Lanvin F/W 2011
I love the little lace dress. Like a little black dress but more special. Lace always exudes sensuality and romance, and plays the double game of cover and reveal. This season lace takes the form of simple but pretty little dresses, the prettiest being Lanvin of course!
Marc Jacobs F/W 2011
Then there is the super sexy and sophisticated Marc Jacobs cap sleeve red stunner. Overall, it’s rare that I like a Marc Jacobs collection so much (even though I’m a Marc by Marc Jacobs fan). Maybe it’s because the lace pieces remind me so much of Prada’s stunning F/W 2008 collection.
Blumarine F/W 2011
And there are fun youthful ones without much structure — something a lazy girl like me would throw on, pair with heels and be ready to go. I love Blumarine’s little breezy 1960s tunic style lace dresses in an array of colours, from purple to red to bright lemon yellow.
Alice and Olivia F/W 2011
This charming little Alice and Olivia dress is probably the one that we could potentially afford. Plus it’s very Blair Waldorf and that’s always a good thing!
Erdem Pre-Fall 2011
Last but not least is Erdem, who always has something lace every season. Recently, of course, he catapulted to everyone’s must-have list after Duchess Catherine (Kate) wore his blue Pre-Fall dress with lace sleeves. I suppose this one would be considered a bit too risque for royalty. But I’ll gladly take it!
I’ll definitely do a “budget” version of this post come fall. Love lace.
