Lace me up

Hi, I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had a lovely weekend and had some great time with friends and family. This post is dedicated to a classic lace piece. When I was recently reading my Lucky Magazine, they were giving ways to dress up or dress down your lace. In order to accomplish this, you need a piece that will withstand more than one season. I have seen many lace dresses lately, but before I decided on one I took into consideration what were my goals for my piece. I wanted a versatile lace dress that would be fantastic worn by itself and one that I could dress down to look like a skirt. So, that is how I decided on this lace dress from F21 that has a pencil skirt bottom.

When I am looking for a classic piece I often look at high end designers. Dresses like this lace dress by Valentino will stand the test of time, but not for my wallet. So, my Forever 21 was a close substitute.

For my dress down look, I pair this lace dress with a military style vest and denim shirt.

Do you wear lace? What is you favorite way to wear it?

  1. I love how you layered the dress. Right on trend and the key is mixing it with more casual pieces as you did. I have that vest!

  2. Great layering. Love the lace dress.

    I don't own much lace. In fact, I think I just have 1 skirt. Must change that.

  3. I'm impressed,(but certainly not surprised) by your usual thoughtful approach to making this dress work in different ways. And I'm guessing you'll make about fifty outfits using it either as a base or an addition! Such a great purchase for you ... and a very pretty piece on you.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you ...
