A submission from old friend denier69:

This silver-grey satin set with robe truly seemed to call out for a Ms-Curves considered opinion..  It is photographed by Stela Tangassi of Monterey Mexico.  I have agents scouring the planet to determine its maker (really?).   I would if I could :-).
PS.. here’s more of this “carbon-made” collection.

It’s hard to see the whole look well here, but what I see I like. The colour is nice. The use of the lace is nice. The style of briefs is not my norm, but it’s the nicest execution of that style. In short, I like.

Marlies Dekkers Lingerie AW2014 ‘The Heroic Journey’ Collection 

Marlies Dekkers is a designer that I have struggled with a bit. I love that the styles are so distinctive… although I am not always sure they succeed in the “something I desire and would wear” category. This also falls into the category… although I would love to see how this looks being worn. (If anyone can find an example and send me a link, I would love to see.)

Another “lingerie art” post (as one friend has described these pieces of clothing on white background, removed from being worn)… and I love it. This is the kind of “everyday” style I should have more of. On sale for 50% off, the bra is just €22, although in limited sizing (sadly none of which are for me). The briefs are also on sale at €11, but even more limited in sizes left (46 only)…. although you can probably find it elsewhere as well.

Sunday night insomnia

After not posting for a week or two, then throwing a few things out, here I am again… this time I can’t sleep.

So hi to all of you who are up… and, as always, if anyone wants to keep me (virtual) company, send me a hello.

#Steampunk #WonderWoman! Custom ensemble by #darkgardencorsetry, of course. Stop by 10th and Folsom to admire in person at the #folsomstreetfair! #corset #handmade #sfmade #cosplay (at Folsom Street Fair 2014)

Gimme it.

Tying together a few themes of this Tumblr, this was too spot on to pass up. (I’ve never been into the whole superhero thing, but Wonder Woman has always been one I like, way back from when she was represented by Lynda Carter… but this take is perhaps even better in some respects.)

Yes, I just proposed the first Ms. Curves “Artsy Pinup Symbolism Essay Challenge” contest

In case you missed it a few posts ago, under the artsy pinup(ish) picture, the first Artsy Pinup Symbolism Essay Challenge.

I would be thrilled if anyone actually took me up on it. (And, if they do, I will seriously try to come up with some kind of prize…)

(This is what happens when I go a week or two without blogging. I come back and try new and unusual things, just to see if anything comes of it.)

See the earlier post for details.

And finally, for the moment at least, a set that I am certain I have seen before and actually kind of like (even with the sheer panels).

So another challenge (in addition to the Artsy Pinup Symbolism Essay Challenge): can anyone tell me who makes this set?

Here is one completely out of left field… I have been following a few Tumblrs with classic pinup and burlesque images, which is where this comes from.

I would LOVE to read someone’s take on the symbolism going on here. (And simply stating there are tones of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is not sufficient. I want details.) Any takers? (I could even try to come up with some kind of prize for the best mini-essay. Send in your entry through Ask Anything or as Fan Mail… or even to the email address on my About Me page.)

Update: I’ve now dubbed this the Artsy Pinup Symbolism Essay Challenge, just to make it more official sounding.

My beatiful custom corset made by Corsetry & Romance.

I totally had a physical reaction to this corset

My curiosity for corsets continues… and while I am not sure this is one I could see fitting into my style, it is undeniably gorgeous.
