Pop-Ups Monday!

August is a hot and steamy month—the perfect time to update your lingerie wardrobe! Shopping for underwear can be awkward and uncomfortable, especially in this summer heat. The following three fashion tech sites are quite different, but all offer great selections. Do the best lingerie shopping without having to leave the comfort of your air-conditioned apartment!

Discover, explore, and enjoy! 

1. MeUndies

This site claims to be the most comfortable and the most convenient in all things underwear! The first step is to answer the questionnaire, indicating your preferences.  Then, the site matches your preferences, allowing you to shop for your favorite styles. After you find what you love, you can either make a one-time purchase or put your favorite pair on auto-ship and get a different color or style delivered straight to your door every month. The shop is designed for both men and women and has been featured in WWD, Refinery29, Forbes, and Glamour.

2. PantyByPost

This is certainly a creative idea for fashion tech! Panty By Post is a monthly panty subscription service so that you can either give or receive “a pretty panty every month in the mail.” The site offers three different lines: Signature, Bridal, or Men’s. Subscriptions are available from three months to one year and the longer your subscription, the more you save. Panty By Post is either a worthwhile gift to yourself, or a thoughtful and romantic gift to your significant other. The packages that arrive in the mail are absolutely adorable, and guaranteed to make your mailman blush!

3. AdoreMe

Like so many fashion tech sites, your experience on Adore Me begins with a quiz to reveal your personality. The site stands out because you are then given access to your own private showroom for free, featuring a personalized selection of intimate apparel each month. The four stylists that create the showrooms are experienced and reliable, ensuring customer satisfaction. Lingerie sets are only $39.95 with free shipping and exchanges. Check out the “Spicy Summer” collection when you visit the site—we doubt you’ll be disappointed. There is even a swim section on the site so you can add a summer bikini to your shopping cart at checkout!

Thanks for joining us this Monday morning.

Fashion Icon Friday: Miuccia Prada

In honor of the opening of the most recent MET exhibit, this week’s fashion icon is Miuccia Prada. She was born in Milan in 1949; then in 1978, Miuccia took over the company her grandfather started with his brother in 1913. Miuccia received a degree in Political Science and had no original intentions of going into the family business of fashion. Prada once said about herself, “I never actually decided to become a designer. Eventually I found that I was one.”

Since then Miuccia Prada has changed the way the world views fashion. Prada gained a huge following in 1985 when they released the simple nylon backpacks that were the “it” accessory of the 90s. In 1988, Miuccia Prada launched a women’s ready-to-wear line; by 1993 she added menswear and started another collection named Miu Miu—after her own nickname.

She’s had quite a successful career—she’s won the CFDA International Award, been listed on Time’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and Forbes’ list of the World’s Richest People, just to name a few accomplishments. Her background and passion for politics have made her a very intellectual designer. Each collection she presents is revolutionary, with her pairing of colors, fabrics, and detailing. Miuccia took Prada from a small Italian leather goods company to a multi-billion dollar luxury label that is one of the most recognizable in the world today. We’re dying to see the new exhibit at the MET with two of our fashion icons, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.
