Why Luxury Boudoir Is All About Self Respect
Luxury is often framed in an image dripping in gold and diamonds. Even commodities like silks, lush colors, and plush furnishings may pop into your mind when you think about things of luxury. You may think about some famously-know luxury brands before you envision any of the images above. Either way, the idea of luxury can feel outlandish and almost unattainable when you are more budget conscious.
For some, the shame around expensive purchases convinces them that luxury is not for them or that it isn’t a “necessity.” Occasionally, there is even fear associated with luxury because it feels obvious that others around will simply know how much you spent or perhaps even overspent on an item. These negative connotations around the word vanity or even the shame some feel about spending the money.
If you want to dive into and understand more about shame research and how to reframe it, we recommend the author Brene Brown. However, in this post, we are here to talk a little about reframing the luxury mindset as a form of self-respect. Luxury purchases don’t have to be about projecting a certain image. Instead, it’s acknowledging that your hard work has earned you a reward–something extra special just for you.
Changing Your Perspective
For years, luxury brands crafted advertisements encouraging buyers to show off their brands. It was assumed that outside influences would know how fancy you were based on the clothing brands you wore, the bags you carried, or even the car you drove. Next, marketers pushed the idea that luxury items were timeless and even that these items were made at a higher standard of quality.
Sure, some of that has been proven. There’s no shame in making purchasing decisions that are right for you. For the average person, a luxury purchase can take a large dent out of one’s budget. Making a luxury purchase to show off something and your successes doesn’t always sit well with some.
However, research shows that if you’re making a luxury purchase for intrinsic value, that is because it brings about an inner self-awareness that luxury purchases can evoke a stronger emotion attached to self-esteem. Yes, treating yourself is a real thing. And not in the whole retail therapy but as in taking the time to treat and valuable your purchases.

What is Luxury Boudoir?

Starting with hair and makeup, you’ll relax and find comfort in your experience. But it’s followed up with transformation.

The luxury isn’t the purchase. The luxury is you.
