The Rising Costs of Collecting
Today's Panty Pic of the Day is a wonderful pair of Partner's brand English Lace briefs. The material is similar to Victoria's Secret English Lace that was carried a few years ago, in fact these are the copy cats of the VS brand. It's a stretchy and somewhat thick lace material made of nylon I think. Partner's is another of Mervyn's store brands. These panties have the same material front and back with a cotton liner in the gusset area. They are a lovely lavender color. I also have a bright green and powder baby blue pair which are pretty much exactly the same (I'll post pictures some other time). The style number is RN 48557. These are no longer available and were purchased in the late 90's.
I have to admit, Victoria's Secret really does have a lot of wonderful panties and keeps their styles fresh. They seem to be a leader in the lingerie field. I would buy more panties there, but they are a little too pricey. I used to go to Frederick's of Hollywood, but the last couple of times I was in there, I didn't see anything particularly innovative or sexy. I hope they hire some new designers as I would hate to see that brand go broke. VS panties are usually very well made too. The materials they use seem to be good quality and the construction is usually good as well.
I saw some really sexy panties online by a company named Spoylt. They have some really special panties in designs that I've never seen before. Unfortunately, they are extremely expensive, as in $80 to over $100 a pair! This is WAY too far out of my price category, but wow, they were very sexy. Below is an example of one of their panties. I think they have some really great stuff and am hoping to add some to my own collection someday. Their website is: http://www.spoylt.com/Common/frmHome.aspx
