Blackened Lace

"There are no mistakes in lace,
just misdirected threads that present a new challenge."
quoted by Barbara Bulgarelli on arachne
I've been meaning to post this outfit for a while now but kept forgetting to snap pictures of it. This dress is from the Rodarte for Target collection and I wore it Christmas Eve and loved it. It's so comfortable but yet has an elegant touch to it. I wore it with a different black shirt at the time (but couldn't find it when I took pictures) it was lower in the neck which let the black lace on the dress show through.I think next time I wear this I'll fix the belt so it doesn't keep sliding down.I love lace, it reminds me of special times I used to have with my grandmother and it makes you feel a little girly. I remember growing up my mom would put me in these lace dresses and I would cry because I thought it was so ugly. Now I look back and wonder to myself what was wrong with me. I would now kill for dresses I used to have to wear back then. Funny how our styles change over the years. Hope you like the pictures! Click below for more :)

  2. I think this is the first rodarte for target dress that doesnt look completely cheap. (... actually the leopard wasnt too bad either... but any time they attempted "chiffon"? ew.)

    Either way, this is absolutely gorgeous. both the cut and pattern are timeless. good find.

  3. That is the first item from the collection that i can truly say I love and would wear. Im not getting the whole rodart hype, maybe because im in the uk and they have yet to make it over here. But ive not really loved anything, until this dress! It looks stunning on you!!
