LEATHER & LACE

January 4, 2014

Good morning and happy weekend, Everyone! I wanted to welcome the New Year by wearing my favorite shade of blue. I knew, I couldn't stay away from cobalt for too long:) I especially like the combination of cobalt and black, although I find it difficult to think of a color that doesn't look good with this particular shade of blue. My other weakness is formal dresses paired with leather (or suede) jackets.
I think, this combination helps to create an interesting feminine/masculine contrast for a particularly modern and fun look. What do you guys think of flirty dresses paired with tough-looking jackets? 







Style Stalker TLC dress | Club Monaco jacket - sold out { similar options here & here } | Valentino Punkouture rockstud pumps | Emporio Armani messenger bag | House of Harlow 1960 Sound Waves ring & cuff 

Thank you for reading
& Keep On Smiling,
LOVE,
Annabelle
