Attention fellow stockings fans, Rue La La (the same people who brought you that stunning Wolford sale back in August) is presenting another tights boutique this Friday, October 2, starting at 11:00 a.m. EST. Because this is a private sale, you must have an invite. Fortunately, I have plenty. Click here to get yours!
One of the issues that has really snapped my garter in the past is how so many lingerie retailers repackage (and rename!) stockings from major hosiery manufacturers like Cervin. Catherine, owner and designer of the much-loved lingerie label Kiss Me Deadly, recently sent me a very explanatory letter on exactly why so many companies do this. I’ve copied and pasted her e-mail, with minimal editing, below, and I hope you […]
I promise I won’t turn into a clothing blog, but I love, love, love pieces that blur the boundaries between underwear and outwear. Imagine… This blouse… + this bra… + these jeans… + these shoes… = Heaven on Legs! And with that, I’m off to bed.
Because certain people keep making things that I want. Dear James, I’m going to need you to stop being so awesome. Sincerely yours, Treacle
While we’re on the subject of fashion trains I forgot to catch, I never really picked up the sequins trend. Ever since seeing these shiny knickers on Topshop, though, I’ve been wondering if I should expand my horizons. What do you think? Sequined panties + white ribbed tank + sheer, backseam pantyhose? Or have I been drinking the Kool-Aid again? If it helps, here’s the look from the Chanel runway […]
After 18 months of lingerie blogging, I feel pretty confident in saying I’ve worn almost every kind of underwear out there, no matter how extreme or eccentric. Yet, there’s one type of hosiery I haven’t tried yet–suspender pantyhose.Now, I’m finally thinking of giving them a shot. I’ve narrowed my choices down to three selections. What’s your favorite? Or should I leave these risqué tights alone all together? Sheer Luxe […]
What do you all think of this vintage Hillard Hanson bra & panty set? Black nylon, silver stitching, pink embroidery…and only $15? Someone better pick this up before my next payday! ;-)
Jonathan Aston is one my favorite budget hosiery brands. I love them because they replicate looks from the big luxury names like Wolford and Falke for less. A lot less. With this year’s stunning collection, Jonathan Aston has shown they’re a force to be reckoned with in their own right. I see inspiration not only from Wolford, but also from the runway. Two tights in particular are reminiscent of looks […]
That’s right, I said free stockings. Do I have your attention yet? ;-) The very lovely Pandora of retro lingerie shoppe, Pandora’s Choice, is sponsoring a contest for my wonderful readers. One of you will be the lucky recipient of two pairs of seamed stockings in the colors nude and black. To enter, all you have to do is say what item (or items!) from Pandora’s extensive closet you’d wear […]
I have a short list of things I’d like to do before I die. Getting a pin-up lingerie photoshoot with Viva van Story is one of them.
