Hey, I’m going to see my parents. All orders will be shipped after I come back.
These are some photos of me wearing Orense by Fiore. The best part, they are on sale for $4.99! I love how they look on me.
These styles were all limited edition and they are no longer produced. I am selling it off and there will be no more. Let me remind you, I ship domestically for both Canadian and American customers.
Good luck shopping while supplies last! Thank you so much for supporting my online store.
Yesterday I’ve read a NY times article about Madonna. She gave some pretty blunt statements about women, ageing, and even presidential elections. Sexuality didn’t go untouched either.
I thought about her statement saying that it is considered a taboo for a woman to share her own sexual fantasies with the world. It’s an unspoken rule.
She says that if it’s there to please a man, it’s OK, but if the woman is behind something sexual herself and owns it, that’s a taboo.
From my experience, this is true! I had people ask me if I am doing sexy photoshoots because my man likes it. They just assume that there is a man behind it who stirs me in this direction.
When I tell them that this is my own blog / video / idea and so on, they are kind of surprised. Of course later some even wonder if I am a lesbian. Somehow my interests just don’t fit into that gender-appropriate box.
Another stage is when I explain that I am the one who likes stockings and lingerie and I am in a committed relationship, there is this shock of “How does the guy allow this without getting jealous or suspicious?”
I wanted to make it clear to all of you reading, I don’t do any nudity or anything obscene. In the past I had some classy and tasteful lingerie videos on Youtube and of course they are no longer there because people kept on flagging even fully-clothed videos if the outfit involved pantyhose.
New Year’s is almost here, time for me to clean up my house as I traditionally try to do every year. I watched a couple of decluttering / organizing videos and learned about a Japanese method called Konmari.
At first I thought that any person following this method would toss out all the pantyhose except for 2 pairs or something of that sort… but I was wrong, turned out this method, even though highly admired by minimalism, is not about having next to nothing, but about keeping only those items that bring you joy and storing / folding them in a way that is easily accessible.
Konmari method was started by Marie Kondo, a Japanese woman obsessed since childhood with cleaning and organizing. She made a very successful living by teaching women how to clean their house and get rid of clutter despite that her parents initially thought she’ll simply be a good house wife. Keep this story in mind next time you hear someone tell their child that there is no way to make money with whatever they are into…
Marie devotes some time to talk about underwear, socks, and pantyhose! She has a whole method of how to fold pantyhose and she says that tying stockings into a knot is a terrible thing to do because it will stretch them out and ruin them. Same applies to men who roll their socks up into a potato like ball.
To her, underwear is just as important as outwear. One thing you should throw out for sure is worn out and stretched out underwear that doesn’t bring you joy, she says.
For example, Kondo holds a great deal of respect for the home and honors that by never wearing anything schlubby, even to sleep. “If you are a woman, try wearing something elegant as nightwear,” she suggests. “The worst thing”—emphasis added—”you can do is to wear a sloppy sweat suit.”
I immediately thought about what kind of stuff I am wearing to bed and got somewhat disappointed. I wear long sleeves, long pants. But what can I do, I’ve got ice on my window frame! Calgary is really cold and I’ll freeze now wearing a silky negligee.
Marie Kondo is against folding clothes and piling it on top of one another like retailers do. She says it’s better to have it in a drawer stacked vertically, meaning that you’ll be able to pull out any piece without making the wile clothing tower fall apart.
Getting back to pantyhose storage, I may actually change my ways. I used to put everything back into its original packaging, but it does take up a lot of time and space. My main issue about keeping it out of the package is that I’ll forget what brand and what denier this is and then later wonder what it is that I am in fact wearing. I handle many hosiery brands and it is important for me to have an ability to compare them in terms of fit and durability. I’m open to suggestions!
If usually I can get away with wearing shorts and thicker tights in winter, but this week is extremely cold. I put on these shorts and fun tights, but then checked Calgary weather and changed into a more appropriate version – jeans and wool tights under.
Wanted to wear:
Ended up wearing:
I can’t wait for warmer weather to finally be able to dress the way I want! Wool tights, by the way, were a gift from a fan. They are keeping me warm not the first winter already.
I saw online that the show “Teachers” is being criticized for immodest behavior, like for example in one episode a teacher removes her pantyhose in front of her class.
Has anybody seen that episode? If you can point me to it if it is online, I’d like to see! If you saw and it’s not online, at least described what happened.
This is supposed to be a sitcom about a group of female teachers who feel that they are being underappreciated and underpaid.
I was watching something on Youtube about a controversial personal growth training that gave people assignments to get out of their comfort zone, I imagine. Relatives of those who attended are really upset, saying that this is just absurd.
One of such challenges would be to make men wear pantyhose under their pants. Another one was to gather up some courage and show their bare bottom to the whole audience of other fellows who came there to expand their horizons.
I would like to know your thoughts on that. Such workshops tell their clients that they will become more successful in business as a result. Do you think this is a waste of money or there is some truth to it?
