lace me up!

i blog on my phone. that means that i cannot predict the order in which the following image overload will appear (ooh the excitement!) but it has made me condense the selection very slightly, its one of my favourite trends at the moment.. and i think always has been. im not into girly lace and tend to wear mine with my trusty dm boots, but part of me secretly yearns to be a flapper and of course lace fits the bill nicely!
erdem have a couple of different ways of incorporating this into your everyday look, this lace coat is a super warm style staple and if youre out and about you dont have to suffer the icy drafts to be beautiful!

as i was saying before, i find full on lace a bit too ladylike and pretty, not that i am not both of those things (i hear my boyfriend laughing as i say that) but i prefer it with a bit more edge. this d&g piece uses black lace, which achieves this without clever additions of boots, leather jackets or dark lipstick.

and this silky, satiny, hints of pink affair is the exact opposite! i imagine this with a straw boater and white or tan brogues myself..

'red lace.' it conjures up images of those dodgey undies your ex got you for valentines, but no. surprisingly, erdem have switched my view with this sexy, but classy number. (what you wear underneath is up to you!)

hedleys? a nice plain shift with hints of lace around the hem.

erdem again. this time grey, which i prefer to all the white varieties! its easier to wear, and is a bit different, which im always looking out for! black trilby, waistcoat and brogues anyone?

an elegant take on it with nude heels, definately do this if youve got good legs, itll make them look as if theyve stretched a few inches. great for impressing a date, its both sweet and alluring withouy being too obvious about it!

it breaks my heart to say it, but i dont like the miu miu take on it. the collar is great, but if the chunky, baggy shape can make a catwalk model look like an oompa loompa, whats it going to do to little old me??

this is actually a loose knit top, but i wanted to show you that a black bodycon dress is a lifesaver under the more peekaboo styled pieces. why does it even have to be black?? go wild!! the lace over the top will make sure you wont get mistaken for a cirus performer and hidesl any bits that may had you shying away from the neon bodycon you thought was so on trend last year but hasnt quite made it out of the wardrobe.. oh, you did that too?!
