    The Lingerie Journal
    The Lingerie Journal - Lingerie Trends, News & Expert Adviceby Sarah Clarke, Editor, Lingerie Insight
    It is notoriously difficult for British brands to break into America. Just ask Marks & Spencer and Tesco, both of which failed to crack the market.
    But that hasn’t stopped a group of independent lingerie labels taking the risk.
    When entering the US market, small UK firms face the challenge of managing their business from a distance, not to mention the differenc

    Disclosure: This set was purchased with my own money. All opinions are my own. Amoralle has this way of creating beautifully seductive imagery. The Latvian luxury label’s lookbooks are fairytale dreams. Even their studio product photography seems otherworldly. The last time I bought from the label was nearly 4 years ago. It wasn’t an entirely positive experience, and I had to cancel an order because it hadn’t been shipped after several […]

    One of the biggest lessons I’m learning this year is the importance of completion, of finishing what you start. Creating new things is a type of high all its own.
