Amazing Lace with the 5 Over 50's

Welcome to another edition of our 5 Over 50 monthly style challenge. Jacqui has chosen the topic of Amazing Lace this month. Sadly the group line-up has changed with Ashley stepping down due to other commitments, but the upside is that this has allowed us to usher Hilda into our happy crew. So, without further ado, let's take a peek at my offering...

This skirt was a brand new find in a charity shop during one of my shopping sprees earlier this year. The swing ticket stated £25 but was marked down to £3.99 - ker-ching! I've married it up with this floral lacy top which is so old I can't recall where or when I bought it.

Here's Jacqui of Mummabstylish blog and wow, doesn't she rock this lace dress? Clearly all dressed up with somewhere rather special to go I'd say. You really can't go wrong with black lace can you? The deep v neck and simple necklace emphasise Jacqui's fabulous figure and let's not forget to mention those hot stilettos.

Our host Gail from Is This Mutton is looking wonderfully theatrical in her black lace skirt. Her graveside backdrop looks like an episode from a period drama. I love it, all of it - the setting, lighting and of course the outfit, right down to that saucy bow! I can't wait to read about Gail's inspiration for this stunning ensemble.

Hilda is stepping out in style in her LK Bennett dress with lace sleeve detail. Did I hear that a certain young royal may have copied you with this Hilda? The addition of strappy courts and dark glasses elevates this to celebrity status! See Hilda's blog, Over the Hilda.

Laurie from Vanity and Me always delivers elegance and style, and this month's offering is no different. Chic evening wear is how she's presented her Amazing Lace top, in fact I'd suggest this may be a lace body by the sleek fit. A white Tux and grey tux trousers complete this fabulous ensemble.

This was the perfect opportunity for me to bring out all of my rose gold accessories.

Outfit details - skirt: Zuppe, top: no brand, sandals: Miss KG, heart pendant: Vanilla, rings: pre-loved, watch: Micheal Kors, bangle: Kate Spade New York.

But this isn't quite everything from me. I also styled the skirt with another lace top which only clouded the issue. It's too similar to be featured later on the blog, so here you go - 2 for 1 today! I'm really undecided as to which is the better of these two - which do you prefer?

Outfit details - skirt: Zuppe, top: F&F, shoes: London Rebel, clutch: Primark, perspex ring: gift, bangle: Almost Perfect, brown ring: TK Maxx, sunglasses: Quay Australia.

Do take a moment to visit my blogging friends to see their posts with the stories behind the clothes. Anyway, I think you'll agree that it has been Amazing Lace from all of us. See you soon!
