Until recently, lace was a fabric that most of us confined to the depths of our underwear draws. But this is no longer the case! This Autumn/Winter (2008-09) designers including Prada, Luella and Alexander McQueen are showing amazing lace pieces including, pencil skirts, dresses blouses and jumpsuits.
Basically this is a BIG trend for Autumn/Winter and we at Beyond Retro, being the trend led company that we are, are no strangers to the fast growing demand for everything that is lacey!

These two FAB Beyond Retro lace dresses are very similar to some of the designer pieces available at the moment. They are of course, a fraction of designer prices and no matter what your budget, we have something for you.
Of course for those of you who aren't yet convinced that lace is the fabric for you, we also have lots of items that simply have lace details, like this gorgeous 1940's crepe dress. The beautiful lace rose hangs elegantly over one shoulder and backed by cream fabric, really stands out against the black.

Beyond Retro vintage lace dress £60, vintage lace dress £75
Both of these fantastic dresses are from our vintage section. Red lace is such a key piece this season. Vogue recently hailed Tomato Red as another BIG trend to look out for so it's a great buy, with two trends for the price of one! The second piece here is a similar colour to the dress shown above by Prada. This item also has the layered ruffle look which is another great style.
At Beyond Retro we are getting more and more lace dresses in every week but the really great examples don't sit around for long. With Autumn getting nearer every day and the party season rapidly approaching this is a great time to get an amazing party dress and beat the Christmas rush.
And don't forget, we put out new stock EVERY day!! See you soon...
