3 ways to lace it up

I'm sure you've all seen that sheer lace top that almost every clothing store is selling.  And, if you're like me, you've given in to the trend, purchased it and now regretfully stare at it hanging in your closet.  Mr. Pbr pulled it out of my unwearables a couple of days ago.  "Some stripper called.  She wants her shirt back."  I was determined to make it work, if only so he couldn't claim victory (so far I'm undefeated).  And I wanted to prove to myself that I could wear it in more than one way.

Little Black Dress update:

 The most important thing I learned about the lace shirt is that you have to treat it as an accessory.  Layer it under or over a piece in an outfit that already works to give it a new twist.  It won't work with every one you try, but keep at it.  Eventually you'll find a winner and then you can prove your boyfriend wrong... or have a great outfit, depending on your motivation.

I can't wait to start taking my pictures outside again and if it ever stops raining, snowing, freezing etc, I'll be doing just that.  Each of these pictures has 2 of my favorite Christmas presents in it- a lovely piece of art by my most talented friend Heather (it's the one in the white frame on the desk) and my camera remote control that I haven't learned how to hide.  I'll get there.  Or you'll learn to love it.
