After years of actively avoiding anything beige (at least partially because of how it’s always advertised as ‘nude’), I feel as though I’ve rediscovered the color. Despite the marketing, beige, blush, and soft rose are so much more than “invisible” colors for certain skintones. These shades can be elegant, timeless, glamorous even, and […]

One of the things I’ve never shared about these Lingerie of the Week features is that they share a dual purpose. Yes, part of the point is to share what I think is new, cool, exciting, and interesting. But the other part, the other purpose, to these posts is to create a sort of archive, a font of lingerie memories that others can access. So often, I recall a brand […]
