Wayward Grace at Revival

I spoke to a friend of mine a while ago about her desire to open a lingerie boutique. She had a vision of a shop that would stock pretty undergarments for anyone who wanted to wear them, creating a warm and safe environment in which to browse and try on anything which took their fancy....

Introducing… Folie A Deux

As you might imagine, I get a fair amount of emails in my inbox that are about something I might want to feature on Rarely Wears Lipstick. Most of the time it's messages from PR companies who clearly haven't read my site and are offering me exclusive interviews with sports stars or other completely inappropriate... Continue Reading →

What Katie Did: Rita and Kate

Part of their Glamour collection, the Dots Chic set has a balcony bra and (rather unusually for this brand) high-waisted knickers in black with my favourite pattern... polkadots! In addition...

Review: Regina Doll Dress by Collectif

Collectif are one of those brands that I've been aware of for a while, but haven't really got around to trying properly yet. A firm favourite of my burlesque buddy Little Miss Naughty (seen here in their Stella tiki print dress) and Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, I knew that Collectif produced clothing that...
