Meet The Most Perfect Pair Of $5 Panties

I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly…

Well Played: Anne Heche Looks Totally Wonderful In White

Anne Heche — she’s got a rep for being kind of crazy, no? Like, didn’t she once go on some wild sojourn where she believed that she had an alter ego named Celestia who was an alien. Well, whether Celestia or Anne picked it out, we’re really loving the white eyelet look. It’s so feminine…

Ladylike Lace Done Right

Lace — especially white or cream lace — has the tendency to look either childish or totally matronly. Surely it isn’t that hard to make, say, a lacy frock for a mature but still youthful and hip woman? H&M heard our plea, or we assume they did, because they’ve made this amazing cream, long-sleeve sheath and we’re…

Lace Toe Socks: Another Way To Tease The Foot Fetishist In Your Life

Here’s yet another way to hide your ugly toes — or drive the foot fetishist in your life extra-bonkers: Half-Pretties half-foot lace stockings. Basically, Half-Pretties cover your toes so that French lace peeks out of the top of your shoes. It’s pretty, sort of.  I don’t know if it’s $24.50-pretty, though. [Half Pretties via Jezebel]…

And then Laced and Waisted came along and made this temporary lace tattoo mask that adheres to your skin. It looks a little too Ke$ha-rific for our tastes, but what do you think?

Cheapskate: Go Sweet, Sexy, Or Demure With Lace

As fashion steps away from the ’80s this fall and returns to ladylike dressing, lace has become a major trend for the season. But this fabric — which can be sweet, sexy, and demure — is best served up in small doses, meaning one key item per outfit. We’ve found a ton of lace clothe…

DIY Lace Nails

It’s time to relinquish antiquated simple manicures and one-color nails.
