Lust List: A Little Bit O' Lace

I'm currently coveting this wispy little Kiki de Montparnasse lace cami + briefs set. I've had it open in my browser for over a week and keep going back to look at it.

I think in a way it sort of represents what Pretty Little Underthings has been in 2013: sparse in coverage (haha, sorry... kinda), but beautiful nonetheless, and a little complex. Looking forward to welcoming 2014 and all the beautiful lingerie to come in the new year. Cheers!

An Outfit: Taking the Camisole Past the Bedroom

So, I get a lot of criticism (some of it not so direct, but I still get the gist of it nonetheless) for posting items that are expensive and "too luxe" for the average consumer. But isn't part of the fun of having a blog the fact that I can post whatever I want if I think it looks beautiful? I've never said that I've bought every piece on this blog, most of them are wishlist-y items that I admire or see potential in for a cool outfit, like this Kiki de Montparnasse Amour camisole.

Camisoles aren't really my thing for a few reasons, but mostly I just prefer the low-key option o' cotton. But I love this Kiki cami because I think it could make such a solidly cool outfit. It looks pretty plain from the front, but the back of it ties up to expose those super-toned back muscles you've been working on in yoga (I know what you've been up do, don't worry).
So voilĂ : three different outfit ideas for this camisole, courtesy of my boredom + Polyvore. Oh and also, yesterday marked my 6-year anniversary with NYC, and I'd like to think of these outfits as wish list wardrobes to celebrate my lovely little milestone with the best city in the world. xx

Guest Blogger Wishlist: Mimi Nguyen of

My friend Mimi Nguyen is one of the most stylish people I know, with an intense energy and passion for life. She's a founding member of the non-profit organization Pencils of Promise, and recently launched a startup with her partners called—a super-easy way to share and view street style (currently by invitation only). Read on to see what she wants this year, and the team is extending an exclusive invite to thread to Pretty Little Underthings' readers if you leave a comment here!

1. Kiki de Montparnasse Intime Jersey Wrap Teddy

It's the girl-next-door type of sexy. I'm so busy most of the days that I appreciate my down time. This looks like the perfect at home lounge piece. I can feel comfortable to be a sexy couch potato while I run down my DVR list of trashy reality tv.

2. Missoni Home Gomitolo Set of Three Wax Candles

These are super fun and would go well in my apartment that's a mix of POP colors. I think these are simple accents to add in my home that are also functional. 

3. Dannijo Bibi Necklace

I love all of Dannijo's artwork. I find all of their pieces inspiring, empowering, and sensuous. It's like wearing a mirror into my soul.

4. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

Books are one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. Steve Jobs was a fascinating and inspirational man that's lasting impact will be felt for generations to come. I want nothing more than to cozy up at home and read his biography to learn more about this man we heard of but knew little about. I'm hoping I can take away something for my journey as a young entrepreneur. 

5. Braced-lets Pencils of Promise Exclusive Tri-Pack

These are the coolest bracelets out now. A few of my friends noticed them (in other colors) on me and asked where I got them. Well, now I've got another reason to get more! The non-profit organization Pencils of Promise (I'm a founding member) just launched the collaboration with Braced-lets. The profits from this partnership will go to building and sustaining a new school in Nicaragua!

The Celebration Continues: Kiki de Montparnasse

This gorgeous set featuring Kiki de Montparnasse is by my bestie Erica! This set really is her style to a T — even the Lipstick Queen and the amazing sculptural rings.

An Outfit: The New (& More Fun) Bustier.

Bustiers need a lil' love. I think we've all become so accustomed to thinking of these as soon as we hear or read "bustier". But we should start thinking of ones like this Kiki de Montparnasse one, that we can lovingly wear as tops and make really, really fun outfits from! I'd love to wear this outfit this weekend—if only I had that bustier, Hurricane Irene be damned.

See the items on Polyvore.

Tempting Tuesdays: Lacy Loveliness in a Bodysuit

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!

La Fleur Lace Bodysuit by Kiki de Montparnasse
I scored the Absinthe teddy at an Araks sample sale a couple weeks ago, and I've been wearing it as a bodysuit with trousers, high-waisted jeans, a maxi skirt, anything, everything because it just looks SO AWESOME (if I do say so myself). 

So now that you know I've been wearing the same thing over and over, I needed to show you this amaaaaazing lacy bodysuit from Kiki de Montparnasse. Look at the additional photos on Net-a-Porter, particularly this one:
HOW AMAZING IS THAT?! I love that the bodysuit itself is such a lovely neutral color, and the purple lace pattern draws all the attention (well the plunge back does too). There's a zipper back there, in case you were wondering how to get it on. Snaps at the bottom so you can actually pee (did American Apparel learn this yet?), adjustable straps, and soft cups with underwire—the bodysuit trifecta.

Oh, and did I mention how awesomely gorgeous it is?

Hump Day Pick: Shadow Striped Set by Kiki de Montparnasse

Attention ladies: Kiki de Montparnasse wants you to be a zebra. A very stylish, sexy zebra. The end.

Just kidding! This gorgeous set immediately caught my eye thanks to the bold stripes against the sheer silk, and how the bottoms looked like they didn't have elastic around the legs, so they have a bit of a flutter. I love flutter.

And just as I thought, the stripes are fairly subtle against your skin (see more images on, so you won't have to worry about a Hamburglar effect. Or a zebra. Just flutter.

Shadow striped silk-chiffon triangle bra, $125. Briefs, $110. Available at

Say Hi to Thursday: A Comfy Travel Outfit

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.

Lounge Lover Sweet Insomnia Cashmere Blend Dress 
& Kiki de Montparnasse Cashmere-Blend Ribbed Leggings
This week, my weekend officially starts today after work! I'm taking tomorrow off for a girls' trip to Boston to visit one of my beloved girlfriends at law school. I'm going through my mental closet trying to think of what I should wear for the 4-hour train ride from NYC to Boston and back. I was browsing around and saw these two pieces that look so incredibly comfy and warm, and would be perfect for this weekend. Say hi to Thursday!

What's your favorite travel wear? Something fancy or something lounge-y and comfortable?
