A More Reserved Time
On a trip to Montreal last weekend, my mom visited a very dear friend of ours who gave her some of her mother's wedding night lingerie to give to me for the store. I am so touched and can't get over how beautiful the pieces are. Maybe it's me romanticizing the past but there is something so classy and elegant about vintage lingerie that you just don't find in modern day lingerie. It could be that we are so overtly sexual these days that lingerie reflects that attitude whereas in the past sex was not to be discussed and the lingerie certainly has a more innocent and slightly reserved look. I love the pastel colours and the intricate stitching in these pieces.
