I love lace-with-something-else. A lace tee with boyfriend jeans, a lace skirt with a graphic tee. Lacy tights with oxfords. I enjoy the juxtaposition of traditionally feminine lace plus modern pieces.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

The sleeveless grey dress here (similar) is one of my summer favorites. It’s by a new-to-me brand, Mado Et Les Autres. I found it at our Molly Mutt thrift and fell for the ruffled skirt and perfect knee length. I have so many lightweight tops that can be worn over the dress, to make fresh looks. Today I chose a vintage-style lace tank (sim) and I think it goes, if not “matches”.

The pretty green pendant (sim) was a gift from Sandy, and the vintage bracelet is from Citizen Rosebud‘s shop. Hair is the Paige by Paula Young.

  1. Thank you for hosting Patti. That black and beige(?) color makes for a very classy yet a bit edgy mix because of the pattern. I got a vintage lace skirt a while ago at a store in Berlin and love wearing it with any kind of top. Its fun…Wishing you a lovely week. Weather of here is just plain awful. Very humid. But things are looking up for next week 🙂 xo Sabina

  2. I totally get that juxtaposing thing, hard/soft, feminine/masculine, lacy/bold. This combo looks great, and I sense a ’20s vibe. Niiiice. Thanks for the linkup, Patti.

  3. I can’t believe how beautiful your ensemble is, Patti. So 1920s. What is the underdress fabric? I luv it all!

  4. This is such a beautiful dress, I am always at attention -when I see lace. You look beautiful!!


  5. Beautiful layered look! Once again you are giving me ideas… I have a similar lace top and have never considered wearing it over a dress.

  6. I think this lace suits you very well. The dress might be beautiful, but this top is gorgeous. What a piece of art.
    Joined you again for Visible Monday. I am having a few days off work, so more time…

  7. The lace top is perfect over your dark toned dress. Enjoy that sea breeeze and many thanks for hosting Visible Monday.

  8. You look gorgeous in this outfit. I love the blue pop of color with the sandals that even have a heel! They are stunning!

  9. I love this look, Patti! I love lace even though I own very little. And I can’t wait to see what other ways you’ll style this dress…

    Thanks for the link up & have a great week!

  10. Very fabulous and perfect for warm days. You look fantastic and I look forward to seeing more of your styling genius with this dress. Thanks for the link up.


  11. The lace top is beautiful! I love it over a darker dress like this; it allows the lace to really show up. Gorgeous! xx

  12. Funny thing, I just started appreciating lace this year. And I agree, with jeans-I actually am wearing it with some pretty distressed jeans today.
