The Little Lace Dress

Hello Lover!

‘Love Miranda. Love Lace. Love Lover.’

You may recall I posted about the Lover, Spring / Summer 2011 collection here – with its red-hot lace and delicately, whimsical allure. It was one of my favourites! So you should have seen my excitement, when one of my top models – Miranda Kerr – stepped out in not one, but two of the most iconic little lace dresses from the collection! Love Miranda. Love Lace. Love Lover.

The LLD
(little lace dress)

The little lace dress is a style statement. Feminine, elegant and sophisticatedly sexy; it can take you from day (wear with sweet ballet flats) to evening glamour in an instant (simply add polished heels and go).

From Erdem to Lover, Stella McCartney and Marchesa, amongst others – lace has undoubtedly made a return to the catwalk in recent seasons. Fresh, refined and sweet – the new use of lace is all about polished beauty. Iconic white or black lace dresses are très chic; while those in strong statement hues, such as blood red, are irresistibly charming.
