“Blink” Retail: Behind the Scenes with L’Agent

This is a post by way of thanks. Thank you Agent Provocateur for your new collection. Not only does L’Agent look like its a fantastic new addition to your offer, but it’s a better priced range too. Yes, sauce saucy smalls for all!
I would also like to thank you for bringing Miguel Angel into my life. Oouuff. Hello there sweet cheeks. And for the boys reading this, there is plenty of eye candy in this behind the scenes video for you too, directed by Penelope Cruz.
The discerning fashionista already knows how important the right underwear is. Whatever you are wearing over the top, a well-fitting bra and skimpies will not only change your silhouette but most importantly, they will also change the way you feel about yourself, and this will change the way you carry yourself. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the amazing power of good pants.

“Blink” Retail: Christmas Wishes

It’s that time of year again… almost! Now, what did that special person in your life hint that they wanted to find under the tree? No idea? Too much mulled wine in your system to remember clearly? Or perhaps you’ve been too distracted by self gifting when you should have been picking up pressies for your friends and family?

Well, what I’ve been subliminally seeding for that past month or so is the fact that pretty much all that I’d like for Christmas can be found at Avenue 32. This is one of my new favourite super stylish shopping sites. These guys carry some really innovative and interesting names that you might not see on other luxe shopping sites. Each designer gets to create their own boutique style space so you can get a really good feel for what they are all about.

Here’s a little peek at a couple of the brands I have got my eye on, by way of a wee wish list. I’m really into the gorgeous accessories from Bex Rox at Avenue 32. Have a look at the whole collection here. Aside from accessories, my other favourite treat is always posh undies, and Myla never disappoints. You can see the whole collection here. Both brilliant British brands, which is an additional bonus.

Soooo, here goes with my top 6 picks- you know, just in case you’re wondering what I’d like for Christmas, and I have a been a very good girl (mostly).

London Fashion Week: Damaris are “Packing Heat”

At LFW we were fortunate enough to be invited to see this amazing movie which has been created by director, Johnny Green, to showcase the wonderful SS’12 collection for Damaris. Featuring the absolutely stunning Liberty Ross, this movie has some truly explosive moments. Not only is the lingerie utterly enticing, this video is a visual treat. Up until now, this video was exclusive to Vogue, so we are delighted to be the next in line to share it with you.

Damaris have created a really stunning new season collection that features updated variations of their signature peek-a-boo knickers, as well as introducing some amazingly sculptural shapes. The innovative eye popping brights are tempered by sophisticated, classic black options. Combinations of lace, satin, dense and sheer with linear and layering detailing all adds up to a really exciting take on how modern lingerie should look.
