eyelet lace


For me, eyelet lace (A.K.A. broderie anglaise) is synonymous with breezy summer days. It has this irresistibly pretty, delicate allure, and a quick look into my closet would reveal that I am hooked on the stuff. Like the girl, above, I often temper its frothiness/preciousness with tougher pieces, such as denim and leather. But while warmer temperatures are a ways away, it doesn't hurt to start scouting the newest lacy lovelies, including this absurdly cute dress from Club Monaco (ideal over a bathing suit or teamed with lived-in jean shorts), this French Connection tunic perfection (also beach-ready), and this cocktail-worthy Chloe stunner.

I love eyelet lace. It always seems to be in style, especially with denim, and sometimes even plaid. That Chloe dress is such a great find! It's gorgeous.

any idea where the dress is from in the pic?

The dress is by Isabel Marant--of course (a few seasons ago).
