Women of Mystery: The Actress

Retired from operatic stage — ha! Living in London — quite so! Your Majesty, as I understand, became […] Read more…

Once Upon A Time: The Sleeping Beauty

Once upon a time, there lived a King and Queen who longed for a child. At last their dream came true, and a baby princess was born, whom they named Aurora. The King and Queen invited distinguished guests from all over the land to attend the baby’s christening. Among the guests were a number of powerful fairies, all of […] Read more…

Holiday Gifts- Lingerie Inspired by The Nutcracker

Yes, I staged yesterday’s Sugar Plum Fairy editorial mostly so I could say “Kingdom of Sweets” multiple times in all seriousness. Also, y’all, apparently it’s cool among adult dancers to roll their eyes and go “oh, the Nutcracker, I’m so sick of the Nutcracker”, and I’m sorry but NOPE. The Nutcracker is awesome. Julia Lambert and […] Read more…

Holiday Gifts- Lingerie Inspired by Giselle

Inspired by yesterday’s second installment of the ballet-themed holiday editorials, here are some of my picks for beautiful white lingerie and loungewear.

This list is pretty much an I’ll-take-one-of-everything-thanks kind of list for me personally– what do you think? Also I made this joke […] Read more…

Once Upon a Time: Swan Lake

Some of y’all know this, but I love ballet. I love it to a borderline obsessive degree. If my body had been on board with my dreams it’s what I’d want to be doing with my life.  One of the things I love most about lingerie is that it can be a way to express […] Read more…

Full-Bust Friendly Party Dresses

Argh, I did this totally backwards, didn’t I?  I talked about the underwear to go with your party dress before I talked about the dresses themselves.  And there are some CUTE party dresses out there right now for ladies with full busts.  I had a terrible time coming up with a concise list (not really […] Read more…
