Tushy Tuesday | San Jose Bay Area Photographer



I cannot miss another Tushy Tuesday! Although this shot could also be considered a leg or shoe shot, I believe it’s a wonderful combo of all three!

What I would give for these legs. Sigh.

Enjoy and happy Tushy Tuesday everyone!

Fashion Friday – Another Etsy Holiday | San Jose Boudoir Photography



I seriously don’t know where this year has gone, but apparently it’s holiday shopping time already (at least according to the 900 retail emails I get each day). Last year I put together a fun Etsy gift guide, and since it’s Fashion Friday, I thought it’d be fun to do another one with a focus on accessories and other things you can wear. Who doesn’t love a cozy scarf or sparkly jewelry?

In case you’re not familiar, Etsy is an e-commerce site that focuses mainly on handmade and vintage goods. Since almost anyone can open up an Etsy shop, it’s a perfect place to support small businesses and to find some really unique stuff. Of course, the downside is that there’s a whole lot of garbage on Etsy too, but that’s always good for a few laughs.

One of the things I really love about Etsy is that you can find unique gifts at all different price points, and no one needs to know how much you spent! I tried to include items to fit every budget, and there is nothing more than (or really even close to) $100. No matter the cost, I always think it’s special to receive a gift that’s handmade or one of a kind. You can’t put a price tag on that.

2. Coin Purse – $16

3. Plum Druzy Earrings – $75

Fashion Friday – Update & Scandalous Loungewear | San Jose Boudoir Photography



Before I get started with the fun stuff, I wanted to give a quick update to my bra-fitting PSA post from a few weeks ago (this one).

After wearing my new bra from Nordstrom for a few weeks, I really wanted to purchase a second one, but couldn’t stomach spending another $70 right away. I had what I thought was a brilliant idea and headed to Nordstrom Rack to see if perhaps they had something similar to my bra in an unpopular color or older style or something. I mean, that’s how “outlets” work, right? (I’m being somewhat sarcastic here).

When I got to Nordstrom Rack I found a very similar looking Natori bra for $30 and figured it was probably a previous iteration of the one I bought at Nordstrom. I was in a rush, so I grabbed it without trying it on and was on my way.

Well, when I got home I was really disappointed to see that what I bought appeared to be an inferior copy of my $70 bra. The fabric is different, cups are molded into an odd shape, seams don’t look as nice as the more expensive one, etc. I was a little bummed but figured as long as it felt the same it didn’t really matter that much. Wrong. After wearing the $30 bra for a few days, I can say with certainty that the more expensive bra was absolutely worth it. The Nordstrom Rack version doesn’t fit as well, gives me a weird shape, has an intolerably scratchy tag (which I keep forgetting to cut out), and just all around isn’t as comfortable. While I’m the first one to love a good bargain, this is just further confirmation that you get what you pay for, and when it comes to bras, it’s worth the extra money!

Okay, so that ended up being longer than I anticipated, but I really want to make sure no one makes the same mistake I did. Instead of being out $140 for two good quality bras, I’m going to be out $170 for two good quality bras and one crappy one.

Now for the fun stuff!

I’m a little behind the times, but my husband and I started watching Scandal, the ABC drama staring Kerry Washington, a few weeks ago and are totally hooked. It started one night while we were browsing Netflix looking for a movie to watch. Per the usual, we couldn’t agree on one, and had a conversation that went something like this:

Me: I’d like to try watching Scandal one day.

Husband: I wouldn’t mind watching it. Let’s try an episode.

The next thing we know it’s 4 AM and we’ve watched all of Season 1 (which isn’t quite as many episodes as the others).

Scandal is currently in its fourth season on ABC, and the show has received all kinds of buzz over the years. One thing that seems to be a big obsession is the main character Olivia Pope’s wardrobe. She’s definitely one stylish lady, but what really caught my eye was her loungewear. Whenever there’s a late night knock on her door, she’s always looking exceptionally posh in various layers of neutral colored silks and cashmeres, while sipping red wine from her signature long-stem glasses (and probably munching on some popcorn too). She really puts my “cat-hair-covered yoga pants and Target tank top” lounging wardrobe to shame. Needless to say — I am envious, so I put together a style board of Olivia Pope inspired loungewear to share with you folks.

While all of these pieces are perfect for relaxing at home and catching up on Netflix, I think they’re meant to be seen, and would also be perfect for a soft and sexy boudoir session. Now that the cooler months are here, there’s nothing sexier than a lacy bra peeking out from a soft and snuggly sweater!
