Sweet Treats For You and Your Loved Ones

Friday, January 23, 2009

Coast to Coast .. This is one of the best shops I have ever seen!

Have you ever seen so many beautiful styles and clothes in one store that you just wanted to cry because you A) Don't have enough money to buy everything, and B) You can't pick?

Check out Coast. Based in the UK, they still have "To Die For Clothing" and it's worth paying the extra shipping! Here are my picks... just goregous dresses, tops, pants and shoes. Wish I could show everything : ) (Left is the Birdson Dress in Lt Pink.) This is so perfect for a wedding, spring tea, prom or even bridesmaid dress.

I admit I went a little crazy on the white dresses, but I couldn't help it! They have other colors too; and shoes; and jewelry; and pretty much anything you want.

Above: Christabel Duchess Satin Dress; Exquisite Duchess Satin Dress with beautiful bow detail on the waist, and a pencil shape skirt with full skirt overlay detail to give a full silhouette. Fully lined and boned.

Mancini Tulle Dress: A romantic style all in layers of ivory tulle, this dress features a flattering bodice with a straight neckline and gathered tulle, with a very full skirt to knee length with many layers of dreamy net. The dress has a corsage of ivory blooms and ribbons in sage, ivory and lemon tied at the waist.

Seeing Red in the Bedroom ... Valentine's Day Lingerie

Valentine's Day Wedding. Or perhaps you just like red. Your bridal lingerie does not have to be white. You can choose special bridal lingerie for your wedding night and honeymoon in other colors as well. How about something in blue, black or racey red. It all boils down to one thing... buy something that you feel comfortable and sexy in because it is you that will make the lingerie beautiful. Myself, red is perfect for the 14th of February. It reflects the heart, the season and love. Here are a few nice and classy pieces that we like.

Charmeuse and Lace Long Gown Bridal Lingerie

This silky charmeuse fabric drapes in a flattering,flowing style. The slim shoulder straps tie into a criss-cross pattern on the lower back so you get alittle lift in the bodice and a sexy, peek-a-book look from the back. The gown is trimmed with sheerlace and is available in red or blue.

Two-Tone Lace Bridal Lingerie Bustier Set

The slightly paddedunderwire bra with adjustable straps and a hook and eye back closure lifts and supports. We include a matching thong panty, removable garters and matching one-size-fits all stockings for a complete set of bridal lingerie. In your choice of mauve or black.

Charmeuse and Lace Baby Doll Bridal Lingerie

Want to wear white but also reflect the Valentine's Day "Red". Simply add a red garter. Then, the new hubby can hang it on his rear view mirror. One can never have too many garters.
