Friday Lingerie Lust: Fraulein Kink
12th July 2012
Since I am travelling this week, I asked my friend Lindsay of thatjenesaisquoi.com to take over the reins* for this Friday’s lingerie feature. Lindsay couldn’t be more perfect for the role. Her personal blog details her crush on underthings – the things that make her feel beautiful, like she has that je ne sais quoi. So without further ado I hand you over to Lindsay, who introduces you, Blog Reader, to Fraulein Kink.
Crossing “digital paths” with StyleOnTheCouch, in hindsight, was entirely inevitable. Our personal styles overlap as does our affinity for lingerie and Sarah’s style in particular is just SMASHING. But of course, you know this already. I was so flattered when she asked me to write a guest post.
One of the things I admire most about Sarah is her courage to be tastefully directional on her blog. Specifically, she is one of the first I’ve witnessed to wear a harness as outerwear, a feat I think is both brave and undeniably stylish. So, it was only appropriate to write about Fraulein Kink, a luxury erotic accessories brand that mixes boudoir allure with a downtown chic vibe for a stunning effect.
My favorite range from the Fraulein Kink label is the Lascivious x Fraulein Kink playsuit (image, second on page). Three main pieces compose the suit: a collar, set of handcuffs and belt. They are made of patent leather lined with faux fur and are accented with delicate, adjustable (!) small-link chains. Because they can be worn together or separately, the pieces are perfect for styling over outerwear and would really work for any season. The belt would be a great summer statement piece when worn over a white sleeveless but form-fitting dress, but would also be just as edgy and chic when paired with black for fall. Along the same lines, the Tease Me playsuit (third image) and full-of-fringe Justine belt (image below) are both perfect for spicing up an ensemble that needs a little something extra.

Thank you Lindsay! You can find Lindsay on Twitter here and follow her blog here. I’m flying back to NYC this weekend so usual posting resumes next week. I have in the works two collections close to my heart and since we’re on a roll with peplum, another outfit in this vein. Have a great weekend!
