Am I the only woman in the world who doesn’t own a single item of White (or Cream) Lace. I mean, I thought I did, but apparently I didn’t.
Or so it appeared at the very beginning.
You can, therefore, imagine my consternation when the deadline for The Fab 40s series drew close (as in the day before) and I hadn’t gotten my
act outfit together. Naturally, I went into panic mode. What’s a woman to do?
Rummage. That’s what.
And rummage I did until I found this charming little Lace Top, in white, with a beautifully beaded collar. Success.
Yes, I do smile. Sometimes.
My second pair of Joggers, also from Forever 21. It seemed the perfect complementary piece to the intricacy (and somewhat busy details) of that Lace top. And by the by, I’ve been dying to wear those heels for the longest time.
Snakeskin Ring is from Karla Deras while Snakeskin Cuff is from Unearthed on Etsy. I have a thing for exotic skins, if you haven’t noticed that by now. My adorable B&W Polka Dot Clutch is from ellebee206, you can find her on Instagram, a treasure trove of, well, treasures.
And that’s me, taking on Lace. How did I do? Be gentle?
Take a look at how my lovely ladies styled their Lace. Don’t they all look spiffy and stunning?

My personal fave? Definitely Dixie’s take on the theme. Edgy and sleek and crisp. Jane’s outfit is a close second, the epitome of comfy chic with a little rock n roll (did you see the studs on her shoes??).
Tell me, do you have a closet-full of lacey bits? And no, inners don’t count 😉

You’re totally rocking the lace theme Sheela….it seems these posts are definitely expanding your wardrobe lol!
Here’s to next month 🙂
LOL yes they are. Necessity is the mother of all eleventh hour fashion purchases, I say.
White lace paired with joggers? Yes, please! Love the mix of sweet and edgy…well done. 🙂
Thank you!!! Neither lace nor joggers are my bosom buddies so this was a massive step outside of my comfort zone, Debbie 🙂
love the lace detail and that collar is fab!!
Sandy a la Mode
Right??? It takes a run-of-the-mill lace top from almost granny to truly glam, and that’s why I love that collar 🙂
Loving that lace top Sheela, great choice and as always, all you lovely ladies look amazing! Much love, Kirsten xx
Thank you so much, my friend 🙂 which is your personal fave? I adore what Dixie did with hers, so badass. Can I say badass? I guess I can, it’s my blog ;D
Wow I love how you paired that lace top with those pants! Such a great way to balance the delicate lace, I’ll have to try that combo out one day 🙂 Also those heels are killer xx
Thank you SO much!!! Lace is SUCH a feminine, girly concoction and those aren’t words normally associated with my style so I needed something to up the quotient a tad 🙂
Sheela, I never would’ve thought to put all those pieces together and it totally works and you look super chic! Great job, Chick!
Muack!!! Thank you so much, babe 🙂 you always look so very put together and effortlessly chic.
You look amazing Sheela, I love the beaded details on the collar, a great spin to a classic top isn’t it? Have a great day hun! 🙂 xo~ Lena
It is indeed, Lena 🙂 I don’t do feminine very often (or very well) but I think this one just about passes mustre 🙂
You look great in this top! I can’t believe that you didn’t already have on in your closet.
Mimi & Chichi
I’m SO not a fan of lace LOL can’t stand it. Reminds me of Miss Havisham and mothballs and dust. I know I know, that’s so not true but there you have it 🙂
Love your lace top and shoes!! Such an awesome style. Xo
Thank you so much 🙂
What a great look, so glad to have found your blog.
Thanks SO much 🙂

I love the mix of edginess and feminine touch of this outfit!
Would love for you to stop by & join TBT Fashion link up.
Thanks so much, Alice, all the pieces came together by pure chance and I love it when that happens 🙂
You look absolutely fabulous with this lace top, Sheela. Love your shoes, too.
Thanks SO much, Liza, I love my shoes, I truly do 🙂
Sheela, I love how your top is peek-a-boo sexy. It’s when you look close that you see how lacey your top really is with that bandeau on underneath. I like that! Makes ya look!
Sheela, where did you end up finding the top? I know you dug deep, but when did you get the top? Where? What’s the story behind it? (You know me…;) It is lovely! And all the details accentuate the edge in you that I love!

Hahahaha!!! Trust you to be the one to detect that white bra thingy 🙂 it’s a stretchy bandeau from Brandy Melville and I love how useful it’s become. As for the top, well, I took it from my Poshmark closet inventory (shhh) and there you have it. GRIN GRIN and TRIPLE GRIN xoxoxo
Yay for this series Sheela!!
All the women look beautiful! Thank you for spotlighting them in a way only you can and thank you for introducing us to them.
Awwww, thank you so much for saying all that, babe. Thank you 🙂 xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

You know I am a big fan of lace, The delicate collar and lace top are perfect on you, and of course I expected sky high shoes, I would have to sit in them too! Love the joggers with the lace!
Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!
LOL yes it wouldn’t be a Sheela look without heels 🙂 thanks, Jess, it was truly serendipitous. The top was in my hands, the pants were at the very top of my reject pile (from a previous shoot), and voila.
That works! MUCH Better than how my hubby can pick out clothes, which is , pick it out, and say ” Does this smell today?” 🙂 x
Oh yes, MUCH!! Your husband sounds adorable though 🙂
I loved seeing how each of you have a different take on wearing lace and how yours is more street style or clubbed style but equally as lovely. You rock this look for sure.
That is the coolest thing I’ve heard today, thank you ever so much, Rachel!!!
I love the collar on your lace top! So pretty! And those heels are killer!
Thanks for linking up to Flashback Fashion Fridays!
Jeans and a Teacup
Thanks so much, Jessica. The top would’ve been way too girly without the metal accents that collar added so YAY 🙂
I love your lace top with beaded collar, so pretty! And those shoes are gorgeous! 🙂
Recently I have started as a guest designer for a famous bag brand and my first design of a belt bag is out! ❤ I would love to hear what you think about it! 🙂
Hope to see you soon on my blog
Kisses from Zurich,
Hey there, Kristina. Wow, congratulations!!! What an achievement and yes, I shall definitely check out your design 🙂 thank you SO much for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it.
You really nailed the lace top. Love the detail on the collar, and the right amount of see through that you’re giving us. Ok, on to those shoes. The Bomb! Stunning as always…xo
I thought I had commented on this post, but apparently I just looked. According to me, you did very well on wearing lace. Combining it with jeans. That is what I also did. There needs to be some balance for the frilliness and romance. The shoes are awesome!!
You are rocking this look! So cool. Am I nerdy to say ‘rocking’? But that’s what it looks like to me. Funny what we can find in our wardrobes if we really look isn’t it? Or scary? I found you on Not Dressed as Lamb and am really happy to be your latest follower (as of the minute I write, I am sure you’ll have twenty more before you read this!) Look forward to seeing more from you. Thanks!
