I need to come up with some kind of bolero to wear with my dress. I am extremely self concious about my arms to I would like the bolero to be 3/4 sleeves if possible. My dress is taffata and lace so I’m wondering if I could get away with a lace bolero. I overheat easily so the lighter, the better!
Suggestions? Pics would be great!

If you can find lace that will match exactly to the lace on your gown, I would go for the lace. If not, then I would have one made in the same taffeta that your gown is made of. In any case, because of the style of your gown, I would keep the bolero simple in style.

@UpstateCait: Whoops! Just saw that you want a 3/4 length sleeve. What about this one from DB?
This one is SO beautiful, but I don’t know how you feel about long sleeve.

From my experience (simply whacking a lace one on over my dress and falling in love) I would definitely go lace. It’s more sheer, and makes the bolero look less like a jacket and more like an extension of your dress, you know?
