“it is difficult to see why lace should be so expensive; it is mostly holes.” // m.w. little
lace has forever left me a bit nonplussed.
on the one hand, i think it to be gorgeous in all its webby intricacy yet, on the other, i can’t shake it’s leaning toward either the eternally bridal (read: laughably virginal), or of the siren, (usually italian in heritage, and sophia loren in buxom gorgeousness).
the first and only time i ever wore lace, it was a cream, more than it was white, wedding dress, (because who was i kidding?) and i don’t think i’ve felt the urge to don lace either before or since. that is, of course, until lately.
of course, it’s so like me to finally come around so much later than most everyone else. it’s as if i won’t allow myself to like something wildly popular until its become pretty much commonplace.
lace has been around since before the 16th century, you would’ve thought i would’ve cottoned on to its charms an age ago.
