Oh yes it my favorite time of the month again where I collaborate with the Fab 40's a group of amazing International bloggers where we each create our individual interpretation of a theme .  It was actually my turn to select this months theme and after much deliberation I decided on Leather and Lace . I thought that this was going to be a breeze  for me but it turned out to be much more difficult than what I anticipated. I thought that I would go with more sexy edgy look but I took the more feminine route.. Imagine that:) 

I decided to style this olive green skirt that I scored off the clearance rack at Target for like $9 with this lace Lauren Conrad shirt and added a scarf that I got some time ago to give it a little something extra to the look.  I thought adding the snakeskin booties and bag would give it a little different vibe than just going very conservative .  

                                    Skirt - Target  , Top - Kohl's , Boots - Target , Bag- Jcpenney 

                                                 The FAB 40's 

Well it was my turn to invite our guest blogger and I am very pleased to introduce Kimberly from The Haute Life Now . I met Kim a few years ago in New York City where we  were introduced when we both were selected for a collaboration with Jcpenney . I loved her amazing style immediately so chic and sophisticated .  I am so excited that she was able to join us this week ! 

I love Kim's take on this theme she keeps it classy but adds a little sexiness with the lace crop top. I feel that this look is very New York and she looks amaaazing !
