***WARNING: PARTIAL NUDITY***
This will probably be the only time I broadcast any form of indecency on my blog, but Agent Provocateur, one of the well-known luxury lingerie companies, is having a GIGANTIC sale upto 75% off right now until Sunday! I don’t know why. It’s a little early for Halloween and even their Christmas sale is only 70% off!
I know in the European countries, they do go on sale, but in the North American countries – it’s RARE, and never before seen in Canada. In fact, we are even lucky if the Canadian retailers don’t jack up the regular price due to the heavy customs charges upon entry to our land. *Cough* Holt Renfrew.
My first shopping experience with Agent Provocateur was back in high school, not that I purchased anything, but I remember a few friends and I wandered into the lingerie section and we were flabbergasted by how one teeny little bra cost 390$??? Another one 495$!!! And the cheapest was around 200$. The four of us started touching the lace on every single item – with 2 sales women peering down at us with dagger-eyes. They must’ve hated our dirty and grubby paws lol.
Anyhoo, the products are flying off the site right now, especially in the UK, but more inventory is still available on the US site. The webpage is a bit wonky and will often flip back to the UK site, so beware if something automatically disappears in your basket… Just open up a new browser to go back to the US site.
The selection is very good – bras, panties, suspenders, night gowns, robes, and including the upscale Soirée collection. There are some cute accessories available too – but I don’t get the leather gloves… I do have to say that the more classic items’ selection is not the greatest, although they do have the Alina, Fifi, and Françoise styles available. Nonetheless, if your girlfriend loves frills, lace, and other frou frou – c’est vraiment votre chance maintenant d’achéter quelques choses pour votre chérie!
Sorry, can’t resist adding some French when speaking of lingerie lol, but hey no worries, even if you’re single, treat yourself to something special! : )
My favorite must be the Fifi style. I remember Britney Spears wearing it for her Circus tour and she had a Swarovski crystal version custom-made. All these people were criticizing her, it’s like c’mon, give the girl a break! Besides, most people who think so negatively probably are overweight or obese themselves. I can’t say that she was fabulously toned at the time, but if you don’t have a better body, then don’t judge others. I do have to admit that I’ve always had a soft spot for Britney. Although naïve, I think she’s a very sweet and passionate person. Love almost killed her and turned her into a fool. I’m truly happy she’s doing better these days!
