Fleur of England Forever balcony bra, suspender and thongJust when I think that I am top of Fleur of England‘s ever evolving lingerie range, I spy something of theirs on social media that makes my most-coveted list in a flash.  Pure, romantic white – the Forever collection is inspired by coral beaches and dreamy getaways, created from bespoke in-house embroidered tulle and silk satin.

All your favourite Fleur signatures are here; the boudoir bra and the bow tie brief, and there is a wonderful standout piece, the modern sleek fishtail skirt.  The skirt reminds me of some of the mesh styles that Milly NY sent down the runway last summer when inner wear/outerwear was in full force along the catwalks.  With a nude slip underneath I think this skirt has a wonderful dual functionality.

There is also a balcony style bra and baby doll dress which would make a lovely honeymoon or holiday item. This is feel-good-look-great lingerie.  To view the entire Forever collection, click HERE.

Monochrome Me: Reformation Wisteria Dress

Reformation_wisteria_dressThe collection of dresses at Reformation is fast becoming my go-to when it comes to summer basics, for day or for night.  This Wisteria dress is a very well made gown with a beautiful neckline and dramatic low back, a great all-rounder for a capsule wardrobe.  This will work for weddings, garden parties, evening meals and brunches – despite the ‘dark drama’ of the style I’ve not been afraid to wear it at different times of the day.

Reformation have a beautiful series of ethically made dresses, gowns and separates.  Get familiar, Blog Reader.

Lace & Flowers: Lover The Label

LoverTheLabel-dressWork, holiday planning and the inevitable pre-holiday fitness regime has kept me busy and away from blogging this week. American husband and I spent hours looking at some of our favourite European locations yesterday, and I think we’ve found the perfect getaway for some rest and relaxation in September (!!).

There is so much I want to write about the area around my new home and I could pen an entire (other) thesis on my summer sale finds… but for the moment, whilst I gather myself this weekend for a lot of (late) blogging ahead, I’m returning to a much written about brand, Australian label Lover.

I’ve come to understand there is both a ‘look’ and a ‘feel’ to wearing Lover the Label.  If you own a piece from Lover, I am sure you will agree with me.  Synonymous with Sydney chic, Lover staples are tailored jackets, high waisted shorts and of course, my favourite, their lace dresses. Never in doubt of choosing Lover for my wedding dress (Part III of White Magick is now available) I found this little number on Ebay some time ago.  A bargain bid won me this beautiful style and that bargain factor makes me smile even more when I wear it.

Since there are a lot of posts in the pipeline, Blog Reader – here is a little snapshot of what is to come.  Some truly stunning bag designs from Stacy Chan (one of the only designers I want to wear pink for), beautiful bodysuits from Bradamant and the perfect tuxedo shirt from J Crew. Stay tuned!
