Could I Blog Professionally?

I wish I could but I just don’t think my writing skills are up to the task.

My favorite lingerie blogger in the world, The Lingerie ASeleenaK_5435_cropsddict, is looking for additional staff.  She  appears to be doing very, very well  and therefore needs to expand.  And the coolest part of her expansion is that she’d consider transgender writers!

Cora, the Lingerie Addict herself,  has always been a friend to the LGBT community.  She has zero tolerance for trans hate and understands the often unique needs we have at the lingerie counter.  So the possibility that she might select a staffer from the TG world is very exciting!

If I thought I had even a slight chance of filling the position I’d apply, but I think you all cut me a lot of slack here.  I just don’t think my writing skills are ready for prime time, and my lingerie knowledge is likely a little shallow as well.  But if you have the time, the talent and the expertize, you absolutely should apply to be part of her wonderful team.

Hopefully I’ll be updating this post in the near future to tell you that a TG blogger is part of the TLA team!  But in the meantime, if you care about lingerie, subscribe to The Lingerie Addict.  Your lingerie will fit better, you’ll save a tons of money and you’ll wow them when your daywear comes off!

Update: Sadly, I’m not longer recommending the Lingerie Addict.  I’m of the opinion that racism and racist rhetoric runs in both directions and I no longer follow this blogger.  I just got tired of listening to her complain “why are the no women of color ..” appearing in ads or getting modeling assignments.  Marketing staff go to great lengths to present the most marketable image and if that doesn’t involve women of color, why must it be considered a racial snub?   Good bye, and  good luck. You’re as racist as those you hate.

8 Must-Have Lingerie Items

Okay, so Elle Magazine here in Canada just came out with an article on their Fashionism website entitled “8 Must-Have Lingerie Items”

Here’s what they had to say:

Must-have lingerie

Sexy pieces every woman should have in her lingerie drawer.

If you want your lingerie to sizzle all year ’round — turn up the heat with some super-salicious pieces.  ELLE Canada visited hot lingerie shop, Avec Plaisir, in Toronto, where sexy celebs like Mariah Carey and Catherine Zeta Jones head for their unmentionables.  We chat with owner Vasilia on how to build the perfect lingerie wardrobe.

  • Demi-lace bra For those low-cut items that give just a glimpse of décolletage, you need something that’s flirty and stands out.
  • Bustier Bra  A bustier gives you lift and sex appeal. “It’s perfect for under a jacket,” says Vasilia, “or any item where you want to show something off. La Perla makes some beautiful ones.”
  • Well-fitted corset No ladies, corsets aren’t just reserved for the 18th century or weddings. Corsets cinch the waist and enhance curves, plus, due to modern technological advancements, you can actually breathe in them.
  • Long Gown A flowing knit gown is a no-fuss approach to sleepwear but still exudes a sex kitten look. “Comfort and sexiness is what all women want,” explains Vasilia.
  • Baby Doll Innocent and va-va-voom at the same time, a lacy black baby doll will bring out the inner romantic in you. ” It’s so comfy and playful,” says Vasilia. “and oh-so-flirty.”
  • Strapless Bra Set A must! It’s the turn-to bra in the summer or for that perfect cocktail dress and every woman needs one. “Getting the whole set, complete with flirty panties and sexy garter makes it extra special,” explains Vasilia, “especially if only you know they are under there!”
  • French-seamed stockings The best way to describe a pair of well-made French-seamed hose — sultry. Vasilia insists it’s “a must-have.” Bonus: The seam up the back is like a magnet for a guy’s eye.
  • Fish net stay-ups A slick pair of fish net hose never goes out of style and nothing gives more definition to your legs. “It’s worth investing in high-end stockings,” says Vasilia, “they complete your outfit and make you look very polished. Opt for a pair from Wolford, they’re worth the investment!”

I’m bringing this to your attention for a couple reasons.  First off, it would appear that corsets, seamed stockings and fishnets are becoming more and more mainstream.  Good?  I think so.  But what’s left for those of us who would like to continue to dress on the edge?  Wearing latex to the PTA meeting?

And what’s all this about comfort?  It’s not important to all of us.  Remember what “Fernando” on SNL used to say (with his sexy Spanish accent) .. “Darlings, it’s better to rook good than to feel good!

And secondly, I did notice there were two things on the list that I don’t even own.  And not surprisingly, they’re the two most mainstream items on the list, in my opinion.  A baby doll and a long night gown.

Sooooo .. if mainstream girls are gonna start wearing the stuff that are staples in my wardrobe, I’m going to start wearing their things!

Anyone want to send me a baby doll or a long gown? I really don’t want to freak the ladies out when I strut my tranny self into the type of lingerie store that specializes in them.  I promise to wear them for you and will do a photo album or two for my site. *giggling*
