I fell completely in love when I saw the Isabel Marant tiered lace shorts from her Spring ’11 Collection (via style.com), I just had to make a pair of my own. And recently, I stumbled upon a photo of Rumi Neely (via fashiontoast.com), styling herself in a black pair, which felt so effortless.
I’m not much of a girlie girl… but I do love my lace. Why not take something so feminine, like lace, and mix it with something menswear inspired, like a short. It feels so modern, and definitely can be worn in so many ways. It can be paired with an oxford shirt and boots to take a more boyish route… or go all out feminine with a romantic top and heels. This project was pretty simple, I guess the hardest part for me was waiting for the glue to dry… I get so antsy… I just wanted to throw them on!
