The Yule Log was on TV, had my cinnamon coffee, woke up in a good mood, was feeling thankful and reflective, and right on schedule…. it was Christmas Day. Christmas Eve I was invited to a small dinner party where we dined on sublime brisket and exchanged Secret Santa gifts under 10$. I got a Food Face dinner plate that was meant for me. The apartment was what I call a “Woody Allen”, you know one of those NYC pads with a real dining room, a massive table with leaves that seats 12, a kitchen where guests can mill about and there is room for multiple conversations. I was the only non-Jewish person in attendance which brings me to thankfulness, I am so happy I get to live and work in a town where diversity is a given. Not going to … Read more

I am not in Mexico at the moment; I came north for the holidays and to prepare for the fall 2018 market. It’s a bit counter intuitive, braving the northeastern weather patterns while most people are escaping south for a sun soaked reprieve. It is, in fact, the beginning of the Swimwear season. And even though I write this wrapped in fleece, there is no doubt that my interest in this enormous industry has been peaked by the fact that I reside seaside for a big part of the year. Beachwear is as prevalent on the Mexican beaches as black everything controls New York fashion. Living in Cabo San Lucas, one might catch sight of the romper pictured above while cruising through the local flea markets, sipping margaritas on the marina or even dining on some tacos at one of the many … Read more

Certainly, if you read the Lingerie Brief’s byline, you are aware that our mission has always been to advocate for the poetry of beautifully wrought intimate apparel.

A little sparkle goes a long way, at least in the case of lingerie designer Taryn Winters, whose sequin bra design (see image at bottom of this post) caught my attention and stopped me in my tracks while scrolling through Instagram. I love when discoveries like this happen! Granted, just because Taryn Winters is new to me, does not mean she’s a new discovery to Ellen Lewis, who had the pleasure of seeing the brand in person at this past Summer’s Lingerie Selection. Fairly new to the lingerie scene, Taryn Winters is a New York designer whose work is heavily influenced by the world of ballet costumes and her background as a dancer. A graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology Winters has developed a unique style that is distinguished by her beadwork and many of her bespoke pieces (follow her … Read more

I hadn’t contemplated becoming a pajama person until this past summer, when I found myself chasing down a neighbor’s gigantic bulldog (complete with post-vet neck cone) in my front garden while wearing nothing more than a slightly sheer vintage slip. Since I work from home, I often find myself not getting dressed until it’s required to leave my house. However, now that I live in a busy neighborhood, a lot more people see my clothes during the day than they used to. Packages get delivered, friends stop by unexpectedly for coffee or snacks and you occasionally find yourself chasing down a sweet but seriously lost dog. I didn’t think I was going to start getting dressed while I worked, but it did seem like time to upgrade to some socially appropriate loungewear options.
There aren’t many brands that I have a purely … Read more
