The Vintage White Lace Dress

Over the weekend I spotted Sam of Could I Have That in this perfect white lace maxi dress, and I thought – “Wow, I adore that dress!”  Also, I thought – please let me look as fabulous as Sam’s grandmother when I too, am 91 years old.


I love the vintage feel of a long lace dress and likely because we all conjure up images of the big day when picturing a floor-sweeping white dress, even the simplest of it’s kind evoke a romantic feel.  Particularly, with peasant tops, tunics, floaty dresses in chiffon and soft cotton, full skirts with pleats and lace details, these dresses also have a perfect 70s-inspired vibe – which I love.

Here are a few other sweet lace styles I adore ( … clearly I miss my wedding):

Sam’s sleeved-maxi is from the line, Of Two Minds {you can check out their dresses here.}
