HEAD CHIC OF THE WEEK: THE LACE MANTILLA

Believe it or not all these mantillas were made from the same pattern; I simply bordered them with different laces.  The great thing about wearing a mantilla is versatility. Because this style lacks density, you can fold it over into a layer and tack it to the back of a bun. Or, you can literally drop it  (aka drop veil) atop your head, wearing it over the face or further back with or without a headpiece. If you wear it low on the forehead topped off with a head band it looks very Gatsbyesque. 

You can look at more ways to wear the ivory lace mantilla in my Etsy store

These are so feminine and you have shown just how versatile a mantilla can be. I have noticed that many brides seem to be opting for a small, simple headpiece but I personally still like the traditional veils. Thank you for your comment on my 70s fashion post. I appreciate your visits to my blog and value your opinion.
