From guipure, crocheted, knotted, tape, bobbin, knitted or needle to cutwork or machine-made, lace creates magic. It makes you feel sexy or innocent, almost like an angel. It teases imagination and adorns your skin with beautifully crafted "drawings". It makes you want to dance. It can turn you into a princess. You can add a touch of lace or wear it top to toe (just remember two very important words: "sophistication" and "quality”). Designers are loving lace this season. What about you? Have you got a piece of magic in your wardrobe?
