Remembering Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Vintage Dress Form
This was my mother’s from when she attended Bunka Fashion College in the 70’s. Back then they used to take measurements of each student and have a dress form made to their size. The pins are a little rusted, the threads are coming loose here and there, but overall there are no tears or stains and its still beautiful to this day. I use it everyday in my ElmaShop studio. Thanks Mom!

Flashback in the festival spirit, remember Milla Jovovich in Dazed and Confused ? Love this look.

Introducing a new panty fit. The Nina Shorty.

It has a low-rise boyshort fit and sits low on the hipline, so it flatters all body types. I used a super soft velvet elastic that doesn’t cut into the waist, and you get the option of choosing between no garters for a great everyday panty ($35), or with detachable garter straps ($45) for a sexier version. It comes in two classic colors, Frosty Mint and Champagne Ivory. Get them both here.
