Find our Knickers Nutcracker ~ you could win!

I LOVE family traditions!

Growing up we had a holiday tradition of hiding a small little soldier ornament around the house between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whoever finds him gets to hide him again (the trick is being stealth!) and then we all have a good time searching. The winner is the person who hid him last when December 25th comes along.

Want to win a $25 Knickers gift certificate?

I thought it would be fun to share this family tradition with you. Find our Knickers Nutcracker and you could win! He's hidden in one of our Christmas windows. Look high and low, and when you find him leave a comment here with his location, your name & your email. (Comments won't actually appear to protect your privacy.)

We'll draw a winner on December 24th!

Wishing you many holiday blessings, from my family to yours

The Perfect Bag for Cosmetics....and more

Have you seen our new cosmetic bags?

They're so pretty and a great size for your purse. But we love these bags for more than just cosmetics. They're great for keeping us organized in style!

I love to keep my electronic cords and attachments all together in a bag like this one. And in my car, or for traveling, it's perfect for keeping those chargers all together in one place and easy to find.

BookFest 2011 ~ featuring Leah Stewart at Knickers!

We're so excited to be welcoming Leah Stewart to Knickers for BookFest 2011 Saturday, June 18th from 10am to 1pm!

I fell completely in love with Leah's writing when I read her book The Myth of You and Me many years ago. It's a fabulous story about the sole-mate kind of friendships we have when we're younger. It's a must read for anyone
who's had that very best friend in high school and/or college, and lost touch thru the years.

Her new book, Husband and Wife has just been released in paperback. You'll love this writers ability to create characters that are real, messy and trying to figure things out just like the rest of us.

Here's a little more about Leah. I hope you'll stop by Knickers and meet this very special author. You'll also be able to purchase her books, which will come with our new Summer Reading bookmark that offers you savings on your purchases at Knickers all summer long!

* * *

Leah Stewart was born in 1973 at Laughlin Air Force Base inTexas, where her father was stationed. As a child, she lived in Virginia, Idaho, England, Kansas, and Virginia again. She went to high school in Clovis, New Mexico, a town featured in her second novel, The Myth of You and Me. She always wanted to be a writer.

At Vanderbilt University, Leah was the editor of the student newspaper, the Vanderbilt Hustler, and spent summers interning for the Tennessean in Nashville and the Commercial Appeal in Memphis. The latter experience inspired her firstnovel, Body of a Girl. After college, Leah went to the MFA program at the University of Michigan, and then moved to Boston, where she put her master’s degree to work by taking a job as asecretary for the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She had an office with a door, and she wrote most of her first novel there.

Since then, Leah has worked as a secretary at Duke, a cataloguer in a used bookstore, a magazine editor, a copyeditor, and a staff member at the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. She has been a visiting professor at Vanderbilt University, Sewanee, and Murray State University. The recipient of a 2010 NEA Literature Fellowship, Leah teaches in the University of Cincinnati’s creative writing program, and lives in Cincinnati with her husband and two children.

Hobbies, Interests & Enthusiasms...

Lately, because of my daughter taking classes, I've developed a fascination with the ballet. It's a little late for me to start, but I do take a fabulous dance/exercise class called Rhythm & Motion at the Cincinnati Ballet, where my daughter takes her classes. We also have season tickets and I've been surprised to find how much I enjoy the performances. Historically I've been so focused on language that it's been harder for me to enjoy the art forms without it (classical music, say), so the ballet is broadening my aesthetic horizons. I've interviewed one of the dancers here in hopes of including a ballerina character in my next book.

I also really, really like television. And reading blogs by very smart people who write about television, like Heather Havrilesky at Salon. I swear I'm not just zoning out on the boob tube—a season of a TV show has a lot in common narratively with a novel. Much more than a short story or even a movie.

The perfect Valentine from Cosabella

Ahhh, it's that time of year when we all fall in love...

And this year we've fallen in love with Cosabella's Satin & Lace babydoll chemise with g-string. It's perfectly alluring and delightfully seductive. And what we love most is that this light and sexy chemise has a pretty peek-a-boo lace & silk underwire bra, giving us a little support.

So if your Valentine celebration includes slipping into a little something festive, this babydoll has cupid's endorsement!

Anti-Cellulite Shaper

We're thrilled to introduce to you Wacoal's new iPant, an anti-cellulite long leg shaper! A revolutionary moment in lingerie!

The iPant shapes and sculpts as it gently releases special ingredients into your skin while you move throughout the day.

Here's the skinny on how it works. The iPant fabric is embedded with microcapsules containing caffeine to promote fat destruction; vitamin E to prevent the effects of aging; ceramides to restore and maintain the skin's smoothness; and retinol and aloe vera to moisturize and increase the firmness of the skin. Wow....all that in one shaper!

Tests have shown that after wearing the iPant as recommended, women reported improved appearance, a reduction in thigh measurement, and that their clothes felt less tight after 28 days.

Start wearing your new iPant now and show off your shapely results at Spring Break!

Seduce Me Gown

The Seduce Me gown is part of our new Carole Hochman Midnight collection that's just arrived and we love it for so many reasons.

We love the seductive elegance to this gown. The fabric is so soft, drapes nicely on the body. The soft gathered lace straps continue over the shoulder to create a soft lace across the back. The ruching in the bust is supportive and figure flattering. And it's easy care.

This is a perfect gown for everyday, and packs nicely for a romantic weekend get-away.
