So I tried out the whole exposed lace idea and I would save this particular outfit for the ambiance of evenings. For your daily 9 to 5, I'd try a high waisted skirt with some volume and maybe a cropped vest. I do love love love lace though, especially when worn as a top layer.

Note on the bracelets: they're stretchy & you're supposed to hang beads from them but they looked so good bare that I just let them be.
