I’m going to let you in on a secret: even though I love pretty things — sometimes so much that I have to close my eyes if we’re driving through a particularly ugly area (hello, Route 1!) — I’m a pragmatist. In pretty much all aspects of my life, I search for things that are beautiful and functional. Like, I swear James only enjoys furniture shopping with me for entertainment value. I insist on flopping, rag doll style, on every couch I’m interested in. If my feet don’t fly into the air while the rest of me sinks into a cloud of fluffy cushions (the literal translation of “head over heels”), I’m not sold. Pragmatist.
That said, for the longest time I wasn’t that big on lingerie. I guess my thought was that it all just comes off anyway, so what’s the point? Well, as most of you know, I write for other blogs too and one of my assignments was to write about different lingerie styles. That’s when I discovered Claire Pettibone’s Heirloom line and fell in love. Non-sensical, must-have-it-right-now love. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought that you might want to lay your eyes on these lovelies too — if only to inspire a little romance.
Some women insist that wearing beautiful underwear makes them feel more confident all around, and I have to admit that there’s something to that.
What are your feelings about lingerie? Love it? Hate it? Just want some to hang in your window and look at lovingly while dreaming of the next episode of Downton Abbey? Let’s have some girl talk.
Just so you know, Claire Pettibone didn’t sponsor this post — I just really love this collection.
