Holiday Lingerie Gift Guide Inspired by Aphrodite

Aphrodite is very much a diva, so when channeling her in your lingerie, go as bold as you desire. I looked for big colors, statement pieces, lots of sparkle, classic burlesque and showgirl shapes, and vivacious trims and embellishments. Red is of course considered the color of passion, but there’s no need to ignore other colors and […] Read more…

Holiday Gift Guide: Lingerie Inspired by Agent Carter

In some respects choosing pieces for the Agent Carter gift guide to accompany the Agent Carter editorial has been the easiest of the three, because at the time her story is set (late 1940s moving into the 1950s), women’s lingerie was starting to take on the shapes we’re familiar with today: underwire bras, garments like girdles […] Read more…

Once Upon a Time: The Nutcracker

Once upon a time, on Christmas Eve, a young girl named Clara waited eagerly with her younger brother Fritz for the their family’s Christmas party.
