Manicure Monday: Blushing

Victoria's Secret's "Backstage"

Victoria’s Secret’s “Backstage”

Sarah here! For today’s manicure monday post I wanted something soft and romantic. This color, Backstage, is from Victoria’s Secret. Unfortunately, they no longer carry their line of nail polish. It’s sad because they had some really great colors! I’m seriously loving this one right now!

Lovely Lingerie: Victoria’s Secret Simply Sexy

It’s Emily here! today I’m going to be reviewing my recent favorite bras & panties from Victoria’s Secret from their relatively new “Simply Sexy” Collection. These bras are perfect even for those who are a little bustier like me. Us ladies are constantly told that we need to be wearing bras with more support and wires and padding but these bras are sexy, unlined, and still supportive and comfortable!

Limited Edition mesh paneled triangle bra & thong

This was the first set I got. It’s not the most supportive but it’s so comfy! I love the mesh and cutout details and the material is super soft and silky. The back also has cutouts in the back. It also came in a light pink color with black mesh. The panty fits perfectly and extremely comfortable for someone who usually wears undies with a little more coverage.

This bra is super supportive without any wires! It’s basically two bras in one. The inside layer has a halter strap instead of traditional straps. The gold fixtures are such a pretty and delicate detail. The halter adds an edgy detail when it peaks through a slouchy shirt. I love this dusty-rose color. The panties are great and the strappy cutout is awesome.

The unlined demi has the most support because of the underwire and the double layers. It has the same details that I love about the other bras like the gold and the cutouts but I also love the contrast between the white and black mesh layers of the bra.

All in all I think these sets are really great. I am anxiously awaiting to see if they will come out with anything similar for the spring/summer!

Emily’s Pick

ASOS Lace Scuba Body $37.90

ASOS is a great place to find affordable lingerie. My favorite part is the fact that they carry a lot of larger sizes too. I love this body suit! The lace is so pretty and I love how there is a bra so it adds extra support and coverage when wearing it under your clothes.

Forever 21

Forever 21 Floral Mesh Balconette Bra & Lace-Trimmed Floral Boyshorts $13.80

Emily’s Pick

Topshop Satin and Lace Bralette and High Waisted Knickers $62

I’ve never personally bought anything from Topshop, but after browsing their website there are definitely some things I have my eyes on now. I’m a huge fan of bralettes and unlined bras. I wear them more than any other kind of bra. I love the mix of satin and lace in this strappy bra and high-waisted panty set.

Victoria’s Secret Chantilly Lace Merrywidow $88

Victoria’s Secret always has a wide selection of V-Day options, but this piece caught my eye this time around. The merrywidow is a flattering silhouette on most body types and I love the bold red color of this one. The sexy lace neckline is killer! This set isn’t for the faint of heart!

Emily’s Pick

L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Vanessa Non Pad Demi Bra, Suspender, & Mini Brief $208

I love the idea of doing purple for Valentine’s Day! It is something that isn’t done often, but it’s such a  fun color that translates really well for V-Day! The lace in this set is to die for! I love how romantic the scalloped edges and bows are.

Only Hearts Golden Key Set $132

I’m obsessed with this V-Day set from Only Hearts! This bralette is so romantic and the tassels are so playful. I have a weakness for tassels. I also love the contrast of the black lace and the nude mesh. This set is too precious to pass up!
