Who can say no to Chantilly Lace, or even “Chantilly-like” lace?
I love how the simple lines and contrast with the ivory under-layment are used to showcase the richness of the lace. In addition, the straight lines of the pleats along the hemline of the ivory underskirt are a fun juxtaposition against the curviness of the lace. Simple yet eye-catching.
