Lady in Lace


Lace has been all over the runways this year! Everything from lace pants to even lace shoes, the fabric is everywhere we turn and we LOVE it!

Some might say “ehh lace, I’m not sure it seems a little old school”, but no! When paired the right way, you’ll look like you stepped right off the catwalk!

Louis Vuitton, Erdem, Preen,  and Oscar de la Renta love the lace trend as much as we do!

My favorite lace piece for spring are these Urban Outfitter’s cream colored, cropped pants! Bonus: They are high waisted!

Take a tip from Kate Hudson in Something Borrowed and scoop up some lace shorts!

Chase the Lace


A hot trend for this season is LACE. And why wouldn’t it be, it is elegant and timeless! To me it can be worked into every season. Paired with a skirt in the spring, a pair of white shorts in the summer, a blazer in the fall, and with tuxedo pants in the winter!

It can be spotted all over the streets of New York and the runway of course!

Carolyn got racy in black lacy at the Agent Provacateur NYC store opening!

Black lace has a great chic and sultry feel, especially when worn over neutral garments.

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, looked stunning in a navy lace dress!

You can imagine my excitement when I found a similar top at H&M in NYC! So chic and regal! A navy lace top was the perfect edition to my lace and Kate Middleton obsession!

Kate’s Erdem Lace Dress: about £1,500

H&M Hidden Gem: $24.95

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!
