With February 14th just around the corner, every lingerie, chocolate, and jewelry store around the country (if not the world) is gearing up for the epic Valentine’s Day rush. With that in mind, I wanted to change up today’s lingerie and stockings carnival by asking you a little question… If I gave $1,000 to spend on lingerie, what would you buy? Need a few […]

After choosing our stage names in the first burlesque class, it was time to decide on other important details… like song, character, and costume. I knew right away that I wanted my act to involve an afro, an attitude, and something skintight and shiny. I also determined that I wanted Velvet La Soie (my character) to be a Louisiana native, a tough-yet-classy broad who could kick your ass six ways […]

Ugh. I’m sick.

For the past month or so, I’ve been feeling really cruddy. Sore throat, epic fatigue, pounding headaches and the like. I chalked it up to stress, seasonal affective disorder, or even outright laziness, but after feeling a little too bad for a little too long, I finally buckled down and went to the doctor — where I learned that I have “The Kissing Disease,” aka Mononucleosis. The good news is that […]

In the past few weeks, I’ve had several people ask me for tips on how to better organize their lingerie. Believe me when I say I haven’t got a perfect system yet, so we’ll probably revisit the subject more than once this year. However, these five steps have definitely helped me get started. As always, please feel free to comment with tips and tricks of your own. I definitely want […]

Hi everyone, I know two posts in one day is a bit unusual, but I’m really interested in getting your feedback about something. For the past year or so, I’ve been updating my blog everyday. I love writing and I love lingerie so I never run out of things to talk about, but I’m not sure if I can keep this pace forever. Before making any changes though, I want […]

Way back in July, I mentioned lusting after these Cette Spirano Panythose available exclusively at Brabarella (I love that name, by the way!). Well, when it comes to lingerie, I almost always get what I want, and so these tights arrived at my doorstep just last week. Made in Belgium, the Cette Spiranos are composed of a 93% Nylon, 6% Lycra, 1% Cotton blend and are availble in three sizes […]

My, oh my does the time fly! Even though I attended my first burlesque class several weeks ago, I haven’t had a chance to sit still long enough to write out my experiences. Let me fix that right now. I am smack dab in the middle of a six-week Introductory Burlesque class taught by the famed and fabulous Indigo Blue of Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque. In six weeks, […]

This week’s question came via Twitter from stephintoronto: Q: Sweetie, I need help finding plus-sized backseam stockings for garters. Any thoughts? I wear L-XL, but hate a stocking that is too small. Thanks! A: Hmmm… I rarely recommend them, but I think Leg Avenue would be your best bet. They’re the only manufacturer of plus-sized, stretch, backseam stockings I’m able to find. Hips and Curves has the nude/black version in stock […]

Of course you do.  ;-) Knickers Blog [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct], one of my favorite reads, is holding a drawing for £150 of lingerie from Fleur of England (makers of the robe pictured above). All you have to do is help them out by completing a very brief reader survey. As an added bonus, everyone who finishes the survey receives five exclusive lingerie […]
