On My Inspiration Board: The Allure of Lace

Whether your wear it, decorate with it, or filter sunlight with it, lace is one of those fabrics that can deliver a mood or emotion more than any other.  It is also one of the only fabrics that can be worn casual with jeans, or delicately drapped over the most elegant of wedding gowns.  Lace says dainty, elegant, and luxurious.  Lace can soften the look of a room, add warmth to one’s complexion, and can become a cherished heirloom that is passed from generation to generation.

Originally handmade, lace was a fabric which very few could afford until machine made laces became more common.  While it never fully went out of style, lace gowns fluctuated in popularity, with the most full lace ensembles peaking at the turn of the 20th century.

From collars to cuffs, gloves to petticoats, and veils to full gowns, lace adds it’s own beauty to anything or anyone.  So in honor of May and all things elegant and beautiful, enjoy this selection of lace gowns.
