Trend Alert: Longing for Lace

Fashion to Décor- Trend Lace
There is something about lace besides the fact that it is definitely the most sensual fabric alongside silk, it is feminine and delicate yet mysterious and elegant. It has a vintage aura reminiscent of times gone by and yet can be just as modern while maintaining an allure of classic style. Fellow blogger Katie has done Trend Lace for this weeks Tag a Trend and we have taken the trend from Fashion to Décor. Showcasing today are products inspired from this intricate material- Lace*

Trend Alert: Peek a boo

We are all influenced by fashion. Even those who say they are not influenced by fashion are actually more influenced by fashion. Hence it is not shocking Decor gets a lot of its inspiration from season trends as seen on ramp. So to map out this years Spring-summer 2013 trends we got fashion designer Neti Jolly of XOXO to help us. To buy things from XOXO or simply ask Neti for fashion tips, log on to her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/www.xoxo.co.in.

Trend: Peek-a-boo
Be sexy yet coy, the same feminine flavour is going to be seen this season through peek-a-boo dresses and tops. Dresses with the side cutouts, shirts with shoulders peeking out, tights with round cutouts and heart-shaped holes in the backs of dresses.Along with sheers and lace are all the trend for spring-summer 2013.
