VICTORIAN LACE

Tuesday, May 24, 2016


 I'd like to consider my style some what edgy - so lace is not a word that enters my vocabulary often, or my wardrobe, ever, for that matter. So when I took a little look over the new Gestuz lookbook a few months back and couldn't help but gravitate towards this woven lace insert blouse! Once ordered I was seriously looking forward to styling up a somewhat beautiful but challenging item. 

Initially black is always a hands down, go-to for me. Black goes without saying, It's like I'm programmed to reach for it when I'm feeling uneasy. So I could of easily slipped on black straight leg jean and a pair of lace up glads and called it a day but that would be pretty boring right? (Not to mention typical of me.) Instead I opted for my DIY Weekday kick flare jeans which are sadly sold out in the blue wash, but fear not the black is still available here. 

I think adding layers of jewellery and giving a traditonal look a hint of personality is the key to nailing a classic item of clothing like a lace blouse. You all know by now Missoma are my aboslute go-to for jewellery! This dagger necklace, vermeil horn hoops and double chain dagger bracelet are a couple of newbies to add to my ever growing collection of golds. What do you think?

Of course by now I don't think there's any need to re-introduce these knotted lace up sandals but if you are fairly new to A Fashion Fix I'd suggest heading to Mango immediatly for an instant Chloe fix!
