I need to confess something: I have a Lace-Phobia. It’s true! Let me explain…
When I was a teenager, my mother had a small home-based business making lacy-teddy bears in wicker chairs. It’s true. We spent hours with hot glue guns, strategically gluing strands of lace and ribbon onto stuffed bears. My mother sold the Bears-in-Chairs at craft shows and in gift shops. Believe it or not, the bears were actually quite popular at the time (it was the mid-nineties after-all).
Ever since that time, years ago, I have associated Lace with Things-You-Find-In-A-Little-Old-Grannie’s-House, not at all something that I would want to put on my body and wear where people could see me!!
However, the time has come for me to face my Phobia and overcome it once and for all!!! (I am brave!!)
OK, here goes…
Vintage Dress… Gorgeous! (Ok, I am starting to warm up to the idea a little)
