Pajamas are a pretty hot item around here this time of year. Maybe that’s because a new pair of comfy, cozy pjs is what everyone wants to unwrap this holiday season. Below are some of our very favorites styles and designers.
If you’re confused about which PJs to buy, Eberjey’s Gisele collection is where you should start. Whether you go with the two piece PJ set or the oversized sleepshirt style, these are definite crowd pleasers. We promise.
Mary Green chemises are perfect for the sophisticated lingerie connoisseur or the lady who just prefers to sleep in silk. Cut on the bias and made from stretch silk, these lovelies are an easy fit.
Curious about what else we’ve got? Stop by the store for more sleepwear favorites like Only Hearts, Hopeless, Clo Intimo, Beautiful Bottoms, Between the Sheets and more. Happy Shopping!
Lace is an interesting fabric to me. Depending on its presentation it can be sweet or sexy, naughty or innocent. I am personally drawn more to black or darker colored lace myself; I like the dichotomy of possible interpretations. Here are some great lace looks! Enjoy!

Eberjey does a great job of making us drool each month. Romantic detailing, effortlessly wearable cuts, and a dedication to real comfort makes Eberjey truly lust-worthy. The flipside to this obsession is that sometimes this kind of love make our bank accounts ache-ache-ache.
Lucky for our pockets, Forty Winks now stocks a lot more from Eberjey’s lesser priced, yet still amazing, Bluebird Amaya collection. Soft, stretchy lace is the name of this game and we’re all about these cheeky hipsters, thongs, and chemises in romantic colorway. Hello spring.

Meredith and I love Instagram…(follow Mer @fortywinkshs and me @forty_winks_rachel). Obviously our favorite subject is lingerie (or maybe dogs in Meredith’s case!) and we are constantly impressed by the lingerie shots from some of the accounts we follow. If you’re a lingerie lover too you’ll definitely want to check out the ladies listed below. xoxo
Lindsey Mueller, @linmuemuse
Her pictures are dreamy and usually involve the cultivation of lingerie as a lifestyle. Plus she always incorporates the brands we love (like Elle Macpherson and Fortnight) into her shots. See even more of this on her blog
Faire Frou Frou@fairefroufrou
This is a brand that Meredith and I seriously admire for its succinctness, its cohesion, and its amazing use of COLOR. Owner Alison’s shots are always perfect and yet they look so effortless. It’s like she lives in a land of cotton candy and lingerie. Lovely.
Simple and sophisticated, this account is particularly fun because of the inside look they give of their lingerie photoshoots. Plus they’ve got one of the prettiest models I’ve ever seen.
Between the Sheets @btslingerie
Designer Layla and her boyfriend Josh do an amazing job of capturing the behind the scenes processes of their company. From shots of the factory to pre-photoshop glimpses into their new lookbooks, Between the Sheets is a great lingerie account to follow.
Style on the Couch @styleonthecouch
One of the best examples of someone that successfully integrates lingerie into their outerwear repertoire. Rompers, bralets, chemises, and yes even harnesses find their way into Sarah’s amazingly styled outfits. See more here
Ari Dein @aridein
Ari’s gorgeous, lifestyle based account is a favorite of mine because it highlights what I like to imagine as a super glamorous Manhattan life (right Ari?). Lots of fun shots from her office, lovely images of NYC, and beautiful glimpses into her design aesthetic.
It’s no secret that we love Clo Intimo at Forty Winks. The laces are gorgeous, the colors beautiful, and the fits on these little lovelies will take your breath away.
The Fortuna Chemise is especially adept at making larger busts happy. The below is a favorite amongst our more endowed customers who have a hard time finding chemises that provide enough coverage and support. How frustrating it can be to try to fit yourself into too-small cups!
Clo understands this and has answered with a racerback style chemise with stretch lace cups that lift the bust and cover just enough to keep you IN, not bulging OUT. Voila, a gorgeous decollete.

Who else is getting excited about Valentine’s Day?
I love the subtlety of this lingerie shoot. Often styled shoots can feel contrived or too high fashion leaving me feeling totally disconnected from the lingerie. Feelings of “I’m not skinny enough, tan enough, booby enough” run through my head leaving me uninspired and even discouraged.
But not so here.
The bralets and the simple silk robe, plus some red lips and sexy hair (easy enough right?), paint an accessible picture instead of some unattainable “ideal”. I think she looks drop dead gorgeous but in an every-woman sort of way.
What do you think of her simple lingerie looks?
All fall I have been crazy about pretty lacy undergarments in neutral colors. But around the holidays I find myself gravitating toward darker and sexier pieces. So I put my nude bras in the back of my lingerie drawer and am replacing them with some sultry pieces that will no doubt put a little pep in my step.
