I’m no fashionista……

…..but I thought I would put together some fun things I have collected in my links folder for some boudoir suggestions.  I tend to love vintage looking items but pretty much anything can be used in boudoir!  An off the shoulder sweater, a hand me down vintage coat from your grandmother, a tank top with lace back, a slip, a crop jacket, tons of things can be used for boudoir and you might already have them in your closet!

I like black and grey, I wear these colors 99% of the time. No, I am not sad or depressed,  I just like it. I hate to “match” stuff and I’d rather just throw on one of my many black items and hope one piece hasn’t faded to green black. LOL So here are my suggestions for others who like black. I recommend pairing one of my “Silverscreen,” “Haute Obsidian,” “Cristal,” or “Black Magic” boudoir albums with these choices.  Pairs well without being too “matchy matchy.” <– Yes, I speak “Des Speak.”

1. Arielle Collection Crystal Dome Ring in Hematite, 2 & 3. Strapless Corset and High Waist brief by Unique, 4. Nordstrom 10mm glass bead strands, 5. Chiffon Crop Jacket, 6. Jeffrey Campbell Tabitha Pump, 7. Nars Nail Polish in Orgasm

I also get a lot of brides-to-be who want their albums to be “bridal” looking for their grooms gift on the day of their wedding. I recommend one of my “Whitesnake,” “White Downs,” or “Platinum Blonde” albums.

1. Lace and Mesh Corset, 2. Kate Spade Putting on the Ritz ring, 3. Satin Bodycon Slip 4. Badgley Mischka Randall Pump 5. Yves Saint Laurent Sensual Radient Lipstick in ‘Beige Caress’

and back to black! I recommend one of my “Candyland,” “Texas Tea” or “Red Hot” albums with these.

1. Rouge Dior Lip color in Favori Red 2. Mesh underwire bra 3. Mesh and Lace skirt 4. Ariella Collection Enamel Flower Ring 5. Enzo Angiolini “Sully” Black Pump 6. Eyelure Sophisticate Eyelashes

Romance and Pink! I recommend one of my “Platinum Blonde,” “White Downs” or “Cristal” album fabrics.

1. Chinese Laundry Haylie Pump 2. Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm 3. Nordstrom Glass Stretch Pearl Bracelet 4. Top Shop Blush Bralet 5. Mac Mineralize Skin Finish (I LOVE this stuff!) 6. Deborah Lippmann “Bring on the Bling” Nail Color 7. Tasha Flower Statement Necklace 8. Top Shop Blush Lace Panty

You can check out my Facebook page for more suggestions. Randomly when I find fun pieces, I post them there. Right now there are some plus size suggestions.

*Sizing tip of the day: size UP! I know it’s not fun to buy a bigger number but rip the tag off and pretend.  Trust me on this, it’s better to size up then it is to have bulges pushing out under your arm pits or back.  I also recommend HIGH heels versus “kitten” heels.  It helps elongate your legs and pushes up your butt. Avoid ankle straps if you have shorter legs or thicker ankles and look for a “step in” heel instead.
