Self Portraits

We are obsessed with the modern instant cameras that emulate the original Polaroid. Their hard-copy photos provide the perfect way to preserve your JV lingerie dreams. You could create a still life of your artfully-arranged skivvies. Or, better yet, model them yourself. A provocative partial image would make a lovely momento for someone. 

Emily at Jane’s Vanity has a few suggestions to make your photo gift especially memorable: “As with any gift, a romantic photo should focus on the recipient. If there are colors, styles, or body parts that you know they love, let that inspire your shoot! I also think that contemplating your lighting and backdrop is an important first step, as both could make a huge difference in the final photo.”

We like the milky look of old-fashioned Polaroid photos. To achieve this or other moods, some of the new cameras offer an app that connects to your phone’s photo effects via Bluetooth. Our preference would be the “blur” function! But first, find your inner Avedon with a little disco music and an afternoon to experiment. Remember, details are sexy, mirrors can be helpful, and photo-cropping is your friend.

Create a love letter with a close-up of the Sexy Rebelle Lingerie Set from Lise Charmel. It boasts lots of photogenic black lace, but also reveals the body underneath. Wear it with the favorite necklace that dangles in just the right spot. Perhaps it was a gift?

The Fourth of July is coming up. Honor a national monument by matching your pose to a segment of the Statue of Liberty. Shoulder? Arms? You choose. Perhaps a goddess-like neckline will be your focus. Display it proudly in Taryn Winters’s glorious v-neck Morganne Babydoll in black chiffon. 

Show a little leg, Old Hollywood style, in Gilda & Pearl’s Sophia Rose Gold Camisole Set. Follow the bias cut and angle down on a composition of leg and matching shorts. 

You get the idea. Enjoy your pin-up moment. And delight in the reaction, when your gift makes its surprise appearance. Jane’s Vanity has your back, or, wherever!
