Shopping Tip: A Sexy Slip by Double in Brass!

The lovely ladies of The Lake & Stars teamed up with Urban Outfitters this year to create a collection of gorgeous bodysuits and lingerie under the label Double in Brass. It's been a huge hit, and they recently restocked this gorgeous slip in black!

If you're shorter like me, you can probably get away with wearing it as a dress (ooh la la), and the plunge back with their signature hook and eye closure is super hot. If you can't wear it out, it's still guaranteed to bring a touch of sexy elegance to the bedroom.
Chiffon Strappy Slip by Double in Brass by The Lake & Stars, available at, $68.

Allure Cover Girl Kim Kardashian Wears Jenna Leigh

So by now, we all know that Kim Kardashian wore Jenna Leigh's Elle Balconette bra on the the cover of Allure September 2010. I love that bra and remember trying one on at Journelle back in the spring, but there was only one and unfortunately not my size. Also, the Elle is from one of Jenna's past collections, so it's pretty much sold out at most retailers who carried it.

Lucky for you guys (and me!), I have some super-duper Googling skills and found it online! And in stock! Gigi's Closet had some key sizes in stock (and still do), and for $94.39, which is less than the $118 retail price. Shipping to New York was free via ground shipping, and no tax. It's win-win-win for everyone, so make sure you nab yours ASAP!
