hi friends!

today, i have clothes on the brain. and it’s funny, working in the fashion world, you would think that being surrounded by all things fashion would convince me to become an overactive participant {read: shopaholic}.  rather, it has made me super choosy, and i find that there are only a handful of trends i truly adore.

and today, it is lace.

i am still enamored with mademoiselle cotillard’s marvelous feature in this month’s vogue and this image of her in this stunning dolce & gabbana lace dress has me loving this hopelessly romantic material.

unlike my favorite fashion crush, donning head to toe lace doesn’t jive with my city boheme style. however, infusing darling bits of it as accents to my ensemble, even my home, is right up my alley.

so without further ado, here are a few of my favorite lace pieces that i have been daydreaming about. the 3.1 phillip lim racer back lace panel tank is super chic, the beyond vintage top couldn’t be more enchanting and those lace votives! love.
