Pear Trees blooming in Stamford Ct photographed by Ellen Lewis on Lingerie BriefsThere is something almost poetic about the flowering pears outside my bedroom window and the way they juxtapose with the naked bark of every other tree on the street.  Clearly we are finally at the fulcrum of winter’s last breath and springs rebirth.  It’s the dichotomy that intrigues me.  The clarity of light and the crystal blue skies belie the frost bitten nights.  The earth remains brown and wet even as daffodils and forsythia etch … Read More

Revelation-Navy-Light-Blue-Full-Cup-Plunge-12R321Last fall when Simone Pérèle introduced Révélation to the market, I thought it was an interesting premise, interesting enough to actually write a story about this sumptuous intimate’s collection.  This is the company’s first foray into lingerie sized specifically for a full busted woman.  I thought it noteworthy that this brand, so quintessentially French in its intent, had finally found a voice for the full busted woman.  On a personal note, it has always been … Read More

Recently, my husband and I took a leap and built a home in Mexico, which, as you can imagine, needed to be furnished. We have an understanding about communal purchases: he has very little say regarding décor issues, and lots of input on anything technical.  I am all about comfort and style.  He analyzes every stitch expecting maximum structural integrity at the best possible price.

Today I had lunch with my 89 year old friend, Roslyn Harte.  Roz is still on top of her game as she Rosalyn Hartecelebrates her 58th year in the Lingerie Industry.  A pint size design legend with an outsize heart of gold, she is not one to mince words and is a force to be reckoned with.
