3 Fun & Sexy Halloween Costumes featuring Yandy

Who doesn’t love Halloween? Halloween is the perfect time of year to transform yourself into whatever character you desire. It’s always fun to play a character for one night, and you can really get into it by putting your creativity and imagination to work.

One of my favorite places for Halloween costumes (plus swim and lingerie!) is Yandy.com. You can find anything from a fun look that’s perfect for trick or treating, to something much more daring and sexy. They even have a DIY Shop that lets you pick and choose pieces to create your own unique costume.

I picked out three of my favorite costumes from Yandy’s 2019 collection to try on so you can see how they fit and look!

The Magical Student

This Sinister Spellcaster Costume speaks to my Slytherin soul. It’s so cute and comfortable! A crop top and skirt combination is always sexy, and the schoolgirl is a classic Halloween costume choice. It’s also styled with a short, black cape that provides a little more upper body coverage. I’m really loving this deep, jewel toned green (which is so striking), and the high waist covers up the area that makes many of us feel insecure. Of course, I had to complete this magical costume with a wand, but you can complete the look with any schoolgirl or Harry Potter related accessories. This costume is perfect for a party – you can really get into character and have fun casting spells all night!

The Rebel Officer

This Officer Lauren Order Costume is so much fun! The black jumpsuit looks flattering on many different body types, and the waist cincher belt (with the cute handcuffs) breaks up the lines by highlighting your waist. The police patches are a unique touch and I love the matching hat. And I obviously needed the quintessential handcuffs to fully complete the look. The cop is another one of those costumes that lets you play a really fun character for the evening. Who doesn’t love to take charge of party-goers?

The Undercover Worker

I’m a Stranger Things fan, so I had to pick this Yandy Scary Scoops Costume. Even if you’re not into the show, a sailor costume is always a cute option. This whole look is really flirty, with my favorite part being the striped top showing off a pop of cleavage – just enough to keep it sexy. The show is still so popular that you’ll be able to wear this costume anywhere and everyone will know exactly who you are, and you can really capitalize on the character by getting really creative with how you choose to accessorize it. But at the very least, it gives you an excuse to eat all the ice cream you want for the evening.

If you haven’t gotten your costume yet, don’t stress. There’s still time to shop Yandy and get your costume before Halloween! Hurry over to Yandy.com to start creating your sexy or scary look!

4 Athletic Wear Brands You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

There are so many exciting, up and coming athletic wear brands, why just stick to Nike and Adidas? We have more options than ever before and so many are stylish, affordable, and functional. Have you heard of any of these brands? 

Pact

Pact is all about sustainability, fair trade, ethical fashion. Everything is made with organic cotton and is super soft and breathable. If you know me, you know I’m all about comfort, especially for workout clothes.

Yvette Sports

Yvette Sports makes affordable sports bras and clothing in a large range of sizes. I always struggle to find bras that fit, and this one miraculously fit like a glove. I didn’t expect a bra without underwire to be supportive enough for me, but this bra has enough structure for light exercise such as yoga.

3 Types of Bodysuits Styled For 3 Different Looks: Featuring Yandy

Bodysuits have been a hot trend lately and it looks like they are here to stay. I love bodysuits because they are very easy to mix and match with different skirts, shorts, and pants to create different looks. They are also very flattering because they hug your curves and nip in your waist. You can find anything from a basic, solid color bodysuit, to something more daring that would be the focus of the outfit. They can also be worn year-round, and dressed up or down, so they are a very versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. 

Yandy sent me some bodysuits to try out and I styled them in a few different ways so you can see the various ways they can be worn.

Lacy Teddy Bodysuit

The Yandy Edita Rose Teddy is actually lingerie, but can definitely be worn as a bodysuit. While there are sheer elements, there is also enough coverage for it to be worn in public without any worries. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece that is very feminine and delicate. I chose to pair it with a black leather skirt to contrast the femininity of the bodysuit, and they play really well together. I would wear this outfit on a night out with the girls! This teddy is a total bargain at only $19.95 and it is really well made.

Racerback Bodysuit

You can’t go wrong with a black racerback bodysuit for everyday, casual wear. This Jersey and Lace Bodysuit is super comfortable and has a little added style with lace details on the back and bottom. I paired it with black denim shorts for a look I would wear out shopping or even to the bars. This is a great staple to have in your wardrobe because you can dress it up or down and match it with a lot of different bottoms. I would love to have one of these in a bunch of different colors so I could match it with a lot of different outfits.

Long Sleeve Bodysuit

It is also great to have a solid, long sleeve bodysuit that can be worn for a casual look or for going out. The Choker Plunge Bodysuit is the perfect choice because it has a flirty, cut out neckline, but is still appropriate enough that you could wear it to an office party. It is very stretchy and the material is actually solid enough that it isn’t see through – something that I always struggle to find! I always have issues matching tops to this sequin mini skirt, but this bodysuit is a perfect match. 

The great thing about Yandy is it’s size-inclusive! Check out their plus-size lingerie for some super cute bodysuits.

Affordable Fashion Finds: Femme Luxe Finery Review

Femme Luxe Finery recently reached out to me to review some of their clothing. I was excited to work with a UK-based store because I used to live in England, and in my opinion, they have the best fashion around. I have also been very sick of shopping at the mall lately, so I’ve been looking for new places to shop online. Femme Luxe is very affordably priced, and is great for trying out new trends without breaking the bank.

I did have some initial concerns because, while I am fairly curvy, I am not Kardashian-level curvy. A lot of their clothing seems to be designed for someone with a tiny waist and larger hips, so I selected my size based on the waist measurement, hoping there wouldn’t be too much extra fabric at the hips. Overall, I was very happy with the fit and the quality was pretty good given the price point. I would compare the quality with Forever 21 or H&M, which is pretty much what you would expect and is totally fine for a statement piece you only expect to wear a few times or something very trendy. 

Cropped Loungewear Set

Femme Luxe Blake Khaki Off Shoulder Loungewear Set

The Blake Khaki Off Shoulder Loungewear Set includes a cropped long sleeve top and skinny jogger bottoms. The material is very soft and I like the khaki color. This is something I would wear lounging around the house or to run out to the grocery store. It will be perfect for the mild winters here in Scottsdale, but for now it is way too hot to wear this outside! I think this would have fit me a little better if I had a little more junk in the trunk, but nonetheless it is still a cute outfit.

Bodysuit + Leggings

Femme Luxe Abra Black Long Sleeve Mesh Overlay Bodysuit and Hazel Black Animal Crocodile Print Leggings

I paired the Abra Black Long Sleeve Mesh Overlay Bodysuit with the Hazel Black Animal Crocodile Print Leggings for a dressy going out look. These were my two favorite pieces from my order because they are very comfortable and also easy to mix and match with other pieces in my wardrobe. I love the feel of the bodysuit – sheer is always sexy – and it nips in at the waist for a flattering fit. The leggings have this really cool textured crocodile print and can easily work for a casual outfit with an oversized tee. They are also very stretchy and comfortable. I probably could have sized down with these, but I also like how cozy they are.   

Asymmetrical Jumpsuit

Femme Luxe Evelyn Black Belted One Shoulder Jumpsuit

I was most excited about trying the Evelyn Black Belted One Shoulder Jumpsuit because I haven’t gotten in on the jumpsuit trend much yet, and this one is so gorgeous! I feel like I need to go somewhere fancy just so I have an excuse to wear it, but really it can be worn for a variety of occasions. It fits really well and there are no issues with the top staying up, which I normally experience with anything that has one shoulder. The fabric is fairly thick, so it isn’t see through at all, and feels well made. This will probably be me go-to for going out this fall and winter. 

Overall, I was very happy with the items I received and pleasantly surprised by the fit and quality. Most of what I ordered is more suited to colder weather, so I will be ready when the temps start cooling back down (which seems a long ways off here in Arizona)! I would definitely try Femme Luxe Finery again – maybe something more colorful and summery next time. Now that I know how the items fit and what to expect, I would probably venture out of my comfort zone a little more. 

Online shopping can be risky, but luckily returns are usually pretty easy! Femme Luxe accepts all returns within 14 days of receipt. At such a low price point, it is definitely worth giving Femme Luxe a try! What is your favorite place to shop online? Have you discovered any hidden gems? Let me know in the comments!
