Things that work | Silk and lace

I get overwhelmed by too much choice and too many decisions to be made, which explains why I can be found skirting the deli counter nervously (and possibly walking away hungry) and why our house will be all-white on the outside when the external wall insulation is completed.

While I doubt I will ever resort to a 'uniform' that eliminates the need for deliberations on what to wear - I love clothes too much for that level of minimalism - shopping leaves me frazzled, so finding well-made things that work and knowing that in the future I won't have to wander around countless shops before emerging with the item I need simplifies things.

I prefer my clothes to be made from natural fabrics*, and one of my favourite materials is silk. Currently about half of my underwear consists of silk and lace sets from this range. I don't care that it is a celebrity line; it is beautifully designed and the sets are extremely comfortable and light, so suitable for everyday wear. They are machine-washable, and they last. I am sure there are various other silk options online, but I can buy these locally, which is a bonus, and the old-school department store assistants are always so lovely and chatty.

 *though I have a few polyester pieces that are years old but still look like new, so I don't rule it out


  1. Very pretty. You often post things that I wish I could find in Canada.
    Beautiful and feminine undergarments are essential! For me, it's a secret indulgence beneath my jeans and T-shirt.

    1. Thanks Holly! Let me know if you ever would like anything posted to you. I agree - the world cannot see what we are wearing underneath, but knowing it is beautiful is a nice feeling. x
