Love this selection! There's nothing more ladylike and chic yet edgy as lace... especially for the Fall months! Adore the Chanel and Dior pieces. Oh, and I think Must get those long fingerless gloves.. an update to the Madonna look! Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

That first black dress with those adorable shoes...I die. Soooo gorgeous. And I am aching for that Chanel couture dress with the gloves. I'm going to be daydreaming about lace gowns all day now. :)

Erika said...

I truly don't think there is anything more feminine than a touch of lace. Loving the Phillip Lim Resort piece - wouldn't it be the most fabulous frock to say "I Do" in? :)

tiltumaria said...

I love lace! I'm obsessed with this one dress, but sadly can't afford it!

Tights Lover said...

Great post. Who doesn't love lace? The Chanel Couture dress was my favorite.

Why am I just seeing these Chloe tights for the first time now? Where can I get them??

Have a great day!

Tights Lover said...

Thanks so much, Carrie! That was so fast!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Lace done right is so amazingly chic! I am in love with the Colette Dinningan resort dress. Paired with some great heels, that dress would own the night. I also love the Stela McCartney suit. The juxtaposition of structure and tailoring with the softness of the lace is great.

Mmm, I LOVE that Christian Dior couture =) That picture is absolutely beautiful.
I love lace...I think it's beyond sexy =)

Opé - Style Artist said...

I am loving lace. I was facing challenges with styling it outside of showcasing nudity as far as interpretation in editorials, it definitely adds more shock value in editorals but I do love the romantic aspect of the utilization of lace this season.
Plus I love Dior's take.

Great post.

ZY(Zakuro Yugo) said...

Most laces are using sexy ways!
Chanel's S/S 10 seemed to look cute.
Valentino looks elegant and sensual!

The best lacy way i think is stoic Prada's A/W08-09.

It is good that you like Viveka Bergstrom's jewels!!
I just thought that her many jewels fit for you:)

Taylor Sterling said...

amazing, I love lace. I want that all white dress!! xx
