Arsenic and old lace

Depending on your point of view, Aurélie Bidermann's golden lace cuff is either...

a) an homage to Queen Elizabeth I...because, if ever there was a woman who loved a lace ruff, it was Good Queen Bess.

b) a golden tribute to those homeowners who protect their tabletops and headrests with lace doilies...one of those ideas which is good in theory but quickly becomes disturbing...especially in the apartment of a single male.

And I'm also hoping it's c) something that (armed with a lace doily, gold paint, and some kind of stiffening agent) I could re-create.

    I love that - and you're right, good ol' Miss E the first would definitely have rocked a gold lace cuff.

    You might find one on etsy?
