Style Inspiration: Lingerie As Outerwear
From the boudoir to the streets, as the weather gets warmer its quite easy to ‘slip’ a slip or bra out as regular clothing. Present state of fashion offers quite modern types of lingerie. Gone are the days of bras in just satin and lace and worn under clothing. And with other staple outfit pieces, there are very classy and graceful ways to wear the bra or bustier exposed, sans Regina George.
Here’s some ideas:
- Wear your bustier as a dress or slightly exposed under one.
- Don a lace bra under a staple blazer.
- Play it up with contrasting materials like leather or knit.
- Match a lace bralette halter with a lace skirt so its not as risque.
- Sport matching earrings to draw attention to your jewelry instead.
- Be daring and let the lace cover as little or as much as possible.
There are so many options. Take a chance & experiment with the trend while the weather’s haute. For more inspo, visit here.

Miracle in a bottle? I think yes.
The story with my love for this little treasure is that it came out of the blue, a-m-a-zed me and left me really trying to figure out how and why I went so long without it in my life/beauty regimen. Lush has always, as it is for many, been a natural beauty haven. I find myself within its handmade aromatic clutches more frequently. While drooling over some of the latest bath bombs, someone pointed out that I smelled like vanilla and if I ever used Lush’s Vanilla Puff Powder. It’s funny because various people around me lately have mentioned my vanilla aroma that’s starting to become something of a signature scent of mine. So discovering this body powder was like “where have you been all my life dahling”.
Vanilla Puff Powder is large enough to last like 2-3 months with daily usage. And a small enough bottle to carry with you during the day. And in hot muggy NYC summer weather, it’s necessary. You can smooth a little bit over your body to absorb moisture from the atmosphere. Lush’s dusting powders contain absorbent natural properties that help blot up excess moisture, to contain it from the get-go. Each formula is different, but the foundation of each are powders like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), charcoal, or other absorbers like magnesium trisilicate or magnesium carbonate. It doubles as a deodorant sans aluminum-based compounds or any other ingredient acting as an “antiperspirant”. It triples as possible dry shampoo also but my complicated curly hair prevents me from exercising that possibility just yet. I’ll try it in my hair when I want to stretch a blow-out. Honestly, I like it the best after a shower when I’ve just exfoliated and my pores are open, ready and willing to absorb this goodness. My skin feels so smooth and silky afterwards.
Can’t say I never shared any goodies with you guys. Seriously get this Vanilla puff powder or their equally superb Silky Underwear powder and thank me later.
