♔ Fit for a Queen ♔

I don't know about you, but personally I've always associated lace with romance, tea parties, and the pinnacle of girliness (that's probably not even a word, please excuse). Although it can feel itchy, I love how lace looks. Some people may think it's old-fashioned, but I like to think it's timeless. I. heart. lace. anything.

When I first saw this lookalike dress (photos below) at the store, I couldn't help but be reminded of the Queen of Cute Dresses, Miss Taylor Swift (seriously, has anyone ever seen her in pants...?). Needless to say, I was very excited to do a post on it! Hope you like!

Accessories: cream bangle (f21), gold rhinestone bangle (bcbg), gold snake watch (kohl's), vintage necklace & 2 toned brown leather belt (local thrift store), brown leather purse (steven by steve madden), pink heart sunglasses (flea market)
Clothing: lace dress (found it at ross for $9.99! score!)
Shoes: brown flats (kohl's)
