One for me and one for a lucky My Little Boudoir reader. This beautiful original 1944 Chanel powder print ad could be …

In honor of President’s Day (ok…ok…so I missed it by one hour and now it’s the day after President’s Day…please forgive me), here is a tour of a few White House boudoirs and private quarters used by First Ladies (and one First Daughter) throughout the years. Which is your favorite? Bess Truman Jacqueline Kennedy Caroline …

I {heart} Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day I came across these boudiful (boudoir + beautiful) red heart-shaped tufted button slipper chairs (wow that was a mouthful) the other day online and deemed them perfect for my Valentine’s Day post and oh so boudoir worthy (although the red doesn’t really go with my color scheme). Aren’t they gorgeous? They are …

Boudoir Essentials: The Boudoir Slipper

Every woman with a boudoir must own a pair of fabulously feminine boudoir (or house) slippers. To me a “boudoir” slipper should be a bit dressy…not the clunkers that are typical of this day and age that often times wind up looking like a mix of an old pair of clogs and something brought back …

“Hello, Operator?”

Of course everyone remembers the rotary telephone, right? Oh contraire! When pulling out this vintage telephone for its photo shoot this evening, my nine year old daughter exclaimed, “this doesn’t make any sense…how do you use this thing?” Oh, to have been born in the 21st century… I have to say, there is something I …

The Handbag Search

I’ve recently been searching for a new handbag. Since this sort of purchase is typically an investment of sorts, which means it needs to last a while, I look for one that meets the following criteria: 1. Quality (because it needs to last) 2. Black (because it goes with almost everything) 3. Leather (because it …

Laundry…the Boudoir Way

Having a ladylike boudoir usually means having some fine delicate unmentionables. And when they need laundering, not just any detergent will do. When I have delicate items that require handwashing, I like to use Tocca’s fine laundry wash. It is available in four different scents, all of which are delightful. “Cleopatra” has a grapefruit cucumber scent…”Florence” …
