Lingerie as Outerwear: Tango in Tangerine


When Pantone announced that the color for 2012 would be Tangerine Tango, I have to admit, I was pretty nervous. Orange is notoriously difficult to match and a lot of people just aren’t fans. Which is a real shame because it’s such a luscious color and looks equally good in a white or brown based tone.

If we’re going to have a whole year devoted to Tangerine Tango, we may as well enjoy playing with it. I decided to double dip with both Sonata and Zinke for modesty, visual interest and to pick up the pattern of the Milly skirt. I toyed with the idea of a jacket or cover up, but I just couldn’t bring myself to cover up the back of the bodysuit and that beautiful silk satin bow.

The Tom Ford low heels have a delicate cut-out pattern and peep toe. They match up beautifully with Lelo’s silk blindfold, that I have decided would make an admirable hairband. The jewelry is black and gold and minimal, letting the sunburst of color from your lingerie sing out loud and clear.
 

1. Zinke Scout Reversible Bralet-Orange/Orchid: The bralet is optional, of course. If you aren’t concerned by the open weave of the lace bodysuit, then by all means don’t bother.


2. Kate Spade New York 12k Goldplated Scatter Necklace/Black: The circular gems of this Kate Spade necklace mimic the sweet little silk buttons of the lace bodysuit.


3. TOM FORD Low Heel Shoes: I love the mobility of the low heel as well as the sexy cutouts of the leather. The peeptoe is just that much sweeter and almost begs for a reverse french pedicure with tangerine tips.


4. MILLYIvory Perfect Pleated Date Skirt: The femininity of the knee length pleats partners up with thebody conscious cut of the Sonata bodysuit to give an almost retro feel to this elegant outfit.

5. Double Wrap Coin Bracelet Black Suede: The outfit was beginning to feel a little too syrupy sweet, so I needed something a little more substantial to balance out all of the delicate pieces. The coiled leather of this bracelet and the solid metal coin adds that extra bit of weight to keep the lingerie as outerwear grounded.

6. Acne Ralston mini-suitcase bag: I wanted to find a bag that had both the black and the brown accents of the outfit but what luck finding a design with so much character and style.


7. Cook M*A*C Tendertone Lip Balm: A little swipe of this stunning tangerine gloss across your lips will have you purring, which is handy because the color is actually called Purring.


8. Danae Lace Bodysuit by Sonata Lingerie: The front of this bodysuit is gorgeous, but I’m really enthralled by the back. The deep V with the scalloped lace edging and that stunning silk bow frame the shoulder blades so nicely.

9. Lelo Intima Silk Blindfold in Black: Okay, now I do realize this is meant to be a blindfold but if you’re going to wear your lingerie out and about, you may as well bring your boudoir accessories
along for a stroll too!


See? Tangerine is easy to work into your life and who doesn’t need a sunny burst of color with all of these April showers?

Cheers,

Sonata Lingerie: Belle Epoque Collection


We're all excited this week because the perennially popular Sonata Lingerie's newest collection is in! Belle Epoque combines lush jewel tones with ethereal pastels, and features all of the classic Sonata silhouettes and detailing that everyone loves.

The Rosa series is made out of delicate lace the color of mulled wine, and has lots of pieces to mix and match. The Rosa Lace Short Robe is the classic Sonata sheer robe with a giant ribbon tie. The sheer lace combined with the giant sleeves gives it a dramatic flair. You can go ahead and match it with the Rosa Soft Cup Bra or the Rosa Balconette Bra if you don't want to wear something fully sheer. The Rosa Silk & Lace G-String and the Rosa Silk & Lace Knicker both pair beautifully with either bra, depending on how much coverage you want. The cage-like detailing on the Silk & Lace Knicker is one of my favorite looks that Sonata Lingerie makes.

The Ravena series features a Silk Chiffon Babydoll instead of a robe, and is a lush take on basic black. Each piece is studded with red crystals that catch the light. This is especially prominent on the Balconette bra. The Silk Chiffon Babydoll would be a great layering piece as part of an underwear as outerwear look.

If I had to pick one standout piece from this collection, it would be the Danae Lace Bodysuit. Tangerine is the Pantone color of the year and this bodysuit is perfect as outerwear. I own one of Sonata's bodysuits and wear it all the time for all sorts of occasions.

The Opaline series is made out of cornflower blue sheer lace, and has all of the same pieces as the Rosa series. I particularly love the way the lace and the colors make even the Opaline Thong look supremely elegant. This range makes a gorgeous option for the Bride's "something blue" piece under the gown or for her wedding night. 

The Adelle Silk Chiffon Babydoll and Silk Knicker make a classic and elegant set. I love the bow in the back of the knicker and the bows on the shoulder of the baby doll. They're so feminine and flirty.

Which pieces are you planning to pick up?

Seaworthy Blues

Happy Friday Everyone! With summer just a few short weeks away, I am constantly day dreaming of sandy white beaches and sounds of the ocean. Luckily, being located in Florida definitely has its perks and I’m just a short trip from the coast. The past few days I’ve been eyeing so many beautiful blue lingerie pieces and Bella Bella Boutique just so happens to have an amazing collection - I had to share. I think these pieces are absolutely seaworthy and just perfect for long summer weekends on coast.


Summer is all about comfort. Drapey loungewear, soft bra cups and sheer fabrics are calling my name.

1 // Fair Verona Bellini Romper – A baby blue romper with a hoodie is the ultimate loungewear. I think this would be perfect for a beach weekend.

2 // Beautiful Bottoms Kingfisher Front Tie Bra and Skirted Thong Set – this brand is really doing it for me lately.  Its bright, vibrant blues remind me of summer.

3 // Beautiful Bottoms Kingfisher Silk Playsuit – This is probably my favorite pick of the bunch. Again, the blue is so bright and I actually love this has a bathing suit cover up option.

4 // Zinke Dashboard Babydoll & Ruched Panty Set in Lake – This blue hued babydoll is definitely what I want to be lounging in during those rainy beach days.

5 // La Lilouche Anouk Starlight Blue Silk Chiffon Playsuit – This deep navy one piece is sophisticated, feminine and reminds me of the dark blue sea, no? It’s love.

6 // La Lilouche Jolene Peacock Green Silk Frill Bralette – Even though this is actually a green color, it reminds of me of the exact color the ocean turns down in the islands. So fun, flirty and the ruffled details are to die for.


Are you craving summer weather and beach days as much as I am? Which look is your favorite?

Xoxo,

Lingerie as Outerwear: Neon Heatwave


The freaky weather continues and now we’re facing bizarro heatwaves in the middle of April. Rather than engage in discussions on climate theory or whether Whoopie Goldberg lip synched the better version of the song Heatwave, I’d much rather plan out an on-trend neon outfit to help us get through the swelter.

A heatwave seems like the perfect time to haul out the lingerie and parade it around in the blisteringly hot sunshine. Priscilla Jade has created some beautiful silk bras in red and teal and I’ve been looking for an excuse to show off her craftsmanship. A hot day calls for minimal coverage, so some highbeam teal shorts from alice + olivia and a barely there pair of Tory Burch sandals will keep your lower half comfortable.

I’m really loving the Beautiful Bottoms set, with its delicate straps, slithers of sequins and light as air silk fabric. The vibrant color of the bra will shine through the transparent silk and pick up the soft blues in your jewelry and the fun scarlet of your polka dot bag.

If the temperature climbs too high, you can nestle into a sweet cafe patio, pop on your Prada shades, apply some of the Kama Sutra Cool Mint Cream to your pulse points and sip some iced mocha lattes. After all, it’s not every year, you can get heatstroke in April. We may as well enjoy it!

1. Beautiful Bottoms Swan Camisole and Skirted Thong Set: I know I only mentioned the top, but the frilled thong is absolutely stunning too.

2. Cassia Sandal: The Tory Burch medallion is worked into the minimalist straps perfectly, making these the go to shoes for scintillatingly hot days.

3. Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace: I love the way the turquoise gems appear to float in formation on the collarbone.

4. Brahmin Vivian Polka Dot Dome: This is a pretty fun little domed bag. Whether you carry a portable battery powered fan or a few extra water bottles, it’ll look good on all your errands.

5. Kama Sutra Body Souffle Creams: Cool Mint Cream sounds good enough to eat and if it’s gracing your pulse points, it may just encourage a few extra kisses.

6. alice + olivia Aqua Cady Shorts: Not too long, not too short, these shorts are just right! The color picks up the teal in the bra and the jewels without blinding your admirers.

7. Prada 'Baroque' Round Sunglasses: I couldn’t resist these glasses. It wasn’t even their crazy round frames that pulled me in. It’s the fabulous swirl details on the armature. These are gorgeous whether shielding your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays or keeping your hair out of your coffee.

8. Michael Kors Drop Slice Turquoise Earrings: When your lingerie is on display, you really don’t need to go overboard on the jewels.

9. Priscilla Jade Vania Bra: Red, teal and white silk make for a decadently colorful bra choice that’s perfectly in keeping with the bright neon color trend.
Whatever you wear, remember to rehydrate regularly and stay cool!

Summer Loungewear

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Everyone is starting to stock up on their spring and summer lingerie, but what really excites me about the warmer months is how easy it is to practically live in loungewear. The right loungewear pieces can be elegant, practical, and even work with a pair of jeans and sandals when you need to run to the store to pick up some milk.  Lots of people buy tons of colorful lingerie sets around this time of year but keep wearing their dark colored loungewear! Today I've put together some of my favorite loungewear pieces from Bella Bella Boutique so you can freshen up your loungewear collection while you restock your lingerie.

Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie makes pieces which are both funky and sweet, and seem built for long summer days at home. Whether you're sleeping in late or making your morning coffee, this Knee Length Cami Dress is the perfect loungewear choice. It's made out of light as a feather cotton voile from India, and is a great piece to wear to beat the heat on summer mornings.

If your loungewear preferences tends towards silk, try this V Back Tunic Dress in Silk Road Sweet print. This tunic is a little dressier, and would look great with leggings or a pair of your favorite jeans thrown on underneath. The colors are bright and feminine, and the open sleeves give this piece a touch of drama.

If you're into feminine yet funky pieces, this Beautiful Bottoms Peacock Silk Playsuit is the perfect addition to your loungewear drawer. It's light and airy, and the print is completely unique. The low drop back is both sexy and comfortable, and the silk will feel fantastic on your skin. This is the perfect piece to spend your Saturday in while you sip iced tea and read your favorite book.

This SAM Marika Vera Silk Chiffon Long Gown is sort of the equivalent of formal loungewear, but I think it's one of the best pieces I've seen in the past year anywhere. You don't see many designers creating elegant silk pieces with leather detailing, but in this case it really works. If you want a robe to make an entrance in then this is for you. The Pearl color is very bridal, but the Salmon version would work beautifully for the spring and the summer.

Stretch silk is my new lingerie fabric of choice. It's incredibly comfortable, feels soft and cool against your skin, and it's also easy to clean. If you're looking for a more elegant version of shorts and a tank top, the MC Lounge Stretch Silk Yoga Shorts and Silk Racer Back Camisole is a nice step up. The camisole would also work well with jeans or a skirt. The stretch silk ties and racer back details on this set really make it something special.

Last, but certainly not least, I believe that every woman needs one really comfortable oversized t-shirt. If you're ready to upgrade from the one you're borrowing from the man in your life, this Naked Princess Lovely Ever After Soft Tee is what you should get. Their micro modal is nothing short of baby soft, and their pieces look good on any body type. While classic white is always nice, their charcoal shade from this season has a subtle depth that I find particularly appealing. Pair it with the Naked Princess Lovely Ever After Panty Breeze Boyshort and gain the best pair of all purpose panties you've ever owned. I own several of their pieces, and they get worn weekly.

Lingerie as Outerwear: Perfectly Pastel


I was at an Easter parade the other day and couldn’t help but notice how many people were jumping
on the Spring pastel trend. I also noticed how many people resembledgiant easter eggs. So, I thought it might be a good time to explore the wild and wonderful world of pastels for adults.

The blue playsuit from Beautiful Bottoms was the perfect starting point for this little adventure. But I was a little concerned that the top might be a wee bit bare for a family event like a parade. Luckily I came up with the brilliant plan of doubling up on the silk playsuits and adding in Bristols 6 nipple covers for a little extra insurance in the modesty department. They’re made from such light material that there will be virtually no bulk to contend with under that stunning Prada skirt.

Now to avoid resembling my cotton-candy-colored neighbors at the parade, it was important to not
over do it with the pastels.The gentle shell pink of the Anne Klein Jacket and the periwinkle of the romper is moderated by the deeper tones of the skirt and shoes. The medium blue of the Rebecca
Minkoff purse and the strong gold accents in your Coach and BCBG jewelry pull it all together.

1. Beautiful Bottoms Blue Bird Silk Playsuit: Made from soft, barely there silk, you may need to keep reminding yourself that you’re even wearing it.

2. Anne Klein Suit Petites Boucle Jacket Dress: It’s still a little gusty this time of year and your light as air lingerie worn as outerwear isn’t going to keep the chill out. Obviously you won’t need the matching dress with our lovely playsuit and skirt all ready to go.

3. LUIS ONOFRE kitten heel sandal: Every piece in this outfit is delicately feminine and these teeny tiny heels are no exception. They’re just a little step up from a flat, but a little step is all you need.

4. BCBG Layered Snake-Chain Necklace: Multiple chains of gold draping around your collar bones,
spilling over onto your chest just above that stunning playsuit.

5. Prada Organza Button Detail Aline Skirt: A silk A-line skirt in a rich aubergine shade to really set off the periwinkle of the Beautiful Bottoms Playsuit.

6. Crislu Ring, 18k Gold Candy Couture Ring: Just a little something to shine on your finger tips
and keep the Coach ring company.

7. Beautiful Bottoms Taupe Silk Playsuit: You could go with just one of these playsuits, but you’ll have better opacity if you layer them. Luckily doubling up won’t add any bulk at all, so the smooth lines of your skirt won’t be interrupted.

8. Coach Flower Domed Ring: This is a pretty playful choice and it’s rather nice to be able to carry
an entire bouquet on your finger.

9. Rebecca Minkoff Luscious Hobo: With a structured skirt, jacket and heels, the blousey style of the
lingerie needed something a little more free form like this bag to match. Plus, who could resist the color?

10. Bristols 6 Nippies Skin - Light: These are just incase you still need a little extra modesty to go along with your double dip on the lingerie front.

Voila, trendy but not tending towards “My Little Pony" colored!

I love everything from the chosen lingerie, to the hair, makeup and curves – it’s simply breathtaking to see women of all shapes and sizes show such remarkable confidence. So today I’m talking about one of my favorite things, which is accessorizing your boudoir experience by adding fun little details to your lingerie wardrobe.

1 // Bijoux Indiscrets Burlesque Sequin Pasties – these will add the perfect touch of sparkle to any lingerie set.

2 // Lelo Tantra Feather Teaser – you can’t go wrong with adding a feather tickler to tease any one viewing your boudoir photos.

3 // Luz de la Riva SIMONE Lubricant – setting up some props? Adding massage oils around your boudoir set will create the ultimate intimate setting.

4 // Bijoux Indiscrets Coffret Bliss Bliss Kit – a massage kit that tickles, traces and glides it way through a sensual experience. I love the idea of posing with these props.

5 // Rialto Brazelle Silk Strap, Clip & Bra Set – I love this new jewelry bra accessory designed to replace unsightly visible bra straps. It instantly dresses up your lingerie wardrobe.

Lingerie as Outerwear: A Night At The Symphony



One of the things I love about going out to the symphony is that all the attendees do their own thing. Some people show up in ball gowns, some people are in jeans and a tshirt and still others wear whatever they happened to be walking down the street in. Everyone’s welcome and they all bond through their enjoyment of the music.

I usually wear moderately fancy things, but I would love to spruce it up a bit more. I would take a Velda Lauder corset, in a pearlescent beige, and pair it up with a structured tweed suit from Moss & Spy. When you’re wearing your lingerie as outerwear and with a super sweet pair of La Lilouche ruffled panties underneath, then your shoes had better be just as sexy and cool. the natural choice is a slamming pair of Louboutins.

If my top is a corset, then my jewelry is going to have to work pretty hard to keep up. I’m thinking
pearls, luxe and bling. But it wouldn’t be my outfit if I played it completely safe now would it? Nope, and that’s why it needed another pop of color from a sweet red velvet clutch from
Miu Miu.

Decked out like this I would thoroughly enjoy an evening of Yo Yo Ma!

1. Velda Lauder Nude Satin Overbust Corset: The black piping will outline your every curve in this corset, while the sweetheart bodice provides an excellent frame for those black pearls.

2. Tom Binns Large Pearl Necklace in Black: A Multi-layered strand of pearls that will drape gently just above the bust line of your glossy satin corset. They’ll be visible with the jacket done up and have even more of an impact when it’s open.

3. MÉLANIE GEORGACOPOULOS Earrings: Let the corset bring all the drama. These pearl earrings match the beautiful nude silk and echo it’s sheen.

4. La Lilouche Colette Lace & Silk Suspender High Waist Brief:It would be easy to wear any old undies and  trust to the corset to be the wow factor, but I think it’s infinitely more fun to create a burlesque feel with these mesh and ruffles, high waisted panties!

5. Moss & Spy Black Cream Tweed Stripe Suiting Skirt: The tweed and the below the knee hemline of this skirt verge on the fuddy-duddy side until you notice the unrestrained side pleats and the high and defined waist. This skirt works with or without the jacket to give you just right amount of coverage to pull off a corset at the symphony.

6. Manhattan Pearls Pearl and Black Diamond Ring: It’s pretty cool how the ring matches both a silk satin corset and a grey tweed suit isn’t it?

7. Christian Louboutin: nude patent leather 'Delico 100' d'Orsay pumps: The sexy shape and curves of these open toe, nude pumps is almost a mirror image of the silhouette of the corset.

8. Miu Miu Velvet Clutch: An evening out calls for a zinger of a purse. A bright pop of color and some super soft, plush velvet give a gentle hint that just maybe there’s a little more to this outfit, than a well cut tweed suit.

9. Heaven's Alchemy Athens Perfume Crystal Set: The gentle floral notes of this perfume float on the lower tones of the amber and sandalwood. Remember to add a dab to each pulse point, so that when your heart beats in time with the music, you get a multi-sensory response to the orchestral variations of the symphony!

10. Moss & Spy Black Cream Tweed Stripe Suiting Jacket Coat: The gorgeous flaring of the hemline and amazing tailoring of this suit jacket is too cool to be relegated to a mere coat. It provides the perfect backdrop to your lingerie when it’s worn open.

Care to join me for a glamorous evening out?
