BedHead in the Summer

Bedhead doesn't save itself just for the cooler weather, as anyone can attest after seeing my curls on an August morning. Luckily, BedHead pajamas improve the look substantially.

New BedHead pjs are in pink Carolina paisley and Tiffany blue fleur de lis voile (pattern seen right). The style of BedHead pajamas we're carrying has a t-shirt top and a stretch cap sleeve adorned with a slight ruffle at the top.

These spring colours are in 100% cotton in sizes small through large.

For something a little darker, there is the Midnight Etched Rose Classic Stretch pajama by BedHead. This features the unique combination of the mystery of midnight with the innocence of a white rose.

The Midnight Etched Rose is 95% cotton and 5% stretch material for extra comfort in every stretch and twist. This sophisticated pajama has an elastic waistband and is available in size small through extra-large.

And one thing we can absolutely guarantee is that BedHead pajamas wash and wear beautifully. They never pill and get softer every time you wash them. One pair will make BedHead something you look forward to for a long time to come.

Fashion in Sapphire

We're pleased to offer fine lingerie in the latest colour trends. Sapphire is part of spring's colour story as seen in the Felina Conturelle Fashion 60 design.

The Fashion 60 gets our vote both for fashion and comfort. The Felina Conturelle line is designed with the full-busted woman in mind and keeps it comfortable with an innovative sectional design.

And while innovation is good, what we're after is the look and feel of the lingerie. An easy elegance comes to mind when thinking about this new look.

The multi-coloured embroidery and luxurious detailing ensure sophistication through to an H cup and the matched underwear continues the design.

Felina's 120 years of experience is proudly brought to the Comox Valley by Secret Drawers Lingerie. Drop by to see why this underwear matters.

    Hanky Panky Springs Ahead

    Feel like celebrating the spring with flowers but don't have a green thumb? No problem, the lily pad print on this spring's Hanky Panky have you covered, even if all you can seem to cultivate in the garden are stems.

    The new lily pad print by Hanky Panky is more lily than pad with the pattern accented by an extra-wide, peach, stretch-lace waistband on the thong (seen right).

    The v-shape is signature Hanky Panky in a regular rise. Grab the matching chemise for an extra pop of colour in your wardrobe.

    If prints aren't for you, you might express the rebirth of spring with a thong in one of three new colours now available. From top to bottom we have true blue, buttercup and grass green. We can see any of these hues painting the watercolour of a spring day.

    New Hanky Panky - because everyone deserves the smile of springtime even if you have to wear a charcoal gray suit. Underwear matters.

    LaCera - Cotton Comfort

    Underwear absolutely matters and we relish in fine underthings, but sometimes comfy sleepwear is what you need under the covers and while cuddling on the couch.

    LaCera is a line specializing in comfortable cotton but with pin tuck, ruffle and embroidery detailing that makes you feel beautiful and feminine.

    To the right, is the Batiste, a 3/4 length gown with pin tucking through the bodice, side seam pockets and a flounce hem. Shell buttons and delicate embroidery are special extra details.

    To the left is a breezy, more ornate nightgown with an ivy-floral pattern. Rosy pink and mint green paint the feminine print. Ruffles accent the neckline and sleeves. A more relaxed ripple finishes the gown at the bottom. The ivy-floral print is also available in pjs, which are also sleeveless.

    The best part is LaCera isn't just comfortable the first time you put it on either, their secret is their machine-washable cotton gets softer every time you wash it.

    LaCera adds feminine touches and sophistication to create a new traditional nightgown.

    New Prima Donna Twist - Coup de Foudre

    This week the postman brought us a Twist, a Prima Donna Twist to be exact.

    This is the Coup de Foudre, the new Prima Donna Twist design. The Coup de Foudre mixes comfortable, smooth fabric with a trendy, retro print and contemporary palette.

    In the tradition of fine Prima Donna design, this look flatters the fuller-bosom so we're carrying the Coup de Foudre up to 44 E cup in blue opal. To accompany the look, we're also carrying the full brief, which covers the tummy for a slimming effect.

    Not sure if the Coup de Foudre is for you? No problem, stop by and see us and we'll find something that is.

    Pure Chantelle

    On the heels of the Chantelle Hedona, the Chantelle Pure is new in-store and shares the same understated, smooth look.

    The Pure is part of Chantelle's spring-summer 2011 collection and as in the Promesse design, we are carrying it in golden beige. This clean-cut bra is designed to look seamless under the t-shirts we're all unpacking for the warmer weather.

    This lingerie might disappear against many a skin tone were it not for the shimmering stripes knit around both the bra and pant. And speaking of pant, we have both the brief and thong on offer.

    Chantelle calls this collection:
    . . . a new vision of the French Allure . . . Chantelle Lingerie is simple, yet a staple essential for a woman’s wardrobe. It is the symbol of elegance. With its perfectly proportioned and balanced lines, this modern and graphic silhouette embodies the Parisian style.
    And any time we can be accused of having Parisian style without paying the plane fare, we'll take it.

    New Mary Green - Viktoria

    It's another appearance of misspelling today. Nope, it's not Victoria here on Vancouver Island but the new Viktoria chemise and thong set by Mary Green.

    It'll be a fun and whimsical spring if Mary Green has anything to say about it. Sunbursts of candy pink and deep lavender play against a mikado yellow background, and just for added interest a waterfall of leopard spots dance down your center.

    Mary Green calls this fabric crushed silk, which gives the comfort and flow of silk without the shiny look. The deep lavender, stretch lace on the Viktoria adds a traditional feminine touch but keeps it young with scalloped edges and a bow at the breast bone.

    The matching Mary Green Viktoria thong is stretch lace, continuing the flattering scalloped edge and adding the flirty pattern of the chemise just on the back.

    This sheer georgette chemise is guaranteed to make you feel young no matter what the calendar says.
