So I bought some of this cotton lace (58 inches wide, $6/yard!) and now I'm at a loss as to what to do with it. It seems summery … in a Sophia Loren kind of way. I've never been much good at Sophia-Lorening, so any alternate suggestions of What To Do With Black Cotton Lace would be much appreciated.
Other things I'm not good at, sartorially, in case you need a list:
- the long boho dress with flat sandals and flat hair
- any look that requires a David-Bowie/Grace-Jones slash of colored makeup across the face (it gets all over my glasses)
- shiny satin cocktail dresses with diamante clips
- and, of course, pants
I can see a kind of kicky 60s-shift swimsuit coverup (with patch pockets!), but considering I'd probably get more use out of a hazmat suit, I'm looking for other ideas …
