Sleep. Sleep Pretty.

Sleep. We spend the most precious of our everyday in deep sleep, where the problems of our every day lives leave us momentarily.  This jet-setting life of mine has led to many sleepless nights, whereby I find myself wide awake in the wee hours of the morning, thinking of absolute rubbish. I am begining to believe my body is now filled with toxic because research has shown that the time at which the human body detoxifies is actually between 11pm to 3am. Not only do I miss this detox period for my precious body, I find myself woken up at 9am in the morning by some sort of an imaginary creature which holds my eyelids open and crawls into my brain and runs circles in it. So this has been my lifestyle and sleep pattern for the past few weeks and I can tell you that is a horrible experience. I find myself putting on extra pounds (and, may i add, not in the most flattering of places), being rather irritable and just plain tired.

And contrary to what you may perceive, counting sheep doesn’t necessarily put you through a peaceful sleep. (I’ve tried it countless of times and I always drift off thinking about something related to sheeps and some faraway farm and what it would be like if I was born a farmer’s daughter). Well, research shows that combing your hair and wriggling your toes before sleep helps to improve blood circulation needed for a good night’s rest. But, I shall let you into a little secret of mine, sleeping pretty does it for me. Honestly, I just cannot fall asleep without having a nice warm bath, slattering myself with the richest of moisturers before slipping into bed with my pretty and luxurious Les Affaires sleepwear. It’s all the little things you can do for yourself as you prepare for a good night’s rest. There’s no saying what works for me will work for you but I think it’s all about finding the sleep diet best for you, my sleeping beauties.

Les Affaires instantly transforms from sleepwear to casual wear.

And worry not, when your sleep diet just doesn’t seem to work. For the first time, it didn’t. My overactive mind wasn’t gonna allow me to do sleep pretty without a hundred worry lines on my face. It was then that I decided to take a road trip out driving with a bunch of friends. The trip was so impulsive that i simply changed out of my sleeping pants, put on a pair of denim shorts and i was out in seconds. Extremely random and it made my friends question my sudden decision to leave but honestly, it made many things so much clearer in my mind. The doubts that I have been having in relationships and questions I had about myself and what I want. Not only that, it left me so absolutely tired that I fall asleep promptly before 11pm. It was exhausting but nevertheless, rejuvenating. Funny how I just put two contradictory statements together.  Free your mind, and find what works best for you. I know I did.

I shall bid you bonne nuit and a well-rested sleep. Les Affaires will be with you all the way. And as usual, I’m gonna give you a secret promocode: LALUVFASHIONISTA which gives you an awe-inspiring 25% discount so you can get the same well-rested sleep that I have!

Les Affaires Fashion Show 2010: Naughty & Nice

When it comes to fashion, somehow naughty and nice just doesn’t seem to fit, except for the fact that they both start with the letter ‘n’. Especially so when it comes to sleepwear. It looked almost as though we had tasked ourselves with the impossible when we set it as the theme of Les Affaires Fashion Show 2010.

But nevertheless, we must say, we succeeded. The lace veil mask that the models wore was a signature of this “naughty” theme. When ‘un-veiled,’ the niceness of the Vintage Trousseau collection was undeniable. Showcasing Vintage Trousseau, the fashion show played on the romance & sensuality of yester-year where courtship was slow and gradual, where beauty was alluring and mysteriouus.

Guests mingled in the Fashion Show pre-party, some decked in the same lacy veil mask that was included in the gift bags, at the chi-chi Ta Ke a Studio M hotel. It was a seductive tropical setting with an infinity pool. Everyone from the Les Affaires team was decked in Les Affaires latest collection. Guest who spotted them were reward with prizes fro TaKe & Chocolate Schubar. The show was not without a cause, we raised $500 for the Breast Cancer Foundation, by auctioning an exclusive one-off bridal piece.

Be Decadence. There is no such thing as over-decadence when it comes to pampering ourselves with the sweet surrender of lace, and softest of fabrics here at Les Affaires.

Lady Gaga says we should look nice all the time.

We are not hard-core fans of Lady Gaga but we love the way she pushes the boundaries of fashion. She’s self-indulgent and sometimes, we all deserve a little pampering (just don’t go overboard, dears!).

She said on showbizspy: ‘I think you should look nice all the time. When I meet celebrities and they’re in casual clothes, I’m always like, ‘Whaaat?’ I don’t mean to be judgmental, but it would do them better to be who they really are, all the time. When I get out of a car and there are 30 fans waiting for me, I know I’m dressed the way I should be. There’s a reason they have that emotional reaction.’

You should too. You don’t have to dress the way she does, you just have to dress in what you think you look best in. Indulging on little splurges that you so deserve. I can’t wait to slip into my favourite sleepwear tonight as I sip a hot latte and read my book to sleeep.

Here’s my picks! Its time you indulge in yourselves too, sleeping beauty.

Fash Bash!

See you this weekend! unbeatable discounts, we promise.

Vintage Trousseau

It’s the coming of Fall/Holiday and this time, we’re gonna bring you something more vintagey than ever, more dark than ever. We absoloutely love this merging of new patterns with old vintage trousseau styles.

We heart this look because it is suggestive, not aggressive.
which, may i add, is way sexier.

Here’s a sneak preview of our inspiration this season. Nostalgia.

I just love the cute PJ’s in the picture above! Be sure to catch the same blend of black lace and cream in our coming Fall/Winter’10 Collection.

And, the plus point? It’s a perfect compliment to this season’s trend.

You should have always known that there’s nothing wrong going to bed looking as fashionable as you look in your everyday life.  ♥

Seduction.

With the boyfriend eye’s only on soccer this entire month, Les Affaires is here to give you some tips to get some of his eye time.

Dress right for the right occasion. When the other boys are around (aka the soccer-betting-buddies), make sure you’re appropriately dressed without looking like you’re trying too hard.

But when it’s just the two of you, it’s really all up to your imagination how you wanna look and dress. However, during the FIFA World Cup, you first have to access how ready he is to be seduced. Don’t go all out, with your full bustier corset, only to realize he only wants to KO. I’ve specially picked some styles that will keep your dignity intact, in the case that he really just wants to sleep.

Shop these styles now on Les Affaires online store!
