TASSELS & STRIPES
One of the things that I love this season is that tassels are coming back in a huge way! They were no longer considered keychain accessories but, were being featured in clothing, purses and the one that I am loving them on most is shoes. Every shoe from the ankle boot, to the gladiator sandal is having a tassel feature and it is coming out nicely. For the past few months I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of tassel heels and I have recently found them! As soon as I did I could not wait to wear them and was looking for any excuse or occasion. And, what better occasion than a date night with my husband that he set up just so, I could wear my newly favorite pair of high heels.
Once I found the occasion the big question left was what to wear these beauties with? Really, they could stand all alone and wear themselves. That is the power of the tassel heel; it can turn any outfit from Va to Va-Va-Voom! Or, like our fellow Canadian rapper, Drake would say “0 to 100 real quick”. I wanted to mix classic and edgy pieces together to balance the sexiness appeal of the tassel heel. So, immediately stripes and leather came to my head! Stipes because they are one of the first types of pieces when you think of a classic look and leather because it is the definition of edgy. I have had this striped, off the shoulder blouse and high-waist leather skirt for quite some time now (they are part of my go-to staple pieces) and never did it occur to me to pair them together until now.
With the French, classic feel of the striped, off the shoulder blouse and the edginess of the high- waist leather skirt it brought together the sexiness of the tassel heel and created a powerful mix of Va-Va-Voom!
