Fashion Feature: Kixies Thigh Highs

If you’ve been following along on my social media channels one brand I’m sure you’ve seen me mention, on multiple occasions, would be the ever fabulous and oh so stylish Kixie’s Thigh Highs ! I have been rocking these amazing thigh highs for years and can’t wait to share just how fabulous they are!

Let’s chat fit! One of the amazing things about Kixies is the fact they have such a wide size range – they begin at a size A meant for people between the height of 4’11-5’5 with a thigh circumference of up to 20″ and weighing between 90 and 140lbs. Their largest size is a D meant for heights between 5’5 and 6′ ft with a thigh circumference of up to 35′ and weighing between 17-260+. I personally wear D’s and they fit like a dream! For reference I’m a size 20, 5’1, and weigh in about 290lbs.

Now let’s chat styles – oh my goodness does Kixies offer up a wide variety of styles! Over thirty styles offered; from fishnet, to plaid, polka dots, to vintage and retro styles they offer it all. Recently Kixies also expanded to fishnet body suits that are oh so sexy. Below I’ve included a few of my favorite images featuring these fabulous thigh highs.

And now for the most important part: FIT! The great thing about these Kixies thigh highs is that they DON’T muffin top the top of my thighs! Now what do I mean by muffin top? Sometimes these brands will make the thigh circumference so small that it will dig in to the thigh and create this “popping out” effect that is just not comfortable and in my case creates major chub rub. I am on the shorter side but have found for the thickness of my thighs that the D option fits me best. Like any delicate item these thigh highs are no different and should be treated with care. I keep my thigh highs in their own little garment bag and hand wash them, and like any stocking use care when slipping on or off. Below I’ve included a few fun clips of how I style my thigh highs.

Any questions or comments? Drop em below and let’s chat!
Until next time Loves!

Holiday Gift Guide $25 & Under

Tis the holiday season which usually means the season of giving and spending. Don’t let this holiday season stress you out, I’ve compiled a small gift guide that won’t break your bank account

Give the gift of a happy smile – I know that when I’ve got fresh breath it adds a little pep to my step so why not try Zelimn’s Minty Mouth – for the beast breath you’ve never had! First off you will notice right away that Zelmin’s is not like a normal mint. Rather it is a candy coated gel capsule, with parsley seed oil in it, which is known to help with digestion, gut health and helps eliminate toxins from the body. The best way to see results is by taking one bite, and then swallowing! So I have to ask… Have you met your breath? It lives behind your mask. By now, you’re likely well acquainted, and likely not the biggest fan of how your breath smells. Masks have made us ALL more conscious and aware of our breath on a constant basis. Zelmin’s is here to make your breath as fresh as possible all day, because let’s face it…you’re stuck together, so you might as well be friends.

Shop Zelmin’s Minty Mouth and Use KAT15 for a discount!

Fashion Feature: We Love Colors

Hey Loves! Back again and this week I wanted to introduce you all to We Love Colors (@Welovecolors)! We Love Colors has over 50+ color options in hosiery, dance wear and more! With a size range from Small to Eight X (S-8XL)!

I was so excited to style these! I chose the black and white stripe, yellow, and neon pink in the original style of tights. Next up I want to try a few of their other styles!

Now, let’s talk fit! I ordered all pairs in the original tights design. I ordered the 1x-4x of the plus size neon pink tights, the C/D of the yellow plus size neon, and a 1X in the black and white stripes. Now, let me start off by saying did any of you notice my mistake from the above sentence – yup, your girl forget to get the plus size version of the BW stripes but don’t worry I made do and will have a fun DIY craft protect coming up featuring those beauties.

As I was saying lol – the fit on the plus size tights is AHMAZING!!! As with all tights there will be some grunting and groaning getting them on but with We Love Colors the fit is so amazing that I literally just pulled these babies up. There was no squeezing of the belly and if fit great in my large thighs – there was no cutting off of circulation and they encased my beautiful thighs gloriously.

As you may have noticed I had so much fun styling these looks for these amazing tights! And the point of that was to show that you can have fun with any piece of garment from your wardrobe. And as We Love Colors likes to say their products are for All Colorful Creatures so I let my sense color out to play!

Had to throw in a quick update – We Love Colors has great face masks that fit comfortably around my double chin and chubby cheeks, and these purple tights are utterly incredible! No muffing topping around the belly and didn’t have to fight these babies on – not to mention super comfy to wear!

Had an absolute blast styling these purple glitter fishnet tights with the purple tights for this fun and campy look! By layering a solid color underneath my fishnets I was able to make them stand out even brighter!

This next look is all about the baby blue leggings (We Love Colors) and layering neutrals.

  • Baby Blue/Sky Blue Leggings paired with black and white flats.
    -Black Crop Top Layered with White Button Down Shirt.
    -Neutral Trench with Matching Purse
    -Mask

So until next time Loves,

Unboxing with Bloomi

Hey Loves! Back again with The Bloomi – a new brand that is the world’s first intimate wellness marketplace for people with vulvas!

Founded by Rebecca Alvarez, sexologist and entrepreneur – growing up LatinX she rarely had conversations about intimate products, periods, or sex which often led to confusion, poor decisions, and infections from products used. Her goal was to correct this by crating a marketplace with a full assortment of clean products and sexual awareness content.

The Bloomi team curates an accepted approved products inventory and guarantees that all Bloomi items are free of toxins including allergens, glycerin, synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates and sulfates.

Included in my self care box:

Healthy HooHoo gentle feminine wash – love how gentle this product is.

Organic Tampons – I honestly prefer the brand I use because I had leakage issues (I have extremely heavy flows and was sent regulars) with these but still a great product!

Sliquid Lubricant – loved this lube! Not sticky in the least, easy to clean, and no funky smell!

And the GiGi 2 Lelo Vibrator – well what can I say other than wow! This lelo hits just right!

Plus Size Fashion: Lola’s African Apparel

Story time! I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Lola backstage at one of the runway shows I walked for in San Fransisco (Lola pictured below), now I wasn’t walking for Lola but loved her designs so much that during a down time in rehearsals I asked for her social media handle so I could follow her brand and show support to a local designer I loved! Little did I know just how incredible Lola and her brand truly are.

Shop Lola’s African Apparel Here

Lola was born in Nigeria and immigrated to the US at a young age, she frequently traveled back and was inspired by the elegant and beautiful clothes that people wore, she had the idea to employ local seamstresses and tailors to bring her business to life making her garments artistically and authentically made by Africans. After sharing her creations with her community here in the US and seeing the positive response Lola then created Lola’s African Apparel!

Beautiful, bright, and stunning colors! Gorgeous prints! She chooses the most durable materials, works with local Nigerian artists, and she makes sure the fabrics are washable to continue accessibility. She carries a little something for everyone – children, men, plus, maternity, and she also has created face masks! Lola is proud to be a part of building the economy and supporting the livelihoods of the African people who share their craft with us, and is proud to have her garments made in Nigeria.

Below I’m wearing the beautiful Yemi Stretch Crop Top – I have to tell you Loves not only is the print stunning in its bold colors but the imagery is just stunning! The dramatic sleeve makes my heart pitter patter in gleeful joy – the movement is just gorgeous and the fabric isn’t heavy at all!! The fit was perfect! Tight where I needed it tight, loose in the best places – my arms! I have large arms and not once did it feel like I was shoving my arm in something too snug that would cut off circulation, it felt comfortable and could have easily fit me if I had been larger. For reference I wear an 18/20 and was wearing the 3X and is definitely say if your a 22 you’d easily fit in this top as well.

Shop Crop Top Here

The first look using this top I decided to style it with a set of white suspenders to play off the small black stripe that has tiny white polka dots running through the print. I added a tight black pencil skirt, cute white ankle socks and fun tennis to complete this fall look.

When stepping out, don’t forget your mask – Lola even offers beautiful masks made from her stunning prints!

The second look I paired this gorgeous crop top with denim pants and the perfect accessory for Fall – black knee high boots.

The third look I created with this stunning crop top shows you can absolutely wear this beauty any time, any place. I was the queen of casual for grocery shopping trip but still managed to turns heads in this stunning top! paired with leggings, mules, and mask for a quick and stylish errand run!

Until next time Loves!
