Last month, industry professionals convened in New York for the lingerie market, centered around the biannual Curve trade show.  A host of indie and big-name brands displayed their fall collections for buyers and press alike over a whirlwind three days. I always look forward to the show. It’s a chance to catch up with the designers I’ve known for years and to see how they have evolved their collections yet […]

It’s not going to shock anyone when I say this, but I have a pretty extensive lingerie collection. While some of my purchases do wind up on TLA as lingerie reviews (speaking of which, I plan to get back to doing those soon), the vast majority of what I buy never makes it onto the blog. Rather, I just add it to my general lingerie body of knowledge. That way, […]

It’s hard to describe just how much I love lace right now. I’ve mentioned a few times around here that there’s this whole, rich world of textiles which has recently opened up to me (primarily through obsessively talking with other lingerie people about fabric), and, quite suddenly, I appreciate lace and embroidery and silk and tulle more than I ever imagined possible. For lace especially, there’s something bewitching about all […]

2014 is almost over, but there’s just enough time to start two more lingerie giveaways before the end of the year. As I’ve mentioned in previous sweepstakes posts, I love being able to collaborate with brands and give my readers access to some truly special items. (you know, the kind lingerie addicts like to dream about). And the luxury label SJ Lingerie is one such brand. Based out of Australia, […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. This is almost certainly the last “Sale Lingerie of the Week” feature until 2015, and so, in commemoration (and celebration!) of 2014, I wanted to end on a somewhat extravagant note. I love featuring luxury lingerie in the weekly sales spotlight. Some of that’s a matter of personal taste (I cannot lie; I love silk and lace), but some of that’s also because […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. One of the things most people don’t realize about the world of lingerie is that, like the rest of fashion, intimate apparel runs in seasons (in fact, I’m already receiving my first A/W 2015 lookbooks right now). But unlike the rest of fashion, lingerie never truly goes out of style. If you’re wearing last years colors or prints… who cares? And out of […]

Editor’s Note: As you’ve no doubt noticed, this year’s trend report is exceptionally late. There are reasons for that, both personal and professional, but I feel it’s very probable that no one wants to hear about the varied and assorted details of my life.  So while I do want to acknowledge that this year’s post is very tardy (lingerie market happened back in August), I also feel it’d be best […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own. I’m not much of a fancy sock person – San Francisco is a leggings and tights kind of city. But it’s definitely been getting warmer, summer’s been getting longer, and I’ve been trying to mix up my wardrobe in general, so I fell in love with the idea of these lace socks.  Unfortunately, the reality fell far short.

Note: I purchased this lingerie with my own money. Marie Jo Lingerie is unaffiliated with this review. I feel like I should start this review by saying that the Marie Jo ‘Catherine’ bra set is one I actually bought for my honeymoon 18 months ago. Though I didn’t really say so here, I was very reluctant about sharing a lot of wedding stuff on TLA, both because I assume most […]

Lace is one of my absolute favourite things about lingerie – I’m absolutely obsessed with it. Its transparent delicacy and floral intricacy are incomparable when it comes to lingerie fabrics – so it’s no surprise how heavily it’s used! However, as far as materials go, it’s pretty expensive, for a variety of reasons. In this article I’m going to give you a brief introduction to this wonderful fabric and hopefully give […]
