"Lingerie is the maximum expression of a woman's femininity. Instead of covering a woman's body, we prefer to accentuate it's qualities" -Stefano Gabbana

Well said Mr. Gabbana, couldn't have put it better myself. Although I have not been as daring as I'd like with bringing my underwear to my outerwear, it does get me thinking...

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing this post! BEYOND proud of my good friend Paloma Jonas and her girlfriend Whitney Brown on the launch of their gorgeous lingerie line that is… Valentine.

 

2 words, Vivian Maier. For ANYONE who loves photography, you have to have to buy this book. One of my amazing photographers (Pamela Littky) gave this to me for Christmas this past year and it's among my most favorite gifts. What I love so much about Vivian, is her story is so... enigmatic in a way. In fact, no one even knew she was such a talented photographer, until after she died. She was born in New York City and spent her childhood in between the city and France. She moved to Chicago as an adult and from there spent the next 40 years of her life as a nanny, all the while taking photographs on the streets of Chicago. This book titled Self-Portraits is a collection of images in which Vivian captures herself in some way, a reflection, a shadow, and yes... she took #selfies.

A lover of all things photo, I had to share this super sexy danceteria inspired nightlife lingerie editorial in this months Interview Magazine. It just confirms that I wish I was the age that I am now... but in the late 70's. They had me at high waisted pants and bra tops...

You just can't go wrong with Kiki. Disclaimer, yes this line is expensive... but look how gorgeous it is! Remember what I said about having friends that are major babes? This shoot serves my point, thank you to Miss Kate for a lovely play date of dress up. Now for more...

Skylight Books in Los Feliz makes me a better person. Period. I'm not kidding, every time I go into that wonderland of a store for a casual peruse, I come out with an incredible find. Ready for my first "kick ass art book" post? Yonder by Marnix Goossens. Just hurry up and click "read more" so you can see the rest of this book already...

There is something to be said about simple being sexy. How great does it feel to throw on a tank and some panties and just lounge around? Of course there is a time for fancier underneath attire, but make no mistake about the basics... feeling sexy is also about comfort. This shoot that I photographed is inspired by just that.

I am BEYOND thrilled to share this very special post with you. Ladies, this story emphasizes WHY I started this blog, it's WHY I love what a great piece of lingerie can mean. It's so much more than just what you put on underneath clothes. I hope you find this story, by my dear friend, as inspiring and uplifting as I do. CHEERS to us, to you and to the ever-changing journey of being a woman... enjoy :)
