The Lake & Stars

I am to lingerie as Carrie Bradshaw is to shoes.  Rather than spending my hard earned cash on Manolos and Louboutins, I will continue to wear the same shoes and instead head straight for Agent Provocateur!  I’m actually so obsessed that I find it very hard to get dressed without wearing matching underwear.

A recent discovery is The Lake & Stars, a lingerie brand designed by Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman.  The brand is named after a Victorian euphemism for a woman’s skill in the bedroom and certainly reflects this sense of fun and sexiness!  The lingerie has been featured in Bazaar, W and Vogue and also can be seen on Carrie in the Sex and The City movie.

The Lake & Stars don’t make practical everyday underwear.  It’s frothy and frivolous, just the kind of thing to cheer you up and make you feel gorgeously feminine and glamorous.  I am a firm believer that every woman owes it to herself to have beautiful underwear; in my mind it’s the sartorial equivalent of an antidepressant!

Unfortunately I can’t find The Lake & Stars in any retail outlets in Ireland but it is available to order online at Boudiche.
