State of Lace

by jennine on October 4, 2010

First of all, I just want to say thank you to everyone’s kind thoughts about my grandmother. It really meant a lot to have your support. I just arrived back from Hawaii this morning, and am getting back to work. It was good to have the time to sort things out, but in the end I really missed work too. One day there will be balance!

It’s been a while since I posted an outfit,and recently I’ve even posted this same Joie Elvia Lace Blouse. To tell the truth, I love wearing this blouse. It was a gamble, because of it’s high neck line and wide sleeves, but I have to say when I wear it, it feels so right, even though it was a total spurge for me, the difference between something picked up from a fast fashion house and something a bit higher in quality really shows by the fifth wear. I’m not worried about sending to to the cleaners, or how it’s going to stretch out next time.

After being gone for a month, it was so nice to come home and have access to my entire wardrobe. The things I had in New York were great, but I stupidly forgot my AG Goldsign Lotus jeans. I’d been looking for the perfect pair of a mid-rise wide-legged jean, and came across these in a Gilt sale, and it was a no-brainer. Being stuck in the skinny jeans mentality, it was a bit of a challenge to really own the wide-legged trouser look, as it takes a while for an idea to manifest in personal style. I personally experience a slow boil when it comes to trying out new looks. That’s not a bad thing!

Wendy has been wearing these clear-framed Prada sunglasses that are totally covetable. I just had to get my own pair in black. I couldn’t find them online, but you can get them at the  Prada store. At $205, they aren’t too expensive, for good sunglasses anyway.

the lace is really solid, and yeah, that’s what drycleaning is for!

i love them!

I love the seventies-appeal of your styling here- the lace is pretendingly-naughty with its see-thruness but doesn’t reveal anything and the pants make just the perfect match!

That top is so killer!

Does that top have a shell lining? I have a similar lace top without a lining. How do you wear it without the lining? Are you wearing a bandeau? I’d love your advice!

no, i wear it with a nude colored bra. :)

You look amazing in that outfit! I must say I have fallen in love with your sunglasses, they are gorgeous!
I just posted a drawing I did of Dior’s Spring collection of a model with cat-eye sunnies, they are probably my favourite accessory!

Love the lace! I like this outfit a lot! I like wide legged pants because it reminds me of the pants my mother wore back in the 70s. :)

You look gorgeous and this is trend-on for spring (you’re so ahead!). Perfection!

(Been thinking about you…I lost my dad the same time you lost your grandmother. Makes one rethink a lot, doesn’t it? Hope everything else is improving.)

That lace top is incredibly pretty. And the bag. And you.

My condolences regarding your grandmother. It’s hard to lose a loved one, the heart hurts regardless of mental acceptance. My thoughts and prayers are with you & your family.

I love the lace blouse in combination with that embroidered bag. The jeans keep everything from seeming too precious: they’re the perfect casual note to this outfit.
