Top 5 Happy Holiday Gift Ideas

There are 6 shopping days until Christmas.

OK, that might not have been what you wanted to hear, but it really is true: There are only 6 more shopping days until Christmas. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

We’d like to present our top 5 simple gift ideas:
  1. Hanky Panky thongs - these really are the Most Comfortable Thong in the World and best of all, they are easy to give because they are a one-size-fits-all option.
  2. Robes - robes are gifts that women almost universally want and they too are easy gifts because of generous sizings. We have both cheery prints and classic white available - something for every style.
  3. Naked, underwear for men - don’t forget the men in your life either. Give these Italian microfibre boxer-briefs that some men have found they can’t live without.
  4. Pajamas - from classy to sassy, we have pjs for everyone. Sizing tends to be generous, but remember, if there are any problems, we’re always happy to do exchanges.
  5. Gift certificates - when you just don’t know what to get, why not let her decide for herself? Our gift certificates are kept on file so she doesn’t even have to remember the certificate when she comes in.
And don't forget, we can help with sizing. We keep our client's sizing on file, so if you're not sure what will fit her best, just ask.

Happy holidays to all, and to all very, very good nights.

Plaid, Polka Dot and Tapestry Pjs

Pajamas and nightshirts fly off the shelves at Secret Drawers Lingerie at this time of year. Everyone is looking for fun and fashionable ways to lounge around the Christmas tree, it seems. It's not a problem where we're concerned because we have several lines, including Blush, to see you through.

Blush is brought to you by an entrepreneurial family with over 50 years experience in the lingerie business. While they may be known for their more intimate apparel, their sleepwear also does them justice.

There are two other Blush Molly pj set designs: tapestry (seen left) and plaid (not shown). The deep blue and white tapestry design is also adorned with pink detailing.

Pjs not your thing? No problem. These Blush designs are also available in a nightshirt version. The Blush sleepshirts are 36 inches long. All designs are available in S - XL.

To the right is the Kate by Lou. It's a comfortable and elegant everyday bra that both looks great under everyday fashion and on its own. Kate is sleek and sophisticated, soft and feminine.

Convertable Beauty - The Chantelle Vendôme

Bra straps. We sell bras with straps to show off, but some outfits just look more svelte without them. But then you have to worry about how to hide straps with a halter top or a racer back shirt. Chantelle to the rescue. The Chantelle Vendôme is one bra that accommodates no matter what you're wearing.

New in, the Chantelle Vendôme is available in ink in both a smooth and a soft cup. Both designs feature richly-detailed, tattoo-like embroidery on the side and the soft cup carries this motif onto the cup. You'll find a small charm at the breastbone of each piece.

The Chantelle Vendôme converts from conventional straps, to a racer back to a halter with the included strap converter.

And we have the shorty pants to match. The underwear is available in sizes S - XL and the bra is available in 32 - 40, cup sizes B - F.

How to Wear Socks with Heels or Boots

Today we were please to see that our piece on wearing socks with heels or boots came out in the Comox Valley Record. But, in case you missed it, here are our tips:
Whether wearing pumps, spikes or platforms, some women think the only options underneath are to go with pantyhose or with nothing at all, but fashionistas tell us differently. Now it’s perfectly acceptable to show off socks as cute accessories under boots or heels.

The secret to socks and heels is getting the right socks paired with the right heels. Think texture. Find socks and shoes that have different colours and textures – you never want to be matchy-matchy. If you have a solid black shoe, try a hot pink, striped sock. If you have patterned shoes then try a solid, dark-coloured sock. And don’t forget, those socks have to be thin as it never looks good if your socks bulge out the top of your shoes.

Socks and boots are another hot trend. Some women have always enjoyed this look but it’s recently become a fashion phenomenon. And best of all, this is a look where fashion meets function. A long sock under a boot keeps you warm and dry and looks stylish too.

To pair boots with socks think about length and style. Of course, you have to invest in socks that will hit above the height of your boot. This might mean mid-calf socks for ankle boots or knee-high or even thigh-high socks for taller boots. Some socks can be slouched for a more relaxed look while others must be pulled tight to look put-together. And keep in mind, ankle-high boots tend to cut legs off and make you look shorter, so adding a short slouchy sock on top of that might add weight where you don’t want it.

To find a stylish combination think complimentary and not matching. If you have a fun, patterned sock, pair it with a simple boot without a high heel like a riding boot. If you have a smooth, simple sock feel free to pair it with adorned and heeled boots. And don’t forget fun socks with those wellies for the rainy days.

In all, consider socks a fashion accessory just like any other. Invest in colours, styles and patterns to create either a fun and flirty look or a pulled-together, sophisticated and sexy air.

Gain Clarity Daily with Felina

Felina is a family-owned company of twenty years, and in describing the origin of their designs they say, "Inspired by nature, a flower is translated to lace embroidery. The feel of a rose petal inspires the touch of fabric. Color is influenced by vibrancy of a garden or the glow of a pearl."
