  • Prom Trend 2014: Lace and Sheer Panels

    January 30th, 2014Alanna NelsonProm, Prom Trends

    Four hundred years ago, lace meant you were rich, religious or regal. With the advent of machine made lace in the 19th Century, the mere mortal could afford to decorate their dresses and home with lace motifs. From formal gowns to curtains, lace was everywhere. Perhaps too much of a good thing eventually led to lace being labeled old fashioned.  One thing’s for sure, lace is back on the runway.  For 2014, pairing lace with sheer panels makes evening dresses anything but old fashioned!
