Miss A Columnist

Agaat Den Hertog, Miss A's mother, is a native of The Netherlands and lives in a small town outside of Charlotte, NC. Before she moved to the United States, she worked as the designer for a major Dutch Children's clothing line. She traveled to Paris, Milan, London and other major European cities looking for new ideas, yarns and colors for the collections. She started making clothing when she was still a child and organized a children's fashion show at her friend's birthday party for the adults.

Agaat's new passion in life is traveling — there isn't a continent that she hasn't explored. When she is home she enjoys spending time in Charlotte, exploring all that the city has to offer.

E. Martini Lingerie In Charlotte

In two weeks it will be Valentine’s Day. The best way to celebrate is by shopping at E. Martini and wrapping your body in their gorgeous lingerie. Growing up in Europe, underwear was a very serious business. Everything had to match and instead of just buying a pair of panties, I always bought a matching slip and bra to go with it. It makes me feel good to put on a feminine set of lingerie before putting on the “outside layer.”

E. Martini sells lingerie, swimwear and resort wear- from hats to beach bags to eye catching cover-ups. I tried on soft and luxurious lounge pants (they come in many pastel colors) with a matching cardigan and top. For summer, one can add shorts made from the same, soft fabric to one’s wardrobe. The bra and panty sets are ultra feminine and delicate. I found one in ruby (below), which is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

The beachwear sold at the store can be purchased with matching cover-ups in bright patterns and colors. The store carries the Swiss brand Hanro, known for its high standards in quality and style. The owner, Eileen Martini, is knowledgeable and very helpful. She makes sure you find the right fit for you.
