I would like to start off by saying that Mercedes Marie of Beyond Her Reality is one of my ultimate style crushes. This is because she struts her style with strength, sass and confidence. During my 30+ years of living, I have only started to embrace the woman that I am - mind, soul, and physical body - as of late. Mercedes' blog posts taught me about self-acceptance, and I can't help but absorb that same confidence she emits for myself.
I also admire how she embraces her curves and has mastered the art of dressing for her shape. Her style, to me, is feminine, classic, edgy and unapologetic - characteristics that also perfectly resonate with our brand.
Back in June, Mercedes styled our 97 clutch in two different ways. I was elated to see her stellar all-black looks, pictured below. Which look is your fave? Leather or lace?
