Shakespeare in lace

Call me old-fashioned but I am such a big fan of poetry. And I am madly in love with William Shakespeare's works. Sonnet 116 is my favorite and I memorize it by heart. I have always dreamed of living in Elizabethan era for a week and experience wearing corsets and ball gowns as daily wear. Yes, just for a week. I am not sure if I can survive more than a week without computers. And I sure will miss wearing trousers.


Well, to make that dream close to reality, I put on this outfit and brought the era into a modern world.

I have to confess that lace is in my lovin'-it list this season. It is a great way to indulge my feminine side. The jacket's structure, button details, and slightly puffy shoulders remind of me of doublets. And as you can read in my previous post, I love mixing he and she elements.
