Review: Bijte Lingerie

Let’s talk about some lingerie-loungewear hybrid pieces. Take, for example, this lovely chemise by Only Hearts (gorgeous lingerie, loungewear, and clothing designed and manufactured in NYC!): It’s soft and draping with an easy sensuality. There’s no corset to be laced or bows or knots to be untied or boning or wires or stiff satins. It […] Read more…

Getting It Together

In my imagination, this is what I, a lingerie blogger, look like on a daily basis: Yes, yes, I know this is how you were picturing me too.  Allow me to shatter the illusion for a moment. Last week some friends from college I hadn’t seen in a while came over to work on a […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 10/19/12

I’ve been a bit anxious lately, but a series of very good, very small, very sweet things just happened. New shoes for upcoming business trip: Cat: Discovering kind friends left the bottle of sloe gin in my freezer Wednesday night: Terrible Cat: Being interviewed by Invest in Your Chest, whose blog is just awesome: After […] Read more…

Sweet Talking: Phoenix

Today’s Awesome Lady is Phoenix, who’s quite literally been a loyal reader since Day 1.  We went to the same high school, appeared together in a production of a Stephen Sondheim musical that I, at least, had no business being in, sang in the school choir together, and generally made it out alive.  Phoenix works […] Read more…

Sugar and Spice Cookies

I’m so predictable when it comes to my baking.

Sweet potatoes, roasted root vegetables, homemade pizzas, biscuits, rolls, bread, pumpkin, and, most of all, […] Read more…

Grumble

This isn’t a real post. There was going to be a real post, and then I woke up to broken Internet again, after it had lasted almost two weeks! A new record. So while I prepare for another epic customer service call with Time Effing Warner, I hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend. […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 10/9/12

It was a bit of an odd day. I have some very good, joyful, exciting things in my near future, one anxious thing in my present, and a very worrisome thing next week. I’ve been careening from delight to despondency every half hour or so, WHICH IS REALLY FUN, and my sleep schedule is getting […] Read more…

A Little Wickedness

Look, I used to get so irritated by the omnipresence of sexy Halloween costumes for women.  It seemed like once we (females) passed trick-or-treat age, the freedom to be creative, scary, fantastical, or over-the-top disappeared, and “shorten your skirt and show your tits” became mandatory.  Ugh, like, don’t tell me what to do, Halloween Industrial […] Read more…
