Looking Ahead: Happy New Year!

2013 has been an interestingly mixed bag.  A burglar Spiderman-climbed into my apartment last January, and yes, I haven’t let it go and I still hate him to a degree I’d not previously thought possible.  Then again, I met so many awesome, kind, and crazy-talented people in the lingerie and fashion industries, both virtually and […] Read more…

Review: “Betty” by Elomi

In discussing Elomi previously on the blog I’ve mentioned that for a while I kept forgetting I could wear the brand!  I’ve only grown into their size range in the last year and a half or so, so even though Elomi has been a major player (or indeed, one of the only players) in the […] Read more…
