The one big passion I already have for more than 5 years now is Lingerie. Yes, with the big L. Unfortunately the L doesn’t stand for “Low Price”.
My mother thought me well. The first piece I got was from the Belgian Marie Jo. After that, I had to go out for it myself. Weird as it is, since the first piece, it took me about 3 years to go to H&M for that. Weird, because the few female friends I’ve got, told me they started out with H&M.
I have nothing, but absolutely nothing against the underwear from H&M. I just want more. I want some rebellion, I want something fun, I want that smile that goes with it when you are walking around in the city.
I have one piece from H&M that gives me that feeling, but, sadly enough, it’s getting old.
The other lucky pieces? La Fille d’O. An instant smile. First there was the pink collection. Then.. Well, it got a little bit crazy. I went to college, I was a 20 minute train ride away from the headquarters. I still had money from my summer job. Well, you get my point. I kinda went crazy.
A few months back, I had to count all my stuff for that brand. I tried to avoid it. I didn’t do it for 2 months. I was afraid. Ok. I don’t have thousands and thousands of those things, but I have more Lingerie than… the few female friends of my age I have. Thought: I need more female friends with a passion for the big L.
I’m not regretting anything. I still love La Fille d’O. I will still buy A Lot of stuff there. The designer thinks about the pieces. In combination with the body. And the other body. And the smile.
But I started looking around, slowly. The Internet. Damn you.
Agent Provocateur. Like Woohoooww. Those corsets! I’ve been in the shop for 4 times now. Too bad I still haven’t got a piece. Why? Money. Simply that. They have at least 3 pieces I really want to have. They are perfect for me. For my smile. And I will buy them. For sure.
My latest Woohooww on lingerie: Lascivious. A bit more chique, but I like it. But. It hasn’t touched my body yet. I already have some faves, but do they fit me? I will find out!
I have others faves. But I only got a small Wohow from them. Surely, when I could try them out, the big Woohooooww will come in an instant. With the smile of course.
At one point I was thinking about doing a little Lingerie-In-Europe-trip. Take the car and drive around Europe to visit those shops, with a bit of culture of course. I wonder if it already exists…
For about 3 years I’m thinking about some designs for my own “collection”. With the word collection I mean: underwear only for me, that gives me a fun smile and that could make a head go wild. Since I have my sewing machine, those thoughts keep on getting stronger. First I’ll make the fun-throw-it-away-after-a-month-and-start-over pieces, after that I hope I can make the crazy shit. And after that, I will only wear my own smiling stuff! Yeah!
So in a few years, when you see me smiling on the streets, you know I made a dream come true.
