Result Wear: Shapewear For The Modern Vixen

29 Feb

Result Wear, a new line of shapewear from parent brand dMondaine has emerged recently, featuring several innovative, femme-fatale, vixen-inspired designs that have made their first shapewear collection a huge success amongst the celebrity and socialite set.

Don’t let that level of popularity stop you from peeking at the collections! Glamorous and seriously down-to-business, this is shapewear built for a Classic Gal in the body of a Modern Woman. I see it as being the ultimate versatile shapewear; ladies could wear this with vintage wiggle dresses, underneath a stuffy suit at the day-job, peeking out of  a coat-dress on a second date, or nestled under a warm sweater dress for drinks with the Gals.

The collection features four pieces, all featureing breathable “performance fabric” that “firms and shapes” to create a smooth, flattened silhouette. Cleverly-shaped built-in bras create dramatic supportwithout an underwire, while tummy panels and smoothing bands flatter your body’s natural curves.

My personal favorite is the ‘Victoria’ Mesh Slip, which is meant to be stepped into and pulled upwards for best fit and comfort. I would wear this every single day under any number of dresses and skirts. The ‘Marilyn’, which lifts and smooths, features a contoured hem so that it won’t bunch or ride up your leg, or need to be constantly tugged downwards. ‘Jane’ is a perfect everyday-bra, with contouring cups that lift and plump. The half-length ‘Stella’ slip can be worn with Jane, or separately for ultimate mixing & matching with bras already in your wardrobe!

Lucy B Tempting

26 Feb

Hello Dolls!

I thought I’d show you some of my favorite pin-up lingerie from Los Angeles based-designer, Lucy B. Naughty, flirty, sweet and sultry, the thing I love most about Lucy B is everything!

The satin stripe on the back of the Scantie Panty is so naughty and fun. I mean SERIOUSLY, this is so sexy! I love the shape of the panty too; I bet it’s super flattering and the matching garter belt actually looks comfortable (imagine that). The Sweet Tart Underwire Bra & Panty is super sassy too, all retro bullet bra with modern femme details, satin bows and flattering black mesh.

Ruffle Fever

3 Jan

I have a deep weakness for ruffles and frills.  There is something so sexy, yet coy about layers of gentle folds. I’m sure there is a sexual metaphor in there somewhere!

Loose Buttons: Soapy Sunday Edition

20 Dec

My sweetie & I spent most of the weekend working on our holiday crafts; I do enjoy giving handmade gifts to my family & friends each year.  Usually I bake cookies and other delicious morsels, but this year I wanted to do something different.  I can’t say what we’ve been working on yet, but I can say that my  hands are very soft & clean! I hope to post photos of out handmade goodies after the holidays.

Here are a few tidbits that I came across for this week’s edition of Loose Buttons (Link ♥):

These {Le Chat Noir Knee Socks} are so adorable!

I love these images from {Henri Moshizi}. {#9} & {#5}

This advice on {how to be happy} is very sweet & effective.  “Read good books”; “Take long naps”.  YES!

[On Sundays, look back and] ask yourself what was good about each day and how it could have been better. Use five colored pencils to underline on the calendar, in the appropriate color, whatever you did in the previous week:

Black: I wouldn’t have done this.

Blue: I would have delegated this.

Red: I did this for health.

Green: I did this to grow.

Favorite color: I did this with family/friends, for fun.

After you’ve valued your past week, look at what’s coming in the next week, which should be written in pencil. Is your schedule humane? Are there things you should erase right now? Are important colors missing?

Dreamy!

 

Vavavoooom! This woman's body is amazing!

Super cute 1950's Slice of Heaven!

Alright Guys & Dolls,I’m off to bed-time land.  Here’s hoping the coming week is full of wonderful surprises.

Curvy Kate, launched in 2009, produces stunning lingerie specially tailored to fit voluptuous, curvy women.   This isn’t your average lingerie; these garments (and that’s what they are) are constructed with care to fit & flatter women with great curves.  Their bras range from DD to K cups while their wide array of knickers, high-waisted briefs and hipster panties offer full & ample coverage.
