What I’m Reading this Week

I haven’t shared a link roundup in a while, but as we head further into the heat and humidity of August (at least in NYC, y’all this weather is my personal nightmare), I thought it might be fun to share some good stuff to browse while we’re huddled desperately in front of the air conditioner.

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 2/29/16: Curvy Emilie Collection by Buttress & Snatch

One of my most-looked-forward-to items on my list of ones-to-watch for 2016 was the launch of the new Curvy range from Buttress & Snatch. The decadent indie lingerie brand has offered custom sizing for years, but they officially launched their fuller-bust and plus-size ranges on their website a few weeks ago.

Fall 2015 Full-Bust Lingerie Wishlist

This week has been a whirl of lingerie activity as brands, buyers, and press arrive in New York City for the seasonal trade shows. I always get into a weird sort of lingerie-time-zone confusion: it’s hot outside (so very hot), Fall/Winter styles are starting to arrive in stores, I’m looking at Spring/Summer 2016, which won’t […] Read more…
