It's all about leather and lace.

Over the past few weeks what with the weather slowly turning more and more autumnal and due to the fact that my favourite brolly has randomly disappeared I have had no choice but to drag my shabby old leather jacket out of storage to cope with this ever changing weather. As such, I have now discovered a new love of combining leather and lace. And it seems I'm not the only one. Christopher Kane's ready to wear collection shown at LFW recently was a stunning mixture of leather and lace. And as I'm sure you'll agree they just seem to go together perfectly - the ladylike detailing on the blouse works so well against the strong biker look of the leather jacket. I actually bought this blouse yesterday from Wolf and Gypsy in Brighton - one of my favourite vintage stores in Brighton. It's one of those stores that really makes you feel like you are really buying into a piece of history and the interior of the shop is just beautiful. They are even holding a sale at the moment so if I were you I'd hopfoot it down there pretty sharpish to pick up some truly marvelous pieces for a fraction of the normal price.
