As many of you already know, we are crazy for tights over here, and now that temperatures are dipping down into wintery territory, what better time to build up your collection of "stem covers?"

Shimmy-shimmy burly-q! These pantyhose move and shake- the perfect gift for the go-go girl in your life!

Love these stocking/garter illusion hose! It's like you went through all that trouble, but you didn't!
And leopard goes with everything.

We also carry fence-net, diamond-net and fishnet stockings, Cuban-heeled seemed stockings and solid, opaque tights!

This past Sunday, we shook off our holiday sweaters and slipped into something a little less comfortable to create a tableaux at Vintage Vivant's Forbidden Vices party. Charm School Vintage and Black Swan Theory curated the silky and salacious wardrobe, while yours truly designed some wigs befitting the denizens of a 1920s opium lair...

Erin made these tassled garters! I may need to carry these in the shop, no?
Shelley, of ATX Streetstyle blog, leggy as all get out
Jordan, reminds me of a gothic Snow White here...

Et moi, in the wig that I wish was my natural hair!
