A Bit of Lace for Dessert

Ever the one to be entirely too caught up with runway trends, I picked up this beautiful lace blouse as soon as I laid eyes on it. When buttoned all the way up it has a very strong editorial look. It's rather dark and romantic. I haven't quite found the perfect bottom half to this outfit yet. After seeing Miuccia Prada's lace swathed collection, my brain demands a lacy skirt. At the moment I'm considering wearing it with a slim floaty long grey skirt and black boots. In the meantime I'll keep my eyes open for a skirt to match.


Skirt: Seduction (via the Salvation Army)

Did the latest Prada collection remind anyone else of a very decadent desert? I'm thinking of chocolate and butterscotch. I've always been quite impressed with Prada's attention to detail and choice of fabrics. The mumsy-fit of the shirts probably won't do much for me (I prefer the shape of my own), but the lace is gorgeous. I also appreciate experiments with shoes. Give me an unusual shape of the heel any day. I hope more affordable versions of the winged-shoes on the runway pop up somewhere.

I absolutely love that top your wearing, I think it would look good with the grey skirt you were saying about but i would think it would look better with heels instead but that's just me!

I can definitely see black lace over a cream slip.

I need some advice! I bought a black lace top just like yours but mine is halter. Now I don't know what to wear underneath it. A strapless black bra looks skanky while a strapless nude bra looks, well, nude! Help!
