Say Hi to Thursday: You Fun, Fancy, Flirty Fleur't, You

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.

Fleur't Simone Sheer Chemise

I don't post chemises all that often (well, not ones like this at least) mostly because 1. they're not really my style, 2. I rarely wear dresses anymore, so why would I wear one in the bedroom, and 3. I feel like these are usually styled to look like what the heroine of a Danielle Steel novel would wear. Full disclosure: I have never read a Danielle Steele novel, though I was a huge Mary Higgins Clark fan in middle school. Don't tell my mom.

But this one by Fleur't caught my eye for a few reasons. I love that it looks more expensive than the $98 price point, and I also love that it's all black—even the lace trim—and has great potential to be styled as a going out outfit, with the proper foundations of course. If anyone tries this, let me know!

You Know You Want One More Giveaway...

Hi guys!!! How was your week? Good? Bad? I'm going to make it better. Underwear in Austin, TX wants one of you to have an awesome piece of lingerie from their fabulously curated boutique. I've yet to visit the store in person, but they have a fantastic e-commerce site with tons of gorgeous lingerie and loungewear. The tough part of shopping online sometimes is that smaller sizes are usually gone first, but Underwear always seems to have the pieces I want in my size.

Sooo guess what they're offering up for this really rad giveaway?!
Yeap, that's right—The Lake and Stars Citadel Pinstripe chemise! I gushed about this in March and then finally splurged on it when Journelle had an amazing 30% off sale, aaaand it is definitely one of the best pieces I've had for this summer. I wear it as a top with skirts and shorts and pants and jeans... you get the point. I just roll up the bottom to tuck it into high-waisted shorts since there's a pretty sturdy wide elastic at the bottom. I can't wait to come up with new outfits with it for fall and winter, but honestly, it's pretty freakin' awesome on it's own too.

Aaanyway, Elizabeth at Underwear loves Pretty Little Underthings (you lucky ducks!) and is offering a chemise to one lucky reader! Just follow the instructions below to enter, and I'll announce the winner over on Facebook on Friday, August 19th

Bow-Chika-Bow-Bowww... Let's Talk About Bows, Baby

By that, I specifically mean bows on lingerie. I think I've posted very few sets that involve bows. They're not really my style, they're kind of difficult to wear out without having a hump in your butt, and going to the bathroom can incite fears of the bow dipping into the toilet inadvertently (you know, if it's a big bow). Even these Mimi Holliday bottoms with a little silk ribbon tie in the back are kind of a pain in the butt (haha, pun intended). But alas, that thong with the little silk bow led to the suggestion, "You should get more lingerie with bows." Ugghhh.

The only ones I could think of were from Mimi Holliday. What's a girl to do? Oh right, Google the crap out of "lingerie with bows". Okay, not really but I did find this round up of bottoms with bows in case any of you ladies ever go blank when someone tells you to get more lingerie with bows. Sigh.

1. Mimi Holliday Silk Bow-Back Thong
Available at, $60.

2. Ophelia Fancy Bow Back Knickers
Available at Faire Frou Frou, $145.

3. Hopeless Lingerie Cheryl Coral Silk Bow Garter Belt
Available at Hopeless Lingerie, $136.

4. Toad Lillie High-Waisted Vintage Inspired Silk Panties
Available at Bella Bella Boutique $95.

Bonus: This gorgeous peach & gold pair from Damaris is available at Faire Frou Frou, and they're on sale for $91.20 down from $228!

Hump Day Pick: Pretty in (Padded) Purple

image via
'Ello, loves! Did ya miss me? I know there have been a lack of posts the past couple of weeks; I blame a horrific moving experience, my birthday, and the discomfort of not yet having a desk at home so my lovely Mac desktop is on the floor (which is where I lay as I type this now). But I'm baaaaack!

I went to the Journelle semi-annual sale yesterday after work, where I found this Mimi Holliday padded plunge bra (my favorite style, ya know) on saaaale! I love the deep purple color and how it's simple enough to wear as an everyday bra, yet pretty enough to want to wear it all the time.

Journelle mostly had smaller sizes, so if you need something slighter bigger, Underwear in Austin, Texas has a couple left in stock. AND they're offering 30% off all Mimi Holliday pieces through the end of July with the code "mimi0711"!

Mimi Holliday Pompier Padded Super Plunge Bra, $82. Pompier Classic Knicker, $75. Available at Underwear.

Say Hi to Thursday: A Lovely Lacy Romper by Else Lingerie

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.

Lace Cup Silk Romper by Else Lingerie

So since the theme so far this week has been "lovely," I think this little lace-trimmed romper by Else Lingerie is the perfect, lovely little piece to showcase today. There's elastic at the waist to give you a lovely silhouette, and a deep-V back with criss-cross straps. And if you wanna get a little cheeky in the back, this romper is for you. The style says casual, but the silk demurely purrs, "luxe." Who are you to argue with voices that encourage loveliness?

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

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, $570.

Lace, open backs, hook-and-eye closures, sleek satins—whatever turns you on, here's four sultry picks for Saint Valentine's Day... even if these scream "siren" instead of "saint".

1. Rosalyn Open Back Knicker by Myla
Available at, $106.

2. Stephanee Satin Tanga Briefs by Agent Provacateur
Available at, $170.

3. Rouge d'Amour Boy Short by Mimi Holliday

Hump Day Pick: Lure or Be Lured Set by Elle Macpherson

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but sapphire-hued lingerie takes "lover" status, especially with patterned mesh panels and unconventional shoulder straps. This plunge bra is perfect for the ladies who are on the smaller side of an A-cup since it runs a bit shallow, but the underwire gives a lil' bit of lift too. I'm all for mix-and-matching lingerie, but this is a set that's meant to be together, forever. Kinda like diamonds.

Lure or Be Lured Bra, $70. Available at
Lure or Be Lured Bikini, $35. Available at
