To quote my mother, "it doesn't pay to buy crap." However, not everyone is rich. Which is why the Agent Provocateur end-of-year sale of one of my very favorite shopping events. I am a steadfast believer in the notion that investing in quality over quantity is important. I share an 800 square foot house with four other people, and my closet is sized accordingly. We have a small carbon footprint and we intend to keep it this way. However, it's nice to have something new once in a while.
Edit, edit, edit! Invest in classics. Buy quality.
Now, on to my top picks from this year's Agent Provocateur sale.
Lavender and turquoise is my favorite color combination, and who can resist a good corset? Oh my gosh, buy it but don't buy my size, ok? The sheer side panels and floral designs bring a hint of ladylike propriety to an otherwise naughty garment.
Happiness is an Agent Provocateur swimsuit. I bought the Kimmi bikini last year and it is my favorite swimsuit. The Lyssandra suit is a one-piece, but it doesn't have the number one feature I fear in one-piece suits: the full torso coverage that invariably makes me feel like I am trapped inside a giant rubber band.
3. Molly Kimono
I have been in love with every item in the Molly range since it was first released. That emerald green is delicious! I own the Lacy Kimono in fuchsia and the fit is absolutely wonderful. If I were looking for a satin addition, I would not hesitate to scoop up the Molly Kimono.
I could go on and on, but in the spirit of buy less, not more, we shall stop with the recommendations at three.
