Boutique of the Month: March ~ Original Sin

This is not just an oridinary lingerie store!

Located in the heart of downtown Danville, Original Sin lingerie boutique has a vintage and pin up feel to it. Upon first walking in, I noticed this amazing piece of, dare I say, art work: a 12 foot apple tree, evoking the Garden of Eden. The dressing rooms feature thousands of miniature pin ups lining the dressing rooms, inspiring you to feel like a silver screen siren or pin up yourself.

It's this detail and love of lingerie that Sarah Woodruff, owner, puts into all areas of the store. A friendly and welcoming place, Original Sin features:

  • Betsey Johnson
  • Undrest
  • Tra La La
  • Hanky Panky
  • Cosabella
  • and the ultra sexy Vagin Pourvoir

You'll also come across hard-to-find accessories (vintage designer scarves), bold jewelry, graphic teess and tank tops, comfortable lounguewear and flirty party dresses.

One of the many highlights at Original Sin is the ingenious Pin Up Parties. What is a "Pin Up Party?" It's "Pin Up style photo shoots for groups of gal pals." For more information and images, click on Original Sin Pin Up Parties.

If you have a chance, stop by Original Sin Undies, you'll be sure to fall in love with a bra, camisole, or vintage scarf. Best of all, just visiting the store will make you feel like your "Celebrating Your Inner Eve!"

The Rise of Man: Adam's Take on Lingerie

Eve is often blamed for the fall of Adam, mankind if you will. Why does she always take the blame for all of the world’s temptation? One possible reason for this: Lingerie. Curse or Blessing?

Men spend so much time attempting to get these sexy pieces of clothing off of our Eve’s that we hardly notice the intricate details, often spoken of with such passionate detail on Eve’s Apples Lingerie Blog. So you can guess my astonishment when a dear friend of mine mentioned the other day that his wife had come home with sexy new lingerie recommended to her by Eve’s Apples. Instead of begging his wife to remove the intimate apparel he instead asked her to keep it on!

Is this going to be a new trend? Well, if company’s such as
La Perla with their Black Label Collection (pictured above and debuting in Spring/Summer 2009) or nearly any item in the Agent Provocateur line continue to be part of our ladies intimate collections, men everywhere will be faced with a tough dilemma. It's a dilema I welcome any day!

I am Adam, I have an apple.

Tantalizing Trivia ~ onGossamer

QUESTION: onGossamer, the exquisite lingerie line, was named after a famous quote by:

A. Henry David Thoreau

B. William Shakespeare

C. Emily Dickinson

D. William Butler Yeats

During Eve's recent visit to Fashion Week / Las Vegas, we spoke with onGossamer and discovered that the owner was head over heals for Shakespeare at the time that he and his wife were naming their lingerie company. As a result, "onGossamer" took its inspiration from Shakespeare's quote, "Faeries flitting on gossamer wings are a common sight. Their wings of rainbow colors unfold quietly, taking flight."

ANSWER: If you answered "B" above then you are correct.

To see some of the lingerie inspired by Shakespeare's fairy wings, take a look at this post for a few images from the collection.

Calypso Garden Bra ($46) and Bikini ($24) look like your lost in a fanciful dream (image above). To purchase, click on onGossamer Calypso lingerie at Nordstrom.

For some luxurious camisoles, onGossamer's Sobe Safari Collection has the Beaded Camisole (image top center of post) in a Cheebra print mesh with built-in shelf bra. A sequined tiger on front completes the look and can be purchased at Gigi's Closet for $58 (on sale from $78).

Also from the same collection, the Mesh Camisole (image above center) is "jazzed up with a metallic stud tiger on a white background" is $50 (on sale from $68). To purchase, click on Gigi's Closet / onGossamer.

Inspired by this line, "OnGossamer has made a contribution to the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, to help the herd and insure adequate water supply to the wild animals."

Lingerie Body: Victoria Beckham

The latest Armani ad update with the Beckhams features Victoria (image below). The Daily Mail states that "David, 33, first signed a £20 million deal to become the new global ambassador of the fashion house in 2007.

His 34-year-old wife followed suit with her own £12 million three-year deal late last year, with Italian designer Giorgio Armani praising her as an 'intriguing woman'.

In the past, Mrs Beckham has claimed she 'looks really awful naked', complaining of 'saggy skin' on her stomach following three pregnancies."

Isn't it refreshing to see that Victoria is just like an every day woman who wrestles with her body image? Did you notice how stunning she looks in these images?!

I admire how honest and humble Victoria is when talking about her feelings toward her body. She's a great example of how we, as women, can be our biggest critics. People may see beauty, and, she may see the flaws. We do that to ourselves all the time.

The Chemise: Sexy & Comfortable for every woman every night

Chemises started out as protective undergarments in the Middle Ages, essentially. They were worn under dresses as long smocks, protecting the body from oils and sweat. Men and women alike wore chemises, typically as a one-piece. Chemises originated around the time of the Roman Empire and carried over into the Middle Ages as a popular choice for undergarments. Currently, people continue to wear a version the chemise, mostly as the modern T-shirt.

Today's chemises are made from a variety of materials for women. They come in all kinds of lengths. Some have fitted tops with long flowing skirts and others are short and flirty with matching panties. These loose fitting garments have lost their full sleeves in favor of thin straps and delicate styling puts the chemise at the top of the list for naughty lingerie.
Among the different choices for materials are:
* Mesh: Leave something to the imagination with a sheer mesh material. Still feel like you're covered, but naughty enough for a peek here and there.

Scarlett 79 Chemise Set

* Silk: The ultimate in pampering, silk feels so good next to your skin and men can't resist it either.

* Satin: The look and feel of silk, but much cheaper and easier to care for.

657 Chemise

* Chiffon: Light, airy, and oh-so-glamorous. Bring out the diva in yourself with sexy lingerie of chiffon.

* Lace: For the ultimate in elegance and femininity, lace is a timeless classic.

Margherita K-12 Chemise Set

Chemises are ideal for those women looking to explore the world of women's undergarments with a safety net. A chemise can be anything and everything in the world of seduction, from wild, tormenting flare to delicate, sensual discretion. Chemises can work to provide sexy cool to any body type and are available in virtually any price range, making them the model seduction device for today's modern woman. If you want to add to your naughty lingerie without going broke, chemises are a quick and easy way to do it.

And the best part? Chemises are comfortable enough to wear on a regular basis. Far too many women have a misconception about sexy lingerie and think that in order to look sexy they have to suffer with tight fitting garments. But chemises aren't just for wearing in the bedroom, like camisoles, there are some chemises designed as dresses. One of the best ways to enjoy sexy lingerie is to wear it simply because it makes you feel good. Everyone wants to feel beautiful, whether or not they have someone to share it with. Go ahead and treat yourself to something naughty - or nice!

The Virtues of Luxurious Lingerie

The 8 Virtues:
  1. Silky intimates on your skin all day
  2. Feeling confident and only you and/or your mate knows why
  3. Beautiful lingerie puts a swing in your step
  4. First thing in the morning, putting on sexy, romantic, glamorous or classic lingerie starts the day off right
  5. Reminds you that it may be a man's world in business, but you have a secret weapon
  6. It's the one piece of clothes that expresses how you truly feel and no one need know but you
  7. It's the perfect detail to peek through your clothing on an evening out
  8. An inexpensive way to revamp your wardrobe without breaking the bank

One of Elle Macpherson's favorite bras, the Dentelle Bra, is featured above. Not only is the Dentelle Bra ($32.49 - $65) and matching Dentelle Bikini ($28) gorgeous in pictures, I'm also completely in love with them in person! They're very flattering on the body and made me feel ultra sexy wearing them. I even wore them during a four hour road trip. Guess what? I didn't mind. Once I put on the luxurious lingerie, my mood transformed from humming and hawing over schlepping the windy road in a cramped car to embracing a glamorous adventure up the coast to a romantic B&B. That's the magic of luxurious lingerie!

Some of my favorite lingerie is made by Elle Macpherson Intimates and the Matahari lingerie set (directly above in fuchsia and below left in ink) are just two more of them. The Impressa set (image below right in ink) is equally stunning. To purchase the Dentelle lingerie set or see further Elle Macpherson Intimates, go to Barenecessities/Elle Macpherson Intimates.

No matter what, dear Lingeristas, I wish all of you at least one luxurious lingerie set so that you will personally know what I mean when I say, "Celebrate Your Inner Eve."

Nordstrom Fits America

Get your girlfriends together and go to Nordstrom! From March 5 - May 2 they're having a National Bra Fitting and if you have four or more in a party, you can have a bra fitting party with your girlfriends at Nordstroms.

Why are they doing this?

Nordstrom is inviting you "to join us as we partner with 20 top lingerie brands to support Susan G. Komen for the cure, a global leader in the fight against breast cancer...

For every bra purchased during the in-store event, $2 will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Research Fund: $1 from Nordstrom and the matching $1 from participating brands, including Badgley Mishcka*, Betsey Johnson Intimates, Calvin Klein Underwear, Chantelle, DKNY, Donna Karan Intimates, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Elomi*, Fantasie, Fayreform, Felina, Freya, Huit*, Le Mystere, Natori, onGossamer*, Panache*, Simone Perele*, SPANX, and Wacoal." (* is available at selected stores.)

Nordstrom Fits America to find a store near you with the dates and times available.

I used to have gaps in my bra cups, thinking that I was a 36A. When I finally got a professional fitting, I discovered that I was instead a 32C. That's a big difference. And I can tell you it makes a bigger difference looking at me just in my bra as well as under clothes. With a 32C on, no more gaps. To see some other positive results from Nordstrom fittings, click on Evie Gets Fit and Friends & Fittings.

I highly recommend anyone who hasn't been fitted, recently lost weight, had a baby or whose body has changed more than five pounds since your last fitting, go to Nordstrom and get a proper bra fit. It makes all the difference in how you look and feel wearing the right bra size.

It's all about feeling your best and Celebrating Your Inner Eve, having a bra fitting party is one fun-filled way to do it!

"The Perfect One" Bra & Spokesmodel

If I have to name one of my favorite people, then it would have to be Heidi Klum. From being a successful model, to host of Project Runway, to loving her husband, Seal, and children above all else, she's a woman who is comfortable in her own skin, Celebrating Her Inner Eve at every turn.

When I heard that Heidi Klum was launching Victoria's Secret's new The Perfect One Bra (image above), I had to find out more about it.

The Perfect One website, Heidi tells us that the bra, "shapes, smooths, and supports" all in one, allowing for a seamless look under your clothes. With three types of foam, the bra "conforms to your body and fills the gaps between you and your body."

The Bra Lab video below, detailing Heidi building The Perfect One Bra, has to be one of the funniest videos I've seen since Man Cold. Click on the Bra Lab video below to see Heidi Klum in pure Heidi Klum form.


Intenssimo collection by Axami

Axami continues to regularly launch new collections and we enjoy showing you the one for spring/summer 2009. Intenssimo consists of eight bra and panty sets, two chemise sets and one corset. Main colors are intensive as spring sunshine – warm orange, coral, violet. There are also a few designs of bridal lingerie – with innovative tulle straps, headbands and cuffs. However, quality of fabrics and laces is still at the same high level. In one word – sexy collection full of subtle aesthetics.

Evie Gets Fitted!

Hello Lingeristas!

As Eve as told us, time and time again, it is so important to go in for a proper fitting. Try a local specialty boutique, or even Nordstrom. Trust me, you might be surprised.

For years, my "girls" have been growing. I went to The Big Pink a few times to get fit and I was a 36C consistently. However, the bras just didn't seem to fit right. They'd pucker in strange places and I had the lovely "under-arm fat" going on. It wasn't pretty but I though this was normal. But during fashion week in Las Vegas, Eve mentioned that I might be D-cup. Say what?? She said we needed to go to Nordstrom's and get me a proper fitting. So on Friday, we finally converged into the mega-mall and headed for the lingerie section at Nordstrom.

(Evie's new Silver Embrace Underwire Bra by Wacoal {image above}, bought after the fitting in Nordstrom for $46 AND in her correct size!)

The first thing we did was head for the sales rack. So many beautiful brands to try on! Elle Macpherson, Chantelle, Wacoal, and more. I was in lingerie heaven. A wonderful sales-woman, Jenny, came by to see if we needed anything and proceeded to make the entire fitting process very comfortable. It's not easy for me to take off my top and go naked on the upper-half in front of strangers, let alone good friends. But she was fantastically professional. The real shocker was the sizing. I'm not a 36C. I'm a 34D! Once we figured that out, Jenny went out and found bras that I loved and had to have (though I only bought one, I'm on a budget after all). I bought a lovely Wacoal bra that is sexy and perfectly functional to wear every day. Eve said this bra made me look as though I'd lost 10 pounds, which made me feel even better about myself.

The best part of getting properly fit and trying on the right size was that I felt properly supported. With a shirt on, I could see my figure and it looked different. I felt a little sexier, a little more beautiful (and let's not discuss my husband's reaction). My inner-Eve was definitely on her way out!

(Eve's favorite bra {above image}, this lingerie trip, the Rive Gauche Demi Cup Bra by Chantelle for $76. It comes in nude, black and red. The white dotted details on the bow and straps make this understated lacy and racy bra pop)

So Lingeristas, I ask that you go to Nordstrom and get properly fit, especially if it's been a few years since the last time and/or your bras aren't fitting right. Embrace your inner-Eve and see what happens!

Cheers, Evie
