Embrace the Lace


Lace has been popping up everywhere; from mini dresses at the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards to gowns at the Met Gala…lace is a summer must-have! Lace can sometimes make me a bit nervous because when paired incorrectly, it can look like a doily you got off your grandmother’s coffee table! However, I was at TJ’s and saw a fabulous lace…purse! Can you believe it! Lace on a purse? How unique! It was a perfect piece to add to my summer wardrobe.

This gem is white leather adorned with lace and gold accents.

I sported this in the Hidden Gems S/S photo shoot and I must say, it looks fabulous paired with my vintage yellow and white romper, a chunky pearl and gold statement necklace, and some metallic wedges!

Look at these “Miss Sicily” handbags Dolce and Gabbana sent down their S/S 2011 runway! Looks just like mine!

  1. Whoa! I love the lace bag, such a find. You know I love the lace too- my problem is keeping things white. I can barely make it an hour without spilling something on it.
