Treat Yourself… Like French Women Do

June 19, 2014

Vintage, Lingerie, French, French Essence

 

 It’s that time of year to treat yourself and maybe think a little French.

Summer prices are dropping as summer temperatures rise…

 

I am thinking lingerie… of silk, of lace of all things pretty… of taking advantage of the sales to shake up my wardrobe a little.

French women adore lingerie… and regard it as one of their most important purchases.

I think they are right.

Even on those days when underneath does not look entirely as I might hope… there is nothing that makes me feel better or more attractive than a pretty piece of lingerie.

 

So rather than browsing the practical this sale period, I am re-thinking the beautiful and the feminine…  the chemise and the camisole.

Camisoles often work as my “tee shirt” underneath a blazer… I love that look… the tailored and the soft… complementing each other.

A silk camisole can add that extra dash to an otherwise standard outfit.
