What is Sexy?

Hello Darlings, "Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got," once said the sex-symbol that is Sophia Loren.

CONGRATULATIONS to ISABELLE and SHELLEY for winning the $50 gift certificates from La Vie en Rose. Thanks everyone for entering, and please be sure to check in next week as we have another terrific contest launching with Sherway Gardens shopping centre in Toronto!

When it comes to sex appeal, many people seem to misunderstand what sexy is! It is not about mini skirts and cleavage overload, but rather the sensual way that you present yourself. Sexy is a mind set as opposed to an outfit. To me, what is sexy is a woman of confidence and wit who goes about her life understanding and respecting her true allure. As women, we all possess God-given assets that are inherently sexy and exude sex appeal. But with so many blurry lines in our modern culture, it's really not so easy these days to precisely identify What is Sexy?

“There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.” — Audrey Hepburn

In my view, what is sexy in our current day is a mix of confidence and respect — a woman who has the confidence to be herself and have enough respect for herself not to abuse her charms. It is not sexy to flaunt yourself and it is definitely not tasteful to show too much. So embrace your sexy and show the world the woman that you are with your confidence!

To help you bring out your inner sex-goddess, La Vie En Rose and WithLoveGabrielle.com would like to offer two $50 giftcards to spend at any La Vie En Rose  store in Canada. To find a store near you, click here!
