Tom Ford Inspired Lace Dress F/W 11

30 October 2011
Good afternoon chicklets,

I have been doing a lot of research on the trends happening here and now and I saw this Uh-Mazing dress by y second favorite American designer Tom Ford in my new InStyle Magazine and I nearly had an clothes-gasm.

Let's just say I set out to find something similar. To be honest I have been looking for a dress like this since the spring -because I have an obsession of 1940 styled fashion--and I STILL have not found one in my price range yet. SO, I decided to show you guys how to recreate this look with your own special twist.

I decided to take this cute dress by Alex and dye it magenta. Add this black sheer top under it and these lace gloves. Instead of a velvet belt (because I could not find one) I decided on velvet ribbon, it works just as good. Top it off with some kitten heels and a satchel bag and heyyyyyyyy, Tom Ford for a fourth of the price..

  1. This is lace done the right way; sleek, elegant and sexy. However I wish he would choose a more-real women body type of actress or model to show his clothes. But I do agree that Ford is a great American Fashion Master.

  2. I feel you Ofelia, but i feel that way about most designers. The only two that stopped out of the box once or twice was Zac Posen and Marc Jacobs

Forever chic,
