{The Bottom Drawer} Gilda & Pearl!


From the new collection: BonBon Silk Kimono


Happy Friday darlings!! How wonderful it is to see the weekend here, it's been a long week.  Since I've blogged about lingerie a few times, I decided to just add it as a topic on the blog - write about what you love & all that, it'll be a mix of shops & history also. There will be more changes to come on the blog, but today we start here.

When I think about the weekend, I always want to turn into a hermit and stay in my night clothes all day long and read books. And now that school and drama are over for the summer, I can. One place that helps me envision that - in a much more glamorous way mind you is Gilda & Pearl. I discovered them after writing about Petits Bisous, when they followed me on Twitter. I instantly wanted to pour myself some tea, grab some cakes and a great book with light music playing in the background, wrap myself up in their pretties and get lost in another world & look marvellous doing it. Born out of Diane Houston's love for stunning feminine pieces, sumptuous fabrics and traditional crafting techniques, in 2008 Gilda & Pearl was created. They offer one of a kind lingerie, too pretty to hide away, too luxurious not to wear every day. The name 'Gilda & Pearl' comes from inspirations, Rita Hayworth's character from the 1946 movie 'Gilda' & 'Pearl' refers to that of which is exquisitely beautiful to look at and not mass produced. I think it fits perfectly and gives a sense of magic to the senses. With her small team they work hard to create a world that leaves the wearer feeling feminine, empowered, beautiful and desirable. Get ready, a dazzling bombshell you shall be! 

Besides how beautiful the lingerie is, I quite enjoyed the themes and names for the different sets. Old vintage movies and starlets made them stand out more in my mind and offer those small treasures that I adore in life. I love their attention to detail, designs and care they have for their customers. Each purchase is made to order in the UK and hand finished for you here in Scotland. They work hard to use UK materials whenever possible to support UK industry, I think that's superb. You can also get custom orders made, have colour changes or discuss commissions. Wonderful, back to a time where service to the customer was at the very top, their every wish granted and items were made with a care and attention that's unbeatable to any mass produced machine, so that you look and feel your best in your purchases.  Below are a few favourites, but do wander to their website as they have many more that I adore there too.

Have a charming weekend doves

  15. *Drool*... :D I can hardly open and close m lingerie drawer anymore. But that doesn't mean I have too much lingerie - it just means the drawer is too small... ;) Love these pieces, and when looking at their web site I saw the prices were reasonable too - at least if you compare with some other lingerie brands. The only thing that was a bit too expensive for me was the Harlow Allover Lace Kimono - which is of COURSE the one that made me drool the most. Darn it! ;) Looking forward to more lingerie posts, and I'd love to take you up on your offer and do a guest post on the subject when I find the time! Happy weekend honey! <3 <3 <3

  36. For some reason I can only see the first and second of the Gilda & Pearl images on my computer, but that is enough for me to appreciate what they do! These pieces are beautifully elegant and oh-so vintage inspired, which is right up my street. Great idea for them to name the individual items after vintage icons - wonder if people gravitate towards their heroines? I'm willing to bet they do! I looked up Lovers of Montparnasse after reading your description and that one is definitely my favourite. I'm all about autumn :)

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts and am now your latest follower.
