Lace, lace & more lace!

Hi everyone!  This week I wanted to share with you the hot Spring/Summer trend 'Doily Lace.'  Cut out floral patterns and small to large scale lace can be seen in shorts, tops, shirts, pants, jackets and skirts...pretty much everything! 
I've always been attracted to garments made in lace and have collected many pieces including vintage ones over the years. I find it adds a touch of elegance and femininity to an outfit. It is inspiring to see lace in all shades of colour, including the hot neon trend.
I have styled some lace inspired looks for you below. I thought I'd try something different this post and  reference and style items only from local and well known Melbourne boutiques and fashion stores. This way those of you who are not so comfortable purchasing online, you can go and try on the looks I've styled in person.  For my international followers, don't worry I have referenced the online shop for you as well. Happy Shopping!  












Have a great week!
