Lingerie Fashion Week: Secrets in Lace!
I was invited to come cover Lingerie Fashion week and as a lingerie lover this was music to my ears! I was even more excited that Secrets in Lace, one of my favorite lingerie brands, was set to showcase their collection along with their Bettie Page lingerie, and Dita Von Teese stockings. SIL has been creating the best vintage inspired undergarments for over 3 decades. That means bullet bras, high-waisted knickers, garter belts, plunge bras, and the sexiest girdles you have ever seen! Out of all of the shows I got to attend for Lingerie Fashion Week, the Secrets in Lace show was by far, the absolute best. SIL stole the show! The models had incredible figures, were styled to perfection, and gave us all a grand performance with a burlesque act. I wanted every single thing I saw on the runway. I also thought it was cool that they started the runway show with a cute video from Dita Von Teese. My absolute favorite looks were the Bettie blue and pink sets. I was also OBSESSED with the pink and black ostrich trimmed chiffon robes. So glamorous! Speaking of glam, I was anticipating this show just so I could wear my new Karen Millen dress haha. It is one of my newest treasured pieces as I don’t have anything like it in my closet. It is elegant yet edgy with a corseted fit and features two different types of lace on the arms, bust, and the back. To compliment the nude and black colorway of my dress, I wore my vintage hat (it has a mesh vail), vintage pearl earrings, simple nude Zara pumps, and my black Kate Spade purse. If you are going to Lingerie Fashion week, I say dress the part!Here is the dress I wore to LFW. It is by Karen Millen <3.
The back is what had me sold. SO PRETTY.Vintage Jewelry and hat. Shiny smokey eyes and red lips.Some more vintage gems and my every day Kate Spade purse.Ok these Zara shoes are great but the bottom rubber came off the heels 20 minutes after I wore them. SmhMy hair was a quick-do with my curling iron. Had to rush it because I was running late haha.
I had my girl Sunny be my guest at the show and we met up with..
…my girl Stephanie who was also attending LFW.

SIL is one of the few brands in the world that specializes in creating authentic nylon stockings from their own factories here in the US and in Europe.These stockings are super sheer which means they match almost any skin tone. I often find that most hosiery companies either have really light toned stockings or really dark black tones. SIL offers such a variety of stockings that women of all colors can enjoy!
