Holiday Gift Guide: Hopeless Nostalgists
Posted on December 09 2013
We get more than our fair share of Hopeless Nostalgists here at Lille, and we love to indulge them over a cup of Parisian Tea while they try on tap pants and bralettes to the tune of Josephine Baker playing softly in the background. If your girlfriend loved Midnight in Paris and spends hours on her finger waves, then Lille is the only place in Portland to pick up her unmentionables. Start with hosiery: there is nothing better than the gorgeous Silk Stockings by Maria La Rosa pictured above. If she's more of a retro pin-up fan, then Gerbe's New Vintage Stockings are right on the money. For a true flapper at heart, look to floaty shorts and mini tops like the Petit Point Bralette and Hipster or Tipsy Toile set by Only Hearts. If money is no object, then the Caiton Teddy and Cadel Slip by Araks just scream Ziegfeld Follies. She will love the silky sheen of the Faye Flirting by Stella McCartney and the Casablanca by Elle Macpherson Intimates. And, finally...we found the Cat's Pajamas--the Andrea PJs by Princesse Tam Tam.
