LBD (“AHS: Coven” Style)

Hello, readers! It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the blog (I apologize- my life has been hectic with work and school lately), but I’m back now, AND I have a new blog post for you! img_1493.jpg

As I’m sure you all know, I am a huge fan of black. Black is such a good color that can complement any skin color, outfit, and body type. Though usually my outfit posts consist of pops of color and a lot of patterns, I like to throw in some black once in awhile. Not to mention, a fair amount of my wardrobe consists of black clothing! From coats, to shirts, to leggings, to dresses, I am sure you’ll find all kinds of black clothes in my closet.

Think Pink (Part 2)

Hello, readers! Fall is just days away from starting, and as another season ends, another begins. With the transition of seasons for me, comes the transition of style for me. The warm, bright colors and patterns of summer are replaced by the cooler colors of fall (reds, browns, etc). As it is with every period of transition, it is time to say a bittersweet “goodbye” to summer, and to embrace the upcoming fall months with open arms. What better way to do that than a pretty, pink, feminine dress?!

This adorable dress I scored at Goodwill is PERFECT for a sendoff of summer, with its bright color and fun frilly straps.

Think Pink (Part 1)

Despite being the typical girly-girl, one thing I really have noticed is that there’s one color (aside from green, yellow, and orange) that my wardrobe really lacks: pink. Maybe it was I was tired of seeing it so much growing up (my room was filled with pink toys, decorations, etc), but either way, it seemed to disappear from my closet, being instead replaced with black and other darker colors. With these past few hot summer months and the changing of trends, I have found a new appreciation for pink, and I’m slowly incorporating more of it into my wardrobe again. So, for today’s post (which is part one of two parts), I decided to feature a cute pink dress, which I actually got as a hand-me-down from one of my besties, Marie!

Faux Leather & Lace Skirt

Happy Friday, readers! I’m back with another blog post and this time, it features two of my favorite fabrics: lace and pleather (fake leather). Though I’m sure you knew about my lace obsession (it’s in my blog’s name for a reason!), I am not so sure if you knew that I also love myself some faux leather every once in a while! So, with that in mind, for today’s post, I decided to don a nice sleeveless crop top shirt, and a cute little faux leather skirt (with a beautiful lace hem).

Though I caught myself on a lucky day where it was a bit cooler from the rain, this skirt is still perfect to wear on the warmer summer days, as long as it is not too thick and it fits the weather (i.e. not overdressing in faux leather leggings when it’s boiling hot outside).

Summer Florals and “Weddiquette”

With the turn of the seasons and the official start of summer upon us, comes the excitement of summer weddings. Weddings give you a chance to witness loved ones pledge their love for each other, sealing it with a vow and the beginning of their lives together. They are my absolute favorite, because who doesn’t love an occasion filled with love, fun, dancing, drinking, and good food?! Also, at least speaking for myself, I love any occasion that I can use as an excuse to dress up for, which includes weddings! The first thing that people always ask is, “what will I wear?” Well, for me, the dress featured in this post is the PERFECT wedding attire!

For this wedding season, despite the spring months already coming and going, I find flowers fitting for such an occasion. In my opinion, flowers are appropriate no matter the time of year, and their symbolism of love and affection really fits when it comes to attending a wedding! Nothing beats a good pop of color, and do not let anyone else say otherwise! Weddings are supposed to be fun, so don’t be afraid to wear a fun, bold (but appropriate) dress!

Modern Day Cleopatra Vibes

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a history nerd. While I’m not the most knowledgeable in terms of Egyptian history, I have always been drawn to the idea of it. Pharaohs, cursed tombs, the pyramids, I love them all. When you think of Egypt, a lot of people think of one person: Cleopatra. For me, today’s outfit (which is definitely one of my favorites to ever grace the blog) gives me all the modern Cleopatra vibes. From the skirt’s pattern, to its length, to its shape, to my caged heels, I definitely felt like a modern day Cleopatra in this outfit!

Red Suede Dress

Hello, readers! So glad to finally be back making blog posts! It’s been a longggg winter here in Minnesota, but with it finally being May, the sun is out and the weather is warming up, and with that comes the blog posts once again!

For today’s post, I decided to feature this cute little number that I scored at Macy’s, during their HUGE closing sale (I got it for about $9!)! It’s so fun of a dress, and I’m so glad that it caught my eye last-second before I had almost given up my search for anything to buy while there shopping with family.

Disco Fever

2016 has come to an end, and with it, a new year and (hopefully) new opportunities for Lilacs&Lace. Some things that I know looking back on 2016 are that I have an even bigger vision for the blog this year, and that I have an even bigger appreciation of thrift stores. Why? Because I find dresses like the one featured in this post today! img_1197This dress was found in one of my many g0-to thrift stores, which I will be linking in the “Shop My Favorites” page! It is so comfy, with the silk slip below and the long sleeves. It’s nice and flowy too, so it is perfect as a casual dress, or one for an old-fashioned disco (because let’s be honest, that’s exactly what I thought of when seeing it!).  Continue reading

Regally Speaking

In case you haven’t notice, I love anything and everything involving royalty. Ever since I was young, I dreamed I was a princess. Even nowadays, I am obsessed with queens, particularly the history of monarchies. When given the opportunity to learn about them, I get all giddy, and maybe that’s just the history nerd in me, but I love it! With that in consideration, what is a better way to feel like a queen than wearing a beautiful high-collar shirt, with a ballroom-length skirt?!
