How to Wear a Lace Dress (Part 2 of 2)

by Kate Franco on April 3, 2011 · 17 comments

A long time ago I blogged about how to wear a lace dress. The lace trend was just kind of coming around, and I never ended up finding one that suited my sense of style AND was in my price range. Until Now {ah, the beauty of mass market}.

Last week in Little Lessons I blogged my need for more lace. And today, I bring you the new frontier:

It’s actually a peachy pink kind of color, not cream, and I wore it to a bridal shower this evening. Please note that without the belt this dress looks like a curtain. 0 Shape. 0. The wedges were oh-so-comfortable and matchy-matchy with the belt, but I wasn’t sure about wearing wedges to a fancy restaurant, so I tried these on for size, too:

And…drumroll please. It’s Maya’s onscreen debut! Her expression is priceless, don’t you think?

Which do you like better? How would you have worn it?

Happy Monday!

Love this! immediately started trying to think if I could make a dress from the lace I’ve spread on my apartment floor. I vote wedges!

Oh, LOVE it!! I like either shoe – the pumps play up the delicacy of the lace, while the wedges give them a little more edge.

(Maya is adorable, too!)

This is such a cute dress! I love the whole lace trend right now, it’s so pretty and classic. Your lining looks good too, it’s a nice touch.

I’m a pumps girl, so that gets my vote, but the wedges look great too!


Lila April 5, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I’m going to have to throw my vote in for the pumps. Classic, clean lines. You look fab.

Big fan of the lace dress…Suuuuuper cute! (And although it seems general consensus is wedges, I think I’m going to have to go with pumps!)

I need a belt like this – you seem to wear one like this often. Any suggestions where to purchase one?
