The Holiday Edit 2018

Hello Lingerie lovers,

It's that time of the year again! 
If you are daydreaming of packing your suitcase to a faraway destination or actually getting ready for your holiday as we speak, then this post is for you 💕

While having a play around the boudoir, I got carried away and started putting together my dream suitcase once again. And after my bridal inspiration of last month, this time I was daydreaming of sun kissed skin and salty hair. 

Have a peek below for a preview of the ideal summer essentials we have in the boudoir!


Went for an Aqua and print kaleidoscope for a vibrant summer vibe.
Cotton and silk are always my go to fabrics all year round but even more when the days get hotter. Natural materials are always a good idea for their body heat regulating properties. 

Bonus, they feel amazing on the skin too!


   

Close up: Don't forget to treat yourself!

We love our essentials when packing for a holiday, sure. 
But don't forget to also add something special 
for your little getaway.
It can be from decadent perfume handmade in France, to delicate mother of pearl & gold jewellery or  even this jaw dropping golden goddess set from Loveday London! 
Anything that makes your heart tingle💘



This little beach number has got my attention. 
It combines everything I want for summer, from the tropical and animal print combo, to the ruffled neck line.
Pair it with a tasseled cotton sarong and this hand woven satchel, and you are ready to hit the beach!



             

And the daydreaming continues with that look!
Imagine floating around in these chiffon & lace trim trousers. Just divine.
Perfect when paired with a long lined bralet 
and sheer lace kimono.



Verry Kerry's ethical cotton robe in this floral print 
is a must have for the summer. 
Wear it as a robe but also great for lounging by the pool.
Aqua silk & lace for this little Marjolaine number, 
for that summery mermaid vibe. 
Pair it with our pearl thong for maximum effect!



          

Demure & sexy in this sheer floral chiffon set. Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot on a hot summer day with this innocent, but not so innocent, look.



Don't skip on the timeless white cotton dress. It is a wardrobe staple, to wear in or out, you will be happy to have packed this little number on those hot humid days!
Thought I would pair it with a silk eye mask and this pretty lilac Wacoal set. What do you think?


And as always, don't forget to pack your underwear!
Those colourful brazilians from Cosabella are a new addition to the boudoir and so easy to pop in one's suitcase. 
More colours in stock.

           

If you need more inspiration or just fancy a play, just pop by the boudoir and we can help you get your summer wardrobe ready!

How to create the perfect Bridal Trousseau


Dear Brides to be  💕

Struggling with your bridal trousseau? 
Let Tallulah help you!


We know weddings, big or small, are a lot of work.
Found the perfect venue? The perfect flowers? Most of all the perfect dress?
Then you need the perfect lingerie!

Think of it as the foundations. 
Trust us, you don't want to get the wrong foundations for your perfect dress. It's a common mistake to skip the practical underwear and go straight to the honeymoon lingerie.

Not to worry, we've got you covered for both!

Here at Tallulah's we love Bridal fitting and will make sure this day is a treat!
You can also book an appointment to make sure you have our full attention. We recommend coming in at least 6 weeks before the big day so we are able to order things in for you.
Don't forget to bring a picture of the dress and even a swatch of fabric if you have it.


Now let's talk about the essentials.

First things first, the dress!

Is it A-line, mermaid cut, sleeves, no sleeves, halter, sweetheart neckline?
Once we know the shape of your dress and the material, we will find you the perfect solutions for seamless lingerie. If you need a bit of structure, the Dominique basques are a delight.
They come in different lengths depending on the waistline of your dress. Smooth or with lace, and all low back. We also make alterations, so it's perfectly tailored to your needs!
Strapless bras are also a very good option for empress lines or bustier.
This set here from Ivette is a top seller with it's delicate lace appliqué and body contouring knickers.
(suspenders come off on all styles by the way!)

   

Then comes the knickers. You will be able to chose from a wide selection of brands for seamless, smooth underwear to the more body contouring options. They come in all shapes and styles. 


         

If you are taking pictures before the big event, you will want a pretty silk slip and delicate robe to get ready in. Nothing prettier than a blush or ivory negligee paired with a lace robe and boudoir mules!

For something new and old, get your pick from one of our vintage lace garters. 
We hand make them and can add a charm of your choosing. 



And now, the Honeymoon lingerie, where all the fun is!
Choose from our wide selection of lush silks and lace items to create a look to remember.
We can also help you select your signature scent with hand bottled perfumes from France.




     

Ivory is always a beautiful choice for your honeymoon lingerie.
And if you don't own one of our pearl thongs already, now is the perfect occasion!
Ivory silk and pearls is always a good idea, trust us.





If you prefer a bit of colour, add a splash of pink and aqua to your trousseau with this jaw dropping silk slip from Marjolaine's 2018 summer collection. 
Pair it with this cheeky ouvert satin set from Loveday London for maximum effect!

      


Pop by the Boudoir for inspiration, plenty more in stock!


Lot's of lingerie love.

What's new in the boudoir?

More and more Lingerie goodness of course!




The snow has melted and the first signs of a glorious spring season are here.
Can't get enough of this gorgeous powder pink and periwinkle blue colour palette in our window.
From the sexy sheerness of Mimi Holliday's new Cosmo pop set to the Vivis lace boleros,
Spring 2018 is looking fabulous!


First on our 2018 must have lingerie list, this delicate navy set from Simone Perele.
It's name, Manille Outremer 💙
A perfect classic for those with one too many black sets.
It is elegant and modern with perfectly mastered details on the straps and tulle trimmings.
You can chose between the delicate embroidered tulle half cup or the perfectly shaped padded plunge.
This set comes with a regular or high brief and a brazilian.

Hello lover 💕 Nymphea set with Vivis lace bolero is a  showstopper.
Padded plunge or half cup?


And now, let's talk about this Aubade set you will need in your life!
Nymphea is her name and she is delicious like vanilla ice cream.
The lace is this exquisite blush and ivory palette that we adore.
Nymphea comes in a see-hrough demure half cup with the classic Aubade cut that we all love, and in the padded plunge with exquisite lace overlay.
Beautiful italian brief or thong to match, adorned with lace edging and sexy sheerness.
This is one not to miss!

Powder pink lace set from Wacoal 💕
And don't forget our new silks!

And last but not least, a little teaser from Ginia silks for those of you "underwear as outerwear" enthusiasts. This beautiful colour block camisole comes also in a longer slip dress and more colors.
They make the perfect outfit for any occasion.

Perfect finish to any lingerie set 💘💅
