Leather and Lace

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.
Peacock feathers, leather and lace...this is what kept catching my eye, while shopping yesterday! It was a lovely afternoon; my mother came out to visit and we took the kiddies to lunch and shopping. This was the final run before school starts.

Everywhere I turned there were new fashions and accessories, just screaming...BUY ME, so I did! I found this beautiful headband with small and delicate peacock feathers, it is not obtrusive, the feathers have been rounded to subtly lie on your head. This was my dare to be different. I found the piece to be darling and fabulous! The perfect accessory for me to wear this Saturday to a Bridal Shower.

I am so in love with the vintage accessories that have made a comeback. I was so excited about my peacock find, yet a bit skeptic on if I could pull it off. So I called my sister and she encouraged me to wear it. She said that a peacock feather symbolizes; beauty, knowledge, power and some say it symbolizes immortality. The beautiful array of colors and shades in a peacock feather range from brown, green, blue and purple, which makes this piece extremely versatile.

Now onto the leather and lace, OOH-La-La, this fall seasons trends are'em. But yesterday was not about me, so to avoid cranky kids, I did not try on any new fashions, but I do have a date with myself to go back and browse in the weeks to come.

What Fabulous Finds have you found for Fall?

I love peacock feathers! I have been considering getting one tattoo'd on my back, but maybe I should start with some accessories first and see how I like it!

oooo the headband sounds fabulous!!

I haven't been shopping for Fall. I'm going on Saturday to get a new outfit. My clothes are starting to get too big. It's wonderful and annoying all at the same time.

Happy Thursday!
