Social Distancing Distraction: Repurposing Fashion; Wardrobe Repeats Please!

Hey Loves! So I’ve got a confession to make… I am an outfit repeater! Yup, I said it and own it proudly lol. In a society of “one and done” media looks it can be easy to disregard an outfit once it’s been “gramed” (you know posted on social media like Instagram and what not). Well, I’m not the type to throw something away just because I’ve worn it once – I’ve become a pro at restyling and changing up the looks of garments – so today, I wanted to to share some of my tricks with you all!

I’ll show you how to take this dress and make it into…
This!

My process: once I’ve worn something at least three times I’m ready to change it up – style wise or completely altering a garment. As someone who doesn’t gravitate towards white I decided to alter this baby!

First up is fabric dye – I like using RIT Dye Easy to use, easy directions and step by step instructions, and I always get the color I’m looking for.

Once you’ve got it all dyed you can leave it as is, like the image below…

Still a gorgeous dress, now in a sunny yellow, and I loved shooting it this way buuuuut I wanted to take it another step further and turned this dress in to a crop top with matching skirt and it turned out beautifully!

So to achieve this two piece look I grabbed my fabric scissors and cut straight through the seam that connected the bodice of the dress to the skirt. I had to be extra careful when cutting due to the liner, once cut I pinned my hem on the top and the skirt, then hand sewed the new hems with the liner on the top and the skirt and voila!! A gorgeous new set to romp around in.

Until next time Loves! As always thank you for the support and please feel free to leave a comment on what other content you’d like to see while we’re practicing social distance!

Wardrobe Remix With Pretty Little Thing: White Jumpsuit Styled Three Ways

Hey Loves! Back again with a brand new wardrobe remix! In this edition of wardrobe remix I’m styling this gorgeous jumpsuit with puff sleeves from Pretty Little Thing! But first let’s talk about this gorgeous retro vibin one piece: as a petite woman (5’1) the length of the legs was waaay to much for me so I ended up having to cuff the hem, the fabric itself is comfortable with lots of give so I was never feeling like a stuffed sausage in this baby, not once was I scratching or itching because of uncomfortable fabric or liners and surprisingly the fabric was pretty lightweight so I wasn’t sweltering in it either, the plunging neckline was a blast to play with and it fit phenomenally around my middle.

Now let’s talks styling; with the plunging neckline I knew that any way I styled this look the lingerie underneath was going to show, so I did a little research and found Brassy Bra (boob tape) to create this glowing cleavage!

The first way I styled this jumpsuit was with a body chain that disappeared beneath the fabric giving that vavavoom sexy appeal I love oh so much, I added bright and colorful heels to off play so much white and a fun bright lip that matched my heels to livin up this look!

The second way I styled this look was by putting a little retro spin on it! First I adjusted the length of the sleeve and made it three quarters. I then went with a high ponytail, vintage looking cat eye bejeweled sunglasses, and a polka dot belt with the cutest bow in the back. I ended this look with a pair of edgy black and white heels, red earrings that matched my lipstick, and a vintage black hand bag.

The final way I styled this look was coordinating accessories and makeup: I used a powerful red lip that I matched my earrings, collar, sunglasses, toe nail polish, and clutch to. Clear heels kept the focus on my red accents. I also once again adjusted the sleeve length to just above the wrists on my forearm.

A few styling notes; I wanted to add that any jacket, cropped sweater/shrug, or shoulder wrap will also drastically change the look of this jumpsuit, with it being warmer weather I stuck with warmer looks this time. Also with how much room there is in the fabric of the legs of this jumpsuit it would be super easy to temporarily change the length of the legs by using fabric tape or hemming tape and changing the length of the legs to shorts or Capri length, then when done remove tape and BAM you still have your full length jumpsuit.

Until next time Loves,

Review with Brassy Bra: The Incredible Breast Tape

Intro, demo, and three quick looks with Brassy Bra

My Loves, have I got something wonderful to share with you: Brassy Bra! This fabulous boob tape works wonders for my cleavage so I had to share it with you all, you know – so you Loves can make that cleavage utterly fabulous without the aid of an underwire bra while still giving a natural look with the support of Brassy Bra.

I also want to add that I also go without a bra in public as well and there is nothing wrong with that either – it’s still gorgeous and so is your chest without the aid of undergarments.

Now, A little about Brassy Bra: they are a 97% cotton blend that breathes and moves with you, while also lifting and supporting, comes in sizes A-DDDD (European A-G), and the adhesive is heat activated by body temp which allows you the freedom to move without the adhesive coming off. Brassy Bra also offers five different skin shades for you to choose from.

If you watched the video above you’ll see application is oh so easy! First step place the pastie over the nipple area – to protect from the sticky adhesive, second step remove the bottom sticker and place to desired place on the bottom of the breast, third secure and then remove the second sticker tab and place where desired cleavage effect is perfect for you – repeat for the other side and you are all set!

Brassy Bra recommends not wearing for longer than eight hours. Other pluses include its pretty much invisible under clothing (including mesh – I tried it), it’s dance and waterproof, disposable and the kit comes with three sets! You can also customize but cutting to your specific fit although they do say that more than half an inch or an inch and it can loose it’s desired effect.

While wearing Brassy Bra I felt almost like I had on two giant bandaids but not in a bad way. There was no pulling of skin, the fabric was light weight, it made my boobs look fabulous, and movement was never an issue.

Removing was also super simple! Following the Brassy suggestion I used vegetable oil to slowly take off the adhesive and then took a hot shower. There was no pain, no redness, and besides light imprints from the adhesive pattern no visible marks left behind.

Make sure to check back Friday 2/7/2020 for images from my latest shoot where I’ve styled three special looks around Brassy Bra! As always Loves, thank you for taking the time out of your day to spend a little time with over here.

Until next time,

Wardrobe Remix: Three Looks, One Item: ELOQUII Shimmer One Piece

Oh my, Loves – say hello the Shimmer One Piece from ELOQUII! This Swimsuit – this beautiful shimmery bronze goldish swimsuit is what summer dreams are made of; the bronze metallic shimmer in the fabric compliments any skin tone (I’m extremely pale and was concerned about looking washed out and that was soo not the case), the construction of this suit had me feeling utterly secure with built in soft wire free cups support, and I’m a DD, and it hugged my curves to perfection!

High waisted detail plunging neckline

The adjustable straps are easy to move about and I was able to create the perfect strap length for me! The suit is fully lined and one of my favorite design elements of this suit is the high waist detail and the plunging neckline, can we say sexy?! I felt like a goddess in this suit which is why it inspired a few other looks that I’ve included below! But first, one more swimsuit shot because my goodness – it’s just wow!

First look inspired by this gorgeous suit is what I like to call The Boss Bitch Blazer Look! The base of this look, is of course, the shimmer one piece, next I paired it with Neoprene Pencil Skirt in plaid – again an ELOQUII piece – and topped this look off with a blazer I found in the back of my husband’s side of the closet. Combined with edgy ankle boots and you have a sexy yet professional style that earns a double look every time!

Now, if you Loves have been with me for a moment or two you know I keep accessories to a minimum and this look was no different. Dangling pearl earrings in gold accents, with a matching gold crystal pointer ring and my late grandmothers opal in a gold setting. No necklace because I just loved how stunning my cleavage looked bare. I normally never not wear a bra lol but with the built in support I felt the girls where secure to take out for a spin!

One detail I truly love about this neoprene pencil skirt is the zipper detail in the back of the skirt hem! You can unzip it to relax the fit of the skirt or keep it zipped like I have it here for that tight classic pencil skirt look.

The second look inspired by this shimmery beautiful one piece is what I refer to as the Casual Brunch Look! We have the one piece paired with the fabulously comfy Ruffle Waist Pant With Ankle Ties and yes, Loves – it’s got pockets!!!

With this look I wanted to keep things simple so I added a small black shrug I found while thrifting and a pair of utterly fabulous platform heels. Accessories are simple again with just the added detail of a heart choker and matching sunglasses that my dear photographer House Of Winter Studios provided for this shoot!

And Last, but certainly not least, is the Spring Bunny Costume Look! This look was created from my brilliant photographer’s mind! She had this gorgeous spring set and decided that I needed to be a bunny and who was I to argue?

This look was created using a pair of bunny ears and fake cherry blossom flowers, we left the shoes and choker from the brunch look and then we pinned a bunny tail on the back to complete this frivolously cute spring look – hey, who said costumes are just for Halloween!

One of the things I truly love about Boudoir photography is the fun of it! It doesn’t have to be perfect or exactly styled just so to be enjoyed and everybody can enjoy Boudoir! I love how whimsical the set is, I love how sexy I look (PlayBoy Bunnies Eat Your Heart Out) but I also love the fun costume element of the ears and tail! Over all it was a fun shoot with gorgeous results and the next time I’m having a bad body day I’m going to remind myself of how sexy I looked as a bunny lol!

Until next time my Loves,

Kat XO
