Monthly Musings: Lovely Lace

Lacing Up. Elegant, romantic, charming and sophisticated.  No ladies, I’m not referring to Mr. Clooney – I’m talking about this season’s hottest trend, LACE!  Lace is back and more glamorous than ever. Forget about its confines to wedding dresses and grandmother’s tea gloves because this open-work fabric has transformed into a modern, and dare I say sexy, trend that is taking over all aspects of style!  Decorate your home with unique lace accents, from table settings to light bulbs {seriously, how chic are these?}.  For the party planner struggling to find that finishing décor detail, add an accent of crochet to your table with a modernized doily or embellished dishes. For those in need of a creative release, use a stencil and spray paint light bulbs to make them appear as if they have been draped with lace. If arts and crafts aren’t your forte, update your wardrobe with a great lace skirt, shorts, shoes, romper or even cape. This light, elegant and sexy fabric is perfect for the warm summer months.  And for the bride who dreams of white lace in her sleep, go beyond the stunning dress by adding delicate chantilly trim to your bouquet or wrapping cupcakes in a sleeve of lace for a cute dessert decoration. This traditional fabric has transformed into a modern, yet still classically romantic, trend that we absolutely love this season!
