Note: These pajamas were purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purposes of review. All opinions are my own. In all honesty, silk pajamas were never really something I wanted. It goes without saying I’m a fan of silk: no other fabric quite compares to its flow, sheen and lustre. A good quality silk is the epitome of luxury. Yet to me, silk is incongruous with the act of sleeping. […]
After a few years of attending CURVEXPO here in New York, everything starts looking a little identical. I tire of the same brands producing the same styles in new colors every year. Unless it’s something I would personally love to wear, it’s hard for me to keep focus. Luckily, designers seemed to be a little more adventurous this season. Maybe they’ve realized making the same bland t-shirt bras every year won’t guarantee sales. […]
Disclosure: I purchased these trousers with my own money. All opinions are my own. Luxury is a term thrown around so liberally in the fashion industry, it’s almost lost its meaning. The term can be applied to everything from mass-manufactured synthetic satin to hand-finished silk. One could easily argue it’s fast becoming obsolete.

A blizzard is due to hit the Northeast, dropping up to 2 feet of snow in certain parts of the country.

Every year, I think about collapsing the traditional five Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guides into two or three. Maybe doing two shopping guide for everything that’s under $249 and over $250, for example. And honestly, because I’ve been having so much trouble with time management this season, that may have been a good idea. Yet part of why I like to break out TLA’s Holiday Shopping Guides into so many price categories is because I believe it better conveys the story of lingerie. You can see how trends and patterns and silhouettes change between that $50 guide and that $500 guide. The drape is different. The shapes are different.The levels experimentation, playfulness, artistry – it’s all different.
