Everybody. Everywear: Lace

It's about that time again folks - actually it is 100% that time, right now, this instant, no *abouts* about it - it's fashion flash mob, everybody, everywear time! Seriously though, I look forward to this wayyy too much. You'd think I was a loner who lived under a bridge and had nothing else to look forward to besides Tim Horton's throw-outs and EBEW, and maybe I am - you'll never know - but that's neither here nor there, I am excited!

Up until this spring I owned no lace. Not one piece. Not even a lace scrunchy... not that I own scrunchies, not since grade 8 anyway. Lace just wasn't my thing. I admired certain pieces on others, or on hangers, but could never find the right pieces to work into my own wardrobe. Then this season - spring 2011 - exploded on the scene and all of a sudden everywhere I looked there were pieces that were incorporating lace as though they were designing just for me. The pieces (here and here) I have chosen to this point have lightly incorporated lace, using it as an accent rather than the main course.

As soon as I walked into Aritzia during my recent trip to Ottawa I was drawn to this top. Although the top is striking it was out of the ordinary for me to go directly for something like this. The lace, the cut, the shape - none of it fit my usual M.O. but I gave it shot. And it won. It won me right over. Even as I bought it I was unsure how I to style i, however I knew this piece was worth the risk. To be honest I'm still not completely sure how to style it, but here is my first go. I cannot wait to wear it again.

  4. You have a reason to be excited! Such a fun outfit! Truly, I get so excited about EBEW, as well. It's so fun to have one item to focus on that I have to make work whether I like it or not - I'm like you and have only one piece of lace in my closet. After keeping my eye out for lace in the stores since this challenge, though, I can't wait to add more! Your shirt is one of the ones I'll be keeping my eye out for - totally out of my comfort box as far as style as well, but I can see how it would look fabulous on just about anyone. Adding you to my reader!

  10. I love your "lace take" on jeans and a white tee. It really jazzes it up. And those wedges are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  11. That top is fantastic! I love how it's a 'thicker' lace, not as dainty as some as the others. It gives it such a chic look. And paired with those wedges? I adore this whole look!!

  12. LOVE this look. So clean and classic. Makes me want to run out and buy a white lace top pronto.

  17. I love your lace top. I don't have much lace, I had to wear my lacy skirt that I hadn't even tried on before for this challenge.

  18. This is a very classic way of styling it. Simple jeans and amazing black wedges.

  30. OMG! I totally LOVE this lace shirt.

    And I used to like Aritzia (just window shopping, I've never actually bought anything before) but the last time we were there, they were blasting gangsta music that was filled with f bombs and the n word, and it was kind of off-putting that they would use that kind of music in an upscale shop that caters to rich white kids.

    But I may have to go now to hunt down that lace shirt. So pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my, that is a pretty ridiculous music choice for aritzia. They should be playing pheonix or something. I don't have one in my city so I attempt to check them out whenever I get a chance. Ive had a few hits, mostly misses - but maybe that's because my budget isn't expansive enough to justify most pieces.

  32. I love your causal look spiced up with lace and those gorgeous wedges - I really want them now!
    I got a pair of MRKT sandals recently and they are so insanely comfortable, i'm already itching to get another pair by them!

    Chic on the Cheap

  34. I think you nailed it! This outfit looks effortless (in a good way) - the perfect mix of casual and dressy. Love it!

  44. Ya know, I don't own much lace either. It's really hard for me to find lace items that don't look grandmotherly or trashy. I love the simplicity of yours though-those boyfriend jeans and wedges looks gorg together!

  46. Howdy just happened upon your website via Yahoo after I typed in, "Blogger: classic noise" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyways, I'm delighted I found it simply because your subject material is exactly
    what I'm looking for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the
    source. Appreciate it.
