Sizzling Steampunk

It’s October, so that means it’s time for Halloween! There’s still time to choose what you want to wear to the party of the year. But this blog is about what to wear after the party when you want to do some trick or treating in the boudoir. One of my favorite ideas is SteamPunk!! What’s steampunk you ask?

dec_border

 

Steampunk is a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction. In other words, it is the most badass costume idea since the Gothic Vampire. From head to toe, you are transformed into a fine Industrial Lady with a bit of battle in her and a lot of elegance from a very different era. Here are some of the most exceptional examples of this timeless and daring fashion choice.dec_border

Hats/Head Dresses

Mask/Goggles

Fans/Parasols

dec_border

Lingerie/Bolero

dec_border

Corsets/Intricate Bodices

dec_border

Skirts/Garters/Stockings

Shoes/Boots

Halloween is about being the most unique character and having fun doing it. It doesn’t always have to be spooky or gory. It can be leather clad, metal trimmed, doused in lovely lace, and uniquely mechanical.

 

So if you decide on this lively vintage look you will be the invention of a science fiction dream. No matter where the party takes you to have a safe trick or treat

(adult style, wink wink)!

The F Words of Fall Fashion Friday | San Jose Boudoir Photography

dec_border

FALL IS FINALLY HERE!! I know I’m not the only one excited about unpacking all my fall fashions. With all the right boots, jackets, furs, hats, dresses, and scarves you are set for a fantastic season. But today I have something better in mind. What better way to start than what goes underneath all the wardrobe and what comes out in the boudoir.

 

 

 

For this Fashion Friday Fall edition, we will be exploring the F’s of this fun season. They’re colors, fabrics, emotions, and nature. Each individual word holds a special meaning to everyone and evokes different images. These are the images and thoughts that come to my mind.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

Fuschia is the hottest fall color this year and for all the right reasons. It’s colorful and vibrant with a bold attitude all its own. Though it is a risky color it is worth how it makes every one of your features the center of your lover’s world. Whether head to toe or just a dash, it’s a color that brings out a passion other colors forgot even existed.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Floral patterns are not exclusive to flowers or even a warmer season. It is the natural beauty falling delicately from the trees after the emerald leaves have become golden. It is the lone blossom which refuses the autumn change. Let the deeper more enchanting hues inspire your best self. Let that spirit guide you when you choose the perfect floral lingerie for the boudoir.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You have an inner sexy that sores above any woman you know. There are many materials to express this part of you, but feathers are always best. Feathers are an erotic gesture meant to tickle the fancy and always leave them wanting more. So feel free as a bird to wear a simple trim or all over the body. No matter the amount the allure is unchanged.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

 

Fierce is the feeling you get when you know you’re in control. It’s the pussycat in you aching to let the leopard come out and play. Knowing the sound of the leather stretching on your body as you bend him to you makes him break a sweat. This is a powerful word that requires a powerful outfit matched with a fearless attitude.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And leather is not the only way to evoke that inner rocker chick. Fishnet is my favorite fabric for the fiercest look. The eyes go wild with how very revealing it is. The texture is sensual, like fur it provokes a similar sensation. Comfort is always guaranteed as it moves with every twist. Feel vulnerable, unstoppable and just a little nasty all at the same time.

dec_border

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fantasy comes in many forms. It comes in whatever form your heart desires most. For your lover, you can be a superhero, a belly dancer commanded by the king, a warrior princess, or even a brocade beauty waiting ready for her Lord. It is all about the character it brings out in you, for in a fantasy you are never yourself but always out of this world. Use that when you find an outfit that brings out the unreal you.

dec_border

 

Of course, I must end the best with the last. Savage X by FENTY!! The newest, absolutely hottest must-have lingerie brand of Fall 2018 by singer, actress, makeup and fashion mogul Rhianna Fenty!! My girl RiRi is on FIRE!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These looks undoubtedly encompass all the F Words of Fall Fashion! These masterfully designed works of art from Fenty closed off New York Fashion Week a month ago and are still the unending talk of the world. The collection represents every woman, every curve, every color, and every unique attribute that makes a woman everything she desires in herself.

dec_border

 

 

 

No matter the word chosen, make sure to embody it. Who cares what it means to everyone else. It only matters what it means to you because you are the only you who knows your desires. Have a splendid equinox filled with fun.

Celebrating Burlesque | Los Gatos San Francisco Bay Area Photography

Gypsy Rose Lee and Dita Von Teese: Fabulous Forces of Burlesque

 

 

 

I have always loved the art of Burlesque and how it titillates the senses. And when the word Burlesque is said, two very prominent names come to mind; Gypsy Rose Lee and Dita Von Teese! These fabulous women are known for their wit, their beauty, and most importantly their style.

 

 

dec_border

Rose Louise Hovick, better known as Gypsy Rose Lee, joined the ranks of burlesque after a grueling childhood career in vaudeville with her talented siblings and her controlling stage mother, Mama Rose. Burlesque was her way of breaking from her past and embrace a form of entertainment that really brought her true essence to life. She also changed it in ways one would never imagine with her sharp wit and her expensive couture taste that dazzled the world over. She has been immortalized in the theater with the award-winning show Gypsy and literature with not only her own best selling novels and memories but literally hundreds of different pieces written in her honor. The show Gypsy has also been made into several different film renditions as well as appearing herself in many movies and TV shows. The best of all is grande modern burlesque shows, one most famously done by Dita Von Teese, all honoring how forever fabulous she is!

Here are some inspirational fashions from the ever enchanting Gypsy Rose Lee!

Heather Sweet, know the world over as Dita Von Teese, was a small town ballerina with bigger than life dreams of glory through glamor. She yearned for the old world existence of her role models from vintage Hollywood and the elegance the exuded. The moment she stepped into the big city there was no stopping her. She reinvented herself in the world of fetish modeling, often drawing inspiration from women like Bettie Page. Then she does it once more by reigniting the world of Burlesque, drawing from the only inspiration to draw from; Gypsy Rose Lee! She has since launched various different clothing, lingerie, hair, and makeup collections along with appearing in many movies, music videos as well as being a best selling author. She is truly an unstoppable woman!

Sexy Accessories | San Jose San Francisco Bay Area Boudoir Photography

 

When doing a boudoir photo shoot keep it unique and keep it about you. It’s time for that sexy side to sizzle. The best way to do that is through accessories, but you never want to over accessorize simply because IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU!! There are so many fun ways to do this that will not take away from that perfect shot!

Let’s go from top to bottom!

dec_border

 

Hats are a great start. Often times you can play with a lot of different close-up shots. And there is a hat for every look and every type. Everything from a big Hollywood glamor look to a rustic cowgirl look, you’d be surprised about its versatility.

dec_border

 

 

Now, personally, I am not a hat person. I’m not the only one either. But I can’t help but love a good headpiece of some kind. A great flapper style headband adorned with ornate fabrics and designs is one option that will enhance every picture.

dec_border

 

Tiaras and different bejeweled hair accessories are essential for the perfect boudoir bridal photo. The tiara is best when worn with an elegant veil, but is just as stunning by itself to make your inner princess come to life.

dec_border

 

But I can’t resist just keeping it simple and sexy with flowers in the hair. You can have a single rose sitting delicately on one side or have an entire arrangement placed throughout your hair of any flower you wish.

dec_border

 

Make a statement with an alluring mask. Entice those who look to stare deep into your eyes and become mesmerized. Be as subtle or as decorative as you wish with this fanciful accessory.

dec_border

 

Chokers are the sexiest types of necklaces. It hugs the neck with elegant styles and materials that make this ever sensual part of your body look longer and more delicate.

dec_border

 

Pearls are as simple as can be along with being as sexy as ever. Pearls pair well with every boudoir outfit, but it is even more desirable when it stands alone. Wear it close to your neck like a choker, wrap it with layers around your neck, or wear them long as the pearls follow down the center of your body.

dec_border

 

Go big and rocker with various types of draped chain. Gold is another personal favorite and letting the layers drape long and proud down every curve is so sexy.

dec_border

 

One option, if you are not into a chain like I am but still want to make a big statement, is to go with big colorful beaded pieces. The more colorful the better!

dec_border

 

 

But who could resist a wonderful jewelry set being the only outfit you wear. Let your jewels inspire the sexy in you.

dec_border

 

 

And what better to match with your exquisite jewels than a stunning fluffy fur stole or fur coat. It can be faux or no, colorful or simple, and always soft to the touch.

dec_border

 

Add a silky touch of something extra sexy with a pair of luxurious gloves. With such choices as lace, chiffon or satin, how could you not look glamorous? Have them long and simple or short and decorative to show off a unique you.

dec_border

 

Fans are the most beguiling accessory and always makes for a fabulous photo. Even more so than then any hat, the fan can be a great prop for a captivating close-up like no other.

dec_border

 

Body chains are the sexiest trend in boudoir accessories and with as many styles as there are ways to wear them you can not go wrong. When used for a photo shoot it often highlights the most arousing features.

dec_border

 

Belts can also be a great addition to your choice of outfit. With a corset waist belt, you can cheat! You have the same classic look of a corset without having to lose your breath or deal with to many ties.

dec_border

 


Chain belts are another great way to enhance your outfit and give you an edgy look that snugs closely and enhances your racy side.

dec_border

 

 

Garters! Need I say more? And with so many styles to choose you can be anything from a blushing bride to subtle hints of s&m, however the mood strikes you.

dec_border

 

 

Stockings? What’s more risque than stockings held up with a classic garter belt? It’s that vintage look that will never go out of style because it is so perfect, especially for a boudoir shoot.

dec_border

 

You’re going to need one sexy pair of pumps to really make your stockings complete. Any color, any style and however high you want them is the best way to make your luscious legs reach to the stars.

dec_border

 

But it’s not the only way to make your legs look spectacular. Boots! The higher the thigh the better! Make them look even more scandalous by wearing only your boots during your session.

dec_border

 

 

From head to toe and everything in between, make sure the true sexy vixen that exists within every pearl clutching lady shines brighter than a diamond.

What To Wear Wednesday | Mountain View Los Gatos Bay Area Boudoir Photography

 

It’s night time and not a thing left to do. Date night is fun, but you want to make it unforgettable and dazzling. It’s time to go into your closet and pull out your trusty ‘After Dark’ look, complete with the perfect lingerie to finish the night off.

dec_border

Purple is the color of royalty and you deserve to look like a queen. It can be a very dramatic statement or show a softer side of you depending on the shade. From it’s darkest to it’s lightest shades this versatile hue never ceases to impress your love.

dec_border

 

Black is a go-to classic! It caters to every event. Whether it’s a gala gown, a little black dress or a wild rocker piece. The thing that makes black truly the best is the ability to mix and match colors and patterns since black goes with everything.

dec_border

Red is the color of love, lust, desire, and everything that makes an after dark date even more fun. It’s an extremely powerful color that evokes a very raw emotion in not only the person wearing it but the person staring at you from across the room.

dec_border

Dark teal is a color I feel is often overlooked for such an occasion. It is as versatile and sexy as your more classic colors. It also compliments every skin tone and body shape. Think of a colorful peacock when thinking of this magnificent color.

dec_border

I know solid colors are fun and flirty, but you want to spice it up even more. Well, all that glitters is glamor for your date night. Don’t be afraid to sport those hand-sewn crystal embellishments and shimmery sequence with a boost of color!

dec_border

No matter where the night takes you and that special ‘After Dark’ date, make sure it leads you to new adventures and experiences.
