Of Lace and Tulle and Other Things

In the immortal words of Nigel from the Devil Wears Prada: "Well, you know me. Give me a full ballerina skirt and a hint of saloon and I'm on board." 

I remember being a teen and laughing so hard over that. Because...its intention was a bit facetious, a not-so-subtle jab at the fashion powers that be...but, also, so true, Nigel, so true.

My style pinterest board has long been a breeding ground for all levels of fashion inspiration -- from street style to utterly untenable couture. Why not? Who's to say backstage Valentino can't inspire your next pajama purchase? Plus, I like ridiculousness. Like, if I had the chance to wear haute couture to a party, or to fetch the mail, I. Would. Do. It.

And while there's something satisfying about these ultra-fem pieces rubbing elbows (lace-and-jewel-encrusted) with mom jeans and ballet flats on my feed -- I wanted a separate space. A place strictly meant for explosions of lace and tulle, of high necks and ruffled hems. Thus, the birth of my newest obsession, which yes, is a pinterest board. I like to think Nigel would be proud.

See board here.
