Today’s Ask the Addict feature is inspired by a question from longtime reader Orilonise, who asked via Facebook, “I love lingerie, but usually keep it to my more professional or formal attire. How do you suggest women wear lingerie with casual clothes like jeans?” What a great question! Though I often write about the sexy stuff here on the blog, the honest truth is […]

I’m in Love.

I don’t usually post personal things to the blog (mostly because I assume you come here for the lingerie and not for me), but some days I can’t help but write about the really important things that are happening in my life…even if they are especially intimate. As I’m sure you’ve noticed from the title, I’m in love. I’ve never been in love before. I thought I’d been, but I […]

By now you’re read my recap of all of next seasons lingerie trends, and you’ve probably seen my videos spotlighting Dirty Dolls vintage-inspired lingerie and Luxe Innovations luxurious silk lingerie bags.  So to round out my coverage of one of the biggest lingerie trade shows in North America, I thought it time to post my last three “sneak preview” vids…my last one’s until next season anyway!  Take a look at […]

Continuing my coverage of Curve Las Vegas, the semi-annual lingerie trade show, today I’m featuring an interview with the very lovely Chelsea Logan of Luxe Innovations/Boa Noite. I’ve mentioned Chelsea’s luxurious, handmade lingerie bags several times before, and she’s on my list of “5 Things Every Lingerie Addict Needs That Aren’t Lingerie.”  In this video, she gives us a sneak peek of her upcoming collection. What’s your favorite lingerie bag?

I’ve spent the past several days in Las Vegas celebrating Valentine’s Day with The Boyfriend (who was kind enough to shoot this video) and attending CurvExpo, one of North America’s best and largest lingerie tradeshows.  Dirty Dolls, a retro-inspired brand out of New York, spared a few moments to talk with me about their latest collection. See if you can figure out why I love it so much.

Just a few hours ago, I finished my first-ever viewing of The Graduate, the classic 1967 flick starring Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman.  While I enjoyed the plot and story well enough, what really blew me away were the iconic lingerie scenes, including the famous one pictured up above of Mrs. Robinson slipping on her nylon stockings. After recognizing the manufacturers of two of […]

Originally retailing at £89 (approximately $142), this is one of the pieces that put the UK brand on the luxury lingerie map. On the right side, we have Frederick’s of Hollywood’s Runway Burlesque Chemise, an unabashed remake which retails at a somewhat more […]
