06 Oct SHEER AND LACEY
If there is one thing and one thing alone that a girl can put on to feel like a million dollars it’s a little bit of luxurious lingerie. I’ve always been a huge fan of a stunning under garment and am always looking to feed my obsession by keeping an eye out for new pretties for all occasions. To me, there is nothing more elusive than a little peak of lace and I have to say that I now have this fine art down to a T. Sheer black bralettes under a lightweight white tee or a strappy black bra under a low cut white tank is almost my signature these days and while lingerie has always been traditionally saved for the bedroom, I absolutely adore wearing it both day and night.
Since coming across the gorgeous label SJ Lingerie, I have to say they officially had me at hello. Their entire ‘raw’ range bowled me over for six with its black lace embellishment on a fine nude mesh; looking at every piece was an instant ‘have to have’ moment over and over. And really, when it comes to lingerie you name it I own it: sheer, lacey, embellished and delicate – but the pieces housed at SJ Lingerie are so stunningly unique it was instant love and I officially went to town. The ‘pearl’ range in stunning sheer whites is almost too beautiful to hide and their bralette and thong set is my new favourite for lazy nights in with the boyfriend. SJ’s ‘neoteric’ bodysuit is my new favourite sleeping set but also doubles as a lacey slip that I wear with a black leather pencil skirt for day time.
So if you haven’t already raced over to their website, what are you waiting for? SJ Lingerie is gaining momentum quickly as the lingerie go to as their pieces are starting to become cult essentials that are just too beautiful to be restricted to the bedroom.
