My Dream Apartment: the Living Room


1 // 2 // 3 sofa & pillow // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10

Since I'm sleeping in my childhood bedroom (and yes, those Freddie Prinze, Jr. posters are still up! #neverforget) while my belongings are packed away in cardboard boxes, I'm in serious nesting mode. I've gone nuts on my interior design Pinterest board and go to bed envisioning high ceilings and French doors. Specifically, I love the clean simplicity of white furniture because it allows other knick knacks and accessories to shine and gives the room a crisp, fresh feeling. And just as I'm obsessed with fit-n-flare and sassy secretarial sheath dresses, I'm really into modern mid century stuff. Once those two trends are combined and mixed with a punchy bright color, my dream living room leaves a warm, happy impression. Oh, and it's super affordable! It would be easy to thrift some of these pieces, grab others at retro reproduction websites like Thrive Furniture and dive into Ikea for the rest. :)

A little side note...I've been thinking about writing on non-lingerie and non-full bust stuff and this post is an example of one way I'd expand. Lingerie is my first love, but it's not my only one; I was thinking of posting on books I'm reading or the television series I'm currently bingeing on. 

What do you think? How would you feel if Miss Underpinnings covered a range of topics, in addition to the primary lingerie focus?

Countdown to Curve: Looking Forward to Curvy Kate Spring/Summer 2015

Spring/Summer 2015 Curvy Kate "Madagascar"

Like a grab bag, Curvy Kate has a few lines each season that I'm into and the rest, well, I'm not. The Firecracker, the Portia's seasonal color way and Ritzy's Ruby version were all immediate personal favorites. And while I don't usually go for blue lingerie, the navy Princess and Roxie are delightfully preppy. On the flip side, the sparkle-y embroidery pieces and the sour candy colors  -- "frost" and "boysenberry" -- are ones I'll be skipping. I had my usual reaction to the previews for Spring/Summer 2015. They're a mix between pieces I want now and designs that, like the "younger" sets from Cleo and Tutti Rouge, are too bright or too precious for me.

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.
