Sweet Nothing Du Jour 7/30/15: My Retro Closet

First off, shout out to the lovely Ellie from Thigh Highs and Glitter for introducing me to My Retro Closet with her review of their lovely lilac “Joan” babydoll.

My Retro Closet is an online boutique based in the UK that offers a beautifully curated selection of vintage-inspired lingerie, hosiery, accessories, and loungewear, including their own Handmade by My Retro Closet designs, which are just THE CUTEST. Case in point:

THE RED ONE THE RED ONE.

Oh look here’s another red one:

Y’all know my weakness for both red lingerie and froofy fluffy robes and nightwear (I have a whole Pinterest board for them, after all), but if you don’t share my fondness for ruffles, never fear, there are more goodies!

My Retro Closet is a one-woman operation that celebrates independent, vintage-inspired lingerie brands and designers like Kiss Me Deadly and Playful Promises. Abi, the founder also brings her own unique voice to the lingerie landscape with the Handmade by My Retro Closet range.

I particularly love that so many nightwear pieces can be customized in a range of colors (I’d love to see a set that’s all white with black trim, or ooooh, what if she added a kelly green option? I’d be all over that). Best of all, most of the nightwear is extremely flexibly sized (the babydolls are one-size-only up to an 82″ bust measurement), so people who wear a wide range of sizes can still enjoy the flirty twirly goodness.

As if the designs weren’t delightful enough on their own, you can also get 10% off your first purchase with the code ‘WELCOME’, across all items with no minimum purchase. While I’m personally (sadly) on a spending hold until my bra size settles so I can rebuild my bra collection, I have to admit these babydolls are sorely testing my willpower.

What do you think of My Retro Closet? Are you as enamored as I am? Which items tickle your fancy?

    Totally missed this! I think I spaced out of the lingerie community for a couple of weeks there and then was wondering why my blog was getting a few more hits than usual 😉 Thanks for the mention lovely!

    I would looooove to see you style some of these in one of your gorgeous shoots once your spending ban is over. They are very very you.
