Vera Mesh Babydoll

Vera Mesh Babydoll

Hey Babes!! I made another babydoll. *___* This angelic little number is dedicated to all you pastel loving fairies. I used a soft luxurious satin fabric & an ultra sheer power mesh. I thought about making a matching panty but the satin fabric doesn't stretch at all so that would mean I would need to adjust my pattern, do a fitting & I really don't want to haha.

Anyways, the Vera Mesh Babydoll is just like my Sunflower Mesh Babydoll. This babydoll has no bra padding or a slip, but both of those options are available on my shop. Additional charges apply. I really wanted to add cute white buttons on the center front of the bodice but I don't have any. ;__; The bodice is a cropped longline style balconette bra detailed with white elastic trim, adjustable satin straps & my signature satin bows.

Vera Mesh Babydoll

The Vera Mesh Babydoll drapes just below the bum but right above the knees so it's really cute & short. And if you are wondering, I can ALWAYS lengthen the dress for you. Custom sizing or requests are ALWAYS available for any garments on my shop. Additional fees may apply.

Here is a closer photo of the construction detail. I actually took all these photos on my phone, so sorry for the poor quality. I tired to take a few on my DSLR but I suck at photographing anything that's pastel colored. I think I might need some studio lights. 

Well let me know what you think of the Vera Mesh Babydoll. It is currently available on my shop in sizes XXS - XL & there will be less than 5 dresses made!! *___* So be sure to purchase your dreamy favorites while supplies last. And after I sew up a few other items, I am hoping I can have a mini phootshoot so you can see how this babydoll looks like on an actual model. Thanks for following babes! Keep checking back for more updates.

A Peachy Summer

Alexandrea Anissa Fawn Mesh Panty

A babe's guide to a boudoir summer:


1. Sunglasses - You can truly never have too many sunglasses. Rain or shine these babies are ALWAYS in my bag. If I am not in the greatest mood & I just want everyone to fuck off I typically wear a pair of sunglasses & put on my headphones haha.

2. Floating Rose Candles - Hell yes!! Whether you love to pamper yourself or if you & your babe are taking a romantic bath, place these in the water, light them & let them float. Not only do they smell amazing but they set the mood. *__*

3. Polaroids - Cherish every moment with an Instax Mini Polaroid. Affordable, easy to carry & everyone ends up looking so dreamy. These are my go-to polaroids for almost all my photoshoots. 

4. Magazines & a Moleskine - Not only was I featured in this month's issue of  Little Paper Press titled "Pretty Fine," this magazine also makes for a great read & source of inspiration. It features over 20 bay area woman & the oh so pretty things they make. And if you need to take notes or write down a few amazing ideas, use a Moleskine! I always carry one in my bag. I own about 20 of them haha. I am kind of obsessed but they are a definite must have for any designer. 

5. Fawn Mesh Panty - Every babe needs a great pair of panties!! The Fawn Mesh Panty combines panels of delicate lace & lusciously soft power mesh embodying your curves. Featuring plush elastic that doesn't cut in, a silver cross charm & my signature satin bow. Bring sheer seduction to a whole another level. *___*

6. Compact w/ a Powder Puff - Whether you need to touch up or just add a bit of quick shimmer, a compact with a very stylish powder puff will do the trick. The powder puff will even make a great photoshoot prop too!

Behind the Scenes: High By The Beach

Alexandrea Anissa's Nancy Eyelash Lace Babydoll

Yesterday I got to meet up with my two favorite babes, Hana Haley & @bambidoll_ for some much needed girl time & to photograph a few limited edition styles I been working on. We photographed everything at the Sutro Baths in SF. If you never been I would highly recommend visiting! It's such a beautiful place with lots of mysterious scenery ready to be explored. 

Photographing lingerie in public is always a challenge. There is always so many people in passing, staring, glaring, old prudes saying silly remarks but whatever... I just always think my lingerie is fucking amazing & it deserves to be showed off haha. 

Up above @bambidoll_ is wearing my new Nancy Eyelash Lace Babydoll with the matching thong. The babydoll is currently listed on my shop. If you babes are lusting over this daring little number, subscribe to my mailing list so that you don't miss out on my High By the Beach Lookbook launch. 

Alexandrea Anissa's Fawn Lace Bralette - Peach and Fawn Panty - Peach

Photographed here is the Fawn Lace Bralette & Fawn Panty in Peach! *___* Such a romantic duo & it pairs beautifully with my Gypsy Warrior Kimono.

Here is a closer look of my Nancy Eyelash Lace Babydoll. If you didn't notice, the bra cups are demi style vs my usual balconette bra cups. I been working on new patterns & this silhouette was my first sample/ fit test. The front of the babydoll has a seductive triangle cut out too! *___*

Lastly if you are wondering, all makeup is done by @bambidoll_ herself. She recently created a Youtube channel & has a bunch of beauty tutorials up. If you're into that kind of thing subscribe to her channel & watch her videos.

Rose Milk Lingerie

Fawn Lace Balconette Bra - Red & Fuchsia

Photographed above is the Fawn Lace Balconette Bras in Red & Fuchsia. Such a dreamy duo. *___* The Fawn Lace Balconette Bras are made from a lusciously soft sheer power mesh & delicate lace trim. The lace I use for this collection is only about 3" wide so in order for me to sew the cups I actually have to zigzag two lace panels together creating a larger width I can actually work with haha. I am always trying my best to work with what I got so if I have to get really creative I will.

For the bra straps I initially wanted to create ruffling lace straps but I didn't want them so dramatic (especially if someone decided to layer this delicate little number under a top or dress) so instead I created lace straps that lay flat against the shoulders. The back end of the lace straps are finished with adjustable satin elastic straps. 

As for the hem of this bra I recently changed my pattern so it curves more along the underbust (not shown here) rather than going straight across. As a small designer I am able to make small improvements that will allow my business & I to grow. I am always welcoming any feedback & if you guys purchased something pretty before please leave me product reviews!! You don't have to have an order number either. Just log into your account via my shop & leave a review.
