The CW11 morning news in New York is great. It keeps me informed every morning! Last week, host Tiffany McElroy chatted with Mariella Rodriguez of Frederick’s of Hollywood. Mariella brought along some models to showcase the costumes and lingerie pieces Frederick’s has to offer this season. From a racy ringmaster to a Shangai girl, there are plenty of sexy and sassy options. Check out the video footage and get to Frederick’s! Halloween is almost here…
Iâ€™ve recently been introduced to a great new lingerie site: YumDrop.com. The motto of YumDrop is “naughty when you wanna be” and the site lives up to the slogan!
The wide variety of styles is refreshing; while some could be candidates for our “Trashy, Slutty…. Yet interesting!” forum topic, there are just as many pieces that are classy and pretty – so you can be naughty when you wanna be and nice when you wanna be! You will have no trouble finding charmuese and lace bridal babydolls, shirred bustiers, lace-up open-cup chemises, camigarters with cherry prints, leopard print babydolls, leather bustiers, and fishnets that make it look like you have ankle tattoos â€“ all on one site! You can also find swimsuits and shoes on YumDrop â€“ and I was delighted to find that the shoe section has the same wide variety as the main focus of the site (lingerie!). There are naughty nurse platform boots and marabou sandals, but there are also sexy Mary Jane pumps and rhinestone sandals perfect for a night out. YumDropâ€™s real strength is offering such a wide variety of pretty, sexy things, with sometimes daring designs, at very palatable prices.
While the pieces available on YumDrop.com are affordable, they still rival far more expensive brands as far as design and style goes â€“ and the site offers these unique items in a way that is completely comprehensible, easy to navigate, and refreshingly thorough. There are multiple views available for most products, so you can see how a product looks from different angles or in different colors (on the product page, just hold your mouse over the view you want to see), as well as prominently displayed sizing charts to help you navigate incongruent sizing between brands and styles. This is especially helpful because many of the pieces available are decidedly for wearing at home, and don’t use standard sizing simply because support isn’t much of an issue with something you won’t wear every day. But YumDrop translates the manufacturersâ€™ â€œsmall/medium/largeâ€ categories into band and cup sizes so you can be confident in ordering the correct size.
I recently received my package from YumDrop, and was even more pleased than I thought I would be. I ordered the Star Studded Panty, a pair of boyshorts with lace-up sides and â€œSexyâ€ silk-screened on the back. I couldn’t be happier with these â€“ I’m a sucker for corset-style lacing, and my new panties are every bit as comfortable as my everyday boyshorts. They are, however, far more “rock-n-roll” than my everyday boyshorts!
I also got the Ruffled Rhumba Hot Pants. These are cute, but Iâ€™m torn about them. They aren’t really my style or much like anything else I own, but I’m trying to broaden my tastes and they are very flirty for lounging around at home. They seem a great accessory to a simple cami or short chemise.
My favorite, however, is the Pink Mesh and Lace Cami set. I am a larger cup size, so usually I shy away from anything with underbust seams because they never hit me correctly. I had to take a shot with this set, however, because it looked so good â€“ and Iâ€™m glad I did! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the straps are adjustable, so even ladies with larger cups can adjust the top to fit them well. And I absolutely love the design.
When you visit YumDrop, be sure to check out their costumes. Halloween will be here before you know it!
A whole new world opens in front of my eyes: bee Halloween costumes. I mean — first of all, we don’t do the whole dressing up and acting slutty for Halloween here in Europe, second: I knew about the French maid costumes, and the schoolgirl outfits, but these are way more fun! I found a great selection at LaLaLingerie.com — at prices you can afford to try one out, for Halloween, or for more private bedroom times (I can imagine many fun games with these, but this may not be the place to share those hehe).
The ladybug costumes are a little less to my liking, but still very sexy: 😀
All from LaLaLingerie — I’m considering getting one for at home. 😉
The South beach night life is a big inspiration for Espiral. They try to offer sexy and suggestive clothing offering a look that merges with a sexy attitude to produce dramatic appealing styles. Their Club Wear collection offers a mix of a sexy day and evening party line — all very very naughty. Here’s what they say:
“ESPIRAL’S designs maintain a Latin flair that keeps our collection very sexy and risqué. Our entire collection includes a touch of exotic glamour and extravagance that will always sell by making a powerful sexy and provocative statement. […] A key for our new collection is to present a variety of touchable fabrics that will invite another’s touch while making you feel spoiled, pampered and sexy. Transparencies, lace, jewelry and detailed embellishments are crossing the boundaries of sexy!”
The photo’s will pretty much give you the general idea — I like the maid’s costume. Anyone up for play? 😉
