Hottest Trend Spotted in Austin, TX: Racy Lace

Edited by

In the most scorching city we’ve stopped in yet, one cool trend permeated clear through the streets: Lace. The spacey material came in crop tops, layered dresses, over neon underlays, and in racy red. Hell, even I was wearing lace! I wore this ivory lace dress I scored at The Vintage Twin trunk show right before I left on this road trip across America. See how Austin, Texas served up the daintiest/sexiest trend of the season, and how you can, too.

Float on Clouds of Rainbow Chiffon with Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2011 Collection
