I hope you all had a great holiday! I’m still recouping from Christmas and New Year’s, are you?
Now is a great time for evaluating, refocusing and changing (if needed), so I’m currently sorting through sewing ideas. I thought about taking a new direction, making something new + different, but I really like the patterns I have now. I spent a long time fine tuning Nina, Noelle and Nicole, and that silhouette has served me so well. So, rather than move onto the next project, I want to stay on the halter bra trend a little longer and add variations. Different backs, fabrics, finishings, closures. There was a recent article on Refinery29 about bra styles for 2016, and the first on their list was “athleisure/sporty”. I agree – I think this will continue to be a big trend. Comfort and style are important to me – I want lingerie that is functional, pretty but not overly fussy. What I love most about this look is that it’s super sexy without being overly girly.
So, these are the pieces that I’m loving right now. I don’t have a lot of inspiration images because if I gather too much, I get overwhelmed with ideas. The less, the better. My favorite is the Fleur Du Mal black bodysuit. So simple, but isn’t it so sleek and stunning? It retails for $245, and I DEFINITELY think it would cost much less to make.
What are your favs at the moment?
