If You’re Ever In: New York

One of my all-time favorite boutiques is LF Stores. I have visited their SoHo location two times prior to living in New York this summer & after 11 weeks of trying to find the best boutiques, LF still tops my list! I have said so many times how excited I am because next year I will FINALLY be living in New York to shop their only sale of the season. Little did I know that their spring sale would start my last day in New York. Best surprise ever!

The entire store was 60% off & will continue to be marked down until they get rid of all of their spring merchandise. The store was absolute chaos but completely worth it! If you are ever in NYC, Los Angeles, Miami, or Boston during one of their AMAZING sales, I highly recommend allowing at least two hours to shop. There are so many fabulous finds but you will have to dig & walk around the store several times. Also, the lines for the dressing room & the checkout can get extremely long. I put my name down for the dressing room when I found a handful of good items but continued browsing while I was waiting for my name to be called and ended up with at least double the items. I also recommend shopping at LF prior to their sale. You will be able to get a feel of the store and at least have an idea of the items you want. All of the items I had my eye on earlier on in the summer I ended up buying at 60% off.

How To: Wear a Lace Top

Lace has continued to be a must-have trend. You can now find lace tights, lace gloves & lace accessories. Several brands like Free People & BCBG have even made a lace top. Do you love the idea but are clueless about how to pull off a lace top? I will show you three different ways that you can wear the lace top.

1. The Sequin Tank – A great way to really stand out and make this trend your own is by wearing a sequin tank top under the lace top. If you can find a sequin tank with a fun print, it will add much more excitement and individuality to the outfit. Featured in the picture above: BCBG & 2kilo.

2. The Little Black Dress – The second way you can wear your lace top is to pair it with a little black dress. This is a great way to give new life to your favorite go-to dress. By wearing the lace top underneath the dress, it will give the dress a whole new look. Featured in the picture above: Quba.

3. The Tube Top – Lastly, you can go bare & wear a tube top underneath the lace top. If you want to pull off this look on a warm summer’s night – this will definitely be your best option. Featured in the picture above: Niki Biki.

- Oversized shirts paired with skinny jeans & pumps
- Lace tights (Whitney Port designed a pair for her first collection)
- A fashionable watch
- Sequins, bows & lots of black!

Must-Have: Free People Bronte Lace Top

fpbrontelacetopBlack lace is a popular trend this season. In Free People’s July 2009 catalog, I fell in love with this long sleeve lace top. In the catalog, they proved that this lace top could be worn in more ways than one. Wear it over a simple tank top with jeans or wear it under an old dress to give it a whole new look. This top also comes in ivory, soft pink, sage and hot berry.
