Ideas You Might Love | Wardrobe Inspiration | Boudoir Becomes Eclectic

This Muse, Ms. S. brought in SO MANY fun things to play with at her studio boudoir session in Boston. And she just really went to town with her accessories. So many necklaces.  So many fun vintage pieces to mix in with her new lingerie. 

When we initially spoke, we chatted about her love to vintage, her tendency to go for layers and a bohemian look.  Her Pinterest board was full of glamorous women from the Ziegfeld girls to Brigitte Bardot to Steve Nicks.  Lots of texture and lots of drama!  I sent her a few items I found on Etsy. She headed into the Modern Glamour favorite brick and mortar lingerie shop 40 Winks to get a few new pieces.  And she even made her own two tiered peakcock feather earrings.  So there is also that.

Happy Valentine's Day! Go Give Yourself Some Flowers

My closets and drawers used to be grays and blacks with the occasional hint of red, but with a little mindset expansion color and pattern have crept right in to my sweaters and shirts and even my pants!  The drawers that are still solid (and mostly boring) colors are the drawers.  You know the underthings. 

And as Valentine's Day is tomorrow,  I wanted to share some of my new favorite floral prints.  Just in time for you to maybe buy yourself some flowers that won't wilt, as I slowly restock my own drawers with spring.

The Fashion season are rarely if ever in sync with the actual weather we are experiencing. And though it's technically fall in Boston, the weather today still evoking the heat of a mid-August day.  We are starting to book boudoir shoots for the fall and winter - and the wardrobe and styling options will change with the season. 

BEAUTIFUL AND OUTRAGEOUSLY SEXY

FALL/WINTER LINGERIE

ROUNDUP OF LINGERIE IDEAS FOR YOUR FALL or WINTER BOUDOIR SESSION

And it doesn't always have to be lingerie.  I'll photograph you in whatever you bring in.  I want you to feel comfortable and that just might not be in traditional lace or silk underthings.  And that's totally okay.  Below are four things to think about when you are planning your fall or winter boudoir shoot.  Neckline, Length, Layering and Color. 

NECKLINES!

Yokes, cutouts, panels.  All good options for highlighting necklines, drawing the eye up to your face and giving visual interest.

LAYERING!

Layering and draping create beautiful color and texture combinations. It won't actually be cold in the room while you have your boudoir portraits done.  Adding layers is a great way to create interesting textures and variety as you can take layers off as you feel more comfortable.

Remembrance | Grandmother

About six weeks short of 100 years old, my grandmother passed away peacefully.  I wrote about her on her 99th birthday last fall as she was glamorous at any age

I've been spending some time this evening carefully turning over memories of her.  I wanted to share her beautiful bridal portrait.  She always loved calla lillies and I adore her enormous and simple wedding bouquet.

The formal portrait of the bride and groom - They were married at the Gore Estate in Waltham, and though the spiral staircase behind them is on a painted backdrop it does look like the spiral staircase at Gore.  Perhaps it was even painted for the purpose for the Waltham photography studio.
