Velvet & Lace

When it comes to styling I like to mix different textures. In this case we are talking about lace and velvet.

I got this skirt during my last trip to Bulgaria (which is my home country by the way). What I really like about it are the little gold buttons- the way they are placed really brings the piece together. The black lace is so subtle that it keeps the mini skirt very classy.

It is one thing to get dressed because you need to, but it is a whole different story to be a Coco Chanel for the day.

To be honest I love the concept of adding a bit of lace to an outfit-it just gives this feminine (and sometimes even vintage) vibe to the outfit. When I get dressed I like having a vision about the look I get at the end. Especially when it comes to special occasions I like to get a special inspiration or recreate a person- it just makes the whole process more special and fun. It is one thing to get dressed because you need to, but it is a whole different story to be a Coco Chanel for the day, right?

I’d like to hear your thoughts about this; do you treat the process of getting ready as a special ritual or do you prefer to focus on other things?
