Lace top remix

N and I stumbled across this pretty ivy-covered doorway which was perfect for our photos, even if this set didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. Oh well. It's actually part of an otherwise seedy-looking hotel, you know, the kind that looks like it rents rooms by the hour (*wink wink*). That's the magic of blogging - sometimes there's a totally different world going on just beyond the frame of the camera.

I've always loved this gauzy lace top with details like fabric-covered buttons and a Victorian-style collar, but it's hard to wear. For lack of the proper terms, it's got a horizontal seam separating it into upper and bottom halves, so it looks odd tucked in. And wearing layers in the winter covers a lot of the embroidery. So I decided to knot it and wear it over a simple black dress instead. The necklace was a gift from my cousins and is much cherished!
