Lace is so “haute” right now!


Lace is everywhere right now and is one of the key trends for Spring/Summer! “Think boudoir and vintage-inspired for one of the season’s biggest trends’ says buying director Luisa de Paula. Lace isn’t just for the boudoir and can be flirty, romantic and elegant depending on how you wear it.

This beautiful cream lace dress with the sweetheart neckline is from the American designer Milly of New York. Milly’s founder Michelle Smith worked at luxury fashion houses Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Dior after graduating from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Launched in 2001, her vintage-inspired brand of glamour has earned the label a host of stylish fans, including Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Thandie Newton. The Milly brand epitomizes classic, timeless silhouettes with a quirky, feminine twist.

The rest of the dress is fully lined. There is a central back zip. The dress was originally £335. I have a size 6 US / 10 UK available, only worn once, which is £95. I also have an 8 US / 12 UK, which is new without tags, and is priced at £135.
