Tempting Tuesdays: Floral Lace All Over, Thanks Agent Provocateur!

Tuesdays will feature a lustworthy lingerie set and a suggested retailer. I think we all need a little something beautiful to at least look at to get us through the week. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Agent Provocateur makes some of the hottest (by that I mean, amp-ed up sexypants) luxury lingerie on the market, and when I saw this set on, I did a double-take when I saw those bottoms. Holy cannoli, cutout briefs. I've seen cutout high-waisted briefs before, but on regular ol' granny panty style bottoms, seeing cutout bottoms is a first for me. These aren't for your granny. Unless your granny has like, really incredible taste in lingerie.

Floral lace? Check. Super-hot cutout bottoms? Check. A garter that makes the whole ensemble look freaking incredible on your body? Hell to the yes. In fact, I think the garter is what really makes this set look so amazing together. Take a looksee here and here. Convinced now? Kthnxbye.

Clare Bare S/S 2012: Bright Lights, Space-Dye

I got to meet Clare Bare last month at the Lingerie Designer Showcase, which was pretty exciting. I had heard about her and seen a few of her pieces online, but experiencing her collection in person was a real pleasure. I loved hearing about her process and how her lingerie line came about (she had a growing collection of vintage fabrics that she need to use them for something). 

Her eco-friendly creations are pretty awesome and super-soft to the touch. She incorporates some really striking details, like criss-cross strappy details in the back of a bodysuit, and tie-dyed mesh paneling to bare it all. These three were some of my favorites—but you really should check out the rest of her collection.

I really loved this bodysuit—the way the back dips, how the straps in the back cross down and around so it doesn't gap, and the tie-dyed mesh is super sexy but still really fun.

Hustle Rose Wireless Bustier & Phoenix Lights Garter Short, Night Bloomer Collection 
Okay, y'all know I love anything high-waisted and this garter short is no exception. The bustier bra has a really cool strap detail in the back and as the name says—no wires! Yay! I mean, I know some of you need that but smaller cups who hate wires, rejoice. This one's for you. Plus, the floral-print cups give this otherwise serious bustier a sweet spin.

Illuminate Me Criss Cross Romper, Night Bloomer Collection 
Guyssssss, I'm telling you: this one is gorgeous! The bright chartreuse contrasted with the black accents and floral print is something really special. I love how it's cut and pieced together. And it's super-soft to the touch. Always a good quality for lingerie. This one also has a scoop bottom (helloooo back dimples!) and a criss-cross strappy detail. Do it.
