Lady Gaga in Lingerie

Courtesy of KumiMonster, I’ve managed to satisfy my craving for Alexander Skarsgård, Lady Gaga, and luxe lingerie at the same time. It’s all there in Lady G’s latest video, Paparazzi.

Wolford on Sale

It only happens twice a year…Wolford Boutique London just put all their Trend & Pattern hosiery from the previous season on sale at 50% off. Wolford’s reputation in the hosiery industry is unmatched. The sale represents not only an opportunity to buy some quality hosiery at an excellent price, but also to purchase a limited edition piece before it’s retired permanently. If you’d prefer to shop stateside, Bare Necessities also […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.  Stocking Vixen teasingly referred to me as Yoda on her latest blog entry after I was able to positively identify the Wolford Paloma tights. I laughed, but now I’m starting to wonder if there’s some truth to that. I can hardly look at photo of lingerie anymore without trying to identify what the model has on. Case in point, I was visiting Violet Blue’s […]

In the fourth and final installment of my Runway to Realway series, we’ll take a look at the super-chic floral trend. Now, I’m not much of a girly-girl, and you’ll never catch me wearing flowers from head to toe. However, like the other trends I’ve discussed here, I do believe the floral look is workable if it’s confined to only one area–like your legs. So where can you look for […]

Happy Pride!!!

I’m just getting back from my very first Seattle Pride Festival, and I’m so stoked! It makes me feel incredible when thousands of people get together to peacefully celebrate love, life, and happiness. The parade was pretty long, at about 2.5 hours, but the energy was high the entire time. I believe I’m still a little glowy. :-) If you want to get your pride on, why not take a […]

One quick post before I get all dressed up for Seattle Pride… The very talented SugarKitty of SugarKitty Corsets has just listed two sample corsets for sale on her website. Unlike most of the corsetieres I post on my blog, I can personally attest to the quality of SugarKitty’s work as I own two of her custom made pieces. The first corset, named “Miss Rose” is priced at $175.00 and has […]

Recent Acquisitions

Though I’ve cut back dramatically on my lingerie purchases in the past year, I still can’t resist a pretty girdle or a sharp pair of tights…especially if they’re on sale. I’ve bought a few new pieces in the past couple of months, and (apart from exercising my exhibitionist tendencies) I’m listing them here in case anyone would like for me to write a review of a particular item. Black Spartans […]

When big companies, like Figleaves, run a sale, there tends to be a “trickle-down” effect. Other (often smaller or less well known) companies will also dramatically reduce their prices just to keep up. It goes without saying this is great for credit-crunched consumers. Below, I’ve listed a few items that have been recently marked down. Made by Niki ‘Magic Bum’ Girdle Mimi Holliday “Bombaletta” silk chiffon bra and thong b.tempt’d […]

Figleaves Sale

Both Figleaves US and Figleaves UK are running heavily hyped sales right now. Most of their items are only 20% off (which doesn’t even count as a sale in my book), but I don’t really see any standout pieces…except for these Levante Amore Tights. A backseam, a reinforced foot, and heart & bow details at the ankle? I swoon…

Vintage e-bay find

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an e-bay auction, but I believe I’ve stumbled across one you all may like. The item in question is a vintage Lady Marlene corselette (though it’s listed as open bottom girdle), size 34C, black, six garters, sheer lace cups and midriff. As of right now, the highest bid is only $11.50, definitely making this a piece worth keeping an eye on.
