Website of the week
Browsing the Agent Provocateur website yesterday, I was reminded that 1) I love lingerie and 2) it's been a long, long time since the Website of the Week was a lingerie site. So, meet All Things Beneath, a site chock full of underthings for fashionistas. They've got old standbys like Cosabella, La Cosa, and Only Hearts and sexy, fancy stuff from Huit, Leigh Bantivoglio, and Roberto Cavalli. But while there are some sheer things, some lacy things, and some silky things, the emphasis here is on camisoles and boy shorts, with a few thongs and several bralettes thrown in (good news, small-busted girls!). And while I'm always going to require a substantial bra, in my old age, I'm definitely moving away from skimpy thongs toward comfy boy shorts. And who doesn't love camis? The site is simply structured: Shop by brand, or check out the maternity, plus size, or sale bin sections. On my shopping list: this bright turquoise boy short by Beija Brazil; this funky Cosmic Swirl boyshort from Fleur't (worth every cent); this comfy-looking lounge pant from Geren Ford; this casually sexy V-Chemise from Lilo; this sexy cotton wrap from Skin, which could double as a dress; and this gorgeous silk cami from Zara Collis, and its matching brief. Spend $125 (not too hard to do) and get free shipping--and since the site's based in NYC, that means you'll have your new goodies super-quick. Of course, it's not quite as quick as walking over to La Petite Coquette, but there's something to be said for shopping for undies in your undies.
