Hello there! I’m Melanie and it’s a pleasure to meet you! I’m a blogger, pr enthusiast and actress living in the oh-so-magical city of New York. I’m originally from San Diego and went to college in the San Francisco Bay Area. After finishing my degree, I knew it was time for a big change, so I packed up all my things in two suitcases and moved across the country. New York has been a crazy adventure so far, but I definitely fall more in love with the city all the time.
I’ve loved fashion since I was young, although fashion did not always love me. My mom used to have pictures on her refrigerator of me in a sky blue polka dot one piece, eating spaghetti on the floor. Mind you, we were indoors, it was probably winter, and I wasn’t going swimming. This is probably where my love for clothes began. My love for writing and taking photos of pretty much everything around me started quickly afterwards.
I started Lace and Combat Boots to chronicle the things I love from fashion to vintage. I write about the adventures I somehow find myself stumbling upon, the flea markets I fall in love with, and the food I gorge on. Essentially, you’ll be here for everything, big and small.
I totally understand – I’ve been blogging for a while now (actually started one way back in the day – do you remember Xanga and Live Journal?) so there’s a lot of different posts to browse. Here are some of my most popular posts:
