Lovely Lace

Lace: Vintage Blouse: Vintage Pants: Goodwill Shoes: Payless

Can I first say what a surreal experience it was to be on the front page of Chictopia yesterday/today? I opened the site to check my shit and low and behold it was my own face staring back at me. Seriously such an honor. I celebrated with one too many glasses of wine and becuase of that have been a bit sluggish all day but it was totally worth it. OK enough with the dork talk...

I found this lace cardigan (?) I guess that's the only thing I know to call it by, at a vintage store in Fullerton yesterday and fell hard for it. I love the subtle details such as the tiny puff sleeves and slightly elongated front lapel. It's pieces like these that fuel my shopping addiction.

Wonderful for you! I found a lace cardi thrifting recently too! It wasn't in perfect condition but I snapped it up anyway because I thought it was lovely! So is yours.

I'd love the slyly steal that lace cardigan, what an amazing find! And you wear the high-waisted pleated pants so well, it really fuels this strange desire in me to go find a pair for myself. :)
