A Little Piece of Luxury

















I have lusted after Agent Provocateur pieces for many years now. But somehow I could just never allow myself to spend that kind of money on underwear - around £95 for a bra and £45 for knickers. I used to indulge in their Salon Rose range for M&S but sadly they stopped the designs.

But seeing this post recently and being literally bombarded with emails from AP for the last couple of weeks, I took another look. By the time I did, the were onto their 75% off sale. So I managed to get myself this little piece of luxury for £20. I just hope it hasn't given me the taste for expensive lingerie.

i love agent provacteur! i am so jealous right now, their lingerie is just so delicate and pretty. even if i had all the money in the world, they dont do my size! xx

Wow! Wonderful! It's one of my dreams as well. I walked by Agent Provocateur in Leeds, but didn't even bother to go in. I hate seeing something I love and than not willing to pay the price.
20 pounds sound great.

Oh, I love this stuff! Like Claire, I can't get it because they don't do my size - but I think it's very beautiful.

It is a cute piece and you got is at a good discount. The other day I bought some at H&M for 10 bucks. maybe it is not as good but at the end, I feel like bras should be practical.
