I’m loving Vanity Fair’s Fairground so so much this month.
(Oh hello strapless jumpsuit coming down the stairs)
I’m thrilled by how some of these ladies have incorporated lingerie into their looks while still looking sophisticated and classy. It’s a look that’s easy to try and so much fun to wear.
Personally, I’m quite smitten with the sweetly see-through cream top and highwaisted trouser look worn by Bianca Brandolini D’Adda.
And if you’d like to replicate, we recommend the following bras for your lingerie looks.
Perhaps the most perfectly wearable piece of lingerie for underneath sheer tops is the Angie long line bra from Fortnight, a Canadian line arriving soon at Forty Winks. Stay tuned!
We love all things Mary Green here at Forty Winks. Her silks are stunning and so very affordable.
Below are some of the newest pieces to hit our racks…enjoy!
Here at Forty Winks we keep a notebook.
It’s sort of our life blood or as my Mum says, our “brain.” Without this “brain” we would pretty much fall into a deep dark hole of disorganization in the way of missed meetings, lost messages, and haphazard to-do listing.
We go through a lot of notebooks. We’ve got a lot going on and also my penmanship is sort of, well HUGE.
So imagine our delight when Meredith’s Mom donated a slew of unused, journal style notebooks to our cause. Jackpot!
Except that this lucky donation happened a few months ago and now that we’ve blown through the 5 normal notebooks, we’re on to the total freakshow notebook. And while we love weird things, this thing is literally covered in a carpeting. It’s hideous.
At least it WAS hideous. When I arrived at the store this morning I noticed something truly beautiful.
There on the counter, with the carpet cover torn off and a sweet little collage of loveliness taking its place, was our newly adorned “brain”.
Shelby, our wonderful and talented employee, had “had it up to here” with the shag rug and totally redecorated.
She even added a Forty Winks sticker so we wouldn’t forget where we are!
And yes, that’s a dog dressed like a human walking a dog dressed like a human.
See, I told you we liked weird stuff.
We happily welcome Ari Dein to our racks here at Forty Winks.
After seeing the line in NYC a couple of times, Meredith and I finally decided that we just couldn’t keep this loveliness from our Boston/Cambridge customers for another second.
The detailing on these one-of-a-kind pieces is stunning. Something you need to see to believe.
And the way you’ll feel wearing this silk? Like you’ve died and gone to heaven.
Sure they’re pricey, but these pieces have special occasion written all over them.
For your anniversary, for your honeymoon, or just because YOU want to wear truly luxurious lingerie, Ari Dein’s Boutique Hotel collection is exactly what you need.
Treat yourself. You won’t regret it.
Like a couple of proud parents, we’re so happy to introduce the new and improved shopfortywinks.com.
We hope you love the new site. It’s faster, more convenient, and definitely a lot more grown up.
This being said, we’re realists at Forty Winks and we know that there may occasionally be glitches. If you find these, will you tell us? Our goal is to offer you the best kind of online lingerie shopping experience so speak up if you see something out of sorts.
And of course, if you like what you see, pass the site on to your friends and be sure to sign up for our email list. We’re planning quite a few discount codes in the near future.
We hope you love shopping at www.shopfortywinks.com.
