Valentine’s Day is coming up and most of us will be shopping for some pretty intimates. Now, I’m not a La Senza or Victoria Secret type of girl. I prefer less in-your-face-sexy designs by Calvin Klein, VPL, The Lake and Stars, Marni (if I could only afford it) and of course, Phillip Lim. In the past year, I’ve received a gazillion emails asking me what underwear Blair Waldorf usually wears. The answer is  Phillip Lim, most of the time (sometimes it’s Marni and La Perla). It’s pretty, delicate and, most importantly, affordable. The only bummer is that it’s not available in Canada! Just online, unfortunately. But they come pretty true to size — XS, S, M, L — and they come as separates. I usually get a small bra (36A) and medium panties (size 6/8 — I like them loose). 
$87.93 CAD for the bralette and $98.28 CAD for the panties at Shopbop (free shipping to Canada).
PS. In fact, there are so many options on Shopbop, it’s hard to choose. There is also the gold printed lace bralette and cheeky briefs, the printed lace silk kimini wrap, the chiffon bralette or the chiffon bralette with disco stripes with matching cheeky brief
