If you follow my work on Style by Fire you'll know that I review products quite often. Because I believe in transparency I have never claimed that something has been a staple in my routine for years or that every new product I try is my new favourite product ever. I think it's important to be accountable to my readers by sharing genuine feedback and test products out for an extended period of time before putting in my two cents. My reviews are on products I have gifted to me and on products that I have purchased myself. Consumers should demand more from their products and I should be able to share my thoughts on a product if I think it's too gimmicky, too expensive or ineffective - which I have done in my reviews before.
Never one to be shy about showing off my skivvies, my love for lingerie runs deep. With lace coordinates being my go-to I became accustomed to spending $100+ per set. I equate a matching lingerie set with wearing red polish on your toes - no one needs to see it, but knowing you have it on makes you feel sexier and more confident and what woman doesn't want that extra boost of confidence?
Any "made for comfort" pair of underwear I had were specifically made for athletic use. Another reason I don't have "comfy" underwear is because of the retailers I frequent. Most of the shopping I do is at small local boutiques that specialize in North American made garments and when it comes to undergarments that usually means Sokoloff and Fortnight, Canadian brands specializing in lace and mesh sets.
My first purchase of the month is the vintage letterman jacket as pictured above. I have been lusting over getting my hands on the perfect vintage letterman jacket but found this to be quite tricky. I'm a lot broader in the shoulders than most women were in the 50's but men's jackets are always too long for me. When this beauty was posted on Instagram via Scout Boutique I double tapped it without any real consideration because vintage clothing rarely fits my busty frame. I've been stopping by Scout more frequently due to the fact that they'll be closing their 8th Avenue location and relocating to sharing space with their sister store, Lace Embrace.
