One of my favorite hosiery shops Starts With Legs is having a sale right now! 20% off any order with discount code “20%”! The online shop is based in Australia, but they offer super fast and free shipping worldwide and they also have some really beautiful gift wrapping. I recently got a few new pairs from Starts With Legs, including the fun and bright new Gerbe Nymphea Tights, the opaque and popular Gerbe Futura 40 Tights, Gerbe Parisienne Stockings, and the new Gipsy Contour Panel Tights. The gorgeous Nymphea Tights are super soft and available in Blue or Black and have a velvet like finish with an iridescent look. So pretty! I already have a few pairs of the Futura 40 Denier Tights and they are awesome, and I just got the Purple ones, they are bold and bright and are really durable and well made.
I have the Parisienne Tights and they were so beautiful I just needed the lovely Parisenne Stockings so i could wear this style with a garter! The Parisienne Stockings are sheer black and have a shiny finish with a dot pattern. So sexy! I’m such a big fan of Gerbe, and Starts With legs has a great selection of their products. They’re my go to shop for Gerbe. Gerbe is definitely one of my favorite hosiery brands, and for good reason. Their products are so beautiful and versatile for wearing with lingerie or wearing as outerwear and pairing with a dress or skirt and heels.
The Gipsy Contour Panel Tights feature a fun and interesting opaque pattern on the sides and a sheer front. They’re stylish and fun, and definitely great for wearing under a skirt or layered with other fashion pieces. I like how affordable the Gipsy brand is too. Their pieces make a great budget friendly addition to your wardrobe when you need hosiery for under $30 a pair.
Starts With Legs also carries Cervin, Falke, Pretty Polly and more! Check out the entire selection of stockings and tights at Starts With Legs.
I’ve been swooning over everything from the Amelia Thomas Vintage lingerie line that I found a few months ago. Literally everything is gorgeous. Annie, the awesome owner and creator of the brand, fuses vintage inspiration and luxe lace and beautiful silhouettes. She creates lingerie that looks like it could be a true vintage piece, but instead each piece is handmade to order. Out of all of her gorgeous designs, my absolutely favorite was the Black Lace House Coat. First off, I love the name house coat, so much sexier than just saying a wrap or a robe. Secondly, just take a look at this baby. Pictured above worn with the Cami Knicker Romper, and pictured below is just the house coast in all it’s glory.
I can’t. I just can’t Too much gorgeousness, and have you seen that lace? It’s stunning! Needless to say, all of the swooning and drooling came to fruition when I received this gorgeous piece on a very, very, happy mail day. Annie creates each piece to order, and she even can do custom made to measurement sizing. I have a larger bust, but smaller hips, so I was between sizes, and Annie was more than happy and totally nice enough to create this piece to my measurements. Ah, I need a moment here. This is what luxury lingerie is all about. Not only beautiful fabrics, great construction, and personalized fit, but the relationship between customer and lingerie designer. I hope more handmade brands take after Annie, because not only is she is a delight, she’s beyond talented, and truly artistic and a genius at the sewing machine. I tried to capture the beauty of this piece and photos and failed terribly, so please take my word for it that this piece is one of the most beautiful pieces of lingerie I’ve ever seen/touched…and owned! Sigh. I’m still in awe.
This house coat is completely made of beautiful vintage styled nylon lace with a trim of lace made of viscose and poly. The ribbon waistband at the waist is made of black satin. It has a vintage style 1940′s cute, with scalloping on the edges and sleeves. There is also a teeny tiny button at the bust, to hold the house coat together at the bust. You can see the photo below. The button is sewn into the lace at the bust, and snaps shut, or can be left open if you’d like. The button is so tiny and dainty, you’re the only one who can see it when you’re wearing the house coat, as it’s hidden within the lace.
Are you in love yet? Cause I’m beyond smitten with this gorgeous robe. I also love how fun and stylish it is, and that it’s so light that it could be worn as outerwear. Pair it with a black mini dress, a romper, a swimsuit, bodysuit with leggings and heels. So many different ways to wear this robe out of the house. It’s such a truly gorgeous robe, the lace is soft and when I first slid the robe on, not only did it fit wonderfully, but it just felt so luxurious. I felt like I was slipping my body into a coat made of the richest gold, a cloak of invisibility, a robe fit for a queen. This robe made me feel sexier and more sensual than even some of my favorite lingerie sets. This robe is pure magic.
I’ve met my match. This is the kind of lingerie piece that you add to your collection that sort of transforms it. It makes you look at quality more, it makes you appreciate texture and luxury more, it makes you thankful for beautiful artisans who can take a fabric and turn it into something that makes you smile every time you wear it. It raises your standards, it spoils you, it’s bathes you in it’s richness and leaves you to splendor in it. I am just so impressed with Annie’s work. Her lingerie line is quite new, and her pricing is what you would expect for luxury lingerie, and fairly so. Her designs are unlike anything else I’ve seen on the handmade lingerie market thus far, and needless to say, I am a fan. Quite possibly a #1 Fan. Fan club president, to be exact. I just can’t wait to add more Amelia Thomas Lingerie to my wardrobe.
Oh, in case you want to see it one more time.
I’ve been a fan of Sonata Lingerie long before I became a lingerie blogger. It was one of the first luxury handmade brands that I tried, and one of the first that I ever featured. The lingerie line is created by Sonata, who creates the most lovely designs made of luxury lace, chiffon, silk and more. I’m such a fan of her designs and her color patterns. Sonata Lingerie’s new SS14 “Desire” collection was just released, and though I am smitten with all of Sonata’s bodysuits, I was really drawn to the lovely new Calypso collection. It features a lovely cami/slip, knicker, and bow tie G-string. I got the Calypso Slip and the G-string, and they are gorgeous. Made of juicy bright coral and a pink-peach color. So pretty!
The Calypso Slip is more of what I would call a camisole. It just barely covers your bottom and it’s made of a flowing sheer silk chiffon with light pink silk satin trim around the bottom and along the neckline. One strap is a fixed strap, and the other is a bow tie closure, so you can tie it closed. Cute! The slip has a very relaxed fit and it’s light and breezy and so great for Spring/Summer! The color is bright and bold and really so very nice, it reminds me of a fruity sorbet! The cami fits true to size if not generously. I think mine is a size Medium and it very easily fits my 34FF bust. Each piece is made to order and is available in sizes XS-XL.
The colorway is walled watermelon and pale pink. The pale pink has some peachy-coral color to it, especially when paired next to the coral chiffon. This cami/slip is definitely a great addition to Sonata’s Spring/Summer collection! The Calypso G-string knicker, is basically a bow-tie thong with an ouvert bottom. They’re sexy and cute, made of silk satin that is really soft and nice to the touch.
I find that Sonata panties tend to run a bit small, so if you’re in between sizes, definitely size up. This G-string is available in sizes XS-L. It has a bit of stretch, but not a lot since it’s made of a mostly non-stretch silk satin. The color is pretty and bright, with G-string coverage, the back of the panty is open, and there are silk satin ties along the back, to tie the panty closed, or untie is for a sexy little peek at your rear when getting undressed. This G-string is so nice paired with the lovely Slip to make a colorful and fun lingerie set for the warm months to come!
*Special thanks to Sonata for sending me this set for review for my birthday!
