When you feel the need to dress as a pin-up, you really need to dress like a pin-up. Whether it’s accidentally running into your ex, or purposefully wearing nothing more than lingerie and a trench coat for a current beau, this is no laughing matter. Considering your wardrobe is full of saucy finds from Agent Provocateur and Coco de Mer, maybe it’s time to think outside the lacy, see-through box.
Sugar Lilie Dessous Prives, open tomorrow on W. 3rd Street between Crescent Heights and Edinburgh Drive, is just the spot for finds from little boutiques all over the world that you somehow missed during your last jaunt. The shop is sweet, clean, and with oversized dressing rooms, an area for men to anticipate you emerging in lace and silk, a bubbling fountain, and a tailor in the back waiting to make everything fit you like a glove, Sugar Lilie is the kind of place that could make even the most staunch tomboy feel like Dita von Teese.
With lines like Wundervoll from Germany, HotMilk from New Zealand, Marlies Dekkers from Holland, and local lines like W3, your collection of bras and panties will thank you. As will that current beau. The ex will, as you planned, wonder what he’s missing!
