I think most women these days wears thongs but sometimes it is nice to change it up a bit. Every time I go panty shopping, I always get thongs and bikini style underwear. To me, thongs are sexy and come in handy to hide the panty liner. However, bikini style panties can be adorable and they are more appropriate when you are wearing a short and loose skirt or dress. The Stella McCartney “Knickers of the Week” are so cute and simple. If you only do your wash one day a week, you would definitely get a lot of use out of these! Each day you are set and you don’t have to worry about looking for underwear on that particular day!
I’ve always wanted underwear like these! I’m not the type that would wear these everyday but it would be fun to pick out that particular day when I did decide to wear them. I’ll admit I have OCD and I love being organized! Underwear that keeps me organized on a daily basis? They’re cute, fun and each one even has it’s own little box. I’m a fan!

I don’t know about you, but I love having cute and matching undergarments. I love going to the mall and always finding a cute little set. As soon as I saw the Stella McCartney “Knickers of the Week” Set I laughed! I would love to own these for laughs and a cuteness factor. Each day of the week is a different color and it would almost seem like a crime if you ended up wearing the wrong day one day. Also, the fact that each pair comes in it’s own box labeled is brilliant.
It’s very hard to find cute underwear these days. I feel like thongs are made in so many cute designs and shapes but for regular underwear it’s tough to find something appealing to the eye. I can never find a decent pair so it’s nice to see a designer make them look a little bit cute. I love these and I would personally wear them, on the right day, if I owned them. Too cute!

Do you know what I hate most about winter? Okay, it’s probably snow. But the thing I hate second most about winter is the fact that I freeze my butt off if I try wearing a skirt. The result is all of my skirts being packed up until the spring thaw! But then I thought maybe I just need warmer tights. Regular tights don’t seem to do anything, the wind just blows right through them. What about these though? They are the Fleece Lined Tights from Plush, a company that is dedicated to bringing us tights and leggings that are both stylish and warm. Fleece lined certainly sounds warm! And after reading some reviews, I think I might be sold! They sound really soft too. I might be begging to wear those skirts just so I can wear these tights! And as an added bonus, these can double as thermals. Simply slip them on underneath your pants on those REALLY cold days!

Wearing a slip is not something I normally do. I know that they were more popular at one time and I remember my mom refusing to wear a dress or a skirt without a slip. She said she felt naked. Me? I think they feel restricting. I love the feeling of a floaty skirt on my bare legs, so why add an extra layer of fabric? But after seeing the Free People Mesh Half Slip, I found myself reconsidering the way I feel. There is just something so alluring about this piece. I love the tulle-like mesh fabric and ruffled edge. It is romantic, feminine, and fun. Nothing like what my mom used to wear! It’s so pretty, in fact, that it is hard to believe it is an undergarment! I think this slip would look great paired with a casual, boho-chic skirt. Simply let the bottom hem peek out for a playful and flirty look!

Summer is in full swing and it’s time to hit the beach! But don’t forget your cover-up! This year is all about cover-ups that are more than just cover-ups. I’m talking pieces that will take you from the beach to the street without skipping a beat. And one of my favorite cover-ups from this trend is the Nightcap Clothing Lace Bell Bottom Pants! The designer uses soft supima cotton laced in crochet to create ’70s beach style that is both casual and chic. What’s even better is that these pants are so easy to wear. Simply slip them on over your bikini for a little stroll down the beach. And when you’re ready to head into town for dinner, pair these pants with a button-down shirt and a waist-defining belt. Best of all, these pants would be perfect for lounging around the house once beach season is over! Not too many cover-ups are capable of doing all that!

I can admit, I went a little overboard with the whole leopard animal print trend last season. You should see my closet. I have at least 11 animal print dresses which I picked up last season, for every occasion, from animal print cotton-jersey day dresses by Just Cavalli and Diane von Furstenberg to a silk chiffon leopard print cocktail dress by Valentino. And just when I thought I was getting sick of this trend, out comes Diane von Furstenberg’s new Love Knot Bikini.

Would you wear lingerie designed by Janet Jackson? Well if you answered yes to that question, then I have treat for you.
Pop star Janet Jackson has partnered with Australian fashion designer Bruno Schiavi for a lingerie collection, named Pleasure Principle. The name of the collection is inspired by one of Jackson’s songs, released in 1987 — Pleasure Principle.
“The collection has been carefully created with some of the finest laces from around the world. You will see a lot of satin and lace combined and rich colors such as burgundy and beige, silver and peach as well as your classic black and white. It makes you feel incredible and offers variety as diverse as the women who will wear it,” Jackson said.
Schiavi said: “Janet and I wanted to create a collection that empowers women and that makes women feel sexy, flirtatious and provocative. We wanted to make sure we captured the essence of all Janet’s favourite colors, laces and making sure that we stay true to who she is and what she loves.”
The first collection of Pleasure Principle includes 14 designs across a combination of bra styles from balconettes, demi cups to full coverage. Sizes will range from a 32A to 44G.
Expect to see them in stores select stores as early as November 2008 across the US, with Australia, Japan and Europe to follow.
