Lace dresses with wellies


This photo was in last Saturday's Guardian newspaper under the headline, "Wear it with wellies - Lace dresses are summer's festival hit". {See online version of the article here.}Yeah! It's festival season, of course, with Glastonbury last weekend.

Lace with rubber boots is one of my favorite combinations. I love taking things that are perceived as 'luxury' - like lace, silk, velvet, bone china and so on and slumming it into something mundane or practical. Very nice.

The 1940s was a great period for lace with homespun, homely and country clothes, especially fair isle handknits and definitely wellies on the farm.
