Oh lace! I was born with the affinity for it. From the pink lace princess dress I worn every holiday at my early age to the black lace shift dress I wear now, Lace never leaves my life.

I love lace not only because that it’s elegant and aristocratic, ancient but modern, but also because it is delicate and strong at the same time, just like women, ourselves. We may be fragile sometime but our hearts need to stay strong.

Since lace itself is an ultra feminine garment (yes, it is no long just used for detailing), I especially love pairing it with tough pieces like a leather or denim jacket and structured accessories, like masculine leather bag or a pair of gladiator sandals.

Below are my ways to pair this stunning lace shift dress, hope can give you some inspiration:
