REAL BOUDOIR™ | beyond the curves and lingerie | Keep THIS deck of cards far away from his poker buddies…

I have a little treat for you today.  And I pretty much guarantee you wouldn’t have thought about doing something like this on your own.  But hey, great, unique ideas are the reason you come here, right? ;)

Ok, SO!

… You gals remember this fabulousness, right?  This too.  Yes?  Great, I knew you would.

Now, here’s the thing.  I kept something from you about that shoot.  I know, I know… I’m sorry.  It’s just that, well, I thought it was such a neat little idea, that I felt it deserved to be set apart from the actual shoot.  Hence, this here post.  A post about playing cards.

Ahh, but not just any playing cards, ladies…

SEXY ones!

That’s right.  A set of cards with Miss A’s hot bod on each and every single one.  This, my friends, is what I call a swell idea.

Shelby and Taryn of Joielala Photographie shared that Miss A came up with the idea herself, wanting to create a fun little gift to give her new hubby for their honeymoon.  Go, that!!!

Miss A, you are a delight.

{Ok, people, I can’t help myself… }  A deck like this seems rather ideal for a nice little game of strip poker, wouldn’t you say?  Though, it looks like Miss A stands to lose that game at the outset, every time.

Hardy harr harr, I know, bad joke.  Man, tough crowd.  (You can’t say I didn’t warn you.)

Major thanks to the lovely ladies of Joielala Photographie for sending these hot shots.  It has to be the coolest boudoir-related idea I’ve seen yet.  So unique, and so sexy!

Oh, P.S. – Taryn and Shelby shot what I consider one of the hottest to trottest pairs of glittery gold peep toes this side of sexyville.  I couldn’t help but share them with you here.

Here’s the rub: they’re from Forever 21, which – given their tendency to change inventory frequently – means they’re most likely no longer available.  I’m not sure, but I’m just warning you so you don’t get your panties all in a bunch.  Save that for your boudoir session.

So, what do you think?  Are you considering doing a boudoir session?  If you are, would you like to do something like this?  Or do you think that an album of nearly-nude pics of you are present enough for his lucky a$$.  Chime in below. :)

    It’s a fantastic idea! when my clients do boudoir they’ve wondered what to do with the photos other than just hang them on bedroom walls, etc.

    This is such a great idea! I bet her husband loved them. :)

    i was going to do a boudoir shot but then decided not to – it’s not really “me” but if i feel like i’m ready to do it in the future, i might!

    No doubt you are my fave blog to follow but the shoes you just posted above are HOT! Forever 21?? Well, I just might have to trot on over there and buy me a pair for my boudoir session I am planning. My hubby is coming back from Afghanistan soon and it is my little gift to him! Can’t wait!!

    What an amazing idea! I would love to do a boudoir shot for my sweetheart-something super retro and pinup would be fabulous, and he’d be over the moon!

  15. McKay Pittman on November 5, 2010
