Ruffles and Raspberry Layers for Valentine's Day

Lascivious Simone Raspberry Set

Helloooo loverrrrr. I feel like this set just purrs and speaks for itself, no? The way that suspender belt is cut is unlike any other I've paid attention to in almost a year—and with the amazing silhouette it helps shape, how could I resist? I love the raspberry gradients in this set, partially created by black mesh overlays that add a bit of naughtiness *tsk tsk*. I normally hate that adjective (naughty) to describe lingerie, but this one's a little nice with a little spice. You agree, right? Yep, that's what I thought.

An LBL is Always, Always Right

Stella McCartney Florence Acting Underwire Bra & French Knickers

LBL: Little Black Lingerie. Honestly, you really can't go wrong with black lingerie. Especially when it's in the form of this lacy set from Stella McCartney. I may or may not have silently freaked out when I saw this the other week (really, my internal monologue was something like this: "OMGOMGOMGOMG WHYYYYYY IS IT SO PRETTYYYYY") and I haven't been able to get it out of my head ever since.

Gentlemen, if you're reading this particular post, Valentine's Day lingerie gifts are not limited to red and pink, nor outrageously sexy and borderline inappropriate for life in general. Black lingerie may seem ordinary, but LBL's as stylish and classy as this one are a bound to be the perfect gift. Boom.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide: Pour La Francophile

Oh, the Francophile. The fille who dreams of Paris, strolling along the Seine while nibbling on macarons and carrying a baguette under her arm. Adores Chanel and Hermès, and is constantly trying to learn the infinite ways French women seem have to tie a simple scarf (which somehow seems to create a whole new outfit, even if it's the same thing she wore the day before). Repeatedly watches Les Parapluies de Cherbourg and Amélie, playing La Vie en Rose on a loop on Saturday mornings while making breakfast...

Okay, you get the picture. But in case you still have absolutely no idea what to gift your French-loving lover for Valentine's day, here's a few suggestions.
