Fashion Speak 101- Chantilly Lace

… and a pretty face, and a pony tail hanging down, that wiggle in the walk and giggle in the talk makes the world go round, there ain’t nothing in the world like a big eyed girl that makes me act so funny, make me spend my money, make me feel real loose like a long necked goose, like a girl, oh baby that’s what I like…

Holy detour! But who doesn’t have a soft spot for The Big Bopper, especially when he speaks so highly of us draped in lace?!!

There is no prettier lace than chantilly (coming from the French of course!) which is a delicate, ornamental lace made from silk that is made from an open, six-sided mesh background with floral designs. It is often in black for mourning wear ;( or white with an outlined design pattern. For the most part, the lace is used in detailing lingerie, gowns and dresses. In the 50’s and 60’s, the lace was used more prevalently than it is today.

Let’s bring it back new school with a fresh take on this sexy lace. We suggest visiting theHanky Pankyand Cosabellaintimate apparel sites for the most darling in boy short and thong styles.
