Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? I have so much to be grateful for this year… I don’t even know where to begin. Without getting too sentimental, I would just like to say that it has been overwhelming, humbling and inspiring to watch my businesses grow. And I have you all to thank for this! Without you, my family, friends, fans, followers and supporters, I would not have been able to plow forward through the tough times (when I was literally working 18+ hours a day.) I’ve learned to simply put one foot in front of the other… Planting lots of little seeds along the way. The rewards have been priceless. I am very blessed. What do you have to be thankful for this year?
Here are a few Intimate Insights and Upcoming Intimate Affairs:
Last Wednesday, November 14th, luxury brand Fleur du Mal celebrated its launch by hosting an Intimate Affair at a trendy downtown NYC loft. The event featured Parisian DJ Inez Melia and renowned Mixologist Xavier Herit. Fleur du Mal is a signature collection of ready-to-wear and lingerie by Jennifer Zuccarini. With years of experience, including time as co-founder of Kiki de Montparnasse and design director at Victoria’s Secret, Jennifer is a natural at creating sensual, seductive pieces that both men and women are drawn to. Fleur du Mal provides a confidence boosting aspect to any woman’s wardrobe through specialty pieces such as a leather corset created in collaboration with famed Parisian corset maker Cadolle, a sheer tuxedo blazer, and French rose lace intimates. The line is sold exclusively through a uniquely interactive e-commerce website, FleurDuMal.com, and creates a sophisticated, fashionable and innovative way for women to shop online. The site features highly editorial, shoppable content, where consumers can not only browse and buy the luxurious Fleur du Mal collection, they can also discover and purchase complementary lifestyle items that Jennifer adores. Additionally, the website utilizes endless scrolling functionality and includes social media integration, making it seamless for customers to share intimate sneak peeks of their most desired wants and needs. I was most impressed by the leather intimate apparel pieces and the clipped French Leavers lace used in constructing the bra and panty sets is exquisite. Tres jolie!
The Intimate Affair, GO NAKED AND CHECK YOURSELF, was held on November 18th at Teak Restaurant, Red Bank, New Jersey. The annual event is a fundraising affair dedicated to bringing awareness / prevention to detectible cancers where you can go naked and check yourself – skin, breast and testicular cancers. The event was presented by Sugarush (a specialty bakery in Red Bank, NJ) and the award-winning lingerie boutique, Sweetest Sin.
The mission of Go Naked and Check Yourself is to take the stigma of embarrassment out of checking yourself, because early detection can prevent long term issues. All proceeds from this year’s event will benefit The American Cancer Society, Livestrong, Young Survival Coalition and Move for Hunger. This year’s event raised over $10,000 for these non-profit organizations. The event was sponsored in part by The Lingerie Alliance and leading designer brand for intimate lifestyle products, LELO.
