I adore your after the wedding dress!! I have a few items that I keep out just to look at them too. I really like lace as well which is funny because when I was younger my parents house was decorated with tons and tons of lace, Mom being very victorian and all. I used to tease that the house had thrown up lace, lol! Oh, and... the little bit of an armoire peeking out is just gorgeous too!! Blessings... Polly
Does this mean the black lace dress I kept all these years is back in again? I got rid of most of my clothes as we no longer go out but I did keep this one dress as I did not have the heart to get rid of it. I like the idea of hanging it on my armoire for decoration after seeing your dresses. I may do that since black is an accent color in my bedroom anyway. ~~ Heidi ~~
Oh, Sophie, I love your dresses! I want some! I think dresses are just the most feminine romantic things to wear, and with lace it gets even better.I hope you will take a picture of yourself modeling your new dress when it comes!PS. Cute little Spider is looking so cozy wrapped up in the pink blanket. Not at all like that monster I saw in the frying pan! LOL!
I used to be goth many years ago and had my poor mother making various lace dresses! I kept a skirt which was amazing, deep rich purple (cadburys purple) silk with black lace over the top. I will never wear it again I'm sure but I would love to look like those fashion pics!
Your black dresses are beautiful and timeless! I love fashion that never really goes away and you can always find lace here and there. Love the look of tights with a shorter dress - very chic! There's a lot of this now in the states. Vera Wang has come out with a more affordable line with some cute frilly things..love it! Do take a photo of you when you wear your dress on Friday. I do hope that you get it on time!! Give Mr. Spider hugs from us!!!! xo, Becky and Doogs
Very pretty Sophie,Have you seen the book 'Living with lace' by Bo Niles? It is a feast for the lace lover, mostly using it in the home though. I'm sure you would enjoy it but oops, I mustn't encourage you to spend your holiday money!!!!!Take care,Sandi x
Oh, I love the dresses. I'm a big fan of very feminine clothing, too. It just looks so sweet, yet elegant, at the same time. I love lace!
Sophie oh my goodness!!! I just love every lace piece!!! I have a thing for dresses and I just love lace too, especially the styles you have shared with us. The dress you had made for your wedding, wow! I love your black and white dresses ~ i have a skirt that is very similar that I think would be right up your alley. BUT that one you bought online, oh my it is divine!!! Please could you tell me where you bought it??? Tooooooooo gorgeous!!!
those dresses look fantastic. my sister in law hangs her fav pieces of clothing around the house so she can see them at all times (although it does drive my very conventional brother insane) hope it arrives in time for the party
I just love all the lace. great collection.
Take these dresses and wear them in FLORENCE!! Then if you did start to feel guilty about spending the money set aside for your trip you won't feel so bad when you wear the dresses there.Love,Julie
They'are all beautiful, Sophie! I'm with you, I love all things lace. When my children were little, I was really into sewing with vintage lace. Still have quite a collection of it, and plan to use it "someday!"Jacki
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Love them all, particularly your new party dress and your never worn wedding dress! Love this kind of dress, Jean Seberg in Breathless was amazingly beautiful.Kim x
What a treat for this vintage fashion lover!! What a stash of gorgeous lace dresses! I love lace as well, whether or not it is in or out of style, I mix and match it with all kinds of textures~~it's so feminine and pretty! How can you ever decide what to wear??? Thanks for the info about the boutique you featured~~maybe you can collect some royalties for advertising for them???? You could replenish the Florence Fund! lol!Michelle
I love all the lace! You have great taste! Pretty!!Michelle
I love black lace. I think that new dress will look smashing on you. (I'm usning English expressions again)I hope you get it in time for the party.Thanks for your fashion tips.Rosemary
oh sophie you find the most gorgeous clothes, I love vintage clothes but find them very hard to find, I am loving the new dress pretell where is it from it gorgeousKarax
Sophie, The Lace is Just Beautiful. I used to dress my daughter in lace when she was little, but unfortunatelly she is a Tomboy now an will only wear a dress on a special occasion.I have something for you at my blog :)Angie
You will be styling in Florence if you throw those in your suitcase. Maybe you can pick up a pair of Italian shoes that would be perfect.Ciao~
There is nothing wrong with looking feminine and lace is so romantic. You have a stunning collection Sophie.Marie x
Oh, Sophie, how pretty! I'm sure you will look beautiful in it! I love the idea of having a vintage dress hanging in the bedroom, too. So romantic!xoxo,Mary
I can totally see you wearing these! They are gorgeous and funky at the same time. I am such a classic/preppy type dresser I could never wear those, but WISH I could!Penny
Oh Sophie! How lovely and romantic!! I don't own anything that even resembles that!! Blessings,Robin
I LOVE all of your lace dresses! And your armoir is soo pretty too! Is that a LV train case I see on top of your armoir?! I love train cases! The new dress you ordered is just perfection, seriously! I completely understand your snatching it up with your vacation money! I would have done the same! Cece
Hi Sophie, oh my, we LOVE VINTAGE LACE DRESSES!!! Yours are all so beautiful, what a great idea wearing a lacey top and jeans! Oh and pink and black lace is our absolute favourite!! How gorgeous you would have looked in that!Take care Sophie xo PS Cuddles to Spider!
oooh!!! I love lace too!! gorgeous pics!!! pretty dresses! xo Britt
Right that's it ! my antique velvet and lace dress stays right here ! small problem of it being slightly too tight .......
Hi Sophie, forgot to say we added a song you have on your Playlist, it's "Sleep Walk", we love it!!! It's the theme song to our all-time favourite radio program here in Australia every Saturday morning and we didn't know what it was called, until we heard it on your blog!!And we were SO happy we found it! Hope you don't mind :) Jenn and Jacqui xo
I love the lace as well. However, I have long passed the figure to make it appealing. I do however like the idea of using it for decoration. The pieces you have are beautiful! Jeans and lace top would be my type of outfit!
I love lace and vintage, too, and I love your collection! ~ Thank you for showing it to us!Can't wait to see the photos from your Florence trip! I hope you have a blast!
Black is always timeless. Beautiful creations Sophie.
I'm all about lace!!! To bashful to wear black though...Your collection is gorgeous.
Love the look of vintage that you have in all your dresses. I have to lose a few pounds to look good in the vintage look but I am working on that. It is so neat that your after the wedding dress can we worn again and again...............Beautiful dresses.
Those dresses are just beautiful! I should have kept a lace dress I had in the 80's, it would be perfect now!
Very pretty, Sophie. Take one along for a special night in Florence!Pat
What lovely laces you have. I remember my first lace nighty, it was black with a pink underlay at the bodice...my Aunt gave it to me for my wedding night...always had the warmest feelings for her after that lol...
Ah, yes. Lace. What can be better?
Oh how pretty dear Sophie! I know you look amazing in the new one! What a magic night in Florence will be had!I bought a lace skirt last Spring and wore in in NYC and several times since. I always get compliments on it and just love the way it looks, hangs, moves...so feminine and, believe me, I need help in that department, klutz that I am!Hugs,Sue
Your lace dress is very pretty...I've always been of the mind that you should surround yourself with things you love as much as can be managed!Enjoy your day!
I love lace...but hardly ever wear it. I wonder why that is? I'll have to think on that a bit. Thanks for your kindness to Joey and Karen. I appreciate it so much and I know they do to. You're such a nice person, Sophie, and I'm so glad we've gotten to know one another! I wouldn't trade you for anything!
I love all your dresses but the black one with the pink rose is stunning! Hanging them up so you can see them everyday is a great idea. I've always loved that look. ~ Lynda ♥
All these dresses are gorgeous, Sophie, particularly the one you had made to change into for your wedding. I have some vintage lace, but not clothes. What a wonderful thing for you to collect! Thanks for sharing these delicious photos. Enjoy your new dress.
What a fab collection, so very pretty!
Beautiful post...love all the lace and great ideas. Thanks for sharing!blessings, kari and kijsa
Hi Sophie,THanks for the info on the dress! I do have a few friends in London who would be able to get it. I do know Miss Selfridge, I went there a few times when I visited London in 1995. Also worked in fashion so my boss used to make many trips to Europe and the US and bring back lots of samples from there to be 'inspired' by (read: copy)!! I would love to get it but didn't realise it's woolly and we're coming up to Summer, wish they made it in cotton or polyester or rayon.... bummer!!! It's soooooo the kind of dress I would wear, so glad you are getting it. Be sure to show us when it arrives!
I love all those pieces, especially your after wedding dress. I wish I could wear those kind of things, being a former bodybuilder my arms are just TOO BIG! :(I bet you look beautiful in them!*muah*Michelle
Sophie, come on over for a little visit, I have a well-deserved award for you. Even if I had a shorter list, I'd want you on it, especially after making me laugh over the whole swing incident! :-) Melissa
They are all so pretty. I don't think I have any lace but now that I think of it, this gives me a good reason to go shopping. I think these dresses will be very pretty wherever you wear them.
Can't get enough of lace myself, I'm sometimes mistaken for sheers or a table cloth. THAT BAD!Love your lace collection...keep it up:)Ta , Adla
Hi Sophie - thanks for dropping by - my week is much better now that the cloud has lifted in the office in fact we had quite a nice chat yesterday - Phew!!Must go it 6.40am and have to get baits done
What gorgeous dresses! Lace is just lovely - I have several boxes of old lace, collars etc - they're just gorgeous to look at.I still have some lace dresses lurking in my cupboard - I'll never fit in to them again but my daughter will!
I can so picture you in all of these dresses! They all scream Sophie! You will have to model them all!Karla
Those dresses are just gorgeous - especially the one you had for your wedding. They are all so pretty and feminine. Cathy X
I am loving those dresses, They are all so pretty. I have a vintage lace petticoat/skirt that I have saved to wear for my wedding (one day!)...There is definitly something magical about wearing genuine vintage linen and lace.Gorgeous!Jennifer x
Sophie, they are all sooo gorgeous! Just so you know, I enlarged the pictures to take in each detail:)I hope your new lovely has arrived or will arrive soon.Rhonda
I loved your wedding photo too! Cute blog, I will be back!Meredith
I love those lace pieces! What beautiful dresses to wear and decorate with! That is the nice thing about them. If they are not in style you can throw it over a trunk or hang it on a pretty hanger and it is still chic and feminine!
oh my that's a pretty impressive collection! and it's only a quarter of what you owned. luckily you've included some models pic to emphasize what you mean, i can see it's very 'trendy' once you know how to match correctly. TQ 4 sharing.
Sophie, love your lace dresses. I can see why you collect them. They are so beautiful. The dress you just bought is adorable! You must take a picture of you in it and then show us. We'd all love it!alliewww.mycozyhome.typepad.com
I love all the lace dresses! I have always loved lace too and have lots of lace tops. I don't think I own a dress though, maybe I'll get one this year. You have a very cute blog! I will be checking back with you. Come by and visit mine if you'd like! :0) Sharon
