Yesterday was my 26th birthday and I thought I would share with you one of my favorite photo series of the Summer. When I still had pink hair… I decided to mix together some very cool designers and a gorgeous location to create some kind of magic-cosplay-fashion type of vibe. Hopefully, you get what I mean.
One of the things I like the most about being a blogger is to be able to meet and work with so many different people. I have seen all kinds of products, of all quality really. It makes me appreciate the work of high-skilled people even more.
Also, another good thing is that, after some years, I have enough samples to create really cool lingerie-inspired outfits with different brands that have nothing to do with each other but work surprisingly well together. Here I used lingerie from Adina Reay, Maude Nibelungen, and Maguy de Chadirac.
I like to mix textures and styles, and I am so happy that these reds matched well! The top I am wearing is from Canadian designer Maude Nibelungen (now based in NY) and it’s part of a set I have previously featured on my blog.
The pants are from a French Caribbean designer based in London, Maguy de Chadirac, and is part of a fancy pajama set I got during one of their sales for a very good price. I am a sucker for sample sales… That’s honestly the best way to get luxury garments for someone with a relatively small budget. I might review the full set on Patreon if that interests you!
The Fran Strapless bra
The Fran bra followed me on so many summer adventures! I have probably worn it more than any other bra in my wardrobe in July and August. It’s an amazing piece of clothing and I loved how reliable and easy to wear it’s been.
It is very sheer so I was hoping to not flash strangers but it seems that I was doing it anyway. I still think it’s the best bra I could have worn under this Maude Nibelungen top as it’s so small and light (the top). I am wearing a 30G, which is a comfortable fit.
The cup could contain a breast fuller than mine but it sits so well that it doesn’t show.
It seems that I am in between sizes as I also own a 28G and it fits me nicely too. My bust is a bit too shallow for the 30G to fit perfectly, but the 28G is a bit tight. Tricky.
Note that I am a 30FF/G at the moment. I think this bra is true to size.
The bra came with adjustable straps and you can wear it as an halter neck as well. Now to be honest, I don’t see myself wearing it that way. If I want to wear an halter neck top, I will just wear it without straps.
Maguy de Chadirac Silk pants
I am wearing a size UK 10 in these Maguy de Chadirac pants but beware that I had to make them altered by a seamstress as they came up HUGE. And when I say huge, I mean that they wouldn’t stay up my hips. They were so baggy when I received them initially. As if they were made for a 36 inches hips (my hips is 26 inches).
I don’t think ordering a size 8 or 6 would be a good idea because then, the leg part would be too fitted for my taste. So I think if I ever order again from them, I will either ask for alteration right away or know that someone in Montreal will have to do it.
Otherwise, the silk is beautiful and the color is so bright! You can never go unseen when wearing such a ruby red. I think it’s good quality silk charmeuse and the attention to detail is great! I love that the garment is sewn using only French seams and that they used silk covered buttons to close the pants on the side. That’s some very luxurious details.
I honestly don’t know where someone (else than me) would be wearing this lingerie-inspired outfit, but I personally liked wearing it as if it was perfectly normal and functional. I will miss the freedom of Summer and all the weird-cute outfits I have been wearing.
Anyway, today has been such a lovely day and I am so grateful for that. Thanks for your support and all the good things you’ve helped me achieve!
Hope you had a blessed as well!
