east vs west [coast] style. lace.

lace. it never seems to go out of style and reappears every season in some shape or form. the best thing about lace is that it is totally wearable for everyone. you can go for a girly look like Ashley (Golden Divine) did, toughen it up with a masculine piece like Jackie and Tracy, or wear it in small doses like me, Ashley (Pursuit of Shoes), and Meaghan. but one thing is for sure, lace always lends a romantic vibe.
how do you wear lace?

don't forget to visit the girls.

east
Jackie / Living After Midnite / New York
Meaghan / District Sparkle / D.C.
Tracy / TheRightShoes / New York

west

Ashley / Golden Divine / California
Becks / oomph. / Hawaii


sometimes i dabble in extreme lace just for the fun of it, but the tomboy in me never feels 100% comfortable. instead, i like my lace in small doses or as accents. this sweater was right up my alley because it's essentially a versatile gray sweater from the front with a peek of lace in the back. to keep it cool in our warm weather, i paired it with some denim shorts and threw my hair up into a bun.

  16. I love lace, but I have a grabby cat, and I'm horribly clumsy so it always winds up torn and shredded and sadly ruined from being snagged on every possible snag. That's such a neat sweater though! Business in the front, lace party in the back!
