All Laced Up and Everywhere to Go EBEW Lace

This picture is why I typically wear sunnies to take my outfit photos. Soooooooo tired!

You're probably saying to yourself-"self, this outfit can't possibly constitute as a lace challenge, where is the lace in this outfit?"  But as any style blogger knows, it's the attention to detail that matters . .  .


When my brother's girlfriend gave this shirt to my cousin who in turn gave it to me because neither of them wanted it, I was like hellzyeah!  And it just so happened to work perfectly for this lace challenge with Every Body Every Wear.   

I have seen a certain topic raised again and again the past few weeks about something that I have wanted to inquire you ladies (and gents) about.  This topic is constructive criticism.  How do you take it?  I know this is something that everybody has had to deal with, but I think that style bloggers deal with it a lot!  I saw an entry on FBFF not long ago.  Someone (sorry, I don't remember who) had posted an inquiry on a comment she had received on her blog.  It was not necessarily a negative comment, but she had felt a little hurt and didn't know whether to delete the comment or leave it up. 

I have to admit, I do not do well with criticism.  It's really hard to digest.  I take everything so personally (even though my stepdad tells me that the book he is reading states to never take anything personally).  I think this is really the hardest part about blogging-really putting yourself out there.  I have been really fortunate because I have not gotten anything close to a negative response (you're all so sweet!), but it is pretty inevitable.  How do you deal with criticism?  What is your personal policy when it comes to comments?  Do you leave them no matter what?  Do you only take out the mean ones that offer no kind of support?  Do you erase all of them that are not positive?  It's a personal choice.  I've just wondered about that, but would love to hear your thoughts! 

Well, enough of that negative random musing.  Hop on over now to EBEW and see how these lovely ladies got their lace on!

  1. I love how you knotted up the lace shirt so it looks carefree and sweet! I have never ever tried that before, and I should when summer rolls around.

    And you definitely dun look tired, you look beautiful. :)

  2. Addie you're such a sweetie! Thanks hun! And guuuuuuuurl, I am not just tired . . . this bee-atch is exhausted!

  3. Love your dress! Simply stunning!

  4. A vintage polka dot dress!! Sigh, what a lovely find!
    About constructive criticism, hmm, usually I think that if I have nothing good to say then it's better to keep my mouth shut. Once in a while if I think I can honestly say something nicely like "Love this outfit so much! Only thing is I'm not crazy about is the shoes, i think it would look even better with some heels" then I might say something like that.

  5. Thank you so much! I really appreciate that!

  6. Aw, thank you so much for your contribution. I think that a comment like that would be perfectly fine. I always am reluctant to leave them because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings in any way, but something like that could be very useful! Thank you so much for visiting!

  7. Loving this dress - especially the fluctuating hemline! The lace top adds some fun dimension to the back. - Katy

  8. Katy, thank you so much! I really appreciate it. And, darn it, I meant to talk about the hemline in this dress (as I've now posted it twice and have forgotten to talk about it) before I went off on a random rant. Thanks for noticing! Maybe next time!

  9. What a lovely dress!! Lace is a great addition to the already beautiful piece :)

  10. Thank you Tanvi! I saw you entered your beautiful photos in EBEW as well!

  11. Cute dress! Love the hemline. So fun!

  12. Thank you Keely! Sadly, when I took it off last night, I realized one of the straps had broken. :-( Looks like I really need to learn how to sew now!

  13. Adorable dress, the hemline is so unique. Congrats on the gifted lace top, it works perfectly for the lace theme.

    I haven't received any truly mean comments (yet), but I've left criticisms up because they've been polite. I would probably delete any hater-comments because in my book that's just as much spam as the penis enlargement comments.

  14. LOL Megan! Yeah, I would tend to agree with you. And thanks for the compliment on the dress and top!

  15. Love the lace!

    And I haven't really gotten any negative comments either (fortunately), but I'm really terrible with criticism too. I feel that if it's constructive, I'd keep it up. But if it's something entirely uncalled for, I would probably delete it.


  16. Thank you Kelly! I agree. Sometimes, it can be hard to take, but when presented positively, it can be really helpful!

  17. This is one of my favourite outfit!Love polka dot dress and the lacey shirt is so gorgeous!!!

  18. such a cute look on you!

  19. I am such a sucker for polka dots!!! I love your dress. So cute and breezy!

  20. They didn't want that top?? They must be crazy! That's a great shirt, love the open lace back, and it's great styling with the polka dot dress
