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 become my new favorite underwear: they’re sexy, comfy, and with just the right amount of stretch, they’re totally flattering. And yeah, did I mention they’re $5 a pop? I’m about to grab a few more colors, and I encourage you to join me! [$5, Target]
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 and sunny. What do you think?

We love a hint of lace on a dress or shirt — it’s flirty, romantic and ultra-feminine. And that’s why we’ve gathered 10 pretty dresses with lace detailing and overlays. Try a bit of lace and add some texture to your life (pun intended, of course).
Lace is showing up everywhere right now — dresses, tights, gloves, skirts — but I’m especially loving the way it’s being used in necklaces. The look of a dainty piece of lace skimming the collarbone is so striking and feminine. Here are 10 lace necklaces handmade by Etsy artists, and trust me: they’ll look equally gorgeous with a little black dress or a little black T-shirt.
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 coveting it hard. The just-below-the-knee length, 3/4 sleeves, and crew-neck, combined with the tight fit, offers just the right amount of sex appeal. This dress is 100 percent ladylike va-va-voom. [$79.95, H&M]
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.

For as wild as she is, it seems that Lady Gaga sometimes gets bored of being Lady Gaga. And that’s when she really pulls out all the stops — the lace face, the shower curtain dress, the latex top, and the large and unnecessary fan — all of which she wore to a RADIO appearance yesterday. A radio appearance. I’d love to see her try her hand at crafting or baking. I’m sure she could whip up the most amazing edible quilt ever. Keep reading »
We were always of the mindset that face tattoos were strictly the realm of crust punks, Mike Tyson and the criminally insane. 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? Would you rock a lacey-facey? [$30, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »
