Oysho & Topshop - Black Sequinned Lingerie

Topshop and Oysho don't seem too keen on matching sets - I recently spotted this gorgeous black sequin bra in Oysho's online store for just £19.99 which is definitely unique, but the only 'matching' item available was a plain tulle brief that was, unsurprisingly, actually designed to be teamed with a different, plainer bra. Not to worry, as I have just found these stunning black sequin knickers from Topshop for £45, again with no matching bra on offer - they're pricey, but they're a perfect match

Oysho black sequinned balconette bra, £19.99
Topshop black sequin knickers, £45.00

By the way, have you noticed how similar these two companies' logos are? It's a perfect matching set ;)

If the Topshop knickers are a bit out of your price range I sell a cheaper but equally sparkly version over at Esty Lingerie - the Leg Avenue black sequin boyshorts are less than half the price at £19.99!

Luxury lingerie picks from Topshop

Topshop is by far my favourite retailer on the high-street - their clothes are beautiful, there are hundreds of new products in store every week (literally) and they might be more expensive than H&M but it's still definitely affordable. A trip to Topshop is the perfect luxury treat to myself every time I have a bit of spending money! I've never bought anything from their lingerie line because they (very annoyingly) don't make anything in my size but it doesn't stop me poring over the pieces on the internet and picking out my favourites. If only they did make my size, this is what I'd buy...

Topshop black velvet & mesh body, £45
 I've become obsessed with teddies (or 'bodies') recently and this one is gorgeous. It looks like something by Marlies Dekkers with that harness cup design and the piping detail makes it lovely and slimming if you're curvy!

Topshop mint silk & black lace body, £22
If I liked the other body, I love this one! Definitely on my Christmas shopping list, this body is made from pure silk in a gorgeous mint colour and, even better, it's half the price of the black one at just £22 - you'd be hard pressed to find another silk body for that price.

Topshop Oxblood satin & lace longline bra & knickers set, £29
Another one of my favourites styles are longline bras and this one is super pretty in a deep burgundy colour with a black lace trim and built-in boning for a structured fit. 

Topshop blue lace bra and suspender brief set, £25
Surprisingly cheap, this gorgeous bra set still looks beautifully luxurious in a blue floral lace with cream ribbon slot detail. The matching brief has a cute frill at the sides and comes with detachable suspenders to complete the look.

Massive lingerie sale at Emma Highfield!

Australian-based independent lingerie designer Emma Highfield has just launched her online sample sale yesterday and already all the good items are going, so if you see anything you like you'd better buy it straight away! She's selling off unique sample pieces and items left over from previous collections so this is the perfect chance to get hold of some luxury designer lingerie at rock bottom prices. There are sets down from around £100 to around £12.50 - yes, really! I've already picked up a couple of sets for myself and what's left is sure to sell out quickly.

These are my favourites but there are plenty more pieces from as little as £5 on her Etsy store...

Custom corset design - black and gold

I've been busy working on a whole collection of one-off designs for various photoshoots recently. Here's the first one I finished, based on a black and gold brocade corset that caught stylist Abigail Ayoola's eye. The brief? 'Sexy thief in the night'. I think it turned out quite well...

I'll show you the photos from the shoot as soon as they're published!
