Not Your Grandma’s Vintage Lace

6 Feb

My lust for M.I.A’s lace dress in Madonna’s Give Me All Your Luvin’ inspired me to look for a vintage version.  I don’t want to copy her look; I want to interpret my own way and I think vintage is the best way to do that. I prefer vintage because I don’t have to worry about someone else wearing my outfit and I’m helping a fabulous item to be reused instead of tossed out.

Of course, if I’m shopping online Etsy is my go to spot.  I can search by vintage, price, and other descriptive details.  I found all these fabulous dresses by searching for a mini lace vintage dress.  Each dress stands out and is uniquely styled.

This is my favorite look.  The white dress over the colorful leggings is magical layering.

Vintage Betsey Johnson

Perfectly innocent

This bright orange sleeveless dress complements the tough shoes

Skulls and Lace

Subtly Sexy

Long Sleeves

Three Quarter Length

Short Sleeves

This whole look is amazing

If you are brave, don’t layer and wear sheer.  Very Carrie Bradshaw.
