Author Andrea Lee writes in the February Vogue* that “Every woman has a shadow wardrobe, outfits that suggest an alternative identity, a road not taken. I see mine as a shrine to past desires and the tenebrous aspects of self-invention.”*
“Shadow wardrobe” is an apt description of lingerie. Not everyone gets to see it, but it adds a rich dimension, nevertheless. Feel the power of its color, allure, surprise. Jane’s Vanity brings your shadow wardrobe into the light.
Perhaps you think you cannot wear a certain gorgeous color. But you want to. Lingerie would be a sweet way to experiment. Try a little camisole in a jewel tone from Gilda & Pearl: the Ophelia Emerald Silk Camisole Set or the Madame X Camisole in rust with black and gold lace at cups. Now is the time to choose something in deep purple from Lise Charmel: the Dressing Floral Indien Chemise or its matching Lingerie Set.
A black bra might whisper to your back row sexiness. Taryn Winters understands. Her Margot Beaded Lingerie Set provides all sorts of transformation.
Wear your dreams to bed in a dark fantasy from Christine Vancouver: the Darwin Silk Gown in a navy print menagerie, or the Ophelia Floral Gown in ultra lightweight black silk charmeuse with oversize flower print.
Sometimes a shadow wardrobe is all you need. Especially if it is from Jane’s Vanity.
