So sorry I’ve been MIA here- I’ve been getting ready to move into my NEW apartment. Expect regular posting to resume after today!
So, let’s talk lingerie. I adore lingerie. I think there is nothing more gorgeous and feminine than silk and lace and… not wearing real clothes? Yeah, I said it. But lingerie as everyday wear tends to be a fashion don’t- unless you know how to do it right. Take Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character Kathryn Merteuil from Cruel Intentions. The film may be from the 90s, but there is still a lot to be learned from the lingerie-inspired outfits worn by this master of seduction and manipulation.
This bustier from Aritzia is easily one of my favorite tops I own. It is in the same style as Kathryn’s copper and black corset, but the cotton makes it so much more versatile. It pairs well with a high-waisted skirt for a sexy but subtle (or not so subtle… hello, cleavage!) nighttime look.
How about a slinky silk cami? Kathryn’s pale gold top is gorgeous, and so is this silk tank from T by Alexander Wang. I’m super into this top with dark skinny jeans and high, high heels.
Or leave very little to the imagination. The loose cut of this sheer LnA top is trendy, but still reminiscent of Kathryn’s barely-there look. Why hide your pretty lingerie when you can flaunt it to the world? …Or your stepbrother, in Kathryn’s case.
Cruel Intentions is a sexy film with an incredibly sexy cast- Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair. Check it out! Oh, but feel free to ignore the prequel…. and the unrelated third film.
