Layers and Lace


I feel most like myself when I’m wearing harder edged structured pieces juxtaposed with a little something softer and more girly, like this tiered lace Gold Hawk slip dress. The shoes were actually purchased for my Catwoman costume last Halloween. Each year I make it a challenge to assemble my costume out of pieces that can actually be worn in real life – when separated and taken out of context of course. Though for some reason I still have yet to find the proper occasion to wear my handgun belt buckle from Santee Alley…

  1. Those shoes are perfect catwoman AND a night out on the town shoes!

  2. I heart this look so much! Especially love your dark lipstick.

    is that a nameplate I spy? are they cool again? because I have one from ages and ages ago that i’d love to get reacquainted with :)

  3. Pretty pretty! Love the ensemble and setting—on the city streets at sunset. Dope! XO, s
