Lacy racy frilly bits are all over the runway, Spring & Summer 2016 Collections.  reversecommuter is obsessing huge for Dolce & Gabbana’s pajama party ad above.

Celine has dedicated it’s Spring ad campaign to a gorgeous, simple black and white slip dress and patent ankle boots.  Who couldn’t rock that outfit?  Who doesn’t love simple?

Celine’s entire Summer 2016 Collection is a veritable cornucopia of lingerie inspired deliciousness that delivers images of patios, cocktails and heat waves!

Not ready for a full frontal slip dress?  Baby steps people.  A camisole under a blazer with jeans or wide leg culottes during the day, then va-va-va-voom it up you little vixen for an evening look without the jacket.

Lace making too bold a statement?  Equipment has a streamlined slip dress that borrows from the tank dress.  Jean jacket, clutch and go!

Sexy Lingerie Partout en Paris!

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).

paris

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.

Skin is In

SKIN lingerie that is.  Especially when freezing cold blustery January days beg for staying in jammies!

Organic.  Peruvian cotton.  Oh, and OPRAH loves it – need I say more?

Fashion & Finance Friday!

What is better than waking up to a Friday morning?  HELLLLLOOOOOO Weekend!

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Challenge launched the final leg of it’s competition before the winner unveiling gala in November.  The competition is SUPER COOL this year with the 10 semifinalists each being assigned a city in the U.S. to design an outfit (including a donated makeup palette tailored for each city by main sponsor Maybelline).  The cities include:  Austin, San Francisco, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Portland, Nashville, Honolulu, and Miami.   All designers will need to BLOW the judges away – no easy feat considering the panel, shown here at the Bowery rooftop patio in NYC.

The CFDA is the organization where Alexander Wang, Jonathan Simkhai, Veronica Beard, Public School and many other designers received their groundbreaking introduction, funding and exposure – this is where American fashion truly incubates!  reversecommuter is psyched to see what the designers deliver…

New Zealand lingerie company Bendon has just switched from one “The Body” to the other “The Body”.  Supermodel Elle Macpherson, the first “The Body” has been replaced by Heidi Klum, also otherwise known as “The Body”.

A few years ago the two supermodels were on less than lovely terms as each attempted to own the nickname.  This shuffle in the lacy undergarment world will most likely not add any warmth to the relationship.

After a 25 year relationship with Elle Macpherson, Bendon at least maintains continuity with supermodel nicknames!

ps a ton of Elle Macpherson’s Intimate lingerie is on sale BIG TIME on the website!!!

Fill the champs flute, do a little lacy, frilly online shopping and ring in the weekend!

Skin is In!

Perhaps it’s the shorter days or the cooler weather…but all of a sudden reversecommuter is thinking jammies!

Unknown-2

You know, the kind that you can curl up in and watch the WORLD SERIES in…GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Specifically SKIN jammies.    Susan Beischel’s line is luxurious, priced gently, beyond comfy and a serious step up from yoga pants (don’t get me started!).  Click here for previous SKIN love.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go wait at the door for Brown Santa to arrive (aka the UPS man!!).

FYI throughout the posting, click the picture to go directly to that item.

Boudoirable

Comfy, sexy, fabulous.

SKIN is in…as long as you are in SKIN lingerie.  (click the blue phrase to go drool on their website).

Pieces so cute you almost need to share them with everyone (ahem, almost….).

Case in point, frilly shorts (click the picture to purchase directly)

SKIN Collection also offers pieces that can translate outside of the boudoir, which is really good news for us!

How about this top for a date night treat? (click the picture to go directly to the SKIN website)

Or for those evenings in front of a fireplace, catching up on guilty pleasure television (Hello BravoTV Housewives & fabulous Andy Cohen!!!) or curling up with a glass of wine and a fantastic book.

Summer Boobies 911

How’s that for a title?  🙂

As noted, I have a little love affair going on with Acne.  Their designs, materials and cuts are gorgeously clever and unique!  This is my newest acquisition.

The silk is quite sheer and the open slit back is a little bit of a challenge, especially regarding lingerie accompaniments.

Problem Solved!!!!  Top Hats!  No need for a pesky bra, just slap these nipple concealers on and off you go to a patio, a party, a dance, whatever, without worries, they stay in place without any petal outlines or straps.

Went to a charity dinner last night, with quite a few of my favorite friends.  One fab friend wore a bustier made entirely out of recycled ties!

Attention Charlie, all of your angels are waiting for your telephone call!
