Fave Finds: Amber’s Antique Lace Heirlooms

Who: Amber of Un Petit Fauve

What: Antique lace collar

Where: “My grandparents sent me a big box of antique lace that once belonged to my great-grandmother. The oldest lace pieces were Victorian, and the youngest pieces were from the 1920s.”

How Much: Free

When I Use It: “On dresses with moderately high necklines that need a little extra something.”

Shopping Tips: “Cherish family heirlooms by giving them new life! My grandparents were happy to see I was actually wearing these old collars that would have normally gone unused.”

    Very cool! I’ve been seeing similar collars in mainstream stores lately, but I much prefer this antique version that has family history to boot!

    Collars like that are always what I hope for when I go into antique stores! It’s much more special that it was from her family, though 🙂
