New Girl In Town ~ Audelle Lingerie

April 29, 2016

FIORE from Audelle full cup bra and panty on Lingerie Briefs

There’s a new girl coming to town. Her name is Fiore. She reminds me of Pippi Longstocking all grown up, but still delightfully independent and pretty self-assured. She’s traveling here from the UK where her family has lived reputably for over 50 years. I met her recently along with some of her friends: Matilda, Daisy and Lyla to name a few. They were all perky, young ingénues working hard to make their way in a new world. As key members of the Audelle Lingerie brand, these intimates are perfect incarnations of British eccentricity; a composition of eclectic design and fundamental basics.  When I was 10, I had to have every one of the Pippi Longstocking books because each story took me on another adventure that I might never have had the courage to pursue on my own. I was glad to have Pippi’s imaginary support. Now Audelle brings their quintessentially English fit and intriguing lace patterns to this collection of bras and panties. Too bad these bras fitting 30-38, A-G cups were not around to satisfy my obsession as I moved on from Pippi to big girl priorities. Contact sales@milltexgroup.com

Wedding Memories ~ Lise Charmel

April 26, 2016

Untitled-1a

A few months ago, my husband and I were having drinks on the terrace of a luxury hotel here in Cabo called Esperanza. Not our usual activity, we went, mainly to see the venue. Cabo is well-known for its destination weddings and by coincidence, that evening, there was a marriage ceremony taking place at the resort. It got me thinking about the entire bridal business, the extravagance, the energy exerted, and the level of artistry woven into every aspect of the process. The poolside wedding we witnessed was embraced by a magnificent view of the Sea of Cortez. The bride’s dress was woven with delicate lace and live flowers. The reception, outside on a tiered terrace, overlooked a moon sprayed ocean lit by burning torches. Every detail seemed perfect. Certainly, extravagance comes at a cost. However, for many couples, their wedding is expenditure in a lifelong memory.

Every season, I revisit the Lise Charmel bridal collections, because frankly, when it comes to pure luxury, there are very few brands whose wedding lingerie reaches this standard of execution. These designs are keepsakes worthy of investment.  I have known women who have framed their Lise Charmel bridal bras for posterity.  Spring 2016’s showstopper is Love Magicienne, a marriage of craft and artistry created by the famed Lise Charmel design studios. Made in Lyon, France in silk charmeuse, Calais laces, elegant embroideries and intricate guipures, each piece is engineered with the renown Lise Charmel fit as deserving of the dress under which it will live. Now with the addition of the Eprise Talent Guipure collection, this luscious bridal lingerie is available in styles fitting 30 -40, C-H. Luxury has a price, my memories are more precious. Combining the two is Lise Charmels gift.   SEE MORE HERE

Paul & Joe + Cosabella ~ A Joyful Union

April 22, 2016

Paul & Joe + Cosabella on Lingerie Briefs

One of the major reasons I love being in Cabo is the dichotomy of activities at my fingertips. Today, I rode for an hour and followed the lesson with my first ever attempt at archery. Yesterday was weights at the gym and laps in a pool; tomorrow yoga and then there’s always those long walks in the desert. Combining these sedulous morning sojourns (when the sun is not too hot) with long quiet afternoons writing in my garden creates equanimity in my day.  The merger of two divergent vocations completes me.

This alliance of fun with function is the perfect parity for Cosabella’s spring 2016 collaboration with the French design house, Paul & Joe. The marriage brings together the cheeky prints and colors of the Paul & Joe RTW collections with Cosabella’s design and product intelligence. The resulting sleepwear and lingerie is a delightful and sexy mélange of eclectic and feminine sensibilities.  Paul & Joe + Cosabella is a sassy lifestyle expression of today’s contemporary woman. The balance of these two brand aesthetics brings a joyful new voice to the leisure life market.

Pluto On The Moon ~ Comfort On Earth

April 19, 2016

Pluto On The Moon

Besides my love of the Ocean, the desert has taught me another type of tranquility. It’s why I was so enamored with New Mexico when I visited there in the quest for an alternative lifestyle. In Cabo, I have access to both. But I have to admit, the Southwest United States holds a mystique all its own; familiar and relaxed with a culture grounded in the very essence of our country’s history. A combination of sun bleached vistas, bold colors and open space, this is a geography that saturates the senses. One could be free here of everyday noise. This is the perfect metaphor for Pluto On the Moon, a collection of casual separates worn anywhere where comfort and class collaborate.
