TMI Tuesday - 10/2

You Wear It Well

Gemma Jones! I'll have to check out your blog....anyone who spells favourite with a 'u' in there rocks, in my book!!  

1. What is your most favourite thing to wear that you have in your closet at the moment?
I don't own a lot of clothes, but that's by choice.  I am very particular about my clothes - I don't care much how much it costs, but it must fit well, be comfortable and be flattering and enhancing.  If that happens for $5 in the sale bin or for $150 in a boutique, that's fine either way. As a result of this peccadillo I love all my clothes, but I do have one top that's a special favourite.  It's perfect in every way.  It's loose and comfortable, yet still has a flattering shape to it.  It's just long enough, but not too long.  It's soft, simple, doesn't wrinkle and always looks good and it's my go-to top every single time I travel. It's my worry-free choice.

2. What is the one item of clothing that you have seen on one of your friends / workmates that you would steal for yourself if you had the chance?
I can't think of anything specific, but I will say that if there was something, it would probably be a pair of shoes.  Of all the things in my wardrobe, I have the most difficulty finding shoes that are comfortable, yet stylish.  Apparently to have "comfortable and stylish shoes" is oxymoronic.  I just think it's moronic that they're not easier to find. :)

3. What is the one thing that your partner wears that never fails to turn you on. Why does it turn you on so much?
L often wears khaki pants, but in between he wears black or brown Levi's.  They are more fitted and hug his ass like nothing else.  I often end up a step or two behind L - my short legs struggle sometimes to keep up with his pace when he's not paying attention to slowing down to accommodate me, and I secretly lust after him as I stare at that sweet little ass as he walks in front of me.  It makes me think about all kinds of naughty things.

4. What is the one thing you wear when you want to attract the attention of your partner or others?
Probably something low cut.  L is very clearly a breast man.  I have pretty large breasts (H cup!) which can sometimes attract a fair amount of attention in general.  Depending on the situation, it can be interesting.  I've had men staring at my cleavage with their mouths practically watering...but I've had the other extreme too.  I was in the US with L and an elderly gentleman in the hotel elevator made his disapproval of my peekaboo top so apparent that I felt horribly uncomfortable and embarrassed and ended up going back to the room to change.  L thought it was funny.

5. When you want to feel sexy what do you wear and why?
That's a bit of a chicken and egg question.  No doubt, some clothes make you feel sexy.  But then sometimes feeling sexy, you choose certain clothes.  For me, the former is more common than the latter.  Since I like to feel sexy all the time, I think I achieve that best by always having on lovely bras and matching panties.  No matter what I I'm wearing on top, it's a bit titillating (no pun intended) to know that I'm very nicely kitted out underneath.  

6. If you had unlimited funds but could only shop for one type of clothing (shoes, lingerie, fetish etc) what would it be?
Lingerie for sure.  I have a serious bra fetish.  I probably have 20 or more bras of all colours (<--see that...it has a 'u'!) with matching panties.  Despite the lingerie fetish, I'm not really a girly-girl and I'm not keen on frills and ribbons.  I do like lace, but I'm seriously hot for these at the moment.  They are sexy, unique and remind me of rope bondage and they look fabulous!

Bonus: Tell us about your favourite scenario, real or fantasy, that involves some kind of clothing or fetish wear.
Every summer there is a fetish boat cruise here.  L and I have talked about going for the last three years, but it has yet to work out.  Although we both own clothing items that could be termed "fetish wear" (having prepared for that day when we actually go on the cruise) we've never worn them, except for each other!


  1. Bonus: I hope you get to do the fetish cruise this year AND post pics of your outfits.


  2. Well with an H cup, SHIT! I imagine investing in good bras is very necessary! For both the support and to help avoid back pain.

    I understand what you mean about your closet. I really TRY to do the same thing, but between time and finances it doesn't work very well. And I'm a plus sized woman which complicates matters. ESPECIALLY in the US. When I traveled in Europe a lot of boutiques carried smaller sizes. BUT when I found my size it fit well and was beautifully tailored. The shoulders were properly extended out instead of extra fabric just being sewn on in the middle and lengthening the torso. That kind of thing.

    It I had that unlimited budget mentioned in the bonus question, all my clothes would be specially made for me!

  3. Sounds like you've got a bit of a European spelling fetish...good to know. ;)

    Hope you manage to go on the fetish cruise soon!
