Getting Into Trouble

5 04 2010

This is not a typical blog post…

Steeling my nerves, I opened the door of the A-1 Detective Agency and stepped across the threshold, eyes zeroing in on the man I was here to see.  He was sitting behind a desk, shirt only half buttoned but his hat still firmly in place.  I blinked once, twice and then shut the door firmly, striding over to stand in front of the desk.  He didn’t even look up from the stack of papers he was signing.  I gripped the belt ties of my trench coat and waited for him to acknowledge my presence in the room.  And he would acknowledge me.  I was, after all, standing in front of his desk.  Besides, if all else failed, what I was wearing underneath this coat was sure to get his attention. 

My hands tightened on the ties as he finally looked up with a raised eyebrow. 

“You lost, doll?” His tone was far less helpful than his words.

I shook my head, trying to remain calm and collected, but truth was he made me a little nervous.  Okay, a lot nervous.  He was so much more…male than I expected him to be.  Tall, dark, and handsome was the cliché that came to mind, but with a healthy does of mysterious and sexy to round out the equation.  Why, oh why did I have to be attracted to him?  This would make what I had to do that much harder in the long run.  “I need your help.”

Valentine Seduction

8 02 2010

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day, and I certainly wouldn’t be me, if there weren’t a lingerie post in here somewhere.  Of course, there are tons of special Valentine’s sets out there and I have a few of them, but I wanted to focus on a more seductive style for my Valentine’s Day.  I wanted something a bit daring with a bit of an edge and Jade by Blacklace was a perfect fit.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #1

1 01 2010

Technically, I should have been showing you the best lingerie set of 2009 yesterday, but alas my schedule did not work out that way.  Instead, we’re going to spend the first day of the New Year looking back at my favorite lingerie set of 2009.  This is the set that is definitely the most ‘me’.  While I do have that girly, princess side I mentioned before, my dark side always comes first. This set is my darkness turned into lingerie.   My pick for the #1 lingerie set of 2009 is Belle by Blacklace.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #2

31 12 2009

As we near the end of this lingerie countdown, it’s gets harder and harder to make decisions.  There were so many great releases in lingerie this year, and I probably have them all.  It gets especially hard when you love more than one set from a particular designer.  In the end, though, there is always that one set that stands out above the rest.  #2 on our countdown is Lianna by Reasonable Desires.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #3

30 12 2009

While I spend most of my time on the darker side of fashion, there is a girly, princess side to my personality that will not be ignored.  Never is this more obvious than when I see pretty lingerie with ribbons and bows.  Number 3 on our countdown of Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 is Jolene by Blowpop.

Arcadia’s Top 5 Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #4

29 12 2009

The thing I love most about this little mini countdown of my favorite lingerie sets of 2009 is how different they all are.  And not just different in design; they each evoke a different feeling or mindset.  Good lingerie should help you feel beautiful and sexy, but it can also set a scene in your mind’s eye, and the set at #4  is definitely one of those – Olear by Movin Lingerie.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #5

28 12 2009

The end of the year is a time to reflect back on the past and look forward to the future.  To that end, there are lots of lists…top ten moments, top ten books, etc.  Since I’ve not done a “Week of Lingerie” in quite some time, I thought it would be fun to take this week and look back at my favorite lingerie sets of 2009.  Starting today, I’ll showcase one set each day for five days. 

I’d like to preface this by saying that it is not my intention to imply one designer is better than another.  This is based strictly on MY personal taste and nothing else.  I admire the work of many designers, but to keep this list as short as possible I’m only focusing on those sets that made me say wow; the sets that inspired me to buy every available color; the sets that I wish I had in RL. 

We begin our countdown at #5 with Version 12 by WTW.
