A well-known Ruchette, Lacy Rose continues to amaze us with her unique personal style and everything from her adorable cats to her cooking adventures. Lacy's blog provides readers with a genuine look into her day to day life, love, and musings through her authentic voice. Lacy's love of travel is a staple on her blog where she often channels places she has visited or inspiration from places she longs to visit. Often found in a feminine skirt and pretty accessories, we love seeing this gal cook her way through Julia Child's cookbook and embark on many adventures!
Describe your style in 5 words!
Parisian, bohemian, feminine, romantic, and globetrotter.
You have a beautiful collection of vintage clothing. What styles usually catch your eye when vintage shopping?
Thank you! When I shop for vintage clothing I am constantly searching for unique and beautifully crafted pieces. I love finding clothing with embroidery, tapestry, lace, or floral prints. I always like to think what the person may have been like that had the article of clothing originally. Buying vintage is a lot of fun and a great way to keep that item alive.
You often use Julia Child's cookbook in your kitchen. How has Julia Child influenced you and your cooking?
I absolutely love Julia Child! The funny thing is I never knew I was a good cook or baker until I baked cupcakes for a friend's birthday 5 years ago or so. Shortly after that I really started to gain a huge interest in french baking. I am so in love with the art and beauty behind french baking and cooking. My mom is the one who actually introduced me to Julia Child and bought me her cookbook. Julia has influenced my cooking and myself because she does everything out of love. She loved food and really took her passion and ran with it. With everything I do in life and with my blog, I try to do only what I love. You should truly enjoy what you do!
In what ways does your style reflect your personality?
I love beautiful pieces, this relates to my personality because I always try to see the beauty in everything and really take in every moment I can. I try to capture beauty through the way I dress, bake, conduct my blog, treat others, and how I go through life. I have my mom to thank for teaching me this way of life, without her even knowing she was giving a lesson. She is a huge inspiration in my life.
What is your go-to outfit for a casual day?
Since it is warm, my go-to outfit for a casual day would consist of cuffed denim shorts, a short sleeved peasant top, my favorite leather sandals, my hair back in a braid, and oversized sunnies. Of course I would accessorize with my favorite animal bauble necklace and bracelet.
Are there any trends that you're really loving right now?
Right now I am obsessing over embroidery and lovely global prints. These are literally my ideal details and prints for summer! It just makes me want to pack my bags and travel somewhere far away and exotic.
Now that the days are getting warmer, what are you looking forward to wearing this summer?
Oh, it was such a long winter, wasn't it? I try to soak up every season, but I have to admit that I am so glad that the days are finally warm and getting even warmer. This summer I look forward to wearing maxi dresses, strappy leather sandals, floppy hats, and oversized statement necklaces and bracelets.
Rapid Fire Questions:
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate!
Cats or Dogs? I love all animals, but since I have two kitties, Squirrel & Wally, I will go with cats.
Heels or Flats? This is a hard one. I really love both, but right now for summer I am channeling flats! I can't get enough of leather sandals, espadrilles, huaraches, and d'orsays.
Comedy or Horror? Horror
Maxi Dresses or Midi Skirts? Maxi dresses
Keys, phone, wallet and.... Lipstick!
Last, but not least, what do you love most about being a Ruchette?
Everything! I love that Ruche caters to many different styles but done so through pretty clothing. I love browsing the gorgeous lookbooks, new arrivals, and inspiration worn by other Ruchettes. Ruche is such an inspiring and positive brand, which I am so happy to be a part of. Thanks for choosing me as your June Ruchette of the month!
