10th Commandment: February 13

Feb 13, 2012

If you don’t want to spend a fortune on new lingerie for Valentine’s Day, I have a suggestion: spend less on a garter belt and thigh highs.  They’re sexy, special and you can pair them with existing lingerie.

    Oh, hello NSFW! Belle is there any way to make the lingerie posts a click through or something?

  2. R says:

    This is an excellent suggestion.

  3. PH says:

    Also Belle, a great way to wear panty hose to work on a daily basis. ūüėČ

    Your boyfriend will thank you for it.

    Agree with Ellie. I immediately x'ed out out of shock when i first saw this one and had to do a look around to make sure no one was in view of my screen to make a comment! yikes!

    If you get this one:

    along with these:

    you can wear it under your skirt or dress for the date. Also, size up. I wear a size 6 in J Crew and bought the LG/XL garter with C/D tights, and they fit perfectly. My guy thought so, too.
