Valentine's Day Lace

It's almost Valentine's Day and many are inspired by the conversation hearts, chocolate, flowers, love. I have seen this technique done before and have this awesome pattern on a dress so I decided to make it happen.

This look is inspired by all the lacy lingerie that is tossed on the floor on Valentine's Day. I love this look. It took me a long time to create but well worth the outcome. It is a shame all I did was take it off after I took pictures.
