This was absolutely one of those love-at-first-sight impulse purchases, and I’m happy to say I don’t regret it. It ticks two of my biggest lingerie style boxes: unusual texture and vibrant green. It was incredibly budget-friendly too, at just $35 (about £26 or 31€).
Harlow & Fox is one of those brands I’ve lusted after endlessly, but always assumed I’d never actually own. The label is about as luxurious as lingerie can get, creating utterly indulgent pieces from silk and exquisite laces.
Solstice Intimates is an independent, American lingerie brand based in Arizona. Bright and whimsical, it brings deliciously retro patterns to contemporary lingerie styles. Thanks to their unique designs and their prominent use of velvet, I’ve been a fan of Solstice for a while.
An independent lingerie brand launched in February of 2016, Ellesmere Lingerie has since carved out a reputation for itself in the lingerie blogosphere for romantic designs with a contemporary twist.
