Nowadays, there is a ton of lingerie on the market that draws subtle inspiration from kink culture, whether it’s strappy knickers or bras with attached collars. And while it’s awesome to see these styles trending, let’s not forget about the many incredible, independent designers creating lingerie that is more ouvert in its kinkspiration.
A while back, someone wrote in asking about where they could find double-strapped suspender belts. I know this is a style Agent Provocateur has done more than once, but at the time they had nothing (and currently still don’t), and at first it seemed like nowhere else did either.
My upcoming beach holiday (for my 30th in a couple of weeks, eek!) and this European heatwave we’re having have, naturally, got me thinking about swimwear again. I treated myself to a couple of sale pieces and then, because it’s fun to dream, I started researching what I would buy if money were no object.
What’s a suspender belt lover to do when the weather’s too hot for hosiery? Double garters! Once an old-fashioned thing that only brides still wore, the trend for strappy, elastic lingerie has brought leg garters back into style again.
If you’re considering your first ever boudoir photo shoot, one of your biggest questions is almost certainly “what should I wear?”. That’s really up to you, but I’m here to share some advice. Remember that boudoir shoots come in a huge range of aesthetics, from kitschy pin-up to raunchy glamour model to ‘just chilling in my jammies’.
For all my fellow fashionistas who are begrudgingly in need of a nude bra, I thought I’d round up a whole bunch of the prettiest. A lot of these feature lace or embroidery, but there are also a few chic options for those who need (or just prefer) a smooth, moulded cup.
New Year’s Eve is a great opportunity to bring out the glitziest items in your closet. From glitter to rhinestones to metallic colours (and more glitter!), I love seeing friends and celebrities alike ringing in the New Year wearing outfits that are sparkly and glamorous.
My final gift guide of the year is here, and it’s one for all of you who really want to treat someone (or yourself!) this year. The majority of the items are made from real silk, and some of the laces are breathtakingly beautiful. From comfy sleepwear to dramatic robes, there’s something here to suit most lifestyles.
With little more than a week left to go until Christmas, it’s time for my second annual gift guide. I love this price range, because it’s within reach for many people but also enough to find something that feels luxurious.
I know, I know, I said I was going to get my gift guides done nice and early this year, and here I am publishing the first one two weeks before Christmas Eve. But if you still have some present-shopping to do, then this post is for you.
