For the Love of a Frock


There are some fabrics for which I am a sucker, and lace is absolutely one of them. It is subtle but sexy, sober but sultry and incredibly versatile! This lace frock is one of the most adroit items in my closet; I have worn it to the office, to baby showers, on a date and even to a wedding. Not only is the cut and length universally appropriate, but the color and the structure of the lace gives it ubiquitous appeal.


What are the items in your closet that are universals? The dress in which you always feel beautiful, the jacket that seems to make everything look professional, the shoes that get you high stepping?



N.B. I picked up those Mac by Marc Jacobs shoes at a swap...

Have a wonderful long weekend, fellow fashionistas! I hope you all have lots of fun planned. I look forward to the Memorial Day holiday every year - it seems like the whole summer is stretched out in front of you, filled with visions of lemonade, barbecues and days at the beach!

  3. My go-to dress is a black and white 3/4 sleeve wrap dress. I never feel fat in it and I can dress it up or down, add a camisole to make it more conservative... the possibilities are endless!

    You look adorable. Great color on you!

  7. @The Blonde @ Stylish3 Oh, a wrap dress is a good, universal dress! I can wear one the day after I indulge in, say Chinese Buffett, and still feel svelte! They are always appropriate! Good choice.
