Trying on Wolford Satin Touch 20 – Wearing Pantyhose With Panty in the Desert

September 8, 2012 under Wolford

I had a pair of Wolford Satin Touch 20 that was sent to me by my fan David from Canada.  I didn’t want to just go ahead and wear it to one of my daily errands, I wanted to make a real statement by putting it on.

On my road trip in United States, after seeing thousands of women with bare legs and flip flops, I thought it would be a real statement to put on pantyhose in the middle of a desert.

There was a small problem – this is a very conservative State!  For example, in Walmart book section they had absolutely nothing on business, but there was a whole shelf on religion.  Obviously, I didn’t want anybody to see me walking around in just panties and pantyhose.

I also didn’t want to damage this pantyhose, but the desert ground is quite rough.  For this purpose I wore my flats and just alternating standing on one leg while putting pantyhose in the air on another.

This pantyhose is quite shiny, almost like a sheer version of Neon 40.  They soft, resistant, and stretchy – just the way a good quality pair of pantyhose should be. 

On another note, I’ve been told at Toronto Wolford boutique that even the princess Kate Middleton wears this exact style from Wolford.  Thank you, David, for sending that, it makes me feel like a princess too!

Indifferent service at San Francisco Wolford Boutique

September 7, 2012 under Wolford

Apathy – I feel that this is the best word to describe the attitudes of staff at Wolford in San Francisco.

I didn’t have much time in that city, but it was very important for me to see this Wolford boutique, partially because I am a blogger, but partially because this is my most exciting destination for shopping.

I walked in with my guy and at first I thought that they had another customer there already.  But when I saw that person moving mannequins, I realized that she is actually one of the staff.

Well, my confusion came from her outfit – she was wearing jeans and some kind of casual flat white shoes.  After she finished, she hopped behind the counter, thus hiding her bottom half and looking more like an employee.

The young lady who greeted me was wearing black textured fishnet pantyhose and a knee length skirt.  She was polite, but somehow I didn’t feel any enthusiasm.  Even though she answered my questions well, I could sense her lack of passion about the product.  The product knowledge was there, yet somehow this experience didn’t feel personal at all.  It felt as if this interaction was robotic and I couldn’t figure out how come it begun to bother me so much.

What could it be?  I didn’t know if my expectations are too high after being welcomed so nicely in their Toronto location by a manager who sincerely loved the product even before she got hired.  Could it be that these women are just there to work their shift, without actually having any interest in this kind of stuff outside of their work hours?

I don’t want to paint too bad of a picture here, the service wasn’t bad at all, just indifferent.  I dream about visiting all the Wolford boutiques around the world, but somehow I am not excited about returning to this one.

Olivia De Berardinis – the art of pinup

May 17, 2012 under Art

As soon as I saw Olivia’s work full of eroticism and sexy lingerie, I knew that I had to mention it on my blog .  I was filled with excitement and I asked her for permission to write about her.  To my surprise, she agreed.

Olivia De Berardinis, born in November of 1948, is an artist from United States who paints pinup girls.  Surprisingly, she contributes monthly to Playboy magazine, presenting her art with Hugh Hefner’s captions.  What a pleasure to know that Hugh Hefner appreciates this kind of work and it turns out that he was inspired by pinup to begin with.

It is a challenge to be a female artist who paints images that are considered to be “male oriented”.  Not everyone gets it and Olivia may be faced with some unhappy feminists.  They just see her as some type of an anomaly.  It all will change, some day, when people become more open-minded.

I invite you to pay a visit to Olivia’s website.  She has a lot of amazing paintings of women, especially women in sexy lingerie like stockings!

What do our readers have to say about this artist?  Here are some wonderful letters I got.

David from Canada

“I think that it’s refreshing to see depictions of women who are unabashedly revealing, and reveling in, their erotic power. These days that just doesn’t happen. The “ideal” modern woman is either the stern fashion model or the strong athlete – pure femininity has become an anachronism. The other thing that the artwork connotes, although implicitly, is the innocent male gaze. The idea that a man can appreciate feminine beauty with out being lascivious, and that women would enjoy that attention, even actively seek it. These days, the “male gaze” is seen as something impertinent, rude and unwanted. That’s what the art evokes for me, nostalgia for a time when sexual chemistry wasn’t so actively squelched. Besides nostalgia, I would also say that the pure sexual and sensual energy of the images is arresting. The lingerie, especially the stockings, creates a dual response: the feminine part of my psyche wonders what it would feel like to wear the clothes, to feel their sensations and to move my body in an alluring way, while the male part wonders what it would be like to touch and embrace the women. One thing is certain, you can’t view the art without feeling a strong and deep reaction.”

David from United States

“I enjoyed studying all the images of Olivia’s that I could find. In her work I see consistent use of fetish and fantasy to portray women as both beautiful and powerful. For me, there is nothing more attractive and than a woman who uses the disarming strength of a man’s fetish to get her way….   a sensual, steamy tango between the hunter and the game …I am most drawn to the many pieces that show women in powerful stances – hands on hips, hips thrown forward, chest out and proud.   Olivia found a husband who shares her passion for fetish art, and she still creates images for Playboy Magazine, with Hughes Hefner composing the captions. “
