Lace skirts at J Crew: Sophisticated Elegance
Always be gracious for your blessings! I am learning to be grateful everyday.
Day 17 involves Lace. The way Chamele describes these lace skirts, I am intrigued. I have never been the one to like lace, but it is elegant and sophisticated. Check it out!
I am always on a quest to find certain key pieces. Last year, I wanted a knee length lace mini skirt. I was hoping to find one in an elegant black lace to replace a skirt that I had in college. Instead I found a cream lace mini skirt on sale at a favorite spot; but it was entirely too slim throughout the hips and I could not return it. One happy sister-in-law found herself with some new digs. This year, lace has made its into every facet of clothing including shorts. Lace is no longer reserved for tablecloths and weddings (although my mother might disagree.)
While combing through my September and October issues, I saw a cute spin on a the lace trend. A lace skirt with a button-down shirt and belted sleeveless sweater vest. The sweater vest covered a fair portion of the skirt, toning down dressier element of the look and making the look entirely purposeful for a business affair. And so my search began again. I just happened to be in JCrew. Honestly, I just happened to be there by someone suggestion, and I found the cutest gray lace mini… and then I saw the green one. I have no clue which I would prefer. They are both adorable. The Severn Lace Mini is $138.00 at JCrew. I am looking forward to wearing one with a button down and one of those mixed metal necklaces also on my wishlist.
