When Knickers Become Clothes: Wheels & Dollbaby
As someone who is very familiar with and fond of the concept of underwear as outerwear (I lost count the number of times this exchange happened last summer- “Did you just go to Whole Foods/the post office/the gas station in a bra?” Me: “Yes”) I immediately take notice of any underwear-ish clothes that mean I can indulge my lingerie obsession out in ‘the real world.’ I also of course love lingerie I like to refer to as ‘show pieces’ or ‘for special occasion’- yes, those “WOW!” pieces we all need sometimes.
So naturally I adore the fringed knickers, bodies and bra tops my friend Melanie does for her label Wheels & Dollbaby. And if I’m available I’m usually lucky enough to be shooting them and getting first peeks too! The intimates pieces of the ‘Can-Can collection’ (made from a thick, stretch white fabric with a red and navy stripe) scream both ‘Showboat’ and ‘French Riviera’. Not to say I won’t wear them on other forms of marine transport or idyll vacation locations…
The W&DB signature ‘fringed knicker’ and boned bodysuit akin to their famous ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ one-piece, are joined with a tie up bra top that I would definitely match with not only the knickers but happily mix with shorts, high-waisted jeans or capri pants.
These styles will hopefully be re-made again in coming seasons, but are very limited in this ‘Can-Can’ fabric. If you feel must have them (and you should), check out the following direct links to purchase…
How did it take me this long to find this adorable girl? I love her Tumblr so much! <3<3<3
