i must confess that underwear is pretty much at the bottom of my list of priorities when it comes to clothes shopping. big purchases are reserved for shoes, leather goods… maybe the occasional fancy dress. but undies, those come in packs of 5 and usually cost me less than a take-away dinner. but i still like the idea of fancy underwear. there’s also something incredibly cool about knowing your underwear is handmade (as if you’re a French aristocrat lazing about at Versailles all day). that’s where Egretta Garzetta comes in. affordable handmade lingerie, bras and panties made in Riga, Latvia.
if you’re on the lookout for something special for a friend, sister, mom, girlfriend (or you simply wish to treat yo self) then you’ll be wanting to be entering this giveaway from Curious Creatures. shop owner Larissa makes “curious handmade things” like beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings and even hand dyed silk scarves. she’s also been working on some hand dyed silk tees which i hope to see in her shop soon…
what one might call a massive colour coordinated edition of nice things.

Alison sent me the Spring lookbook for her lovely accessories label Grace. she also carries a scarf called the Diana, which literally has my name written all over it.
