Until recently I was a very practical girl when it comes to lingerie. As a girl with many tops & dresses, it seems like you need to have a bra a dress sometimes - every single cut, color & shape needs to be in your wardrobe.
Now at the age of twenty two I feel like I'm finally done with all that & it's an appropriate time for me to dip into actual lingerie. Hence the new topics, lingerie loves - which will feature any new lingerie acquisitions that I'm particularly fond of.
And I'm starting of with two of my favorite new pieces, possibly in my favorite color combination of all time, black & red. Yes, I'm aware that I might have overused the world favourite, but that just goes to show you how much I love them.
I'd been seeing these sheer lace bralets on various foreign websites (especially UK based ones like asos) for a while, but I didn't find anything like that here. Then, almost a year ago I saw this bralet (in a different color) at the KOOVS Press Day. Still, I procrastinated about getting one (french lace is too delicate, I told myself!) Finally I took the plunge last month & hit the order button & I'm so glad I did. It's surprisingly comfortable even when worn for long periods. There's also a matching pair of panties & a set available in the same pattern but different color (navy & hot pink) which is all on my list.
The babydoll from Enamor is part of their Russian Firebird collection, inspired by Russian Folklore and the majestic firebird the collection boasts of colors such as orange, red and black in luxurious fabrics such as satin with beautiful and delicate lace detailing. I love the vibrant red color & the delicate mesh panelling at the top, not to mention the floral lace. And while the collection has some sheerer numbers, I like that this one isn't too racy either. In fact, it looks just like the cami/slip dresses that have been so popular recently. You can shop the Russian Firebird collection here. Enamor actually has their second infusion of the season out, Chinese Orchid, an oriental inspired collection that features vibrant purples & teals, I think I need to get me something from that collection too.
And of course, I had to put on red lipstick to match my lovely new lingerie & pose awkwardly. Are you guys into lingerie? I love that labels like Lonely Lingerie (NZ) are promoting the idea of buying lingerie for yourself - don't underestimate how confident & sexy these things can make you feel, you don't need to be getting married to treat yourself to some lacy unmentionables can make you feel!
