I Have Other Ideas for the Bed Wedge

tagged , , , and

bed wedge system for sleeping better... and a varied sex life!I’m getting an idea and it’s going like this:

“Hey doc, I wake up with super stiff muscles. It’s effecting my work performance and quality of life. Definitely.”

That’s when doc writes a note and the insurance company ponies up for one of the ungainly named “Contoursleep Bed Wedge Systems“.

And that’s how I get free adult furniture. That I can comfortably sleep on, too.

What part of that isn’t genius?

Vintage Bathing Suits

tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and

My Lee Vintage Bathing Suits from eBay Look at my new vintage bathing suit! That beautiful blue and black polka dotted one-piece from eBay is my newest swimwear. A homemade bikini was actually in the works, because we took the Wardrobe Refashion Pledge. But like most great wardrobe choices, that bathing suit was love at first sight and I had to have it!

I haven’t worn a one-piece in years and frankly I didn’t think that a genuine vintage bathing suit would be very comfortable since a lot of them were wool. But I put those concerns aside and decided to be adventurous.

I’m so glad I did because not only is this skirted one-piece cuter than any of the bikinis I have been watching, and it’s made of super comfortable cotton. Even better, it was “new old stock” (commonly noted as “NOS” on eBay) so although my Lee Swimplay suit is probably from the 1950′s, I’m still the first one to wear it!

If you’re still searching for the perfect swimsuit (or one of many) and want something really unique for summer then you must see the selection of vintage bathing suits on eBay.

Here are a few of the hottest vintage swimsuits being bid on right now. It surprised me that, almost without exception, one-pieces are the hottest sellers. Despite the popularity of the modern bikini – and I swear it’s not hyperbole to say that nearly everyone in southern California wears one – it seems that a new retro-loving generation is discovering the one-piece.

Some truly fantastic maillot swimsuits did come from seasons past; highly styled designer suits of the 40′s and 50′s, the profusely psychedelic prints of the 60s, deep V necklines and bias cuts of the 70s, and uber high cut legs and fluorescent colors of the 80s. Whether you’re a vintage fashionista or a lover of all things retro and ironic, there’s a style for you.

Find the perfect retro vintage inspired swimwear on our Vintage Swimsuits page for both women and men!

Fashion Tights in 45 Colors

tagged , , , , , , , and

Legwear, especially textured tights, is really hot this season. It’s a trend that resurfaced in Fall of 2005 and is only getting more popular. Unlike most fads, it’s functional and affordable as well as a being a stylish fashion accessory. However, if you only shop at retail stores you’re going to miss out on the true versitility that 45 colors of legwear provides. Forget the standard black and nude; this winter you can adorn your legs with any of the 58 colors and prints available from We Love Colors. For someone like me who has searched in vain for that perfect pair of pink tights to match a vintage mod dress, or yearned for opaque thigh-highs in several hues, WLC is a dream come true.

If you’re a hosiery aficionado you’re probably already familiar with We Love Colors, since they manufacture their own products and many of them are exclusively sold on their website. Along with standard tights, you can also find fishnets, thigh highs, knee highs, and the insanely popular footless tights/capris. Their selection is pretty huge, and also includes styles for men and children, as well as accessories. As a little testiment to their deserved popularity and customer satisfaction, WLC has an entire blog dedicated to their legwear being featured in fashion shoots and on the catwalk, and a blog featuring photos from their customers. In fact, if you send in a photo of yourself in any of their products you may be featured, but they’ll also send you a free gift (contact them for details).
