Say Hi to Thursday: Convexity Breaker Jersey Dress by VPL

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.

Convexity Breaker Jersey Dress by VPL
Dear Net-a-Porter,

I love you and your always impeccably selected intimates and loungewear collections (except for the pieces by a brand I will not name but likes to plaster their name on the rear of colorful terrycloth pants, though I will overlook that), and this dress by VPL is no exception. 

This dress is so easy and flowy, and it's the perfect combo of VPL's signature bralette plus a maxi skirt to keep the rest of you left to the imagination. 

So my request: please restock the sold-out sizes, especially the smaller ones because I really want one.

Love,
Me

Convexity Breaker Jersey Dress, $295. Available at Net-A-Porter.com.

Hump Day Pick: Sweet Pieces for a Sweet Valentine's Day

In full recognition of the fact that not every woman feels 100% at ease in sexy, sultry lingerie, I wanted to dedicate a post to the women whose style is more of the sweet, beautiful category. These will still make you look and feel amazing, and that's what's most important!

1. Sugared Grapefruit Bodysuit by Eberjey
Sweet lace with hot pink details make this soft bodysuit an everyday piece—you won't want to only save it for special occasions anyway. I think it'd also look so pretty with a long tulle skirt for an outfit pairing.
Available at Anthropologie, $72.

2. Spree Camisole and Shortie by Elle Macpherson
I'll be honest, the lacy back of this camisole totally hooked me. I love how ordinary cotton becomes a bit fancier with the lace details and prettifies it into something extraordinary. Also comes in black!
Camisole, $87. Shorties, $40. Available at Shop-Underwear.com.

3. Folie Teddy by Mimi Holliday
Leopard print can be really intense, but not on this beautiful silk romper! The sheer silk, frilly detailing on the shorts, and the desaturated print makes this teddy just a baby step towards jungle animal, while keepin' it classy.
Available at Derrière de Soie, $140.

4. Icon Lace Bodysuit by La Perla
Oh, heyyy! This gorgeous bodysuit has black buttons all down the back (you need to see it) and a nude mesh panel in the front. Wear it under your special Valentine's Day outfit, or with high-waisted bottoms to make it your special outfit!
Available at Net-a-Porter.com, $570.

Say Hi to Thursday: Kimini Stretch-Silk Robe by 3.1 Phillip Lim

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.

Kimini Stretch-Silk Robe by 3.1 Phillip Lim



There's nothing worse than loungewear/robes that can't give a little when you just want to relax, which is why I have a hunch that this divine 3.1 Phillip Lim piece made of stretchy silk would be so comfy. And when it comes in such a pretty, blushy peach color, how can you not want to try it on? Luxury, comfort, and a little bit of sparkle all in one. And I love sparkle.

Hump Day Pick: Fête de Coquine Set by Mimi Holliday


I adore this Fête de Coquine Silk Satin Bra & Lace Thong by Mimi Holliday. The cuts are classic Mimi styles, and the silk and lace details area just right, per usual. The bright raspberry red makes me smile and warms up an otherwise chilly Wednesday. Did ya see the little velvet bows on the bra, too?

Tempting Tuesdays: Nichole de Carle Westminster Silk-Satin & Mesh 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!

Westminster Silk-Satin & Mesh Bodysuit by Nichole de Carle
HOLY MOLY. I totally had something else planned for this week's Tempting Tuesday, but I got an email from a bride-to-be asking if I knew of any retailers who carried Nichole de Carle, or if I could recommend any similar lines. Did a quick search for her and ended up finding this mega-hot bodysuit from a Nichole de Carle collection exclusively for Net-a-Porter.com.
And wow. Just, wow. If you read my blog regularly, you've probably noticed that I prefer to post product shots rather than worn on models, but I think you all need to see what this looks like on. I love the lines in the design and how structured it looks, but still has such an airy touch from the mesh & strategically placed cutouts. 

It's so functional too—detachable straps and detachable briefs make this super versatile. You could wear it as a bodysuit, or as a corset sans straps, or just wear the briefs! And with a see-through mesh panel on the bum, who wouldn't love that?

Bodysuit, $225. Exclusively at Net-a-Porter.com.

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!!

Shop Layla's Wishlist!
The Lake and Stars Business Model Bralette, $150. Available at SilkyBottom.com.
Eucalan Lingerie Wash, $11. Available at Eucalan.com.
Carine Gilson Frou Frou Silk-Chiffon Kimono, $1,345. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

12 Days of Christmas: Jean Yu Mini Satin Chemise

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Jean Yu Mini Satin Chemise
I told you things were going to heat up for the last days of our holiday shopping guide! This sleek silk number from Jean Yu is the embodiment of va-va-voom at it's finest. The sheer chiffon panel at the bust and the signature ultra-thin straps differentiates this from any other silk chemise you'll find. Dare to wear it under a long fur coat with big sexy hair even to run errands, à la Carrie Bradshaw.

Satin chemise, $485. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

They come in this fun little box so you'll always have a place to store them. And don't worry—if you wear Tuesday's on a Sunday, no one will know. Maybe.

Travel Babe Lounge Set by Lounge Lover

I love the versatility in this four-piece cashmere/modal blend set from Lounge Lover. You could wear all the pieces at the same time or individually—the tank dress would still look great on its own! A perfect gift idea for the jetsetter who appreciates luxe fabrics and a comfortable flight.

Travel Babe set, $475. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Guest Blogger Wishlist: Erica Paik's Top Five Picks!

Erica is one of my best friends—we've known each other since 5th grade and we've seen our styles evolve over the years, but she's still one of the most stylish ladies I know. Here's her top 5 wishlist picks for this holiday season!

Sometimes all you want is something sparkly during the holidays. Leading to the first item on my wishlist.

1. Cartier Trinity Star Ring
I love stars. Add diamonds and the iconic trinity band and this is a ring I probably wouldn’t take off that often. What would go well with this ring? Oh right.

2. Araks Elena Bralette Sea and Lia Panty Sea
How sexy, futuristic fun is this? Maybe I’ve seen one too many Tron: Legacy ads, but I can imagine this under their suits, if one could wear anything under those suits. Where would I zoom off to in this cute set?

3. A Trip to Korea
Korea-Pojangmacha-01
I blame Korean dramas for this one, but I really would love to go to Korea with a bunch of girlfriends, eat at a pojangmacha (sidebar: a kind of roadside food cart that sells all those delicious, yet so bad for you food that pairs perfectly with soju/beer. For more info go here), have a drink or three, and basically have a two month vacation from life. I’d need something comfy for those long days of lounging.

4. Steven Alan Holiday Jenna Romper
In my perfect (dream) apartment, you would find me reading in front of a blazing fire in this adorable romper. Doesn’t it evoke images of winter, scrunchy ski socks bunched down, and hot cocoa? But in the real world, oh wait this is a Christmas wishlist, so for my final wish I wish for...

5. La Perla New Venus Balconette Bra and Lace-Trimmed Short Briefs
Champagne and pearls please! That’s what I thought of when I first saw this set. Oh wait, I would be wearing the Cartier ring... luckily pearls go with everything, right? Love, love, love the details and in the end isn’t that what life is all about—the details.

xoxo, e

12 Days of Christmas: Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra by Jean Yu


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra by Jean Yu


Let's be serious: I'm sure Eve was more covered up in the Garden of Eden than she would've been in this bra. But this is classic Jean Yu: sheer, nude, and super-delicate.

A perfect gift for the A-cup lady who can appreciate luxurious details like a front clasp and an elastic band in the back. Even the toughest cookie will melt like butter once she sees this one (I sure did!).

Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra, $320. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Tempting Tuesdays: Stella McCartney Clara Whispering Satin Set

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!

Stella McCartney Clara Whispering Satin Bra & Thong Set
This week's Tempting Tuesday is dedicated to my dear friend Deborah! This gorgeous Stella set reminded me of another I posted last month that she liked. Even though the white/ivory colors give this one a bridal-ish feel, she's been talking a lot about weddings lately, so I think it's perfect for her. Love you Deb!

Tempting Tuesdays: VPL Liquid Jersey Bra and Briefs

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!

VPL Liquid Jersey Bra and Briefs
In honor of the upcoming Holiday season, I'd like to dedicate this week's Tempting Tuesday set to one of my best friends, Erica. She is the ultimate lover of all things sparkly, glittery and shiny. Though she likes to fight me on high-waisted briefs, I think the high shimmer level of this set might make up for the style. 

Liquid jersey bra, $165. Briefs, $135. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Hump Day Pick: Minuit Silk-Chiffon Playsuit by Mimi Holliday

A playful poem for a playful playsuit!

Sweet polka dots in black and white, 
It's not too loose, and not too tight,
If you wake up with your hair messy,
This silk number'll make you feel sexy.

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?

Mimi Holliday by Damaris Bisou Bisou Lace Bodysuit

This gorgeous bodysuit is definitely on my "holliday" wish list! Sheer and sexy with an understated elegance, it has the perfect amount of frills to make you feel feminine but not too sugary sweet.

Stella McCartney Wants You to Be a Mermaid for Halloween.


Okay, maybe not really but how gorgeous is this set? I love the scalloping—a detail we've seen in her ready-to-wear collection over the years. I first saw this in one of the fashion mags from this month (can't recall which one) and a bit of digging also found...

...A PLAYSUIT!

or romper, whatever you want to call it. Either way, it's silky, smooth, and oh-so-pretty. I mean, I'd probably wear that for halloween. It definitely covers up more than most Ricky's costumes do anyway, right?

Bra, $125, Briefs, $60, Playsuit, $195. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Color Stories: Going Green

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I was thinking about what I should post this week and realized I haven't done a color story in awhile, so I'm gonna go green today.

Green is an interesting color for lingerie, I think. Most retailers have the standard white, black, pink, red, black, flesh tones, purples... but green is pretty rare. Sometimes the styles are terrible or the hues are awful, but I found a few sets that will make you say "wow!" for different reasons.

1. Olive and Eve set by Amulette: Delicate, lacey swirls in a comforting moss green, and the straps have tiny little flutter sleeves! Pick this one up to feel like a sweet goddess.
Bralette, $78 and briefs, $68. Available at Anthropologie.com.

2. Spree Lace Bra and Briefs by Elle Macpherson: this is the standard Elle bra that comes in different colors. It's comfortable, basic and an everyday staple! Paired with the briefs, it can transform into special set for a late-night rendez-vous.
Spree Lace Bra, $62 and briefs, $30. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

3. Malizia Sirena Demi Bra and Bikini Briefs by La Perla: The queen of haute lingerie, La Perla never disappoints with super sexy cuts that are also comfy. The extra scallop trim on the sides of the bikini transform an otherwise ordinary bottom into a piece that will make you feel like a mermaid!
Sirena Demi Bra, $109 and briefs, $59. Available at LaPerla.com.

4. Delirious Triangle Bralette and French Briefs by Eberjey: Basic, flirty and comes in every color (well, almost). Perfect for lounging around in on the weekend when you don't want to leave your home, at least I think so! (Note: The real color is closer to the yellowish-green on the briefs. The photo on journelle is a bit wonky, I think).
Triangle bra, $38 and French briefs, $30. Available at Journelle.com.
