Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week I thought I would share my new lace top that I wore to the Kenny Loggins concert last weekend.  I walked into Macy's last weekend because they were having a big sale.  As soon as I walked in I saw this hanging on the rack and I grabbed a size MEDIUM (boy, does that feel good!) and went right to the dressing room! I knew I was going to love it and when I tried it on I REALLY loved it!!  Of course, this wasn't on sale and it was a splurge at $60! It's not lined so I was trying to think what I could wear under it. I ended up just using that nude color cami that I already had and it worked out perfectly!  I wore this with white jeans. I love to mix white and off white together!

Here's a close-up of it....


Although I try to buy most of my clothes on sale or at discount stores, somethings you just have to splurge on!  This top was one of those things!

In case you haven't noticed, I love lace clothes almost as much as I love lace table cloths!  Maybe I should start a blog called "My Romantic Closet"! lol  I just love lace!  I just realized I had yet another lace shirt on in the photo I posted Tuesday too! I wasn't kidding when I said I love lace!


Last weekend at Marshalls I also bought this lace maxi skirt! It was a deal at $25!  I just paired it with white tank top I got from BostonProper.com.  This outfit looks really cute with a jean jacket for those cooler summer nights! As I'm looking at this photo, I'm thinking it may look cute with a belt too!

 I'm all about accessorizing my outfits as much as I am my home so I think I'm going to wear this necklace with it...

It looks sort of cheap in this photo, it looks much better in person. I love the mix of silver and gold! I bought it on sale at Macy's a couple months ago.



This is the last update on the wrens that made their nest in this angel head.  The babies flew away on Saturday and I missed it. Lauren got to see them though!  It was about 100 degrees on Saturday so I'm sure they couldn't wait to get out of there.  I'm wondering if they use the same nest year after year or if I can take it out of there. I'm dying to see what it looks like!  Any one know?

I love your new laceys!

P.S. IF the family has flown the coop, you can clean it out. Even if they do return they rebuild with new materials.

I love that necklace. Recently my mum and I have been looking through her vintage jewellery and this has given me an idea to be able to use some old pieces to make a new piece.

Thank you for hosting Cindy.

What a beautiful lace top!Sometimes you have to splurge to get something you really like.You could leave that out displayed on an old mannequin and it would look lovely!Thank you for hosting.

Gorgeous! I love Victorian clothing.

Elsie said...

Cute top Cindy, you have excellent taste. I know what you mean about the little birds. Mine flew away too out of my plant in the back. Now I have some in my urn with my flowers right by the front door.
It is the Carolina Wren and she
is hindering watering my plant.
I have to be careful, she has
4 eggs in the nest.

Thanks for hosting. Glad I had something to share this week.

jeanetteann said...

You know I love lace so much too. I pin pics of it often. I saw your post last week when you were wearing the top to the concert. It is lovely and suits you so well. I think you can dress that up or down for day or evening and it would look just as good. It feels good being a medium and can fit into most clothes doesn't it. I don't think $60 was expensive,when you think about how many times you will wear it and have it for years,as they are dateless. enjoy xxoo

Wow Cindy,
I love lace too and have lots of lace tops. Most of them I get at Forever 21. I wish I still was!? Do you have a Forever 21 in your area? I can wear a large in most of their things and I love the young style. I'm hanging on to youth as long as I can. Have a fun weekend girl.
