Miss Underpinnings

A HUGE Thank You and Good News

I have the best blog ever. Why? I have the best readers ever. It may sound overly appreciative, but seriously, you guys are the coolest. Reading through your comments on my Where I've Been post, I got goosebumps. Hell, I'm tearing up as I write this...Your support and encouragement has meant the world to me and I'm deeply, deeply grateful to those who courageously shared their own stories or warmly complimented me, my writing or this blog. During this time, when I've felt frighteningly adrift, your gestures gave me a light at the end of the tunnel. I can't express in words how much that's meant to me.

Thank you.  Merci beaucoup. ありがとう. Gracias. большое спасибо.

Lingerie & Loungewear to Get You Through the Blues

I'm digging her pajama bottoms.
Around Valentine's Day and Christmas, a million posts go up exclaiming which pieces of lingerie would make the perfect gift and God knows, I eat those up. However, what about the other 363 days of the year? Why aren't their lingerie lists for when you're unemployed or when you're mad bloated on your period or when your current "boyfriend" happens to be a fictional character in a tv show? Forget the sexy stuff and the cute frills or bows, I'd like to share what I've really been wearing for the last six months. Truth time, bitches.

Where I've Been

Artist: Jeremy Lipking
Well, I think it's safe to say that 2014 has been my best year of blogging yet! Are we all in agreement? Funny business aside, I have to crack these jokes because the last six months have been an utter clusterfuck of horrible and if I stop laughing, I might start crying. When I set out to create Miss Underpinnings, I was determined that it would be my positive, warm little corner of the Internet. I can be a pessimistic, paranoid and anxious person in real life so I promised myself I'd weed that out of the blog. Besides, who'd want to read about my problems on a website devoted to fabulous lingerie?! Thus, when shit hit the metaphorical fan this year, I froze. I didn't want to break my self-imposed rule yet I felt as if writing an upbeat sentence would be as difficult as climbing Mount Everest. I relied on my years of gendered conditioning: when you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Since that didn't work, I've decided to tell the truth -- even if it isn't pretty.

Let's Check Each Other Out on Etsy

Among my friends and family, it's no secret that I have a preeeety obsessive personality so Etsy -- with it's seemingly endless treasure trove of indie boutiques -- is my kryptonite. I spend an embarrassing amount of time each week looking through what's new from my favorite shops and hunting for like-minded people to follow. Etsy recently launched their Pinterest-like "Pages" feature so I've also been curating like a crazy woman with collages on such topics as vintage clothing, personal stationary and of course, lingerie. Are you guys Etsy lovers too? And if you are, please let me know in the comments so I can check out what you're checking out! If you'd like to peek at my profile, it's here. :)

Hear Ye, Hear Ye: The Sunday Intimates' Retail Website Launched Today!!!

You guys, it's UP. It's finally here: Sunday Intimates, an amazing new brand from California, launched their website today and their Spring/Summer 2014 collection is now available for pre-order! No joke, I want it all. All of it. Every damn piece -- from the floral kimono to the glittery gold longline bra to the polka dot pajama set -- feels as if it was made just for me. If you haven't heard of this indie company yet or want more information on the darlings behind this brand, I highly recommend you peruse Sweet Nothings' exclusive interview with them. I also had a chance to try on this season's designs during Curve Autumn/Winter 2013 show so if you'd like to know what I thought of the comfort or fit, take a look at this post. :)
