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.

wedding dress!

wedding dress!

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


  1. My daughter has just purchased her wedding dress, you'll have to wait till next June to see if there is any lace xx

  2. Ooh I love lace Vanessa and there is something about it that is always romantic and sexy when done right.


  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. :-)

    1. Wow! You multi-talented lady.
      Hope you are enjoying the summer in Oz :-) x

  5. Great post! I definitely love lace, and I dont reserve it for special occasions. There's just something incredibly sexy about lace.

  6. I adore lace, but it has to have the right amount in clothes and look classy. It can be sooo beautiful! xo Caroline

  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.
