I think one of my favourite things on the planet is lingerie. It’s delicate, feminine, romantic and simply beautiful.
I was one of those girls who bought lingerie for myself because of how pretty it made me feel. I love how the lace, intricate detailing and soft fabric just makes you feel beautiful. While I was obsessed with Victoria Secret I have gone to the dark side where I have been obsessed with bralettes instead of push-up bras. I think my clothes fit better when I’m wearing unpadded lingerie but that’s just a personal preference.
Somewhere along the line I have become this hopeless romantic. I daydream of making myself coffee in the mornings in a sultry outfit, with a flowing kimono, sitting beside a window looking out onto the rain or snow. I’m wearing it for no one but myself and I feel gorgeous. These are the sort of daydreams I have on the regular now since soon I will be moving into a new home (so excited and scared!). And with a new home means a new look, new adventure and some new lingerie that I can slink around in while doing some artwork or writing.
Maybe I’ve become this romantic because I’ve always been a reader. Instead of joining sports or attending class events I instead chose to read. Stories of travel, fantasy, dragons, forbidden love. Stories about people who found each other during the midst of chaos. Or maybe it was the fact that suddenly my life because a romantic story when I went to conquer the world on my own when a tall boy said yes to coming to Europe with me. And maybe because it was somewhere in Prague, the most medieval and eerie place I had been yet, was when I started to realize how story-like my life had become.
Whatever the reason, lingerie is just another way to express yourself even if no one but you can see it!
