Nerdy lace

Laser cut lace was big on the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2013, and I love the way it puts a really modern spin on  lace patterning. Enjoying all of the beautiful, intricate designs there are floating around at the moment, on everything from invitations to dresses, and shoes to cupcake wrappers. I have even seen a few cakes with the icing painstakingly cut out to mimic lace, giving it a laser cut feel. Very cool!

I love the versatility – the way you can layer it over a coloured fabric, or show a peek of skin. I think it looks amazing with a flash of bright lippie or a coloured shoe, or go for coloured laser cut lace for real impact. So striking!
