Five things that hint at old fashioned underwear.
I’ve been feeling a little romantic. Maybe because I just landed in Paris for fashion week. Since I’m traveling, just a quick hit this week on five things that remind me of the delicate, beautiful things you’d find in a European under things shop. But like…actually available to purchase. And more “inspired by” than actual undies.
Leset pointelle everything
I am angling for the tee and pants. But the cami is great too! They do such great pointelle base layers. I want to lounge in them. I want to wear them under sweaters. I want to wear them solo with skirts in the summer.
Rachel Comey embroidered dress
Like a 1930s nightgown where you don’t actually look like you were wearing a negligee to dinner. I especially appreciate the high neck. So many lingerie inspired things are too low cut for my comfort.
Nackiye floral top with embroidered collar
Can you even? I’ve been saving this photo on my desktop for months, just staring at it. It’s so pretty. And looks so easy to wear! I wouldn’t mind being this lady.
Rosette Cami & Cardi
Bringing back the little crochet trimmed cotton pieces from my childhood. Don’t you get nostalgic just looking at them? I want to be wearing this. Also love the designers’ about page where they talk about how they wear them.
What’s in my RealReal favorites tab
Some treasures I’ve been watching. I can’t believe I’m telling you. :)
Happy Sunday. See you here back next week for a Fall 2023 trends worth remembering report.

The rosette set has been on my wishlist for some time. You’re tempting me to finally pull the trigger 🙃
I sent an email about the rosette sets and got an automatic reply starting "closed for business permanently on September 6th, 2014". But nothing like that on the website itself, which still lists some sizes/pieces as in stock.
