Lingerie of the Week

And this weeks winner is....

Diamond Van Doren by Kiss Me Deadly

The Van Doren bra prompted such positive feedback about its comfort that the team at Kiss Me deadly thought they'd add a twist of elegance. A diamond mesh fabric and an ivory contrast trim bring out its superb shape, and they've added a narrow suspender belt that’s boned with a non-stretch centre panel, which is perfect for a little bit of shaping that’s really easy to wear. This set is quite contemporary looking, but they've kept the full brief, complete with its diamond pattern rear.

This set comes in S, M, L and XL, for the six strap suspender belt, six strap cincher, brief and thong 32-36 B-DD and 38C-DD for the bra and will be released in early August.

The Melbourne Princess

Ok so its not lingerie based but todays entry is about beauty. Recently in the frosty streets of Melbourne Ms Tiki Doll decided it was time to get some Mendhi done. As a fan of this for many years it was an easy decision. For those of you who are unsure what I'm talking about Mendhi (also Mehandi, Mehendi, etc.) is the application of Henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in South Asia, Southwest Asia, North Africa and the Horn of Africa, as well as by expatriate communities from these areas. Mehendi decorations became fashionable in the West in the late 1990s, where they are sometimes called henna tattoos. Henna is typically applied during special occasions like weddings and festivals. It is usually drawn on the palms and feet, where the color will be darkest because the skin contains higher levels of keratin which binds temporarily to lawsone, the colorant of henna. Henna was originally used as a form of decoration mainly for brides.

So in the festive spirit I offered up my hand to be done and here are the results. I must say I'm rather pleased and think I will be investing in some more in many different places. Plus I am investigating getting some paste myself to start practising designs

Finished Design the next day after paste removed

Lingerie of the Week

In this frosty winter weather its hard not to want to stay in your PJ's all day drinking hot chocolate and eating cupcakes. So i thought I'd try and find something to lift the spirits. And the winner is....

This short kimono is a superb mix of contemporary chic with traditional styling, a versatile dream in soft pure silk. A wrap top or robe, it has the archetypal swinging sleeve that drapes sensually and move elegantly with you. For a relaxed or bed time look, wear it with its matching sash - or a belt for daytime wear. Teamed with underbust corset with a heavy one inch wide and ten inches long busk. It is cut to give serious curves, over narrow skirts and trousers for a spectacular silhouette. Or the brave women among you can show off your legs!

I adore this combo from fairy goth mother as it makes me dream of a far away land and another time. Would love to see this outfit on some people doing LARP.
