Harbour breezes, soft pink silk, feathers, lace, tassels, rhinestones... just a typical Sunday for me really...haha! Oh well, a girl can wish! It's been such a busy month already; I can't believe how time is flashing past, so taking time for a little luxury is definitely something I am prioritizing - whether it's getting my nails done, giving myself a face mask, or wearing decadently beautiful things.
Self love is literally one of the most important lessons I've had to learn this past year, and it's still a challenge. Be kind to yourself, be compassionate, be aware of what you enjoy and allow yourself to do it. Forgive yourself for not living up to your own unreasonable standards. Remember you're doing the best you can at any given moment. But it also comes from treating your body nicely! Exercising because it feels good for the body. If you need a day to stay in bed, do it. Wear the things that make you happy, be aware of how things feel on the skin and make you feel when you wear them.
And that's why I am so excited to share these gorgeous pieces from Evette Dubois! Not only are the pieces delightful to wear, there is literally nothing I love more than supporting small creative business, especially those in Australia, and especially with a fabulous woman behind the brand. Evette Dubois is Melissa's lingerie boutique, and represents her life-long love of vintage and dressmaking - and represents her passion for vintage lingerie from 1910-1950!
In this post I'm wearing the Elsie May Bralette, the Georgia tap pants and the swoonworthy Lillian dressing gown. The bralette in a size small is a comfortable piece for my 10DD bust, though I wouldn't personally wear this piece day to day, but rather as a lounge wear piece due to the lack of underwire, but adjustable back clasp. The Georgia pants are sweet straight cut tap shorts designed to sit just above the hipbones and fit true to the size guide - though if you're in between you may find it better to size down. I love the little detail on these: lace trim and pearl buttons on both sides. The silk used in all of these pieces is pink, though definitely on the peach side of pink, but are available in blue, black and nude too. I'm sure if you ask nicely Melissa will be happy to make your wishes reality! She also has some other gorgeous things on offer, so make sure to have a look.
