"Les Caresses des Yeux" is a French poem by Auguste Angellier. It could be translated into "the Caresses of the Eyes" - the feeling of touching just by looking.
I like to think of lingerie as a tool of empowerment. It doesn't necessarily need to be touched, or to be taken off to enjoy. It's a pleasure to the eye before anything else; a pleasure of sight.
Anyone can feel themselves be empowered by the clothes they decide to wear, but lingerie is more than just body confidence. It is first and foremost an invitation to push the limits of your own self. I dare you to put on lingerie and not feel like you are carrying a secret weapon!
This simple and inexpensive lingerie set undoubtably had me feeling beyond confident (which believe it or not is a rare feeling for me). I found my robe the very first time I went to Paris to meet my now husband at Etam. It was a few years ago now but a similar one can be found here. The black lace bodysuit was a gift from my dear friend Amber and is from Zaful. They have tons that can be found here!
Now get on with your bad self and get to feelin' sexy!
