Swirly

1 03 2010

When Sascha Frangilli passed me one of her newest releases for review, the name perplexed me a bit.  An outfit that consists of black and houndstooth doesn’t immediately bring the word swirly to mind.  But once I got into the folders and saw the sheer number of mix and match possibilities, I understood a bit better.  Yes, my mind was swirling with all of the style options that Swirly offers you and I had a lot of fun putting different looks together.  For my first look, I wanted to contrast the classic houndstooth pattern of the jacket with a very modern twist.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #5

28 12 2009

The end of the year is a time to reflect back on the past and look forward to the future.  To that end, there are lots of lists…top ten moments, top ten books, etc.  Since I’ve not done a “Week of Lingerie” in quite some time, I thought it would be fun to take this week and look back at my favorite lingerie sets of 2009.  Starting today, I’ll showcase one set each day for five days.

We begin our countdown at #5 with Version 12 by WTW.
