English Romance

When encompassing a very English romance, luxury british design house Fleur of England always present an angle that's feminine and flawless. 

I was never a fan of red lingerie; I thought it was a bit obvious and 'mainstream sexy'.. But then I picked out Amour from my size box at Tallulah and I fell in love with it. The exquisite lace details and the perfect red silk that has just the right amount of blue pigment to make it a deep, gorgeous red became my first purchase at Tallulah Lingerie.

Amour is the ultimate Valentine's outfit.. The Lady in Red! 
The silk is so dreamy, it feel like liquid against your skin.  

Sometimes when I see collections labelled as 'luxury' lingerie, I'm not sure that the label 'luxury' should be thrown around so easily.. Fleur of England however, really is luxurious. You feel it in the way the exquisite textiles rest against your skin.

The dreamy mix of mink and cappuccino colouring for Truffle, from Fleur of Englands' A/W 13 collection is beautiful. 
Many reviews of this collection have said that it's unpractical - I agree in some ways, I wouldn't wear the boudoir bra and tie side knickers under my favourite t-shirt and skinny jeans. However, the padded bra and knickers, which are the same shape as the set I own from Amour I find perfectly wearable as a t-shirt bra! 

Truffle is a fantastic colour as an alternative to a foundation nude, don't you think? When talking luxury, Truffle as a nude padded t-shirt bra doesn't sound to bad to me..
  
And what about the little camisole as you can see pictured above.. I would pair that with a little cashmere cardigan or jumper and some jeans of your choice and you have the perfect casual Autumn to Winter look.. My point is, yes it's luxurious, and yes it's wearable!

Above are a few more pieces from various collections that I love and Tallulah has stocked at one stage or another.. 

As I was saying earlier, the boudoir bra and tie side knickers are unpractical. But, in terms of boudoir wear, as suggested in the name, they are perfect!

The gorgeous bows are enticing and are meant to be unravelled like the unwrapping of the gift. The art of seduction isn't all about the naked body but the element of possibility. Possibility is definitely what these soft ties are suggesting. Undoable bows are definitely the sexiest invitations I've seen..

After seeing the A/W 14 look book, I can't wait for more beautifully delicate, yet gorgeously sexy lingerie from Fleur of England! Lingerie this luxurious will never be un-enticing.
