Inspiration: Lace

Quite simply, I love lace. For me, the fabric holds connotations of romance and religious ceremonies (its original purpose was to be worn by the clergy in the Catholic Church). Whether in black or white, the whimsical fabric is so feminine, enduring and demure. Over the last few seasons, it has become more and more popular with dresses and blouses becoming staples in mine and my friends' wardrobes.

I leave you with some inspiration from those girls who really know how to work it...

Im in love with lace myself but i find it really uncomfortable to wear sometimes!.. i really like the images though and would love to have the black lacey dress that blake lively is wearing <3

It would be good to see some outfit posts of lace too, just a suggestion :)

Love lace! Blake Lively just does everything right. Sigh.

At the moment I'm particularly fond of cream lace, I can't get enough!
