Lace fairy tale

And because finally "the sun just arrived on my street" to be more specific, on our sky, and I also hope that it will stay there, so that nothing will overshadow it, I chose a chic summer outfit. My outfit consists of a striped blouse, which became a classic, since Coco Chanel to our days, and a white lace pencil skirt  sewn by my dear seamstress whom I miss her a lot since I moved from the city where I grew up. The look is completed by my favorite bag which I find it very versatile as it can be worn both in an elegant and casual way.
The origin of the lace craft, is a mystery increased also by the legends that have blended over it during times. Although they reached a consensus regarding the origin of this art being agreed on Venice, there are still opinions such as the lace would actually have roots in Asia.
During the evolution of this craft were used various fabrics as silk, gold and silver (in some works of some artists) to the commune cotton or synthetic fibers. In the 16th century there was a rapid development in the field of lace, which were dominant in both fashion and interior decoration.
There are many types of lace, classified according to how they are made​​. This includes: needle lace, cutwork lace, bobbin lace, tape lace, knotted lace, crocheted lace, knitted lace, machine made lace and ​​chemical lace.
The crocheted lace leads my thoughts to my mother, I remember her fondly spending hours, days, weeks even months crocheting and sewing macramé and doilies being like in a tacit competition with neighbors or my aunts, exhibiting glorious in the end these masterpieces on the furniture shelves, on the tables and other objects around the house.
Hug you all!

Si pentru ca in sfarsit a venit si "soarele pe strada mea" mai exact pe cerul nostru si acolo sper sa ramana, astfel ca nimic sa nu-l umbreasca, am ales o tinuta chic de vara. Tinuta mea este formata dintr-o bluza cu dungi, devenita un classic de la Coco Chanel incoace, si o fusta creion din dantela alba cusuta de draga mea croitoreasa careia ii duc dorul de cand m-am mutat din orasul in care am crescut. Look-ul fiind definitivat de geanta mea preferata, care dupa parerea mea este una versatila putand fi purtata atat intr-o maniera eleganta cat si casul.
Provenienta mestesugului dantelei, este un mister intensificat pe de-o parte si de legendele care care s-au tesut de-a lungul timpului. Cu toate acestea s-a ajuns la un consens cu privire la originea acestei arte, convenindu-se asupra Venetiei, desi, mai exista inca pareri cum ca de fapt, dantela si-ar avea radacinile in Asia.
Pe parcursul evolutiei acestui mestesug s-au folosit diverse material de la in, matase, aur si argint (in unele lucrari ale unor artisti) pana la comunul bumbac sau chiar fibre sintetice. In secolul al XVI- lea a existat o dezvoltare rapida in domeniul dantelei, aceasta fiind dominanta atat in moda cat si in decoratiunile interioare.
Exista mai multe tipuri de dantela, acestea fiind clasificate in functie de modul in care sunt realizate. Aici se  includ: dantela  cu acul, dantela taiata, dantela cu mosorul, dantela cu banda, dantela  innodata, dantela crosetata, dantela tricotata, dantela facuta automat la masina si dantela realizata printr-un proces chimic.
Dantela crosetata ma duce cu gandul la mama, imi amintesc cu drag cum petrecea ore, zile, saptamani chiar luni crosetand macrame si cosand mileuri fiind parca intr-o competitie tacita cu vecinele sau cu matusile mele. Etaland la final aceste capodopere falnic pe rafturile mobilei, pe masute si alte obiecte de prin casa.
Va imbratisez cu drag!
