BlushLingerie_lingerie_1Last month I featured the AW14 collection from Blush Lingerie, a beautifully confident range of underwear from a brand whose mission is “to provide flirtatious and affordable luxury to women worldwide with the creation of sensual, voluptuous and urbane intimates.”

Blush have partnered with StyleOnTheCouch for this amazing Christmas giveaway, where the winner will be awarded $250 (or equivalent) to spend on the Blush line of fun, flirty and feminine intimates. For some ideas, you might want to explore the styles within Blush’s Holiday Shop, such as their ‘Festive Soiree‘ selection; or search for your ‘Perfect Match’ lingerie set here.  Alternatively, select some styles from the Blush Lingerie ‘Essentials‘ collection, such as the multiway longline bra I’m wearing in this post.

Since Blush ship worldwide, entries from all locations are welcome :) So, take a look at the sophisticated style of Blush Lingerie and luxuriate in pin-up perfect lingerie – let Blush indulge you with silky comfort and exciting elegance; lace and loveliness combined with a flair for the naughty.  A perfect Christmas gift for a loved one, or just a very special gift-to-self.  Good Luck!

Lingerie & Loungewear: Uye Surana

uyesurana2It is not often that I find a brand that straddles both lingerie and loungewear styles to produce delicate, comfortable, and modern clothing.  Uye Surana is one of those brands, bringing us both soft lace and satin intimates, everyday loungewear and silk and jersey daywear.

Uye Surana, (pronounced Yoo Sur-rah-nuh) was created by designer Monica Wesley, who formed the brand name from a combination of family names to reflect her Japanese and European descent.  A former student of Parsons School of Design, Wesley creates a romantic, relaxed aesthetic throughout her collections.

Cold, winter weekends provide me with the perfect opportunity to live (indoors!) in these styles.  These photos were taken on my birthday weekend at the wonderful Luton Hoo hotel and spa, a beautiful 5 star retreat just outside of London.  The chance to slow down at weekends is gold dust in the run up to Christmas, so I’m going to get comfortable, and enjoy it :)

Wearing: Uye Surana silk ballet bralette and crossed heart long sleeve pullover. Pants: Zara.

ChristieNicole_lngerie5There are some truly fabulous Australian lingerie designers around at the moment, with Christie Trowbridge of Christie Nicole being one of them.  Creating handmade lingerie from her Sydney base since just last year, Trowbridge’s current ‘Great Escape‘ collection features a series of beautiful bras and bralettes in lace and satin, in summer-fresh colours of white, mint, mauve and polka dot print.  Previously Trowbridge utilized leather and suede fabrics for her lingerie designs which is when I first noticed her – happily she is continuing to experiment with unique fabrics and textures for example the stunning yet delicate showpiece, the limited edition Blaire metal-chain bra which is available for pre-order now.

Alongside the underwear collection sit some fabulous leather and silk daywear styles: the Dakota shortsthe Courtney crop top and the Xana leather biker jacket which I have been coveting for some time.  I’m excited to see Trowbridge grow and develop her collection, mixing inner and outerwear with the ease in which she has begun to shape her brand.
