There are robes that we mere mortals wear, and then there are robes that the likes of Dita von Teese, Jean Harlow and Loretta Young wear (or wore).  As you will see, the two are worlds apart!  Of course the focus of today’s post are the glamorous satin and feather-trimmed robes of yesteryear along with some striking vintage-inspired styles that are available today.  It’s ironic … Read More

Oysho on LingerieBriefs

For those of us in the lingerie industry (me being a former lingerie boutique owner), it is our job to represent a multitude of brands.  There are the labels we sell, the labels we blog about, and the labels that sponsor us.  Most important, however, are the brands we actually wear in our daily life.  We all have a particular bra and panty style that we grab from the drawer more frequently … Read More
