Think it's a little early for a holiday-related post? Think again!

One of my favorite blogs, The Consumerist, routinely covers a phenomenon called "Christmas Creep", in which retailers (mostly big box) break out the tinsel, Christmas tunes and animatronic Santa Clauses months and months before the big day. Instead of sweltering in the summer sun, you can swing over to your favorite air conditioned mega mart for mega deals on ornaments, candy canes and Christmas lights... in August! So trust me, I'm not taking it that far when I post about the perfect holiday gift in mid-November... and this one can't wait.

We just received our first shipment from one of our favorite va-va-voom lines, Lejaby, and it's definitely something worth caroling about. As a line, Lejaby expertly bridges fun and function. Their bras are absolute masterpieces, with the little details that lingerie aficionados drool over. The collection is called La Garconne (the French word "garcon" means "boy") and uses elements of men's fashion, like pinstripes and clean lines, to give a refined flair to a truly beautiful lingerie that exhibits just a hint of cheekiness.

The La Garconne balconnet bra makes the ideal gift for the holidays, even if it's just for yourself! The sleek molded cups are covered with a deliciously smooth satin stripe tulle and Chantilly-style lace. Even sweeter, the whole package is finished off with a delicate bow embellished with crystals.

Mes belles, pair the La Garconne balconnet with either the boxer or Brazilian brief and there's no doubt that you'll be the perfect holiday treat!

The Garconne Boxer is sweet and sassy.

Be cheeky with the La Garconne Brazilian Brief!

In addition to the La Garconne balconnets and bottoms, from the same collection we also received a lovely cami with built-in bra-like support. It's a dream, just modest enough to wear under a blazer with jeans, and just sassy enough to move the holiday party back to your place!

So deck your halls with with La Garconne this holiday season, or gift it to someone you love. It's a present that will turn heads, and that NEVER goes out of style!

(Plus, the icing on your Christmas cookie: For every Lejaby purchase you make, you'll get a free Lejaby lingerie bag! Make sure to ask for it at the register!)
