Tempting Tuesdays: Printed Silk Bra & Briefs by Marni

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!

Marni Printed Silk Bra and Briefs
Oh heyyyyyy! I saw these on Net-a-Porter—no, they immediately popped out to me because of the amazing colors and print. The simple bralette shape is super-flattering and the hot pants are a great alternative to boxers

Bralette, $235 and briefs, $180. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Damaris Nouvelle Amour Underwired Lace Bra & Briefs
A quick note: I don't normally like to post photos of the models, and only do when I can't find a photo of the lingerie on it's own. However, I thought the way these briefs are cut so cheekily in the back (no pun intended... ok, maybe a little bit) are so fun that I just had to show the model this week!

Stirrup Leggings: Yay or Nay?

My coworker was searching for new jeans online the other week, and she came across a lot of jeggings, leggings, then stirrup leggings. Yes—STIRRUP LEGGINGS. I nearly died when she mentioned them, and suddenly all of wonderful memories of the cute (and incredibly comfortable) outfits my mom used to buy me in elementary school came to mind. Like, tops with cute (sometimes neon) prints and ribbons and matching bottoms that oftentimes were—you guessed it—stirrup leggings. (I mean, come on, it was the 90's).

Then the next day on the bus, I saw a woman wearing stirrup leggings but she was probably in her 60's, so I'm guessing she's had 'em for awhile. 

And then a few days ago, I found these on Net-a-Porter.com. The new and improved stirrup leggings for 2010-2011. 
So, I'm not gonna lie, aside from the atrocious price tag, I kinda love them. Soft black jersey, cute buttons and a higher-rise waist to avoid accidental plumber's crack, and the stirrup would ensure that the legs don't ride up and twist around throughout the day. However, I feel like one con would be the difficulty in tailoring the length. If you have shorter legs like me, these are bound to be too long and the stirrup is kinda moot, no?

What do you think about stirrup leggings? Should we leave 'em in the '90's or let them come back if they promise to cooperate with everyone?

Tempting Tuesdays: Charmeuse Briefs by Jean Yu

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!


Forbidden Keyhole Bra and Charmeuse Briefs by Jean Yu
So really, I don't think I need to describe why I love these briefs (and the bra that's sadly sold out). Gorgeous peach-colored briefs with black trim and a cutout detail in just the right (tasteful!) spot. The bra is just as beautiful with a ruched back and clasps in the front, and the little band underneath the cutout gives a hint of bondage without overstepping into Maison Close's territory. 
Briefs, $360. Available at Net-a-Porter.com. Bra, $495 (was on sale for $346.50, now sold out).

ZOMG List: The Shadow Bodysuit by Willow

How incredible is this bodysuit by Willow?! It has an exposed zipper in the back and created from satin jersey. At the price, it's definitely an investment and something to take care of very well. This would be an incredible bodysuit to glam up a night on the town and especially for the holidays that are coming up so soon!
