At first glance this is simply a classically gorgeous lacy bottom. Stunning shape, impeccably cut scalloped edging at the waist and along the bum for a superbly cheeky finish, a gorgeous palette. Perfect as is, no? But once you put it on you can begin to see the play of light and shadow, a movement in the lace, and it’s no illusion. It’s the effect of the cross-dyed, exclusive-to-Journelle, soft, stretch botanical lace. The finespun differences in saturation catch the light and capture the quiet shimmer within the sophisticated palettes’ different tones. Subtly lovely, indeed.
