You may be not surprised at all that I have a thing for beautiful lingerie (oh you mean you haven’t seen my Instagram feed)? I don’t know what it is, but somehow underneath all the layers of knits and scarves, a pretty lace bra can certainly lift spirits…wait, did I just make a pun?
I have a special place in my heart for black lace…and I’m thinking it’s probably because I was always told black was too sexy as a teenager – which actually makes zero sense to me because in my mind it leaves a lot more to the imagination than say, nude or pink. And what’s wrong with feeling sexy anyway!? I seem to have a lot of suppressed feelings on this topic.
I’m curious to know how many of you enjoy lingerie shopping as much as I do? Obviously there’s the annoyance of finding the perfect fit (when it comes to bras anyway), but picking out new underwear is somehow a lot more fulfilling than trying to find a pair of jeans…and much more affordable too! Sometimes I feel like when I get that urge to shop (ladies, you know the feeling), a pop into Victoria’s Secret is much easier on the wallet – and I always feel immediately satisfied too. On top of that, there’s nothing to break in (the worst).
If you’re reading this post via mobile, lucky you, I’ve made my top picks easily shop-able with the help of RewardStyle! If not, well I hope you enjoy the pretty pictures…speaking of which, these were taken at the cutest little Airbnb called The Apartment Upstairs in Portland which was seriously the cutest (and perfect for a couple of girls obsessed with pretty spaces to take photos in).
