I've always admired Parisian style: the way the women dress simple and elegant. Effortlessly chic is their middle name. Even on a casual Sunday afternoon, they are perfectly put together. Sexy but understated, like a lace bra peeking from a minimalist blouse.
I wanted to re-create this style, and thanks to ThirdLove, I'm very happy with the results! I strolled the streets of Granville Island in what is definitely one of my more casual outfits, but all the while felt extra chic thanks to a little something lacy underneath....
ThirdLove is a lingerie brand that is not only considered luxurious and afforable, but it prides itself on a 100% fit guarantee- and for good reason. Their revolutionary iPhone app will pinpoint your perfect bra size with just two quick, private snapshots. Too good to be true? I gave it a test run, and let me tell you, I was very impressed! I've been sized professionally before, and the app managed to match my size exactly. Oh, and ever heard of half sizes for bras? Yes, they have those too. Seriously this is the holy grail of bra sizing. And when it arrived in the mail? It fit absolutely perfectly (not to mention it looked fabulous)!
I decided to style my Sunday-chic outfit with a casual linen blouse from Old Navy, and infused some of that Parisian style inspiration by wearing my brand new ThirdLove Lace Balconette 2.0 bra underneath. Just a teeny bit of lace detailing and the small bow peeked out.
