Lace Extenders for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Under a Blouse
Quote of the day: “You and I are essentially infinite choice makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.” Deepak Chopra
The idea of this lace extender came to me from another blogger, Cyndi Spivey (see her blog here). It was originally shown on the company’s website hanging out under a plaid shirt (like this)—so there came my idea to style it under a button up blouse. I added variety to the mix by pulling out three different prints for the three of us. I got a plaid, Nancy got a animal print and mom got stripes! I also tried to be more diverse by putting a cardigan over my blouse, having Nancy’s blouse go solo and putting a tank under mom’s belted blouse. You can see this same piece styled under sweaters (here).
50’s Outfit: Yes, I have a pair of distressed jeans, but when it’s cold I wear tights under them!

60’s Outfit: Since Nancy’s blouse is relatively long, you just get a glimpse of the extender from the side! It’s like it’s playing peek-a-boo!
