Sheer Sunshine.

I am excited because i have just discovered French brand

The collection is made up of sheer fabrics
which is bang on trend this season.
There is an irresistible softness with this diffusion line and with
a palette of bright summery whites and fresh mint greens,
and is a sure reminder that
Spring is on its way.

Knicker Mail

I am absolutely loving this cute little Knicker Mail gift idea
for Valentines Day from Kriss Soonik.

What I love about it is, it doesn't take itself too seriously, is far from usual
chocolates and flowers and definitely
makes buying lingerie for a partner much easier.
All in all it is a great little flirty and fun gift to receive through the post.

It seems that it is just a Valentines thing at the moment
but I think it would make a lovely
gift any time of the year.

The Knickers are made from Silk Satin and are
'designed to look lovely on bums of various sizes.'

Coming in three colour ways, and priced at only £29, you really
can't go wrong. And to top it all off you can choose
a handwritten message to send with your
Knicker Mail.

Colours available: Black, Red and Blue.

French Fancies

Ok so not the little pink, yellow and brown cakes,
this is a lingerie and Fashion blog after all and not quite French...
What I am referring to is the new
Mimi Holiday 16 story AW11 collection.

Yesterday I wrote about a decade of Damaris and how
they will be releasing eight new stories.
To celebrate this and working alongside the
tenth anniversary will be the new Mimi Holiday
collection with each story named
after a famous french cake.

So I haven't managed to find out what they will be called,
not that I don't like Mr Kipling's cakes,
but going by Mimi's other story names, I imagine they will sound as
utterly delicious as these preview pictures of the Lingerie.

Adding to the stories will be jewels, prints, darker colourways
and new shapes including a super plunge bra.
As well as this look at for the new low cut silky teddies.

For more information visit The Lingerie Buyer.
or the want to see the older collections
visit the Damaris Website.
