“In every housewife’s closet there’s an article of clothing that tells you more about its owner than she would want you to know. It might be a shirt that she despises, but wears without complaint. Perhaps, it’s some lingerie, she knows isn’t hers, but refuses to discuss. Or a dress she once loved, that she can no longer bear to look at. Yes, you can learn a lot about women from what they choose to wear. You can learn even more by what they choose to take off, and who they take it off for.” – Mary Alice from “Desperate Housewives”
What’s in the back of your closet that you’re keeping a secret? For a long time it was a pair of black boots from graduate school that reminded me of walking the sidewalks at of the University. Buried deep in there too is a sari from a friend. There is also a pair of baby slippers and a onesie, tucked away to remember how small my son was when he was an infant and a satin shawl I made and wore only once—on my wedding day. And in my underwear drawer, a sexy purple demi-bra and panties I bought once to seduce a boyfriend.
Maybe you have such a set in your drawer, something lacy and entirely impractical, designed for wearing for only a couple minutes before it’s off and you’re off to your next adventure. This set, from Elysage, is a dream created in Paris by a young French designer. She is just starting out and I expect more from her but I couldn’t help but blog the set she sent after I had taken a few photos for her. The look is minimal, sexy sensuous. I look forward to more.
What makes the lingerie look even more fabulous, of course, is this skin from Ava Grau. Ava stunned the Skin Fair attendees with her set of Anais skins, all so lushly drawn and tinted so that women of color could be absolutely beautiful (and not too brown or orange or red). A short hair from Carina Larsen makes this look stunning, especially with Ikon Innovia’s gorgeous eyes.
