The 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (aka my favorite Christmas tradition) airs tomorrow on CBS at 10/9c. I was able to get a few preview photos, and I’ve posted my fave looks below. Come back tomorrow to tell me what you thought of the show, and to see my top five holiday lingerie shopping picks from the VS website!
Attention fellow stockings addicts! Check out this fabulous Etsy find from Israeli design team Post. I already dig the tattoo trend, and screenprinting legwear is just so fashionable. Plus, the price is spot on. Now I just have to decide which pair I want to try first! Suggestions?
I don’t know why I’ve been in such a fetish-y mood lately. Perhaps I’m a bit overdue for a visit to my local dance club? Regardless, best to get these “kinks” out of my system now, before the Christmas shopping posts start on December 1st! Cheeky Panties and Quarter Cup Bra $280 by HMS Latex The “Bellboy Latex High Waisted Suspender Shorts $210 by Hello Dolly Latex Zahira Torsolette $430 […]
You could call 2009 the year of ModCloth. Started by two college students out of their dorm room in 2002, Modcloth is now the go-to place for vintage, vintage-inspired, and indie clothing. They also carry an excellent selection of tights, leggings, and socks. Here are a few of my favorites… Gnome Alone SocksAren’t these just the cutest knee high socks ever? Winter Prep Thigh Highs in Dark CharcoalI’m really digging […]
I’m not sure about other parts of the country, but here in Seattle it’s pretty cold and damp. Too cold and damp for my regular tights to keep me warm. So what do I do when nylon won’t suffice? Switch to wool sweater tights, of course! Last summer, I picked up a pair each of the Stockingirl Amanda Ribbed Merino Wool tights and the Vanessa Thick Cable Knit Tights. Imported […]
I love discovering new hosiery and these hand-dyed, hand-printed tights from Helsinki, Finland-based design duo Zukale & Huoviala [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears defunct] are quite the find. Limited edition, affordable luxury… what’s not to love?
Vicki at La Magia [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct] just sent me these brand spanking new pictures of Kiss Me Deadly’s Autumn/Winter lingerie range. These pictures are so new that they’re not even on the KMD website yet! I think the Jezebel longline knicker (i.e. highwaist panty) may be my favorite piece of the entire collection, but the L’Amour steel-boned corset style basque runs […]
Maybe it’s an early case of holiday fever, but after posting those TopShop Sequined Hotpants a few weeks ago, I haven’t been able to get sparkly, spangly skivvies off my mind. Alas, I have a little too much “junk in my trunk” to make booty shorts street-appropriate, but I am checking out their more modest sibling — sequined leggings. Like many popular trends, this look is available at every price point. […]
Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, the website for La Magia appears to be defunct. I’m sure you all have noticed that the same few stores get mentioned again and again on this blog. There’s a very good reason for that, and it’s not just because they carry the kind of old-fashioned lingerie I crave. These stores also have the best customer service of any business I’ve worked with on […]
For my new readers, Falke is a high-end German hosiery company famous for combining comfort and style. The quality, durability, and fashion-forwardness of Falke is on par with that more well-known luxury hosiery brand, Wolford. My most favorite hold-up stockings of all time are made by Falke.Earlier this year, I took a look at Falke’s Spring/Summer 2009 Collection, and I’d be remiss not to not give the same treatment for […]
