tangerine lace

I posted a while back that I was working on a lace dress for my brother-in-law's wedding.  Here was my inspiration for the dress:

via anthropologie (no longer in stock)

and here is the finished product:







 dress: me, shoes: nine west, bracelet: JCrew, necklace: Nashelle, earings: Forever 21, nails: China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint

all photos courtesy of the uber talented lalaslens.  Love you Lauren!

It turned out just as I was envisioning, with a little trial and error along the way.  Rit dye became my bff.  More on that little love affair later...

  8. So cute! I have been following your blog for awhile now, and I just found out that your husband is in law school with my daughter and son-in-law. In fact, they were both in DC at the same time this summer. Small, small world.
