CLOSED: a giveaway of the unmentionables!

27 August 2009

For those of me who do know me, it is no surprise that I would mention the unmentionables.

And for those of you who do not, well, I did go there.

The unmentionables, however unmentionable, do deserve to be mentioned at one point. Surely we all know that undergarments are necessities for every woman (except those who do choose to go bra-less or completely commando). Once invented as a garment for purposes of modesty, they have since evolved into an accessory of sorts for the braver fashionable: corsets worn as tops, black lace bras peeking through blouses or sheer tanks, etc. Ah. We get cheekier and cheekier as the years go by, much to the dismay of the older generations.

And so, as a loyal Victoria’s Secret fan and and avid supporter of wearing lacy/pretty undergarments and loungewear, I am more than happy to announce a collaborative giveaway with Faire Frou Frou, a boutique (with a blog dedicated to lingerie!) of indulgent unmentionables, intimates, and jewelry for the sex kittens I know you all are! Their aesthetics and inspirations are admirable: boudoir pin-ups with a modern touch of demure sexiness meets Moulin Rouge. I do love their assortment of lingerie, my favorites being the: SAFIA Pearl & Turquoise Necklace (which includes my two favorite stones of ALL time!), the ID Sarrieri Eyelet Padded Bustier (ugh, so elegant and sexy!), Mimi Holiday Cotton Ruffle Tunic in a stunning shade of peach, and most of all, the Lake & Stars Truce camisole (imagine that touch of sexy when tucked into a high waisted pencil skirt!).

Frou Frou Giveaway

To Enter/Rules:

It’s quite simple, really. All you have to do is leave a comment below that MUST INCLUDE the phrase: “Faire Frou Frou“! The catch? Make it into a witty/silly/funny/<insert other adjective here> slogan or catchphrase about the boutique Faire Frou Frou!

You have until Sunday, August 30th (11:59 p.m.) to enter! The reader with my favorite comment will be selected and announced Monday (31 Aug 2009). Best of luck and most importantly, have fun!

    I was planning to clean out my closet, but I never got past the lingerie basket – instead I rediscovered all my old silky things and decided to *faire frou frou* with all of my favorite things!

    Then someone walked in on me and we decided to faire other things…

    ahhh!!!! the silk, the lace, the frills! so nice 😀
    and my little creation of a phrase:
    Faire Frou Frou: to bring out the petite coquette in you
    and yes, my little phrase does rhyme- in a slightly nerdy, slightly adorable way……i’m pretending its more adorable 😛

    Are international contestants allowed to enter? 🙂

    The fair Faire Frou Frou twirled in a circle in the meadow, imagining herself wearing a skirt that would twirl around with her, but of course she had run outside wearing only her corset and pantyhose, secretly hoping that the handsome man she saw here yesterday would catch a glimpse of her…

    Faire Frou Frou: dare to unleash your naughty side!

    (in french : all that I love is to do Frou Frou (sound of tulle skirts or petticoats))

  18. 27 August 2009 6:50 am

    Faire Frou Frou is feminine and flirty and lingerie go to.

    A haiku:

    I melt when I see
    The sheer, the lace, the beauty
    Faire Frou Frou, I die.

    Or a poem:

    To be like Audrey Hepburn
    I bought a sleeping mask
    But to use it in turn
    Without something cute
    Would be quite a difficult task.
    So when I sat right down
    And saw all this Faire Frou Frou loot
    I knew I’d have to try
    And oh with a sigh
    I took pen in my hand
    And hoped for some words upon my page to land.
    The lacy and sheer
    Is divinely sincere
    And how I’d love to have some at hand.

    Vicki’s is overrated, and frequently visited by 12 year-old girls using their mommy’s cash.

    Frederick’s is not really my style, and I heard a story from a friend of a friend who, seriously, got a rash.

    So, in a quest to find luxurious lingerie in la la land, what is a girl to do?

    Well, darling, no need to travel all the way to France…FAIRE FROU FROU!

  43. 27 August 2009 5:35 pm

    “All is Faire in Love & Frou Frou”

    Oh Fair Faire Frou Frou, let me count the ways I love you:
    I love the way you feel, the way you look. The way you make me feel, the way you make me look.
    Is there anything better than beautiful lingerie?
    That was a rhetorical question, because the answer is “nay”.
    Oh Faire Frou Frou, please let me win
    I would feel super pretty, and shine from within!

    haha that was pretty dumb but wonderful contest!
