Basics Be Damned! just doesn’t want to be sensible. Such as when a left turn takes one to work and a right turn takes one to San Diego. OK, bad example. Or, when a shopping expedition for rain boots turns into a score on a party dress. Or, when one is utterly overcome by the latest exquisite pieces at Jane’s Vanity. Isn’t each day to celebrate? It may be grey outside, but needn’t be underneath one’s clothing. There is no time to waste. Basics be damned!

Case in point: Voiment’s Shimmer Dot Bralette Set. One needs a long-line soft bra in jet black silk accented with silver lurex dots and a little row of pearl buttons. Ditto matching boyshort panties with a ruffle. Come on.

Or, perhaps one might redefine practical with the Gilda & Pearl Gilded Macaron slip. It has a zipper, after all, to assure a nice fit for its transparent pale pink floral leavers lace, scalloped edges, spaghetti straps with criss-cross back. It will go with everything, right? Right! 

And one must step up for cheery little prints such as that of the Dressing Floral Camisole from Lise Charmel. Otherwise, life might be so dull.

Finally, hasn’t one longed to leave nothing to the imagination? Enter Cadolle’s Scarf Print Bodysuit with its leopard spots, baroque furbelows, and sheer black lace in all the right places. (And, there is a seriously cut Porno Chic Shelf Set to match). Did you know that the French word for dynamite is dynamite?

Hooray for un-basic lingerie from JV!
