it's what's underneath that counts




























Collectors are usually those who seek antique model trains, unique coins and Elvis memorabilia. I on the other hand, am a collector of vintage gloves and pretty lingerie.

It's fair to say that gloves you can go without, but lingerie is for most (or so you would hope) a necessity.
For me however, it is more so an obsession. My obsession has been fuelled lately by the recent trending towards exposing undergarments as outerwear

(http://colourmeskinny.blogspot.com/2009/07/stay-up-with-me.html)


For me, this trend is what I will be living and breathing this season.


Corsets over tees and a subtle exposure of a lace bra peeking out from beneath a slouchy Alexander Wang jersey tee, sends my heart a flutter(and I'm sure it doesn't sit too badly with our male counterparts either).

My favourite items? My Sass and Bide for Lovable ruffle crop top, my tie-die Zimmerman bra and my mesh faux denim bodysuit...pulled (perhaps a little too aggressively) from a sale rack in Topshop when I was holidaying in London late last year.

So if like me, you are a fan of undergarments as outerwear, may I suggest we rejoice, and refrain from burning our bras. Instead let's expose them for what they really are....mostly sheer, lace pieces of exquisite beauty.

  4. I agree!! I LOVE the bra in the top picture... ruffles are an avenue I haven't explored in undergarments yet, but I'm excited to do so :)
