How to Show off your Minnetonkas!

While we’ve briefly mentioned these great shoes before, we wanted to bring them back and give everyone some tips on wearing them. Minnetonka Moccasins have definitely become a favorite shoe for fashionistas in the recent years, but it’s hard for most to imagine how to wear them other than just with a pair of boot cut jeans.

You can wear the moccasins themselves with a cute little skirt, or even with skinny jeans. Pair it with a tunic top and you’ll look fashionable but still be completely comfortable!

The boots give a bit more variety to your wardrobe. Wear them with a skirt, dress, tuck your jeans into them, the options are endless. The bohemian vibe that these shoes seem to give off is perfect for the summer.

Come check out all the different Minnetonkas that we have to offer in our retail location and our online store!

Newest Fashion Trend – Blee Inara Charms

Ivonne Kino, creator of the Blee Inara line of bracelets, necklaces and other great additions for your jewelry box, first got the idea from her mother who resided in Mexico. When Ivonne’s first child was born, her mother gave her an eye charm for her baby to wear for protection.

Since then, Ivonne has created a line of jewelry that people can find meaning in. Her line is inspired by a sense of harmony, bliss, goodwill and peace. Designed to look good even when layered, her jewelry is fashionable and will help to remind you of the good things in life.

Featured in Glamour and Sports Illustrated, we at Denim and Lace now bring these gorgeous bracelets to you (prices range from $22-35). Whether you buy one or twenty for yourself or your friends, you’ll create an unforgettable look.

The accessories contain the all seeing eye of protection, which is a universal spiritual symbol representing spiritual sight, inner vision, high knowledge and insight, much like the eye that appears on the $1 bill. It’s also worn as protection against the “evil eye” ~ spooky!

Walking Tall – The Illusion of Cropped Pants

For most women, we all have problems areas. For myself, being 5’2″, it’s my legs. I don’t want to wear high heels everyday for the rest of my life, so what other options are there to looking taller?It’s simple:

Cropped pants.

Now, cropped pants can be tricky. If you pick the wrong style for your body, it can actually make you appear shorter (we’re here to help prevent that thought)!! If you’re looking to elongate your body, then go for a style that is more fitted and tapered at the bottom, like the style below. We have several different varieties in store, so we’ll be able to match the perfect pair to your body type.

Here are a few other tips for you:

  • Wear them with heels! It adds a touch of class to your outfit, plus, it will make your calves look amazing.
  • Choose neutral colors. Besides being able to match your pants to almost anything in your wardrobe, you’ll have the added benefit of seeming slimmer on bottom.
  • Wear them to work or on the weekends. Cropped pants can be dressed up or down, all depending on what shoes and tops they are paired with.
