This past weekend at the Curvy Girl Lingerie Show, I was introduced to a new (to me) name in lingerie, Coquette. Holy Cow ladies! This is some beautiful stuff! Sexy, sensual, glamorous, and even a bit naughty! Take a look at some of my favorite pieces, found on the Curvy Girl Lingerie website.

Up first a gorgeous Merlot color babydoll. The top of this is stunning! I love the little cap sleeves and the almost fully sheer top. The little ribbon trim at the bottom with the bow is a nice addition.

Another piece I saw while browsing was this beautiful purple chemise. Miss Saucye West is wearing the piece named after her in this photo, and this is what she modeled at the fashion show. It is so stunning in person ladies! And I think you can see by the photo how beautiful this chemise is. From the detail around the bust to the black trim around the piece itself, this might end up being one of your favorites!

Another fun piece I saw was this waist clincher. I love that it ties up the back, so it will easily accommodate any size. And adding the ruffle panties gives it a little something extra.

Last, but certainly not least is a fabulous black brocade corset. Paired with booty shorts this is a great look for your bedroom, or a boudoir shoot!

When you think of doing a boudoir shoot, you probably start thinking about lingerie; what you currently have that can work, or maybe that special little outfit you’ve had your eye on for that just right occasion. But what if I said you didn’t need all lingerie for your boudoir session?! Would you think I’m crazy?

Seriously ladies, you don’t need to have all lingerie! Danea can work wonders with any special item that you bring in. Let me show you some ideas!

A sweater can be just as sexy as your favorite lingerie. And what’s nice about bringing in a piece of regular clothing is that every time your significant other sees you in it, they’ll think about those sexy, sensual photos you took!

 How about his favorite tie?! That’ll send him over the edge every time he wears it!

Think outside the box ladies! What do you have sitting around, or can sneak away, that you can use for your session? Bring it, and Danea can make it sexy. The most important thing is that you feel amazing in what you bring. If it’s special to you (or him/her) it’ll bring a special smile to your face that will come across in your photos. So, what do you have lying around that would be great for your shoot?

Take The Chance, You’re Worth it! | San Jose Bay Area Boudoir Photographer

What is stopping you?

 

It’s only Wednesday and I have had a roller coaster week. I won’t go into details but Monday I was blindsided with bad news from a business stand point, but ultimately nothing that truly affects me or hinders my business right now. It did however, make me realize that I am a fighter. It made me think about what I do and do not want when it comes to business. It made me think long and hard about my goals. It made me realize that MY happiness is important. It made me realize that I can do what I put my mind to and good things will come.

Last night I was invited to a networking meeting with some amazing women entrepreneurs– I had a wonderful time and made some great connections. The support given here helped assure me that I am on the right path. It helped pick me up from the previous days blow. It made me realize there will always be someone to support me, even if they are, at the time, a stranger.

This morning I had a phone meeting with another amazing woman half way across the country. She contacted me out of the blue with a proposal and we are starting to plan another business related adventure(I cannot give details yet, sorry). It’s an aspect of my life that I have wanted to branch out on and had no idea how, when she reached out to me last week, well, the pieces may be falling together. I’m excited about what is to come and how this all ties into what I currently do for women. It made me realize that there is always more. It made me realize that you really do have to take chances, no matter how scary. It made me realize that there is so much more in me to give.

I met another photographer for lunch. She belongs to a local photography group that I recently joined, not only was she great company but it was great to bounce ideas off one another. When I shared the issue with this group, they were thoughtful. They helped walk me through options. They helped me sort out my feelings and what steps I needed to take. They made me realize the importance of a good community, even an online one. It made me realize that I need to get out more and make new friends.

We all have ideas and dreams. We all, get caught up in the daily grind and put our happiness on the back burner. Sure we may be fine, but is there something we are holding onto, maybe not even truly aware of, that is holding us back? The last few days opened my eyes to something that was more than a nuisance, it was actually stifling my creativity and bringing me down even though in general, I am happy. It was an “Ah ha!” moment. It was stopping me from personal and business growth and I wasn’t even totally aware of the effect it was having on me. I know I can’t be the only one to experience this.

When is the last time you took a hard look at what is happening in your life and sorted through the things that make you truly happy and the things that are holding you back? When was the last time you took a chance on something new? When was the last time you started a new adventure, something you have wanted or have been meaning to do but haven’t? What is stopping you? Is it an excuse? The last few days have taught me that it is time. No one but you can take the reins and make it happen but there is likely someone or multiple people out there to help you and guide you. Don’t be afraid to take that chance. Don’t be afraid to reach out. It’s worth it. YOU, are worth it.

A simple accessory can really add to the look of your outfit. I’m thinking of something that we all probably have in our closet, just sitting there waiting to be worn. Some are to keep you warm, but mainly this accessory is for the look it gives. Know what I’m talking about?

Scarfing

 

Scarfs make one of the best fashion accessories. Since there are so many styles and types of scarfs they are an easy choice for a go to accessory.
You can find lightweight choices to jazz up a summer outfit

Or a nice, warm, chunky scarf to wear in the winter

Scarfs look really good with those tall boots sitting in your closet waiting to wear this winter.
It's a Wrap! Fun Fall Scarves

 

There are so many different ways to tie a scarf for different looks too. Sometimes tying it differently can add to the look of your outfit. Here is something I ran across on Pinterest and have saved for reference (click on the photo to be taken to the website).
scarf
This site is seriously the know all on how to tie a scarf. I never realized how many different ways, I have my old standby that I always use.
You can pick up a scarf at any store and they are fairly inexpensive. Just like everything though you can purchase some pricey ones! Go with what you like. Solid, pattern, chunky, lightweight, infinity, blanket; whatever you like! That’s what your wardrobe is about. Finding things you like and wearing them so you feel good.
Do you reach for a scarf to jazz up an outfit ladies? What’s your favorite that you have? How do you like wearing it?

We all have that one outfit that is simple and understated but makes us feel amazing. A few pieces put together can help lift your spirits, or at least mine it does mine!

It can be something as simple as wearing your favorite pair of heels with a t-shirt and jeans, or a sexy new bra and panty set under a typical every day work outfit. You’ll know you’ve got something sexy going on underneath and it can really bring a smile to your face.

I love this set below. Simple and understated, but man those heels really help pull this outfit out of an ordinary day look.

Time Out

 

Other accessories can help bring that spark to a normal outfits; a new statement necklace, or a new purse, maybe even a gorgeous new color on your lips.
Share with me ladies; what is your favorite way to jazz up an ordinary outfit and put a spring in your step?

Let’s bring it on back to some beautiful lingerie on the blog today ladies. It can be tough to find a style of lingerie that fits every body shape, but there is one universal piece and that’s what we’re gonna chat about today.

A chemise is a beautiful slip piece of lingerie. Usually made of satin, these are soft and delicate, but can also be lacy and see through. You can usually find a matching robe or kimono to accompany your chemise.

A matching robe can really add to the look of your chemise. Some woman aren’t comfortable in just the chemise so the accompanying robe is a great choice.
I feel this type of lingerie fits every body style because it’s not figure hugging for those who do not want that look, but for those that do there certainly are lace pieces. The straps are adjustable on these so if you need a bit of extra support you can adjust them for your girls.
The satin chemise and robe are a great choice for your boudoir shoot and for the bedroom (or behind closed doors). This is a very popular style for bridal lingerie too. Don’t forget your stilettos!
What do you think ladies, is this your style? With robe, or without robe? Satin or lace?
