Sex and the City Nostalgia

Let's discuss how much I miss Sex and the City for a minute. Yes, I do watch my SatC DVDs over and over, and I have most of Carrie Bradshaw's legendary quips memorized. But most of all, I miss her cray-cray outfits that always showed off her lingerie somehow, though through the seasons it became a bit more conservative. 

But this outfit from the first Sex and the City movie is probably one of my favorites—a Lake and Stars chemise with high-waisted jeans. I've been looking for that chemise or something similar for years now. I kept seeing pieces on random websites but they were never in my size.

I went to Journelle the other day for a little treat (and to use my 30% off coupon, thaaaanks Journelle!) and spotted this little number from The Lake and Stars. It's not exactly the same, but has the spirit of the Carrie-worn piece I've been searching for! The Royale Chemise is perfectly paired with the Royale Tap Pants—and the beautiful golden peach color is so lovely and undoubtedly matches anything in your wardrobe. I'd say I'm adding this one to my Christmas wish list, but I'm sure that I won't stay in stock that long. 

The Lake and Stars Royale Camisole, $158 and Royale Tap Short, $65. Available online at

Hump Day Pick: Josefine Set by Lascivious

image via lascivious

I have no idea who Josefine is, but if she inspired this incredibly cheeky set by Lascivious, then I'm sure she'd be a pretty fun friend to hang out with. I especially love the little keyhole details in the middle of the bra and the sides of the shorts—as if this set wasn't exposed enough as it is. But that's the fun in it, right? And it makes the perfect bridal shower gift for the dedicated lingerie lover.

Josefine Bra, $157. Josefine Shorts, $137. Available at Faire Frou Frou.

Bow-Chika-Bow-Bowww... Let's Talk About Bows, Baby

By that, I specifically mean bows on lingerie. I think I've posted very few sets that involve bows. They're not really my style, they're kind of difficult to wear out without having a hump in your butt, and going to the bathroom can incite fears of the bow dipping into the toilet inadvertently (you know, if it's a big bow). Even these Mimi Holliday bottoms with a little silk ribbon tie in the back are kind of a pain in the butt (haha, pun intended). But alas, that thong with the little silk bow led to the suggestion, "You should get more lingerie with bows." Ugghhh.

The only ones I could think of were from Mimi Holliday. What's a girl to do? Oh right, Google the crap out of "lingerie with bows". Okay, not really but I did find this round up of bottoms with bows in case any of you ladies ever go blank when someone tells you to get more lingerie with bows. Sigh.

1. Mimi Holliday Silk Bow-Back Thong
Available at, $60.

2. Ophelia Fancy Bow Back Knickers
Available at Faire Frou Frou, $145.

3. Hopeless Lingerie Cheryl Coral Silk Bow Garter Belt

Say Hi to Thursday: A Little (or A Lotta) Rawr for the Weekend

Say Hi to Thursday, a special day of the week when there's only one more work day before a glorious weekend awaits. Pretty Little Underthings will showcase a weekend-perfect piece we'd love to wear.

Marguerite Riding Bralette & Briefs by Stella McCartney

When I first saw this set a few months ago, I luuurrrved it. The bralette style softens the "wild child" stigma of animal print and keeps it from crossing the line into trashy territory (psh, please—as if Stella could ever create something trashy). The wide band keeps it comfy, but the fun leopard print has potential for your inner animal to emerge. Rawr. 

Bralette, $90. Bikini, $45. Available at Faire Frou Frou.

Guest Blogger Wishlist: Layla L'obatti's Top Five Picks!

I got to meet Layla L'obatti, founder and designer of Between the Sheets Lingerie and Specimens of Seduction last month when she generously offered to sponsor a BTS giveaway here on Pretty Little Underthings (the first!). She & her boyfriend Josh are both so sweet so I asked Layla what her wishlist picks were (Josh, hint hint).

Here are my personal holiday picks:

1. The Lake and Stars Business Model Bralette
If there is any one thing I'd love to wear to enhance my own pieces (from Between the Sheets Collection) I'd want a signature Lake and Stars bralette, and this Business Model silhouette from this season would be perfect paired with our Playdate Babydoll in black! 

2. Eucalan Lingerie Wash

I am wishing for a little kick in the underpants, so I would love some Eucalan wash in my stockings—I love their eucalyptus, grapefruit, and lavender scents.

3. Lascivious Ana Bodysuit
I have lusted for this piece since I very first saw it, from one designer to a very haute brand—I love Lascivious's Ana Bodysuit, the color, the lace, the cut, the fit... it's just drop dead gorgeous glam.

4. Carine Gilson Frou-Frou Silk-Chiffon Kimono

Another lingerie designer crush, I want to sell to Net-A-Porter a la Carine Gilson, and I want to wear this stunning chiffon kimono with lace applique! When I "make it" this will be my gift to myself.

5. Bottega Louie Macarons
After our recent trip to LA we visited the most amazing gem that I wish I had brought back more of! Bottega Louie has the most amazing macarons I've tasted (they happen to have also been my first at the recommendation of both Alison at Faire Frou Frou and another good friend in LA!) and I am dying to taste their salted caramel and all the deliciousness that we brought home and finished shortly after. So santa baby, slip a little something sweet under the tree, for me, I've been an awful good girl!!
