Avenue Cafe

Combining lingerie inspired pieces, or actual lingerie itself, with the clothing hanging in your closet can be quite tasteful when done right. No, I’m not encouraging you to run around in a bra and unbuttoned cardigan per se, I’m talking more along the lines of slips, camisoles and a peek of a chic bandeau or bralette.

Sticking to a classic palette (think neutrals and monochromatic vibes) allows you to leave the house without the risk of looking like you unintentionally left the house… you know what I mean. No one wants to see your bright red lacy pieces in public, however, behind closed doors you’re free to wear whatever you want. Red included.

Avenue + Bistro Cafe served as the perfect backdrop for my all black look. The crisp white interior, combined with black detailing and marble everything provided for a complimentary setting to this subtle nineties inspired look. It really allowed the dark outfit to stand out against the stark white.
