August 2009

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.

These “Tramplamps,” individually handmade by the seller who shares their name, are delightfully kitschy! Put one of these vintage girdle lamps on a table, and your guests will certainly think you’re something.
