Don’t get me started about lace. Ever since I stopped wearing my “Pink” products with the Pink logo stamped on the butt, I was immediately drawn to lace. Lace bras and lace underwear. There’s something about lace that’s evidently sexy, but its also extremely comfortable! Anyway, once I stocked up on lace undergarments I eventually moved to bigger things. I’ve been loving the recent lace skirt trend. Ever since Rihanna wore her beautiful black lace gown on the Red Carpet I fell in love with lace dresses.
The part that makes lace so interesting is that although its all sowed together, there are parts that show through. For example, take a look at how the lace lays on Rihanna’s skin here. This way the dress isn’t purely black, it has some definition through the spaces created by the way the lace was sowed together. I actually already have an adorable lace dress that I bought at BCBG, but I’ve been on the search for a lace skirt.
There are a bunch of places I found lace dresses on, but I check out this site for some easy quick results: http://www.result.ly/Search/lace%20skirt I also found a beautiful lace skirt at Niemans. Its absolutely gorgeous, but unfortunately its a little pricy.
This DKNY skirt is short of $400, but from the details of the lace you can see how much attention to detail and work was put into the dress. I love that the top is a solid lace, and once you reach mid thigh its a sheer lace. As much as I like this skirt it might be hard to pull it off, but if you have the confidence (and pair it with the right top) you can make it work. So, for this specific lace skirt I would pair it with either a black crop top, white crop top, or a white or black body suit that could be tucked into the skirt.
Whenever I see a pricy item, before I buy it, I always check Forever 21 to see if I could find something similar there. And guess what? I happened to find a really cute lace skirt on Forever 21 on their website.
While I love the DKNY skirt, the Forever21 can be worn on a more casual occasions. I love to buy nice going out clothes, but I have to convince myself EVERY time that it is better to invest in something I could wear on a daily basis. Soooo, I made a wise choice and just ordered the Forever 21 lace skirt. If you can’t already see the top of the skirt has a small nude skirt beneath the lace, and the rest is more transparent. I also like that this skirt is a midi skirt. I’ve been collecting some midi skirts, and they’re perfect for the winter! My mom always tells me I don’t wear enough skirts and dresses, so I’ve been trying to find some good skirts for the cold weather. Hopefully this skirt will look as good on me as on the model! In conclusion, I am on my way to collecting a whole lace closet.
