All the Pretty Lacy Things

Thanks to Superstorm Sandy, I finally had some time to browse the interwebz for what's new and all the rage in lingerie. Haha, just kidding, lingerie doesn't rage... well, not the kind I seek out anyway. It's more of a classy affair, you know like, champagne and stuff.

Anyway, I was browsing through Lille Boutique's ever-beautiful site, and spotted these two amazing pieces. The lace detailing on the top is exquisite and it's potentially-scandalous sheerness is balanced by the higher-cut neckline. And those shorts? Don't even get me started—you know how I love a good pair of shorts. The black-on-black embroidery detail on these are scream "LOOK AT ME" but in the most delicate, artful way. 

I hadn't heard much about Australian brand Shakuhachi (and creator of these beautiful pieces) until now, but I'll be keeping an eye out for more of their collection—especially if they're as amazing as these.

Who Wears Short Shorts?

Solange Knowles does, that's who. And looked freakin' amazing in this Flaminia Saccucci knickers/skirt hybrid outfit at the MoMA Garden Party yesterday. You go, girl.

The Bra-Short Suit. Yes, Suit.

I haven't posted an editorial recently and so when I was flipping through this Vogue US editorial in the new May 2012 issue, I had to fight the urge to post it immediately. Like, I started looking for iPad apps so I could post it immediately and then had to control myself because let's face it: I was sitting in my doctor's waiting room and was going to be interrupted anyway.

But y'all know how much I love beautiful long-line bras and shorts (well, this is more apparently on Polyvore and Tumblr... and my own personal wardrobe during the summer months), so this amazeballs editorial was slightly mind-blowing for me. They're like bra-short SUITS! SUITS! And while they may not be exaaaactly work-appropriate, a girl can dream. These three were my absolute faves. Enjoy!
