Style I Love: Tiered Lace and Ruffles and Confectionery Things13 August 2009 | by Jen in Frocks & Such
Perhaps it has to do with all the wedding imagery I’ve been looking at the past couple of months but lace has really grown on me. I don’t have a lot of lace in my wardrobe; it often seems too prim and Victorian for my taste. And cheap lace looks, well, cheap. But as you probably know, my wedding dress ended up being a pretty off-white lace. It doesn’t have any tiers but it could have! The pretty combination of frothy, lacy layers is so feminine and decadent. And in soft colors like blush, mauve and antique cream it’s almost irresistible! I can imagine myself and a few friends playing dress up in a dusty attic in these pretties….
The almost moth-eaten look of this Chai Latte dress (also from ModCloth) is delicious:

I’m tempted to dig around my stash for yards and yards of lace trim and create a little vintage-inspired layer cake top or dress of my own. Just another thing to add to the ever-lasting To Do list!
