Even when I was young, frills and lace were never my thing. I think it stems from the constant fear of not wanting to look like one of my Grandma's doilies. Lace back then was always super girly and that just wasn't my style when I was a little girl.

Fast forward to today's Victorian goth revival and suddenly lace doesn't have to always be so sweet. Powerful lace dresses have been all over the Fashion Week Fall 2016 Runways.

Two of my favorite dresses from last week's Oscars were lace. Honestly, no one wears this Victorian trend better than Rooney Mara.
