Stop in the Name of Lace

Shame on me, I know. Here I am, supposed to be on the hunt for a pair of gloves to keep my dainty digits warm come winter, and I’m off on one of my tangents. Albeit, this one was not intentional. It is not my fault that the item in question seemingly sprung out of nowhere, and bit me on the nose, virtually begging to be swept up into my world of fashionable finesse; nor am I to blame for being completely incapable of resisting its flirty yet incredibly feminine aesthetic. Be honest, you would be in the same position as myself had you laid eyes on this beauty first. But I digress; it was I who spotted its lacy construction, I who became mesmerized with its spandex composition, and I who knew from the getgo that I had to have it in my possession. And I vow that I will; though I’m getting ahead of myself.

I suppose I should reveal what I am rambling on and on about – after all, I have a hunch that once you experience it’s brilliance you’ll be coveting it too. American Apparel’s Nylon Spandex Stretch Floral Lace Unitard.

Dolls, please cast aside your thoughts about uncomfortable, unflattering unitards of yesteryear; the Nylon Spandex Stretch Floral Lace Unitard is a decadent accoutrement that will assist you in channeling your inner feminine mystique and make you feel like a sultry feline on the prowl whenever you find yourself donning it – which I’m sure will be quite often. This is not to be compared to the leotards and unitards we were forced to dress in for dance classes as children; this is a garment in a class all its own.

Reminiscent of a body stocking, delicate black floral lace covers every last inch of its surface ending in a footless tight, and beginning with slim spaghetti straps; all of which hug every last curve of your body like a glove. It’s a form-fitting covering simply lying in wait to be tossed on under a colorful frock, or coupled with a risqué satin corset – so don’t even begin to say that you have nothing to wear it with. My only qualm is that it isn’t available in every color of the rainbow – I’d snatch them all up in a heartbeat!

Are you suffering from a case of lace lust, kittens?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to American Apparel for the pictures.

I always lust after lace. It's so beautiful and feminine. However, I don't think I could ever wear this lace unitard. We're just not a fashion match. =)

Hahahaha! I must be in the shopping mood or my cold is just getting to me because I thought the title was SHOP in the name of love. I thought, "Who wouldn't do that?"

I know this will keep you warm . . . if you cuddle with someone! LOL!

Nice post, fashionista! :)

I've never worn a unitard, but this lacey one is brilliant. I adore lace on everything.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

wreckedstellar said...

yess, love lace because it can add a touch of femininity to a 'harder' looking outfit!

Tights Lover said...

I am loving this unitard. I really may have to buy it!

Stephanie said...

Very sexy. :) It would be so cute under a skirt. :) Hope you have a great weekend Erika. :)

S.Elisabeth said...

It certainly looks nice, but I don't know... I'm in one piece bathing suits half the day for swimming and the thought of being in a one piece anything besides then turns me off... Though I won't say nay just yet, I do have to actually try it out first.

Emily said...

anything lace = love! Not only that, but it is so interesting :)

Damsels said...

this is very unique ... defintely not something everyone can pull off .. im interested in how you would wear it in an outfit
hope you get it

la petite fashionista said...

I love Lace & unitards! this would be so cute with a swingy skirt and slouchy tank top with all the lace peeking out <3

The Haute-Shopper said...

This looks gorgeous - I love lace! Although I'm not sure if I would get this because unitards just seem so impractical to me (i.e. bathroom breaks won't be easy). But AA does a lot of awesome pieces. Have a good weekend!

English Rose said...

i adore lace - but it's one of those textiles that not everyone can carry off - hope you have a lovely thanksgiving whatever you decide to do - glad I could be of service!

J. said...

Absolutely! I've loved everything "lacey" for a long, long time. And since there are so many lovely items with lace of all sorts on them in stores these days, it's only gotten worse lately...

(PS: You have a Blogaward to "pick up" at my blog)

Miss Caitlin S. said...
