Inspiration

1. Erdem - Cecile Lace Dress, Navy/Stone - $2,850.00
2. Valentino - Cap-Sleeve Lace Dress - $5,980.00
3. Nanette Lepore - Last Kiss Lace Dress - $378.00


I've always loved lace but it doesn't really fit into my lifestyle so I tend to stay away.

Until this little thing caught my eye...


The bit of lace peeking out is very feminine, playful, and sexy without overdoing it. I think I should make a little lace trimmed petticoat to wear under full skirts and dresses.

For $59.99 at Target, I'm sure this is a nice dress. It's Jason Wu!!! (and I'm sure I'll find it on clearance in a month or two in my area.)

Still, I'd rather make it. (Because ummm, I need some length in the skirt, a non-white color, and good upper body fit...)

Dear Spring,

Hurry up.

Love, Nikia

I love the dresses you posted but I think you could probably make one now...just add a cardigan and make it from a more substantial fabric like wool crepe.
