The Perfect Christmas Day Attire

Christmas is only a week away! It’s time to start thinking about what to wear for that family gathering or whatever event you might have to attend. Just because they say “Baby, it’s cold outside” doesn’t mean you can’t add a little bit of sexiness to your outfit. This week we will show you just how easy that is with a few of our favorite festive pieces.

Outfit 1 (Feat. Romantic Lace Corset)

First up, we have one of our favorite red corsets that we think would be a great option as a holiday top. Pairing it with some classic white skinny jeans it keeps the focus of the eyes on the red. We also decided to layer on top of that, a deep burgundy leather jacket. Although, it may seem like too much by having both the corset and jacket in the same color family, it really helps create a sense of dimension to the color scheme. For the rest of the look, we kept the same warm tones with some rose gold jewelry and bag. After all, every holiday outfit needs some bling!

Outfit 2 (Feat. Charm & Lace Teddy)

The next outfit is for all the skirt and dress lovers. We paired our Charm & Lace Teddy with a black lace skirt to keep in line with the lace theme. Over that, we added a white blazer to sharpen the look. Now for the shoes, you can either wear black tights with heels, but we decided it would be sexy to throw on a pair of thigh high heeled suede boots. This will keep your legs warm but allow just a sliver of skin to peek through between the skirt and the boot. To tie it all together, we added some gold with the clutch and statement necklace.

Outfit 3 (Feat. Lame & Lace Bra Set)

For those who really don’t like all the fuss with heels, skirts, and what not, this outfit is for you. It’s all about comfort for this look. Roll out of bed and slip into our Lame & Lace Bra, then throw on a knitted sweater (preferably one that has wider knitting for that hint of sexiness with the bra peeking through) with some classic denim. To stay even more cozy and warm, we added a white circle scarf. Finishing it off, we added a pair of flat thigh high boots and a red bag for a pop of color!

Who said lingerie can only be worn in private? Paired the right way, lingerie can really add some class and sexiness. So be creative this Christmas! We hope these outfits that we have put together will give you some ideas how to make your lingerie pieces more multi functional. Leave us a comment, and let us know what are some ways you would wear your pieces! We’d love to hear from you.

DIY Glitter Heels Tutorial

Shopping for the perfect holiday party outfit can seem daunting, especially with all the crowds and long lines you’ll encounter at any fashionable retailer nowadays. When it comes to picking out a dress, you will also want the right shoes and accessories to go along with it. Personally, we, at iLoveSexy, have been head over heels (no pun intended) over the sparkling glitter heels you can find at popular footwear retailers. They come in many different colors of silver, gold, pink and red and are absolutely captivating to behold. However, glitter heels can get quite expensive and will set you back a good chunk of your wallet, which you can be spending on other items anyways. That’s why this week, we came up with a simple and fun DIY glitter heels tutorial that you can do right at home with any pair of old heels you may want to renovate. We used our Pin Up Couture Black Bliss Pumps, which worked out wonderfully to create our version. And if you are interested in using a different pair, we have many other choices in our Pumps Collection. Whatever you decide to choose, you will be happy to know you are saving by creating your own DIY glitter pumps. Wear these to your next holiday party and wow everyone by leaving a trail of sparkle wherever you go. So let’s get started!

 

DIY Glitter Heels - What you will need

 

What you will need:

A pair of high heels
Extra fine glitter
Mod Podge (Satin or Gloss Finish should do)
Sponge brushes
Sandpaper
Scissors
Bowl or plate for mixing

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 1

1. Cut a piece of sandpaper that is small enough to fit comfortably on your hand.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 2

2. Use the sandpaper to buff around the heels in circular motions. Sandpapering your heels will allow your glitter mixture to adhere to  the heels.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 3

3. This is how your heels should look after you have buffed them. Do not worry about all the white marks, as you will be covering them up afterwards.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 4

4. Dispense a generous amount of glitter and Mod Podge. The more glitter you mix in, the less coats you will have to paint over.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 5

5. Use the sponge brush to thoroughly mix the glitter into the Mod Podge. Do not worry about the mixture turning a milky pale color, as the Mod Podge will dry clear and the red glitter will show through.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 6

6. Paint a generous coat of the glitter mixture onto your heels, making sure to get every corner. Try to make your coats as even as possible.

 

DIY Glitter Heels - Step 7

7.  This is how your heels will look when it is in the process of drying. After it is dry to the touch, continue to paint on your next layer. Repeat the process until you have your desired opacity and the glitter has covered the shoe completely. We gave our glitter heels a total of 4 coats.

And there you have it! Not only are these DIY glitter heels perfect for the holidays, they can also be worn anywhere you can party! Pair them with a black or white dress for a bright pop of color or even with your next Halloween costume. The red glitter reminds us of Dorothy’s Heels in The Wizard of Oz, which would look great with her costume. Or for those of you who are feeling like a princess next Halloween, these heels also go nicely with a Snow White costume. The possibilities are simply endless, which is why this tutorial is definitely something you will want to look into for the holidays.

 

DIY Glitter Pumps - Finished2

To design your own pair of DIY glitter pumps, you don’t only have to follow along our design. We’ve seen some gorgeous designs where others decorated the platform of the heel with glitter as an accent and left the rest bare. Others added glitter to only the stilettos of the heels for an edgy effect.

DIY Christmas Bra Tutorial

It’s that time of the year again! Christmas is just around the corner and holiday cheer is everywhere you go. With so many tasks to prepare for the holiday, finding the perfect gift can be intimidating. We, at iLoveSexy, always encourage our readers to be as creative as they can be and when it comes to gifts, what’s more creative than something handcrafted?

Imagine their surprise when they unwrap their gift to find a gorgeous bedazzled bra that they can show off at parties or wear for a sizzling night in. The sparkling, multicolored rhinestones and delightful shimmery feather trim are eye-catching and reminiscent of the holiday-themed bras found in popular lingerie retailers. You can create this with any bra you have at home or you can use our Baci Maximum Cleavage Underwire Bra, which is what we used to create this. And if you’re looking for more colors and styles, please take a look at our Bra Collection for other sexy designs. The holiday season is all about having fun and spreading joy to loved ones. So let’s have a little holiday fun and get started on our DIY Christmas bra!
 

DIY Christmas Bra - What you will need

 

What you will need: 

Bra
Feather boa
Ribbon
Rhinestones
Small bows
Hot glue gun
Scissors

 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 1

1. To make gluing your  rhinestones to the bra easier, try to get an idea of what sort of design you’d like to create and lay out your rhinestones for easy picking.

 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 2

2. Use hot glue to attach the rhinestones to the bra with whatever design you have come up with. We went with a randomized, clustered design for our rhinestones using different shades of red, green and silver.

 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 3

3. After you have finished gluing on your rhinestones, attach a small bow in the center of the bra. This step is optional but we feel that the small red bow really gives it a festive look as the centerpiece of the bra.

4. Measure a piece of ribbon vertically against the bra and cut it according to the measurements. Hot glue the ribbon to the bra.
 

DIY Christmas Bra - Step 5

5. This is how our bra looks like so far. You can leave this as it is, add more ribbon or hot glue the feather boa trim against the top of the bra like we did.

 

DIY Christmas Bra

And now we’re finished! Doesn’t it look perfect for Christmas? We’ve seen many amazing Christmas-themed bras, but we must say, that the DIY Christmas Bra looks lovely enough for a Winter Wonderland. You can stick to a Christmas theme with red and green rhinestones or you can even add other colors to really make it pop. Insomniac’s White Wonderland event is coming up during New Year’s Eve and designing your own rave bra with white and silver accents would look amazing. Customizing your own bra has really taken off because of all the concerts and music festivals. And we hope this tutorial was useful in giving you some ideas on how you can design your own DIY Christmas bra.
