So, I recently had the privilege of being part of a boudoir style photoshoot with 3 of my friends. The photographer, Bryan Mitchell, is in the process of expanding his business to include boudoir, and needed some models. Wait, you mean, I get to play dress up and look sexy in front of a camera with a bunch of my girlfriends, and in turn, have a great 1 year anniversary gift for my husband that will come free of charge in return for use of my photos? Yes please! My arm did not need to be twisted.
And instantly, as a lover of vintage pin up fashion, I KNEW I would be wearing a corset. The hard part was deciding which one! I ended out wanting to do an all black sort of a look, so I went with my black Jasmine Underbust Corset a black strapless bra, sky high heels, and these HOT fishnet stockings with lace top. The outfit really came together, and the Lisa Cressey from Agape Salon, did such a great job on my hair and make up, it really helped me to achieve the look I was going for.
I really think this is something everyone should do. By nature, I am a rather shy person, especially when it comes to stuff like this. But after a few clicks of the camera, I became very comfortable, and it was a lot of fun! My photos are “for his eyes only” but here are some of my favorite vintage pin up boudoir looks, that inspired my photoshoot! Building an outfit (or two or three) is something our staff at Versatile Corsets do best!! In fact, this is one of our FAVORITE things to do! Here are some ideas:
