I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of a mesh dress. Obviously, it’s perfect for outerwear as part of a layered look, but a sheer dress is also excellent as lay-around-the house loungewear. Universal Standard’s Thames Fog Dress is a recent discovery, but I’m already plotting how it’d look in my wardrobe. The black or plum would be great paired with a more opaque slip or chemise […]
I had the chance to preview Fantasy’s upcoming collections at this year’s International Lingerie Show, and immediately fell in love with the ensemble featured. There’s this idea that budget-friendly lingerie brands can only do the super-skimpy, super-sexy things, and while that’s fine, variety is good too.

I’d love to go the beach or lay poolside…without worrying that I’m wearing the one swimsuit I do own to […]
I’m packing to leave for BlogHer tomorrow (I’m a speaker this year!), so there’s just enough time for a very quick Lingerie of the Week before I dash off and decide which of the roughly 6 skirts currently sitting in my suitcase are actually going to come with me. Earlier this week, Karolina asked how I stay passionate about lingerie despite looking at lingerie all the time. I made a […]
