Here are some photos for you of Anna Azerli. She loves to wear pin up lingerie and she also sings a little bit. Her education is in opera, but she says she’d like to sing pop. One of my fans, Nikolaj from Berlin, helped me to find these cool photos.

Anna brags about getting the best stockings out there. She says that she buys special ones that cost at least $100/pair. She claims to be Italian, but that’s maybe partially because her first language is Russian. Her single hit was a Russian song dedicated to Mr. Putin, “Marry me, President!”.

Anna Azerli,in one of her shows, said how she  once got kidnapped by mafia for the purpose of gifting her to a narcotics trade king. The cops managed to rescue her in time. She would’ve been quite a present!

Konmari Method – Organizing Tights, Stockings, Lingerie

December 15, 2016 under Practical

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.

Marie Kondo herself, wearing a dress and black tights. She wears a lot of tights!

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!

How many garter straps can you spot?

November 9, 2015 under Photoshoots

This is my friend, Iryna. She is a model from Vancouver. I got these photos from one of her photoshoots that she did. As you see, there are a lot of garter straps on her stockings. Actually, these are stay ups with the sock part sort of hanging from the welt, but she attached a garter belt on top of it to make it look even more sophisticated. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!

Ukraine: Scandalous Graduation Outfit

Pavlograd Ukraine What you see here happened for real. This is a teenager, 17-year-old Anastasia Fomenko, at her high school graduation. She wore a lace dress and stockings, shocking her whole school.

However, her parents thought this was quite OK and were present at the occasion. This paid off in a sense, the girl got famous instantly and was invited to a bunch of talk shows.

Natalia Wolska models Fiore stockings

May 4, 2014 under Fiore

This is Natalia Wolska, a Polish model, who took some photos with Fiore stockings. Usually bloggers and models do fashion shoots, but it is so rare to see a lingerie photoshoot like this in black and white.

When I see this, it makes me want to dress up in some nice lingerie. I love her garter belt and the way she is holding on to the welt of the stocking. She is simply divine.

In the photo below she is wearing Jovitta stockings by Fiore.

Bustiers – New Arrivals

April 26, 2014 under News

What can be both a top and lingerie? Bustiers! It’s interesting how simply attaching or detaching garter belt straps can make such a difference.

You may wonder, how would it fit and why do we have lacing at the back and hooks in the front? Well, the first time a woman wears it such bustier is when she’ll get a friend to adjust the lacing at the back to fit her figure. All the times after that she just needs to clip it up in the front and it fits perfectly.

These are just a few styles of such bustiers that are now in stock. Green, Pink, Red. If you need another size, let me know. These come with a matching thong, but I didn’t put it on the mannequin because otherwise I’d have to detach it from the corset’s tag.

Soon I’ll be an expert in product photography, but for now excuse my learning curve 🙂

Do you notice that I am attaching this garter belt to stay up stockings? This was actually the only style that has these holes in the top that is so easy to attach the clip to. Otherwise I’d never consider attaching a garter belt to stay ups. These straps, by the way, detach.

Cher in a super hot cleavage corset

April 24, 2014 under Famous

cher in a corsetThe singer Cher is known to have the most extravagant and sexiest outfits, despite her age.

Being quite a trend setter, one of the corsets that she wore actually even got other companies like Shirley of Hollywood to create similar Cher inspired designs.

On the photo here she is wearing a strappy corset to the Golden Globes red carpet event.

You can find this style in the shop section. It’s something that I think would look amazing both as a top and as a piece of lingerie.

Cuban heel stockings on a Friday night

April 17, 2014 under Fiore

Edvige cuban heel stockings with backseam by Fiore 2 Edvige cuban heel stockings with backseam by Fiore

My guy took these candid photos on our Friday night date night. We went to the movie theatre to watch Captain America.

I decided to finally celebrate the warm weather and wore a dark knee high dress. Under it I had a corset with garter straps attached to these Cuban heel stockings.

One thing that I can tell you is that this one piece lingerie looked amazing, but it wasn’t easy to move, sit down, or lean in any way. It felt like I had a bungee chord running from my shoulder to my ankles.

As I was waiting at the movie theatre for my guy to finally emerge from the men’s room, the handle from my umbrella fell off and ended up on the floor. I picked it up, but right away dropped something else. A guy next to me rushed to helped me to get it first, saying that “don’t worry, I’ll get it, you look like you have trouble doing that”. Well, I blamed it on my high heels. That was an awkward moment.

So just a note for those like me, if you are planning to move around and so on it’s better to wear a garter belt and a bra as two separate garments rather than a piece that combines it all.

In case you would like to get a pair of stockings like that, this is a limited edition style by Fiore called Edvige. You can find it in the shop section here.

Anna Sidorova, Olympic Curler, posing in Lingerie

Anna Sidorova curler olympic sochi 2014 lingerie photoshoot

This beautiful woman is one of the professional Olympic curlers who will be competing in Sochi 2014 games.

These series of Russian athletes in lingerie caused some mixed reactions.  Some people said that it’s humiliating or demeaning.

I personally think this is a great idea as long as the women agreed to it themselves.  Considering that the ambassador of the games is Natalia Vodianova, top lingerie model, why can’t athletes do the same thing?

I think that this is actually a great trend to start admiring the bodies of healthy Olympic athletes rather than podium models who are not always healthy.

Merry Christmas!

stockings and lingerie

I had a wonderful Christmas day with my neighbours.

They got me a beautiful fascinator hat as a present and I also got them a whole bunch of different gifts, both practical and nice.

I wore a sparkly pink dress and pantyhose with sparkly pink butterflies. Actually those pantyhose were a gift from one of the fans of this site!
