a delicate obsession


I have a pretty major obsession with pale lace, I have for many years. Along with an entire section of my closet reserved for white & cream blouses I have an entire section of another closet reserved for pale lace dresses. Recently I have amassed a lot of pale lace dresses for the shop and got them all on the rack today for a little macro-shoot. Come spring, all of these will be in the shop (one of them already is). Sometime I should add my own collection of pale lace to the photoshoot but I think it might be freaky to see JUST how much of it I am hording.

What do you obsess over & collect?

ooo that is delightful! I have a small collection of lace dresses that I adore. The best one is indeed pale lace. So pretty - waiting to see them in the shop.

lace makes me weak in the knees. I love those close-ups you took! the pink one especially, so gorgeous.

I kinda obsess over vintage pill boxes, though I've only acquired 3 to date. They're all so tiny and pretty though, maybe I'll post about them soon!

Hi! I've been reading/following your blog awhile now but its only now that I've had the courage to write. :) I love lace dresses too and your collection must be to die for. I love the second to the lace photo and I'm so looking forward to the collections debut in spring!
I love vintage jewelry and I think my collection is starting to grow!

I obsess over velvet bow details, lace and big full skirt dresses. I always want to look like I might be going to a tea party:)

Sorry, I have lace on the brain. I meant, the second to the last photo!

golly, seeing them altogether like that is so wonderful. Wearing it makes me nervous though....white wine only!

Oh my goodness! I share this obsession of yours, these pictures are gorgeous.

I lust over lace dresses. I don't actually like to wear them because the lace tears so easily (for plus sizes at least) I have one in my shop right now that I treat like its made of glass. I had a lace suit and it crumbled when i put it on the mannequin..twas sad times.

Well, I'll just say it: This is kind of like looking at a bunch of pretty naked people! Pretty skin-tones . . . I love this post.

It IS kind of like looking at a bunch of pretty, naked people! Lace is so classic. It makes my heart melt.
