Let's Talk About Lace

So I just finished watching Oscar de la Renta's Spring/Summer 2013 collection runway show and I'm super inspired. Some of you may know, but I visited Oscar HQ in August and saw how his signature lace and embroidery is made. It was absolutely stunning to see the careful process of producing such couture. Lace is so delicate and soft, it gives a garment a certain kind of "fragileness" if you get what I'm saying. Lace is timeless, classy and oh so charming. There's just something about the way it covers but doesn't cover at the same time; the holes aren't as revealing as a low-cut or something along those line, but it keeps the eyes wondering. 
 Lace and embroidery are two of my favorite materials/pattens in fashion. There's a certain way to style them that makes them rare and anything rare is usually fabulous. It's not a style that I get sick of, and I love seeing it on runways every year styled in a different way. Lace can be for all seasons. I saw it last February during NYFW Fall fashion week and I just saw it on the runway at Oscar de la Renta's spring show. Lace is always in. I mean, you have to be careful with how you wear it and definitely don't overdo it, but it's classic. It isn't going anywhere. I'll leave you with that. Think about lace and how you love to wear it or see it worn.
Be charming.
