Lingerie


I am a huge, HUGE fan of all things burlesque, lingerie, pin up girls la di dah. Bettie Page is one of my idols (and look out for a big post on her in the next few days!)


I cannot think of anything sexier than a pair of silk sheer, cuban heeled back seamed stockings paired with a fantastic garter. Honestly. I own a few pairs, and am trying to collect vintage pairs but I never seem to have enough money to buy what I want...

And speaking of lingerie, I have a passion for expensive, well made sets. Full sets. Matching bra, underwear and garters. G-strings, french knickers, boylegs, briefs.... My lingerie drawer is exploding. Especially once you add in all the hoisery, stockings, tights, thigh high socks/tights, leggings arrrgggh! I need a lingerie room, let me tell you!

What are some of your favourite lingerie labels?

Appreciation Bubble:
Digital cameras. Can anyone even remember having to wait to get film developed? The anticipation, the 'wasting' of the last few photos to hurry up to get them developed? The dissapointment when you realise what you thought would be an amazing picture turning out to be truely hideous? God, the horror!!! Of course, nothing beats polariod film, but then again, it was instant satisfaction too, non?

hahah, i really liked this post. I wish i had boobs to get a lingerie set...but at a 32A there really is no point. haha.
Thanks for the comment...you should look around for highwaist jeans, I tried on one pair and they looked incredibly awkward and weird, later i found the pair I have now and I really like them!

Wow, all of those sets are beautiful. Right now I'm looking for a pair of seamed stockings and a corset to wear over my zillions of floral dresses..

The BEST thing about digital cameras as opposed to the old film ones (and even polaroids) is the instant preview, and the delete button (just because you think you look sexy when you're wasted doesn't mean your camera will).

Great blog!

Omg I can't believe you actually saw Jared Leto! I'm so jealous! Did he look hot (I don't even need to ask, really, do I? Lol)??
Love this - Pleasure State make the most beautiful lingerie I have EVER seen. But I can't fit into any of it...If only they made a line with the same glamour and beauty for bigger cup sizes, y'know?

Know that I think about it, the digital camera really is a best friend! To be honest I kinde forgot the old fashion camera's untill I stumbled upon one in the house. After you took a picture there this rad that you need to turn and then you can take another picture. Oh and the lightning on pictures (of ours) was always bad :P!

I adore vintage-style lingerie! I'm desperate to source some pretty but inexpensive sets atm.
RE: cameras, I love digital cameras for practicality, but have bought myself a couple of film slrs recently... they're just so fun to play with... it's kinda exciting not knowing what you're going to get I think

I like Agent Provocateur and I found this new label called Wundervoll which is really cool. I love lingerie with a vintage look to it...

Oh and the camera thing, I totally remember. It still happens to me when my friends and I go rafting and we buy disposable underwater cameras.

I love the vintage style lingerie, especially the satiny pieces....I can definitely remember waiting for film to be developed....and the time I went on holiday and put the film in wrong without realising and NONE of my photo's came out.

Isa said...

ah, I love wearing pretty lingerie. even if noone knows, this immediately is such a good feeling.
I love victoria´s secret and most currently, stella mccartney´s floral lingerie line.

Beautiful, I just watched The Infamous Bettie Page like a month ago...before her I only knew of Dita Von Teese for all things burlesque/lingerie. Bettie Page is actually how I found out about Agent Provocateur.
