Hosiery used to be something many women hated having to wear to the office, when nude pantyhose were the primary option. But now tights in every color, pattern, and texture imaginable are both trendy and readily available, and wearing them no longer seems like a chore. (Unless, of course, it’s February and you are just dying for the bare-legged warmth of spring.) The Wall Street Journal put together this handy little matrix of different types of hosiery, breaking down which are sexy or sensible, and party- or office-appropriate. [WSJ] Keep reading »

Trim & Proper panties are basic nude cotton panties with little, suggestive pubic hair designs on the front. Also, according to the About Us page, these panties “cover mishaps, misshapes and outright neglect,” which I guess is why they’re nude-colored? So that from far away you look naked and well-groomed? But to whom? Peeping Toms? I am confused. But at least these are cheaper than the panties that soak up your period leakage. [$16, Trim & Proper] Keep reading »

This spring 2011 collection features bold and intense colors that you wouldn’t normally wear on both your face and hands. Keep reading »
