Freya Swim: Coral Bay Combo

Bikini season made its grand arrival here in the UK last month when the unusually hot heatwave turned up on our doorsteps.  And when the mercury climbs into the sweltering 30s you know it’s unarguable: it’s time to bust out the bikinis. *PR Gifted Amidst the current trends leaning heavily toward garish geometrics and busy botanical prints, it’s nice to find something a little sweeter.  Florals are still big business, and one sure way to pretty

Wedding OOTD: The Lindy Bop Bride Haul

They say the fun is all in the wedding dress shopping, and it’s true!  While I had a vague idea what type of dress I wanted to wear on my big day, I had a fantastic time Pinteresting ideas for my dream dress, and I found it pretty quick.  But as much time I spent dress hunting I’m pretty sure I spent even longer shopping everything else in my wedding wardrobe.  A personalised vintage style became my

Curvy Kate Portia: Pretty In Pink

If you took a look through my lingerie stash you’d probably be surprised by what I own.  ‘Basics’ in black, white and skin tone are considered the mainstay of any underwear collection, but a neutral colour palette just isn’t my cup of tea.  While some of my essentials are, out of necessity, pretty basic, I find colourful lingerie so much more fun.  Sounds kinda corny, but I feel like I’m wearing the essence of happiness when my bra’s an

Acqua & Sale Swimwear: Ponza Exotica

Trends by nature lead from the catwalk down to the highstreet, so designer brands at the luxury end of the market tend to be at the forefront of bringing wearable, covetable fashion.   I remember the front cover of a glossy magazine last summer where a super model was wearing an amazing two-piece; its botanical pattern leapt out at me.  It was bold yet delicate and pretty, and I vowed I needed it in my life.

Gossard Entice | Floral Bloom and Sheer Delight

I always look forward to seeing Gossard’s latest collections.  They’re one of the most most worldwide recognised lingerie brands and it’s all because of their trend led aesthetics and accessibility.   This is true for many other D-G friendly brands too but Gossard have something that’s unique to them only: something intangible but quantified by thrill. Following Gossard‘s sumptuous winter season of ample lace and decadence, it paved the way for the early SS16 collections, with Entice stepping in with

Freya Lingerie : A Botanical Utopia

A new season is approaching; a time for new beginnings and wardrobe revival.  While we’re still only in February and it isn’t quite the time to shed our winter woolies just yet, our lingerie drawers are ready for something a little more spring-like. Right in the midst of back to back crazy weather storms (are you fed up with this wind and rain as I am?!) Freya’s latest lingerie drop kicks winter in its snowballs.  Utopia is Freya’s bright and

SS16 Botanicals: Lepel Lilly Strawberry Print

In a world where lingerie can be overly provocative and femininity is rolled out in lace, it’s so uplifting when a collection comes along that’s simply fun.   The Lilly set by Lepel is one of the brand’s most popular styles; a t-shirt friendly moulded cup in a trend-led fashion design.  This time around, fun strawberry print Lilly is colourful and fresh with a vibrant hedgerow strawberry design – just the ticket to blow away the winter cobwebs.  

The Bridal Basque | Panache Serenity Collection

Bridal lingerie wants to be beautiful for your big day, but if it isn’t functional too, it’s style without substance.  Your design of wedding dress may allow you flexibility in your choice of bra, but exposed and low backs call for something undisclosed. The Serenity bridal collection by Panache is a continuity line that I happened to sample two years ago when I had a bridal photoshoot.  I reviewed the strapless bra in a 30GG where-as today I’m exploring the basque in a 30H,
