The Lace Blazer

As the leaves begin to change color, the romantic aesthetic is seeping into fall fashion.  As a devoted romantic myself, it is refreshing to see a delicate femininity grace the runways and racks this fall.  The coquettish charm of laces, brocades, and taffetas is nostalgic of La Belle Epoque when ladies with lace parasols spent their days drinking tea and conducting clandestine affairs with their paramours in nineteenth century Paris.  I chose this white, lace blazer because it has a wonderfully soft lining and nice texture.  I paired it with a floral baby-doll dress and about 12 strands of pearls for that romantic emphasis.  

Blazer: Aqua, from Bloomingdales
Dress: Vintage, from Metropolis (a great East Village vintage store)
