Our Continuing Obsession With Lace x

It's hard to believe it's been over 12 months since the Royal Wedding, you wouldn't think it would you, in that time hardly a week has gone by when we haven't being bombarded with pictures of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wearing designer, wearing high street, or even shopping in French Connection. Her style isn't to everyone's taste but she's certainly got people talking, and she's got the tills a clicking as members of the public have swarmed to buy items from her wardrobe including that Issa dress (my own personal want - I can dream on lol) , items from Zara and of course her nude tights. Perhaps though Catherine's biggest fashion legacy to date though was her wedding dress.

Sarah Burton, for Alexander McQueen's beautiful, yet classical dress, had lead to a huge resurgence in the use of lace. Once deemed just as for old ladies or weddings you can see lace on dresses, tops and even skirts in styles and prices to suit all ages and budgets. If I'm being honest I'm not a real fan of lace, all too often the high street variety is rough and scratchy and bares simply no comparison to the handmade Belgian or Cypriot varieties. I think I own one top with a lace insert and maybe a few bits with trimming but that's it. If it's not your thing though you can still embrace the trend with product packaging.

As you know I'm a huge fan of Batiste Dry Shampoo, this stuff is a real must have for me when I don't have the energy to wash my hair, it's great for removing food odours, refreshing roots, and for adding a bit of volume, so I was delighted yet disappointed in equal measure to receive an invitation to attend the launch of their latest fragrance in their collection. I was delighted that they were introducing a new fragrance but disappointed that I couldn't attend the event due to my continued ill health, never mind I was kindly sent a can of the new fragrance to try anyways, can you guess what the new fragrance is ?

Yes Lace of course, product comes in a pink can with almost baroque black lace print, which will look great on any dressing table. 

In my opinion the fragrances from Batiste are getting better and better and this is no exception, it has a beautiful soft, powdery floral fragrance, not overpowering but enough to disguise any odours. I have to say this has jumped straight into the top 3 of my favourite Batiste fragrances, with Blush and Cherry Blossom, none of these fragrances are too strong and they won't clash with your perfume, they are just soft and feminine. In over 30 years of production Batiste have never been ones to rest on their laurels, they are continuing to innovate and if Batiste Lace is an indicator of the direction their heading in, then here is to another 30 years. Batiste Lace currently only retails in the 200ml size and is priced at £2.99 - please, please can we have a mini in this one Batiste ;). Have you tried Batiste Lace yet?, If you have what did you think?Any questions as per usual leave me a comment x Thanks for reading xx
