A Sweet Treat: Betty Blue’s Loungewear Valentine’s Collection

Betty Blue’s Loungewear Valentine’s Day Collection I’ve always loved the glamorous image of a woman getting ready in her boudoir. A recent post from The Lingerie Addict on Pre-Code Hollywood Lingerie perfectly captures the mood of decadence, elegance, and sensuality that makes my heart flutter and imagination soar. Most days I, and I imagine many of us, are rushing to get out the door and running around getting ready in our pajamas, a warm robe, a towel, half of our work/school clothes…you get my drift.

My new job continues to take up more time than I anticipated, and then this month I was lucky enough to go on a vacation that I’ve been budgeting for and planning for over a year! I spent the last week in France and England visiting friends with my sister (and, okay, lingerie shopping), and I just had the most wonderful time and wish I’d been able to stay longer, not the least because if I’d stayed longer I might actually have been able to attend the lingerie trade shows that happened…
