Who knew leather and lace go together like peanut butter and jelly? My inspiration photo, that's who. And I was happy to re-create using a lace top I've worn a hundred times, but always in a feminine outfit, never mixed with "tough" leather and booties like today's look. And I have to say, I'm loving it. It's a great way to add texture to an all-black look this fall, and wearing a leather vest (instead of a leather jacket) lets the pretty lace sleeves really shine!
