EVGENIA Spring/Summer 2016 Teaser Video by Tim Prestoza

I'm slowly releasing pieces from my upcoming Janus collection for Spring/Summer 2016 and I'm so excited to share this amazing teaser video by Tim Prestoza of Low Tek Studios which features model Deavon Coleman. Tim joined us once again for shoot day, capturing the Janus collection in all its glory. This new collection boasts an exquisite bridal color way which includes luxurious silk charmeuse pieces including brand new Short Gown, Bed Jacket and Thong styles and a limited-edition Ribbon Corset made with vintage organza. The Janus collection is named after the Roman god of beginnings and transitions, and the collection's inception coincides with my physical transition from San Francisco to pastoral West Marin. I hope you enjoy the video! To see more of the Janus collection, visit my site, and be sure to follow Evgenia on Instagram.

Gifted Betty Blue's Loungerie in the Lingerie Secret Santa

This post is a long time coming, but better late than never, right?

As in 2014, I participated in the Lingerie Secret Santa again at the end of last year and once again hit the jackpot with UK based Betty Blue's Loungerie! I've been admiring them from afar for a while, but what a treat to finally have their amazing work in my collection.

Betty Blue's Loungerie is retro glam at its finest, using soft, luxe fabrics to create sumptuous, vampy silhouettes, reminiscent of the screen sirens of the past. Betty Hobcraft, the brains behind the gorgeous brand, sent me a piece I was elated to finally try, the Nell Dress Slip, one of the line's classics. It's totally iconic and just as gorgeous on as it is in the photos. The refined slip silhouette in stretch satin and uber soft lace boasts a high natural waistline and sheer panels at center front and center back, a cheeky, sexy detail you don't often see in traditional loungewear.

I'm not an easy fit, with a large bust, large hips and comparatively narrow waist. What's great about this piece is that it stretches in the right spots and fits me marvelously.

As if the Nell Dress Slip wasn't enough, Betty Blue's also sent me their lingerie bag and their Agatha Eyemask, a sweet touch and extra cherry on top that just made this gift even more lovely. This whole collection came beautifully packaged and perfectly constructed. I really couldn't have asked for a more lovely treat. Thank you, Betty Blue's!
