Pretty pretty panties: The Lake and Stars (maybe not 100% work safe)

Lake and Stars Genius bodysuit

I have a weak spot for pretty, yet financially out-of-reach unmentionables. Labels like Stella McCartney and Agent Provocateur make me swoon with sartorial lust. Most recently, I have been enchanted by the ethereal pieces created by The Lake and Stars. Even the name is dreamy! I love their dusky pastel color palette, combined with light-as-air mesh, silk, jersey, and unexpected details. The silhouettes are vintage-inspired, yet fresh and modern. It's not your typical lingerie.

I think I will dedicate a separate post to some images from their latest lookbook, but for now I'll do a teaser featuring some pieces that I really, really would not mind having in my arsenal. No, ma'am, I would not mind it at all.

Lake and Stars Franklin tank

Lake and Stars Franklin briefs
This "Franklin" tank and brief set is at the very top of my list! Oh, please please please I want!!! I would just live in these in the summertime.

Lake and Stars Truce romper
This sold-out romper has suspenders and a little pocket. A pocket!!!

Lake and Stars bow bralette
From their ballerina-inspired collection. Ballerinas!! How could you go wrong??

Lake and Stars Antidote set

Most of these pretties are out my reach, money-wise, although occasionally they're on super-sale at Gilt Groupe. I was recently able to snag a set; I can't wait for it to come!

Images snagged from knickersblog, Journelle, Bonadrag, and kenyastyle, in order from top to bottom. I'll happily take the images down upon request.

  4. Twila: Everything about the suspenders romper is just too perfect! I love how sheer and airy these pieces look.

    Greer: They are glorious indeed! And dreamy, and perfect, etc etc...

    Aya: I just found that bra on clearance at in another colorway, but at almost $70 it's still too expensive. It's taking every ounce of energy I have not to buy it with my happy little trigger finger, but I think I'd better not... !!
