tights

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Wade & Belle’s “Not Too Tights” ostensibly aim to defeat the muffin top created by tights that are simply too tight. In reality, I think the need for this style of fit goes beyond that aesthetic consideration. The level of discomfort that can be created by having, essentially, a rubber band cutting across your […]

It’s time for another installment of “Lingerie I Wish I’d Bought.” This infrequent feature is exactly what what it says on the title… me sharing the items that escaped my grasp. Why? Because misery loves company. So let’s all commiserate about the beauty we’ve missed out on again together. Amoralle ‘Lilac of Luck’ Robe This robe is the stuff of lingerie dreams. I mean, look at it. Voluminous satin sleeves. […]

Disclosure: I received these tights free of charge. All opinions are my own. One side effect of talking about lingerie all the time is that it’s turned me into a bit of a lingerie snob. I don’t say that as a point of pride or anything; it’s just more of a statement about how I view intimate apparel. When you spend so much of your day looking at bras and […]

It’s genuinely chilly outside now (at least if you live in the Northern Hemisphere), and as much as I’m loathe to do so, it’s time to officially and finally switch over to my winter wardrobe. Goodbye t-shirts and tank tops (at least as anything other than layering pieces). Hello thermals and flannels. The move towards warmer garments includes legwear, of course, and as […]

I love hosiery because of it’s ability to update almost any outfit; a basic skirt or dress can look completely different when paired with a pair of electric purple tights vs. a  pair of skintone fishnets. Hosiery was my first introduction […]

Designing lingerie can be a hard, grueling job, but someone’s got to do it! Not that it’s without its perks, of course. However ,the industry is by no means a cushy one, and often the job is not nearly as luxurious as it seems. There are certain times the workload can get downright unbearable with 18-hour work days, non-stop travel and back-to-back meetings monopolizing your entire schedule, let alone your […]

Here, she takes on one of the top trends for this summer: tattoo tights. I remember getting my first tattoo like it was fifteen years ago… probably because it’s been fifteen years since I crossed over into the ink world. I was 19 and […]

The stockings featured were sent to me by Hosieree.com. All thoughts and opinions are my own. All photos courtesy of Hosieree.com. I’ll admit it. I don’t think I’ve worn stockings since 2003. My obsession with opaque tights for fall and winter excluded, I’ve mostly rocked a bare leg when given the chance of hose or no hose. I’d seen others, like Cora, indulge and share their experiences, but personally, I […]

It’s been a long hot summer here, but I finally stepped outside a few nights ago and got a wonderful shock: for the first time this season, my backyard was full of cool autumn air. While the days are still hot, the gorgeous evenings we’ve been experiencing have me thinking of stockings and sweaters to wear with my dresses during the fall and winter […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. So long summer! It’s been fun, but it’s time to swap our bikinis and flip-flops for something a little more substantial. While we may still have a few weeks until the crisp air settles in and the leaves turn dazzling shades of orange, there is no escaping the premature rush towards the fall season by retailers relentlessly advertising back-to-school supplies, Halloween décor, and pumpkin […]
