Lace & Valentino


Nicola Fan top, BDG jeans, Valentino bow pumps

Am I ever glad that lace is no longer only reserved for weddings. My love for this delicate fabric has grown a 'hole' lot in recent years, hence the double layering and the choice of footwear here in my 'Christmas' outfit.   Paired with my bold and festive red BDG jeans is the one-of-a-kind Nicola Fan cropped lace top I got from the designer herself. It's a shame I don't have a picture of the back as it features a keyhole and zipper details.  Last but definitely not least, the Valentino pumps were an unexpected purchase from earlier this year. Having always dreamed of owning a pair of the now classic Valentino Bow shoes, I saw these seasonal nude pumps at Neiman Marcus and just couldn't pass them up!

Wishing you all a belated Happy Holidays! I hope Santa was good to each and every one of you.

Gorgeous outfit! I have a quick question, did you ever find a protective spray for your Blue Manolo's? I got them in Fuschia and I want to make sure I take good care of them! I really appreciate your answer! :)

Those pumps are so cute! The combination of nude & black has become one of my favorite color pairings. Love the texture of the lace with the fur collar, too!
