The Lingerie Post is the home for lingerie and underwear fanatics on the web. Read and respected by industry insiders and consumers alike, they seek to provide current information on everything from designers and brands to sales and stores. Their readers are active participants in sharing their love of lingerie in their forums. From the world’s most famous designers and brands to new, up-and-coming talent, lingeristas frequent TLP for all the latest news to stock their drawers with the prettiest of things.
I first met Krista when she attended our 3rd Between the Sheets Fashion Show in 2007, and since she has been a great supporter and one of our biggest fans! You might be curious what makes her advice so meaningful that we wanted her contribution to our gift guides- WELL she started her own blog, Life in the Girl Lane, and like many we know in the lingerie blogosphere it started with a insatiable appetite to share information, specifically about lingerie! She came across TLP when it was first launched, and let’s just say it was love at first “site”. Her passionately persistent tips on new brands and lingerie news led them to invite her to be a writer! Within that year she was covering the opening of Journelle in NYC, meeting Elle Macpherson, and attending our BTS Fashion Show, and this weekend it will officially be 4 years of her writing for them! We’re wishing her and the Lingerie Post a very happy anniversary, because few relationships make it this far and bear this much creative fruit!
With her proximity to New York and all of the brands and market events Krista has her finger on the pulse of the lingerie industry. She is often the first on the web to share exciting news from existing brands and also to give TLP readers their first look at up and coming brands like ourselves! I can’t imagine a lingerie world without The Lingerie Post or Krista, and I’m honored to be able to take a turn on the other side of the table and share her story and her 2010 holiday gift picks with us!
Sister-in-Law – Playdate robe in Shade
I know my sister-in-law would adore the Playdate robe! She’s a busy working mom of 3 very active kids who wants to be comfortable, but needs to be stylish. The mesh/voile trim provides that something unexpected that will make her feel sophisticated and stunning whether she’s wearing the robe on a weekend getaway or simply around the house.
Best Friend – Well Played cardigan in Champagne
My best friend is a working mom who is also active in the community. The versatility of the cardigan will keep her both warm and sleek as she travels from the office to the soccer field to the fundraiser.
College Cousin – Come Out and Play cami in Midnight and Dawn
My cousin is the quintessential college student. She is not only an amazing student, but also actively involved in student organizations and the dance team. This cami is perfect for being both cute and comfortable as she treks all over campus! The colors are also perfect to get her in the holiday spirit and remind her that she’ll be back home soon!
World Traveling Friend – Well Played lounge pant in Midnight
When you travel as much as my cousin does (both for her job as a consultant and for her own pleasure), you spend a lot of time on airplanes and airports. While those places aren’t known for being plush, she can still be cozy and comfortable curling up on her long flights.
Not-so-Newlywed Friend – Playdate babydoll in Dawn
After a few years of marriage, it can be a challenge to keep the spark alive (so I hear from my friend…). I know she is always seeking ways to rekindle the flame so she’d adore adding this babydoll to her collection. Whether she’d wear it for sleep or for play, it would match either occasion.
For Myself! – Playdate racerback tank in Midnight
Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m both sugar and spice so anything I can wear that represents those two (and sometimes dueling) aspects of my personality is going to be a winner! For me, the Racerback Tank epitomizes sophisticated, sexy, and sweet. It shows just enough skin to turn heads, but leaves plenty to the imagination. Most of my tops are black so I’m always looking for a chance to mix it up and Shade is the perfect color to do so. I can already imagine pairing the tank over my favorite skinny jeans for a night of painting the town red!
