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.

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

Guest Blogger Stories: Zinke Trunk Show at Forty Winks

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know how much I love Zinke and how much I adore the ladies of Forty Winks. So of course my head nearly exploded when I heard about the Zinke trunk show at Forty Winks! One of my best friends, Deborah Yi, is amazing and trekked through remnants of the Boston blizzard to take a few photos for Pretty Little Underthings. Here's the trunk show through her eyes:

I have to say, as a lingerie virgin, I thought it would be a little bit overwhelming to go to my first ever lingerie trunk show, but I was so enamored by the Zinke pieces. Everything is so delicate but bold at the same time. And the colors! It's kind of funny because most of my wardrobe consists of black/gray/white and neutral tones, but for lingerie and pretty little underthings, I think I really gravitate towards colors. The prices were a bit out of my budget (for now!), but I feel like it should be every girl's goal in life to own and wear a ruffled hammered silk royal purple romper.

I'm definitely going to return to Forty Winks as Valentine's Day approaches. There's something about that little boutique that is just so precious.
love the snow dusting their sign

"I wish you were there with me! I couldn't find anyone to go with me. Lingerie stores are more fun with girlfriends." Truer words...

Thank you Deborah! xoxo
