So Cute, Some Bunny's Gonna Faint!

I'm the some bunny ready to faint over these high heel bunny slippers, so I'll let Frou Frou Fashionista tell you all about them:

Available in pink, black and powder blue, the slippers are made from a combination of satin and faux fur with a 3 1/2 inch heel. They are designed for both indoor &; outdoor use, so there's no point in restricting these cuties to just the boudoir. You can learn more about Streetzie's High Heel Bunny Slippers here.

Do You Remember...

When thigh-high boots were for hookers, strippers & other provocative women? I do. But now, eh, not-so-much. I've long worn black thigh-high leather boots like intimate secrets, hiding beneath long skirts... I've enjoyed it immensely. And I'm not sure I will ever want to proudly display them. Shy girl or no, I like having a few secrets -- that I may choose to share *wink* (Jimmy Choo black leather thigh-high boots; sale found via Shop It To Me.)

Soaking Up The Sunshine

I'm working overtime this weekend; one of the perks of being a poor college student with lusty appetites for shoes, books, and lingerie. *wink* So while the rest of you in the US enjoy your day off, I'm just hoping for a long enough break at the bookstore today to do this.

Fashion Faux Pas = Fab Fetish Look

Wearing such light colored shoes with black stockings is a serious fashion faux pas; but the high contrast of the white or light straps criss-crossing over the dark nylon is incredibly sexy. A look best saved for nights in, where catty jealous girls won't label you a "fashion don't."

I Love It!

Dutch sculptor Mario Philippona's "Sexy Furniture" series is created via life-sized drawings and assembled from pre-cut layers of wood, so that they're anatomically correct. According to his website statement, "This way he can reproduce the most perfect female forms. This perfectionism he recognizes in the way women use fashion, high heels, fitness and plastic surgery to portray themselves. The female images in for example Playboy are precisely composed and manipulated in PhotoShop."

The Sexy (Shy) Librarian Heads Back To School

Last week I started classes again. I can only afford to go part-time, but hey, I'm gonna get there, right? One thing this means is wearing less sexy shoes, more practical shoes. I can get away with wearing the spikiest of heals where I work, but as a student, it tends to give folks the wrong impression -- as if "sexy woman" and "serious dedicated student" were mutually exclusive concepts. Whatever! While I'd like to prove that stupid theory wrong, my educational plan is already on the slow-track, and I literally cannot afford to fight that fight. Meanwhile, here's proof that practical shoes can still be sexy -- just as reading always is *wink*

How You Sit In Those Stockings & Shoes Says Something About You

So says these pages from Beauty Parade, January 1950. Sure, it's vintage; but so is my fashion sense -- and so are many of my stockings! Sure, it's campy stuff from an old men's mag; but then men haven't really changed that much, have they? (Totally fitting for our Fashion Fetish Fortune Telling Event.)

I Love These!

These "Super Suspenders" from Henry Holland By Pretty Polly are an amazing feet feat of trompe l'oeil!


The faux garters or mock suspenders are created using a thicker more opaque band of tights over a fine sheer upper panel at the top of the thigh, fooling the eye into seeing an actual garter!

Now I know die-hards like Slip of a Girl probably won't give up their real stockings, garter belts, garters dangling from their girdles, etc.; but for girls like me who have jobs which require a bit more stable and presentable hose for wearing on the library floor, these are awesome.

I'm in love *swoon* Can you hear my heart go pitter-pat? I'm buying buckets of these for fall. Practical and sexy!
