Hello Readers! Well, I can't believe it, but it's already time to wrap up another year. This year, the Badside has yet again posted more times than the year before (not sure if that will be repeated next year). I'm glad to have this little space to write about a passion of mine that is for the most part secret and hidden from the world around me and I'm happy for the many wonderful and interesting people I've met through blogging. I have many more posts floating around in my head and lots of lingerie to review, so hopefully that's something you guys will stick around for in the coming year. Tonight it's party time, so go and put on something sexy and have some fun! Happy New Year Everyone!

Amto Readers! How was Christmas? Did Santa bring you anything naughty?! Maybe you just weren't bad enough this year. You'll have to try and be a lot naughtier! Well, if you didn't get exactly what you wanted, perhaps you can go and find few things at the Playboy Store. They're offering 20 percent off orders of $100 or more now until the 31st. Pictured above are two items that caught my eye on that site. I'm sure with those in your lingerie collection, you'll have no problem being very very bad!

Howka Readers! It's getting down to only a few shopping days before Christmas. Luckily, I have zero friends, so I needn't buy anything for anyone! LOL, J/K! ;^) Actually, I usually shop early and this year have finished ahead of the curve again. Good thing, as I passed several malls on the way home today, the cars were lined up to get into the lots, ugh!
One bad side effect of finishing your shopping early is that you tend to start buying things for yourself. I treated myself to the above garter belt from VS recently. I figured I deserved it (actually I probably deserve a lump of coal, but that's another story), so I went for it. I have quite a few garter belts, they turn me on immensely for some reason. I try to buy them only if they are different in a significant way from any of the others I might already have in my collection. I knew I had to have these the second I saw them. I just love the wide straps and lace adornments. The pretty flower lace material is very nice, heavy and slightly stretchy and the gold colored clasps are a heavy weight metal of some sort. The stocking straps have a very cute frill to them on the edges, an added touch I appreciate. I'm not sure if the heavy metal is a good thing or not. I noticed panties tend to get caught on them and they get unclasped a little too easily. It does have a very nice double row hook at the waist clasp with three size adjustments if I remember right. Oh and the stocking tabs are smooth metal with soft rubbery button backings. All in all, I'd definitely recommend these to any of you who might be looking for a slightly unique looking vintage style garter belt, very glamorous and sexy!
PS: They were on sale for $17, which probably means they'll be gone forever from the store soon, so if ya wants 'em, better get a move on.

Nuedi Readers! I was watching Last Call with Carson Daily the other night and he had an interview with Dita Von Teese (pictured above to get you in the holiday spirit). They seemed to know each other from before, judging by the conversation. She is a fascinating person who really seems to enjoy what she does (burlesque). She was mainly promoting her new book, "Dita: Stripteese" which is out now (Amazon has it). I really like the format of the book, which is in fact three tiny flip books. She said that the idea for the format belonged to photographer Sheryl Nields and explained that the tiny flip book was used in the past so that people could hide them easily, an interesting fact. She also mentioned that she is friends with Lady Gaga and that she ran into her in Paris where they dined together. Lady Gaga was wearing nothing but a latex panty and bra set! She said that Lady Gaga doesn't do things like that for attention or notoriety, but because like herself, she just enjoys dressing that way. I always got the same vibe from her as well from what I've seen through the media, which is why I think she's so terrific. I think society kind of celebrates those of us who are brave enough to not care what the rest think, but usually only after the person has been through the ringers.

Hatujambo Readers! I have a bit of good news for lingerie lovers; it seems that women in London are hitting the clothes racks looking for lingerie to wear out to the clubs at night. I can only hope this trend continues to grow and spread across the globe like wild fire! Here's a link to the original article. Pictured above is the lovely Petra Nemcova, perhaps ready for a night out on the town? I do wonder if there could ever be such a thing as too much lingerie? Would it have a kind of reverse effect where the sight of sexy female curves in frilly lingerie becomes not such an exciting thing to see? Could lingerie overload happen? Nah! ;^)

Kandaisen Readers! How was your weekend? How about some savings to cheer you up? The good folks at Trashy Lingerie are having a corset sale, if you happen to be into that. Haven't heard of Trashy? They're a smaller boutique located in El Lay on Melrose. If you're in the area and are a lingerie fanatic like me, then you should definitely drop by for a look. Anyway, lots of celebs like to wear their stuff, people like the lovely Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson and Mariah Carey (name droppin') to name a few. Take a look, maybe you'll find something you like!

Kayira Be Readers! Week's end friends! I think the holiday season is officially in high gear now. I've got a few dinners and such events going on from now til the end of the month. I try to avoid the malls usually at this time of year, preferring to shop online and sidestep the crowds. I have noticed though, that the crowds did not appear this year at the mall. I'm sure they'll be there as the days get fewer toward Christmas, but the last few weeks haven't been too bad on the occasions when I've dared go shopping. I bought the above garter skirt at VS on sale. I forget the exact price, but it was low enough that I couldn't pass it up. It's pretty nice, but the sizing could have been a little better as I think it only came in two sizes to fit all. Whoever thought of "One Size Fits All" should lose their job, because one size does NOT fit all EVER! Anyway, this item does fit OK if not perfect and the overall quality is very nice. The garter straps are removable as well, a nice feature.

Kasa Kaayh Readers! How is your week going? I know, I know, the holidays can be so hectic. All the more that you should blow off some steam and find something to distract your mind for a few minutes, right? In that spirit, running on a tangent one day while surfing the intra-nets, I came across this cute little video file entitled Co-Ed Secrets Stag Film. Have I piqued your curiosity? If so, have a look at the following link.
PS: The above pic of Kate Mara is NOT from the film.

Ia Orana Readers! How was your weekend? Did you do any shopping? I've been doing a bit of shopping online myself and ended up ordering a few items from VS when they had the 20 percent off sale a little while ago. The odd thing was, when I entered the discount code, it never accepted it. I thought maybe it would subtract the discount at the end, so I went ahead and put the order through, but it never did give me the 20 percent off. I called in a little later (experience tells me it takes 30 minutes to an hour for your internet orders to register with the customer service people) and a nice lady helped me out and corrected the problem quickly. Anyway, I'll let you know how it all turns out when the items get here. I won't say what I ordered yet, but you can be sure I'll post some pics soon enough. For now, why not enjoy the above pic of an Ambrielle Baby Doll from JCP's.

Bon Dia Readers! A quick post fr you today. I found the stockings pictured above on sale at VS for $4.99, normally 15. A great price! The item number is: EO-214-438, just paste it into the search bar at the VS site and they should pop right up. I don't own any VS stockings, so I can't tell you about the overall quality. I can tell you that I was pretty blown away the first time I felt a really good pair of stockings though. They were SO smooth and had a kind of thickness to them, very firm pull to the fabric. Anyway, my point being that it's worth it to spend a little more if you can and get the nicer stuff.

Shlomo Readers! How is your week going? Did you watch the VS show the other night. I only got a chance to see the first half, but I'm planning to watch the rest later. To me it didn't seem to be as good as last year's, although I'll hold off final judgment until I 've seen the whole shebangy. I noticed there was one shot where they actually blurred out someone's butt cheek. I don't understand why people complain about semi nudity on TV at 10 o'clock when they can see a realistic murder at 8. Which is worse? If you don't like it, TURN THE CHANNEL...HELLO! I read somewhere that the VS show brings in some of the highest ratings, but also the most complaints. OK, enough of that, help me down off my soapbox.
Pictured above is a super cute panty, that just happens to be on sale right now as you read this. Where, you ask? JC Penny has them (I think it's there own brand) for $8.40 each when you buy two, otherwise it's gonna cost you 12 bucks a pop. Go for the two fer and get one in begonia pink (above) and a black one. Go on, you know you want to!
