I think lace is really pretty, but I don't own much of it, because it became so trendy after Kate Middleton wore that stunning Alexander McQueen wedding gown, that I felt it was over-worn. However, when I saw this delicate pattern, I thought it was perfect.
I love having a variety of casual dresses I can throw on and go. My dad got me this necklace on one of his trips overseas to Dubai, and I love how unique it is. For years, he worked overseas and we only got to see him a few days a month, and although we wouldn't trade having him home for anything, it was always fun to receive gifts from around the world. Chocolates from Belgium, pastries from France, scarfs from India, candy from China; it felt like I was getting a small part of his experiences from these unfamiliar places of the world.
