The stars must be aligned because Scoundrelle’s Keep, a corsetiere I just mentioned in the post before this one, is having a runway sale. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a runway sale is when a designer discounts items which have been previously worn on photo shoots or in fashion shows. Most times, these heavily discounted items are like new, and it’s a great deal if you’ve been admiring a […]
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I’m loathe to call any lingerie impractical. After all, lingerie is all about fantasy and titillation and excitement, necessary things all, but certainly not practical. If your lingerie makes you happy, no matter how odd it may seem to others, then it’s done its purpose and the money was money well spent. Sometimes, however, I just have to say something, and the Elmira corset […]

Louise Black, a corsetiere I mentioned in the latest Etsy Roundup is having a limited time sale on all her underbust corsets–$20 off for the next 10 corsets sold or for the next 3 days, whichever comes first. I’ve been sticking to a pretty strict lingerie budget, but even I couldn’t resist a custom made underbust for $128. If you’ve never heard of Louise Black, I’ve included a few photos […]
What do you think of these preview photos from Maya Hansen’s new corset collection, “Cupcakes Around the World?” I think they look good enough to eat!
A few years ago Wolford released a special edition“Breast Cancer” tight. Oh, how I wish I’d known then what I know now because, as you can see from the photo below, they were simply gorgeous.
Angela Friedman is a corsetier whose portfolio I’ve been following for awhile. She’s the kind of designer who constantly pushes herself, and, as a result, her work just gets better and better. Take a look at her latest creation below. Ms. Friedman’s Etsy store is here, and her LiveJournal (where you can inquire about the set above) is here. Save Save
…but I quite like these Louis Vuitton mongram tights. Photo from The Things That Excite Me
So I was flipping through this month’s issue of Marie Claire magazine, and saw these fantastic shots of one of Beyonce’s stage costumes. Stockings, corsets, and garters? I swoon…
I’ve mentioned it in passing several times here, but there’s a lot going on with me right now. So much, in fact, that I’m afraid I need to put the blog on temporary hiatus until I get a little better adjusted to my new home, my new job, and my new life in general. My blog and you all, my readers, mean a lot to me, so rest assured that […]
