Happy Holidays from The Lingerie Addict!


Happy Holidays to all my readers! I hope you get everything thing you wanted…and then some!

For my part, I want to thank you for the best gift of all…the gift of your time. There are so many other places you could be, but you choose to visit me, and for that I am immeasurably grateful.

If you’re lucky enough to get lingerie for Christmas, please tell me here! I’d love to hear about your goodies. :-)

Yours Always,
Treacle

Skin Lingerie Sale at Hautelook

Psst…don’t forget to enter the Playful Promises Lingerie Giveaway!

Katie at Knickers Blog gets the credit for telling me about this sale.

Skin, a neophyte on the lingerie and loungewear scene, creates undergarments that are best described as simply sensual. I particularly love the soft fabrics and sophisticated shapes because they’re all about enhancing every woman’s natural beauty.

Access to the sale is by invitation only and pieces are selling for up to 70% off retail price (the stockings above were $90, now $27). At the very least, I think it’s worth signing up to see an alternate perspective on lingerie.

So…what do you think of those stockings? Boring? Or Beautiful?

Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guide: Pin-up, Burlesque, & Retro Lingerie

Hey! Don’t forget to enter the Playful Promises Lingerie Giveaway!

Between Mad Men, Dita von Teese, and the rebirth of Burlesque, people are getting passionate over all things vintage. I’ve posted a few of my favorite throwback designs below, but I want to know what you think of this trend.

Yay or nay…is retro lingerie here to stay?

Jonathan Aston: $11.81
Nothing says “pin-up” like a pair of backseam stockings, and I adore the vintage-inspired fancy heel on these.
Figleaves: $96.50
Dita von Teese’s second collection for Wonderbra, this festive red bra and high waist garter belt (looove those button details!) is sure to please.
Babygirl Boutique: $123.90
I go ga-ga for sheer lingerie. Done well, it’s sedutive without being slutty. Plus, everything in this range was designed by Bernie Dexter!
Hepburn & Leigh: $53.55 (with discount code WELCOME)
Kiss Me Deadly makes yet another appearance on the Lingerie Addict’s blog. I own this girdle dress in two different colorways, and it’s the perfect blend of practical and provocative.
Cameo Intimates: $89.76
While I don’t yet own this garter panty, I did review the stretch bullet bra here. A bullet bra and full cut panty not only represent classic pin-up, they’re flattering on almost every figure.

Secrets in Lace: $52.99
Did I mention I loved sheer lingerie? Even better than sheer alone is sheer with some accompanying detail…like the pleats on this pin-up brief.
What Katie Did: $103.31
What Katie Did is bringing the bullet bra back in a BIG way after several recent features in Vogue. This set is both classy and captivating.
FairyGothMother: $314.59
A newcomer on the luxury lingerie scene, I am already enamored of Cadolle’s slinky take on your grandmother’s favorite girdle.
Looking for vintage-styled dresses to wear over your sexy new retro lingerie? Here are three that caught my eye…

Trashy Diva: $143

Heartbreaker Fashion: $55

Modcloth: $137.99

With a blog named Confessions of a Lingerie Addict (née Stockings Addict) I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that I love lingerie.

This next giveaway comes courtesy of Playful Promises.  If that name sounds familiar, it’s because I mentioned them in the post 10 Beautiful Bra & Panty SetsPlayful Promises is known for it’s quirky, flirty lingerie made for women “who are confident enough to not take themselves too seriously and know that life is there to be lived.”
