You’ve seen her here before, and I know you love her. Whitney from CityClectic is back to give us some much needed advice on her new favorite lingerie lines. Take notes ladies and then let’s go shopping…
As good ol’ Saint Valentine’s Day approaches, some of you might be wondering whether suiting up in sassy garb is worth the effort. In my opinion, occasion or no-occasion, a slinky little number is always a mood-booster (for both you and that special someone). Two of my favorite lines right now:
Blush’s spring line definitely has that vixen vibe, yet it remains playful and vibrant in a young, fresh way.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s* lingerie line for Kiki de Montparnasse embodies a classier feel…sporting this style of skivvies makes me spin off into an Audrey Hepburn world of glamour and poise…and somehow elegant modesty.
Elle magazine asks Julia: What do you look for in lingerie?
JR: I look for styles that enhance and flatter my body. I always go for body conscious instead of trendy. I remember a little while ago, the downtown trend in New York was to wear a bandeau bra that you would see popping out of the side of your shirt. I guess it works for very, very small breasts, but for me, it would just be plain unflattering. So yes, what I look for in lingerie is “femininity” and [something] body enhancing. I appreciate lingerie that empowers women and celebrates the female form. The fit and quality is so important, and I like materials that feel very soft against the skin. Lingerie should feel as good to wear as it looks. I buy lingerie for myself, not even for my boyfriend. I think it is really important for a woman to feel good about herself and buying lingerie that makes you feel good is a great way to start. Even if it’s just for yourself—even if no one else sees it—you know it, you feel it, and I believe it gives you that extra confidence.
I’ll take one of everything.

*Just had to add that Julia is the daughter of famed fashion vixen and ex-Vogue Paris editor extraordinaire Carine Roitfeld – seen here before. Obviously the fabulousness just runs in the family.
