Some Of My Favorites...

I was going through some photos of past work and came across these.  Each one of these was so much fun to make and I love that each one is so different.  I started making these little bags 8 years ago and somehow ended up concentrating on designing belts instead!

Black lace, fuzzy trim, vintage silver trim and center jewel 

Feather and beaded wallet 

Metal accents, beads and jewel covered bag

A little bit western but a little dressy too!

White Lace

The first thought you might have of a white lace dress is that of a bride but this seasons popular white lace look can look anything but bridal if worn with the right shoes and accessories.  As you can see from the photos above they have mixed white lace with rugged boots, black sandals, black tights and booties and a classic nude style shoe.  To keep away from looking like you are just about to run off to the nearest chapel stay away from wearing it with a white shoe!  I love the look of white lace and have found some fantastic looks:

The Wild West

Lauren Hampton Western Inspired Belt 

Lauren Hampton Western Inspired Belt 
The western look seems to be heating up!  Personally, I love the look.   It is feminine, romantic and timeless.  Ralph Lauren has some gorgeous designs and I love the way he mixes them... suede with lace, metallics and suede, etc..  You can read more in this artcle from Style.  The wild west is back in fashion and looks like it will be really hot for fall as well.  Check out these looks for some wardrobe inspiration and read all about it by clicking on the above link.
