Something about this lace coat renders everything underneath it infinitely more elegant. Even this old Express dress (though Express does occasionally surprise me with timeless pieces such as this one - I mean, tea length, full skirt - who would have thought?).

  3. You are so great at incorporating vintage stuff. I don't even have the patience to look for it. Props to you! And I don't go in Express much anymore, but I do still have some pieces I got there that I still wear. I love their editor pants; I have them in like 6 different colors!
