A Lacey Perspective: Seminole Style - Tie It Up

I have seen this whole tie-your-jacket-around-your-waist trend pop up everywhere. Besides the fact that it is oh-so 90s, I was hesitant this look would not compliment my hourglass shape and enhance my curvy hips. But after seeing some Pin-spiration I realized it is all about where you tie your jacket. Think of this as a new way to give some of your old looks new life (or take some of your new looks back to old?).

Make sure to tie the jacket just above your hips as to accentuate the smaller part of your waist. It took me a couple tries to find the right spot for me (not too high up like a high-waisted belt), but don’t give up on it. I promise it will be your next ah-ha moment! I cannot wait to give this a try with some more girly dresses and see what this 90s look can really do!

A Lacey Perspective: School Girl

I was asked recently to be a guest stylist on the University of Maryland’s campus. It has been quite some time since I have been on a college campus and to be honest I was completely stumped on what to wear.

Of course, the night before I was on a crazy deadline for a client and had little to no sleep whatsoever. As one of my good friends Carlis likes to say “The hustle is real gurl.”

Luckily Olay sent me their Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer (which is infused with essence of honeysuckle and white tea) and as soon as I slapped on some of that magic goodness my skin instantly looked like I had my full 8 hours of sleep! It truly gave my skin a glow and punch of hydration I needed!

So needless to say my first day “back to school” in a long time was not smooth but at least I felt and looked good thanks to Olay!
