Valentine’s Day Cake and Fancy Tights from Julia

February 14, 2014 under News

Valentine's Cake I Love You home madeJulia, a Ukrainian lady who helps out with this blog, is getting ready for her Valentine’s Day way in advance.

She sent us a photo of the cake she made to surprise her husband. Can you imagine, this is a home made cake and it looks better than what can find in stores? I am sure that both of them will have a delicious time on Valentine’s.

Even though I am still waiting back from her to tell me what she s planning to wear on Valentine’s, I bet you that her outfit will include either some fancy tights or stockings.

She recently sent me a picture of her legs in the snow wearing Rosalia tights by Fiore and tall sexy boots.  Despite the harsh weather she just can’t stop wearing fashionable outfits.

Almost dropped my garter belt on Valentine’s

February 16, 2012 under Love

I used to have garter belts of different sizes for different fits – waist, hip, and low rise. Now I am only keeping the smallest one.

Sexy Ideas for Valentine’s Day?  Garter belt seemed just right!

I decided to dress up and wear non-stay up (regular old fashioned style) stockings and a garter belt under my knee high skirt on my Valentine’s outing to dinner.

Everything looked excellent when I put it on and my garter belt rested gracefully just above my hips like a pair of low rise pants.

As I was walking to and from the restaurant, I ran into complications.  Stockings began to pull on the garter belt and due to stretchy fabric my belt began to slide down past my hips.

I kept on trying to pull it up, but I was afraid that it may just fall down together with the stockings.  This style would work great in the bedroom for a decorative purpose, but not when you are actually planning to wear it out and do some walking. Later I learned that proper garter belts have at least 6 straps, like those from Gigi’s Intimates.

My stockings were tugging on the garter belt and almost pulled it past my hips as I was walking.

At that point I realized why the other garter belt that I have (comes in a matching set with stockings) is supposed to sit on the waist.

I didn’t like that idea at first since I prefer more of a low rise fit, but now I understand that at least this way it stays where it’s supposed to and won’t slide off my hips.

Later I also realized that some suspender belts tend to unclip, so it’s also important to wear it for half an hour or so at home before going out to see whether suspender straps actually hold on to your stockings.  Once I wore a garter belt and it unclipped 9 times throughout the day.  I counted!

*Friends, please check the hosiery shop section, that’s the only source of funding for the blog.  Please have a look at all the lovely stockings! There are also a few good garter belts there that were not available at the time that I wrote this post. They are new additions – Vision by Fiore and Vesuvio by Fiore.*
