Classically Glam Valentine’s Day Lingerie

You probably have some ideas in mind when you think of lingerie for Valentine’s Day – red, pink, satin, lace – but everyone has their own style. Yandy came up with 4 “V-Day Vixens” to help you find the best lingerie for your personal style. I chose the Classic Glam look because I tend to choose more classic silhouettes that I feel are more flattering for my curves. I also prefer lingerie that has a luxurious feel and rich colors. Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love, but also indulging a little and making the day special for the both of you.

For the Classic Glam style, of course I had to choose some classic staples for the holiday. Here are my top Valentine’s Day lingerie essentials:

Lace Robe

Yandy Pink Sheer Lace Robe

The Yandy Eyelash Lace Robe Set is a sheer mesh with lace trim and satin belt. The Amaranth color is very rich and the lace makes it look a lot more expensive than it is (only $24.95!). A nice robe always makes me feel super fancy and this color is great for Valentine’s Day. You can wear it when you’re getting ready and doing your makeup, and as a coverup over your lingerie.

Satin Romper

Yandy Green Satin and Lace Romper

I am loving jewel tones right now, and this Green Eyelash Lace and Satin Romper is the perfect shade of green. The satin buttons and lace details give it an elegant touch and the criss cross straps on the back make it really easy to adjust. As you can probably tell from my faux fur blanket, I am all about soft, luxurious items. I can’t resist anything that makes me feel like a princess! There’s something about the overall look of this romper that makes me feel like royalty in some fantasy world.

Satin Chemise

Yandy Red Satin Chemise

A Red Satin Chemise is a classic choice for Valentine’s Day. The strappy back on this one gives it an updated, modern look. You can’t go wrong with red on Valentine’s Day and this chemise is the perfect shade of red for the holiday. Lead the way with some rose petals on the floor for a quintessential February 14th.

Here are some of my other lingerie pieces from Yandy: Viviane Plunging Mesh and Lace Chemise Set, Enchanting Garnet Chemise Set, Long Satin and Chiffon Robe.

How to Choose a New Year’s Dress Based on Your Style

Everyone has their own idea of what a New Year’s outfit should look like, but one thing is for certain – this is the time to wear something decadent that you wouldn’t wear on any old night out. You can dress as extravagantly as you please because everyone will be dressed to the nines. Of course, you don’t want to wear something you’re not comfortable in, because the whole point of the night is to have fun. Whatever you choose to wear should reflect your personal style, but also dare to push the boundaries and take it to the next level.

Star of the Show

Gold Metallic Dress with Thigh High Slit
Yandy Divine Metallic Dress

New Year’s parties are the one time you can really go all out and not stick out like a sore thumb, so why not go for it? Floor length is definitely the way to go if you are dressing to impress. You will turn heads in this dress with the thigh high slit and gorgeous gold, slinky fabric. The cut of the dress hugs your curves in all the right places.

FYI, this is the dress I will actually be wearing on New Year’s Eve because I am just that extra. I usually wear something with sequins, but I’m ready to change it up this year. Metallic has the same ‘wow’ factor without sharp plastic scratching up my arms.

Classic with a Twist

Black Gown with Zipper Front
Divine Vixen Dress

Black is always a great choice for formal events, and not everyone loves sparkle. You can jazz up the classic black gown with an edgy touch, like a zipper running down the front. Just because it is a plain black dress doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The material for this dress is super stretchy and is very figure flattering. You can even take the outfit up a notch with eye-catching shoes or accessories. This dress is also great for a more formal New Year’s Eve party.

Club-Going Cutie

Red Long Sleeve Dress with Cutout Neckline
Call Me Baby Red Dress

If you don’t feel like wearing a floor length dress, a cocktail dress is also a great choice. Red will definitely stand out from the crowd, and the cut out gives it a flirty touch without being too revealing. This dress is also made from a very stretchy and figure-hugging material, which is perfect for showing off your curves. Wearing a short dress also makes it a lot easier to dance, which I’m sure everyone will be doing a lot of on New Year’s Eve!

Fill Your Christmas Stocking with…Stockings!

When you were a kid, getting socks for Christmas was THE WORST. But stockings are the grown up, much more fun, distant cousins of socks that the special female in your life would love to get for Christmas. If you’re stuck on ideas for stocking stuffers this year, or just want to treat yourself, then take a look at some of the stockings I’ve picked out from Yandy’s hosiery section. Below are my favorite stockings and some ideas for how to wear them.

There’s nothing more classically sexy than stockings with a back seam. You can go for a full on retro look, or style them for a more modern outfit. I wore mine with a faux leather skirt and chunky black boots for a more edgy vibe. The garter belt also gives you a little boost of confidence and makes you feel like you have a little sultry secret that no one else knows about.

These over-the-knee socks are a great gift choice because they are so versatile. They can be dressed up or down, and can be worn either pulled up to the thigh or scrunched down below the knee. I really like the country girl feel they bring to this outfit when paired with brown leather boots and a flowy dress.

Glittering Diamond Thigh High Stockings

For a gift that really “wows”, I would choose these sparkling thigh high stockings. They can really take an outfit to the next level and are perfect for holiday parties. I really like that they are thigh high, rather than going all the way up to the waist, so they are more comfortable – especially when wearing a lot of layers in the winter. They don’t slip down as you walk around either, which can be super annoying. They really stand out with an all black outfit. I wore them with a plain black dress, black faux fur coat and chunky heels.   

When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black opaque tights, like these Solid Micro Fiber Tights. Black tights are a staple for any women’s wardrobe, and these are good quality tights that don’t feel like they’re going to rip from a single scratch of your manicured nails.

If you want to really go all out, you can further supplement your stocking stuffer gifts with accessories like Garter Suspender Straps, or Leg Harnesses. Don’t be afraid to get creative! There’s really something for everyone.

The Perfect Pajamas for Christmas Morning

There’s nothing like waking up and realizing that it’s Christmas morning. Even as an adult, I still feel that buzz of excitement as I wonder what could be under the tree for me this year. Of course, I have to put the tree together all by myself and do all of the Christmas shopping, so some of the mystery has disappeared. It’s still fun to get into the Christmas spirit and relive some of the traditions I had growing up.

Pajamas and Christmas go hand-in-hand, so wearing holiday-themed pj’s is an essential part of my Christmas morning. Yandy sent me some pieces from their holiday pajama collection that are so cute, and perfect for sitting around the tree on Christmas morning and opening presents.

Sexy Christmas Pajamas Crop Top Red and White Stripes
Candy Cane Cutie Pajama Pant Set

The red and white-striped pants are so comfy, and the cropped tank top gives the outfit a sexy touch. This pajama set makes me feel like Britney Spears in a Christmas-themed music video circa 2001 and I’m not complaining.

There’s always that period of time on Christmas morning when you’re waiting for everyone to wake up and get their act together so we can start opening presents. While I’m waiting around, I can’t help but stare at the presents and try to guess what they are by their shape. I don’t know about you, but I always shake my presents before I open them. Trying to figure out what’s inside is almost as exciting as actually opening the gift. Is it jewelry? Socks? Channing Tatum in the flesh? Detective Kelly is on the case.

Candy Cane Hearts Sleep Shirt

This sleep shirt is made from the same material as the striped pants, so it is also super soft. It also has adorable little heart patches on the elbows which I could not resist. It has a loose fit, so you can look cute and also actually sleep in it.

When I was growing up, we would bake cookies on Christmas Eve and leave out a few cookies along with a glass of milk for Santa. On Christmas morning, the plate would be cleared, but there were always leftover cookies for us to enjoy. Thinking back, I’m kind of jealous that my mom got to secretly eat cookies in the middle of the night under the guise of Santa.

Have you been naughty this year? Then this is the sleep dress for you. So much sass. It has the comfiness of a t-shirt with a more form-fitting cut. I am all about comfort, especially when I’m not leaving my house.

I just baked these chocolate crackle cookies and they are soooo yummy. Perfect for dipping in a cold glass of milk. I will definitely be baking them again in time for Christmas. What are your favorite Christmas morning traditions?
