                Well, I was going to write an introduction for my upcoming event, Fishnet Stockings week, but I’ve found something better to talk about instead. As you can tell from the title, this entry is the fourth in a series. In all of my previous “Look for less” posts, I’ve had to settle for finding a similar item, something which carried the same […]

While we’re on the subject of sheer mesh onesies, a certain someone I know expressed an interest in the all-but-sold-out Stella McCartney Louise Dancing Bodysuit. Well…if that person is still interested, I’m sure he’ll be pleased to find out that Lille Boutique is currently selling it for 50% off. Happy shopping!

However, with the current state of the economy, spending upwards of $35.00 on a single pair of tights just seems like a bit much. So what’s a trendy Stockings Addict to do? Find a budget “knockoff,” of course! I’ve written reviews about Jonathon Aston before, and while this particular post won’t be a […]

Bebaroque is a luxury hosiery brand founded by Scottish designers Mhairi McNicol and Chloe Patience in 2007. The Bebaroque trademark is intricacy–ranging from hand applied metals and fabrics to hand drawn designs. During my European adventure, I purchased a pair of feather tights in turquoise from the Winter 2008 collection and, though I haven’t worn them yet, they’re on the “shortlist.”         Let’s start with a few […]
