I typically eschew red in favor of more subtle colors when I’m buying lingerie for the store, but the Colette Bralette and Boyshort by Eberjey is such a popular set owing to its comfort, affordability and sweetness, that I decided to make an exception and throw caution to the wind this Valentine’s Day! I think the lovely scalloped edge on the lace and the dainty bow at the center keep this red set from veering into the stereotypical “sexy lingerie” category that so many of us try to avoid. Rest assured, the shop is not going to turn into a velvet-curtained, be-tassled replica of Marlene Dietrich’s boudoir, or anything of the sort (although Jessica did talk me into getting a few *gasp* black leopard print bras from Stella McCartney for Spring ’10.) Be sure to stop by this Friday to check out the new cozy lounge-wear from Keep Me and the elegant silk slips from Erica Tanov. There will be nary a crotchless knicker or rhinestone pasty in sight, I promise you!
