I'm not gonna lie. I used to hate lace. Even a few years ago, I only owned one piece of clothing with lace on it and it was a pretty black skirt with a lace overlay (I still have it, it's too pretty to ever give away!).
Until the past 6 months or so, I just thought lace looked either too 80s or too feminine. But then I realized that I like to look feminine and 80s fashions are totally back in and looking better than before and I jumped on the lace train.
Side thought...lace train...that brings crazy images into my head...an entire train covered in lace. hmm.
Ok, so here's how I used this sheer lace top as a piece for work for EBEW.
Make sure you check out how others are wearing lace over at EBEW.

And here's the dress on its own.
Isn't it adorable? And it was less than $20 at Target, YAY!
I think it kind of has a 70s vibe going for it.
I wore the first jewelry ever received from husband (first Valentine's Day when we were dating) and some sexy red hot heels!
Thanks to Lucy, the heels were chewed on that weekend...my fault for leaving them out, but still, not cool. I'm hoping the cleaners near me can fix them.
That's all for now. I'll be posting my lace outfit pics later tonight for EBEW.

April 2007. My favorite haircut EVER.
1. How often do you get your hair cut?
I get my hair cut probably once ever 4 to 6 months. I'm trying to force myself to get a hair cut more often because I know my hair wants to feel and look healthy, so I'm trying to make that every 3-4 months. My problem is that I used to always want something drastic done in order to get a bang (haha) for my buck. But now I realize that if I like my current hairstyle, then why not just get a trim and a few more layers instead.
2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the
cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?
August 2006. Short wavy hair with highlights
4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:
Not washing it. That sounds gross when you put it in writing, but my hair dries out if I wash it every day. When I had shorter hair, I washed it more often but I guess I just don't touch it as much when it's longer so it doesn't get greasy.
2005. Shortest haircut as an adult...donated that chunk to Locks of Love.
My pants were a little baggy so I paired them with a fitted blazer, which I think creates a more feminine look for the menswear.
I go through phases...one week, I'm all about cardigans, the next week it's blazers. Either way, I have to make sure I stay warm in my cold office.
No close up pics as I wasn't wearing any makeup yet!
I bet you're wondering where the Paper Doll part of this post is coming in and it's right here.
Well Elisa is letting the blogosphere choose her outfits for her. In other words, a real live paper doll for you to dress up, YAY!
