If you put anything lace in front of me, odds are that I’ll try to reach out and snatch it up or whip out my wallet and ask you how much it costs. I adore lace, particularly when it’s used in a more thoughtful, modern way (no lace curtains here, please). I always do double-takes at lace shells and dresses in stores. In fact, I’ve been hunting for the perfect lace dress for about a year now, so if you have any suggestions, please send them my way. Until then, I’ll keep hunting!
A lace pencil skirt caught my eye this week when I was perusing a nearby Banana Republic. Banana Republic is, without a doubt, one of my favorite stores. I often walk out with several stand-out pieces, and even when I go in telling myself that I don’t need anything, I usually tend to walk out with a least a basic tee or sweater! As always, when I was walking through the store I caught a glimpse of lace out of the corner of my eye and whipped around fast enough to nearly give myself whiplash. The object of my attention? This gorgeous work piece:
I could go on and on about this gorgeous lace pencil skirt. The shape is, of course, ultra-flattering on a variety of body types. The lace gives a wonderfully feminine texture to any outfit. And the color? Oh, the color! It’s almost a dove grey, which is a sophisticated neutral and would pair beautifully with pinks, purples, red, and black. Banana Republic also offers the skirt in black, but I think the intricate nature of the lace is lost with such a dark color.
Unfortunately, I didn’t buy this beauty, but you can bet it’s on my list for work clothes I’d love to have! Have you ever bought a lace skirt?
