Every Photo Friday is super exciting to me, but this one is really special.  For the first time ever, I’m featuring the work of one of my readers, fellow lingerie addict and fashion blogger, Ligeia Noir. I can’t recall when Ligeia and I first crossed paths, but I’m pretty sure our mutual love of lingerie had something to do with it.  Her excitement for art and fashion is nearly tangible, […]

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads reading my blog!  I’m a Daddy’s girl at heart, and I know that I could never have become the woman I am today without my pop’s kindness, love, and support.  He even reads the blog! A few days ago, I posed a question to one of the many listservs I’m a member of.  In it, I asked for men to tell me what […]

A few months ago, during a sightseeing trip to Portland, I ran across several stunning photographs of corsetted women in flowers and skull makeup at a vintage clothing shop.  I could never remember who shot the images, but I do remember being absolutely captivated by them. So imagine my delight when I rediscovered the artist behind those photographs at YUHMM Magazine (warning: NSFW).  666 Photography captures the retro, pin-up, and […]
