The newest collaboration in the Breathing Fashion universe is with lingerie company Lacy Lindsay, with crystals from The Hoodwitch and photos by Bree Burchfield.
I present to you:
The perfect night inPlans are cancelled. Your perfect “going out” outfit has gone to waste and the bottle of champagne you’ve been waiting to pop feels more morbid than it does celebratory. What’s a girl to do? Not one for the game of self-pity, it seems as if a night in is in your cards. The obvious answer to any Saturday night dilemma is lingerie, lipstick and lots and lots of lace. Why waste a perfectly good evening brooding when you could be fabulous in your favorite lipstick, leaving kisses on a giant glass of bubbly? Dress up and bathe in the glories that make you, you. Grab your crystals and keep them close, nothing says “girls night” like posing with your favorite quartz. Instead of (metaphorically) cursing the boy or girl who ruined your plans, you thank them. How else would you have an excuse to drink out of your favorite chalice while binge watching Sex and the City. There’s a silver line to everything, so you choose to tie a balloon to this line and to float somewhere fabulous and far far away. Here’s the thing. Sometimes people mess up. Sometimes they let us down. But the one person who should always, ALWAYS, have your back is you. Spend your night celebrating everything that makes you the funky, weird, crazy human you are. And don’t forget to wear something good, and take photos, while you’re at it. All lingerie:: Lacy Lindsey// Crystals:: The Hoodwitch// Black shag jacket:: Disturbia// Leopard jacket:: Zara
If there’s a secret to having a happy life, it’s definitely to surround yourself with friends just as strange and unusual as you are. Mornings spent draped in vintage lingerie with stacks of costume rings, stickers on your face, best friends, and iced coffee may be far and few between, but they’re some of my favorites. Finding people like Ivory is a blessing- finding a souls who are always down to take photos and put on green glitter eyeshadow are the kind of people you hold onto. Ivory and I saw these rings and knew that we had to go all out- white fur, crazy jewel tone makeup and loads of sweet vintage.The twin, Alexandra, took the photos, which were so much fun to shoot. We didn’t realize we were unintentionally channeling Grey Gardens until Alex pointed it out- we weren’t mad about it. Happy Sunday.
Sitting at home on this lovely Friday has got me wanting nothing more than a set of beautiful silk pajamas. I’m incredibly comfy in my Spongebob fleece pj pants from the boys section of TJ Maxx, but since I have literally been wearing them all day, I want nothing more than to feel a bit glamorous. Alas, besides a couple Betsey Johnson pj pieces, I don’t tend to look nearly as fashionable during the nighttime as during the day. This is usually not a problem, but sometimes you want to look nice to help make you feel better.
Satin lingerie and nightgowns would be lovely for days when you want to stay at home but still feel pretty. With colors from peach to ivory to rose, you can’t go wrong. Grab some fresh flowers and some slippers and you’ll be relaxing in style.
If you want to feel a bit darker, grab a robe or lingerie in black. Don’t forget some pretty fresh flowers and of course, some Charlotte Olympia slippers.
What do YOU like to wear when you’re sick?
