Sexy Lingerie from Target

So I was in Target the other day to pick up a few essentials when I decided to make a quick pass through the lingerie section. I now believe Target is trying to give the luxury lingerie manufacturers a run for their money. I saw several pieces which reminded me of items from other, more expensive collections (these ruffled boyshorts, for example). I’ve not tried anything on yet, but I […]

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love my new job. And one of the many, many things that makes it better than my old job is the fact that I can wear tights to work. I’ve already talked about some of my favorite stockings in the article “Nude Hosiery for Women of Color,” but now that it’s starting to get a bit chilly outside, I’ll need to […]

                      Just when I thought this luxury tights line couldn’t get any more luxurious, they start making bodysuits. And what wonderful bodies they are. You can view the rest of the Autumn/Winter ’09 Collection here. My favorite tights are the Babooshka Black and Rapunzel Gold, but the Eva Body wins the game.

Major trend alert, nylon lovers…embellished tights will be HUGE this Fall/Winter 2009 fashion season. Designers from Doo Ri to Dior were parading sequined stockings down the catwalk, and I am in lust with this trend. Embellished tights serve my undernourished appetite for glitter and sparkles while still remaining entirely wearable. I may not be able to work a sequined dress, but I am 100% certain I can rock a pair […]

What I’m Reading

Fashion Gone Rogue focuses on high-end ad campaigns, editorials, and covers, and occasionally posts some really spectacular lingerie photoshoots like this one with Isabeli Fontana. Emilio Cavallin’s Flickr page is the place to go to see what this hosiery designer is coming out with for the new season. I’m really digging his unisex tights. Gloria Brame’s Oversexed Blog is my new stop for vintage erotica. Dr. Brame is also a […]
