Etsy is such a wonderful place to come across new-to-me handmade labels. In my search for new lingerie designers I could share with you I came across Toru & Naoko, an intimates brand designed and owned by Camila, an Argentinean now living in Chile. She has such a wonderful ability to take classic, vintage-inspired looks and add interesting design details that it almost pains me that they are undergarments, and not outer-garments. But this is how I always feel about lingerie. My favourite articles of clothing to own/wear are always the ones that feel inappropriate to wear in public – lingerie, dressing gowns etc. I guess it works out nicely that I’m mostly an introverted homebody and thus have many an opportunity to give my much loved intimates their time to shine.
I think if I were to deem one lingerie brand “darling”, Ohhh Lulu would be it. Based out of Orillia, ON (Ontario represent!) Sarah’s designs are inspired by her love of nature and history, and each piece feels very true to her inspiration – a classic, retro aesthetic in gorgeous floral prints and decadent velvet fabrics. They are the sort of pieces that would make any woman feel ultra girly and sweetly sexy, which are all good things in my books.
My favourites: Red Carmine Bralette, Watercolor Bra, Sleeping Beauty Floral Bra, Watercolor Highwaisted Panties, Pumpkin Spice Highwaisted Panties, Sleeping Beauty Hipster Panties, Doe Hipster Panties
