Lace up...


"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature;
 lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, 
and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin." 
-Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel's wise words continue to live on and be remembered. This quote perfectly sums up my love of lace and also thought it would be a 
great way to introduce to you my new friend from my closet. Or should I say old friend? 
I found this beautiful top stuffed down the back of my wardrobe. It is a rejected old top of my mothers that was
 kept in my childhood 'dress-up box' for me to play around in. 
My now older eyes immediately fell in love with its white lace details and adorable collar. 
It had a few stains but with a quick wash it was as good as new. 
I should start losing clothes in my closet more often, its so much fun rediscovering old clothes, its like I'm going shopping all over again.
