Under where?

I’m feeling all inspired again 🙂 By underwear. I’m not talking about having your bra straps or thong on display (ewww). Think silk slips, sumptuous fabrics and eye-catching tights. Actually, I think it’s got something to do with the weather, oddly enough. Although I love the summer and the hot weather, I adore winter fashion. Layering, the colours, textures, snuggly fabrics. Oh and I can wear tights again without feeling like I’m suffocating!! Last winter, I was into lace tights, knee socks and brightly coloured tights. I reckon the new thing for tights will be ‘tattoo tights’, I’ve been coveting the amazing tights at Bebaroque for some time now…

On a similar underwear-y vein, I’ve also been coveting slips. I’ve been trying to hunt down a gorgeous vintage slip for some time but so far, the perfect slip has evaded me. There are loads of lovely ones on Etsy, but I need to try before I buy to make sure they aren’t too see through!! Not so hot for summer though, goosebumps aren’t the best accessory for gorgeous ethereal slips! I found some gorgeous ones on Your Slip is Showing which are crying out for layering. Imagine one of the feather slips with an oversize jumper, knitted hat, killer heels and perhaps some tattoo tights?!

And to make our little trilogy complete, a stunning picture oh Doutzen Kroes’ Victoria’s Secret campaign. She looks amazing, I think I love her…
