Lace In translation

"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin." 
Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939

Lace is a very understated material when it comes to wedding dresses and I am not sure why, it is timeless, classy, and beautiful! I remember waking up at 3 am on April 29, 2011 in anticipation of the royal wedding, and when Catherine Middleton stepped out in the now famous Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress I just about screamed! She looked AMAZING!!

I was so wanting her to look like the way she always did. Sophisticated, yet regal, and that she did! Usually when I watch "Say yes to the Dress" I always hear "NO LACE!" And the reaction from most ladies I speak to when I say one day when I get married I want a lace dress, I get this look of "what in the world," and they usually say something to the sort of "oh...really?" But I have one friend who is right with me when it comes to this subject, Morgan. She also loves lace and wants a lace wedding dress. Finally someone gets what I've been saying!


Now tell me these dresses don't make your heart jump with excitement! The couple of pictures above (which are of the same dress) is the one that Morgan is in love with, and I have to say I don't blame her. This dress is a part of the Valentino Metis 2008 collection, she also showed me this next one, which I have to say is the one I love the most I do believe!

Just one more! This is the grand finale!!

I hope you all have a great Thursday!!
