New Orleans burlesque star Trixie Minx is one of our favorite local regulars. Her troupe, Fleur de Tease, is often outfitted in Trashy Diva pieces and we love her irreverent style, which deftly mixes seduction with comedy. Below are some of her current favorites from our lingerie shops and her recommendations for that special someone this Valentine’s Day.
I LOVE the scalloped lace with eyelash trim. A super feminine and delicate look but it still has the molded cup, which gives the structure/support I need. Besides, black lace is the definition of elegant sensuality.
This is a piece of lingerie that is truly lush yet naughty. While it may look simple upon first glance, the racerback/trio straps are a beautiful detail and the dark jade color looks amazing on any skin tone. But my favorite part of this piece (and probably why you should buy it) is the front closure, which makes it an item that is perhaps more fun to take off than put on!
Even if your lady isn’t really into lingerie, no one can resist a gorgeous garter belt. Thigh high stockings are always sexy, but using a beautiful garter belt to hold them up takes you to a whole other level of glam. I particularly like this garter belt because of the tulle detail on the hip, which provides a flattering line to any woman looking to accentuate her curves. And of course this is an item that can stay on all night, if you choose.
A super comfy and flattering piece. You will want to wear this all the time, not just for special occasions. And in case you haven’t guessed from all these picks, I’m a sucker for lace. It truly is a luxurious and feminine look that accentuates the already beautiful body.
Trixie’s Spotlight Gift Picks
I love the perfection of the delicate lace construction of this set. It truly highlights the lady wearing the lingerie rather than the other way around. And the gold detailing just makes me feel super luxurious. The only thing better than wearing this set is wearing it while on vacation!
Possibly the most comfortable lingerie in the world. Classic black is flattering on everyone and can be mixed and matched with other sets. Again, one of the best parts is the front closure of the bra, which makes it equally as fun to take off as it is to wear.
Get your glam on and have a great Valentine’s Day!
