Lace Me Up

There is something mysterious and alluring about lace that I simply cannot resist. Perhaps it is the juxtaposition between demure and suggestive, revealing just enough to make your heart skip a beat. Whether it is adorned on killer heels, a small clutch, a slimming dress or (my personal favorite) a long sleeve top, lace is presenting itself everywhere.

Television fashion icons Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker channel their inner fashionista in a knee length black lace dress. Pair it over a black mini dress and you leave just enough for the imagination.


 Emma Watson & Zoe Saldana both possess a sassy spin on the black cocktail dress

Kristen Cavallari in a black lace skirt
The ultimate siren, Sophia Loren in a lace top

                        In any form lace adds a splendid touch of romance and mystique

Grab and go with a lovely clutch that has much pizazz

Louboutin peep toe

Valentino bootie

Michael Kors lace dress

Looks beautiful even on a cake

Or on your nails

The intricacy of this fabric has me smitten. Keep the color traditional in black, white or tan as the neutral colors subdue the fanciful look and beware your inner femme fatale may emerge...


  1. Love the lace wedding cake! : )

  2. Thank you! lace looks great on so many things

  3. i am severely into lace right now. I just bought a peach lace racerback tank top that i can't wait to wear this summer. i am also making quite a few new things for my shop, re-purposing vintage lace table cloths.
