Lovely Lace

January 17, 2013 at 2:13 pm , by

In our February story, we answered all your burning fashion questions and one of them was about lace. Lucky for you fashionable folks, there are lots of lace options that are pretty and fun (not skanky and trashy, we promise!).

(For credit info on this pic, click here.)

Let’s take a peek at some other lacey numbers available for your shopping pleasure.

I can think of endless layering possibilities for this eyelet lace tank from American Eagle.

At Piperlime, you can pick up this navy blue (swoon!) Joie top on sale!

I have these lace capri pants from Ann Taylor in navy and I loooove them. The fit is amazing!

Love this lace collar tee from Madewell.

Lace ballet flats from Loft. Yes! And 60% off? Yes! Yes! Yes!

And who wouldn’t love a little trompe l’oeil dress from J. Crew? 

The lace top we featured in our November issue from Talbots is on sale for a song!

This lace skirt from Anthropologie is super pretty in that berry color.

It’s no surprise that Anthro has tons of lace. I love the idea of something that sweet and feminine on a comfy sweatshirt-style sweater.

Happy Shopping!

Shopping with Sue…at American Eagle

Confession time: I’m 39 years old and I shop at American Eagle. I know, I know. You thought that anyone who owned property was too old to shop there, right? Well, my friend. You are wrong. And you’re missing out.

My love affair with AE began a few years ago when I was hunting for Boyfriend Jeans. They were the newest look in denim (at the time) and I could not find a pair that didn’t make me look like…well, a boy. Sure, the premium denim lines were carrying them but if you know me, you know that I don’t buy $200 jeans. My hunt brought me to American Eagle, where I tried the Boycut style. Angels sang and the glow of heaven was shining down in that fitting room that day. (And that’s saying a lot. Jeans + Fitting Room = Tears, usually.) As if that wasn’t enough, they also made them in white the following spring. Needless to say, I’ve been a fan ever since. (Unfortunately, the boyfriend look is on the wane so AE has moved on but – great news! – they make amazing skinnies!)

The jewelry has always been one of my favorite things about AE. It’s cute and fun and cheap. I mean, Crazy Cheap! Like, under-$20-and-they’re-usually-having-a-buy-one-get-one-50%-off-sale cheap. And since summertime jewelry should be cute and fun and cheap, I’ve been stocking up. Friendship bracelets, feather necklaces, and studded earrings – I just can’t get enough. No joke – the minute I finish writing this, I’m going online to buy the necklace pictured here. It’s only $19.50!

So, don’t think your too old for AE! Me? I’ll be shopping in there with the high school kids until they kick me out!

And I should mention that if you are old enough to have fashionable little offspring – make sure to check out 77 Kids, the childrenswear line from American Eagle.  It’s where I got my daughter her first pair of boyfriend jeans! Naturally…
