When it comes to trends, I’d say I’m usually a “late adopter” (in techie-speak).
Yup, I’m afraid of commitments – especially when they require money and bold fashion choices. I wont be the girl who rocks the latest suspenders Forever 21 is pushing, nor would I have been the blonde with feather hair extensions walking down the street in the spring before they became all the rage in the early summer.
But I do notice them! Some trends I notice and need to see a few more times on the street before they win me over, but others I embrace wholeheartedly right away. An example of the latter? LACE.
Here are my current favorite lacey items from the stores and designers that are loving the lace this season:
for those who want lace with an edge
for making the most of those summer nights
for the hipsters
And the prize for loveliest lace goes to…
for the Mad Men fans (and me… and apparently all of my friends!*)
for some lacey fun under the Banana Republic blazer that you thought you’d need when you started the job search and resigned yourself to becoming a “real person”***
*within about 48 hours of buying this dress, I found out that about 68%** of my female friends had purchased this dress.
***maybe that was just me?
