Week of Lingerie – Tuesday

18 03 2009

There is a certain touch of whimsy behind the designs of Shir Dryke, which is what drew me to check out her store Ornamental Life in the first place.  I went there looking for a shirt, but when I discovered the lingerie section, I got a little side-tracked.   One particular piece immediately caught my eye, and I bought it in two colors faster than you could even say the words Ornamental Life.  That piece is called Remembering Chloe.


Now, I don’t know who Chloe is but this piece is certainly memorable.  Shir Dryke has taken a classic corset design and made it her own with a whimsical pattern and interesting colors.  Of course, the fun names help with the whimsy factor as well.  This set, Yang, is a lovely silver piece with black accents.  A very fitting name, really.  It does come in several different color options.  (I own it in a red version too!) 


The back of this corset was one of the major selling points for me.  I love how tightly the strings are woven together.  And I just love the whimsy of it…it’s classic but still fanciful.


Another set that drew my eye was Annyka on Tuesdays, and I snagged this in the color A Passionata, which is a bright crimson. 


This set is aptly named as well, if you think about it.  It’s very…casual and I like that.  Your favorite lingerie doesn’t always have to be corsets and stockings; though I am of the firm belief that there’s nothing sexier than a good corset.  Annyka on Tuesdays reminds me of summer here in the Midwest…you k now those days when it’s so hot you can’t bear to even put clothing on, so you lie around the house in your cutest bra and panty set.  Just because you’re sweltering in heat that you swear hell itself hasn’t felt doesn’t mean you can’t look good while doing it.  Why suffer any more than you have to on days like that?


The dragonfly pattern on this is yet another example of Shir’s whimsical touch.  And I like the lace accents on this piece that tie it all together. 


For fun, casual, and whimsical lingerie you’ll be hard pressed to find anything better than Ornamental Life.  Her prices are beyond reasonable, and all these pieces come with every possible layer option so you can dress it up or down as you see fit.  Oh, and you might want to check out Ornamental Life soon.  A little birdie told me that there’s a new lingerie release on its way.   You heard it here first.
