Adoring all things vintage, whimsical and downright quirky

Monthly Archives: December 2019

It’s that time of year again, when we wrack our brains for ideas of what gifts we would like to find nestled under the Christmas tree…
So I’m going to be awfully helpful to you ladies, and infuse your day with some divine inspiration in the form of these elegant, beautifully designed, British made items of lingerie. I guarantee, they will not only make you feel like a bonefide Hollywood screen siren, but if you have one, they will most likely go down pretty well with your other halves. Drop those hints, ladies!

Channel your inner Garbo and immerse yourself in pure Hollywood glamour with this 1930’s lounging robe in peach, £85 from What Katie Did.
What Katie Did creates such pretty colourful seamed stockings from just £10 a pair! I love the baby blue hues.
Satin french knickers, £31 from Pandora’s Choice – coupled with the bullet bra for a totally authentic shape and style (and comfort too!)
Be seen to be chic collecting the milk from the doorstep in the Shelly Midnight blue three piece pyjama set – £79 from Kiss Me Deadly. It includes a pretty cami top, satin bottoms and a gorgeous wrap around robe!
How sweet is this Bettie Page long line over wired emerald bra, £50, by Playful Promises, available from Kiss Me Deadly Lingerie?
Cinch that waist with the Cupcake waspie suspenders, £138 from Buttress and Snatch.
A pretty pink cotton poplin waspie boned suspender belt which is beautifully trimmed with a sweet broiderie anglaise and oodles of frills, lace and satin.

I’m a bit late to the party on this one, as I wrote this post back in September but life got in the way and I didn’t get around to publishing it. That said, this trend is not going anywhere! Whether it’s panda pillows, budgie bedding, polar bear pottery or elephant…well everything, animals are HUGE in interiors. Here is my pick of some lush lovelies I’ve seen around and about….
