New Designs from Playful Promises DD-G Collection

August 21st, 2016 @ Amber

Some of the new fuller bust collection from Playful Promises is now available! They’ve added the new Rosie, Mariela, and a new colorway for Portia as well as the signature Lily. If you’re a fuller bust lady, go buy these! You’ll love them. Available in band sizes 30-36 and bands DD-G. These are some of my favorite full bust bras, because they’re actually sexy, and not just boring floral prints and bright patterns. They have gorgeous black and red satin, chartreuse and black lace, strappy designs and open cups! I’m so in love with everything Playful Promises has been doing. They’ve expanded their bra sizing, which I appreciate so much, so I love to support brands that actually listen to customers and add expanded sizing. The sizing must have done well because they’ve added more designs. Support the brand and get yourself some great fitting lingerie at the same time! Money talks. So when you show your support for a brand through purchasing, it lets them know there is a demand to keep producing those sizes.

Prints Tees on Etsy

August 19th, 2016 @ Amber

It’s Teal Tuesday! Nah, just kidding. It’s Friday. But check out these awesome Wentworth inspired t-shirts from Prints Tees on Etsy. The brand is based in Iowa, and they make a bunch of cool tees¬† with professional printing on the front. I’m a big fan of the Aussie TV show Wentworth, so I loved these fun and playful Wentworth tees they have. I got the awesome Property of Wentworth Prison tee for my sister, who is obsessed with the show. The shit feels like a nice quality t-shirt and the print looks really good. It can even be printed on a teal shirt, to make it more realistic to the show and fandom. They also have other designs from pop culture. They offer a few different colors of shirts to choose from and each t-shirt is printed to order! The shirts are available in sizes up to 5XL, with most tees priced under $20. They also make cool vinyl decals. Check the entire shop to see all of the designs.

Mariesa Mae Lingerie

August 19th, 2016 @ Amber

Introducing Mariesa Mae Lingerie! Created by burlesque dancer and lingerie lover Mariesa. Each piece is so gorgeous and sexy and fun. Mariesa is a one woman show, she does it all herself, including a lot of the modeling! She is the stunning woman in the photos from the look book. Her designs and the representation of her wearing her own products makes me so happy! Loving her Lola n Leather designs, which features leather, mesh and stretch silk. So playful. Everything is available in UK sizes S-L, but Mariesa hopes to expand the line as she goes, adding new designs and hopefully new sizes as well.

Nubian Skin Moroccan Nights Collection

August 19th, 2016 @ Amber

Nubian Skin has just released their new collection, “Moroccan Nights”, which features beautiful black and blue colorways. The collection is a fashion collection in addition to their classic darker skintone nude line. The collection is available for pre-order and will be ready to ship in October. Get your orders in to make sure you don’t miss out! The bras are available in band sizes 30-38 and cup sizes B-G. Yes, you’ve heard that right…they’ve expanded their cup sizing! So excited that they’re including full bust sizes now! Panties are available in XS-XXL sizing, and the new lounge/sleepwear pieces in the collection are available in sizes S-L. The brand has done awesome things in the lingerie market. They had become a quick favorite for being the only brand offering nude tones to WOC. The brand also got another boost when Beyonce and her dancers wore Nubian Skin on her Formation tour. I’m so glad that the brand is doing well, which is no surprise. There is a huge market for nude tones for women of color, and it took Nubian Skin for other brands to take notice and see that POC want and demand more skintone options with their intimates. Check out some of the lookbook images below and check out the entire collection at Nubian Skin.

Sugaroma Candles

August 18th, 2016 @ Amber

As much as I’m a lingerie addict, I’m also obsessed with other things like candles. I recently found this lovely fresh handmade candle brand in California called Sugaroma. The brand is a one woman show, everything is handpoured and made by Sayaka. She creates really fresh and juicy scents like mint and sugar cane, lemon and vanilla, and peach and mint. The candles are available in glass tumblers or silver tins. Even the packaging is cute! I like the labels which are stamped with the number of the candle scent, and name of the candle. Each scent is a roman numeral, and is stamped in a brightly colored ink. Each box is wrapped in a black bow, and the tins are wrapped in a cellophane gift bag with ribbon bow. I really like the scents, they smell sweet and fresh and yummy. One of my favorite scents was No. II Bliss, which smells like peach and mint. You can smell the fruity note of juicy peach paired with a hint of mint. So yummy! I recently tried a few of these candles, and they’re awesome. I tried Bliss, Nostalgia, Lux and Lemona. Each one is delectable and so fragrant. Plus the packaging is modern and fresh and stylish.

Lux is a pretty blend of rose and bergamot, it’s floral and fruity. Lemona smells so good, almost like candle or like a memory from childhood, of zesty lemon and a hint of rich vanilla. Nostalgia is bold and fruity with blackberry and a note of sage. Bliss is juicy and ripe and smells like peaches with a hint of sugared mint leaves. They smell good enough to eat! (But please dont) These candles are made with pure soy wax, no paraffin wax and no icky add-ins. The fragrance notes are bold without being too overpowering, and the scents aren’t artificial smelling. This brand new line of candles is awesome, and would look so cute around the home as decor. I love supporting small business and especially woman run businesses, so check out the entire line of pretty candles at Sugaroma Candles.

The show ended after season 3 but there is talk that they may be making a tv movie or possibly going for season four. Us Phryne lovers can only hope! We love watching this sassy woman detective solve crimes all while looking fabulous and spouting womens lib at the drop of a hat. I’ve put together a collective of lingerie, loungewear, fashion, jewelry and accessories to help you achieve a Phryne Fisher inspired look.

Penelopi Jones Clitoring

August 16th, 2016 @ Amber

How amazing is this Clitoris Ring by Penelopi Jones? Designed from the anatomy of the clit, which is more than meets the eye. The clitoris is more than just the nub that is visible, and it’s “legs” extend into the vagina, even if we can’t see it. I used to run a sex toy blog, and loved to feature womens pieces that focused on anatomy and the clit. So when I first saw this awesome ring, affectionately known as the clitoring, available in silver, gold, or brass, I was smitten. One of my favorite parts of the female form, and now I can show my pride and respect for it on my finger! This ring was designed using the form and x-ray of the internal clitoris, and just how amazing and cool this little bit of anatomy is. The ring is available in finger sizes 5-9 (its adjustable, but does not look like an adjustable ring) and for sizes larger than 9. Even feminist leader Gloria Steinem rocks this ring!

How awesome is that?! I recently got the sterling silver ring, and it’s so fucking cool looking! It fits like a dream, is well made, and incredibly detailed. It feels like a great quality piece of jewelry, and for those in the know, they’ll immediately ask about your ring. Even the folks who say “What is that?” or think it’s a butterfly. Great way to talk about the clitoris, and stomp the patriarchal taboo of talking about a woman’s body. My clitoris is a big part of my identity, it’s been a great learning experiencing as I began looking more into anatomy, including my own in my early 20s. I hear so many women who still don’t understand the wonderful workings of the clitoris or get embarrassed about talking about it. So I love that this ring is a great conversation started! Created by artist Orien Mcneill, who is super talented. Not into rings? No worries, pendant necklaces are available too! Each piece is handmade in NYC. It comes with a cool ‘clitoris fact’ card and is wrapped in a tulle drawstring bag.

I love this Penelopi Jones Clit Ring so much. I need it in gold now! They also have a gallery that they like customers to submit their pics too. Just snap a picture of your clit ring and hashtag it with #clitoring on social media. The designer was kind enough to offer my readers a 15% off discount for anyone who buys a silver piece of clit jewelry from their line.

DISCOUNT CODE: Use code ‘scarletletter’ at checkout to save 15% off all silver clit jewelry!

Happy shopping!
