A Hook-up To A New Summer Trend--Crochet!

When I used to think of crochet, I thought of granny squares on an afghan or hot pads or even table coverings.  Not the case anymore!  I have many crafty friends and acquaintances who have been making cute hair clips with crocheted designs, cute little baby shoes and great winter hats!  They are very esthetically appealing to me!  Now, in time for summer the fashion world has jumped on board the crochet train and look at all of the great items you can get!  
   This is a beige tunic that would be perfect with tights by Matthew Williamson, a designer from England who has really embraced the crocheted look and made it his own!
Here is an example of a crocheted shift dress, which you will hear much more of, especially around the office!  I found this one at TopShop
What about this Vanessa Bruno dress?  Unfortunately, it is out of stock at Style Shop at $690, but maybe you can get it somewhere else!  Target maybe?  (tongue in cheek)  I love it, though,  because the looping is so loose!  It is so casual yet beautiful!


I thought these shoes had just the right amount of detail 
and embellishment in the form of crochet!  I found these 
at Polyvore.com for $62!
