Featured Brand: Seven Till Midnight

Seven till Midnight is one of our most popular sexy costume brands here at Lingerie Diva, but did you know they make a wide selection of lingerie and sleepwear pieces as well? Kim Kardashian, an avid Seven Til Midnight fan, is modeling one of their leather waist cinchers, hot!

Here are some of my favorite pieces we carry by them. I love this particular shade of turquoise, but on top of that this sexy lace apron set is perfect for a night in. I would recommend getting take out though, you definitely won't want to cook in this saucy number.

I wonder what kind of wild dreams this exotic leopard sleep set would conjure up?

Rompers are by far my favorite type of lingerie, probably because I try to get away with wearing them out in public during the heatwave of summer. This one is especially sexy with the leopard print and red accents.

Seven Til Midnight also carries quite a nice selection of lingerie and costumes for those more voluptuous divas like this red lace plus size lingerie set!

Rock 'N Roll Bridal Lingerie Style

Last week, I "styled" Kate Middleton for her upcoming nuptials with HRH William. Now I take on the princess of controversy, Ms. Kate Moss who plans to wed Jamie Hince, lead singer of the Kills, early July 2011. Despite being the IT girl throughout the 90s, Kate Moss's career spans past the catwalk. Since she's classy yet edgy I chose some pieces that reflect that.

This satin underbust corset is the most traditional piece Kate Moss will mostly likely be adorning on her big. Especially now since she announced John Galliano will be designing her wedding gown.

Leather and lace and everything nice. Allure's leather teddy will be the perfect piece for the new new queen of the London rock scene.

Take a walk on the wild side. Why not jazz it up for the honeymoon night by adding a leather whip to this pin-up inspired lingerie set? Meow.

After Kate's had her turn with the whip, why not give Jamie the reins with this saucy lace and cuff lingerie set?

Best of Luck to my one of my favorite iconic divas!

Donna's Dress Shop

This past weekend one of my absolute FAVORITE stores in Kansas City, Donna's Dress Shop, held a garden party to debut some of their newest [vintage & new] floral springtime dresses. Donna's Dress Shop has been dressing stylist midtowners since 2007, Donna took over the old Midtown School of Dance location at 1410 W. 39th in 2009. Having been an alumni of the dance school, my initial reaction was mixed when they moved in. However, after attending the event on Sunday and falling in love with the space, I will definitely become a regular customer. They offer both new and vintage pieces. Since I've been watching Mad Men lately, I tend to fall for the evening dresses they acquire. ::Now I just need more fancy cocktail dates to wear them to!:: Here are some photos of the garden party. Make sure to follow Donna's Dress Shop on facebook! (Donna does in EXCELLENT job of photographing all of her newest purchases!)

Royal Bridal Lingerie

My favorite bachelor, HRH Prince William, will soon be off the market! William and the lovely Kate Middleton are to be wed April 29th. Nothing has been confirmed about her dress or undergarments, but after studying her style [and learning about her now infamous see through dress] I can guarantee it will be sexy and classy. Since Kate will soon be the ultimate diva (I mean who wouldn't want to be an actual princess) if I were Kate Middleton's stylists these are some of the bridal lingerie looks that I would recommend.

These two classic corsets would be perfect for under the royal wedding dress. The Axfords ivory satin corset pictured above is a traditional corset that will keep even Kate's tiny tum all tucked in. The Dreamgirl white lovely lace corset is a little bit more modern and flirty. I could see her in either of these corsets, it just really depends on the style and color of her wedding gown.

Every newlywed wants to make their honeymoon unforgettable. What better way then to wear special sexy lingerie the whole time you're away?

I think Kate would really like the sweet and sexy ruffles on this lingerie set by Shirley of Hollywood.

Dreamgirl's sexy chiffon robe and bra set would be prefect for lounging around the honeymoon suite.

Since the royal couple is getting married in April, I'm sure Kate will be packing a few Spring time hued lingerie pieces. I think this sequined, open-front baby doll would look stunning on her. Don't you?

Featured Brand: Oh La La Cheri!

Congrats to Nicolas Attard and the lovely people of Oh La La Cheri! Via Body Magazine, due to their expanding grasp on the lingerie market they are moving to a new, larger [double the size!] warehouse space. Also, they've added two new members to their creative team. Ludovic Nicoleau, previously with Victoria Secret, has been named the vice president of creative and Michelle Restrepo is the newest assistant designer. With their wealth of experience in the lingerie industry I am VERY intrigued to see what new lines await us, divas! Oh La La Cheri has been a long favorite of mine, they have done a great job of modernizing the romantic lingerie of the classic French tradition. These are just a few of my favorite pieces we currently carry.

Sultry polka-dotted bustier with lace details oozes Parisian seduction without all that tormented heartache.

As Ella sings below, I love Paris because my love is here, with this innocently sexy lingerie set your love [or lust] will follow you anyway.

Whether you wear this Americana chemise in the bedroom or out as lingerie apparel, no one would think twice to question your loyalties.

In closing, enjoy one of my favorite songbirds, Ms. Ella Fitzgerald.

St. Patty's Day - Lingerie Diva Style

I love holidays, and St. Patrick's Day is no exception. I started my day by joining thousands of others lining the streets and watching the Kansas City Irish Parade, one of the city's best traditions. The theme this year was "No small potatoes: A tribute to the wee Irish" and the parade participants took it very seriously. Lots of leprechauns, shamrocks and, of course, potatoes. I never knew how many versions of potato costumes (like the two boys marching with the Irish dancers below) there were until yesterday!

After that I wandered down to Westport, where the streets were blocked off and everyone had a green beer. As my friends and I made our way through Westport, I couldn't help but spot several lovely ladies whose outfits and accessories I just had to share.

First there was this woman, who was marching in the parade (a brave feat in those heels)!

But I just love how fun and sexy her shamrock tights and fishnets were! I think I might have to buy a pair of these for next year.

This sexy Leprechaun was one of the few girls in costume yesterday (a shame if you ask me). You can't see it in the photo, but she had shamrocks all over her dress.

And I loved the fun twist these two put on kilts, adding sexy green fishnets boots.

But this girl had what was by far my favorite St. Patrick's Day accessory. I loved her tiny little top hat (reminds me of a few mini hats that Lingerie Diva carries) but the sassy black fishnet is what puts me over the top - so cute! Definitely going to be adding this to my St. Patty's Day outfit for next year!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Divas! You've seen my favorite green and Irish inspired sexy costumes, here are some of my favorite green lingerie pieces. Even if you not going out to celebrate this holiday, why not wear some green underneath? Hopefully the luck of the Irish is with you....;)

This green leopard print babydoll set by Oh La La Cheri could woo any leprechaun away from his pot of gold.

I love the seductive neckline of this sexy green dress set by Dreamgirl, matching neckband and thong are included!

Maybe you could choreograph a little burlesque to Danny Boy? This ruffled green corset by Daisy Corsets does come with those matching boyshorts!

Fuller Figure Diva Spring Trends

Here at Lingerie Diva we think ladies of all shapes and sizes are sexy which is why we carry an extensive selection of plus size lingerie. Since Spring is just around the corner spruce up your dresser with some sexy numbers in this season latest trends.

As I've mentioned before lingerie apparel or "lingerie as outwear" is once again a huge trend on the catwalks, especially corsets and babydolls. Corsets are versatile. This polka dotted black corset by Coquette is sophisticated enough for work if paired with a blazer, yet fun enough to grab cocktails in, just add some gold bangles!

While babydolls might not be deemed work appropriate, you can definitely transition this wild leopard print babydoll by Elegant Moments from the bedroom to the dance floor. Just make sure to layer accordingly or use pasties!

Another trend in the fashion and lingerie is the play on naughty and nice, lace vs leather. My favorite combination of this is this leather and lace plus size baby doll by Allure. Plus! You can easily pair this with some leggings and heels!

If you're feeling more romantic why not try this lace chemise by Seven 'Till Midnight. Pair this with heels and hose for a sexy night in.

Nothing like says sexy like ruffles. This ruffled bikini will definitely be a head turning.

Boy! Do I have a busy weekend ahead of me. Tonight I'm attending the Kansas City Ballet's spring performance and tomorrow I have a wedding! Thinking about what to wear was making me dizzy. Luckily, Lingeria Diva carries more then just lingerie, they also have quite a large selection of sexy clothes, too! I need two sexy outfits for this weekend, I finally narrowed it down to my top 3!

Pretty sure this is what I'll be wearing to the wedding. Since it's an evening wedding, I figured why not where this sexy glamorous dress. Plus if you haven't noticed by now, I'm a sucker for sequins and glitter. ::who isn't?::

I love the green pleats and leather waist cincher. I would wear this sexy dress even if it wasn't St. Patrick's Day

Why not combine green with spring's latest fashion trend, polka dots!?! I'm sure the luck of the Irish will be bestowed upon whomever wears this sexy look.

Peta Handbras

In typical PETA fashion, they creatively protest the use of leather and fur even in lingerie. These are some of my favorite campaigns sans lingerie.

Love the look of leather lingerie, but don't want to hurt those cute little cuddly animals? Check out our vinyl lingerie section!
