Everybody loves me, and I intend to keep it that way.

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.

Bardot Bustier Tank ($35, Aritzia)

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.

Silk Cami ($135, T by Alexander Wang)

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.

Cropped Mesh Baggy Tee ($42, LnA), Cropped Lace Tube ($38, Free People)

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.
