I just got back from my one week vacation in Florida. I was quite happy that I ran away from the super cold weather in Michigan. But somehow, I may have the Ice Queen’s power because the cold weather seemed to follow me there. 😉 For the folks in Florida, 50 degree weather seemed to be kind of like -17 for Michiganers. Lol. The locals wore super warm winter clothes and I just wore a dress with bare legs. 😉
Anyway, today’s post will be pretty short and I will fully come back this Wednesday. So please stop by again and hope to see you on my social media channels as well!
New year, new beginnings! Back to work and let’s do it!!!

By now you probably already know, in the fashion world, or most places actually, nothing is really new. The trends come and go, just about every 20 or 30 years the same trend will come back again with a slightly different twist. This includes the hottest trend this year so far, lace-up. Literally, it seems that lace-up everything is where it’s at this season. Hold on, I just came untied…OK, where was I? Oh yeah, lace-up is hot!
My first memory of lacing up has to be from my high school times. When I was a student in China, we didn’t have much fashion. It just wasn’t a priority or even a possibility. No, most people were too busy just trying to survive first. We didn’t have TV much less tablets, laptops, internet or any of that type of high tech luxury. But we did have books. I read so many books during my middle school and high school I was worried I would wear out my eyes! And no, I didn’t have glasses back then either, although I am sure I needed them. Anyway, those books showed me there is a very different world out there. One of my favorites was written by a female author from Taiwan. She traveled around the world and married her soul mate, a Spanish man. There was a black and white photo in the book where she was wearing wide legged pants and sitting against a pole in some desert place. And she wore a pair of lace up flats where the lace wound around her lower legs. Since seeing that picture, lace-up became the symbol for elegance to me. And it still is. Are you into this new trend now?
Like I said earlier, lace-up is everywhere, and on everything. Here are some great finds that will be those perfect additions to your spring wardrobe and will not break your wallet (THEY ARE MAINLY ABOUT $100). 😉
And now I really have to put my foot down. But only if it goes straight into one of these hot shoes that you really do need for your wardrobe! I want all of them! Oh, I don’t have room for them in my closet but when did that ever stop me? 😉
