What is it about lace that makes me want to swoon? I just think it is the detailing, the vintage or antique nature of the material, and the femininity of it, at least for me.
To quote Wikopedia,
Originally linen, silk, gold, or silver threads were used. Now lace is often made with cotton thread, although linen and silk threads are still available. Manufactured lace may be made of synthetic fiber. A few modern artists make lace with a fine copper or silver wire instead of thread. A totally different scale are the architectural lace fences by Dutch designers.”
Perhaps it is the origin of lace that made it desirable to wear. Silk, gold or silver thread was for a certain class in the past, a certain status could afford the material.
I love learning the history of things, but I do believe some material with its delicate nature, its femininity is what attracts me to it. So, as you see, I decided to mix lace today with this pencil skirt with leather detailing, and one of my favorite fall-winter colors: oxblood. The color tends to “pop” in between the skirt and collar area, making it look rich against the black.
Do you love lace? If so, what do you often find yourself wearing with it? Why were you drawn to it?
Have a wonderful weekend!
