A Pop Of White And Lace

White lace dresses, beautiful bouquets, and charming classic music,

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding was a fairytale. Later that year my favorite online retailer, ASOS, released a cute dress inspired by Kate’s! Being the fashion and british history lover I am, I just had to get it: and I got two! One in black and one in white.

This little number is perfect for brunches, dinners, garden parties, and any event really. I love little white lace dresses. They are so versatile and lovely.

I coveted iconic dresses. So when I saw this copycat Kate dress I knew I had to snag it. It was only $79 and I wore it 3 times that year. I’ve worn in 7 times since then and each and every time I get compliments on it. You see, as I mentioned before, I keep thing – forever. It’s so important to choose quality items that will fit your capsule wardrobe. Now I know not everyone is trying to build on but you should have trusted pieces you can wear over and over again. This dress is one of those pieces for me.

As always, I’m wearing my trusted T-Strap heels again! I promise, I own more heels. These are just my BFF’s, like Netflix is to my couch. Like guacamole is to my nachos. Get my drift?

So what’s with all the lace lately? Lace is so timeless and I’m all about creating a timeless feel. So for my Petite Bijou gals, I wanted to let you in on my personal wardrobe secrets. I’ve gotten a few questions about what I think every women should have in her closet if she wants to recreate a timeless but classic wardrobe. It’s a staple in my Project Elegance Wardrobe.

Before I go on with what this project is all about, I want to show you some of my favorite white lace dresses. Check out some of the pieces I’ve found! Heads up, ASOS is having a major sale right now with things up to 70% off! Check it out here.
