Never Fall From Lace








Lace can be added to any detail of an outfit from a dress to top to shorts to even shoes. Lace is always going to up the girliness of any outfit even jean shorts. Lace is a way to add an interesting unique pattern to an item. When you wear lace you instantly feel more delicate and ladylike. Lace can make a look more demure and romantic, but can be used to create a little bit of an edge at the same time.

When you are looking for items with lace I think you need to look more for those items that use antique looking lace. I just think they have a prettier pattern and they are more sturdy. I think lace looks fabulous paired with other fabrics. The one downside I have to lace is I do not like a lot of lace in one look.

  2. I agree! I love lace, but in small portions. My wish list has white lace shorts on them, like these: http://pinterest.com/pin/58970865/

    Thank you so much for the recipes you post on my blog! It means a lot knowing that you took the time to gather them up. I'm torn between Italian Stuffed Shells and the Ziti and Bruschetta. I'm leaning towards the shells. I have wanted to try that for so long. As for the dessert, I live in Thailand where it's hard to find cool whip and candy bars such as milkyways. I think we might just have a sundae night or something because we are going on vacation the next day and I don't want to let the cake go to waste! Next week, I will search your blog for more dessert recipes. I love baking MUCH more than cooking. I'm not great at either, but baking is just so sweet and fun :)

    Oh and I have an inspiration "wall" in my bedroom right now. I think I'm going to get a corkboard or something to make it look tidier! Thanks for all the tips again.
