I promised you two icons today loves, and I am nothing if not kinda reliable. For the lace edition, I have the stunning and graceful beauties of Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides. The Lisbon sisters, headed by Lux Lisbon (played by Kirsten Dunst), are as delicate as lace itself. Fragile, lovely, ladylike and perhaps with a bit of a conservative stigma attached. Set in the 70’s in a small town, the lives of the Lisbons was tragic and romantic at the same time. Enjoy the inspiration below!

Many apologies we’re late with last week’s Iconic Friday posting. Eeeek. The holiday weekend was upon us and we dipped out of the office a bit early to catch bbq’s with friends and family. Hope your 4th was sparkler-spectacular!
Lace has been part of fahion’s history as far back as the 1400’s. Lace’s original birthplace is generally considered to be in Itlay and then spread throughout Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries. First woven with linen, gold, silver and silk threads, now cotton is widely used. Different lace patterns were used to identify religious and community heritages and today, lace shows its pretty face by continuing to pop up season after season on the high-fashion runways taking on shapes in accessories, boots and all forms of clothing. Above is a smattering of photos pilfered from designers like Miu Miu and Dolce & Gabbana as well as lower cost items from smaller boutiques and chains like Forever 21. Enjoy!
