Black Lace

When I saw the inspiration for this week’s SIA – the woodcut lace design by Isabella Parasole – I immediately thought about my lace tights. Once I had the lace element down, the rest of the outfit came together pretty quickly – black tights layered underneath and a dark gray dress to make the white lace really pop, just like in the print, and a silver brooch and cut-out heels to mimic the intricacy of the lace.

I wore this last week, for my last day at work before the break (I still have a few work outfits left to post), back when it was still cold enough to wear two pairs of tights. Now the sun is back, which is good, but I could never get used to the Lunar New Year without a bit of drizzling rain.

    Cool Salazar! You really captured the essence of embroidery design of the piece. I like it.

    Incidentally, I failed to mention how much I liked your niece’s artwork from Friday’s post (I don’t know how I missed it), with the roosters and all. I love all the colors she used. She does better than me as I can’t draw animals at all. I’m strictly a land/cityscape artist. 😉
