Lingerie Inspired Fashion: Dolce and Gabbana AW13/14


The Lingerie Inspired Fashion post we feature this week is by Dolce and Gabbana  AW13/14 collection. Inspired by the lavish gold mosaics from the Monreale Cathedral in Sicily, the collection has rich baroque references and the usual sophisticated lace that is a signature of D&G collections. That red lace is stunning and we're swooning over it! What's your favorite?

Oscars 2013 and Lingerie

Did you watch the Oscars last night? We did and love the winners and think they deserved the awards big time! The event this year was more relaxed and musical and seeing those beautiful dresses on the red carpet was the best part of all! Nicole Kidman was all glitz while Anne Hathaway chose a clean but elegant dress by Prada. We had fun selecting the lingerie that we thought of when seeing some of the dresses.

Beautiful Bottoms SS13 - Lingerie & Loungewear


The newest Beautiful Bottoms lingerie and loungewear collection is in this week! If you're not familiar with the brand, they make fabulous lightweight silk bra sets, robes and loungewear. They are primarily known for their slightly retro print pieces, but also make great lightweight basics for your every day wardrobe or even your next tropical vacation.

There's lots to love in this collection, but I'll start with the obvious - this Beautiful Bottoms Flamingo Playsuit is amazing. It's effortless looking, and the flamingo print is retro without feeling like you need to get out your best beehive hairdo. It's great loungewear, but would also make a gorgeous beach cover up.

I'm a huge fan of navy as an alternative to black as a wardrobe staple, so I'm happy to see Beautiful Bottoms adopting this philosophy as well. The Midnight collection has an embellished tunic, a robe, a tie front bra, a padded bra, and some cute ruched knickers. If you're looking for a great basic set in a dark color, this a fantastic option as the weather warms up. It also mixes and matches well with the Wave pieces from the new collection.

The Wave collection is centered around a 70's influenced print which is funky and definitely makes a statement! If you're looking for accent pieces, pick up the Wave Ruched Thong and Wave PaddedBra and combine it with a robe in a more sedate color. If you want to be seen, try the Wave Shirt Tunic. It's gorgeous and all silk, but also makes a statement with the bold pattern and sheer material.

The Tropic Collection from Beautiful Bottoms will appeal to those of you who love super feminine lingerie. The tropical print is beautiful, but really pops when combined with the white lace. The Tropic Chemise is the perfect way to indulge your girliest urges, while the Non-Padded Bra and Tropic Lace Knicker would be a great summer set.

The Beautiful Bottoms Palm Tunic and Playsuit are an elegant take on the vintage tiki look. This version of the tunic would make a great poolside cover up, while the Playsuit is the perfect vacation lounge piece.

It's hard to find sleepwear which is both sexy and comfortable, but this Beautiful Bottoms Aqua Camisole and Short is a great option. The silk makes it feel fantastic to sleep in, but it's got just enough sex appeal to work as a bedroom piece as well.

What's your favorite piece in this collection?

Lingerie Editorial: Ksenia Nazarenko Gets Bedroom Ready for Dominical Magazine


It has been a while since our last Lingerie Editorial post, the reality is that we haven't been seeing any lovely editorial worth to share lately, so it was refreshing to discover the work of Daniel Bartolome with Ksenia Nazarenko modeling beautiful lingerie pieces by some great designers such as AndrĂ©s Sarda, La Perla and Intimissimi. Decor aside, that plush terracota sofa above is gorgeous, it blended so well with that lingerie set!
