Baby, It's Cold Outside.

There's a blizzard underway in NYC (which I'm hoping doesn't get as bad as everyone's predicting, knock on wood) but I've got my lingerie to keep me warm. Especially this new "Chelsea" set from new luxury-lingerie line Ampere. Co-founder Jiabei Chen invited a few lucky ladies to an afternoon tea last weekend to preview the debut pieces from Ampere and for us to treat ourselves to a pretty pre-Valentine's Day something.


As I noted on Facebook the other day, even though the debut pieces from Ampere are limited to three styles (two bra/thong sets & a beautiful silk romper), the designs are so obviously tailored to the modern Manhattan power woman. With style names like "Chelsea", "Madison", and "Gramercy", the debut collection solidifies the brand's connection to New York City, but when you further examine the pieces, you understand the women who also inspires Ampere. She's the next generation of power women—beautiful, ambitious, incredibly smart, but still appreciates the small boost of je ne sais quoi that fine lingerie can inject into her everyday attitude—much like the ladies I met at the afternoon tea event.

I'll follow up with another post about sizing. I'm currently breaking in my new bra so I'll have more updates on sizing tips after that!

And if you're in the path of Blizzard Nemo... stay warm, stay safe!
