Hello, “Lilacs&Lace” readers/followers! I’m sorry for the hiatus between blog posts! Unfortunately, due to my work schedule, I have been too busy to return home to Eau Claire, which is where my friend (and amateur photographer) Mackenzie is. I take a lot of time planning these posts out, and a lot of effort goes into them. This planning includes: choosing the outfit, accessories, hairstyle, and makeup, as well as picking the days and locations of the shoots. The last part of the planning would be choosing the post’s name and date of when it will be posted. Because of the lack of posts I’ve had lined up, and the fact that I don’t have the time, money, or resources to post everyday, I planned these posts (along with the past posts) accordingly so they weren’t so clustered together, with weeks of very few posts going on.
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, on to the post! As you can tell by my blog’s name, I’m kind of a fan of lace. To me, lace has always been one of my go-to choices in clothing. I always said I should’ve been born earlier, and I think my taste in clothes really supports that theory.
Aside from fringe and the like, lace was a fabric of clothing that was worn years, even centuries ago, and I can see why. It’s a beautiful pattern, which you could always layer, like I’m doing in this post, or wear it plain. Either way, it looks amazing! Lace adds a vintage and very sexy element to any outfit, and it’s so versatile that it could be worn on really any occasion! If you don’t have any lace in your closet or dresser, I’d suggest getting some ASAP!
Another thing I love is Victoria’s Secret PINK. I am OBSESSED with that store, and I don’t know if I’ll ever not be obsessed with Victoria’s Secret. I just love their clothes, and their intimates are cute (though a bit pricey). For this look, I decided to highlight some of my favorite PINK clothing items that I have in my collection right now. I paired a blue lace bralette with a v-necked, crouched shirt, a blue and black patterned skirt, and some adorable accessories to top it all off!
