My love affair with lace started early in life. Growing up, my mom who is a talented seamstress, custom made all of my special occasion dresses to my specifications – and each dress had a bit of lace at my request. There was the communion dress with a lace skirt and matching bag. The green satin dress with white polka dots and lace bib (please forgive me for this creation – Laura Ingalls wore a version on Little House on the Prairie except she passed on the polka dots and green satin). And of course, I can’t forget the pink satin dress with the asymmetrical skirt and lace top overlay. Lace played a small part in many of my childhood memories.
I’m not alone in my love of lace – designers throughout time have been fascinated with the intricate fabric and countless beauties have worn lace for their most special occasions. As much as I love lace I don’t get to wear the lovely fabric very often – seeing as I’m not exactly a red carpet regular and all. Now I can be a little closer to lace with the new LOVE LACE collection from MAC. MAC has channeled the universal love of lace into a new collection that celebrates its mysterious and alluring qualities. Here are our favorites from this collection:
