Monday Morning Inspiration

Happy Monday Everyone!!! I have a wonderful surprise today, so read on :)
If you've followed the blog for any amount of time, then you know that I absolutely love Vogue magazine. It's the only fashion magazine that I subscribe to. I love their fashion editorials and I'm always delighted with their up to the minute articles on current events. Yes, current event articles in Vogue magazine!!
There are a few other perks to being a subscriber. From time to time, I receive lovely books with the new collections of Ugg, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss and many others. It's such a delight to receive a special envelope with such a nice treat inside. Quite often I share what's inside with you here on the our Monday Morning Inspiration posts.
I recently received a new book from La Perla. Many of you enjoy making beautiful lingerie, so I thought I would share a few pictures from the book.

I especially liked the back detail on these two pieces.
 Many of you make corsets and bustiers, so I thought you would especially enjoy seeing the boning on these pieces.
 Take note of the side zipper. Makes sense!
 The detail on this piece is exquisite.

Beautiful slips.
In the picture below, they are showing the bra as well as the garment. Take note of the shoulder pads!!!! They're bigggg!!!

Now for the surprise...and it's a great one!!! I have a subscription to give away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are the details;
1. You must live in the United States. 
2. You must be a follower of this blog.
3. Leave a message on this post letting me know how you follow the blog, either the follower box on the right hand side of the blog or through Bloglovin.
4.The winner will be chosen this Friday, October 10th, 2014. You must respond via email with your address on Friday or I will have to choose a new winner on Saturday. Sorry for the short time frame. 

I am very excited about being able to offer such a great opportunity.
Happy Monday!!!!

  9. I follow via bloglovin. I haven't read fashion magazines for years - although I used to! I stopped to save money about ten years ago to save for travels, but then I started avidly search pinterest a few years ago. You've just convinced me that I should re-investigate the good old fashioned fashion mag.

    1. I guess this is why they are able to charge so much for these pieces. They are exquisite. The next time I do a bustier, I would like to copy how they sewed in the boning. It's just so lovely.

    1. Oh Glenna, you aren't old. You are just getting started!

    2. Well some days I sure feel old, but I still sew everyday. 40+ years of owning a sewing business makes you feel like you are old if you aren't sewing. All I really need is a face lift to take the sages away... haha

  16. Oh, my, these are gorgeous! Of course, yours, Rhonda, is just as amazing. (I read a newer post first.) Don't include my name in the subscription contest, please. I already subscribe digitally to Vogue. Have you watched the documentary on Diana Vreeland? Lots of wonderful Vogue history.
