Romantic Lace

Hello Lovelies.

Well today's blog is all about the wonderfulness
of lace;a fabric which has been
known to exist from as far back as 
the 16th Century

Venice became one of  the most important 
trading centres of lace

Lace mantillas can still be seen being
worn in Catholic churches around the world.



In Spain it is still a common sight to see
women wearing black mantillas on Good Friday.
I am always amazed by the sight of the most
glamorous women walking to church on this day.

ELENA Pendant
Our Elena  pendant featuring Chantilly lace from 
the oldest lace-making house in Northern France; 
the same lace-making house used for the lace in Kate Middleton's 
wedding dress!
Also listed in Vogues "must-have" list 
There is also a heart version of this pendant

ELENA CUFF:

Again like our pendant above, the cuff features Chantilly lace from 
the oldest lace-making house in Northern France; 
the same lace-making house used for the lace in Kate Middletons 
wedding dress!
Also listed in Vogues "must-have" list 


Whilst writing this post I realized
I don't actually own any lace clothing :-(

So are you a "lacey-lady"?
Do you love wearing lace?
Do you only wear it for special occasions/evening wear?


Would love to hear your thought as always

  3. I've been adding bits of lace to my dresses recently, a flounce of cotton eyelet, a deep, lavish sweep of black lace. :-) It makes me happy. :-)

  7. A fabulous post! I love themed posts like this one and lace is a favourite fabric of mine. It adds a touch of glamour and femininity to an outfit. I don't just wear it for special occasions. I have a favourite cream lace top which I often wear with jeans. I like the mix of fabrics in the second image and the Elena cuff.
