Who is Belle Boudoir? Belle Boudoir is a Chicago based company that offers a complete boudoir shopping and photography experience that includes lingerie, makeup and photo sessions. They specialize in bringing you the Ultimate Boudoir Party for groups of 10 or more. Guests of their premier boudoir parties will leave feeling beautiful, sexy and confident. Along with the launch of their Spring line, Belle Boudoir now has a new fantastic location inside of Ven Sherrod's Photography Studio, 1906 ½ South Halsted, Chicago, IL.
When I arrived to the location, I did not know what to expect. In this neighborhood of Pilsen, the buildings and warehouses in the area may look the same on the outside, but the insides are as unique as the artists who create in these spaces. I was greeted by soft music, dim lighting and high ceilings when the hostess caught my attention. I was then directed by the Belle herself, to get to my designated location to be styled and dressed. I quickly set up a promotion space for The Meow University and walked down to the lower level into my boudoir fantasy. Filling the room was a sea of curves, beautiful skin of all tones, hair of different textures and styles. There was a model there to represent every woman.
The show started with the first MC Dawn Randi Knight, radio personality of Chicago's Soul 106.3 FM. The models came out with combinations of satins, lace, and yes, feathers, in a variety of baby dolls, corsets, and gowns to warm up the crowd. The fantasy creations were well received when we took an intermission, mingled and shopped in the upper level of the loft.
Now I was styled by Robbin of Divine Sole Boutique who's Spring line was also featured in the show. I was dressed in striped tank maxi dress with a key hole back in yellow, black, green and cream. It flowed, it was comfortable, and it showed off my favorites... Ass and cleavage!
The second half had pieces with even more EDGE. The models came out and had fun with the crowd cracking whips and smacking paddles. There were a few pieces in leopard print and leather that were definitely something to meow at. Needless to say I had a ball describing these pieces.
Do some spring cleaning, throw out the old granny panties and in with the new must haves for every vixen. Check out Belle Boudoir Fine Lingerie and Photography. You can shop with her at Ven Sherrod Photography Studio. You can even book you own private boudoir party at the studio or at your home. Either way Belle would love to be your escort to reinventing sexy.
