Every year our friends Roanne and Piera throw a Pink Party to celebrate their birthdays in April. Its been over a decade, and we still have plenty of enthusiasm for the Pink.

You’l recognize some of our favorite ladies in blush and neon this time… Miss Taylor of Parlor Showroom, Abigail Lorick (who we’re going to Hong Kong with in a few weeks!), and of course Francesca and Anya, who made their own headdresses. 

This year it was extra special to get out after a few months of knee-healing and such. Ouch!

Kicking off Spring with a bang!

LOOK OF THE DAY: Rosetta Bra and Bikini in Pearl

Named after our favorite restaurant in Mexico City, the “Rosetta” set is perfect for ushering in the warm spring weather.

In soft shimmery herringbone knit, this no-wire bra is much like our signature style, only its lined and opaque so you can wear it under a sheer tee without a worry.

Paired with our drawstring panty, its the perfect set for under your favorite sundress. 

HERE is where to purchase online. (also available in several boutiques in US and Canada).

Look of the Day:

HOTBED Bralette and Bikini in rosegold


Inspired by our trek up the pyramids at Teotihuacan (outside Mexico City), this set comes in layers of fine lace and netting reminiscent of rattlesnakes in hot dry sand, stone carvings shimmering at sunset, candles flickering in dark aisles of the voodoo markets…

In soft styles that are easy to wear with your new Spring wardrobe, this series brings you into warm weather with richness and a pop of coral where our signature closure is found.

HERE is where to purchase.

(If you have trouble finding your size please let us know, we’ll help you with that.)

We travelled all the way to Mexico and climbed to the very top of the pyramids to gather the materials we needed for this week’s new styles… Coming soon, the items inspired by our trip and a peek at where to find them.
