lace up

No, not your sneakers.  Its time to tap into your feminine side by adding some lace to your summer wardrobe, so stash that LBD in the back of the closet and replace it with a white crochet or lace frock for summer festivities.  If you are the sort that dresses with a more minimalist approach, never fear, you don't have to be all boho about it--lace dressing can be rock and roll or just plain cool, as in this Trina Turk Belted Serpentine Lace Dress.  I like the color and the leather in the belt makes it more edgy.  My other favorite is Topshop's Cream Lace 50's Dress with its gorgeous overlay and sexy back.
Today I found an awesome pair of lace shorts, stay with me here, at H&M and they are fantastic!  They are a very soft pink lace paperbag style, and I paired them with a super sheer top of the same color with a cami underneath and tucked in to show the paperbag waist. I think they will be also be great with a solid tank in black or white and chunky wedges.  Sorry to say I do not have a link to show you but lets just say its love love love.  They are a great length and are beautiful me.
No one holds a candle to Valentino when its comes to a lace embellished handbag, but if you are not wanting to invest in that little piece of loveliness, there are several great selections at that fit the bill in a more reasonable price range. Personally, I would go vintage when it comes to accessories.  Check out eBay or hunt through your neighborhood consignment or vintage clothing stores for unique pieces that are trendy but original.  I am going to have to go with the only place I am not wild about lace is on my feet...just doesn't work for me.....don't do it.
Of course the most popular lace is what goes underneath, but that is an easy one.  Hanky Panky, Cosabella, or Commando all make lovely lacy things that make the lacy number on the outside look all the better.
