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.
The air might not have that Fall crispness yet, but we’re definitely seeing the first of our Autumn deliveries.
It’s the best time of the year!

Delicate and subtle, the Minx bra is all about sophistication.
An added bonus? It can be worn strapless.
and comes in bra sizes for a look that’s perfectly tailored to your body.
The line, and this bra in particular, has a serious cult following amongst our customers due to
it’s wide size range and seriously cool stylings.
If you’re looking for a basic bra with a twist, you’ll want to try the Dame de Paris.

You’ll sleep so soundly.

For those friends and loved ones that love, love, love their fashion, please take note of the long line bra craze.
Why a craze you ask?
Because you can wear these lovelies under your sheer shirts of course!
They’ll love you forever for solving all their “what do I wear under this” problems.
Speaking from personal experience, once you and your sisters reach a certain age, it’s suddenly okay to give them sexy gifts.
Less size dependent than straight up lingerie and wayyyy more fun than the usual scarf/mitten set, these sweetly sexy accessories WILL make them smile.
So after you’re done opening gifts with your family (don’t want to shock your Mum) take them aside and shower them with sexy little ditties from Maison Close.
They’ll thank you later.

Maison Close Noeud Papillon-Silk Bow Tie ($30)
Recently a lovely lady from France popped in for some silk pieces and while she was checking out she spotted the above bow tie…
“Is that a Papillon”? she gasped delightedly.
When we confirmed, she bought three.
Perhaps for her sisters?
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!
