Inspiration: Lace

One of my favorite trends is lace over a dress.  One of my least favorite trends are those lace shorts I’ve been seeing women wear.  The difference between the two is what they do for a woman’s body.  The dress is cute and feminine.  It makes women look like they are women and adorable while doing so.   The shorts are always too baggy in the back or too short or too long or too something.  It’s a great idea.  It should breath and keep you cool but it never flatters a figure while being worn.  However I will take these shorts every day over a lace crop top.  Although a super cute idea they can go from fashion genius to fashion desister in less time than it takes for the top to be put on.  When worn with high wasted pants, they are great but many times in practical situations they are the first to break the rule of the belly button.  You can show mid-drift but either above or below the belly button.  It’s the easiest way to keep things classy.  So here are some of my favorite lace pieces.  I’m almost finished making my own high-waisted lace skirt.  I can’t wait to show you all when it’s finished.
