I know some of you were into my post about high waisted underpants because I've had readers approach me in real life and tell me so! So that's pretty cool. If I could work a lingerie beat, I totally would. I don't think we talk about the importance of proper underpinnings enough, and I think that prancing around your apartment in your favourite bra is the best feeling.
After receiving a pair of the Rita knickers, Fortnight Lingerie has become my favorite lingerie company, and one of my favourite local companies. I wanted to share these images from the 2012 collection -- I'm so in love with it. I might just have to stop by the new studio Fortnight is opening in Parkdale and get myself fitted for the Jolene. I also really love the collection video and the sweet making-of video.
Also: can we talk about how good it is that the pieces are named for songs (songs that I love, by the way -- "Jolene" is my signature karaoke number)? I love the lines from the songs on the bottom of the images.
Color Collective: Thank you, and I love it too!
sylvie: Thanks! Oh yes, they seem to be great patterns -- I really loved the blouse one. It also had a skirt pattern but I wasn't so into that one.
erica: Oh, I'm sure you've been so busy! If you look at the post there are three more Toronto recommendations from Katie of Thank You, Ok -- the funny thing is I haven't even been to the ones she recommended yet!
EvaForeva: Thank you! Well, I'll have to remake it...
Mon Petit Lapin: Thank you!
Caitlin Rose: Ooh, sparkle binge! That sounds lovely. If you do end up glittering your shoes, I'd love to see them.
sara: Thank you! Make your own, it's so easy (although a little bit messy).
henzy: Nice! I did the same thing when I saw the DIY.
Jessica: Haha, thanks. The rack came from an antiques shop. It was originally a dark green colour that I didn't like at all!
Mamushka Marie: Good luck with it!
Hopscotch: Thank you so much! Hope to see you soon xoxo
Kate: xoxoxoxoxoxox to you.
erin: I like the way you think, lady! They also remind me of a pair of Doc Martens' boots I was jealous of in high school -- a girl I knew bought a pair and she would leave a trail of glitter when she walked. They were amazing.
katie merchant / thank you, ok: Thanks, girl!
Jennifer: Thank you! Oh yes, they would be so perfect for a wedding. And it's so easy!
Elena: To you as well xo
Leah: Well, I do have the occasional failure but I like to share those as well because I think they're funny! Thanks for the sweet words.
kelly: Thank you!
natalie: Thanks! We got it at an antiques shop. I'm not sure what the original purpose was.
Darcy: Thank you!
Grace - Stripes and Sequins: Very cute! Thank you for sharing.
in dreams: Well, we'll see! Oh no, I hope you can get the pattern, and at the sale price, because it really is great (I think!). Thanks for checking in, I really appreciated it xoxox (oh and PS Tidbit and her siblings are in the care of a cat rescue volunteer!)
carol-ine: I know just what you mean... I recently donated about 30 patterns to Goodwill! I have been collecting them for years but I have to be more realistic about what I know I will actually make. Good luck to you if you try it!
hila: That's very sweet of you. For me, it's about finding a balance between sharing what is mine and being okay with it being out there, and being used as "inspiration." I never thought of myself as someone who was particularly inspiring but it can be heartbreaking to see someone take something I have chosen to share and using it as a crib. Long story, but anyhow, thanks so much for the sweet words xoxox
anna of (green gable): I agree, I love the necklace!
kater: Ha! Just from doing the shoes, there is glitter all over my apartment. The best is when Pony nuzzles the shoes and gets glitter all over her lil' face. It's the best.
odess: Thanks so much!
