Faux Leather and Lace

Here's a favorite from my Charlotte Russe outing in Manhattan Mall the other day. And to dispel confusion, no, Charlotte Russe does not carry maternity. I just size up and look for empire and waist-free tops.

Let me bullet-list my every thought here:

  • If only every day of pregnancy could be so black and tactile;
  • The vinyl jacket is $29.95 and the lace top is $18.99;
  • Yes, I may wear the H&M Mama drop-crotch pants every day for the next 3 1/2 months;
  • I love how the mags say lace is out and lingerie is in;
  • If ever you are pregnant, you must shop Charlotte Russe and freak-out teenage shoppers.
Here's the strapless top by itself:

Finally, I don't think leather and lace can be mentioned together without a Stevie Nicks video. Sorry, Henley fans, but I chose this one for the lace dress, cape, and incredible feathered hair:

Never enough Stevie! And I love the idea of yo pregnant ass sauntering into Charlotte Russe for the express purpose of terrorizing teens.
