I hope to come back in my next life as a movie critic AND a costume designer.  I see lots of films; mainstream films, art house films and I attend film festivals.  I love the escape and I love the visual stimulation that comes with a great film. I often imagine while watching a movie how I would dress a particular character better than the actual designer on the set.  So when I set out to write this blog I wanted to bond intimate apparel and film.  What better way than bondage and S&M?   Bordelle was the obvious choice.

Bordelle’s bondage inspired underpinnings defy conventional construction and they defy conventional attitudes on bondage.  The beauty of what they create takes it well beyond the original intent and into the mainstream and yet remains true to the brand and true to the customers who embrace bondage. The term … ...Read more


Warrior Women

I remember the first time I entered Paragon Sporting Goods, the iconic purveyor all things athletic and adventurous.  I came to NYC very young, to go to Parsons School of Design. NYC was raw and creative, it was filthy, even a bit dangerous and I lived on Union Square a block from Paragon.  It was heaven and I want to go back in time, I miss it terribly.   We were “warriors”, my roommates and I and I am happy to say we all survived the mean streets, the early morning club hopping, the all night binges on whatever and the dating scene. So a few weeks ago when I entered the store for the first time in ages, a million memories flooded my senses.  Memories of looking for snow pants in preparation for my first and only ski trip.  Memories of buying sneakers because Paragon was one … ...Read more

The queen of the bodysuit back in 92’ B.S. (before Spanx) was Donna Karan.  Oh how I wish she was around to shake things up now like she did then.  I had the great fortune to work on DK Intimates bodysuits and shapewear, to see her squeeze into them, to watch her drape them on the models, and to debate with her the merits of crotch snaps vs. no snaps for bathroom ease (a battle I lost btw).

It was a special time, when a few key brands were giving birth to the foundations of the bodysuit we know today. And while Donna’s influence still lingers, there are some noteworthy brands shaking things up and moving the bodysuit forward.

Salon de la Lingerie took place this past January in Paris at Porte de Versailles, and I was there.

In between buttery, wine soaked, sole and pate’ meals … ...Read more

“This time I’m serious, this time I’m determined”.  “I will be better than last year”.  Sound familiar? It’s that obnoxious teeny little gym rat sitting on your shoulder, whispering in your ear and haunting you online. And now it’s me!  Before you click, bear with me.

I belong to a great gym, but I simply don’t go enough.  On any given day I am greeted by David Duchovny sipping a smoothie, or Tea’ Leoni holding the door open for me (trust me that will make you want to spend a few extra days on a treadmill). Once I was blessed enough to stand behind Timothy Daly in the coat line (hubba hubba)!! And before he left us and moved downtown Alec Baldwin was our official gym “mascot”.   My gym is a spotless, well run, celebrity packed gym and yet sometimes I get bored (not to be confused … ...Read more
