I remember my first eyelet lace dress, which my mother made for me when I was about six years old. Every time I wore it (and I wore it constantly until it wouldn’t squeeze over my growing body) I felt super fantastic. I felt like a fairy princess who could take on the world and be a nurse/astronaut/singer/ballet dancer. Like I said, I was six. The point is, in that dress I first knew the power of an outfit that adds confidence. I have never forgotten that lesson.
And I’ve never forgotten the cool comfort of the eyelet, either. When late spring and early summer hit and the mercury starts rising fast, there are few fabrics that breathe as well and look so crisp as eyelet. It’s always feminine, always chic, always fun.
Between warm childhood memories and cool adult comfort, you can imagine how thrilled I was to see this delectable clutch purse by Lauren Merkin:
What’s more, it’s on sale! Originally priced at $250.00 at Neiman Marcus, it’s been marked down to a mere $112.00. At that price you can carry this to summer weddings, lunches on the town, and that family reunion picnic you were dreading.
After all, with such a lovely purse at your side, you’re bound to be talked about in a good way.
