The month of October brings us a lot of new things, like change in the weather with the fall season which gives us a change in the fashion.
Fall brings a change in the weather so our clothing options have to accompny it, but there is one day, or weekend depending on how much you want to celebrate, in the month of October that no matter the tempeture outside women dress to impress: October 31, Halloween!
The movie Mean Girls has brought one of the best quotes that sums up how Halloween costumes go for women, ‘Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.’
The always-inventive lingerie powerhouse has just released a line of erotic lingerie costumes called Sexy Little Fantasies. Ironically, youâ€™ll find the collection in the Victoriaâ€™s Secret online store under â€śSleep and Loungeâ€ť â€” but youâ€™ll be doing little of either in these get-ups.
Although I’m not too sure if these are supposed to be worn outside of the bedroom, I commend any woman that can pull one of these off in public. If you plan on being the sexiest woman out on Halloween you will need to make sure you are rocking one of these outfits!
The series includes 12 outfits perfect for role-playing fun or perhaps even an adult Halloween party a deux? The pieces have the same quality and design standards weâ€™ve come to expect from Victoriaâ€™s Secret, but thereâ€™s nothing original about the costume choices themselves.
Choose from such standard male-fantasy archetypes as the Sexy Little French Maid, Sexy Little Sailor, SL Nurse, SL Ballerina, etc. Viewed as a whole, the collection looks like a deck of playing cards for 12-year-old boys. The full series, modeled by a postively bursting-at-the-bustline Candice Swanepoel, is shown above.
A couple of oddities in the Sexy Little Fantasies line raise some questions, though. First, the Sexy Little Angel â€” wings, halo and all â€” seems to be a spin on the iconic Victoriaâ€™s Secret Angels modelling crew. Think about this: do you want your BF fantasizing about Adriana Lima et. al when heâ€™s with you???
And second, the Sexy Little Bride outfit has me puzzled. This is not erotic bridal wear, but a costume for women pretending to be a bride in order to arouse their playmate. Again, just tell the BF to buy the cow instead. The costumes cost as little as $68 for the SL Cowgirl and up to $298 for the SL Angel. I guess heaven ainâ€™t cheap, even in the bedroom.
Altogether, the attention-grabbing Fantasies collection is amusing â€” and a little unnerving. Victoriaâ€™s Secret, which makes its bread and butter selling undies to your kid sister, is venturing ever-so-slightly across the line into the world of trashy erotic stripper costumes, the sort of thing you find in adult toy stores where you can find racy pirate costumes or sexy Little Mermaid outfits. One has to wonder where theyâ€™ll go next.
Finally a word about sizing. They donâ€™t call these sexy â€ślittleâ€ť fantasies for nothing. Almost every costume in the collection is available in only a very limited number of sizes â€” no A cups, nothing above a 36, etc etc. Thereâ€™s no excuse for this from a mass-market retailer these days, so write your congressman â€” or your favorite VS Angel â€” to complain.
