Antique Fetish Wear

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Saving the best for last…it was a nice surprise to see at the end of the LACMA exhibit these very rare and wonderful pieces of clothing. Over 100 year old fetish boots, lingerie and corsets. The workmanship is unbelievable. I’ve been collecting vintage lingerie and fetish shoes and clothing for 20  years. So these boots are impossible to find unless you’re a very wealthy & connected collector.

I was lucky enough to acquire a few fetish stiletto heels & boots from the 40’s and 50’s when I modeled for a few fetish wear catalogs when I was 20. One being the famous Pleasure Chest in Hollywood Cal. I got to rummage around a very old storage room that had some really old boxes of clothing. I was given some shoes, boots and a few corsets to take home. They just thought they were junk but I knew better! I’ll post some photographs of a few pieces from my collection here in the upcoming days or weeks. So check back.

Fun Thing To Do In Los Angeles

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

Once a month there is a huge street party in down town called the art walk. All the galleries, restaurants, & other stores open their doors and there are blocks of food, art, live music, street performers and people walking around. It’s a really fun atmosphere. A must: http://www.downtownartwalk.com/

This amazing vintage style gown is one of my favorites. Even though it’s a modern designer dress it’s still as glamorous. From the exhibit: Addressing Fashion at the Met

Vintage Boots: Missed At The Met

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

I just stumbled across these amazing photos of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m so sad I missed this exhibit but the Met’s blog photos are stunning & will have to do. It has some amazing pieces of vintage fashion art.  Designer vintage & antique dresses, shoes, and I especially love these vintage 1920’s (almost antique) designer fetish boots. Being an ex vintage fetish model I have an affinity for these well made pieces of art. They’re nothing like the modern garbage you see now at places like the Pleasure Chest or cheap knock off poseur fetish wear stores like Hot Topic. The quality of vintage clothing is so much better than todays clothing.
