The Italian Lesson

There are few things as tedious as going to class... that is, unless you attend at A La Folie!

Take your seats, class! We're going to work on our Italian vocabulary and today the focus is seduction. Remember to roll those those r's... Cominciamo!

Love = amore
Beautiful = bellissima
Kisses = baci
Romance = romanzesco
Lover = amante
Dusk = crepuscolo
Silk = seta
The pinnacle of Italian lingerie = Ritratti

Si, friends, we are delighted to offer Ritratti once again! Ever since we sold out of our last collection, we've had customers begging us to bring it back. Ask and ye shall receive!

Ruby Ritratti Demi $288, Ruby Ritratti Thong $95

This new shipment includes a lovely sheer demi cup bra, fashioned out of ruby red netting, with rich warm brown three-dimensional embroidery. The demi also features satin straps and underwire sheaths, as well as a beautiful red bow to finish off the package -- sealed with a kiss, if you will!

Add to the lovely bra its coordinating thong, and you're in for a real treat. The thong features the same embroidery as the bra, and maintains the uber-soft satin details.

Ritratti is truly the cream of the crop when it comes to Italian lingerie. No details are overlooked -- it's the kind of set that will have you singing its praises per sempre!

The Newest from PJ Salvage

The last time we had PJ Salvage in store, the sets flew out the door faster than we could blink. Needless to say we were missing the oh-so-cute pajama line almost the second we'd come to adore it.

Pine no more, chers amis, for PJ Salvage is back once again and sweeter than ever! Our newest shipment (the Butterfly collection) features impossibly soft modal jersey printed with an ivory butterfly pattern on a coral pink ground, soft lace and sweet contrasting taupe bows.

Butterfly Cami in Pink $43 (Also available in Taupe)

From camis to chemises to shorts, this line has it all. In addition, we also have two different varieties of pants to offer in the Butterfly collection: one cropped and one palazzo. These are sure to be your new favorites, perfect for a warm summer night.

Butterfly Shorts in Pink, $38

The Butterfly collection also features a few coordinating pieces in taupe for those of you who like to mix and match.

As if you needed more convincing, PJ Salvage's affordable price points are always a pleasant surprise: from a mere $38 for a pair of shorts to $69 for decadent Palazzo pants. This is one sweet indulgence you don't have to feel too guilty about!

Chic Fashion Week Preview with Charleston Pierce

We love Charleston Pierce, but you knew that already! Aside from being an amazing producer, fashionisto, and humanitarian, he's just an all around good guy... which is why we're delighted to be part of his Chic Fashion Week Preview this year.

Chic Fashion Week will be the place to check out the latest trends by San Francisco's newest and hottest designers, and it's all for a good cause. This year, Chic Fashion Week will be donating a portion of its proceeds to Until There's A Cure, "a national organization dedicated to eradicating HIV/AIDS by raising awareness and funds to combat this pandemic".

We couldn't be more proud to show off our wares for such a good cause. Join us in fighting the fight with fashion (and lingerie)!

The preview show will take place at The Historic Four Galleries Estate (21 East Buena Vista Avenue), from 6 - 9pm. The fashion show begins at 8pm, and donations are accepted at the door.
