That Kate Middleton, I just love watching her style. She also just seems to exude happiness. Doesn't she? I think she is one of the best examples of Audrey Hepburn's quote "a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear". She just seems lovely.
This dress I am sharing today I originally saw on her in a beige/ivory lace combination. Her's was long sleeved and her sash around her waist may not have been sewn in.
I made it in black, with the satin sash sewn in to make it stay in place easier. I also shortened the sleeves from long to half length.
Here it is!
I usually wear it with my favorite green statement necklace you saw in the post about my striped dress.
And I pair it with my favorite pair of green heels. I love heels. I love green. I have a hard time finding shoes in my size. I also have a hard time finding shoes I like the looks of. So these have become somewhat of a staple for some of my nicer dresses.
Here is the back.
I also had the lace extend past the lining at the hemline to help show off the pretty lace. I did the same at the sleeves, just not letting the lace extend as far.
A little up close of the hemline.
An up close of the gorgeous lace. I just love love love this lace! A lot!!!
Sadly however, I guess this lace was a one time deal. So the store I got it at can't order in anymore. I am really very sad about this! I would have considered buying a whole roll of it if possible! It's just that great!
Thanks again for stopping by!
