Lace, Pearls and Taupe Booties

Lace, Pearls and Taupe Booties

“Lace – the invention of a goddess and the occupation of a queen.”



Some fashion elements just never get boring. Lace and pearls – what can be more romantic and sensual? I paired a lace trim top with a pearl necklace, white jeans and taupe subtly embellished booties. The top is very versatile, and it adds a touch of elegance to a casual outfit. I also wore it with a skater skirt for a birthday party. Matching light brown hues with white is a pleasure in itself. This color combination is easy to perceive and easy to understand.

Taupe booties is a great solution if you cannot make a choice between black and brown as the color of your shoes. Taupe is not already gray, and not yet brown. The color is sometimes referred to as mushroom. It suits blondes really well, and goes well with golden accessories, like jewelry, handbags, hair pins and such. I was surprised to learn about the color taupe origin: it was named after a European mole! ‘Talpa Europaea‘ means European mole in French, and you can see its photo here and read more about it here. Moles may not be the cutest animals on earth but thanks to the color of their fur, the fashion world got more to match and more to love.

Visualizing lace and pearls may create some vintage images. Short strand of pearls, lace trim top and skinny jeans can be casual enough and not vintage at all. It is how you would like to present it: fresh and simple or more mysterious?
