What are you doing New Year's, New Year's Eve?

Happy New Year! Well, we're nearly there at least! We know many of you will be out and about Tuesday evening, ringing in 2014. What are you wearing? We can tell you what we would be wearing...

We cannot resist the Connie Dress! We feel like you are guaranteed to have a great time in the dress.

We love the style of this dress. The tank top style looks great on so many body types. Don't forget that tiny little bow! It's too adorable! Details like that are our favorite!

We loved the lines on the Connie. They make your body look ah-mazing! Va-va-voom! They really spice up a this simple dress! Of course, you can choose the color of both the dress and the trim. It's completely customizable!

We love where this dress hits you on your legs too. It's so flattering! And the Connie is fully tailored too! It's a must, must, must!

Naughty or nice?

We're really in the holiday spirit! All the preparations are nearly complete and we're excited! Are you? We wanted to share a dress that we find holiday appropriate! From the style to the color, it's perfection!

Oh my! It's the beautiful and stunning Jasmine dress! It's a real favorite among latex store fans. We can't keep enough in stock! This dress is the perfect latex dress. Such a beautiful fit!

The sweetheart neckline is so feminine and appealing. It looks great on everyone! And it adds something special to the top of the dress. And the halter style is so easy to wear.

This dress hugs all your lovely curves. It will fit like a glove! And the length is perfect for all occasions. Heads will be turning!

We're a huge fan of this plum color. Such a gorgeous red shade. Of course, this dress will look good in any color! It's very versatile.

Many Santa will leave a Jasmine dress just your size under the tree? Our fingers are crossed for you. Oh Santa baby!

Attention shoppers!

So, have you reached the desperation stage of holiday shopping yet? Oh, you know... You have one or two people left on your list. And you have absolutely no idea what to gift them this year. You have racked your brain and nothing! So, you wander aimlessly through the stores picking up random objects like spatulas and flashlights. Honey, no. Nobody wants any of that. Let us help you. We have some last minute ideas that will quick help you wrap up that shopping list!

Candles! You cannot go wrong. Everyone loves a good candle. There are so many good options out there. We really like this Diptyque trio set. They look so classy! And they are just a great quality candle. No need to order this online. Just brave your nearest Nordstrom!

I don't think anyone would not enjoy a brand new robe. Time to retire the old and bring in the new! Or have more than one! That's always a good idea. And they are easily obtainable! We love this black satin one. Check you nearest department store or target. Perfect for gals and guys! Kids too! Robes for everyone!

And who doesn't want a toy? A grownup toy of course! Sometimes it best to just give something fun! Take a risk and the may love it! How about this Lomography camera? It has a purpose, is playful and can also serve as a decoration! Can't you just see the joy a gift like this will bring?

We wish you well as you finish out this year's holiday shopping season! And if you are done with all you shopping, we're jealous!

Zip zip zip it up!

We have a thing for exposed zippers. We think they really add to a piece of clothing. And we love the cool looks you make with these pieces.

We're really fond of this look for in some of our pieces. Like our mini skirt with front zip! We're excited to try this look beyond latex! 

We're in love with this skirt! This such a fun play on clashing styles. The girly floral pattern mixed with edginess of an exposed zipper. This type of style is really in right now! 

This skirt is going to carry through all of the seasons. For the wintertime, we recommend some solid tights and ankle boots. It's time to try out that feminine edgy look!

Let's make things real casual with these Rag and Bone pair of skinny jeans. The zipper details on these bad boys are too cool. You're really bringing the punk look. 

Add a crop top, heels and a smoky eye look for a fun girls night out look. Or mix the with a tank top and a pair of chucks for a casual weekend look. 

This dress really encompasses a cool modern look! We love the lines on this dress. The seams and panels of the skirt really against the curvature of the body. And the zipper down the middle works perfectly. 

We really dig this futuristic look! Add some pumps to really dress this look up. This is a little number you'll be coming back to again and again.

A little bit over a week until Christmas! We're excited and loving the entire holiday season. As we count down to the big day, there are lots of fun parties and events! We we're inspired by all those fun little events this week. Check out our fun OOTW!

It's our Posh Dress from our own signature line! This style is right up our alley! The sleek look is perfect for a party or a night out.

 Can we talk about the collar on this dress? It really lengthens your neck! But maybe your worried about how your going to squeeze into it? No worries! It has snaps that make getting into this dress well... a snap!

It hugs every curve and shows off your lovely shape. As far as length, it's a good in between; not too short, not too long. It's really going to show off both your arms and legs! Flaunt it!

We love this light blue color! But it also comes in so many others! Take your pick. This is such a great basic dress. Dress it up or dress it down. That's up to you!

Stock all the stockings!

How is your holiday shopping going? We sure haven't made much progress... Luckily, we still have time! Don't forget the small stuff like stocking stuffers and little gifts for the mailman, bus driver or teacher in your life! Let us do the hard work for you ;)

We love those Deborah Lippmann nail polishes!  So many fun colors and such great quality. Chances are the girly girl in you life is going to love them too! This set has a color, a topcoat and a makeup bag with a lot of sparkle!

Socks. Kind of a boring gift, right? But necessary! Especially when it's so chilly outside! And these are too much fun. These fun designs are sure to delight someone in your life! And their feet will thank you!

Little housewares are a great gift! They are affordable and very thoughtful. And they look so cute all wrapped up! We love this little jewelry tray from J.Crew. It will look perfect on someone's dresser or bathroom vanity. And they'll think of you everytime they see it!

Now, don't forget about us. We have the perfect stocking stuffers for the latex lovers in your life! What about a pair of gloves? Some latex stockings or socks? Maybe a brand new bottle of Vividress? We're your one stop latex shop for the holidays!

Baby, it's cold outside!

It seems like some sort of big chill has hit us here in the U.S! Even here in Texas, the temperature has dropped. Might be a good time to invest in some warm clothing, don't you think? Hmmm? Okay. Let's face it... it just another way to justify buying a new pair of shoes.

Not just shoes but boots! Fuzzy, cozy boots perfect for the cold or snow. Chances are your life goes on no mater how cold or snowy it is outside. You have places to go and people to see! You need the perfect pair to drudge through this winter weather in. And look cute doing it ;)

My, my! Don't these Marc Jacobs snow boots look inviting? These have a more traditional, classic snow boot look. The insides are lined with a super warm and soft material. And outside material is weather proof! And we love the chestnut details. So classic, so cozy! Pair these with a capelet or a traditional pea coat with toggles.

We love those traditional duck boots! They are so classic and incredibly useful. They are just a great pair of boots. So, you can guess how excited we got by Sperry's take on that classic boot! Look at these! We love that they go all the way up the leg, giving you even more warmth. Finally a pair of snow boots for those of us who prefer taller boots! Pair them with your favorite raincoat or parka. What a sensible yet cute look!

So, bundle up and get out there! Stay warm and stay safe if you are facing any of that messy weather.

What a success!

After such a fantastic weekend and photo shoot, we couldn't help but feel a bit nostalgic! This week, we're bring you one of our favorite designs from last year's collection.

It's the Jezebel dress. How much fun is this flirty dress?! We totally dig this halter style dress! It looks good on a variety of shapes and sizes.

The piping adds some great flair! And of course, you get to pick the color. This dress can really be your own creation.

The plunge neckline is super sexy too. And we love the bow detail! And that ruffle along the bottom? Too cute! This dress is all about those small details. And remember that you can have this dress made to measure!

Well, our photo shoot this weekend was in fact a huge success! Everyone had such a great time and the photos are fantastic! Beautiful designs and beautiful girls! For now, you are going to have to take our word for it!

If you haven't had a chance to sneak a peek at our twitter, go now! We have lots of teaser shots. We were posting all day long on Saturday.

Stay tuned to this space for updates and fun tidbits on both the shoot and the 2014 line. Don't miss out on all of the fun!

Meet Ken Marcus!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Are you as excited as we are? We can't wait to see our new dresses on actual living and breathing humans beings! And not just any human beings! As you can gather from our other two posts this week, we have two beautiful, lovely ladies modeling for us!

So, you know the ladies in front of the camera. Let us introduce you the man behind it!

The extremely talented Ken Marcus will be shooting our new line again this year. We had a great time working with him last year. And we are overjoyed to be working with him once again.

Ken's life as a photographer started from an early age. At just 12 years old, he began studying under Ansel Adams. He continued to work him for the next 13 years. While working with him, Ken attended both Art Center College of Design and Brooks Institute of Photography.

At 23, he became the first American photographer Penthouse Magazine. After his work with Penthouse, he moved over to Playboy Magazine. There he shot centerfolds, calendars and covers for 11 years. He shot also editorials and covers for Muscle and Fitness Magazine for ten years. He was chosen as an "artist in residence" for Yosemite National Park. His Nudes in Nature series exists there as part of their permanent photographic collection.

Well, that is only a taste of all the amazing work Ken Marcus has produced. We adore the way he showcases our latex clothing and can't wait to see his work this Saturday. We also hope to sit down with Ken and learn a bit more about the man behind the lens. Stay tuned to the blog for more on that!

Be sure to check in our Twitter account this weekend.  And follow us if you haven't already! You won't want to miss out on all the fun!

Meet Sophie!

With only four days left until our big photo shoot, we thought it would be a great time to announce our newest model! It's really is cruel to keep you all guessing. We simply can't make you wait any longer!

Meet Sophie Nova! We just love her beautiful red hair and pin-up style. As we mentioned before, it's our first time working with her. And we couldn't be more excited to have her modeling our brand new line of latex dresses! We can hardly wait to put her into our designs. We know she is going to look amazing!

Sophie has four years of experience as a full time model. Her wonderful list of credits go on and on. She had modeled with Jesse Leon and Lucky13, just to name a few. She has appeared in both Dark Beauty and Belle Morte Magazine. And she has worked with dozens of amazing photographers. When she says full time model, she really means it!

We are so pleased to have her with us. We're excited to see what she brings to the table! Please join us in giving her a very warm welcome to the Latex Store community! We hope to be working with her for a long time! And please head on over and check out her portfolio. Her work is so beautiful.

Saturday can't get here soon enough! We can't wait to see how our new dresses look on both our lovely models. All of the shiny stuff is on it's way to LA. And we're following right behind it! We can't wait to get there and get to work. Our new line is really something special. We can't wait to share! But for now, it's top secret!

Oh but we're terrible at keeping secrets! We'll be sure to post some teaser photos on our twitter account. And we'll be giving you an inside look into the photo shoot right here on the blog. There's plenty of fun in store! Be sure to check back. You'll never know what's up our sleeves!

It's all about Emily!

Well, it's Monday again! And yes, we are sharing another outfit with you all. In honor of one of the two beautiful models we'll be shooting for the 7th time this weekend, we give you...

The Emily dress! One of our more risque dresses but oh so lovely. We "heart" it! This dress has some beautiful details. The frill around the bottom of the dress, the bows and the hearts that give the girls a bit of coverage. It's available in so many colors and sizes! If you want to take on this dress, chances are there is one to fit you and your style!

Emily Addison is the beautiful model sporting this sexy number. We are thrilled to announce that she will be modeling some of the 13 new dresses from our new latex line! We have known this lovely lady for quite some time. And we are just tickled to have her join us once again. We love her look. And she's just so fun to work with!

Many of you are probably familiar with Emily. She was featured as a Penthouse Pet in September 2011. She is also a two time Twistys Treat! She has been seen in magazines like Maxim, Hustler, and Taboo. And she is a newlywed! As you can see, she is a busy, busy gal and we are so thrilled that she will be modeling for us again. In fact, she'll be modeling the Emily dress (above) once again. Get excited!

We can hardly wait for our big photo shoot this Saturday. We are lucky to once again have the  incredibly talented Ken Marcus as our photographer. We drooled over all the pictures he took of our Blue Skye Collection and can't wait to see him work his magic with our latest designs.

Our new line will be available for your viewing (and buying!) pleasure in the new year. Can't wait? We know, it's hard! Stay tuned to the blog and our twitter account for sneak peeks. We love to tease you all ;) And check out the blog on Wednesday! We'll be announcing our second model. Hint, she's a redhead!

Sweat it out!

We hope you all had a wonderful Turkey day filled with good food, family and friends! We sure did. And happy black friday to you all! Have you been up since the wee hours, catching all the best deals? Or are you just getting up, planning to stick around home and wait for the cyber monday deals? Either way, sweats are in order! No shame! Sweats can be cute... we'll show you!

A sweater is a magical thing. So comfy and warm. And it covers up that post Thanksgiving food baby. We love this tulip print one. It's such a cute print! It's great on it's own. But why not slip a collared shirt underneath? And some pearls if you really want to get fancy! Sweats made cute, What's not to love?

If you are going to wear sweatpants, go bold or go home. That's right! Choose a pair that's going to really stick out. This heathered pair is what we're talking about! Don't they look comfy? Have fun with your sweatpants!

So let's get cozy, folks! Tis the season. Enjoy your post Thanksgiving weekend and we'll see you back here on Monday!

And you'll want to check back for sure! Next week, we are announcing and dedicating the blog to our beautiful models for our big photo shoot that's fast approaching! It's all for our new line. New shiny stuff? Exciting stuff! We can't wait to share with you!

Turkey day beauty must haves!

Are you traveling for Thanksgiving? Or are you sticking close to home? Chances are you have been so preoccupied by planning the dinner, that you have forgotten about your own personal needs! No matter if you're traveling cross country or just a short way, you'll need some beauty products to get you through the day.We have a few suggestions.

You'll want to look your best in all those pictures! Lets start with concealer.  You're going to need to cover up those dark circles under your eyes. You've been traveling or up late baking pies. It happens to the best of us. Thanksgiving is a stressful time! Do yourself a favor and invest in this creamy Bobbi Brown concealer. It's going to cover up all those imperfections. It's an instant transformation from a turkey basting zombie to a flawless dinner guest. You'll be amazed! 

It's a really busy week! Braving the busy grocery store, traveling or hosting guests at your home. And we can't forget about all the cooking! So in between arranging flowers for the table and fending off your in laws, take a you moment. Light a candle, play some music and paint your nails. Such a simple activity but it might just keep you sane. We recommend this beautifully pigmented polish by Tom Ford. Go for it!

Before you know it, it will all be over. The dishes will be washed, the leftovers put away and everyone laying around in a post turkey stupor. And you're exhausted and ready for some sleep! Take off the day and your makeup with MAC's cleanse off oil. This stuff works like a charm! And it's not drying like other makeup removers.

All of us here at the Latex Store wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! We're thankful for all you! Thank you for choosing us to make your latex dreams come true!

Time for sleeves!

Has the temperature dropped where you are? It really chilly out there! Wintry weather is on it's way. It's time to ditch the tank tops and opt for some sleeves. Brrr!

Have you seen our long sleeved Z dress? It's got those sleeves we were talking about! This is really fabulous dress! 

This dress is really unique. We love the little features it has like the buckle at the neck and zipper in the front. These details make this more that just a basic latex dress. It's something special. 

This dress is made of premium molded latex. It's really high quality! It's tailored to all of your curves. We love the pencil style skirt. It molds to your curves and looks so sexy! 

Keep in mind this dress does run a little large. Unsure of what size to get? Feel free to contact us! We'll make sure you are picking the right size for you. 

Is this dress something you just have to have? We think so!

Go for the gold!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. And Christmas will be here before we know it! I'm sure the holiday party invitations and Facebook invites are rolling in. And what are you going to wear for Thanksgiving dinner? Maybe you have a dress or two. But what about a clutch or an evening bag? You nearly forgot! Here's a tip. Accessorize with gold this season. It's such a beautiful look! Check out some of our favorites.

Heading to a formal event? Bring on the glitz and glitter! Bring out all the stops with this sparkly gold bag. This bag is going to look gorgeous against your black or red dress. What a contrast! It's a great way to look festive without the tacky sweater or Christmas lights necklace.

So maybe full glitter isn't your thing? Don't you worry! Check out this bag with beautiful laser cut pattern bag. The combination of the satin underlay with the subtly sparkling pattern overlay. It's really something different. This gold bag would look great with a royal blue or emerald dress.

We hope we have inspired your party wear for this season. Go for the gold!

Get the custom look!

Hey folks! Did you see our latest gridwall newsletter? It just went out this week! And we had some exciting news. Our Blue Skye Collection is now available for custom sizing!

What does that mean? Exactly how it sounds! We will build one of our Blue Skye Collection pieces specially to your measurements. This brings new meaning to something fitting like a glove! 

It's really easy too. Just go to the product page of the item you wish to purchase. Like the Carmen Dress. Select the made to measure option. Then fill in your bust, waist and hips measurements. It just so simple! And just like that, a custom piece that fits you and only you. 

Now, do allow some time for your garment to be made. But it's so worth it! What piece are you going to have made to order?

Monday, November 18, 2013

Sound the alarm!

Welcome back! We're bringing you one of our favorite dresses for the Blue Skye Collection.

It's the Siren dress! And it's certainly setting off alarms. We think that's one smoking hot dress!

We love the neckline on this dress! It's a cross over style top. That's a unique, different kind of style. And the swooping neckline will allow you to show off some skin!

We really love our two toned dresses. They allow you to personalize your dress to your particular style! You are the designer! And another great thing about this dress? There is a full zip in the back. We try our best to make it easy to get in and out of our latex fashions.

And now, custom sizing is avaliable! Just give us your measurements and you'll have your own custom latex dress.

 So, what do you say? Is the Siren your kind of style? Let us know what you think!

Dress up your tech!

Fashion and style can translate over to your gadgets too! I mean who doesn't want to dress up their tech accessories in colors and patterns? White and black can be so boring! Check out some of our favorites!

There is nothing worse that having you phone die! Well, there are worse things... But you just can't have that. A portable external battery is essential these days. You don't want to miss a tweet or text! Check out these amazing clutch style batteries by Jonathan Adler. They are so sleek and bright! And covered in wonderful Jonathan Adler prints? What is not to love?!

Do you have an ipad or tablet? Then, you know how important a cover is! You have to keep it safe. And why not look cute at the same time? We love the DODOcase! How neat! They have such a classy, elegant look. They are on our must have list!

Tablet bags can be so... plain. Sure they are protecting that precious cargo but they bore us! Tote that technology in high fashion! Yes, this adorable satchel is meant for your ipad or tablet. Sacrifice style no more. We think tablets and tassels go hand in hand.

We hope you enjoyed this fun Friday blog! And hey, maybe your tech need an upgrade. And it the perfect time of year to buy in twos. One for you and one for another technology loving friend or loved one! Christmas is on it's way!

On pointe

So, it may be a little too early to have visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads. But, it's never too late to start incorporating some ballet/dance themed items in your wardrobe. This style was seen all over the runways. We love the delicate look these pieces give to an outfit. Stick around and check out some of our must haves!

Let's warm up, shall we? We adore the delicate wraps and sweaters ballerinas adorn to keep their muscles warm. We love Bruno Cucinelli's take on the warm up sweater. It's such a carefree look. Layer this sweater with a circle scarf for a warm and comfy look. Or skip the scarf and try this sweater with a long pendant necklace. It's such a versatile look!

Now, we couldn't possibly write this post without including some pink and tulle! It's not the ballet without those two things. We have just the thing! This incredibly girly skirt by Free People. We love the layers of mesh and the basic black waistband. Just have fun with a skirt like this! Pair it with neutrals to tone down the look.

Encore you say? Well, alright. We do have just one more piece to share with you. This simply beautiful bib necklace by Vera Wang. It's so very delicate. We love the simple mashup of fabric and jewels. This is really going to dress up any outfit. It's really a one of a kind. It really reminds of of all the beautiful costume jewelry we see in ballet.

And now we will take our bow and flutter offstage. What do you think of this style? Is it something that would work for you? Don't be afraid to mix these delicate items with a more harsh, punk style. Now that would be a cool look!
