Lovely Lace Frocks

There is something so sublimely feminine about a lace dress IMO. We all know how much I love to sparkle…especially around the holidays, but I think it’s time I give another look a try for those dress up events I have on the horizon. Enter the lace frock. Whether I choose a more traditional look or decide to go an edgier route, as I’m inclined to do right now, there are a multitude of beautiful options out there in the shoposphere.

So, are lace dresses something y’all are planning on rockin’ this holiday season? Or is this a “trend” you’re leaving by the wayside?

    Beautiful dresses. I love when lace is edgy instead of romantic.

    All of my Christmas parties are super casual this year but if I were dressing up any of these would be perfect. xo

    I think a black lace dress would be pretty at a wedding if it was dressed up with a satin body. Just thinking.

    So pretty! Last night I was trying to buy a white lace dress to bring to Florida next week but it had to shipped from England and I doubt it would be here in time…Plus it was so expensive I just could not justify spending that much especially at this time of the year…soooooo IF you happen to see a short white lace dress thats both sweet and sexy and not too weddingy Please let me know!! As if you are not busy enough 🙂

    You know, that Rachel Roy dress is something that is totally different from what I usually go for, but for some reason I’m drawn to it. It’s so gorgeous! And I kinda love that it has sleeves!

    Lace isn’t a practical winter fabric, but I’m with you- I’ve been craving it all season. I acquired quite the collection but I must wait for warmer weather to enjoy.

    Great post! I still personally adore sparkle (hence the name of my blog and all,) but would pair one of these lacy numbers with some sparkly necklaces and a big old cocktail ring!

    My favorite is the last one (Top Shop) – it reminds me a lot of the Alexander Wang naked dress that was so popular a year or so ago.

    Happy New Year!
