Ladylike Lace & Bad Lighting

by Caitlin on September 28, 2011

Bad Lighting… checkLadylike Lace… oh yeahBlouse: Goodwill, Skirt: Charity Shop (seen here & here), Heels: EndlessI found this blouse hanging off an end cap in the housewares section of Goodwill and did a happy dance as soon as I tried it on. The lace detailing and slight poof of the sleeves just blew me away and the Victorian style collar adds the perfect touch of old world lady like glamour.

What pieces in your closet have your heart all a flutter this week? 

*I apologize for the bad lighting. I’m traveling for work and quickly snapped these pictures in my hotel room before dashing off to a meeting.

Love this lovely lacy top! Scores at Goodwill are the best! And the lighting actually looks pretty cool. No worries!

I think the lighting actually looks cool! It has to be the blouse. It’s absolutely gorgeous on you! See, this is the kind of stuff I want to find at Goodwill!

Dear Ms. Pierce, I admire your keen eye for fashion. We have followed up on some of your recommendations and indeed I find articles that I want to ourchase. Thank you for encouraging a new “eye” when we shop in places such as Goodwill.
