It may be a brand new year, but I’m still finding myself reminiscing about last month when Christmas came early for me in the form of a one-on-one interview with the Queen of Burlesque herself: Dita Von Teese. When I got the news of this awesome opportunity I had to pinch myself: “The Queen of Burlesque and me? Face to face?” I couldn’t […]

Disclosure: I was sent these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I talk a lot about lingerie – it’s my job. I write about intricate laces, luxury fabrics and hand-constructed foundations.

While I […]

Roller derby has seen a resurgence in the last 10 years and has become a popular sport recognized around […]

Twice a year, the Curvexpo lingerie trade show comes to the Big Apple and buyers from up and down the East coast converge for a whirlwind three days full of lingerie, loungewear, and swimwear.

The fashion world loves its designers! These celebrity-status artists excite and inspire their followers each season. But lingerie design is a different animal and though many designers end up expanding into other categories such as shoes, housewares, and fragrances, sometimes they are hesitant to enter such a technical niche market as lingerie.

There’s a reason I write for a blog called The Lingerie Addict. Besides the amazing community that TLA has introduced me to, I also happen to have a serious lingerie addiction. There is something about lingerie that is so personal and sensual while remaining a functional and a necessary part of my life. It is here that many people have an easier time expressing who they really are, since lingerie […]

Our time is precious, so it’s no wonder we look for shortcuts and hacks to make life a little easier so we can focus on the more important tasks at hand.

You could say I’ve been around the block. The lingerie block, that is. I’ve spent a lot of time designing, researching trends, meeting with buyers, and learning about the market. But it wasn’t until this past year when I launched my own online boutique and became a lingerie buyer myself that I got a glimpse into the world of retail and why buyers make some of the decisions they do.
