Last weekend Forty Winks hosted Between the Sheets designer Layla L'obatti for an "intimate" trunk show.
How could I resist a chance to swing by my favourite local lingerie shop, meet the lovely designer and founder Layla, and take advantage of special discounts? In my opinion, the perfect activity away from the hullabaloo and parade traffic downtown. I also never miss a recommendation from my advisor at Style on the Couch, who continually steers me in the right direction when it comes to lingerie.
Ty (my chihuahua and shopping partner in crime) and I made the walk down to Harvard Square together, sipped some champagne, picked up a few frilly items, and had the opportunity to chat with Layla.
After studying at FIT and honing her skills at other intimates brands (Tommy Hilfiger and Nicole Miller), Layla decided to step out on her own with Between the Sheets Lingerie. The brand combines seriously chic and luxe deco inspired pieces for the lingerie minded, along with comfortable and cute lounge ware.
Layla was game to answer a few questions for us about the line and of course, go deep, with Five Questions with Mon Petit Chou Chou.
Because everyone is either a macaron or a cupcake person.
