Rago High Waist Briefs

 Rago makes a number of different styles of high waist briefs. In the firm control category we have their  Shapette and Lacette lines, including styles 6101, 6107 and 6109. These shapers will provide more pronounced shaping as compared to the popular hosiery-based shapewear. At the same time, you’ll generally  get a smoother look under tighter-fitting clothing as compared to a waist cincher. The Shapette line is distinguished from the Lacette line by the sheer powernet fabric. The Lacette has a jacquard fabric. Both lines have Rago’s “power circle” shaping bands. The Shapette 6101 is a side zip – handy if you struggle to wiggle into one of these girdles. Detachable garters are included, giving you some extra options when wearing hosiery.

Daily Bread Revisited

One of our faithful readers and customers has now tried the Sullivan Street Bakery bread recipe twice -- in a wood stove with bison chips and a 19th century Colorado soddy no less! It turned out great and he sent photos -- totally cool! I am so thrilled  Abuelo John tried it -- now Abuelo, we will have to start improvising with add-ins (nuts, raisins, dates, olives, etc.) and various flours perhaps? Or how about pizza, focaccia and more? I would love to have a wood-fired oven in my yard (or the neighborhood at least).

Fashion Hosiery

One of the most economical ways to dress up an outfit is through your legwear. There are many choices, from sheer pantyhose, to back seam stockings, to footless tights, to ribbed tights. So many choices, so much impact, so little cost! We have added several new styles recently and will be adding many more over the course of the next few months.

Buon Giorno

So just got off skype with my girl who's in Rome for the semester -- for orientation the school showed the kids a You Tube video of Italy and Europe -- it was pretty cute and accurate from what I've read of Italy. In local news, we are going to have to start bringing in a few of our outdoor items and drop our storm windows soon -- because, yes, it looks like Earl is going to hurl straight at us.
