Fall Trend Alert. Give to Me Your Leather Take From Me My LACE

There is no escaping lace this fall and we couldn’t be happier. Dark or metallic lace with embellishments like leather, crystals and feathers makes us swoon. Judging by the Fall ’08 ready-to-wear shows (see below) lace is clearly a must-have.

Don’t be afraid to add lace stockings and open-toed pumps (please avoid lace leggings though). Unlike the old days, there is nothing prim and proper about lace today!
