Whether it's Spanish, Venetian, or Chantilly, lace is all around us this season. The intricately romantic details of this fabric look as radiant on a bride for her wedding day as it does on a girl hitting the town. Dress it up or dress it down, it's timeless, glamorous, and charming for any affair. I usually opt for cream, white, or blush lace for summer months but it seems anything goes this season and black is also an great option (especially in cocktail dresses). How do you wear lace during summer months?

I love white lace in spring/summer. It's so feminine and always classic. Love your picks, especially number 1!

I bought an amazing off white lace long tank from urban and when I was in London a couple of months ago my cousin loved it so much I gave it to her! Now I think I need a new one so these are great options. Thanks!

Gabriel said...

I gotta say I don't own any lace, but I think it would look nice on you. So I fully support the lace trend.

Elle said...

I have to say I only own one thing that has any sort of lace on it and I love it! I don't know why I don't have more lace items.... that blazer is stunning... not sure it would look great with my style (perhaps that's why I don't have more lace?)... but on the right girl, that blazer would rock! Great picks Valerie!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ah, lace is one of my favorite things. I actually wear it layered over thin camisoles myself. :)

Lace is so feminine and is a perfect accent to any outfit. Sadly, I don't own any pieces right now, but that will change. I just love it in blush.

Torrie said...

Ms. Emily Ann said...

I am loving lace right now! In fact I even have it on my bed spread :) I love a lace dress, skirt or top.. As long as it's in a light color and feminine, I don't think it can be done wrong.

dulci said...

Valerie - #1 and #3 are my faves. So completely beautiful. What are you thinking?

La Société de Mode | The Fashion Society said...

Lace has made such a splash on the runway this past season as well! I love the Modcloth modern lace blazer in particular. I unfortunately don't own much lace at teh moemnt, but since I go to school in Boston where it is cold, I would probably wear a lace dress over leggings with a scarf and a coat!

I love lace! I stopped in at Marciano lately, not a store I usually shop in but I was curious and spotted a gorgeous white lace top that just screamed summer!

Josie said...

Oooh, I love numbers 1 and 5! I swear, your taste is absolutely flawless. I think that when done well, lace can just be so chic.

Valerie - what a score over at Splendid!! It's going to be smashing on you for sure. Hope you don't have to sit on any rocks to get the pictures (hehe).

Thanks for your comment on the spill. I didn't even think anyone would comment at all so much appreciated. I'm hoping to see more celebrities out there soon - simply because of the spotlight they bring with them. It's time for all those parties to get on the same page and get it fixed instead of pointing fingers. So sad.

Let's have a great 4th in spite of it all!! Thanks again for your kind comments and great finds! xoxo-Carrie

Punctuation Mark said...

i love Modcloth... they have such great things at great prices... have a great weekend!

Kate said...

Ooh, I love number one & two so much!! I need to grow my lace collection, I only have one lace tank, but I am really loving these lace dresses - so romantic, and I think the white dress would look amazing with black tights and ankle booties in the fall/winter, too!

Bridget said...

loove those. i got an awesome lacey shirt at h&m and it was like $20!
