Romeo & Juliet dress (I’ve shopped a few similar options for you: floral lace, cap sleeve, red, sky blue), Ivanka Trump heels (of course I love this Valentino pair, and here’s an affordable option), Harrods bag (which I wore as a cross-body on St. Patrick’s Day, similar here), Heidi Daus earrings (close to this pair. Also love flowers and angel fish!), Vintage gold rings (similar to the little lightning here, and this signet ring)
It has been a cold spring so I was excited for a warmer day to finally pull out this Romeo & Juliet lace dress. I got this sweet dress over the cooler months. While I could have worn it over something else (the lace pattern would pop over a blouse), I wanted to wait until I could wear it on its own. The sheer lace is intricate and a complement to the cut outs, which are a great way to subtly add a little visual interest.
I have an ongoing love for lace. The material is so romantic and, I think, makes you dream a little. Lace is also versatile. It can make just as much sense for brunch or strolling as it does for evening with a change of accessories. What today we consider lace is said to have originated in the early sixteenth century. Perhaps that inspires the dreamy feel…I can picture ladies wearing lace as they walk along cobblestone streets or through sun-kissed meadows.
What really made this look though are my Heidi Daus earrings. Her designs are so creative. They make a statement with splashes of color and unexpected shapes. Heidi’s pieces are inspired by her love of fine art and nature. She has sparkled her signature Swarovski crystals on everything from radishes to beetles (I have her scarab beetle cuff, which I wore here, and it is amazing).
