Lace Love

I'm out of touch with fashion. It was only last week that I discovered the April issue of French Vogue featuring Gisele on the cover. The magazine caught my eye through a store window while on a walk through SOHO. Needless to say, I've thought about it since. Mostly because of the lace - my latest obsession and flair of choice.

Let's face it, there's nothing wrong with showing a little lace. Where's the harm? Feminine, delicate, timeless - I'm loving the lace. I'm loving how it reminds of when I went to Burano, the Venetian island that specializes in lace. I'm loving how it softens any look, how it evokes another era. Ah, lace. Lace love. Love.

Grace Kelly becomes a princess - wearing lace.

Julia Ormond falls in love with Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall - wearing lace.

How gorgeous is this photograph of Gisele? I learned that Dolce & Gabbana designed the dress she's wearing on the cover. After a quick skip over to, I discovered these dresses from the Spring 2011 collection. Like I said, I'm a little out of touch when it comes to fashion. Better late than never...especially when it comes to lace.
