Life is good, Lace is better

Growing up, I've always viewed lace as something very feminine and elegant,
something fit for only special occasions.
Hence, over the years, I tend to shy away from lace.


So after a thorough search of my entire wardrobe,
I found only one top that moderately looks like it's made of lacy material.
Decided to dress it up with a ribbon brooch
that belongs to my mother,
a beige cincher which was such a bargain,

and a headband that I wore as a necklace instead
(a last minute purchase in accessorize, london airport).



Here's a collage of all things lace I made

to further inspire myself to wear more lace and adding them into my wardrobe!
Hope you will like it too:)




Also not forgetting, the lovely Tink from Tink in the Closet has recently tagged me with this sweet award.
She has a fabulous blog and her outfits are always so amazing, so do hop over and have a look for yourself!


Once you receive this award,
you must give it to ten other bloggers and write ten facts about yourself.

Okay, here are 10 useless facts about myself:)

1. When I was a baby, I practically had no hair! My mom used to hide the fact by putting bon
nets and hats on my wee head until I was about 2, I think.

2. I love Christmas...the tree, the pressies, the lights, everything is so pretty and I look forward to celebrating Christmas every year:)

3. I love the idea of fine dining. There's just something so romantic and deliciously wonderful being in that ambience and being pampered, surrounded with champagne glasses, candles, etc.

4. I love to write bits of poetry and stuff when I feel inspired. I also started writing letters to my future husband when I was 18. It will be pretty neat to be able to give the letters to him on my weddin
g day.

5. My favourite colour is pink. All sorts of pink. Don't judge me:P


6. I have a thing for cute babies/children. I just love playing with them;)

7. I'm a crybaby. A touching movie/story/book can release a rush of tears real easily.

8. I just love to see how people around the world put their outfits together. Especially the art of layering in fall/winter, it just amazes me. I wish we have colder weather here so that I could try it out;)


9. I heart Sashimi. Yes, give me a plate of fresh raw salmon and I'll be as happy as a bird.


10. I have a love-hate relationship with horror movies. I am always curious to see how the movie goes and yet always end up getting so freaked out by it. Recent ones were the Orphanage and Shutter*cringes*


And now I tag asian cajuns, cinnamon eve, dragonfly in yantar, fashion cappuccino,
flashes of style, maverick malone, me, mo & myself, qin at the disco,
un petit lapin, and with love...


xx Have a great day, everyone!!xx

I love lace, I just don't know how to wear it, but I think you've just inspired me. I'm the same with horror movies. I absolutely love them, but end up making myself paranoid.

Ooo thank you so much for tagging us, Sher! We absolutely adore your blog!
I can totally understand the love/hate horror movie thing- I do that too! Though I'm even more of a baby and sleep with the lights on if I get really scared.

I love how you paired your lace with such chic lines! You've convinced me that I need to add more lace to my wardrobe!

Hope you have a lovely, lovely weekend!
xoxo,
Lar (AsianCajuns)
