Merry Christmas!

2014 has been an amazing year at Fox and Rose, not only have we seen a new owner at the helm but we’ve also had some truly stunning lingerie pass through our doors to offer to you, our lovely customers. We’ve grown from strength to strength and are now looking forward to a well-deserved rest over the Christmas period but are very excited for what’s to come in 2015.

Karen Norman at Fox and Rose

In January, Fox and Rose was bought by Karen Norman, the owner of the long-established Joanna’s Wardrobe, who knew from the moment she was approached about taking over the business that this was something she had been dreaming about doing. Having built up Joanna’s Wardrobe from scratch in 2008, Karen had a lot of experience in running a successful lingerie online retailer and has ploughed all of this knowledge into making Fox and Rose into a really exciting and accessible place to shop for luxury intimates.

Purple Elle Robe by Kiss Me Deadly

Karen also brought over the ever popular indie brand Kiss Me Deadly from Joanna’s Wardrobe who, although have a retro feel to their designs, appeal to many very loyal fans and she just knew that Fox and Rose’s customers would fall in love with them too.

Fox and Rose lingerie blog

In April, I joined the team (sorry, no photo!) to bring you all of the latest Fox and Rose news, as well as lingerie based tips, trends and advice each week with our regular blog posts. We’ve covered both the Spring / Summer and Autumn / Winter trends, shown off our favourite brands such as Shell Belle Couture and Vollers, as well as introducing you to the 5 best UK based lingerie blogs and the 5 best US & Canada based lingerie blogs to follow.

Fox and Rose lingerie photoshoot

During the early summer months we were hard at work getting ready to launch our new Autumn / Winter 2014 range and were so pleased to be able to do our very own photoshoot with some of the most glorious lingerie pieces from Mimi Holliday, Stella McCartney and Rosy. Set in luxurious surroundings, with our beautiful model Emelie Sternman, make-up artist and photographer we shot some truly glamorous photos and we were so excited, we just couldn’t wait to give you a glimpse behind the scenes.

Just Married silk knickers by Ell & Cee

We also did a series of posts for all those of you who were getting married whilst we actually had some decent weather for once.  Focusing on those oh-so important foundation garments on the big day itself with our Under the Wedding Dress post to the most glamorous lingerie and loungewear pieces we all, one day, desire to take with us on our honeymoon. We weren’t jealous at all!

At the beginning of October we launched our Christmas season, starting with our Getting Ready for Christmas – Boudoir Photography post. Giving your partner a beautiful intimate gift of you posing, very demurely of course, in a boudoir setting has become more and more popular and we wanted to make sure you truly shone during yours, so we put together our own tips and experiences for making sure you got as much as you could out of your shoot.

Towards the end of the year we were very honoured to be nominated for the lingerie online retailer of the year award by the UK Lingerie Awards. We made it to the finals and were up against Coco Bay, Figleaves and Simply Beach and we felt so priviledged to be included alongside some truly amazing and well-established shops. Unfortunately we didn’t win, that particular honour went to Simply Beach, but we are keeping our fingers crossed for next year!

Fox and Rose Christmas Countdown

This was closely followed by our Christmas Countdown where we offer different discounts every few days on all of our lovely lingerie. This year we’ve also been offering you 15% off the Rosy range, which can still be taken advantage of right up until the 23rd of December, as well as 20% off the exclusive Claret Cherie Teddy from Kiss Me Deadly which finishes today (21st December).

All of our standard shipping dates have now passed for guaranteed Christmas delivery but you can still place your order with us and by selecting the Next Day option during checkout, up to and including the 23rd of December, we will make sure it gets to you in time.

Finally, we would like to thank each and every one of you, our wonderful customers, for giving us a fantastic 2014 and we want to wish you a very merry Christmas and hope you have an amazing new year. See you all in 2015!

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas (or Gift Hints!)

Last minute Christmas gift ideas

Every year I tell myself I’m completely prepared for Christmas, then I relax and don’t get stressed out by any of it. However, about half way through December (right about now!) I suddenly realise I’ve done nothing but put the tree up. I have tons of presents left to buy, as well as putting them in the post. I haven’t bought any food, despite having all the family coming around, and I’m seriously panicking! This is when the random impulse buying starts.

Never fear, though, if you’re like me sit down, pour yourself a mulled wine and take a deep breath. Feeling better? Good, now have a look through our last minute Christmas gift ideas guide to make sure you choose something a whole lot better than that hilarious novelty Christmas jumper you’ve got your eye on.

Sleepwear

Babydolls, nightgowns and teddies are always a safe bet if you want to buy something special that’s still as seductive as lingerie. You won’t have to worry about getting the correct bra size and then choosing the matching items, all you’ll need is the recipient’s dress size. Simple.

Oyster Whippy Babydoll by Mimi Holliday

The Oyster Whippy Babydoll by Mimi Holliday is about as feminine as you can get. Created in an ice pink silk satin and silver lace trim, this soft, ethereal babydoll is a clever combination of highly seductive and angelic innocence. Team with the Oyster Whippy Frilly Boy Short for a truly irresistible set. Even better, if you purchase it between the 18th and 20th of December you’ll receive 15% off!

Seduce Me Gown by Shell Belle Couture

Featured in the TV show ‘The Bridge’, the Seduce Me Gown by Shell Belle Couture conjures up a time of ultimate glamour. Styled in a 1930s inspired design, this nightgown is crafted in vintage spot tulle and appliquéd with exquisite French leavers lace. Available in both black and ivory, this is the height of luxury elegance.

Claret Cherie Teddy by Kiss Me Deadly

Available until the 21st of December with 20% off, the Claret Cherie Teddy by Kiss Me Deadly was made exclusively for Fox and Rose and its sister site Joanna’s Wardrobe, so you won’t find this anywhere else. Designed from an original vintage piece, this teddy is cute, playful and flirty and would be perfect for any wannabe pin-up.

Stocking Fillers

We all love those little presents that fit neatly into a stocking hanging over the fireplace but this year why not purchase a little piece of luxury to add to your special lady’s on Christmas Eve? And, of course, she’ll love this so much more than a chocolate orange and a bag of chestnuts!

Ivory Eyemask by Fred & Ginger

The Ivory Eyemask by Fred and Ginger is so glamorous even the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly would’ve loved to have received this on Christmas morning. Made in 100% silk and padded for extra comfort to the eyes, it is trimmed with matching Chantilly lace to create a truly indulgent treat.

Maison Close Stockings

Maison Close are renowned for their French luxury erotic styled lingerie and accessories and their stockings certainly live up to this reputation. Their Sheer Cut & Curled Stockings are designed in a way that was popular during the brothel explosion of the 1800s in Paris where there is no welt across the top, the edge is left sheer and is curled over to stop it fraying.

Pleasing Suspender Brief by Shell Belle Couture

The Pleasing Suspender Brief by Shell Belle Couture, available in black or ivory, is the ultimate luxury stocking filler. Designed in silk crepe de chine and appliqued with French leavers lace on the front and sheer spot tulle on the back for a cheeky surprise! Decorated at the front with matching ribbon bows and finished with detachable silk suspender clips.

For Him

Did you know we do men’s underwear as well as women’s? Max Holliday is the perfect brother to Mimi and we have a fantastic selection of their quintessentially British designs for you to buy for the man in your life. And, if you purchase any from this collection between the 21st and 23rd of December you will receive 20% off their full price.

The Catherine by Max Holliday

The Catherine Boxers by Max Holliday are made in a fresh, spring-like Liberty print cotton which is contrasted by the bright pink lining. Finished with a single button closure, their signature embroidered heart at the bottom of the fly and a deep purple satin inner waistband. Let your man indulge his feminine side with these classically cut, beautifully floral shorts.

The Emmie by Max Holliday

From a distance the Emmie Boxers by Max Holliday look like a classic pair of dark blue shorts, however, get up close and you can see the intricate detailing of their Oriental design of elephants, palm trees and florals. Lined in an elegant navy polka dot cotton and finished with a opulent green silk inner waistband, they feature the signature embroidered heart at the fly and the MAX logo on the leg.

The Pops by Max Holliday

For something much more vibrant, the Pops Boxers by Max Holliday combine the colour of the 1970s with an elegant, gentlemanly design of pinstripe in tangerine and white. Made in 100% cotton and trimmed with a matching polka dot lining, these feature a silk satin inner waistband in mustard and the signature one button closure and embroidered heart at the fly.

A Gentleman’s Guide to Lingerie Gift Buying

A Gentleman's Guide to Lingerie Gift Buying

At Fox and Rose we know that finding the perfect lingerie gift can be tricky, especially with all those sizes, colours and styles to choose from. It can be even harder as a gentleman who really wants to impress the lovely lady in his life with something that both he and she will love. Never fear, just follow our lingerie gift buying guide and we’re sure you’ll be the most popular boyfriend/fiancé/husband on Christmas morning!

What’s Her Size?

Know Her Size

If you don’t know it already then somehow you will need to find out her size before even attempting to purchase anything. Don’t just guess, no woman wants to receive lingerie that is way too big or too small. There are several easy ways you can find out, so there’s no excuse.

  1. If you’re not worried about spoiling the surprise just ask her, or be more subtle by working it into a casual conversation.
  2. Take a sneaky peek inside her lingerie drawer but, be warned, she may cut all the labels out.
  3. Ask her best friend. This is the one woman in her life that is most likely to know and she may even give you tips of what brands or styles that are best to go for. If you’re embarrassed about asking in person, send her a text or an email. And you can bet your life this will win brownie points with the bestie!

Remember, you’ll need her bra size, a number and letter(s), and her dress size, a number, for knickers and nightwear. Every product on Fox and Rose has a sizing section within the information details, so you can always be sure of choosing the correct one.

What Are Her Favourite Colours?

Bra Colours

Every woman knows what she likes and doesn’t like when it comes to choosing her favourite lingerie colours. Have a quick look in her lingerie drawer and you’re bound to see a dominance of one particular shade. Alternatively take note of what colours she wears a lot of in her every day dress. This can often be a big hint.

Colours say a lot about the gift you’re giving, so if you’re going for seductive then red, purple or black can be just what you’re after. If you’d rather indulge your romantic side go for something more girlie with shades of pink, cream and pastel blue. And if you’re just not sure, it’s always best to go for something classic like shades of white and nudes (a light skin tone).

Is She a Fox or a Rose?

A Fox or A Rose?

All women have two sides to their characters, the tempestuous, bold and mischievous fox and the chic, feminine and understated rose. These sides are more often than not reflected in their lingerie choices and many women veer towards one style rather than the other.

The Fox

Leaning towards the racier side of a woman’s personality, the Fox loves black and it’s her go-to colour. However, shades of hot red, peacock blue, emerald green and sumptuous purple often appear in her lingerie drawer when she feels like she needs a splash of colour. She loves the luxury of silk and satin against her skin and will often indulge in these for her every day wear. However, she will love to take it up a notch in the bedroom with bondage styling and sheer fabrics of chiffon and simple lace to tempt you into her lair. Watch out, she may bite!

The Rose

The softer Rose is no less alluring than her sister, she just chooses to approach everything in life in a much more subtle way. Her love of delicate pastel shades of pink, blue and purple are complimented by angelic whites and luxurious gold and silver which all feature heavily in her favourite lingerie pieces. Although she loves to wear satin, she cannot get enough of fine silks, floating chiffon and intricate lace. Feminine touches of frills, polka dots and flowing fabrics create elegance and coquettish grace without being over-the-top girlie. Treat your rose well and she’s yours forever.

We’ve Got It All Wrapped Up

Fox and Rose packaging

Once you’ve chosen the perfect present, you’ll want it perfectly gift wrapped and we have the most beautiful Fox and Rose gift wrapping to make life easy for you. Firstly, the lingerie is carefully wrapped in our signature tissue and tied with a delicate contrasting ribbon. We then place this in a smooth and sturdy Fox and Rose box for a professional finish. All you’ll need to do then is place it under the tree!

Just choose the F&R signature packaging option when you select your delivery method during checkout.

The Low Risk Option

Fox and rose gift voucher

If you’re really not sure what to get or are scared of buying something she really won’t like then the easiest thing to do is give her gift vouchers. She will then be able to choose what she wants and you could even have fun choosing her gifts together by browsing all the wonderful lingerie on Fox and Rose.

Shop our gift vouchers now »

And As Back Up

We know occasionally things don’t go according to plan, particularly when buying presents, so we’ve extended our returns policy to cover the Christmas period and any purchases made between 12th November 2014 and 1st January 2015, inclusive, may be returned to us by 10th January 2015, so you can rest easy.

Your Guide to Christmas Party Perfect Solutions

visit

Party Perfect Solutions

Next week we’ll be heading to London for our very first outing for the Christmas season and this one is rather special. Yes, we’re going to the 2014 UK Lingerie Awards and we’re finalists! You can just imagine how excited we all are and, of course, we couldn’t head out to the lingerie event of the year without buying new party frocks.

However, even the most desirable and glamorous dress won’t look right without the perfect foundation and we need to make sure our lingerie won’t let us down. How embarrassing would that be at the lingerie awards?! So, we’ve put together a guide to help anyone who is going to be donning their dream dress this Christmas so you too can have an amazing time without having to keep checking yourself in the mirror all night.


THE MULTIWAY

The multiway bra allows you to wear all sorts of amazing necklines without showing your straps or having to go without any support

The Erin Wishing Strapless Bra by Stella McCartney not only keeps everything firmly in place but it can be worn in several ways. It also gives you a nice smooth finish due to the underwiring being concealed beneath the sumptuous ivory stretch silk.

Erin Wishing Strapless Bra

Timbuktu Bra by Damaris

TAKING THE PLUNGE

Deep plunging necklines are an amazing way to show off your best assets but you’ll always want to be assured that you’re fully supported and creating just the right shape as you sashay into the party so make sure you choose one with that is constructed with these things in mind.

The Timbuktu Bra by Damaris features their signature deep V shape to create an exquisite cleavage for those gorgeous low cut numbers. Created in the softest peach silk, it features cotton padding in the cups for an extra boost of confidence.

SMOOTH OPERATOR

Creating a sleek and smooth silhouette with your foundation garments will instantly make any dress fall beautifully around your body with no worries of any lumps and bumps showing.

The effortless styling of the Bustier Singuliere by Princesse Tam Tam not only creates a seamless shape but it also gives you the option of going strapless. Made in soft black stretch jersey and matching mesh, its shaped cups and elastic top edge give you light support that will feel like a second skin.

L'Amour Bodysuit by Rosy

BODY BEAUTIFUL

And of course, not all shapewear needs to be plain. We’ve all come a long way since Trinny and Susannah introduced us to Spanx and these days many designers are producing shapewear that’s so stunning we’d rather show it off than keep it under wraps!

The L’Amour Bodysuit by Rosy will give you a clean, smooth torso whilst adorning you with its delicate lace. Made in black mesh, it features a light support solid panel down the front, sheer lace underwire cups for added support and adjustable straps. This is so sexy you won’t want to cover it up!

NO VPL

Okay, so visible panty lines aren’t quite as taboo as they once were (blame the thong for that craze!) but if you’re planing on wearing a bodycon dress this Christmas a smooth pert bottom can easily be ruined by a pair of briefs that causes a ridge across each cheek.

The back and sides of the La Coquette Tanga by Rosy are made in slate grey chiffon and are finished without seamed edges to appear invisible beneath your clothes. The matching delicate lace of the front triangle gives these ultra comfortable knickers a feminine touch.

Control High Waisted Brief by Rosy

YUMMY TUMMY

Sometimes we all need a little help from our lingerie to smooth out or flatten a particular area we’re not happy with. Control briefs are perfect for targeting your waist, bottom and stomach. Find a firmness that is comfortable for you and you’ve found your very own pair of magic knickers!

The Control High Waisted Brief by Rosy offers medium support with its black powermesh which is comfortable enough to wear every day as well as on those special occasions. Designed in a feminine high leg style, it features a no VPL edge finished with matching delicate lace.

TAKE CONTROL

We’ve all fallen in love with a to-die-for fitted dress but just didn’t feel confident enough to wear it. However, with the perfect control foundation this will never be a problem again. Control tops, skirts and slips can sculpt your figure into a gorgeous smooth silhouette with everything from your bust, waist, tummy, bottom and thighs shaped to perfection.

The pull on Rosy Control Top and Mini Skirt by Rosy come together to create a truly sleek foundation. Designed in black powermesh and trimmed in delicate lace, you can’t help but want to show off your womanly curves with this combination supporting you.

Raspberry Ripple Moulded Bra by Mimi Holliday

BREAK THE MOULD

Not only can a moulded bra give you fantastic support but it can also create a smooth, seamless shape with its perfectly rounded cups and, of course, these can come in a huge range of colours and styles so you don’t have to stick to the classic black, white or nude of most shapewear.

The Raspberry Ripple Moulded Bra by Mimi Holliday is about as far away from the standard colours as possible. Its bright fuchsia pink is both fun and flirty and the moulded cups and silk satin create a clean line underneath your clothes. Team with the Raspberry Ripple Boy Short for an irresistible lingerie set.

So, now we’re feeling a lot more confident about our outfits for the lingerie awards, however, we’re still a little bit nervous about whether we will win or not. We want to send out a big thank you to everyone who voted for us and please keep your fingers (and toes!) crossed for us on Wednesday evening!

Creating the Ultimate Hollywood Goddess Boudoir

Hollywood Goddess Boudoir

I recently moved home and one thing I was determined to have in the new place was a boudoir space all of my own. I’ve always loved the glamour of the bedrooms and dressing rooms you see in the films of the 1930s and 40s and, of course, all of the beautiful robes and lingerie they sashay about in during these scenes. And here at Fox and Rose we believe there’s nothing more luxurious than having the perfect environment to wear and display all your beloved pieces of lingerie.

Marie Antoinette's private chamber

Of course the sirens of the Silver Screen weren’t the first to come up with this concept and way back in the 18th Century Marie Antoinette was renowned for the most extravagant and opulent private chambers with their swathes of pale blue silk, walls covered with delicate gold leaf and sparkling chandeliers containing thousands of crystals. What girl wouldn’t want to laze about in her boudoir robes picking out the perfect shoes whilst indulging on sumptuous cake? (I actually think this is my idea of heaven!)

Jackie O's dressing room

Even Jackie O fell under the spell of creating her own private space with this beautiful Marie Antoinette inspired dressing room in the White House, complete with its own dressing table, privacy screen, plush seating and lavish fabrics. But how do you go about creating your own?

Velvet and lace and silk, oh my!

Drapes of heavy dupion silk, cushions of the softest velvet and touches of lace, feathers and frills all help to create a sense of luxury and indulgence in any boudoir. Whether you go for light and airy baby pinks and blues or dark and sensuous golds and reds nothing can add glamour like rich, tactile fabrics.

Versailles curved silk upholstered bed

Who wouldn’t want to wake up in a gold bed upholstered with quilted silk? This Versailles curved luxury bed from the French Bedroom Company would make the ultimate statement piece in any goddess’ bedroom.

Porcelain room service kimono

And, of course, you would always need a fabulous robe to lounge about in and nothing is more perfect than the Porcelain Room Service Kimono from Shell Belle Couture.

Silk curtains

Windows should always be dressed with opulence and drama. Plush and oversized curtains of silk, satin or lace that puddle on the floor can create a breathtaking impact to any shape or sized window.

Nigella bolster cushion

Plumping up the headboard with all sorts of lavish cushions help to increase the sense of relaxation and indulgence. But why not place several Nigella Bolster Cushions from Laura Ashley at the foot of the bed for somewhere to rest your weary feet. Go on, they deserve it!

Dimple nude bedding

At the end of everyday who wouldn’t want to dream away the night between pure silk sheets and kept oh-so comfortable and warm underneath a quilted silk bedspread? Choose matching pieces like the Dimple Silk Bedspread and Silk Bed Linen from Gingerlily to create a truly chic look.

Bisou bisou azure teddy

And why not slide into those beautiful sheets wearing nothing but silk with the Bisou Bisou Azure Teddy from Mimi Holliday?

Show off your wares

Creating the perfect space for all of your clothes, shoes and, of course, lingerie is every girl’s fantasy. If you can show it off and see all of it at the same time it’s a huge plus point so you don’t ever forget about that killer corset that’s tucked away in a drawer somewhere.

Lingerie storage

This is my ultimate dream, having all of my gorgeous lingerie hanging up in its own space in a walk-in wardrobe. Thankfully, creating this sort of storage doesn’t have to be expensive with Ikea providing all sorts of combinations with their clothing storage solutions.

Large glass fronted french armoire

If you don’t have the space for fitted storage why not go for timeless elegance with a French armoire. Choosing one like the Large Glass Fronted French Armoire from Out There Interiors allows you to not only hang all your treasured pieces up but proudly display it for all to see.

Herb garden mannequin

Mannequins are great for showing off your most cherished or most lavish piece of nightwear. Drape your favourite robe around its shoulders or create a display with your most opulent nightgown and style it with pearls around the neck. Mannequins don’t always have to be plain either, Vintage Style Mannequins have an amazing range of intriguing and ornate ones for you to choose from.

Fox and Rose packaging

And don’t forget to keep those Fox and Rose gift boxes as these come in handy for keeping your lingerie dry and out of the sunlight stacked up in a drawer or displayed in a cabinet.

Pamper in style

Gilda

In the first scene Rita Hayworth appears in Gilda she is stood in front of the most incredible dressing table. It’s true Hollywood glamour and has everything you need to pamper yourself every night before going to bed. You can create your own pampering area with a few simple key pieces and then fill it with your perfumes, make-up and jewellery so you have everything in one place when you need it.

Florence mirrored dressing table

The dressing table is the most important item and a mirrored one, like the Florence dressing table from Homes Direct 365, helps to add to the sparkle and romance of the room. Make sure you choose one with a triple mirror so you can see all of your gorgeous angles as you get ready.

Powder puff

A powder puff is the epitome of 1930s Hollywood glamour. Use one like this Cotton Candy Powder Puff from Bonnie Bubbles on Etsy to apply body powder, preferably infused with your favourite perfume and just a little glitter dust to really shine throughout the night.

Bisou Bisou eye mask

One thing you mustn’t forget about whilst making yourself thoroughly gorgeous is your delicate eyes. A silk sleep mask not only blocks out the light, so you can get a good night’s rest, but it can help to soothe eye area as the natural amino acids present in the silk are thought to be beneficial for the skin. The Bisou Bisou Rocket Eye Mask in purple silk cleverly matches the rest of the Rocket range from Mimi Holliday.

Mayfair chair

A dressing table area isn’t complete without the perfect chair to sit in whilst you do your make-up and this stunning Mayfair Chair from Next is available in a range of luscious velvets. Just the right fabric for any Hollywood boudoir and is actually on my wish list of pieces to get!

Hollywood slippers

And you can’t be a Silver Screen goddess without the most ravishing pair of Hollywood mules to adorn your feet. What Katie Did really know how to produce vintage style lingerie (you can buy it on our sister site, Joanna’s Wardrobe) and they have produced these to-die-for bedroom slippers that I am just aching to wear around the house.

Creating your own ultimate Hollywood boudoir is about choosing those key pieces that will fit into your own home. Adding a splash of silk or a few velvet cushions may be all you need, after all it’s your space and it’s where you want to feel like you don’t have to be anybody else, just your truly gorgeous self.

So I already know which pieces I’m adding to my very long wish list. What about you?

The Perfect Christmas Countdown Sleepwear

visit

How many sleeps 'til Christmas?

As of today it is officially 39 sleeps until Christmas day! Has the Christmas fever hit you yet or are you waiting until the beginning of December? Whenever your Christmas spirit kicks in you can’t help but countdown how many sleeps until the big day arrives and what better way to do this than indulging in the perfect sleepwear for the festive period. No, we’re not talking reindeer onesies or santa claus pyjamas. Here at Fox and Rose we like to keep things a little more glamorous and sashay our way through the holiday season, so we’ve picked out our eight most favourite pieces for you to dream the night away in until Santa comes.

Clara Whispering Chemise by Stella McCartney

Created in opulent amethyst coloured bias-cut satin, the Clara Whispering Chemise by Stella McCartney is truly unique. Its bralet style top and deep ‘V’ back create an illusion of a two-piece from the back, yet the front seductively joins together between the bust using a criss-cross of matching lace to create the complete slip.

Gatsby Slip Dress by Shelle Belle Couture

For the height of glamour you needn’t look any further than the Gatsby Slip Dress by Shell Belle Couture. Inspired by the romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most famous book, The Great Gatsby, this relaxed chemise screams of the charm and glitz of its female characters such as Gatsby’s true love, Daisy Buchanan. Designed in cream silk crepe de chine and trimmed with a long hem of gold Leaver’s lace, you just can’t help but want to throw on some pearls and drink champagne all night.

L'Exaltante Slipdress by Rosy

Made in the softest black microfibre, the L’Exaltante Slipdress by Rosy is an easy to wear chemise that still manages to ooze elegance and intrigue. With its deep ‘V’ lace panels on the front and back and its thin straps that criss-cross between the shoulder blades, it is both flirtatious and ultra feminine.

Frost Leopard Shorties by Mimi Holliday

Creating a delightful mixture of delicate femininity and animal magnetism, the Frost Leopard Camisole and Shorts by Mimi Holliday, will surely bring out your wild side. Styled in a signature Mimi Holliday leopard print, this two piece set is made from the softest silk satin and accentuated with the finest dusky pink lace across the bust. Both are fastened with a single button to create a small peephole at the back.

Claret Cherie Teddy by Kiss Me Deadly

Invoking the spirit of the 1950s pin-up and inspired by an original vintage teddy, the Claret Cherie Teddy by Kiss Me Deadly is both sexy and cute. Made in a stand out deep red satin, it has a classic, full leg to the bottom and black satin shoulder straps which are fully adjustable. The triangle cups are created using soft back lace which trims both the top and bottom edges. This unique piece is only available from Fox and Rose or our sister site, Joanna’s Wardrobe, so you won’t find this anywhere else!

La Frivole Pyjamas by Rosy

If you’re more of a pyjamas sort of a girl, then nothing is more glamorous than the La Frivole Pyjamas by Rosy. Made entirely in black satin and matching criss-cross lace, it is highly seductive as well as being ultra elegant. The entirely sheer top is trimmed with deep satin bands both at the bottom and the edges of the batwing sleeves, whereas the bottoms are mostly opaque satin with small panel of lace down either leg.

Shell Wrap Robe by Shell Belle Couture

Nobody does Hollywood style robes like Shell Belle Couture and the Shell Wrap Robe is one of its most enchanting. There are hints of the 1930s Chanel style pyjamas in this robe with its deep folded cuffs and loose shape, yet it manages to create a silhouette that is much more feminine. Created in a pink champagne washed silk, it features delicate gathers both on the front and back yokes, whilst being finished with their signature shell edge stitching.

Beau Lace Robe by Shell Belle Couture

And there couldn’t be a more delicious statement piece to wear on Christmas day than the Beau Lace Robe by Shell Belle Couture. With its full length of sheer white (also available in black) ornate lace and wide silk crepe de chine trim, lapel and waist belt tie it is the epitome of Silver Screen elegance and sex appeal. We’re sure you’ll be able celebrate in style in this one!

What will you wearing as you countdown the days? And which one do you hope to be underneath the Christmas tree?

The Ultimate Fox and Rose Christmas Gift Hint List

visit

Chrismas Eve by Gil Elvgren

It’s getting to that time when we all need to start giving little hints to our other half of what gorgeous lingerie we’d love them to buy us this year for Christmas. Because we all dread that moment, don’t we? You know the one, when they say they’ve bought you something really special and they can’t wait for you to try it on.
