Ooh La La Lace

See by Chloé dress. Bow belt. Vintage costume pearl necklace. Vintage costume gold & pearl bangles. Ribbed tights. Loeffler Randall buckle boots.
I associate black lace with a Spanish mantilla, which in turn reminds me of Francisco Goya's The Black Duchess; he painted the Duchess of Alba (his rumored lover) several times, including The White Duchess (my favorite). I donned my own lacy bracelet-length sleeve frock with a velvet bow belt, a pearl/painted bead necklace & a wrist full of bangles. A pair of suede ankle boots gives my dress the kick to transcend from mere dinner party lounging to full-on Vespa scooting capabilities.
Chicisimo has been one of my favorite style-sharing sites for awhile; as the arbitraitor behind this real fashion mecca, Maria reviews outfits from girls worldwide & posts her favorite ones. I'm pleased to announce she just featured me in a video interview - check it out to be inspired by international street style jet-setters. Thanks so much for this opportunity Maria!

  1. I love this so much! That see by chloé dress is beautiful!
    P.S.
    If you meant the first one: according to the condenastestore, that is Ms. Redgrave. I must say that the fall ads were spectacular but I agree! these are amazing too!

  2. Hi, thanks for your comment on my last post on stockings and heels! hey, it is your right to disagree with me, and I will admit that you do look sexy the way you dress. However, my opinion, and this is purely my opinion, nice high heels just look sexier to me. I need people to disagree with me, otherwise my blog will be a mighty boring place. And maybe, just maybe you will try heels and stockings and change your mind...*smile*...specially if you realize how they shape your sexy legs into extremely sexy legs...

    Thank you very much for visiting and for leaving a thought with us, I always really appreciate my readers opinion, and I also really value their input.

    Thanks again and have a super day!

    Colin.
