Naughty Valentine

Some people follow trends and hanker for the latest lust-have but I tend to intermittently obsess over fabrics.
I bought this 'Miss Jeannie' dress on eBay a few years ago when I had a huge thing for all things lurex.
This fabric certainly isn't everybody's bag with its often quite raspy texture but that is one of the main reasons to why I love it so much...
its raspy and spangly qualities is what does it for me :)
There is also something rather space-age about lurex that really appeals to me.
At the post office earlier the cashier asked me if I was wearing red because of Valentines if!
Roses, chocolates and champagne
 Last table booked down lovers lane
Twice the price, sans ambiance
Will expensive gestures induce romantic trance
A pricey card with a contrived poem 
Because on February 14th you have to show them
Thanks but no thanks, Mr Valentine
I think I'll just choose a different day to express mine
Vintage 20s tux jacket, 60s lurex dress, 90s mesh top, lurex tights, fishnet knee-socks, tartan  print boots, sequin beret & 90s silver sun earrings.
If you do happen to be a fellow lurex lover then I've got a stunning floor-length 90s bodycon dress up for grabs in my eBay auctions, go check it out, it's got more cosmic girl sass than you can shake a stick at ;)
I was in two minds about sharing this next pic but then I thought to myself...
"Jen, since when did you become such a prude"? 
For Valentines day 2001 I wanted surprise Mark with "naughty"card. 
This was back in the days when digital photography was still a bit of a rarity and most people (me included) had to traipse down to snappy-snaps to get their photos developed.
So I took some near naked pics wearing just some self made nipple covers and a barely there thong.
Was I worried about handing my film in?
Thankfully, the local chemist that I used didn't have an in-house lab 
so I was spared any blushes when I went to pick up my little envelope of saucy pics.
I bought some heart shaped stickers placed them strategically and the card was all sorted.
Needless to say my beloved was thrilled ;)
This of course begs the question...
If you were to become famous tomorrow, have you any reason to fear the scandal rags?
Lot's of love,

Your "racy" photo reminds me of one of my sister-in-laws getting photos made for her husband. They involved a clear bathtub and lots of well placed roses. All us girl family members saw them first and picked the best ones to make into a photo book for her husband. It must have worked, they're still going strong, 25 years later.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Damnnnnn that pic is HOT! I would frame it and hang it over my bed if I had a pic like that!! I am a Lurex lover for sure!! The 90s ebay one is freakin' amazing-- no body con for me at the moment, not when I'm 35lbs up :(
Happy fuckin' VDay! <3

LOVE the pic! I did a nude for the hubs right before my hysterectomy, so he could at least remember it was there!

I love this dress and would steal those plaid boots from you in a quick minute. I really dig this outfit! Your racy VD card is pretty sexy and sweet if I became famous there would be a bunch of naked or near naked photos that would come out and I wouldn't care at all because I think I look friggin HOT!

Now there are some other things that would give me pause but I dare not bring that stuff up :)

Olga Rani said...

Love your outfit, specially that tux jacket, looks so interesting with the dress. And your VD card is so hot, I think that is the best gift a guy can dream about.

The dress is fantastic and love the color but my fav item are the Docs! They are so so cool!
I lovehow you styled the outfil brilliant mix of textures

I love that dress, all the lurex, sequins and kick-ass boots. You look lovely at it's nice to be acknowledged in The Post Office!
Great poem, completely agree.
That photo is stunning, you should blow it up and frame it, if you've got it flaunt it and you definitely have.
Far too many racy photos to worry about. It's only a body at the end of the day and it won't always look as youthful! xxx

Kri said...

i want those bad-ass boots!!

Forest City Fashionista said...

I love the way you've styled the Lurex dress and those plaid docs are inducing serious boot envy!!
You are a hot tamale in that V-day card...I imagine it was most thoroughly appreciated ;)

Never mind hearts and flowers, that's the card every boyfriend actually wants to get. With your hair, you look like a beautiful pink mermaid.

Your '60s Lurex dress with its wonderfully feminine bow is lovely, as is your entire outfit! I love your naughty Valentine. Your beloved is very lucky. If I were famous tomorrow, yes, perhaps I should fear the scandal rags but the scandal rags and paparazzi frenzy are something I already asked, begged and dared them to do - making me the world's most famous male panty model due to my lingerie reviews. My latest post is of Valentine's lingerie I bought for myself, titled: " Customer Lingerie Review: Chantelle 'C Magnifique' Full Brief Panties". What do you think? Should I fear the scandal rags?

I reckon a load of dodgy one night stands would sell their stories about me to the papers. I love your stunning nudey photo, it's gorgeous. I also really like your tartan boots. The lurex dress with the mesh top is lurvley. Perfect combo xxx
