ZIppers & Lace

I picked this lace top up yesterday at Kismet - an amazing little store in O'Bryonville, near campus. One of my favorite skirts is black lace with a nude underlay, but it's getting really raggedy and the elastic is starting to pop out from the lace. It's really on it's last legs, so I was happy to pick up this top to replace the lace skirt. The entire shirt is lace, so I put a black tank underneath, but sometime if I'm feeling particularly racy, I might try it with just a bra underneath and a pair of high waisted jeans...

I wanted something that was going to offset the really feminine lace (I didn't want to be too girly today!) so I paired it with this skirt, which has a great zipper detail.

I bought these earrings at Summerfair (a HUGE art fair in Cincinnati). They're amazing because they're made out of the ends of vintage silverware. If I remember correctly, these were dated from the 1920's.

I found this purse in a tiny little vintage shop when I was living in Italy last summer. It was run by a tiny little old German lady and her daughter, but when I made this purchase, the daughter was out, and neither the old lady nor myself spoke very good Italian. Somehow, though, we managed to agree on a decent price. This is one of my all-time favorite purchases.

  1. Love your style! Your outfits are so cute. Can't wait to see what else you put together.

  2. I love the feminine lace and the toughness of the zipper skirt together. Great combo!
