Real Life in Lingerie: Peek-a-boo-garter

For those of you who have been wondering if you can layer the silk stockings over tights, let me shout an emphatic, "Yes we can!" (Nope, my enthusiasm still hasn't worn off, and I haven't stopped talking about Obama, in spite of the Onion's assertions. As the cool weather approaches, some of you may be thinking that garters aren't appropriate for winter, given the bare thigh factor, but this nips that problem in the bud. I'd also like to point out that garters are apparently the hot new thing and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon all of a sudden, so kudos to Portland ladies for always being one sartorial step ahead of the country! (Let's hope this means my garter belt orders will actually go to production in the future.) Here I've paired the stockings with some teal tights, my LD Tuttle boots from Stand Up Comedy, an H & M high-waisted skirt, a Rebecca Taylor top from Le Train Bleu and the Araks Ivana bralette. On a side note, I know no one wants to see my photo on the blog every week, so anyone who comes into the store proudly displaying some lingerie for me to photograph for our Real Life in Lingerie feature (or emails me a tasteful photo that can be used on the blog) will get 15% off any single item in the store! Show 'em while you've got 'em, ladies.
