Review: Playful Promises Bettie Page Retro Lace French Knickers

Review: Playful Promises Bettie Page Retro Lace French Knickers

I received Playful Promises’,  I just could not resist adding a pair of these Retro Lace French Knickers to the basket for myself. I mean, look at them!     Appearance That is black with scalloped lace, which are all my favourite. Little fabric covered buttons? I chose a wedding dress with 83 of the things down the back because I think they’re just the prettiest design detail ever. I quite like the contrast between the opaque top and the sheer bottom too (and yes, they are completely sheer at the crotch). Also, random…

Perfect Communication ~ Harlow & Fox

Perfect Communication ~ Harlow & Fox

I recognize for my abilities, such as the communication skills; the ability to listen, amalgamate and explain.  I traveled earlier in my career, during that time I took time to understand cultural innuendo and incorporate the nuances of diverse expectations into conversation and behavior. I prided myself in my ability to clarify intent with a modicum of diplomacy.  As time goes by, certain talents define you. They are part of your “brand”. So imagine my dismay, when I returned to my house here in Cabo last week to discover that…

Crushin’ It ~ PJ. Salvage

Crushin’ It ~ PJ. Salvage

Crushed, a very familiar word in the past 10 days, which got me to thinking about the real meaning of this term. Thanks to the creativity of the English language, other poetic interpretations of this expression. Consider this: crushed grapes, crushed ice, a romantic crush. I am thinking succor and love.  Add to this PJ. Salvage’s new Crushin’ It collection and I think the word crushed takes us to a whole other place. I had a 1980’s flashback when I have my first look at these crushed velvet separates. Leave…

Women Who Rise ~ Panache Lingerie

Women Who Rise ~ Panache Lingerie

Following the dramatic events that occurred in the United States last week, my two daughters,  telephoned me here in Mexico in similar states of hysteria. They voiced a combination of angst and fear about their future in America with heavy emphasis on their place as women in this new reality, so I reminded them of the pamphlet by Thomas Paine, Common Sense, written during the American Revolution in which he stated that one remains free, despite prison bars, if they never relinquish their ideals. Despite adversity, despite setbacks, and despite…

Wade & Belle Review

Wade & Belle Review

Wade and Belle’s tights are the kind of piece that you love – they can transform a whole outfit and keep you warm on colder days – but hate, since they can be really uncomfortable. No matter what size you are, it will always create an indentation on your body, making it difficult to wear some clothes over it. Or at least that is how it was. Ilissa and Dorian Howard faced the same problems with their clothing, having years of hacking the tights with scissors, they got professional. For…

Tutti Rouge Lingerie

Tutti Rouge Lingerie

I am on the way to Mexico or have already touched down in this tropical beach-side paradise when you are reading this blog. It’s close to 90 degrees in Cabo today, warm enough to ignite the withdrawal stage that always happens after I return. It’s hard to believe that just this past week-end, I was ensconced in the autumn colors that are currently devouring the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. Having spent my last few days in the USA at our family camp on Schroon Lake, the thought occurred…

Intimate Apparel Blue Prints (in White) – Temper Lingerie

Lingerie Briefs Temper Lingerie

Black lingerie has gotten to have all the fun, so it turns out that all-white lingerie can be equally sexy, and can forego the typical classification of being “bridal”.  UK designer Amelia Firth-Waugh has created the brand Temper Lingerie as a way of reinventing the role of white intimates.  It’s no surprise that her creative influence and professional background includes internships at Chromat (see some similarities?) and Alexander McQueen, and a design position with Reckless Wolf. The self-described opulent brand is inspired by New York architecture with select pieces that…
