Looking for Vintage Lingerie?

I have to say I do most of my shopping online at the moment… time is of the essence and it`s amazing what you can find just by exploring the interweb. Don`t ask me what I was looking for but I happened to stumble across a website called Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers, I wasn`t even looking for naughty knickers but I was pleasantly surprised with its gorgeous collection of lingerie and nightwear.

I was expecting trashy pornographic panties but instead I found a selection of exquisite blouses and beautiful quirky lingerie pieces that portrayed real personality. I could imagine buying some of these items, especially, to suit my mood or an occasion. I like it that they`re fun yet extremely feminine.

With having read that Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Longoria, Natalie Imbruglia and a mountainous list of other celebs are fans it gave me the seal of approval I wanted.

Two of my favourite pieces are the English Rose and Bardot shirts that I could imagine wearing to work with a sharp pencil skirt or sophisticated cigarette pants.
Both are incredibly feminine and elegant yet at first glance you may dismiss them as a simple everyday shirt, but on closer inspection there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye.

The vintage inspired details are beautiful and sexy without trying too hard – understated and refined are the words that spring to my mind.

The Grace lingerie sets one of favourites on this site. It comes in a stunning teal blue, a soft lemon yellow and a mine sage green color, all very unusual colours with the same contrasting pink ribbon detail. The balconette style bra, is inspired by the 1950’s glamour girls and the Grace knicker a retro delight. I love the embroidered rose detail on both pieces, as it gives a vintage feel and especially the low cut knicker style, which makes them perfect for wearing with your favourite pair of low-rise denims.
