Valentine's Day Romper Roundup

Valentine's Day is on a Sunday this year, so most of you are probably going out on a Saturday and staying in bed late the morning over. And what better to wear when sleeping in than a romper? The three-piece lingerie suit is great for the night before, but you'll want some comfort the morning after. Here's my roundup of playsuit favorites that'll put you in a good mood on Feburary 15th, no matter what happens the day before.

From top, clockwise from left:

1. Eberjey Plume of Love Teddy
Even though you buy it for Valentine's Day, the soft cotton jersey and muted feminine detailing will make this a perennial favorite.

2. Only Hearts So Fine Low-Back Bodysuit I have this bodysuit and love how versatile it can be. The lace detailing on the bottom makes this lingerie-as-outerwear-friendly so you can wear it with jeans/skirts/whatever and let it just look like a tank top. Friendly in the front and a party in the back with a deep scoop.

3. Else Lingerie Baklava Cut-Out Bodysuit For the ladies who love patterns, the geometric motif on this bodysuit gives a super-modern mood while perfectly placed cutouts are flattering on everyone. Wear it under an oversized buttondown and let yourself unbutton one more than you usually do.

4. Free People Midnight Hours Bodysuit 
A perfectly paired combo of lace and mesh. Deep V front and back is universally flattering and makes it another great contender for innerwear-as-outerwear.

Beat the Heat: Summertime Bra Roundup, Part 1

If you live in NYC (the tri-state area, including eastern Pennsylvania), you'll know what I'm talking about when I say "IT'S TOO DAMN HOT TO WEAR A BRA". These seemingly incessant heat waves even continue with thunderstorms that aren't powerful enough to break the miserable weather.

But let's be serious—I love wearing white in the summer, thus I can't not wear a bra. But I do have a few that have been my saving grace these past couple of months, mostly made of the softest mesh and lace that are still utterly breathable and comfortable even as I run around the city dripping with sweat (SO ladylike, I know). Beat the summer heat with these styles (mostly wireless) that won't add another layer of sweaty misery to your outfit.


1. Mimi Holliday Tarte Tartin Non-padded bra, $90, on sale for $63. Available at journelle.com.   2. Only Hearts Whisper Bralette, $58. Available at charlieandlee.com.  3. The Lake and Stars Miracle Box honeycomb mesh & fishnet bra, $135. Available at net-a-porter.com.  4. Only Hearts Venice Lace Bralette, $53. Available at charlieandlee.com.  5.

Only Hearts Sample Sale — Santa Monica, CA

I'm on vacation in sunny California (thank God, because the past five days of rain in NYC was pushing me to the edge), and as fate would have it, one of my favorite lines, Only Hearts is having a sample sale this weekend! When I got to the store, I was surprised to see brown paper in the windows and wondered if they were doing construction. Turns out, they turned the window displays into impromptu fitting rooms!

All the sale items have been moved to the front, and anything that's still full-priced is in the back and blocked off. This weekend is sample sale only, ladies! I'm really glad they did it this way because then there's no confusion at all as to what's on sale and what's not. There's shoes, accessories, jewelry in addition to the racks of camis, PJs, bralettes, and layerable dresses and skirts. Buckets of hipsters and briefs are organized by size and sit on top of shelves that house organic cotton pieces. 

If you're in the LA area, definitely stop by and check out the sale. Most of the boutiques on Montana Avenue are going to be having sales tomorrow, so make a day of it and see what else you can find!
The "fitting rooms"!

Adorable hairpin tray

Buckets o' bikinis! There are buckets o' hipsters too.

Organic cotton undies in heart-shaped baskets (of course!)

Colorful camis — can you spot the All Lace cropped cami? Marked down to $26 from $62!

Bralettes + bras!

 And dear readers, this is how I feel about you!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

An Only Hearts Valentine's Day!


Last Thursday, I happily attended an Only Hearts trunk show at Anthropologie SoHo and it was just as lovely as you would imagine it to be. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the Anthropologie ladies as well as the Only Hearts team, and it was really exciting to hear about how Anthro is stepping up their intimates game in a way that other RTW retailers really should really pay attention to.

Kaya & Helena Stuart

I also got to meet Helena and Kaya Stuart, the completely adorable mother/daughter design duo behind the label, and talking to them only made me love their line more. I loved telling them how I wore the all-lace cropped cami with a high-waisted skirt and I realized that for them, hearing how other people wear the pieces and make them their own is a big part of what makes their jobs so enjoyable.

Hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day, regardless of whether you're single or attached!

xoxo,
Esther

I still can't get over this completely adorable bronze set. Bra, $48, bottoms, $32.

Tempting Tuesdays: Only Hearts Whisper Racerback Bralette & Ruched Boyshorts

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!

Whisper Racerback Bralette and Ruched Boyshort by Only Hearts
If Maison Close's mesh collections are too intense and just not your style, try this delicate bralette and boyshort set from Only Hearts. I love Only Hearts' mesh pieces because they can make you feel so sensual without sacrificing comfort. 

This gorgeous bralette has some lace touches to keep the racerback straps from being too athletic, and the boyshorts have an adorable ruching detail in the back. The racerback style is pretty popular this season, with so many designers producing pretty bras with the detail, so at least try it on and see how different it feels!

Hump Day Pick: So Fine Lace Cropped Cami by Only Hearts


Lace! Strech! Strategically designed patterns! How can you not love that combo, especially in a camisole? This is one cami I'd definitely wear out with wide-leg trousers and heels, and not just hide it in the bedroom. It comes in white, black and pink (not shown). Am I the only one seeing how there's a nice/naughty juxtaposition just from seeing white & black next to each other?

Available online at Shopbop.com, $65.
