Someone once asked me what my biggest vice was. Did I have one weakness or addiction that I struggled to keep under control? For some it’s junk food. For some it’s cigarettes. For some it’s something far worse. But for me, I love to shop. Not in an occasional, every-few-weeks kind of way but more of an every-waking-moment-I-can kind of way. Yeah, it’s a problem but luckily I’ve taught myself […]

It seems indie designers aren’t the only ones giving up on traditional fashion seasons. As even the very largest fashion houses begin to adopt a more ‘seasonless’ approach, Agent Provocateur is leading the way in some respects by releasing a new collection, complete with brand new lookbook, every few months. Their latest range is a collaboration with famed shoes, handbags, and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia, who is perhaps most well-known […]

  A few weeks ago, I had the incredible honor and privilege of being invited to Paris by Promosalons, the global network of French tradeshows, to visit some of their flagship exhibitions including Maison & Objet, Mode Who’s Next, Bijorhca, and, of course, the Salon International de la Lingerie. Along with a delegation of journalists from the U.S., Korea, China, and Japan, I was taken on a whirlwind tour of […]

I can’t take the credit for this week’s stunning lingerie discovery. That has to go to Tiah Eckhardt, fellow lingerie blogger and renowned lingerie model (if you’ve seen Dita Von Teese’s latest campaign, then you’ve seen her). Tiah tagged me on Instagram basically saying I had to see this designer, and you know what? She was right. For me, these Lingerie Wishlist features are about showing off the most opulent, […]

Though I can’t sew for anything, one of my hobbies when I really need to decompress and unwind is embroidery. I’m not even slightly good at it yet (my brain has this annoying habit of forgetting everything I’ve learned if I go more than a day or two without practice on a more complicated stitch), but it feels very meditative to me. My mind slips into this weird state between […]

One of the more interesting criticisms that’s been lodged against TLA lately is that we don’t focus enough on “practical” lingerie. And while I certainly understand the reasoning behind that point of view (it was one I used to share), one can’t help but notice that some of the most interesting lingerie also happens to be the least practical. Without going too far on a tangent, the notion of “practicality” […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. 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: This post is sponsored by Dear Scarlett. For the first time since the age of made-to-order lingerie, the full bust bra world is spoiled for choice. Brand after brand is attempting to capture the lucrative DD+ market, with several new labels even veering away from the cheeky patterns and bright colors that were first hailed as fashion-forward styles for full bust shoppers. However, the downside of more choice, ironically, […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. Mosh and Dottie’s Delights are unaffiliated with this review. I have to admit, I am the kind of person who buys holiday gifts for herself as well as for others. Last year, I treated myself to some lingerie, including the Sheer Show Pantsuit from Mosh + Dottie’s Delights. I’d been eyeing this piece for […]

Please note: Some of these photos may be NSFW. There’s nothing like black mesh to turn the body into a living canvas. The stark colorway and transparency emphasize the body’s curves the way few other materials can. Bao Tranchi masterfully manipulates this material into graphic bodysuits with incredible energy. Black mesh dips, dives, and bisects the body into fantastic studies of symmetry that are unlike anything else in the industry. […]
