Cream Lace Hunting

White lace dress

When you give up thinking about it, that’s precisely when you find it.

Yep – it’s another one of those…

Dress: Free People.  Try Topshop’s lace dress or Revolve has a lot of badass lace dresses. Boots: Vintage and DIY hacked to ankle.  Try these Fryes and wear them in the rain to break them in. Bag: Gucci. Try Mango’s same retro vibe bag, Ralph Lauren (if into fringe), the Mansur Gavriel saddle bag in my shop or  APC. Shades: Forever21.

I saw this dress at Beacons a couple of weeks ago and knew before checking the label that it was Free People.  I had been quietly eyeing it for months, fondling it in the shops. It comes in black too and I ummed and ahhhh’d in my head on which colour I would get if I was to hypothetically buy it.

Fast forward a few months and there it is:  Hanging in the colour categorized white/cream dresses section while in Williamsburg Brooklyn.  *Insert choir singing*  I instantly Instagrammed.  Now I just need the same thing to happen with the Rodarte carpet boots.

Is this a common fashion karma? When you stop looking  you randomly find it?

    Love this dress! And yes, I think so, usually when I stop hunting for something, it magically appears in my life! Such a strange phenomenon, but I happily welcome any chance to get my hands on something I thought I missed out on!

      …and to think I almost sold them

    Beautiful dress. You look great in everything. I broke in my frye harness boots cutting the grass and doing yard work in them, wore them camping and stomping around in the south jersey pinelands and marshes. It takes a while, but it works.

      Thank you but I really don’t! There’s loads I don’t wear! Brilliant idea on the Frye’s they look 10 x better when really worn in don’t they?

      Thank you Malinda! hoping I’ll feel the same way when Spring rolls around next year!
