Next to my weakness for food, I have one other, slightly intimate, weakness. It is everything a woman wears under her clothing. Something nobody actually sees, but of which we (or at least I do) would love to show… Once it is decent and sexy of course. I am not talking about panties with cartoons or big, shaping, but horrible panties! With a big thanks to the epic Bridget Jones scene. If I had the ability to posses the prettiest and biggest lingerie collection there is, I would walk every day around the house, just wearing lingerie and nothing else. Probably stuffing myself with macaroons all day, with lobster for dinner, since these are my favorites. Nothing would make me more happy then this. Well of course, a nice sexy and lovely husband to be who would actually see it. Not the food, the lingerie… Or take it off. No comment.
For me there are a few magic brands: Aubade, La Perla, l’Agent by Agent Provocateur and Fleur of England. My personal favorites. The magicians in making beautiful lingerie. As soon as I walk in a store, these brands magically attract me with there silk, soft, lacy and sexy pieces. Feeling the silk that is so extremely soft, gets me dreamy. I must look like a complete idiot wandering through the racks of the lingerie department.
But! Wearing nice lingerie actually makes me feel better. It makes me feel sexy and confident. Although maybe no one sees it, still, for me it is my superhero costume underneath my daily outfit. For some women these are high heels, and I agree to them. But since I live in the centre of my beloved city Amsterdam with to many old roads, full of cracks, holes and everything that is just not combining with walking on heels, I am not wearing these everyday. Besides, I am too much of a sneaker freaker and loafer lover.
Back to the soft silk, see through lace and dark but sexy black, lovely white en playful bows. You can not have to many choice! For every one with a hubby, I once saw the quote: ”A well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is for men” I agree on this one for 200%! Which is a small hint for every guy out there. Wear the suit! 😉
