When Vedette Shapewear contacted me to do a blog post styling their pieces, I was so excited! I love lingerie-inspired pieces as I'm a sucker for anything ultra-feminine. And what fashionista gal wouldn't wanna add some extra va-va-voom to their wardrobe?
I gotta be honest, when I first pulled my Aimee bodysuit out of the packaging, I was a little apprehensive because the suit looked so tiny. But that's the cool thing about it - it's got some magic material that's crazy stretchy and durable. Once I slid into it, it fit fantastic and made me feel very smooth. It hugs my body really well without being uncomfortably tight. And maybe this was just in my head, but I felt like it made my posture better. Just how heels naturally makes you stand straighter, so did the shape wear.
I paired the gorgeous, creamy bodysuit with my wool blazer and dressy tweed shorts. The blazer and color palette is a little severe for me, but the suit gives the outfit a feminine, softer touch and the shorts worn with tights show that this outfit isn't for the office. This is something I would wear to a date with my boyfriend or maybe out wine tasting with the girls.
I did the photo shoot with the beautiful and talented Alla Ponomareva. She's great to work with because she has a great eye for such attention to detail and she's so calm (she could have been a scuba instructor but luckily, she's putting her talents to better use). We did the shoot on top of a skyscraper in the middle of the city. It had such a fantastic view of the city and the wind really added to the photos.
