Lace is a trend that comes back reinvented every season, so it’s no wonder that we’re loving it in all its varieties here at Retail Therapy. And anyway, what isn’t better than slipping into something that is so purposely perforated and light that it is basically designed to be easy and breezy in the warmer weather? Check out a few of our favorite pieces here, and then RUSH into the store to pick these, and other lacey stunners, up before it’s too late!
When one thinks of lace, she automatically pictures a white, frilly fabric, right? Well, though this first piece is the traditional white, it is anything but frilly or old fashioned! In a modern, sweatshirt shape with a sporty crew neck and elasticized wrists and waist (yes, like a sweatshirt), it can easily be worn as a casual top with boyfriend jeans or some joggers. But, we’ve decided to put a more romantic spin on it. Pair this lacey, racey top with a silky maxi skirt for an evening look that’s both romantic and relaxed. This would be perfect for dinner outside under the stars with someone special (like your equally fabulous biffle, of course).
This next outfit is great because not only is it black lace, but we also get to use our favorite 3.1 Phillip Lim muscle tank (which let’s be honest, any occasion to rock this top is a good one). Full skirts in every length and fabric are a huge trend for the Spring, which makes this lovely lady just perfect. In a unique design that reveals a little extra leg with a lining that’s a couple inches shorter than the lace hem, this black beauty will have anyone feeling like a class act. Pair it with a funky top (like we’ve done) and some sky-high pumps, and you’re good to go for work or classy cocktails a la Sex and the City. Cheers!
Now, we here at Retail Therapy are equal opportunity fashion lovers, and we want all of our pieces to get the attention they deserve. This LBD hasn’t gotten the attention it’s deserves, being on the sale rack and all (um, yes, it’s on the sale rack. RUN here now). Shall we compare thee to a full-body photoshop session? Perhaps. This cocktail dress wraps the body in a stretchy, comfortable fabric that creates curves where there were none, and hides any imperfections like a beautiful, full body Spanx. But, that is not why we love it (well, at least it’s not the only reason we love it). Upon closer inspection, this dress has an intricate yet subtle lace overlay that will bring all eyes closer; a flattering, but not very common, square neckline; and a mesh back detail that adds a modern and sporty detail unexpected in such a girly frock. We simply cannot say enough about this one!
Before we go into a full on ballad, we will leave you here with these tantalizing pieces, and we will see you soon in-store at 2086 Chestnut St. in the Marina. C’mon by, you always feel better after a little Retail Therapy!
