A few weeks ago, just before the big Orchard Corset meetup in fact, I did a quick photoshoot with Lance and Trixie of Old School Pinups in Pike Place Market. Not coincidentally, Old School Pinups is also where the event was held, so it was a real treat to get to know the space before I played hostess to a crowd. In case you haven’t been there (and I have […]

Last month, I had the pleasure of another pinup photoshoot with the always amazing Paul O’Connell of POC Photo and The Shanghai Pearl. We work so well together that I’m always excited to share the images and this time is no different. Though we’ve shot together several times before, I think these may be my favorite images to date. Credits are as follows – Model: Me, The Lingerie Addict. Photography: […]

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of shooting with Edson Carlos, who’s not only a noted pinup photographer in his own right but also the founder of the popular websites PinupLifestyle.com, AltCollective.com, and RetroLifestyle.com. Edson’s known for a really high contrast, super-bright style of photography (I’d almost call it ‘blown out’), one that not many people, especially in the pinup scene are doing. We did 2 sets together […]

Last month, during my most recent trip to NYC Lingerie Market, I took some time to have a daylong photoshoot with the world-famous pinup photographer Viva van Story. This was only my second shoot with Viva, but I really love working with her because she knows how to make the non-model types (like myself) feel fabulous and confident and comfortable in front of a camera. I know that, no matter […]

Today’s blog post was supposed to be a lingerie gift guide. After all, it’s the holidays, and I wanted to share some of my fave picks under $100 with you.  But something happened over the weekend. Something that’s been happening a lot more often in the last few months. It’s something I just can’t keep silent about anymore because I find it disturbing, hypocritical, and just plain wrong. And quite […]

I’m sure you know this already, but I love lingerie.  Like really, really love it.  It’s the sugar to my sweet iced tea, the cornbread to my collard greens, and the meringue to my lemon pie (oops…my Southern is showing). But the one thing I love even more is helping people to find the lingerie that works for them.  There are literally hundreds of lingerie designers out there, and I […]

I owe you all some goodies…namely the video of my first ever burlesque recital, and some photos from my August shoot with retro goddess Viva van Story.  My Facebook fans saw these treats first, so if you’d like to be in on the action, don’t forget to follow me over there!

Photo Credits: Keena Royale by Viva van Story Today’s article is on a subject very close to my heart.  I’ve been debating if I should write this for weeks now, but after talking with other women of color in the lingerie industry and doing a bit of soul-searching myself, I’ve decided there’s no way I can’t not post this.  The Lingerie Addict is about all aspects of the lingerie community, […]

If you’re one of the awesome people keeping up with my Facebook or Twitter, you already know this news.  Every blogger’s nightmare just came true for me last week…my laptop stopped working.  No warning, no preface, just bang!  And now my screen doesn’t light up anymore. I’m trying to look on the bright side…the actual computer is still okay, and parts like screens are replaceable, but still…with BlogHer and CurveNY literally right around the corner, […]
