Panty of the Day: Daphine

21 Feb

Oops, where did the day go? Here I am, on the tail-end of a long holiday weekend, and no panty-of-the-day post to be had!  Its been a busy & productive day.  Besides taking care of some chores around the house (and in the checkbook), I was fortunate enough today to find time for a relaxing bubble bath and get a massage from a dear friend who is gathering up practice hours for her Therapy license. I also fed my body delicious (and madly healthy) juice, a huge spinach salad, and chicken sauteed with rainbow chard. I’m sure you don’t give a hoot about what I ate, but its

Spring is such an exciting time in the lingerie world. All of the new collections are appearing on the scene, like so many rolls of fabric tumbling open, fluttering in the wind, all drama & sumptuousness! Make way, make way! There are new rompers & knickers for play!

Ayten Gasson’s new Spring collection is small but lovely, and quite true to their signature 1930’s gamine style with frosty new colors that are perfect for the fairer seasons.  Celadon greens, deep-fushia, midnight black, blush pink, and cream silks round out the collection of intriguing garments.  Perhaps more stunning is the lace work, which itself comes with an interesting and historical twist, being supplied by “one of the last remaining lace makers in Nottingham, Roger Watson, who supplied lace for both Diana Princess of Wales and Sarah Ferguson’s wedding dresses.”

Don’t these make you just want to lay in bed all day long, weaving flowers into crowns and reading Emily Bronte?

PS.  Don’t miss Ayten Gasson’s clearance sale for a chance to scoop up last season’s beautiful offerings.  I’ve been coveting the Liberty tap pant and matching bra.  Hmmmmm…..spring fling?

Until next time my dears!

Panty of the Day: Rita High Waist Knickers

19 Feb

The resurgence of high-waist knickers and panties makes me soooo happy. I’m not talking granny panties, but rather fashionable, edgy & downright sexy knickers with lace panels and smoothing properties.

Finding designers that are tapped into the hollywood glamour vibe sets my heart a-flame. Enter Fortnight Lingerie, based out of Toronto. The esty shop is full of lingerie that might seem basic at first glance, but quickly reveals well-crafted works of art.  The pieces are an interesting mix of satin, mesh and cotton blended together in unexpected ways.

On one hand, several pieces are almost androgynous and would be perfect for the gender neutral and butch alike. These french knickers have a boxer-short appeal that I think would make one hell-of-a-surprise gift to the butch in your life!

On the other hand, there are comfy-looking tank tops & underwear, and minimalist bras.  Then there are numbers like this:

See what I mean about a classic high waist panty with a front lace panel?  LOVE.

Some of my other favorites include a blue & ivory bra and panty set that makes me think of classic blonde actresses, lounging around in long satin robes. *There I go again with the robes!!*

The best part of all is that the lingerie is affordable, handmade, and unique.  You can also likely count on natural fabrics that have been chosen with compassion with thought put into fit & comfort. Trifecta!

Do hop over to the Fortnight Lingerie Etsy shop; you won’t regret it!

P.S. This chemise is simply sexy. I mean it. SEXY. I love open-back shirts & dresses. Vavoom!

Panty of the Day: French Knickers

3 Dec

Look at these adorable french knickers!

Black Polka Dot French Knickers

French Knickers by Sophisitikitten

Made of chiffon, they are lightweight and breezy, but offer great coverage. These frisky panties could be worn during the summer under a vintage romper or flirty skirt; they could also be layered over sturdy tights during the fall & winter months for added warmth.

Or, just wear them for a romp around the bedroom.

I ♥ french knickers!

Sadly these adorable polka-dot knickers from Sophistikitten are no longer available in her etsy shop. Perhaps she could be persuaded to whip up a pair or two on commission? They are tres chic!
