Crochet and Lace.









Black Free People lace dress/top c/o Chelsea of Zipped, Blue Forever 21 skirt, Cream Buffalo Exchange crochet vest, Black H&M shearling wedge boots, Black H&M satchel.

As you can tell, two materials of fabric I'm slightly obsessed with or just loving at the moment are crochet and lace.  I believe presently my wardrobe is getting filled with crochet and lace tops, shorts, shirts, etc. lol.  Once I'm hooked to something, I get quite hooked -- as with last year, I had a baad shoe obsession, where every week my mom and dad would see me strolling in with just a shopping bag and they'd say, without even knowing what's inside it, "More shoes huh?"

But anyways enough of my bad habits haha, onto what I'm wearing.  The beautiful Chelsea of Zipped and I came up with this brilliant idea not too long ago about clothes swapping/borrowing!  We recently put together a few surprise items from our closets and shipped them off to each other so we could have a chance to exchange and wear each other's clothes.  She sent me aamazing clothes -- she knows exactly what I love -- lace, cropped shirts, silk blouses, and skirts.  And so, I'm wearing her Free People lace top/dress and I LOVE it :).  Paired it with my buffalo exchange crochet vest and H&M shearling wedge boots.

Also, really really exciting news lovelies!  I just found out yesterday that I got accepted into the Creative Team for BARE Magazine!  They're in charge of all the photoshoots.  I'm sooo excited, definitely because I want to get into fashion styling - this will be a great avenue for me.
AND, next Wednesday I'm going to attend a Crossroads blogger panel for one of their manager meetings!  I'm very excited yet super scared (as I'm accompanied by really established & not to mention tres chic bloggers), I will keep you posted on all the details forsure.

In addition, stay tuned for a beautiful Valentine's Day Giveaway this week!!  & excitement, almost to 400 followers, you all are so amazing <3.
I hope you lovelies are doing well and you're starting off your week on the right foot.  Alrighty, I'm off to go pick up my new eyeglasses I recently ordered :).  Until then, good night lovelies and keep inspiring beautifuls!

<3, Kathleen.

Closet Hound said...

Love your crochet top and lace. So gorgeous. And that clothing swap idea is so clever!

I got into the BARE Creative team, too! As well as PR. I guess I'll see you at the meaning tonight! I'll be coming straight from my class at the gym, too, so I'll probably look awful. And sweaty. I apologize ahead of time.

Okay so coming from our position of 18 followers 400 odd is obviously a lot but whenever I read your blog I always kinda assume you're one of the people with like over 1000 just because, i dunno, i guess I just feel you SHOULD have that many followers! haha!
And lovely outfit as well btw I'm also loving crochet items at the minute xx

Nicoletta said...

I've never thought that crochet + lace could be such an amazing combination!

Cylia said...

I have that free people tunic, i really like the way you mixed different materials with it and put a vest over it. i hadn't thought of doing that.

i also have that bag from H&M, but the brown version.

Who knew crochet could look so great?? I always loved lace, but maybe I'll start considering crochet... Love the idea of sharing/swapping. It's like shopping, only cheaper! Love the wedge boots. And I can see you going into fashion styling. A HUGE HUGE HUGE congrats!
