I know lace dresses were on every runway for autumn 2008 / winter 2009, but to me it’s a classic that never goes out of style. I like the versatility of lace: easy to dress up (heels) or down (boots), suitable for summer (bare legs) and winter (black opaque tights), and it can be worn with denim or leather jackets, blazers and cardigans. Throughout the years I’ve collected really great lace dresses. I never get bored of them and wear them again and again and again…..
What to wear with a lace dress? Maybe lace tights?

1966 was a brilliant year in cinema, with all the drugs going around, raging psychedelia-new wave this, new wave that.The crazier the better… this resulted in some crazy directors letting all their creativity loose and creating timeless sources of inspiration.
This Czech masterpiece “Daisies“(original title; Sedmikrasky) is about two teenage girls, both named Marie, who decide that since the world is spoiled they will be spoiled as well; accordingly they embark on a series of destructive pranks in which they consume and destroy the world about them. This freewheeling, madcap feminist farce was immediately banned by the communist government.
Two girls bouncing around in a-line dresses, one with a daisychain around her head.. this movie is basicaly a crazy moving fashion editorial. so be prepared to be completly confused and weirded out, yet utterly inspired.
