Sometimes it can be tough to find what you are looking for at the flea market. Or you may not have access to a flea market with an ample supply of quality vintage furnishings for sale. Enter Chairish, an online consignment marketplace where you can buy/sell exceptional pre-owned home furniture and d├ęcor. If you’re a vintage lover, then you will love shopping with Chairish. Its team of curators scour the market to find pre-owned home furnishings that are worldly, eclectic, thoughtful and unique.

Chairish accepts “like new” items as well as those with great bones that just need some extra TLC; the latter can be referred to its “Rehab Clinic”. Pieces must be stylish, in good shape and offer great value. Buyers can purchase directly from the owner, making it easier to negotiate a good price and learn the history of the piece. Many items are designer, custom, antique or luxury modern and vintage pieces. Larger items must have a listing price of $250 or more and traditionally shippable items must start at $150.

Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair Lingerie | Bangles & Bungalows http://banglesandbungalows.blogspot.com

Recently I was approached by Vanity Fair to review a bra from its new spring line. I chose the Beautiful Embrace underwire bra for its elegant floral detailing on the sides. Normally I wear wireless bras because I don’t like the feeling of the wire digging into my body. What I did not realize I was missing out on was the extra support, especially on the sides. With a bit of strap adjustment, the Beautiful Embrace bra fit perfectly and provided the right amount of lift I needed for a formal dress.

My only concern is that Vanity Fair does not provide sizing for those who need a 32 band size. But if you are looking for full figure coverage, Vanity Fair bras are pretty, comfortable and offer great support not only from the bottom, but the sides too.

I also learned a bit about the company, which has been around since 1919. Just check out some of these fabulous vintage ads for lingerie from Vanity Fair. I love admiring how fashions have changed throughout the decades, and you can get a good idea about lingerie trends here.

Vanity Fair celebrates women of sophistication, passion and confidence. The company offers classic, comfortable undergarments to complete your look. Its designs help to empower women with the “support” they need.

Did you know it was the first lingerie brand to introduce animal prints? Katy Perry can thank Vanity Fair for inspiring those leopard print bustiers she’s sporting in Roar!

Do you own a Vanity Fair bra? What do you think of its comfort and fit?

Disclosure: I was provided the Beautiful Embrace bra by Vanity Fair for review.
