Hey Loves! Even knowing I’ve had my second dose of Pfizer and have hit the point where I’ve got antibodies – I have to say my anxiety about leaving the house was still in full effect. With that being said I was determined to not let fear hold me back. So I found the fabulous Mone’t Ha-Sidi located at Sector 7 Salon (who happens to be fully vaccinated as well) and headed out.
First off, the salon is uberly cute! Mostly concrete and chrome/metal work with a definite sci-fi theme. From the Star Wars collectibles and metal cutouts, to the galaxy paint job in the wash room and the Harry Potter bathroom this salon has a unique appeal that I personally love! I’m a huge Star Wars nerd so felt at home lol.
Mone’t is absolutely a wonderful soul and felt comfortable with her immediately. Now because I wanted a fresh start we went with a more ginger hue – something close to natural so it would easier to maintain. We started the process and while we waited we enjoyed a little Mario cart in the Salons Game Room.
I couldn’t have been more pleased with how this color came out, I’ve been dreaming about this color change for years and Mone’t truly brought that change to a reality!!
Annnnnd the reveal!!!
I truly wasn’t expecting the amount of emotions this hair cut and color change would bring on, on top of interacting with other adults outside of my pod (all vaccinated including myself) for the first time in person (we where all masked up the entire time as well) since the pandemic struck. It was liberating, heart wrenching, and utterly joyous to be able to engage in conversation and just be in the presence of others.
Overall, the location is Amazing. Mone’t is GENIUS and I can’t wait to go back!
Hey Loves! So excited for this segment of Fashion Feature with Adore Me! Adore Me is one of the first brands to offer extended sizing across all their products, and sell a wide range of products in a very wide range of styles and colors. From loungewear to lingerie, sleep to swim – A.M. has a little something for everyone!
One of the great things about Adore Me that I’ve found is that they are true to size, if I order their 2X I know it will fit my size 20 perfectly every time! Top quality fabrics let you know that you aren’t wearing something cheap, and the fabrics they choose usually feel luxurious and comfy! I’ve yet to get something from AM that has been disappointing and I’ve never had to return anything for not fitting right or being low quality.
So excited to share this brand new ELOQUII try on and style session with you Loves! These pieces are fabulous, fit great and are so chic! Ready to slay summer with some flawless style?
First up we have the fabulous Peach Lift Step Hem denim jeans paired with the beautiful Sweetheart Neckline Down To Earth bold print top! The jeans fit like a dream and had room to wiggle. The top was lightweight and fit great! Loved the color of the print and truly felt comfy and confident in this look.
Second look we have the gorgeous rainbow pleated shorts, with pockets, that fit fabulously! I loved the length, how light weight and comfy the fabric of the shorts are and c’mon – you can’t go wrong with rainbow!
And the third and final look includes the peach lift button fly denim jeans paired with an off the shoulder white lace crop top, I paired with a pair of heels that had me feeling the vintage Marilyn Monroe vibe!
Oh Loves! I’ve been working on this gem for a hot minute and I’m so excited to share with you all some of my favorite lingerie brands! Ready to dive in?
First up we have one of my all time favorite plus positive brands that make custom gorgeous pieces: Bawdy Love Clothing!! These babes are body positive and LGBTQ positive and boy do they support the communities! They are great at being diverse and inclusive and I’ve loved every piece from them! I also love that each garment is made to custom fit you so sizing won’t ever be a problem with this wonderful brand!
Second on our list is Eloquii – one of the things I love about Eloquii’s garments are how well made they are and the quality of fabric they use. Now I’ve only worn their outerwear pieces but have to say I can’t wait to try out their lingerie!
Next up we have Uye SURANA , now this wonderful brand just expanded to plus and carry up to a size 2/3XL (about a size 20/22) I’m wearing the 2/3XL and am a size 20. I love, love, love, the delicate and feminine pieces from this brand! I always feel sexy and delicate, with a side of sex kitten. Looking for a larger size from this brand? Leave a comment below and I’ll pass it along! I want you Loves to know this is a safe place to discuss plus fashion ❤️
In the above photo sets I’m wearing the three piece Sheerly Nightwear Set.
TORRID is another tried and true distributor of inclusive lingerie. Now I wish they carried their larger sizes in store, but for those of you trying them out for the first time just know the fit is usually spot on and the quality is good. I like the choices and have worn everything from their briefs and thongs to bras and bodysuits and I do enjoy their consistency with their sizing. Below are a few of my favorite pieces from the past and a few new ones!
I have to tell you Loves, I have been secretly in love with all things Rihanna for some time so when I was able to get my hands on a couple Savage Fenty items I was over the moon ecstatic that they fit so well and seemed to be made with plus bodies in mind during their construction phase. The garments fit great! The thong had a large enough band to cover my lower second belly, the crop top was comfortable and didn’t squeeze or cut off circulation on my bigger arms and hell – I climbed a freakin tree in them lol so I’m gonna say yup, this is one of my favorite lingerie sets!
Playful Promises is another brand I’ve truly enjoyed testing out. The fit is great, I love the collaborations they’ve done with plus influencers like Gabi Greg and Fuller Figure Fuller Bust. The garments are quality made and for phenomal and I also love the designs. Fun and playful to flirty and romantic, straight down to a little kinky: they’ve got just about everyone covered.
Curvy Couture Intimates is another great brand I’ve had the honor of working with! I enjoyed the fit and patterns, the fabric choices are just gorgeous and I loved the attention to detail this brand pays. Below I’m featured wearing their crochet bra, push up strapless bra, garter belt, and thong. Each item fit me to perfection and was also comfortable to wear. The support my Dd’s got from the strapless bra was nothing short of a miracle! I truly love and enjoy the garments this brand produces.
Leading Lady Bras is a brand that has been been dedicated for over 78 years to providing quality undergarments that are thoughtfully designed for fit, comfort, and support! The quality of each garment I’ve tried has been above and beyond wonderful. Below I’m featured wearing the front closure and underwire free racerback bra, purple underwire bra and the matching white brief and bra set.

TomBoyX is one of the most size and gender inclusive brand I’ve ever come across and have had the pleasure of working with. They carry up to a size 4X (waist 46-48” and hips 55-56) and are very human agenda. They embrace and uplift all walks of life while showing incredible inclusivity in their campaigns. Below I’m featured wearing several of their undergarments as well as their outerwear and jammy pieces.
Solstice Intimates is another brand that is starting to include plus sizes and I couldn’t be mode excited! Their innovative designs and embroidery details are to die for! Just check out a couple of their pieces below!

My Loves, have I got something wonderful to share with you: Brassy Bra! This fabulous boob tape works wonders for my cleavage so I had to share it with you all, you know – so you Loves can make that cleavage utterly fabulous without the aid of an underwire bra while still giving a natural look with the support of Brassy Bra.
I also want to add that I also go without a bra in public as well and there is nothing wrong with that either – it’s still gorgeous and so is your chest without the aid of undergarments.
Now, A little about Brassy Bra: they are a 97% cotton blend that breathes and moves with you, while also lifting and supporting, comes in sizes A-DDDD (European A-G), and the adhesive is heat activated by body temp which allows you the freedom to move without the adhesive coming off. Brassy Bra also offers five different skin shades for you to choose from.
If you watched the video above you’ll see application is oh so easy! First step place the pastie over the nipple area – to protect from the sticky adhesive, second step remove the bottom sticker and place to desired place on the bottom of the breast, third secure and then remove the second sticker tab and place where desired cleavage effect is perfect for you – repeat for the other side and you are all set!
Brassy Bra recommends not wearing for longer than eight hours. Other pluses include its pretty much invisible under clothing (including mesh – I tried it), it’s dance and waterproof, disposable and the kit comes with three sets! You can also customize but cutting to your specific fit although they do say that more than half an inch or an inch and it can loose it’s desired effect.
While wearing Brassy Bra I felt almost like I had on two giant bandaids but not in a bad way. There was no pulling of skin, the fabric was light weight, it made my boobs look fabulous, and movement was never an issue.
Removing was also super simple! Following the Brassy suggestion I used vegetable oil to slowly take off the adhesive and then took a hot shower. There was no pain, no redness, and besides light imprints from the adhesive pattern no visible marks left behind.
Make sure to check back Friday 2/7/2020 for images from my latest shoot where I’ve styled three special looks around Brassy Bra! As always Loves, thank you for taking the time out of your day to spend a little time with over here.
