Champagne Lace

Photobucket
You may remember the purchase of this vintage dress I bought recently. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful intricate lace detail along the collar bone and sleeves. This is a colour I don't often buy for occasions in fear it will be ruined on a night out, I can only keep my fingers crossed. I decided to maintain the champagne hue throughout with nude platform shoes, pearl cluster ring and my latest Tabio addition, these beautiful beige flower anklet tights.

  1. That dress is lovely. I thought the tights pattern was a temporary tattoo at first.
