Maybe I'm a little late to the party, but I'm totally loving this lace around the eyes thing! I saw a few pics in my Pinterest feed, then had to search for more. This dramatic and fanciful look would be so perfect for a glam party, or divine for a burlesque stage look. Or what about rocking this gorgeous and dreamy eye in a boudoir photo shoot? Smashing. Look at all of these beautiful eyes!
There are many ways to achieve this fantastic look:
- adhering actual lace around the eye
- using lace as a stencil to paint eye makeup through
- using a temporary tattoo with a lace design
- going super DIY and drawing your own lace design with eyeliner
Chanel made a big splash with the look on the Spring 2013 runway. Check out some of Chanel's lacey eye pics on chicprofile.com.
Most of the photos above are recent, but one is a surprisingly vintage pic from Vogue magazine. Can you spot it?
To get a better look at all of these gorgeous pics, check out my Lacey Eye Pinterest board! To those unfamiliar with Pinterest (if there's anyone out there who hasn't been completely pulled in by Pinterest's delicious eye candy yet), clicking on the individual photos will take you to their original sources, some of which are tutorials. A cursory YouTube search for "lace eye tutorial" yields many video tuts as well.
I'd love to know: Have you tried this look? Let us know in the comments. Which technique did you use? Share a pic if you have one!
Wow! We sure took a break from Lingerie Unlaced. Well, that's because we were so busy during Valentine's Day that we took a little time to catch our breath and focus on our boutique. And the web site has not even slowed down. People from all over the world have been finding us and we're doing our level best to make their shopping experience the best.
One thing we're doing is expanding our line and direction into Retro Lingerie. Burlesque and retro just fit so neatly together and we love so many of the retro styles that are available now. In fact, some of them like this black and pink number from Leg Avenue, and this retro black floral girdle from Bernie Dexter are amazingly popular.
And we're paying attention! Look for more wonderful retro lingerie like this as we shift (just a little bit ;) in this direction.
If you're way into the retro look, be on the lookout for some higher-end girdles, corsets and corselettes in the shop soon!
Retro lingerie can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. We like to think of retro as a throwback to the 1940s and 1950s. The lingerie back then were simply considered foundation garments which molded and sculpted women's bodies into ideal forms. Today, retro lingerie is making a huge comeback, and it's no wonder, this stuff is flattering and very sexy. This Valentine's Day, add a little heat to your festivities with some retro styles from Kuhmillion Lingerie.
Let's start off with one of our newest matching sets. This blush pink girdle and lace bra has been selling like hot cakes, and it's no accident. The girdle design and pink color are straight out of the 1950s and the high contrast black garter bows on the girdle and bra are like the fancy decorations on a cake! The garters, as in the past are functional and go perfectly with nylon stockings.
The complete retro outfit here includes opera length gloves and a pair of stockings that you can match with your favorite pair of heels. If you're picking this one out for yourself to wear, think about how much fun you can have playing around with retro makeup and hair! You'll definitely want to check out that link for some great video tutorials.
This retro burlesque set is seriously skimpy and cute! Not actually a retro style per se, but perfect for Valentine's Day. The red and black striped design is very burlesque and the chiffon ruffle trim is a nice finishing touch too. You can pair this little set with a fabulous pair of retro thigh highs and of course some elegant black gloves. This hot little number was made for Valentine's Day.
And because hosiery today mostly means tights and pantyhose, we like to consider thigh highs and stockings as retro lingerie. We have tons of unique styles from simple classic black back seam stockings to ones with fancy welts and patterns. You can just make up your own retro Valentine's Day look with some of these and a pair of cute knickers. Just look around and find something that tickles your fancy.
If you're putting together a retro Valentine's Day outfit, don't forget about accessories. If you take a look at the models that we used in this post, you'll notice that they all have some cute accessories going on. Retro lingerie is so much about the elegance of those past decades and the accessories really make it work. Take a look at our accessories page for some inspiration!|
We hope you have someone very special to spend with on this Valentine's Day, that your day is fun and your night is full of romance and passion.
Happy Valentine's Day!
You can make Valentine’s Day be a little bit different this year and have some fun with retro lingerie. We love retro styles, and by that we mean lingerie with interesting patterns, details, garters, stockings and fancy accessories.
Red is not the only color for Valentine’s Day, but it’s probably the most popular. We don’t want you to feel constrained, and think that you have to buy red lingerie for this holiday. It’s all up to you, and we’re sure that you’ll love just about everything in our store. But since we’re talking about Valentine’s Day, let’s look at our red, retro lingerie and peek at a few ideas that will make your evening just a little bit more exciting!
This just came into the boutique, it’s a lovely plus size red chemise with lots of lace detail and a cute bow on the bra. It also comes with a matching panty.
Looking for a nifty little gift that isn’t too expensive? How about a pair of retro stockings? We have tons of hosiery, but we think these are just right for Valentine’s Day.
First, these black cuban heel stockings are so unique and sexy with the wide red welt and backseam. These little cuties will need a garter belt or perhaps a matching set with garters to stay up!
For a slightly more classic retro look, how about a simple backseam stocking in red? These, shown in black here, actually come in red too. They’re our best seller at shows and will do great for that hot Valentine’s date!
And for a more playful look, these red fence net thigh highs will fit the bill. They feature a lovely lace welt and a much more open net pattern than normal fishnets. The great thing about these is that you don’t need garters to hold them up.
Now we’ve featured this amazing little set before. It’s a cute striped satin matching set with a very retro, steampunk feel to it. The red and black striped panty comes with garters and would make a complete Valentine’s evening outfit with just a pair of stockings or thigh highs.
Let’s say you’re looking for something even more retro, like an old fashioned overbust corset. We have this fun deep red paisley corset that reminds me of some of the fancy chocolate wrappings from Valentine’s Day gifts. The deep red and paisley pattern really make this corset look lush and fancy. You can pair it with ruffle panties or boyshorts and a pair of sexy black stilettos for a knockout outfit!
We hope you have a fun and sexy Valentine's Day!
Let’s talk about Valentine’s Day! This fun and exciting day is dedicated to love and romance. If you want to heat up the boudoir a little bit, why not give the gift of lingerie. Here are a few Valentine gift ideas for the bedroom that are sure to make your evening a lot of fun.
