Alternative Apparel – Fashion Forward and Affordable

If you haven’t heard the buzz on the streets about Alternative Apparel, then you are missing out! Their line of fun tees, tanks, dresses and more are very affordable, even for poor college students and teens living on their allowances. But the soft textures are a fan of all moms who need a little bit of on the spot pampering.

This white burnout top from Alternative Apparel is the ideal piece for any wardrobe and this worn/vintagey feel of the shirt will sooth even the roughest of summer sunburns. It looks great alone, or under a nice jacket for fall.

Another one of our newest arrivals from Alternative Apparel is this great Petecia Asymmetrical Burnout Tank (perfect for running errands around town!). From the website: “Women’s regular-fit burnout asymmetrical tank with extended sides and two side pockets near bottom hem. Burnout fabric undergoes an extensive process to reveal years of authentic wearing and a vintage-soft, worn-in feel, so no two items are exactly the same.”

Available in black or purple, you can’t go wrong with it!

We have a wide variety of tanks and tops from Alternative Apparel, so stop by Denim and Lace today to pick up yours!

Summer Fashion Essentials!

Now that it’s officially June, we are allowed to spend our days lying next to the pool (well, we can day dream about it from our desks). But just because the weather is sweltering doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t, at the very least, look decent. There will be plenty of camping trips in the future when you can pull off the sweaty unclean look, don’t save it for the supermarket.

So we’re going to run through a few basic necessities for summer that will insure you look fabulous!

1. A great basic tee. This white burnout top from Alternative Apparel is the ideal piece for any wardrobe and this worn/vintagey feel of the shirt will sooth even the roughest of summer sunburns.

2. Stylish sandals. These UGG Cypris Pale Gold Sandals ($130) are great for a night out on the town, running errands, walking along the beach (hand in hand with your honey), whatever the summer brings. Comfortable and stylish, you really can’t go wrong with these.

3. Great maxi dress. Maxi dresses, like this one from Green Dragon (Purple Maxi Dress, $175), are ideal for summer. They are easy to just throw on and in 5 minutes, you’re out the door! With a lightweight material, maxi dresses will help to keep you cool during the humid summer months.

4. Tote bag. Tote bags are definitely a summer essential. You can pack so much stuff into these Scout bags and the fact that they wiped clean will keep them looking fresh, even after being buried in the sand. We carry a whole range of these stylish bags, from cosmetic cases to storage bins. Everyone who has tried them say that these are a definite buy!

What are your must-haves for summer?
