OOTD: Lace & Leather







Peplum: ZARA, Leather pants: F21, Necklace: ANN TAYLOR, Ring: FROM TAIWAN,
Shoes: ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, Handbag: CHANEL 

Isn't there a Britney song called "Lace & Leather"?? 

muhahahaha

I have a couple of pairs of leather leggings that I love and wear quite frequently but I've been on the hunt for a pair of leather pants that would wear more like trousers versus being skintight like leggings.  And I think I've found it with this pair from F21!  I must admit I'm totally guilty of living in leggings... it started with regular cotton leggings, then moved on to jean leggings.. than leather leggings ARGH.  Totes guilty of passing off leggings as pants!  But I really love the trouser feel to these leather pants!  Even though I love my leather leggings I find that the leather pants seem to give the outfit a bit more structure that often gets lost with leggings.

With the monochromatic black look I felt like was a perfect excuse to pull out my sparkly A. McQueen's!  I really don't get to wear these as much as I'd like.. it really can be difficult to pair sparkly shoes with everyday clothes haha.

  29. I love it when 2 very different textures combine to give an edgey look. Lace and leather in black sounds totally like my kinda badass with a dash of femininity. The way you described, leather leggings sure sound so comfy. Real or synthetic? I love synthetic ones for clothes. It's just so much softer and thinner which is comfy on the body.

    RYC:
    I would expect you did all the rest of the stuff featured in the video too! Hahaha... It is so evident from your blog. Ooh, could you please do the 1--10 thingy and post on your blog? Get your fun(ny) hubby to do it with you! That would be so totally bimbotic but fun.

    $150 USD is crazy!!! I would not have dataplan if I were in Europe too. We in Asian countries must be so lucky to have more affordable data plan.

  30. RYC: Yesss totally agree that the Lancome make up remover is by far the best one yet! and Sephora... just keeps on bumping the prices up! It's now at $35 for us Canadians!! Crazyyyy. Have you used prevage before? i haven't but hoping to try it now that the sample is here :)

    just saw that you're based in SF. I LOVEEE SF!!! Was there in November and it was sooo fun its like shopping heaven and your transit system is speedy and convenient! Mad jealous of you SF people! hahaha do you head down to LA often then since its quite close?
