  • Tassels (See my easy Pinterest DIY here) or buy some at a craft store
  • A seam ripper Or a leather punch
  • A leather needle / a thick sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Shoes
  • Chalk and leather glue(optional)

IMG_34221. Mark the top of your shoe with chalk then puncture a hole with the seam ripper.  IMG_34552.Thread your needle with the hanging string from the tassel. IMG_34623.Pull the needle through the hole you made. IMG_34764.Now tie 2 knots to secure the tassel. Cut the hanging thread and apply glue to seal the thread if you wish.

How to style a white lace dress – look 3

IMG_7411This is the final look of 3 in the How to Style a White Lace Dress Series. Check out the other ways  HERE! IMG_7410 This final look is Casual Chic and it is my favorite because it can go from day to evening. I paired this lace dress with a classic denim jacket then made it special with a bright red belt. To add a scarf for comfort on a cool morning or evening and to tie together all the colors worn. This look is my favorite of all three and it is also so patriotic which wasn’t planned but I like!

How to style a white lace dress – look 1

IMG_7642This is the first of three posts in the How to Style a Lace Dress Series. I will be showing you 3 ways to wear 1 lace dress.IMG_7612This look could be referred to as a dressy lady-like look. The cardigan and jewelry upgrade this simple white lace dress. The belt I chose is also white to create a longer silhouette and more formal look. I purposefully dressed this look down with sneakers because that is how I’d wear it otherwise it can be worn with pumps or a ballet flat to an afternoon luncheon.  IMG_7605Wearing: Forever21 dress, J.Crew cardigan, Urban Outfitters sunglasses,Converse Sneakers, Vintage belt, bangles and earrings.
