Wardrobe Wednesday – Boudoir Edition

This week for Wardrobe Wednesday I decided to give a bit more of an in depth view into some great pieces that would be perfect for your boudoir session!

 

First, there are a few pieces that I recently found at City Drawers in Belfast (stay tuned for more information on some collaborations we have in the works!)

 

2017 04 20 14.42.50 1 900x796 Wardrobe Wednesday   Boudoir Edition

Ignore the cell phone snapshots, it was all I had with me at the moment, but I just fell in love with both of these pieces! I didn’t have a chance to thoroughly inspect all of their amazing pieces, but I definitely saw some other very fun items that you may not expect to find in this quaint little shop on Main st in Belfast. Be sure to stop in next time you’re in town and get a free Bra Fitting with Stephanie and check out what they’ve got… and feel free to send me photos of your favorites! And don’t forget, they also have a store in Bath, Maine now as well!

 

If you aren’t in the Belfast or Bath areas and like to do your shopping online, this piece here is absolutely gorgeous, and conveniently available on Amazon! For only $12 and available in two different styles and SO many color options, this is definitely a Go-To piece for anyone! Sizes Small through XXL available!

 

I love everything about this outfit! Available in sizes XS-XL with a slightly padded top for those who want a little added modesty during their session!

Check back soon for our next edition of Wardrobe Wednesday!

How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

Maine Boudoir Studio 010 900x600 How wearing makeup can affect your self esteem

 

Yesterday morning, while drinking my coffee and scrolling Facebook I came across a post by a local radio station. It was a message they were posting from one of their followers, talking about how her 8 year old came home from school and asked if she could wear makeup because a classmate did. The mother said  “The makeup may improve my daughter’s low self-esteem. It may also attract unwanted attention from pervs. Is 8 years-old too young for makeup?”

I read through some of the comments and overwhelmingly everyone had negative comments about makeup in general. Continue reading »

White Shirts and Jerseys

Kristi 07 900x600 White Shirts and Jerseys

 

Miss K. came to our open house on October 1st to get a first hand look at how everything works and to observe one of her friends being photographed live at the event. When she expressed interest in booking a boudoir session for her husband, I was super excited to tell her all about what I could do for her! She knew she wanted to incorporate his favorite jersey into the session, and I have to say, she rocked it… what a sassy look! Continue reading »
