Launch day for The Underpinnings Museum

After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, today is the launch of The Underpinnings Museum website. Thank you so much to everyone who pledged their support to the project and ensure that, not only did we raise enough to purchase period-specific mannequins and pay for more of the collection to be photographed, but we smashed through...

Review: ‘Anna’ by Peek & Beau

Ever since Playful Promises launched their more alternative styled mini-brand Peek & Beau in 2015, I have been drooling over the pieces and wishing there was something I could wear.

However, a few things caught my... Continue Reading →

National Underwear Day 2016

Call me cynical, but my first thought was... when they say 'national' do they actually mean American? I did a bit of digging and found out that this 'national holiday' was indeed from the US, started... Continue Reading →

Lust List: July

I'll be the first to admit that it's been another quiet month here on Rarely Wears Lipstick. When running a blog alongside a full time job, life sometimes gets in the way of writing, but this isn't always a bad thing as I'm often filling my spare time with interesting fashion-related things. So... apart from... Continue Reading →
