Holiday Gift Guide: She Works Hard for the Money
This post is devoted to all the women out there who work hard for the money, so hard for it honey. She might be the CEO of a major company, or the Director of a psychiatric crisis center, or a Doctor of maternal and fetal medicine, or an accomplished Criminal Defense Attorney. All of these women, and so many others like them, shop religiously at Lille Boutique, and they continue to impress us! We love hearing their stories and offering them a little bit of relaxation and beauty in the middle of their busy days. Although their tastes vary, one thing is certain: these ladies know what they want, and they know how to get it. They appreciate quality over quantity, and they don't have time for anything that gets in the way of accomplishing their tasks. Thinking about getting her a ruffled bikini with silk ribbon ties at the sides that need to be retied every time you pull them off? Think again. A bodysuit without snaps at the gusset? Not so much. A corset?! No, no, honey. For these ladies, you want to remember the 3 c's: Comfort, Craftsmanship and Convenience. Because she works so hard for her money, she appreciates value, but she also has no trouble buying her heart's desire, so you really have to WOW her with something special. Think La Perla, Stella McCartney, Chie Mihara, and Wolford. We love the drop-dead sexy styling of the Shape Couture and Timeless groups, and especially the low-plunging Timeless Triangle Underwire Bra, which will look great under her favorite LBD for the next Non-Profit Charity Gala. Longline bras like the Caroline are another great bet, because they offer added support in a flattering, fashion-forward cut. She can pair that with the classic Fatal Seamless Stay-Ups, which are warm enough for winter and don't require a garter belt. Take-charge ladies also love High Heels, but never the ones they can't walk in. Chie Mihara's Onita Mary Janes have a solid heel and a slight platform to give her height and fantastic calves without taking away comfort and functionality. When she comes home after a long, hard day, she wants to relax in style. You can't go wrong with the elegant Townhouse Robe by Matters of Leisure. It would look particularly stunning with the Clara Whispering Chemise by Stella McCartney. Comfy, cozy Hanro loungewear will also fit the bill—their Lace Deluxe and Simply Satin collections will stand the test of time, and they offer the added benefit of working as layering pieces in her ready-to-wear wardrobe. To all the hardworking women of Portland and the men and women who love them, we salute you!
