I just received some more photos from my summer NYC shoot with Lars Kommienezuspadt over over the weekend, and I had to share them here straight away. I can’t help but fall in love with Lars’ photography, even when I’m not the subject. He makes all his models – including the nonmodels like me – look exquisite, and the makeup artist he chose for this shoot, Brown Paper Doll Beauty, […]

I just can’t even come up with the words to describe my feelings for this gown. If ever there was a dressing gown that embodied Hollywood glamour – that was pure, undiluted, old school, cigarette holder, dripping jewels allure – this is it. The Emerald & Palm Dressing Gown has no shame about being what it is, and what it is over the top, lascivious, inspired luxury. There’s no attempt […]

I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of a mesh dress. Obviously, it’s perfect for outerwear as part of a layered look, but a sheer dress is also excellent as lay-around-the house loungewear. Universal Standard’s Thames Fog Dress is a recent discovery, but I’m already plotting how it’d look in my wardrobe. The black or plum would be great paired with a more opaque slip or chemise […]

I’m often envious of ‘cool girl’ style. That ability to just put together an outfit, to look effortlessly chic with a recognizable personal style is a skill I’ve not quite mastered. Oh, I definitely have a lingerie style, more or less, (lots of black, if you want to call it a style), but my outerwear is super heavy on the jeans and t-shirts end of things. I keep telling myself […]

As my thoughts drift to the first summer spent in my new home, I can’t but feel excited at the thought of updating my predominately gray and black wardrobe with brighter, more climate-appropriate pieces. After years of carrying a black hoodie “just in case” and avoiding silk lest it be marred by rain showers, I am luxuriating in the thought of a dresser full of camisoles, slip dresses, and other […]

Spring is in full bloom, and it’s for a change in lingerie. I’ve loved Harlow & Fox’s Anastasia robe ever since I first laid eyes on it at Spring/Summer 2015 lingerie market. While the brand is known for luxury full bust bras (DD-G cup sizes) and dramatic lace trim robes, to me, the Anastasia robe captures the essence of Harlow & Fox…especially since it’s something that can be worn by […]

Pillowbooks were titillating works of art created in ancient China as illustrated guides in the art of seduction. They were used to embolden and empower, encouraging adventure, individuality, and a love of beauty. It is this love of erotic storytelling that inspires Beijing-based luxury label, Pillowbook. In a series of well edited collections, the brand takes us on a tour of Chinese and Vietnamese locales where love and ambition reign. […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Robes and loungewear seem to have picked up momentum over the past year. I’ve certainly caught the bug, and have taken to wearing silky lingerie robes as luxe cardigan alternatives for daywear. This Fringe Robe in silk chiffon by Norwegian Wood ($299 CAD / roughly $219 USD) is delightfully versatile for such a statement piece. Like many […]

Please note some of these photos may be NSFW. Do dark winter skies have you down? Cheer up! Spring is just around the corner, which means brands are starting to roll out their S/S 2016 collections. What better way to celebrate the season of rebirth than with exceptionally beautiful lingerie done in the shades of delicate blossoms and their stems? Fleur of England has chosen the palest of blush and […]
