Futuristic Metalics are changing outerwear.
The fact that it resembles the delorean silver car in Back to the Future is the perfect reason to profile it on Back to the Future Day!
They don’t really.
This classic cream colored knit sweater needs to be added to your closet.
Or with ripped jeans and rain boots.
Or on top of your favorite dress with a pair of ankle boots.
Or with leggings (as long as your caboose is covered) and a pair of slip on sneakers in leopard pony hair (yummmmm).
No, this is not a posting on a fashion blog with pictures of a woman who has had 3 children. #PHEW
It is a posting on a fashion blog about how summer doesn’t end until September 21, and the weather is all about bathing suits and not so much about suede and wool. So why not do a little bikini shopping to help soothe the sadness you are feeling over the kiddos going back to school today? tee hee
Bikini Lovers from Italy (seriously, could there be a better name?) is a GORGEOUS line of brilliant prints and bright fun happy colors sprinkled throughout a phenomenal bikini line of ruffles and butt floss (start doing those squats while reading this!).
Almamia from Columbia is a line that every woman should buy from.
reversecommuter spent Easter in Paris and as a result I have come to conclusion that French women love their lingerie. Like really love their lingerie. As I am quite sure the French men do as well ;) Maybe even like lingerie more than les patisseries (bakery).
It is truly everywhere in Paris. Walking about the Parisian streets one is suddenly in possession of a burning desire to buy MANY lacy, frilly pieces of lingerie in a great variety of colors and styles. A neutral t-shirt bra did not make the shopping list AT ALL!
Printemps is a gorgeous, huge, designer stocked department store that has dedicated an entire floor just to frilly bits. Beautiful, florals, bright hot pinks, seductive blacks, lacy, racy, frilly, sexy, sumptuous lingerie.
Aubade is one of reversecommuter’s favorite lingerie lines, and whenever I am in Europe I try to stock up due to better selection and price. Their trademark lace up design is trés coquette (very flirty).
La Perla is another crowd pleaser that held major real estate in the Printemps store. DROOLWORTHY lingerie.
La Perla’s Everyday Essentials is a new line, softer pricing and ridiculously soft cotton. reversecommuter has numerous pairs of the drawstring pants and tanks – makes for great post bubble bath hangout wear, comfy with a subtle side of sexy (and less than a pair of yoga pants).
There is also Princess Tam Tam, which has stand alone stores plus is in Printemps. Great selection and even better prices.
Sort of a sexier version of Victoria’s Secret, imagine that!
So here is a golden nugget of knowledge. Lingerie makes the outfit. It reminds you that you are STILL the sexy little vixen you were before becoming a mother, a chauffeur, a cook, a laundress and a nose wiper extraordinaire. So take a moment to tour the links littered throughout this post, and treat yourself (and the one you love) to a quick Parisian update to your wardrobe.
