The new collection consists of two ranges: ‘At Home‘ and ‘Black Birds‘.
The range ‘At Home‘ uses fantastical colourful patterns to form a kaleidoscope of patchworks, creating a brilliant summer time print, which looks amazing placed next to a black microfibre fabric for party nights.
The ‘Black Birds‘ collection is inspired by the famous 60s film The Birds. Marlies Dekkers have turned this story into a flock print of birds surrounded by swirling foliage, with a black flock print on black mesh fabric.
The highlight of the At Home range is a gorgeous corset with a sporty racer-back and printed panels contrasted with black microfibre. The padded balcony bra has slim bands of black elastic above the cup as a decorative feature, in true Marlies style. Team up the corset or bra with a fabulous g-string or thong to complete the look.
The phrase lifesaver is often over used about everything, from someone having a plaster to being able to buy a cup of tea on a train. But to call a bra a lifesaver is not exaggeration at least not for this woman, whose life was quite literally saved by her bra. What a garment the bra is!
It was certainly clever of the folk at the top of the mountain to realise that someone must have put the bra in the cable car if it was me Id think some female operator at the bottom of the mountain was flirting with me and so Id send back some item of clothing. This would probably lead to a disciplinary hearing and my immediate dismissal. Thank heavens I dont work there then!
Still the most important thing is that shes okay and hopefully shell be reunited with her bra at some point.
Royal Ascot (Ascot was originally called East Cote), dating back to 1711, is the worlds most famous race meeting. Arriving each day in a horse-drawn carriage, the royal family are a regular head turner with Zara Phillips looking particularly elegant this year. The media often spend more time covering the couture of attendees at this major event in the British social calendar.
The dress code for the Royal Enclosure is very strict ladies cannot show bare midriffs or shoulders and they must wear hats whilst their male partners need to wear full morning dress which includes a top hat. In recent years several unfortunates have found themselves ejected for less than appropriate attire. Many people choose to wear formal dress outside the Royal Enclosure though this is not obligatory. In the past to be admitted to the Royal Enclosure one needed to be either a guest of a member or be sponsored for membership by a member who has attended on at least four times. Controversially, in 2007, day passes were issued for the Royal Enclosure with hospitality packages so get saving girls!
Probably, the most popular part of Royal Ascot are the numerous women dressed in their finery and displaying the most gorgeous and eye catching of hats. Like a flock of Birds of Paradise they meander through the crowds champagne in one hand, the press in pursuit, and gloriously oblivious to all of that high class horse racing going on in the background. A most popular and agreeable part of the English year. With over 300,000 people making the trip to Berkshire during Royal Ascot week, it is Europes best-attended race meeting.
The Ascot Gold Cup is held on Ladies’ Day and there is over £3,000,000 of prize money on offer. Not bad for a day at the races!

We humans are an adventurous bunch. A while back we covered the mile high club and the �no-sex onboard� story from Airbus, but that just wasn�t exciting enough for some. The soon-to-be commercial space flights offered by Richard Branson�sVirgin Galactic have been receiving enquirers about the possibility of being allowed to be the first people to have weightless sex. Apparently it wouldn�t be that good (?) as the weightlessness would make the act rather difficult.
I don�t think zero gravity sex would be all that great anyway. Floating around, struggling to keep still, and other images you can conjure up yourselves that I�d rather not type.
Of course all these couples thinking they�d be the first are being very closed minded � how do they think all these aliens that keep visiting Earth come to be? Delivered by alien storks?! I think not! I wonder if aliens have lingerie�

I dont know about you but on my way to work this morning I had to fight my ways past hordes of tired grumpy people, fight for a space on the tube, tiptoe around the feet of those sitting down, avoid eye contact with EVERYONE and listen to the terrible music emanating from some yoof stood nearby. At no point did an attractive girl start pole dancing. But if I had been in Romania this may well have happened. Sigh.
Its an odd thing, but certainly a welcome thing, for men at least, seeing a woman in some gorgeous lingerie, on the way to and from work, and it probably raises more money than bad guitar playing or out and out begging, but apparently its going to be stopped because it constitutes begging and indecent exposure. You can hear the commuters, Nooooo
While Boris may have banned alcohol on the tube Ive yet to hear anything about pole dancing being banned certainly something to think about next time you find yourself on the tube, clinging on to a pole, grimly counting off the stations.
