Apa Khabar readers! How are you all doing today? Did you know that the word gingham is derived from the Malay language? The Malay word is ging-gang, which means striped. Interesting, no?
As most of the long time readers around here know, I really have a hard time resisting the purchase of lingerie when I spot something especially nice. I've been doing pretty well in holding off lately, although I do break down now and again in moments of weakness. Pistured abouve is one item recently obtained in just such a moment. It's a VS garter belt with mathcing panty and bra set. I only bought the garter belt, but thinking back maybe I should have got the whole set.
I really like this garter belt a lot. It's a nice shade of pink with cute green accents. The green is a surprisingly bright shade, but somehow it really works with the softer pink, kudos to the design team that picked those colors. The stripes are flowery with a sheer fabric between them. On the front there is a wonderful ruffled edge at the bottom center and a cute green bow at the center waistband. Not really apparent in the picture is the green piping around the top of the waistband and bottom edge with a cute eyelet lacy edge. The back tapers down to a narrow strap with one metal hook on it. Generally I like there to be a double hook on my garter belts, but this one is fine and seems to be holding up well. The stocking clasps are metal also, another good feature that I look for in a quality garter belt.
I actually found this on sale, so I doubt if you will be able to get your hands on one, but if you do, I can recommend you buy it for yourself. It's very cute and I found that it was a lot nicer in person than it looks in pictures.
