Wearing: Custom designed Green Lace Dress, Vintage belt and Earrings. The trees and vegetation as a whole seem especially lush this Spring. For once, I decided to try to blend in, why stand out among such beautiful fields of Green?
I enjoy wearing playful accessories after while browsing my shoes I decided to add some flair to my plain navy loafer. It’s easy to do and fun, so do try it!What do you need?
- 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
- Chalk and leather glue(optional)
1. Mark the top of your shoe with chalk then puncture a hole with the seam ripper. 2.Thread your needle with the hanging string from the tassel. 3.Pull the needle through the hole you made. 4.Now tie 2 knots to secure the tassel. Cut the hanging thread and apply glue to seal the thread if you wish. Now you are ready to wear your DIY Tassel Loafers!
What do you think? Easy aye? DO share if you try it!
Kale, the vegetable that magically eases my crazy pollen allergies! My super mom who supports my dreams, cheers me on and prays like crazy for me.Gorgeous Canopies of Wisteria that I get to play underneath. (This probably has a lot to do with my Pollen allergies acting up but oh well…) Gorgeous views of The Kennedy Center.
What are you thankful for today?
Spring is in full bloom and it is lovely! I stop find myself stopping often just to enjoy all the beautiful flowers especially this gorgeous vine that formed a canopy in Meadowlark Gardens last week. It feels like Purple rain is falling down on me.

This is the final look of 3 in the How to Style a White Lace Dress Series. Check out the other ways HERE! 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! Wearing: Forever21 dress| J.Crew Denim jacket, belt and scarf | Vintage Coach Bag and Vintage Earring.

This is the second of three posts in the How to Style a White Lace Dress Series. I am showing 3 ways to wear 1 lace dress. This look could be referred to as the sporty look. I paired this lace dress with a Parker to give it a bit of a utility edge and finished it off with sneakers, a printed cotton clutch and a leather and cord belt. This look is great for a day of errands or hanging out with friends at a park. Wearing: Forever21 dress, H&M Parka, Olubukunmi Clutch, Converse Sneakers, Vintage belt and earrings. |Styling by Buki Peters || Photography by Joshua Gilbert|
Would you style a lace dress this way?

This 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.This 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. Wearing: Forever21 dress, J.Crew cardigan, Urban Outfitters sunglasses,Converse Sneakers, Vintage belt, bangles and earrings. |Styling by Buki Peters || Photography by Joshua Gilbert|
Would you wear a variation of this look?
