a rose by any other name

While flipping through the channels last night, trying to find something to watch (frankly, every show on after Gossip Girl is a total letdown!), I stumbled upon Lela Rose, who was featured on Tim Gunn's Guide to Style. I really loved her pretty dresses, and decided to investigate further. Sure enough, she does bridal gowns, and she does a LOT of lace. I LOVE lace! Especially the style of lace she does, very open and not a bead or bedazzle in sight!

Now, I'm pretty sure she started designing her ready-to-wear before she launched a bridal line. It is easy to see how the two influence each other by looking at these very pretty, lace inspired day dresses.

I will not kid you, her line is uber-expensive. So, if you can't afford it, you can for sure draw inspiration from her feminine designs. Check out her website for retailers.
