A Little More Than Nothing

I must confess that I often find myself ironing in my underwear. Likewise cooking and cleaning. Seems a shame to get things dirty and creased, or myself all hot and bothered, whilst doing household chores. I fear this ‘outs’ me as rather anally retentive as far as clothes are concerned but, I don’t imagine it comes as much of a surprise to anyone.

The other thing with ironing is that I am often ironing a particular outfit at the last minute (having changed my mind fifteen times already…) and it needs to be instantly yanked on while I fly out of the door (having checked twenty times that the iron is turned off. Yes, I am also OCD). So I smiled a smile of familiarity when I saw these gorgeous photographs by Steve Hiett for Flair Magazine.

As always, Seventies undies completely trump all modern underwear as far as I am concerned…

      1. Haha – you’re too kind ! πŸ˜‰ If they’re ironing in their pants they probs don’t want to crease their clothing, this along with heir two irons prove they are most certainly fussy ladies! πŸ˜›

    1. Thank you for delurking and commenting Lauren! I know, the Abecita is pretty incredible. People don’t know how to make bras like this anymore. Or, at least the bras like this are usually by swanky French brands I can’t afford πŸ˜‰

  1. Yes, whatever happened to pretty bras? Everything now is ugly as well as made out of foam, like something out of a grim Soviet-era factory. Harumph.
