Nights In White Satin

Last year, I blogged about lingerie and Valentines being linked together in the tackiest way. This year, I thought I’d share some pretty sets that I wouldn’t be too heart broken to recieve (HINT HINT)

First up, from Boux Avenue, are the pretty, vintage styling of bras that we’ve come to expect from them. This purple satin bra* (£24) (described as bandeau style on the website, but lets face it, above a D cup, and you can’t really get a bandeau bra) is in my favourite colour, so is quite near the top of my wish list. This lacy balconette bra* (£30) and “Victoriana” (I’m not sure where the Victorian part comes from) hot pink satin bra* (£26) are close behind though!

Next up is the new range from M&S created with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I love the colours and the rose printed fabric, and this rose print bra* (£22.50) is almost too pretty to even wear, never mind be hidden by clothes. A simpler style of bra is available in this brown colour*, a pretty pink* or a “nude” shade – all £22.50 for the bra.

Valentines isn’t just about pretty knickers, and this rose printed camisole* (£35) and matching French knickers* (£17.50) set was made for flitting around in.

Finally, from ASOS (I know, I wouldn’t have had them down for pretty pants either!), there’s actually a great collection of lacy underthings. This lace panelled corset* is £75 (and pretty gorgeous too) whilst this blue satin bra* is £38.

Sod it, I’ll just go and buy them myself.

HtCC: Matches Dresses

I feel cheated.

Y’see, last year, I had loads of reasons to wear a pretty dress or five. Parties, events, gatherings – there was a week in December when I could have worn spangles non stop and no one would have batted an eyelash.

This year, I had two work do’s (a party and a dinner, for which I dug out old dresses and ridiculous shoes for both) and of course the wonderful SWBXmas party (which I did wear a pair of shoes I had already, but bought a new dress from Primark)

Still, that hasn’t stopped me looking at the Matches sale and making a very hopeful wishlist of dresses I would like to find in my wardrobe, please and thanks.

Is there such a thing as a dress fairy?

The great thing about Etsy is that you can find some pretty unique pieces of jewellery that not only look good, but aren’t overly expensive. These little rings from amerrymishap are about £11 at current exchange rates, and are gorgeous worn on their own or in a big group like in the first photo. The pastel shades are so fresh, but if you prefer more neutral colours, you can pick up earrings and rings in golds, silvers, blacks and pearl colours.
