Chic Lace Pieces.

Lace is the epitome of timeless, dainty femininity — sort of like crochet’s more formal older sister (but I love crochet, too!). Flutter sleeves and scalloped edges will never go out of style! Below, a selection of my favorite lightweight lace pieces for the coming season. I am personally tempted by this collector’s edition lace nap dress — layer over a black half slip — and this gorgeous heirloom-looking embroidered blouse with lace detail.

  1. Oh, I love these picks! I really like lace but find that it can sometimes skew cheap if not done the right way … and all of these finds look more luxe. I would love to be have a civil ceremony in that Markarian dress! Going to bookmark it 🙂
