Stepping into fall in Silk & Velvet πŸ’•

With Autumn around the corner, The Boudoir has been graced with beautiful new collections.
And as the weather cools down and leaves turn red, we feel in need of luxurious fabrics and cosy robes.

Nothing better to treat yourself than pretty silks and lush velvet robes✨


Marjolaine's fall line is a showstopper. With a colour palette of deep teal, copper, lipstick red, mascara black and champagne lace, these silks are utterly gorgeous!



 The perfect balance between naughty and nice this slip has the aura of old school Janet Reger with a sexy laced low back, the romantic ruffled hem and the silk covered buttons. 
It always lies in the details with Marjolaine's designs.


Teal silk satin and terracotta lace, match made in heaven!
The new Egerie is a masterpiece, from the Leavers lace to the intricate needlework.
And how lovely would it be with the new wish!πŸ’œπŸ’œ


Black silk and champagne lace Caprice.
This timeless piece has leavers lace features and amazing fit with a dramatic thigh-high slit on the side.
It comes also in the shorter length, and both styles have matching dressing gowns for the ultimate glamour look πŸ’–




A winter staple in our wardrobe is the silk velvet dressing gown from Vivis.
It is warm, luxurious and unbelievably soft. This collection's beautiful colour palette offers steel grey, champagne and raspberry pink.




 And saving the best for last, as usual, meet this showstopper πŸ’–
When one can't chose between  satin & velvet, (I mean we all need both in our lives, let's be honest)
Then comes in Marjolaine's heart stopping reversible dressing gown.
Yes, reversible, meaning two robes in one!
The elegant black velvet side is perfect to wear for a night out on the town, while the colourful silk print will look stunning on a cold winter morning.




Still unwrapping new collections as we speak, so plenty more to try in the Boudoir if you fancy a treat!

Nude lingerie, yay or nay?

Whether you love it or hate it, one thing is for sure, 
nude lingerie doesn't have to be boring ladies!πŸ’œ



Yes of course, we all have particular outfits that will need the works of basics, nude & smooth underwear. 
We call them foundations here at Tallulah's.

But don't skip nude as your everyday pretty lingerie too!

Nude can be pretty, 
Nude can be demure, 
Nude can be sexy πŸ’‹ 
It all lies in the jaw dropping detail work of our brands.

Here's a sneak peek of my two favourite nude sets available in the boudoir at the moment.


Let's start with this A-MAZING Chantal Thomass set.
This one had our hearts stopping when it arrived in the Boudoir.

Influente is THE perfect nude set.
First of all, it is the perfect shade of nude with just enough blush to suit every skin tone.
The pretty details will catch your eye like this tulle bow and subtle stripe pattern.


The sheerness and the delicate tulle has this unique look, innocent & unbelievably sexy at the same time.
The fit is also a winner, available up to a generous F cup, it has been an absolute favourite so far in the Boudoir.

Influente also comes in a padded plunge, matching thong, 
hipster and a retro brief.





New in this weekπŸ‘‡

Say hello to a new Chantelle classic, Pyramide.
This set is a definite must-have and will soon become a staple in your wardrobe as many Chantelle sets have before!

This shade of nude is called golden beige.
Pretty sheerness of the tulle again but this time 
with a striking lace overlay.
The beautiful art-deco lace is completely smooth and is meant to be worn as a T-shirt bra.




 This pretty set is available in a half cup as shown above but also a more generous full cup and padded T-shirt bra.
The matching bottoms will be a heavenly alternative to smooth knickers.
The set comes with a lacy Brazilian (above), retro briefs and smooth knickers.
All with laser cut edge and no VPL!



To finish off your perfect nude wardrobe, this new soft stretch body for what Chantelle calls comfort 2.0πŸ’˜
Soft and sexy in its simplicity, this body is essential to one's lingerie collection in so many ways.





And for those of you who love a bit of sparkle in their life, don't miss out on this golden goddess set 
from Loveday London✨ 
Nude leather and gold embroidery lace is always a good idea.
(only two left in stock, be quick!)


I hope this has inspired your lingerie week πŸ’œ
See you soon in the Boudoir.
Lot's of love!

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 πŸ’•

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 tingleπŸ’˜



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  πŸ’•

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 appliquΓ© 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.
