Everybody Everywear 2.0: Lace

I must confess, I was a little disappointed when I found out that the next Everybody Everywear challenge was going to be lace. I voted for pleated skirt! I could even do shorts. But lace? I don’t wear lace. Not that I have anything against lace, it’s just a little fussy for my style. I don’t even think I have anything with lace on it… but then I remembered my vintage lace collar. And I was saved.


So yeah, I still don’t wear lace, but I can work with something like this, or maybe a crocheted lace trim. Somehow those seem less fussy to me.

Shirt: Forever21, remixed
Skirt: Banana Republic thrifted, remixed
Shoes: Madden Girl thrifted, remixed
Belt: thrifted via Buffalo Exchange
Lace collar: Lotusblossomvintage via Etsy
Brooch: vintage via Collectible Glitz (a cameo brooch would be perfect, but this is Victorian enough as it is.)

  1. Your lace collar is so cool. I thought you were wearing a lace trimmed top at first. Also loving the brooch (even without the cameo).

    What a GREAT way to try something new! I have to admit, I was sad about the outcome, too! I wanted colored pants…If I could have rigged it, I would ;)
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

  5. I like every piece of this outfit. The shades of blue are great together, the shoes are fun, and the collar is divine. It’s all wonderful together.

    The lace collar is very sweet. That’s what I would’ve done for this week’s Everybody Everywear too.

  10. I voted for the crazy pants…I have some really insane pants by Laura Ashley that I’m waiting to bust out.

    I love your lace collar! I have one from my grandma that I love.

  11. Sarah says:

    That collar is darling. I know what you mean about lace, though. I only have a few pieces and they are super functional ones because I feel like lace can very easily become fussy and old ladyish.

  12. Valerie Fox says:

    You look lovely! I had the same problem finding some lace in my closet! My shirt only had a tiny bit of lace, but I guess it worked and I stuck in a pleated skirt anyway!

    Thanks for sharing!
