I’ve got a little mini-goal for 2017 (that I’m almost afraid of calling a goal because I don’t want to fail at it), and it’s having one lingerie photoshoot a month. For years, I’ve been fixated on making sure TLA isn’t about me, Cora Harrington. While I don’t see that changing (my life isn’t interesting enough on its own to sustain a blog), I finally feel comfortable showing more of myself here. Some of you may remember it took me years to even share my real name, so it’s been quite a long journey towards this modest goal.
Amoralle is a brand I adore, not simply because their collections always involve yards of silk, lace, and tulle (not to mention feathers, bows, and buttons), but because they wholeheartedly embraces the fantasy of their brand, the fantasy of luxury lingerie.
Eurovet Americas, Curvexpo’s parent company, celebrated their milestone 10 year anniversary this year with an exceptional show, a gala dinner, and integration between digital technology and the lingerie industry that has been long overdue. Taking place over February 27, 28 and March 1st, this season’s Curve New York saw a buyer attendance of 6% from the same show last year, reflecting a more positive and upbeat mood in the lingerie industry.
Ever since the days of Madonna and Jean Paul Gaultier, lingerie as outerwear has been a fixture on the lingerie scene. Yes, the look may fade in and out of “official” trend reports but wearing chemises, bustiers, and camisoles as part of your everyday attire has never really gone out of style. Countless celebrities, from Halle Berry to Rihanna to Kylie Jenner, have all embraced this look, and it has a constant presence on runways ranging from Dior and Dolce & Gabbana to Marc Jacobs and Givenchy.
A blizzard is due to hit the Northeast, dropping up to 2 feet of snow in certain parts of the country. While things aren’t quite so dire in Southern California (our forecast calls for a shockingly warm 80 degrees), one potential upside to chilly temperatures and mandated indoors time is cuddly, snuggly, caressible lingerie.
