The Lace Effect








Dress: KTRcollection ‘Made-to-Order’ lace dress | Top: Fashion Forms tube top | Bottom: Wacoal high waist shorts

* * *

I’m a huge fan of form fitting midi (lace) dresses, but I just wanted to wear something a little less restricted that’s flowy and unique a few weekends ago for an All Black party. When worn with a nude top and high waist shorts, this dress is the perfect combination of sexy, sassy and sophistication (and a little daring! :). While this look is probably best suited for a evening event, this lace dress can also be worn during the day with a slip dress or skirt & top underneath. Also, if you want to get extra creative, the waist string can be removed and this can be worn as a poolside coverup (just be careful not to get the dress in salt or chlorine water because it’s delicate). You can now order this custom dress at KTRCOLLECTION.

Whoever said, “do what you love and you’ll never work in a day in your life” is a damn liar!

While editing these photos I started to realized how much caffeine dependent I have became in the last 6 months (no it’s really not a prop lol). I used to never drink coffee but now if I don’t have a cup, I cannot seem to function.

In the last couple of years I have been keeping myself busy trying to maintain my career (my 9-5), my passion for creating clothes, managing every aspect of my small biz (which entails biz dev, pr, design, sew, accountant, finance, shipping & receiving, customer service, IT, you name it) and keeping up with my blog. By the end of the day I feel lucky to be able to do what I love (KTRcollection) and have a (day) job at an amazing company working with amazing people……. But some days I just feel pooped and wonder where my destination is going to be.

Then I remembered what we were taught growing up.

It’s not about arriving, it’s not about how quickly one can get there. It’s about what you take away from your experiences on the way there. It’s about the journey, the lessons learned, the people you meet along the way, and the ones who hung in there with you all the way. Growth and learning has no limit. Remembering these points really helped me stay on track and keep on going.

Well it’s 4am, I guess I better get some sleep now and put in a request at work for a clone tomorrow. :) Good night & sweet dreams!
