Lots 'O Lace (See Jane Crazed)

It seems I've got lace on the brain.  Below are some of my latest purchases and it seems as if I have a one track mind these days:  Lace or Bust!


1. Forever 21 Lace Cardigan.  It was almost as if I was transported back to my sophomore year of college when everyone had the sequin, crochet boleros from BCBG.  I wanted one badly, but my mom said no.  This cardigan has a similar feel, so I still must be subconsciously pining for that bolero.  It's been five years, but good things come to those who wait....I guess. 
2. Free People Top.  Can't get more 90s than a tight, lacy, long-sleeve top.  To lessen the Six from Blossom feel of the top (you know she wore these under vests), I recently tucked it into a pencil skirt and wore it to work.
3. J Crew Lace Mini.  I just bought this skirt and while I won't be wearing it with a tie (I get it, J Crew--you like menswear), I definitely forsee myself wearing it to death.  I'm already envisioning how I plan to wear it this weekend.  A blazer and tights, perhaps?

Are you in love with lace?

  9. I too am in love with lace. I bought a long sleeved black lace one like your Free People pick. And I am craving these lace booties right now...they sound ugly, but trust me, they're adorable. I'll probably break down and buy them next paycheck.
    But yes, blazer and tights!

  32. I tried on a lace top at H&M earlier today but it confused me. And was itchy. So I'm not quite with you this one...not today anyways, tomorrow's always a new day.

    If you are looking for an affordable lacy something, h&m did have a bunch of different lacy tops.
