digit temperature. I need to be more creative with my hair, that is for sure. And that Chanel is perfect, either rain or shine.

    I love the look of patent as much as lambskin, which one requires more maintenance Lisa? May I request you to do a post on how each leather (patent, lambskin, calfskin, caviar) holds up over time? :D

  21. Love the hair and the accessories are outstanding!

    Thank you so much for your nice comments! So glad we found each other :)

    1) Muse bag in oversized, make sure the handle is long enough for you to put over your shoulder, mine falls off my shoulder sometimes I wish I got the black patent one!

    2) Happy Diamond ring, my mom gave to me :) she has a watch too I'm trying to steal. The reason why she gave it to me b/c the diamonds stop moving and yes, water does get in it. Expensive but highly sensitive to the elements.

    Going to find you on twitter and follow too :)
    xoxo have a great weekend!

  23. Loving those leggings - how do you manage to keep cool in them over in S.A.?

    I'm wearing a sweater, jeans, boots and I have yet to take off my coat - don't you miss it here in SF?

  24. I was debating for the longest time whether to get pleather leggings. I love the look but I'm afraid I can't pull it off on a regular day haha. But it looks great on you and I like your hair like that too :)

  25. love your outfit lisa! that cardigan looks so cute on you! i wish i can see the back of your hair though ahhaha, i'm so noob when it comes to putting my hair up. I literally just know how to have it in a pony tail...or a bun...and that's pretty much it lol. I'm one of those people who can't braid hair myself. I mean i know how to french braid and all, but can never do it on myself lol. my hands don't listen!
