Hopeless Romantic

Valentine Voyage

Basically if Bettie Page threw up on Chanel who then had a love child with Alexa Chung, who happened to ride everywhere on unicorns and rainbows and had an insatiable appetite for sex and cream puffs...this would be the muse for the lingerie line Hopeless, formed by Aussie sister team Gabrielle and Dominique Adamidis. According to the duo, their third collection, "The Voyage", is "based on Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Taking inspiration from the sharks teeth, the blood in the ocean and the waves of the sea." I'd say it's basically the cutest thing I've ever seen, beating out baskets of puppies and babies in costumes. With high-waisted bottoms and frills galore, these girls know how to mix vintage with feminine and make it sexy. Perfect for a Valentine's Day voyage through a sea of sheets...or to just stare at yourself in the mirror while you feed yourself chocolates and recognize how unlucky every boy (or girl) in the world is for not scooping you up sooner.

Here is another collection of theirs, inspired by the singing garden in "Alice in Wonderland". They cleverly played with the petal shapes which translated into these beautiful and innovative designs.

This next set was based on Audrey Hepburn's character 'Holly Golightly' in the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The black and white is chic, the silhouettes are sexy, the details are feminie, the style is vintage, but the whole ensemble is Hopelessly unique.

Hopeless also makes all sorts of adorable bow head/hair pieces. Here are just a couple to get your mouth watering before you check out their online Etsy store chocked full of silky confections!
