Prior to this spring/summer season, I was always into the basics -tees, tanks, leggings, and cardigans were the pieces I reached for while getting dressed. My main squeeze was makeup. While makeup is still very much dancing through my veins, my love for fashion has come back.
After high school, I kind of forgot about fashion as I was discovering the wonderful world of makeup. I'm sure I've mentioned it but since I was about 4-years-old up until the end of high school, I wanted to be a fashion designer. My mother was a designer and I studied, sketched, and dreamed of being a designer from a very young age. But I guess, reality struck and I decided that designing wasn't "stable enough" so I opted out of it when I graduated.
I realized that I kind of stopped shopping for clothing as much as before and focused all my time on makeup. Well, in the past few months, I've been on a wild clothes hauling spree and I can't stop! Lately, I've been so into lace, pastels, and floral prints. My wardrobe has suddenly become a mix of creams, nudes, and dusty roses. But, while I currently smitten with very girly patterns and shades, I still have a strong love for bold navy blues, blacks, and stripes. My fashion taste is very diverse.
Anyways, while boyfriend was looking at watches today, I somehow stumbled into Forever 21 again. It was like a dream come true -endless selection of LACE for some low, low prices. =) Too bad the other dresses I wanted were sold out in my size.
Here's dress #1 ($22.80). I'm loving this nude dress with its Peter Pan collar. At first glance, it looks very granny-ish but I'm glad I gave it a chance! The hem hits above the knee so it does show some leg which is nice since the collar's a tad high up. Boyfriend hates but at least I love it. I can't wait to wear it with a satin black bow and some black
heels flats -I rarely wear heels!
(I apologize I can't find either pieces online -I think they're new though so maybe they'll show up in the next few days.)
Here's #2 ($19.80). While the first dress had more of a whimsical feel, this dress wraps around the body clinging onto every curve.I wasn't sure about it at first but after trying it on, I really like it! And the print looks like it came straight out of a black and white film -it's very different.
I'm absolutely loving lace at the moment. Lace isn't only for your undergarments -it can look fabulous in your dresses, tops, and even blazers as well. =) What are your favorite spring/summer trends? Share!
