Wouldn’t a nice Mediterranean cruise be just the thing right now?
Well, even if you that’s too much indulgence for one little pocketbook, you can still escape the winter blues with this ultra-feminine, vintage-inspired collection from Shell Belle Couture.
Designer Michelle Blenkinsopp’s Spring/Summer 2011 Voyage collection is full of irresistible pieces referencing luxury travel of the ‘30s — so you can savor the romance of the journey without leaving home.
The finest silks, tulles and lace in soft tones of pink champagne, pistachio, crème brulée and sepia rose add romance to the retro-but-sophisticated collection that combines swimwear, lingerie, and dressing gowns and slips. Shell Belle Couture aficionados slip into this lingerie and transform into starlets of Hollywood’s golden years. (Starlets who vacation on yachts, naturally.)
Seek an endless summer in the ruffles, sheerness and lightweight frills of Shell Belle’s newest line. Lounge in a sheer figure-skimming Seduce Me gown that conjures the romance of the days of yore, or chase the sun in a swimsuit that will transform you into a saucy-but-not-too-naughty pin-up girl. (And yes, you can wear that same swimsuit in the bedroom.) And if you don’t subscribe to the thongs-are-sexy school of lingerie, check out the flattering lace-detailed Flirting Shortie.
Brides-to-be, take note: these items are honeymoon-worthy perfection.
