Harlow & Fox Octavia Kimono

I had a good time doing this roundup last January for 2015, and I thought it would be interesting to do it for 2016 as well!

Holiday Lingerie Gift Guide Inspired by Psyche

When it comes to channeling the Psyche myth via your lingerie collection, as far as I’m concerned, it’s all about that lace.
