ModernGear Women: Down to our skivvies

It isn't often that I look to a catalogue to get suggestions on how to live my life. Having just moved into a new house recently, I'm still getting catalogues addressed to the previous tenant delivered by the tens every week and I have to say, they usually take a short trip from mailbox to recycling box, without even a glance. That is, until I saw the new Nordstrom lingerie catalogue. The fact is, this one's a keeper.

Nothing sapphic here, folks, it's just that I am a true fan of their gorgeous photography and romantic scene-setting, as well as the little lacy numbers themselves. Each photo paints a picture - from a delicate, utterly feminine ephemeral moment captured to seductive longing, the models are stunning but the lingerie is even more so.

Some of my favourite items from this catalogue and online are:

Hanky Panky Ruched boyshorts

Chantelle Intimates 'Caprice' Underwire Bra

Natori '133001' Demi Bra
Lace Trim Thong

Betsey Johnson Floral Babydoll Chemise with thong

Now I'll be the first to admit that I'd rather hang out all day and sleep at night in something like this:

PJ Salvage Henley Top
Stripe Boxers
or this:
Scanty Lace Trim Jersey Camisole$36.00
Low Rise Boxers

But the fact is, after having my husband pick up the catalogue and exclaim, "Wow, these girls are really pretty!" I think I'll take a page out of the Nordstrom lingerie catalogue and attempt some seduction myself.

the Hanky Panky Boyshorts are awesome (and MUCH cheaper at Holts!)
