Lace holds a special place in my heart. It’s sensual yet powerful. My love for this delicate fabric began with my overflowing vintage collection as a teen. I would search far and wide for Victorian-inspired lace…all of which would be layered under dresses, or simply on it’s own. Ruffled sleeves and puffy shoulders. Cue “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and we’re golden. Magda Butrym‘s twist on a Victorian jacket feels modern and wearable for the everyday. I gave it a little evening spin with a lace bodysuit and pretty pleats to kick off fashion week. I’ll be wearing lingerie as outerwear for as long as I can before winter comes!
