La Petite Coquette

If there’s one thing that I believe in, it is that lingerie can boost a woman’s self esteem from a 0 to 100. A few weeks ago I was invited by Rebecca Apsan to stop her lingerie store La Petite Coquette, in New York city. To say I was excited is an understatement. Rebecca Aspan is New York’s #1 go to in regards to finding the perfect lingerie. Author of Lessons in Lingerie,  Rebecca helped me find the perfect bra.

La Petite Coquette has been around for 40 years and has attracted many big names. From Victoria’s Secret models, to actors (Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Kim Cattrall and many more) to directors. Aside from having celebrities as loyal customers, the lingerie icon has won Favorite Shop of the Year as well as the Personal Touch Award, both big accomplishments in the lingerie fashion industry.

My experience began with a tour of the shop. When you walk in the store, the first thing you notice is color. The store is filled with vibrant colors with a aesthetically pleasing neon light behind the counter. I automatically felt older than I am walking into the store.

My first stop, was the downstairs, which holds their office and (soon to be) changing rooms. The office consists of the companies mood boards for the next few months and samples of clothing that have either not yet been released or are restocked items. The soon to be changing area has that Blair Waldorf vibe that every girl dreams of having in her bedroom.

The first item Rebecca showed me was a novella slip by Addiction Lingerie. What made this piece so different from anything else you may have encountered is the quality of the material. I have never felt anything so soft. If you want to go for the simple sexy look, this is definitely a piece to invest in. In addition, it is travel size and comes in a variety of color.

Next, Rebecca helped me find the perfect bra. She pulled aside about nine different sets for me to try on. Before coming to La Petite Coquette, I had always just bought my bras online. Now, I realize how important it is to try on a piece before purchasing it. A little tip I learned at my visit, to make your bra last longer, always clasp it on to its last hook. This way, when your bra stretches out with wash and wear, you can tighten the back band so that you can get the same support as you did initially.

I had an amazing experience at La Petite Coquette. I was able to learn how to find a bra that perfectly fits, what color works best for my complexion, and how to get the best use out of my bra. For any woman who is looking to spice up their wardrobe, I highly recommend checking out La Petite Coquette. They have the best selection in New York. Aside from their wide selection, the quality of their products will last your longer than any Victoria’s Secret bra or Oh La La Cherie. Shop my favorite pieces down below!

Open Back Choker Wrap Crop Top

One thing I love about this top is the back tie it has. It is perfect for a night out. The top is extremely easy to dress up or dress down depending on your plans. If you’re going for a more casual look, pair it with a set of jeans. If you want to dress it up, you can never go wrong with a skirt or black pants.

VALENTINE’S DAY OUTFIT IDEAS 2018

Hi friends. I was searching through Pinterest for valentine’s day outfit ideas and I found some inspiration and thought it would be a good idea to do another one since February 14th is popping up sooner than we thought. Not that it’s that crazy of a holiday, but I love curating outfits to help if you are in a pickle decision-making wise. No matter who/how you are spending it with, I hope you spend time treasuring yourself too. Whether you’re single, sort-of-not-single, in a relationship, or many of the other options, know that you are precious and whoever you are spending it with is very lucky to have you in their life.

Fall Essential Sweaters

I’m in major denial that summer is over! This whole year has flown by, it’s crazy! This time of year is my favorite for fashion when you start to mix summer favorites with new fall finds. The good thing about fall coming is you can break out your big comfy sweaters and layer them with pretty much anything. Here are some of my  favorite fall-must-haves sweaters for this season. Enjoy! x
