A few weeks ago, I had the incredible honor and privilege of being invited to Paris by Promosalons, the global network of French tradeshows, to visit some of their flagship exhibitions including Maison & Objet, Mode Who’s Next, Bijorhca, and, of course, the Salon International de la Lingerie. Along with a delegation of journalists from the U.S., Korea, China, and Japan, I was taken on a whirlwind tour of […]

I’ve been feeling a little out of it lately. A combination of moving and fatigue and not having really taken a vacation since my honeymoon, all seem to have caught up to me at once and for the first time in years, I’m finding myself struggling a bit.

Among wearers and makers alike, there’s a distinct split between the individuals who insist upon it and those who think it’s unnecessary.  For those outside the community, the phrase can be a little confusing. I know that when I first encountered the term my immediate thoughts were of salt and pepper rather than any kind of […]

I spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the state of plus size lingerie last year, from the way it is marketed to the types of pieces that are available. In retrospect, I feel like it was a good year for plus size lingerie. We had some progressive ad campaigns spearheaded by outspoken and unconventional spokesmodels as well as fashionable new lingerie pieces. That said, this year there are […]
