Things that annoy me…

…companies which attempt to pass off other brands as their own, “private” label. Yes, StockinGirl, I’m talking to you. As you know, I’ve raved about StockinGirl in the past. I just ordered a pair of stockings from them other day in fact. But I keep noticing, with increasing (and disturbing) regularity, that they are calling quite a few items their own when they simply aren’t. For example, their printed tights, […]

500 readers!!!

So I was checking my profile views today, and I have 500 readers! Yay! In celebration, I’m going to have a giveaway. It might be a garter. It might be a pair of stockings. It might be a suspender belt. But, whatever it is, I promise it’ll be something really cool. All you have to do is comment on this entry. All comments must be received by July 7, 2008. […]

Kiss Me Quick is a retro lingerie house out of Australia. All pieces are hand-crafted by designer/owner Simone Wale who says her lingerie is about “giving women something that is both classy and sexy, not Gent’s Magazine sexy, something more vintage, something with a bit more tease, a bit more of a thrill.” Ms. Wale, I completely agree.

It turns out La Perla hosiery really is quite nice. Are they worth the original price of $47.00? No. Are they worth the 30% off sale price of $32.99? Not quite, but they come pretty close. There’s a lot to like about these sheer thigh highs. The 82% Nylon/18% Elastane blend feels nice on the leg, pleasantly snug but not uncomfortably tight. At 15 denier, they have a nice, subtle […]

I just received an announcement from Dollhouse Bettie saying that they will soon release an exclusive, custom, handsewn design created entirely (after much painstaking labor) by the owner, Michelle. I think the garter apron/button bra set is rather cute. It reminds me of a cross between a country girl and a 1950’s housewife. No word yet on the price or if it will be available online as well as in […]

how exciting

I’m getting close to 500 profile views. I’m sure that doesn’t sound a lot to more experienced bloggers, but it’s about 499 more than I ever expected. As a sign of my appreciation, I may have to do something special to thank my readers. Stay tuned. For now, though, enjoy the kinky pinup art of Tyson McAdoo.

You need to buy a pair of hosiery gloves. Now. There. You can skip the rest of this entry if you like, but at least you’ve been told. Hosiery gloves are like preventative medicine for your stockings. The very last thing you want to do after spending money on quality hosiery is snag it with a hangnail. Believe me. I know. For years, I practiced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s a […]

Whoohoo!

I got a mention from A Slip of a Girl’s blog! Since I enjoyed reading her blog before I even thought about starting a blog of my own, that’s a very high compliment. Thanks so much for the shoutout. :-)

My first two tries with garter panties have been more than a little disappointing. Nevertheless, they say the third time’s the charm, so I threw caution to the wind and bought the pair above from Etsy seller On The Inside. Details are scanty on her web store, but she says the panty is made from red mesh with black lace trim, and has four satin loops with detachable garters. They’re […]
