For Love and Lemons

I first came across the amazing, unique brand For Love and Lemons when I was casually browsing through Instagram and saw an image of their lingerie. It was unlike anything I have ever seen and I it didn’t take much for me to become an admirer of For Love and Lemons. I remember reading about the history of the company and it was about two best friends who joined together to create this amazing retail store. I was inspired and even more intrigued with this authentic brand.

I’m a big believer that pajamas shouldn’t be composed of oversized branded t-shirts and printed, cotton pants, or printed, cotton shorts for that matter. Sometimes comfortable pajamas happen, after long days when you’re just too tired to give your night attire a second thought, but I view sleeping time as just another chance to dress it up. Make it fancy. Make yourself feel sexy. For Love and Lemons, I feel you on this!

If you’ve never seen any of For Love and Lemon’s pieces, get ready for your mind to be transported to another fashion dimension where lace, chicness and romanticism all come in one, sometimes tiny, package.

Next, a clothing post perhaps? xx

#OOTD

Ahhh, outfit of the day posts have always been so difficult for me. I become overly critical, almost like I’m editing a thesis. Perhaps even harder than editing a thesis.

Well, I’ve said goodbye to my overly critical self and embraced the casual #OOTD post. Yesterday I purchased this gorgeous skirt from Nordstrom Rack. I was shopping with James and asked him if I had too many high-waisted skirts and he replied with, “Don’t you only have only four or five?” Love hit me hard at that moment.

If I had to choose one fashion obsession, it would be high-waisted skirts. I wear them with grey crop tops, black crop tops, patterned crop tops, sometimes I even accompany them with blouses neatly tucked in, but most of the time, it’s crop tops. The gorgeous dark purple crop top pictured above is from Bar iii. Oh and my other obsession, Angels and Airwaves, a forgotten band from my middle school years that I’ve recently rediscovered and play on repeat.

Goodbye critical self, hello casual lass. xx

Lingerie- part I

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the anniversary sale at Nordstrom. My previous post showed my wish list, shoes and bags, but this post will divulge my wish/need list. When I worked in the lingerie department, I only purchased one bra, which I adore, because I was saving money. I told myself when the sale came, I would purchase all the bras I could ever want. Here are my top picks:

NatoriFeathersBra

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh the Feather bra by Natori, one of my absolute favorite bras. Feathers is a soft cup bra, with no padding and a very low cut. You could wear it everyday. It’s unbelievably comfortable and sexier than the average t-shirt bra.

This photo does not give the bra justice because it’s in basic nude, but the Chantelle “C Chic Sexy” Push Up bra comes in a gorgeous sapphire color as well. The push up isn’t too ridiculous and could easily be worn day or night. I love the intricate design, from the trim to the straps.

NatoriHiddenGlamourBra

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Natori “Hidden Glamour” bra was never one of my favorites, but I cannot deny that it’s a fabulous day bra. You can wear it with pretty much anything. Not much of a lift, but a gorgeous lace outline.

More lingerie to come. xx

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When I worked at Nordstrom, the main topic of discussion on slow days was the anniversary sale. I worked in the lingerie department (I will do a post about how a bra should properly fit, it’s very important. Also a post about how the media has completely brainwashed us as far as cup sizes ago). Anyways, all of my favorite bras are going to be 40% off during this amazing sale.

My mind slowly began to forget about Nordstrom’s, and then I recently received the email. The email that held within it the catalog preview and all of the amazing attire, shoes and bras that would be going on sale. I now have a reminder on my phone to go off two days in advance about the sale, and I have been mindfully saving money for my mini shopping spree.

What’s on my list?
