Lace, Aztec and Leather | OOTD

I love lace.... Even moreso, I love black lace and I love leather look clothing too. Regardless of what style I'm feeling day to day, these standard preferences never change so imagine my delight at discovering Hybrid and their top that encompasses all of these on trend features.

Ravina Lace Blouse with Leather Collar c/o Hybrid

The Hybrid Ravina Lace Blouse with Leather Collar is slightly different to your usual statement top but a statement none the less. A nice bit of stretch and movement, the top goes up to a size 18 and is also available in Oxblood. At it's best with the collar buttoned right up and I think a nice little ribbon bow would work really nicely, however I'm loving my School Gate Style Shop Necklace with it here. I teamed it with an old Matalan silver swing skirt (similar here) and some Asos rings. The biker boots are last year's also and they came from Internacionale (similar here).

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I've deviated from my usual photograph spots. I'm sure I'll fill you all in soon but for now, pop over and visit Hybrid, you'll want to see their dresses, trust me!

Leather collars, are we all for them? I've GOT to try this under a jumper too!

Places on my wishlist

More and more lately I've found myself creating dream wishlists of places to visit. The list has gotten quite extensive now and grows weekly. 

First on the list is inspired by a trip to London with my grandparents when I was little. I don't remember much about the trip and it's one I've always wanted to do again. There's one store I've dreamed of visiting for so long now as well and I really would love to see it in real life... Harrods.

A department store like no other, I've been spending too much time reading store guides and reviews on Harrods. Can you imagine a pop up fine dining restaurant in a department store? They even house exhibitions and there are salons! Did I mention there's a champagne bar!?

As if that weren't mind blowing enough (and it is, to me) Urban Retreat's exciting new Moroccan Hammam is opening it's doors soon and I really love the sound of it. I'm longing for some blissed out time.

There's even a Toy Kingdom!

I've been to the Mall of America and even though it was incredibly big it didn't have the luxury appeal of Harrods.

 Whilst I'm planning a dream trip to London, I may as well add Afternoon Tea at Claridge's too, sure why not! Oh and of course I'd take in a show at the West End (dream come true!) and the Tate Modern. All on The List.

Is there anywhere else I need to add to The List?
