Darling White Lace

There is something so soft and darling about white lace…until we get our hands on it.  Of course it is such a lady-like fabric and we are indeed ladies but we have our own opinions about lace.  Let’s talk about it.

The darling Mimi is still very lady-like, but the see through lace takes this dress to another level–kinda naughty and a lot of nice.  She paired it with a denim jacket and a braided suede heel.

Style Tip:  You can never go wrong in the Spring pairing white lace with a light wash denim.

Tieko styled a white lace duster over a pair of high waisted skinnies.  Now “darling” is Tieko about 20% of the time (or less) so of course she layered it with a linen blazer.

Style Tip:  While this is a real duster (only buttoning to the waist) you can make any button front dress a duster by buttoning it half way, from the waist up.

  1. I love this post! I’m all about Tiekos layers. The addition of denim is on time. Do you think you can make a pattern/ sew along or suggest one that’s already out there for Mimi’s dress?
