Ayten Gasson’s Penny Delights SS12

25 Feb

Ayten Gasson’s new Spring/Summer 2012 collection of lingerie and nightwear is just divine. It’s full of lovely silk georgette, organic silk satin, English lace, and frilly details. What I love about AG’s designs is how flattering and sumptuous the garments are for curvy women; the draping and cut of the fabric is so feminine and pretty.

The silk teddy is perfect for wearing under dresses, with skirts, in bed, or around the house. I love the high-waist knickers too! Although many of the pieces fall under the ‘bridal’ category, I think are immensely wearable. A little bit of everyday luxury.

 P.S. Ayten is having a 70% Lingerie Sale of past collections! There are many gorgeous pieces left, including a sweet romper, luxurious satin slips, and the best tap pants I’ve ever seen. Delicious! I’m sure these dandies won’t be available much longer! ♥

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!

Lingerie Wish List: Holiday Edition

7 Dec

A few years ago, my sister started a family tradition with her daughters; every Christmas morning they would wake up to find their Santa Stockings had been stuffed full of new socks & underwear.  The girls loved these goodies and looked forward to their “panty haul” every year.

One year, “Santa” forgot to fill up their stockings and when the girls woke up in the wee hours, there was much complaining when they found there were no socks or panties to be had!  My sister was forced to take the girls shopping the day after Christmas that year so they could get their “panty haul” fix!  Behold the power (and allure) of new lingerie!   “Santa” sure learned a lesson that year!

This tradition still holds strong for me, and even when I didn’t have a bunny-love in my life, I would always buy myself lingerie for Christmas.  Some of my all-time favorite lingerie were gifts to myself!  Two years ago I found a gorgeous 1970s pink satin nightgown for $10, and I wear it constantly.  Did I mention that when I’m home, I can almost always be found floating around like a hollywood starlet, in nighties and dressing gowns?

This holiday season, here’s what I’ve got my eye on!

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!
