Just crop it!

Crop tops, bralets, and bustiers are out and about this season and we are loving the trend!  The secret to pulling off this sexy look is to show only 1 to 2 inches of skin and pair the top with a highwaisted skirt or short.  Blazers, cardigans, and accessories are a great way to tone down the look and make it really wearable.  Here are a few of our favorite ways to rock this look with a cute highwaisted short.  For more tips on how to wear your your underwear out there, check out our Pinterest @ .

We love this gorgeous strapless longline from Fortnight- currently in stock at Bellefleur!  It's the perfect piece to create these sexy looks.

Bellefleur Lingerie Book Club: All You Need to Be Impossibly French by Helena Frith Powell. Discussion Three

We must admit, Chapter 7 took us for a loop!  This particular chapter addresses women's relationships with other women.  The Chapter begins with a Coco Chanel quotes stating, "My friends, there are no friends."  Several french women in this chapter state that not only is hanging out with a bunch girls "boring", but eventually one of them will try to sleep with your husband.

You may see two good friends meeting at a cafe for lunch, however in France you won't see a large group of girls going out together like you would in the USA. Here at Bellefleur, we spend so many long hours in the shop sharing stories, laughs, and our lives with other women!  It's surprising to find out that women in France play so much defense in their relationships with other women.  What do you think?

Do you think this is a fair assessment of French women?  Do you find that the women in your lives support or hinder you from having a healthy romantic relationship?

Lingerie Spring Clean!!

It's that time of year,  out with the old and in with the new!  As you stow away your winter coats and start to peel away the layers to acclimate the weather, you may notice something. Your lingerie needs an update.  It's hard to hide an ill fitting bra under a Spring wardrobe AND a great time to show it off!

There's so much Mint and Coral in fashion this season and we are thrilled to see it in lingerie as well!  Also, don't forget that a nice espresso or chocolate brown bra is the perfect color to wear under summer whites!  Now that you are updating your lovely bits and bobs, here are some of our favorite inspirational photos on how to organize your things at home!  Enjoy~
