Field Trip :Exquisite bridal laces and beaded fabrics at Mood Los Angeles

Did you know that many of Mood’s most beautiful fabrics in LA aren’t listed on their website? I couldn’t find much online, so I decided to take a little trip there to check out the lace selection for a friend last weekend when I was in town. And I thought some of you readers might be interested too!

Below are some of my favorites. I can guarantee they are special pieces you won’t find in your ordinary fabric store.

I’d like to thank Mood for letting me photograph some of their most luscious and luxurious lace and embellished fabrics. No, it’s not cheap, but sometimes only a really special fabric will do. lace and beaded fabrics Mood Los angeles

Exquisitely beaded Alencon lace trim. This type of fringing is a sign of quality lace. I’m not sure where the lace was from, as I didn’t notice a country of origin on the tags of any of these laces. But I’d say it’s French. 12 inches wide, $80 per yard.

    What gorgeous lace! There’s a shop here in Atlanta that sells beautiful embroidered silk (for home decor) that I will go look at occasionally, just because it is so beautiful. Similar price range, from $150 on up per yard. It is wonderful to know that there people are still producing, and using, lovely things like this. Thank you for sharing these.

    Oh, wow, Justine! I am just speechless at this fabric! I have no idea where I would go in the state of Alabama to find a fabric store like this. (Maybe Birmingham or Nashville, TN??)

    Anyway, it’s so nice to “meet” you. I love reading up on new people all over the U.S. I found your site from visiting Mod Podge Rocks via Pinterest. I’m definitely pinning your site, and keep up the good work!

    Warmest regards,
    Stephanie (from north Alabama)

    Wow! These are so exquisitely detailed and . . . beautiful! 🙂 I just think of the forethought and detailing involved in creating these gorgeous embellishments and designs. That’s so neat you got to go there in person to see these! I just went to the Mood website to learn more about what they’re about.

    Hello Justine. If I would like to purchase one of the lace pieces above, how would I go about that? Do you sale them or would I have to try an order it from Mood?

    Thank you for your assistance.
