Daytime Dare— Feelin’ a Little Lacy

When most people hear the word lace, images of cheesy va-va-voom lingerie ala Fredericks of Hollywood or Great-granny’s turn of the century wedding gown come to mind. Well, tartelettes, Mimi is here to show you that the days of bad lace are over! For the past two or three years, the print has been making a quiet comeback, but for Fall 2009 its back in black, baby. And ready to play both nigh and day!Yep, you heard me- during the a.m. too!

I have compiled a collection of luscious lacy looks that’ll have you moving from coffee at your desk to cocktails at the bar like a seasoned stylista. So “lace” yourself for some majorly ToDieFor pieces!

These Lace Top Aviators are the perfect touch of femme for the kick-booty Rocker Chick *urbanoutfitters.com*

Pair Victoria’s Secret Sheer Lace Top with a pencil skirt for some sexy chic in the office

Free People’s Ruffle Fingerless Gloves are a funky modern take on Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” look.

I love these Pink Studio Katana flats for a more low-key lace look. And the navy hue provides unexpected chic.

For the Blair Waldorf in all of us, this Skinny Lace headband is simply adorable.

Anthropologie’s Skirted Lace-Print Cardigan is a versatile piece that would be just as stylish with tweed trousers on Mon as it would be with Converse on Sat.

Price ain’t nothin’ but a number when it comes to this showstopping &uber-expensive M Missoni dress. Lace has never looked more HighEnd*shopbop.com*

Ok, tartelettes, this is a Daytime Dare, not Scare so get ready to “lace” on some serious chic. And for those true daredevils of style, head on over H.E.R.E. to see how to really up the ante with lace’s naughtiest companion- leather!

Until next time, chicsters!

Casual Musts!

The tissue tank, buttery leather bag & shooties…As Rachel Zoe likes to say, “I DIE”. Everything about this laid-back look says, ‘I didn’t even try’. Well, I know you did and still think you look pretty cool. This ‘indie-loving scenester’ attire is made up of casual basics that are just so perfect together. However, they can also be paired with other goodies in your closet—taking on a whole new chic get-up. Even better, you can get most of the pieces on the cheap and invest in the shoes & bag (and they aren’t even outrageously priced)! And, hey, those camel shoes perfectly transition into fall with black tights. We just love multi-use!
