Lace Me Up, Baby

Fedora - Target
Dress - INC, Macy's (c. 2006)
Shoes - Guess, Ross (2011)

Yesterday's post was about laces.
Today's post is about lace.

Wow! What consistency she has!

So, anyway.  Where am I going in this outfit?


And for whom am I wearing this outfit?


Everybody, Everywear, that is!

Today's feature is lace.  I've worn this dress before here, so I tried to do something differently for this post.  I tried it as a tunic with jeggings and a "blouse" with shorts.  Sadly, neither of them were likable...so this is what you get! 

It's hard to tell, but I "fluffed" this dress over the belt quite significantly in order to create the "mini effect".  It's also difficult to tell that the entire dress is made of lace over a knit-ish-type of "underdress" (that's how I describe it), and it hits about mid-knee.  I was attempting to make it look more like day-wear, which is something that I would not associate with this dress at all.  I was glad to be able to participate today because, sadly, I really don't own anything else with lace.

Wait.  I do own some lace underwear...

(just kidding...I wouldn't scar(e) you guys like that!)

Have a great day and be sure to check out the other stylish ladies at Everybody, Everywear!

  1. Hey, there's no reason you can't own lace underwear. Just, you know...don't post blog photos of it or anything. Unless you want to take your blog in a whole different direction.

    Which I wouldn't advise. I kind of like being able to subscribe and I wouldn't be able to then. :)

    That dress is AH-MAZING on you! Absolutely incredible and I'm a little jealous. Actually a lot jealous. You look fantastic! I think you did a great job making it work for day time.

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  2. I love how you paired the fedora hat with the dress. It definitely made it work for the daytime look you were going for.

    And, I am really liking brown and black together!

  3. HELL-o! HOO-ah! This is hot, hot, hot! And I love the hat. Too cute. You look great, as usual. Would you be offended if I told you that I was describing you to my husband the other day as my black twin? I think I've loved everything you've ever worn and can totally picture myself wearing it, is all. Oh, and I think our senses of humor are the same, too :)

  4. I love it Kish.......those shoes are to die for!!

  5. I think you did a great job making this daytime. I really want a pair of shoes like that - brown, everyday-ish sandals that are still fabulous.

    It actually would have been pretty funny if you wore a totally different outfit and then announced you were wearing lace but it's not visible. Funny to us - probably creepy for you as the weirdos started showing up to your blog. Hee hee!


  6. I thought the dress was separates. Love how you were able to create that effect with belting and some fluffing. Great job!

  7. Love the black and brown together. And the way you restyled the dress.
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

  8. That dress is awesome! I love how you paired it with the belt and minied it up to make it work for day.

  9. That restyling idea is brilliant! Love the way it came out!

  10. I am in love with your hat! Work it girl! ;) I wish I could pull the look off as well as you do. If only I didn't have a freakishly large head...(big head, big brain, right?!?)

    Style in General

  11. you look adorable, I love the hat it is perfect. I am a sucker for hats so this won me over. I'm a new follower :)

  12. I absolutely love how you fluffed it up and belted it! And that hat was the perfect addition to the outfit. I think you totally made it work for day-wear! =)

  13. you look lstunning , the hat and lace really looks amazing on you xoxo

  14. (So...I posted a couple of responses previously, but I don't see them???)

    Melissa - I would never post "racy lacy" pics on this blog...that's why I'm starting another blog: "Me, Myself, & Style...After Dark"!!! LOL! (just kidding!)

    H/K & Linda - I love black and brown together also!

    Erin - Hey, we'll just tell everyone that we're each other's "sister from another mister"!

    Callandra - Thanks, girl! I love these shoes, and I love that I got them for a great price! ;)

    Jenn - You had me laughing out loud with that suggestion...now THAT would have been HILARIOUS!!!!

    CEE & Emmy & EOS & Tiffany & Maphi - Thank you for the compliments, ladies!

    Design Girl - Hey, I think I have a pretty big noggin myself. But if that means having a bigger brain (& more smarts), I'll take it! ;)

    Melissa - Thank you for visiting and following! I look forward to checking out your blog. =)

  15. you've inspired me to try hats again. i love it!

  16. I like how you used your accessories to transform the LBD to a chic, fun daytime look.
