Getting beach ready...

Can you believe Easter is in 2 weeks? I can't. Are you escaping and soaking up some precious natural vitamin D? This year has just flown by, well I guess it has not been a 'normal' beginning of the year in Tallulah's world, but it's great being back in the boudoir, my happy place being  surrounded by the gorgeous new spring collections and in particular the new swimwear collections from Seafolly. We have never had this particular Australian swimwear designer in the boudoir, normally we stock the Moontide collections from Australia. It is easily available in department stores and as a rule when buying, I try to have collections and designers in Tallulah that are not so ready available, but last July I just fell in love. From fun and flirty retro red and white polka dots to exquisitely sophisticated chic navy blue. The whole collection is gorgeous and to celebrate Seafolly becoming part of Tallulah's family we are having Prosseco and 10% discount off the Seafolly swim collection this weekend ready in time for any of you lucky lingerie lovers who are off over the Easter break. Whether its a short spa break or a longer family holiday around the pool, we really hope you can make it in to Tallulah either Friday or Saturday for your swimwear fix, chat and of course a drink or 2!

Here is the invite for 18th-19th March.

 Below is a little introduction to the collection, starting with the Polka collection, and if you follow on Instagram FaceBook Twitter then you may recognise this one...

Retro style Polka bikini.

Tie-side Polka bikini.

Styles in this collection include the padded bandeau and halter tie tops, high waisted 50s styled briefs or lower waisted with tie sides and a fantastic one piece. The suit is low fronted (but not to low) with a slight shaped pad in the cup that can be removed like the halter tie top in  the bikini.

Below is the floral print of which the base is navy blue. The shapes include a larger cup under-wired bikini top, padded bandeau and one style of bottoms the tie-side.

Here is the collection that I think is my favourite, the simple shape of the top and navy blue colour  plus the fact that this is under-wired and almost just wraps around ones bust looks great, it can be halter neck or a strapless with tie-side briefs. This is the one I will be wearing in Venice this summer, can't wait!

Also in the collection is a padded halter shape- pictured below, and regular briefs that are slightly higher although not as high as the retro style in the Polka dot collection. This shape is great to sit just above a c-section scar as the tie sides may sit a little low, in case one is worried then this is the perfect shape bottoms. A super strapless one piece also in this beautiful navy blue, straps can obviously be added just like all of the bandeau/strapless styles of bikini tops mentioned.

Here it gets a little bight and white! Below is the simple shaped and amazing coral colour bikini. Padded bandeau top with tie-side bottoms, it is also available in chic white.
Imagine either colours with a tan, this coral is just incredible. LOVE IT.

Also within the collection are soft cotton kaftan's. Of course we are still stocking the beautiful silk and beaded kimonos that are great to cover up with when popping to the bar for a cocktail. The kimonos are online to buy always and we have some new colours in the boudoir. We will be offering the 10% off discount to these over the 2 days also (but not online, sorry!) Here are the cotton kaftan's from Seafolly's collection and the top image is the white dress style kaftan.

As you can see, they will sit perfectly over the bikinis and suits.
Also we have a rather elegant black one piece, that I have to say looks amazing with the sheer gold and black silk kimono and big Jackie O style sun glasses.

Looking forward to seeing you and any friends you bring along to the boudoir at the weekend for some swimwear shopping and Prosecco drinking.
