black lace


Did you have a nice valentine's day?  While I'm madly in love with my husband (yes, even after 12 years together, knock on wood) we've never really been into this holiday.  Still, I'm not above an extra little dose of black lace, and any excuse is a good one.

Details, details...

I picked up these little gems at Oysho the other day (yes, I know I keep talking about it, I just love it, what can I say?).

I love the generous wide lace straps of the bralette and the high waist of the undies.  Basic romantic staples, but slightly different.

    1. Somehow feels extra special when there's a little bit of a twist to it, doesn't it?

  2. Beautiful. God how I love black lace underthings. So. Much. Especially high-waisted.

    1. I'm actually sort of new the world of high-waisted undies, but I think I may get addicted. I sort of feel like Joan from Mad Men ;)

  3. These are gorgeous. I actually have similar bras from Calvin Klein. One in a kind of tangerine shade - sounds terrible - but quite nice actually against my skin tone and another in khaki. I love bras like this in the summer when you get a hint of lace showing when you wear a scoop neck or boat neck tee. Also if you have little cami tops with shoestring straps, even wearing this kind of bra with them gives it a kind of twist and becomes part of the detail. Off to Oysho!

    1. Totally with you on the scoop/boatneck with these straps, but I hadn't even thought of a spaghetti strap cami with this bra! Possibly because it's still grey and rainy and wintery here and I can't even begin to contemplate such skimpiness. Regardless, that is a very intriguing idea, remind me to play with it come April...
