This weekend my sister and I spent a sunny Saturday in Notting Hill. With an upcoming summer of holidays, getaways and a super special wedding in the family, we wanted to check out a beautiful little lingerie, loungewear and swimwear boutique that we’d recently heard about. A short stroll past the pastel houses and colourful flowers of Westbourne Grove and we entered the emporium of delights – neon ruffles from Chantal Thomass, liquid satin prints from Olivia von Halle, dreamy lace negligees from Loveday London – and all set in girly heaven. We had the pleasure of playing dress up with the beautiful Italian owner, Simona, who will expertly measure you and pick out the perfect pieces that you just couldn’t live without. After wrapping myself up in delicate purple lace from Christies, the most divine printed kimono from Holland Street (which would double up as a fabulous beach coverup…), and the surprisingly wearable latex skirt from William Wilde, we picked out our favourites and left with bagfuls of tissue wrapped delights which I can’t wait to show you!
