Chiffon in Her Kitchen
Well… I just deleted all of Chiffon’s videos from YouTube (apart from the farewell one). I could go on about Google but the best solution is to avoid anything Google-related. It is becoming easier thankfully with http://www.duckduckgo.com and http://vimeo.com providing excellent alternatives.
So Chiffon’s videos are now here: http://vimeo.com/chiffon
Not all uploaded yet but I’m working on it.
There have been a few new additions to Chiffon’s Wardrobe and Chiffon’s Boudoir since my last blog post. Updates to the Boudoir and Clips4Sale sites generally happen at the beginning of the month.
The latest update to Chiffon’s Wardrobe is a rather nice little tartan dress that I picked up in a charity shop last year. It is very slinky! I reckon that it is probably from the 80s going by the style. The top part buttons up to the shoulder – quite unusual. It glides rather nicely over the slip.
Great to see Grayson Perry collecting his CBE from the palace dressed in his “mother of the bride” outfit. He mentions that he first wore it on a transvestite bridal weekend – I do fancy going to one of those! Anyone know who organises such events? Maybe I’ll ask on http://www.Tvchix.com …
Anyway, must go – have fun!
I’m not much of a blogger am I? Been away on business for quite a while but back home now at Chez Chiffon. During my absence I was unable to access Chiffon’s Youtube account due to Google’s over-zealous security. There is no way that I will give Google my mobile phone number and I’d advise anyone else not to. Eventually we will be bombarded with advertising via our phones – the writing is on the wall. Resist!
I try to avoid Google especially as they now try to suck you into a thing called Google+ and get you to sign in to all their stuff using a single log-in. It’s all part of their plan to target you with advertising and the more info they can gather about you the better that targeting works. I’m struggling to find an alternative to Youtube at the moment but there is an excellent alternative to Google itself (the search engine) called www.duckduckgo.com. It’s good. Just remember to go into the settings and choose your default country as there are no country-specific domain versions (like “.fr”).
So… suspenders, or garter belts as they call them in the USA. I have a fixation with all ladies underwear to be honest but especially stockings and suspenders. I’m wearing a lacy suspender belt now with vintage Van Raalt stockings. The stockings are very smooth and the nylon slip I’m wearing just glides over them. Bliss! It’s winter so I’m into the long skirts now. Today I’m wearing my full length black skirt with a white satin blouse. And a jacket. The aforementioned slip is also full length and pink, which doesn’t match my red undies but what the hell? Only I will see them. Normally I do like my underwear to match. Having said that, it amazes me how many models in vintage photos wear non-matching underwear.
But suspenders come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. I’m not sure how many pairs I own but it must be about 40. One thing that I do like is to feel the rear straps stretched across my behind. A lot of suspenders have the straps too close together so you don’t get that effect. I recently acquired a black lacy suspender belt by Charnos that’s just perfect. Unusually there is no lace on the rear straps but they are seriously round the back. I have to stretch round to clip them onto the stockings but the effect is wonderful when walking about. I’m sure you can imagine!
Anyway, there have been several updates to both sites ( http://wardrobe.sultryserver.com and http://chiffontv.sultryserver.com ) since my last blog entry. Updates to Chiffon’s Boudoir are generally at the beginning of the month and a few new videos have been added to Chiffon’s Clip Store. Several nice summer dresses (with gorgeous vintage slips) have been posted at Chiffon’s Wardrobe. And I uploaded 3 new videos to Youtube. Links to all sites can be found at Chiffon’s Wardrobe.
It’s cold and foggy here in France at the moment so probably not much of an opportunity for photo taking but I do have some stuff in reserve for updates.
Chiffon’s New Suit
Firstly, many apologies for not keeping this blog up to date but you know how it is…
I bought this suit recently and rather like it. It goes well with some vintage items that I own such as the yellow blouse with the bow. I adore these blouses that have transparent sleeves. Mmm… I’m also wearing a vintage yellow Nylon slip that I’ve had for some time, and stockings (of course). These are by Hanes and super smooth and slinky. The suspender belt is also vintage and rather lovely.
So I just posted a new video of this outfit, called “Time To Suit Up!” on the clips site ( details at http://chiffontv.sultryserver.com ).
I have also added some summer dresses to the Wardrobe ( http://wardrobe.sultryserver.com ) of late as the sun came out and I managed to get some nice photos of sweet little dresses that I acquired recently. More will go up in the next few days.
The Wonderful Jo Wood
Now this is my kind of style. This was in a magazine from 2011. Oh so nice… But 55 is not exactly old!
I just posted a new update on http://wardrobe.sultryserver.com but in fact there have been others since the last blog entry. And as usual, a new video was posted on the first of the month over at http://chiffontv.sultryserver.com
Spring has kinda sprung here in France and we managed to get some nice shots in the garden of a new yellow summer dress. Unfortunately it is now raining, so…
Youtube really are a boring lot. They’ve blocked my video “Transparent Dream” which was perfectly clean! I’m very careful with Youtube videos these days and there are more revealing ones up there. Hey ho.
The real “Transparent Dream” remains available from Chiffon’s Clip Store of course and is far more interesting. The dress in the video is one that I’ve had for many years and quite extra-ordinary. A few people have asked me where I got it but the answer is the same as usual: a UK charity shop. It is a Marks and Spencer dress and I can only imagine that it was originally sold with some sort of slip as it is very see-through. I have a variety of black slips that I wear with the dress.
There have been a couple of updates since the last blog post so check out http://wardrobe.sultryserver.com and http://chiffontv.sultryserver.com for pictures and links to the DVDs and Clips.
Chiffon in a suit
I’m wearing this suit as I write this… I do love suits and recently bought another which will appear in due course.
Video updates are now taking place on the first of each month. The latest, today, is called “Chiffon in Fifties Finery” and available from Chiffon’s clip store now. This one features another “new” Fifties dress and petticoat. Rather nice.
I also updated both the Wardrobe and the Boudoir with new items. Check out “Miscellanea” for some new links and a review of the book “Fanny and Stella”.
That’s all for now…
A Nice Dress
I’m wearing the above dress as I write this. Underneath is a pale blue petticoat with vintage panties and super-smooth Hanes stockings. Mmmm…
This is to let you know that DVD CB-4 is available to buy from Chiffon’s Video Store:
