Come celebrate the 28th annual MayFair in Harvard Square tomorrow Sunday, May1st from 12-6. There will be six stages with live music, hot air balloon rides, and three beer gardens, to mention a few. Don’t miss this always fun event! You will probably find me in line for kettle corn and lemonade.
100% cotton kaftans ($40) in a plethora of prints and colors.
Perfect as a summer beach cover-up or even with jeans…
Mary Green Vintage inspired Teddy ($82)
Mary Green Cotton Cami($34)…matching Cotton Bikini ($24). Not shown, but definitely pretty…:)
Mimi Holliday Fondant No-Wire Bra ($80) with matching Fondant Boythong ($80)
Cosabella Never Say Never Prettie bra ($72) with matching Never Say Never Hotpant ($32)
The Little Bra Company Georgette Bra ($58)
If you’re reading this blog, you probably know that tonight (Thursday, April 14th), we are celebrating our 1st Birthday here at Forty Winks.
From 5-8p, we’ll be here pouring champagne, serving mini cupcakes, and offering up 20% off any one item of your choice.
Which brings me to my current blog post, my suggestions as to what you may want to try on, and subsequently buy, with your 20% off discount.
Jenna Leigh Malawi Bra ($96) in Graphite with matching Malawi Hipster ($60).
Because the “eyelash lace” trend is only getting started and the hardware on the backs of these little ditties is seriously HOT.
Huit Initiale Soft Cup Bra ($68) and Initiale Culotte ($62)
Because who doesn’t love a nude bra that’s actually sexy and because our girl Esther at Pretty Little Underthings says that High Waisted briefs are making a seriously sexy comeback.
Elle Macpherson Initmates Indigo Ray bra ($64) and Indigo Ray Bikini ($34)
Because you just might want a warm weather t-shirt bra that’s also fun to wear.
This baby has summer printed all over it.
Cosabella Never Say Never Hotpants ($32) in neon colors like these…(and so many more).
Because these underwear are perfection. They don’t dig, they lay flat, and they are majorly attractive to look at.
Seriously, you won’t want to leave your full length mirror.
And I’m only scratching the surface of the pretty that’s here for Summer.
Like stellar basics, a completely new and gorgeous style from Elle Macpherson Intimates, sexy new Eberjey Bratlets in summery colors, and sooooo much more.
Looking forward to seeing you tonight!
We’ve reached a milestone today…Forty Winks has officially been open for one whole year!
We are proud and happy and soooo grateful for the support and encouragement that our friends,
families, and customers have given to us over the past year. We wouldn’t be the lingerie boutique we are today without you all.
Below are some “before and after” shots of the space to arouse some nostalgia.
(A lot has changed, but I still drink a lot of coffee…)
Bring on year two!!
