Coffee & Cream






Today's outfit was inspired by these fabulous coffee  and cream limited edition Andrex® Shea Butter Knickers designed by up and coming British lingerie designer Ayten Gasson. They are launched to celebrate a new luxurious toilet tissue - Andrex® Shea Butter. The Shea Butter enriched sheets, scented inner core and luxurious dark brown packaging is designed to give you a fabulous feeling.

Vintage inspired lingerie designer Ayten Gasson has been specializing in beautiful panties and glamorous bralets for over four years. In that short time, the young designer has established herself in many of the world's most luxurious boutiques, including Bordello in London, Boudiche in Glasgow and Belfast, She Said in Brighton, Lilou de Blacon in Paris, and Oh Baby in America. Ayten Gasson lingerie is also available in Top Shop's flagship store in London's Oxford Street. To maintain a high level of quality, and in the grand old tradition, each piece is hand made in order to obtain a perfect, comfortable, and elegant finish. Shapes and styles are sourced from vintage lingerie patterns to create individual yet exquisite pieces.

I am not usually that bothered about my underwear - basic cottons from M&S usually suffice, I would rather spend the money on outerwear. But every now and again I will splash out on some divine lingerie and these knickers definitely are the most luxurious. Made from the finest silk, they include a Shea Butter panel which gives them an extra silky touch. Not only are these exclusive knickers available to buy for only £10 per pair but £5 from the sale of each pair is donated to the "Look Good... Feel Better" charity. They tied in very well with the coffee and cream theme of my dress, tights and shoes today.

What a beautiful colour combination, they really do look stunning. I always feel that if I feel like I am wearing something good underneath, with that little extra for me, than the rest of my outfit will be good. And oh my, I really do love your shoes :) Hope you've had a wonderful day dear.

I love knowing that what I am wearing under my clothes is just as nice as the clothes. They usually aren't, well, not my panties. I believe in investing in a good bra, because it affects your whole outfit, but I only wear nice panties if the outfit requires it.
