When I think about Valentine’s Day, my first thought isn’t flowers or chocolate or romance…it’s conversation hearts.

Yeah, those chalky little candies. I don’t know why. I don’t even really like the damn things. (Though I can make an exception if they’re in the form of that cake up there. Those candies are decorating an absolutely delicious-sounding strawberries and cream cake made by Ali at Gimme Some Oven
. I want to eat that. Actually, I want to eat a lot of the stuff on that site…)
Since conversation hearts are my (understandable but a little weird) go-to Valentine’s Day mental image, I thought that today I’d show you guys some gorgeous pieces that come in colors to match them! This entry is going to be heavy on pictures and rather light on information. I usually include shopping options and links to reviews on my Wishlists, but life is hectic right now, as I alluded to in my last post. The happy news is that it’s hectic because my 17 year old sister has come to live with us, but unhappily, that comes with quite a lot of paperwork to fill out, phone calls to make (I hate phone calls so much), and errands to run. Hopefully things will be calming down around here shortly. I am including available sizes here, though. I know how much it sucks to fall in love with a bra and not know if it comes in your size until you investigate further. Best to get the disappointment over with quickly, I think!
Anyway, on to the undies! Continue reading
Happy New Year! I’m super excited for 2014! Want to know one of the reasons why?

Because Affinitas/Parfait gave The Lingerie Journal a sneak peek of their AW14 line, and this beauty is in there! Purple Charlotte, you guys! I’m so buying that!
Purple is a funny color for me. I like purple, but I’m very, very picky about it. It’s not even a matter of liking some shades better than others, though I tend to prefer darker purples (but not always.) I don’t have an art or design background to draw from to explain myself articulately here, but I guess I need the color and design to work together in some mysterious way. For instance, Parfait’s Danielle (AW13) looks fairly similar to the upcoming Charlotte, colorwise, but it just doesn’t speak to me.

Again, it’s not the design; I rather like the “dusty rose” version of this set. And it’s not the color; this is a color I like and I know looks good on me. It’s something about the way that the color and the design work together that unfortunately falls flat for me.
So what purple bras do I like right now? Here’s three more of them, presented in no order and selected for reasons that I can’t really specify!
The animal print edition! And I don’t mean like “leopard print” or “zebra print.” I’m talking bras with actual pictures of animals on them! I’m a sucker for them. Even animals I don’t even like all that much. There’s just something so whimsical about a bra covered with little fuzzy wuzzy animal friends. Sidenote: I like animals, you guys. Let’s get started!
