"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of Nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin."
Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939
It is precisely because of the fantasy that lace evokes that it is my most favorite fabric of all. Cotton is soft, light, familiar as a second skin. Velvet is sensual, regal, mysterious, but lace is the fabric of dreams and romance...
A hat is a crowning glory
Cuffs are grand and elegant
A bride becomes a dream
Not only does lace transform a dress, a curtain, or a veil, but it also transforms the fields on warm Summer days...
I never cease to marvel at this Queen's beauty
the one and only: Queen Anne Lace!
