I live far too close to lingerie boutique Journelle than is healthy for my wallet, and I've often found myself at their register with plastic in hand and head hung in shame as I give in to their pretty little temptations, fully aware of the Ramen-and-hot-dogs diet I'll have to take up to afford the damage. Founder Claire Chambers sure knows how to pick 'em. I can't afford even one of these lovely items at present, but my independently wealthy, fantasy alter ego can, and this is what she's after:
Horribly impractical but so terribly beautiful. The Lake & Stars Truce Romper, $252.
I'm pretty sure the Greek goddesses wore underthings that looked like this. Damaris Ophelia soft bra, $160, and bow knicker, $140.
Charming blush-colored, silk-accented pyjamas are reminiscent of Old Hollywood starlets. Myla Claudette Pyjama top, $148, and pants, $130.
