There He Is...




Those of you who miss the postings of the illustrious Nick Danger from Fool for Your Stockings may keep up with his doings at his photoblog, entitled appropriately enough, Fool for Your Stockings. Be forewarned that Mr. Danger is enjoying being off his leash, as the photos above probably hint, and it's not quite as SFW as the original Fool.

Where to Buy a Garter Belt


One of my lovely readers asked on my last post if I knew where to buy the garter belt /waspie that Fernanda Tavares is wearing in the photo. I know that it's made by the French company Lejaby and that it's from their Elixir line, but unfortunately, it comes from the Fall/Winter 2007 line. Here's a photo of it in red and black (and it did also come in white). I'm coming up short in my efforts to find anyone still selling it online, but know I have some super-sleuths who read this blog who may be able to out-Sherlock me. If any of you know of somewhere where this belt can still be purchased, I'd be grateful to hear about it in the comments so we can pass the information along.



In the meantime, Faire Frou Frou has some beautiful out-of-the-ordinary garter belts, including the two above that are particularly beautiful. The Elle MacPherson one with polka dots on the right is similar to the Lejaby and is incredibly affordable at $55.



Another great place for you to buy beautiful garter belts or waspies (or any lingerie, actually) is Cazar, who carry many, many luxury lingerie brands and ship across Europe and the U.S. It's worth perusing the Cazar website just to see the high-resolution photos of hot chicks in their undies. Of course, there are many other retailers who carry gorgeous stuff, but those are two particular favorites of mine for super-special items.



Edited to Add: I really was remiss in not mentioning the fabulous Joanna's Wardrobe earlier as a place to get unique ways to hold up your stockings, especially is she is one of the exclusive retailers where you can buy Stockings and Romance lingerie, which I think is very cool stuff. I believe a lot of it is still sewn by hand.



Now that I'm mentioning things I should have earlier, in latex, no one makes more beautiful lingerie than Atsuko Kudo Couture and latex stockings look most awesome with a latex belt or underthingy attached.

Sigh, now I have a terrible urge to go shopping. How about you? Where do you like to shop for your really special lingerie, the things you keep wrapped in tissue until it's time to wear them? I look forward to hearing because I always learn new things from all of you.

Fernanda Tavares in Stockings


Also from Things that Excite Me..

Michelle Trachtenberg in Black Tights




One day I will grow up and marry opaque hosiery, I love it that much. I also can't help but notice that she's wearing my highly-adored shorts with tights. Hollywood approves!

This one came from Things that Excite Me..

Hello Kitty




I need everything she's wearing, but I would eat the lollipop.

Shorts with Tights: Fall Trend





Hooray! I just picked up the October issue of Vogue and found them touting shorts with tights as a great look for Fall. They touched on something I mentioned last spring when I was all hopped up on the idea, saying that for many women shorts just feel more discreet than a miniskirt (they managed to say it without using the phrase, "lady parts," though).

Vogue recommends wearing lots of layers like thick sweaters and plaid flannel (which I swear I thought would never come back in style) and choosing wool shorts, like some of those above from Nanette Lepore. I have to say that anything that keeps the hosiery on view for the entire year is good with me.

Friday

Stockings and Naughty Schoolgirls (sort of...)


It appears that these young ladies did not study and were left back at Catholic school for a few years. Like five to ten.

Young James Spader





WARNING: NSFW VIDEO LINKS BELOW
This is the post where I admit that I have never sat down to watch Secretary. Considering my interests, this is somewhat bizarre. It's not because I have to be That One Person Who Hasn't Seen That One Movie, it's because of spontaneous human combustion and my James Spader issues. I'm not certain it would actually be a medically sound decision for me to watch a scene like this spanking scene or this one  (BOTH NSFW) given that I've had James Spader "issues" since I was about 15. I actually have yet to make it through the first video and it's under six minutes long. James Spader is just that sexy, people.

A pair of comments below the first video really intrigued me:

(Sadism has many aspects) thats true...but this is not love ...... not a true love ...... this is an erotic relationship
Dimbnd (3 days ago)
What is true love, and why can't it be erotic?

I agree. Why on earth couldn't true love be based on shared erotic interests? Wouldn't the most complete romantic/emotional connection contain a strong sexual connection as well? Not necessarily a kink or fetish, but at least an earnest desire to connect physically?

Revenge: Ellen Von Unwerth




I am so in love with Ellen Von Unwerth it's insane. I want her to come over to my house with models so we can dress them up and then make them play in the garden while we take photos of them. I definitely will one day buy a copy of her limited edition book, Revenge,which is a gorgeous photodocumentation (with a little text) of three young girls' S & M-tinged adventures under the hands of "The Baroness" at a country manor. I will do it as soon as I find that spare $300 I left laying around somewhere the other day. Until then I will content myself at the library and with the photos that are online (many of which are naughty enough I can't post them here, though they make me tingly. I've posted a couple at Tumbling Vixen and there are a couple under that first link, too). She is truly a magical photographer.

Saturday

Fisnets, Corset and and Panties...Oh My!



More of the desktop clean up parade, though found this one on Beauty Takes Many Forms, today. The others are from my stash. See more photos...

Agent Provocateur Commercial



Okay, yeah, this is the best commercial ever made, and obviously proves the point that people in other countries don't have the same stick up their bums that many Americans seem to when it comes to sexual material in the mainstream media. This aired on broadcast television, including that red-hot thumb suck.

Thanks to my friend, Fluffy, for turning us on to this one. More videos...

Saturday Cleaning Day


My computer has suddenly started running at the speed of molasses poured from a Louboutin boot, so I've had to clean up the hundreds of photos littering my desktop and have unearthed piles of gems I've yet to post here on SV. Over the weekend, I will try to get some of these beauties posted.  See more photos...

White Garter Belt

vintage black stockings

My friend who sent me this said, "It’s all about the realistic background, and the way her clothing is in disarray. One seriously hot photo!"

Red Stilettos with Jeans

I think most readers of this blog wouldn't mind jeans as much if women wore them as stylishly as this most of the time. Also, good lord do I ever need these shoes.

Black Stockings are Elegant


Single Ladies (Big Girl Mix)


Stick around for the highly awesome splits at the end. This is truly one of my favorite posts ever on Stocking Vixen. Yes, I'm not sure anyone is wearing hosiery, but I have posted about Beyonce's Single Ladies before and there are some great legs on display in this video, so I'm posting this, damnit! More videos...

By Request: South Asian Women in Stockings (and I Couldn't Resist the Panties)


I've been taking requests over at Facebook and one of my FB (and Tumblr and Twitter) buddies, Tiara, who writes the burlesque/arts/performance site, The Merch Girl, asked me to post photos of South Asian women in stockings. "No prob," I thought and off I went to find some great photos. Many hours later, I learned that it was going to be a much tougher task than I'd thought to find really pretty photos that weren't pornographic. I struck out completely finding good, sexy photos of Malaysian women, Sri Lankan women or Pakistani women that weren't porn, which I found frustrating. I understand that there are cultural reasons that make it unlikely for a women in those countries to pose for sexy pics, but it still surprised me to have such a tough time, especially since my searching turned up a reasonable quantity of explicit photos by women from those countries.

However, I love celebrating the positive and I am very pleased to share the photos I did find. I think they're beautiful, but do wish so much I had found more. If anyone reading this knows of great photos or has any in his/her personal stash, please do let me know, because I'd like to share more.

Scarelett Johansson Photos: Pussycat Doll for a Night

fencenet stockings




Nick Danger and Dahlia Delis have both let me know that this photo I posted a few days ago of Scarlett Johansson in fishnets and leather is from her guest turn as a Pussycat Doll, and that other celebs have taken a spin with the Dolls. I had to hunt down more pics since I loved the first one so much and found a YouTube video where an intrepid fan has pieced together a bunch of images from the show.

If you like the PD's, check out the photos a friend shot for me at the Britney Spears show in Dallas when the Pussycat Dolls opened her show. I think they're among the most spectacular shots on the whole site.

Vintage Silk Stockings

Found on sweetsassafras.com

You can pick up the original pair here at Etsy for $95 or the Mrs Godivas at StockingsHQ by BeBaroque (I have a pair of the MG's myself and can attest to how beautiful they are).

Tell Me a Story


My friend Kevin sent me this photo and he and I both agree that it could illustrate lots of different stories. What do you think is going on in this picture? Tell me a story in the comments section below.

Camera Club Girls



Oh I am so jealous of my friend Jim Linderman who runs the wonderful blog, Gals, Gams and Garters and who has happened into a stash of hand-painted photos by Rudolph Rossi, a member of the NYC Concorde Camera Club. In the 50's, those interested in shooting erotic photos of women (including Bettie Page, pictured above) could become members, pay $10 and gain access to models who would pose nude or bestockinged for them and were more daring because the photos were not for publication.

Mr. Rossi took his photos and then hand-tinted them to make them appear as though they were color shots. They are pretty damn cool looking if you ask me.

Jim has 100 or so of these photos and will be releasing them at his new blog, Camera Club Girls, over the ensuing months. I will be paying rapt attention. Please be advised the blog is NSFW in a 50's kind of way.

Corset Week Continues


If you haven't hopped over to my friend Treacle's blog, Stockings Addict to check out the goings-on during Corset Week, I highly recommend a vist so you can learn more about corsets, and see beautiful photos of some amazing work. She even took shots while she was out and about at Dragon Con last week of women in some very varied and cool ensembles.

My favorite post so far, has been this one about Mr. Pearl, the eccentric and gifted designer who wears his own creations and has trained his waist to a tiny 18 inches!

Cake, Anyone?
