Bridal Briefs

By Aimee Guthinger

Touting names like Bachelor’s Button & Forget Me Not, the pioneering eco-friendly, non-toxic nail brand Priti NYC has become a perfect complement for bridal lingerie style.  Similar to the added touch the perfect throw pillow or decorative detail brings to an interior or the conversational charm an accessory brings to fashion, nail color is often the only accompaniment available to help complete our underpinning presentations.  Lingerie is after all best displayed minimally and without distraction.

While the wedding trend remains something sheer or the feminine touch of a traditional French manicure, I spoke with Iryna Druzhyna of Solstice Day Spa located in Hyannis, MA here on Cape Cod who told me that many Cape brides will then choose a color to stand out on her toes.  … Read More

Did you know that it makes little difference whether you are always the bridesmaid or if this time, the bride? There are four essential bra categories that every woman should have in her wardrobe! Each addresses a particular fashion need in her busy day.  And while there are many more than four styles from which to choose, there are specific bras, that a newlywed, or for that matter, any stylish woman, should not be without!

Selecting the right fit goes much further than simply trying on a garment.  … Read More

Like many other areas around the country and beyond, it’s been crazy here on Cape Cod this July! And here in Osterville Village we’re preparing for the 43rd Annual Village Day this Saturday, 7/21 which also means here at Bedroom I’s Boutique we’re getting our parade float ready too!

Specifically how lingerie fits into the pageantry of a wedding and I was surprised when the following idea struck me all of the sudden.… Read More

Sexy, feminine, & uniquely detailed, is this lingerie or swimwear? Perhaps it’s whatever you want it to be! With the boundaries becoming increasingly blurred between ready-to-wear, swimwear, loungewear & intimates I am using the Letarte Swimwear Trunk Show taking place at my store on Cape Cod this week as an opportunity to talk about a modern day phenomena that I refer to as pliant fashion.  This is my own terminology and loosely attempts to describe those instances when a garment offers more than one wearable option within a wardrobe.… Read More

Fifty Shades Of Corsetry

By Aimee Guthinger

So it would seem, like every other woman (and likely a lot of men) in the world right now, I am reading Fifty Shades of Grey.  I started the trilogy as a homework assignment because of the impact the series appears to be having on pop culture, as well as retail sales in a number of realms.  However, it was not until hearing from a friend that an 86 year old male client announced, with great enthusiasm upon arrival to her office, that he was also reading the books. … Read More

I’m spending the summer solstice evening sitting on Craigville Beach on Cape Cod.  With my feet tucked in the soft sand & summer temps finally settled in, it feels like a little vacation out here tonight.  So on that note I am going to take a short break from the last 2 weeks of Q & A to talk about something a bit more risqué; corsets.
