Sexy Summer

 

 

Summer is right around the corner and that means being able to pass off your sexy lingerie as a cute outfit idea! It just takes the right style to make a sexy statement!

 

 

If you didn’t know you could wear your beautiful underpinnings as the main focal point of your outfit, and actually get away with it, then you are about to be pleasantly and fashionably shocked. Here are some great ideas that will make your summer sizzle.

Classic Bra

 

 

 

 

 

Be as casual or as fancy as you want with no regrets. It’s the most freeing feeling! Take that stunning bra out of your delicates drawer. You know the one I’m talking about; the one you thought you could only wear for intimate eyes only. Well, it’s time to match it up with some cute jeans or cut off shorts for a more casual look or a flawless pin skirt for a fancy night out. The choice is yours.

Sports Bra

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, believe me, I get it. You’re more of a work-out kinda woman. There are just as many options. Yes, even a fancier style. Still, use that sexy bra, but pair it with a scandalous pair of sports shorts and heels for that perfect sporty-chic look. Don’t be afraid to wear your full workout gear from head to toe as your sexy statement so you can show off that body and how you got it.

Lace Bralettes and Crops

 

 

 

 

Lace is elegant, bralettes are comfortable and corset style crops are to die for. Whether you pair it with a classic skirt or even a ripped up pair of jeans you will always stand out for your exquisite sense of fashion and look the best of the best so effortlessly. Make sure to complete this timeless and trendy look with the perfect jacket for when the night gets just a bit chilly. Although if the night goes right you won’t need it.

Satin Corset Crop

 

 

 

 

 

Well, lace may be elegant, but satin feels so very luxurious. This is one of my favorites when spicing up a summer outfit. Its durability makes for long nights of partying the night away and always feeling secure in your garment. The vibrant colors and fearless prints are endless and so is the confidence it gives you. And of course, its ability to go from casual to chic just by changing one item is what truly makes this look magnificent.

dec_border

 

Corsets

 

 

 

 

 

Corsets only favor the brave. Do you have what it takes to wear this literally breath-taking garment with every style? Guaranteed you will always look flawless and stop everyone dead in their tracks. Make it delicate or sporty. Make it rock and roller or fantasy princess but always make this ancient lingerie your own. So take a deep breath and let the corset do the rest of the seducing.

dec_border

 

Bodysuits

 

 

 

 

 

Bodysuits are beyond beautiful! This garment’s crowning achievement is its match of form and function with a simple and sophisticated result every time, no matter how low key you’ve styled yourself. Feel as flexible and as delicate as a ballerina all while taking over the world one fabulous day at a time. For a flare of the dramatic go for a sheer style adorned with the most glitz, you can ever desire. This look will make you the showstopper you always had deep in you.

dec_border

 

Slip Dresses

 

 

 

 

 

The final idea that is the top trend right now and going forward into the summer is the silky, sensational, versatile and the always the most comfortable way to fancy up even the most casual of styles. The slip dress! It isn’t just for wearing under your dresses and skirts to prevent clinging. Now it’s the sleekest way to be comfortable without sacrificing even an inch of chic. How can one make this look even grander? By pairing it with fur! Faux or fine you will never cease to amaze everyone with your timeless charm. The longer the better for a more vintage magnificence. Feel as all eyes are on you, you glamorous bombshell!

dec_border

 

 

 

Today’s forward fashions have freed us from the constraints of normality. We don’t have to be incredibly modest and we don’t have to burn the bras in protest. We can have a middle ground too. The best way to make that happen is by showing everyone what these undergarments are for; they are for whatever we feel good in. They are to make us feel beautiful for ourselves, not just our special someone in private. Remember, no matter what, you are ALWAYS that special someone above ALL others.

Your personality comes first in your fashion. Make sure whatever style you choose is as unforgettable as you are.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome women holding the world together!

And this post is dedicated to my favorite thing to wear on this special day: PJs!

I myself am a mother and love to celebrate the day I became someone’s entire world. The way I like to celebrate it is not necessarily by going out, but instead staying in and getting into the comfiest pajamas I possibly can. Here are some of my favorite looks for my favorite day!

dec_border

 

Lingerie Robes

 

 

 

 

I know I am not the only woman in the world who loves a good robe and wears it as often as possible. No matter what you wear underneath or the material of robe it always brings extra comfort to an already enjoyable outfit.

dec_border

 

Mix and Match Separates

 

 

 

 

Not only is this the coziest it is also the most fun. You can mix and match styles and colors and you can even have quirky messages on the PJs. It’s the best day to have a blast and express the ‘you’ your kid loves, no matter what.

dec_border

 

Pajama Shorts

 

 

 

 

Whether you mix and match or have the perfect set, PJ shorts are breathable for those warmer mother’s days and always comfortable. Bring a touch of elegance to lounging around the house by choosing a satin set.

dec_border

 

Classic 2 Piece Pajama Set

 

 

 

 

These classic styles are not just for men anymore. We ladies have taken it over and then some. There are even some prints you can wear out and about with a pair of gorgeous heels and fun belt because being lazy can be very chic.

dec_border

 

Cotton Dress

 

 

 

 

The best way to be the most casual is a nice long cotton PJ dress. Lay around with ease. Have breakfast in bed brought to you. Maybe even sleep in just a little bit longer before your special Mother’s Day Brunch.

dec_border

 

Satin Dress

 

 

 

 

Or maybe, just maybe, you two got rid of the kids and want to celebrate with Netflix and chill. Or if you’re like me you are taking advantage of a childless night with good old fashioned sexy time. And we all know sexy time is more fun with a silky lingerie dress. Well, even if you decide to mix the two together you’ll be comfortable and sexy always.

dec_border

 

 

No matter what you decide to wear it is all about you and what makes you happy. so go ahead, put it on, be nice and cozy, and enjoy your Mother’s Day.

The Beautiful Bra

 

 

We concentrated on the ‘bottom’ now let’s go up to the ‘top’! BRAS! Though not every man is a breast guy, no man can resist a sexy bra. Matching it with your personality gives the girls a fun boost!

 

 

 

Breasts are a cherished symbol of femininity not only to men but to women as well. I mean, they are on our bodies. It feels good when the ladies look fabulous and the right bra always does the trick. You can be as sporty or demure and as bold or provocative as you wish. Shining your personality though, that’s what it’s all about! The choices in style, color and fabrics are endless!

 

You have your bottoms covered.

Now let’s find the perfect bra for your personality!

dec_border

 

Classic Lace

 

 

Lace harkens back to a sweeter feeling but stirs sensuality all the same. The classic fabric is, by far, the most versatile. Most lingerie is either entirely made of or trimmed with lace. The designs one could make with it are never-ending.

 

Sheer Lace

\

 

 

Sexy and simple, but always elegant. Sometimes it’s okay not to leave much to the imagination.

 

Exposed Lace

 

To show more is even sexier and even more jaw-dropping. Plunge as deep as your vixen side tells you.

dec_border

 

Now let’s check out different styles often done in lace, but can be done in different materials such as velvet, satin and cotton.

 

Bralettes

 

 

 

 

Bralettes are the best for its absolute wearability. You can be in the boudoir or out on the town with a simple jacket, the right location and the perfect someone.

dec_border

 

Floral

 

 

 

Floral prints bring a natural sense of confidence with its bright colors. You can be classic or bold with the design and fabrics and mix and match the panty color to coordinate with the many hues of the flowers.

dec_border

 

Let’s Be Wild! I love to throw in something random and exciting.

In my opinion, the boldest statement would be…

 

Feathers

 

 

Have the most fun you can with your look! This is just a peek into what my personality would be. Feathers are a show stopper; theatrical and dramatic! Even if it’s just a touch on the trim the emotions that come from it are the same.

dec_border

 

Now, talk about sexy! These bras are so amazing. But now we’ll look at a darker more complex side.

 

Leather

 

 

 

 

It is commonly seen as fetish lingerie but it is so much more. just like a bralette, it can be worn in the bedroom and out and about, with some creative styling of course. It adds a dark feel to your chic venere.

dec_border

 

Straps

 

 

 

 

This very daring and complex design is equally as versatile in wearability and equally as dark and mysterious as the feeling leather provokes.

dec_border

 

Leather isn’t the only way to show your dark side. But maybe that dark side has a little bit more of a fighter. The only way to show this side of you is…

 

Chain

 

 

 

 

Yes, like leather, chains are popular in the fetish community, but it also brings a warrior princess vibe to the look, which is so empowering either way. It is often lightweight and exposes all the right parts of your goddess body.

dec_border

 

Let’s throw in some sporty comfort. Yes, sporty is sexy and comfortable is always preferable.

 

 

Sport

 

 

 

Renown designers have really gone above and beyond in the science of the sports bra. They are as fashionable as they are functional. They can also come in vibrant prints and colors of all kinds and are extremely flattering on every body type.

dec_border

 

Now we should take a look back at another classic…

 

Satin

Besides lace, satin is the most used fabric in creating lingerie. It can come in any color and any print. Satin is also stronger than lace and can serve as an amazing foundation for adding embellishments to the bra.

dec_border

 

What kind of embellishments, you ask?

 

Rhinestones and Studs

 

Rhinestones and studs are the definitions of complex, but the glitz and glamour are vivacious and spectacular. Turn into a showgirl for your sexy moment and let your beauty shine as stunning as your gems.

dec_border

 

Another amazing embellishment to add elegance and grace to your brassiere…

 

Pearls

 

 

 

Pearls are truly exquisite and add a certain softness to the body. With the proper foundation, you can put as many pearls as you want! Thankfully pearls are delicate enough to be sewn onto lace and other thinner fabrics.

dec_border

 

 

When choosing your perfect bra, always remember; it’s about you and ONLY YOU. You are the only one who knows what the girls look good in. Make em look sexy!

dec_border

Whatever your personality, there’s a bra for that!

What To Wear Wednesday | Los Gatos San Jose Boudoir Photography

 

The Perfect Panty

 

 

  With so many different wardrobe choices for a boudoir shoot, it could be a bit overwhelming. To help you make the best decision we’ll focus on one attribute at a time.

dec_border

 

 

It’s all about showing off your best assets and being comfortable in your own skin. The particular asset we are showing off today is the posterior and the beautiful panties that could go on it. Yes, there are still so many choices, but at least all we have to worry about is that terrific tush!

There is a panty for every personality; let’s find yours.

dec_border

 

Lace Up Panties

 

Weather they lace from the front or the back, this ethereal design is always flattering and flirty with a breath of elegance. It comes in an unending array of colors, styles, and fabrics.

dec_border

 

Sporty Panties

 

Cozy and casual can be sexy and seductive. Sporty styles not only give you unbelievable comfort, but it also lifts you in the most flattering places. It makes you feel as flexible as an acrobat and most importantly it will make you feel free and at ease, while doing killer poses.

dec_border

 

Strappy Panties

 

 

 

Going with a strappy design shows how bold you can be with your sexual heat. Its intricate style is often times the most visually intimate and favorable to almost every figure.

dec_border

 

High Waist Panties

 

 

 

High waisted styles are so versatile and comfortable without sacrificing elegance. Designs range from a vivacious vintage to a marvelous modern and shows as much or as little as you want.

dec_border

 

Floral Print Panties

 

Floral Panties are delicate and exquisite. They bring a very natural essence to your derriere and can be as sophisticated or as simple as you want. It wears well with a lace trim to accent its beauty. Fabrics and cuts are quite variable, but the elegance is always the same.

dec_border

 

Fantasy Panties

 

 

 

This is the wow factor! The fantasy would come true with a lovely string of pearls, a salacious peekaboo or a revealing chain ensemble. Whichever is chosen, each is unique and the most provocative of statements.

dec_border

 

Funtime Panties

 

Sometimes it’s fun to leave the elegance at the door and have a little fun with your panties. Bring out that good humor, inner geek or even just the downright naughty side of you.

dec_border

 

Animal Inspired Panties

 

 

 

Though leopard is a true classic when it comes to animal inspired panties, there are other creatures in this world and that means there are many creations that these animals have influenced such as feathers and fur. Or go outside the box with peacock print instead. The choices are numerous and all gorgeous!

dec_border

 

Classic Garter Style Panties

 

It’s always best to end with a classic. The timeless enchantment this garment elicits is undeniable. It accentuates every curve, flatters every figure, and truly drips sex and sophistication. The style will never die for exactly these reasons.

dec_border

 

Final Touch

 

 

Whatever style you choose to accentuate your asset, keep it true to you. No matter the personality, there’s a panty for that.

Fairytale Boudoir | Los Gatos San Francisco Bay Area Photograpghy

Disney has embraced the look and feel of innocence for the younger demographic, as it should. When you are a child you look at a princess through your eyes. No one else’s eyes will do. But I must confess, and I know I am not alone in saying this, I am still a huge fan of all the Disney Princesses, Villains, movies, various characters, ect.. But I look at them through different eyes now; adult eyes. Yes, that makes me look at their outfits and mannerisms a bit different. I mean, come on, Pocahontas or Ariel of the Little Mermaid! And I am definitely not the only one who has envisioned what these beautiful princesses would wear for princes in the boudoir.

dec_border

 

 

These fantastic drawings of just that vision are represented here by an artist from Mexico named Biaani (https://biaani.deviantart.com/). Her concept is exactly what I always think when I watch a Disney movie. With these images, many young ladies give you their take on a sexy Disney Princess look, all while using Biaani’s work to inspire them. Let’s start from where it all began.

dec_border

Once Upon a Time…

Snow White goes down in history as the first Disney Princess ever! Her voice is lilting and innocent. She created the mold of the Disney Princess standard. So I can see why the artist used a more gothic tone. With evil lurking in every corner in any disguise who wouldn’t have a little touch of darkness show through. With a look like this, she will need to be the one to kiss life back into her Prince.

dec_border

 

 

Cinderella’s image is undeniable and virtually unchangeable. Everyone has even the same color blue in their mind when hearing the name Cinderella. The artist kept to the very classic feel of the legendary princess as well as the featured lingerie. It’s a timeless image loved by all. Prince Charming couldn’t help but be charmed by this.

dec_border

 

 

Aurora was a beauty like no other princess. She had a poise and grace and slept for 100 years without aging lol. In the movie, she wore two very distinct colors: pink and sky blue. Everyone has their favorite color she wore. Flora and Merryweather even fought over it. But here the artist and I have something in common, we both love her in the pink. I absolutely believe she would wear pink when she wants alone time with Prince Phillip.

dec_border

Ariel is the princess of the ocean and her personality and style flow so freely and can’t be contained. In fact, she was the first Disney Princess to show as much skin as she did which was a direct reflection of her uncontainable spirit. I think the artist captured that perfectly. Prince Eric would never again fall under Ursula’s or anyone else’s spell with such an exquisite lingerie choice.

dec_border

Belle is a character with as much beauty as brains and makes a beastly prince see the true meaning of goodness with feisty persistence. Such a princess exudes strength no matter what, and the artist pictures this incredibly. Though she had other outfits she wore, her most iconic was her gold ball gown. It captured her essence, and so too does the choice of lingerie pictured here.

dec_border

 

Jasmine is one of the sexiest princesses of all time. All of her outfits were so very seductive and exotic, being that she was from Persia. Her personality was as bold and exciting as her style and her undying loyalty makes her that much sexier. Above all, it seems the artist got into my head once again! I can only picture an out of this world belly dancing outfit. It’s the perfect look for all her qualities.

dec_border

Pocahontas is not only represented as a fearless native princess who fell deeply in love with John Smith in spite of his differences, she is also the first Disney Princess to be based on a true historical figure (though this story is much different in real life). She is the first Disney Princess of the Americas. I thank the artists especially for creating such an astonishing image that represents her natural spirit. You can almost see the colors of the wind blowing through her hair.

dec_border

Tiana is an inspiration! She is the first African American Disney Princess, she is the first to own her very own business, and was the second Dinsey Princess set in America ( In New Orleans no less!!) She is exciting, She is independent, she is vivacious, and everything about that screams sexy! The artist did a great job creating exactly that. And the young lady who chose the lingerie inspired by Tiana did a phenomenal job embracing the spirit of New Orleans.

dec_border

Rapunzel is a young woman trapped by an evil witch, but nothing will stop her from breaking free. With her trusty hair and her hunky savior, Flynn Rider, she escapes peril and lives as happily ever after as all the rest of them. I can imagine her looking exactly like the artist has depicted when her and Flynn got their own tower, with a touch of regal purple, soft lavenders, long flowing tresses as golden as the sun.

dec_border

Merida became an absolute favorite of mine among the Disney Princesses because she saved everyone with her bow and arrow, her witts, and absolutely no Prince Charming needed, ever. In fact, she is the first Disney Princess never to marry. I envision her being as provocative as she wants in her private intimacies with no cares about what anyone thinks. that is why the artist has inspired me. She so effortlessly depicts these traits in her art.

dec_border

The newest Disney Princess is Anna. She is quirky and daring. She is impetuous and stubborn. She is everything a young girl is. And she has a sister who is as cold as ice but loves her all the same. Anna is soft and kind and finds her charming Kristoff while saving the kingdom and her sister. Her portrait and choice of lingerie is a definite reflection of her adventurous restless spirit and cold surroundings.

dec_border

Last, but certainly not least, we have Queen Elsa. Yes, the only Disney Princess to become a Queen in her own right and the first to have magical powers. She is also seen as more of a villain in the beginning, which is a first for Disney. She is misunderstood, isolated and temperamental. She is also fiercely loyal and strong-willed and develops the ability to rule an entire kingdom. This artist is truly talented at being able to embrace these very awesome qualities in a stunning, and especially sexy way.

And they all lived happily ever after!

dec_border

These princesses have inspired so many girls and women alike and are held in their hearts forever. Even as we see them through a more provocative light then we are used to it does not sour them for us. It endears them to us and makes them grow with us. It helps us to choose what we would like to wear for our Prince Charming. I thank Biaani for sharing the same vision as many of us and inspiring many young ladies to choose these fantastic lingerie inspiration based on her art. It’s truly amazing.

What To Wear Wednesday | San Jose Monterey Bay Area Boudoir Photography

 

It’s Spring Fling Time! You already have the perfect outfit for your date picked out, but what are you going to wear to when you invite your date home and slip into something sexier? These spring collections are the perfect ideas to end your date perfectly!

 

dec_border

 

I love to start with something simple that you can wear under almost any outfit you decide to wear for your date; the bra and panty sets. You can choose your color and style based on your outfit, personality, and so much more. The possibilities are endless. Considering there are so many great choices the best advice for choosing the perfect set is to just think fun and colorful for spring. Think simple, but go sexy.

 

 

 

dec_border

 

Another classic and easy garment is the chemise. You can wear this under certain outfits to act as a slip, you can use it as a seductive dress with a glamorous coat, or just simply excuse yourself and slide into a lustful look. No matter the color, style, or material with a chemise you can never go wrong. Keep in mind, the softer the better. He will not stop touching every accentuated curve.

 

 

dec_border

 

And then, of course, you want nothing more than to wrap yourself in the one piece that completes every lingerie set; the boudoir robe. Though they come in all colors and materials the classical favorite is silk or satin. Mix and match colors for a more fun and freeing feel. You can make it the simplest look of all; go into your dressing area a slip only the robe on. You’ll marvel at how your style makes him melt.

 

 

 

 

dec_border

 

Spring is a time to fling care in the air and make every moment colorful and memorable. Don’t just end the date with the kiss good night. End with the feeling that you are perfect in every way and there’s nothing wrong with showing it! So go ahead, slip into something more “comfortable” and show it off! Wink Wink!
