Green With Envy

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

Welcome back to another day here on the blog! As promised, I am back today to talk all about my green hair! Now this was supposed to be video, but I am still suffering some technical difficulties so hopefully this is ok! I decided to take a break from crochet braids and try something new for my graduation. This hairstyle has a bit of a story, so let me just start from there.

I was first supposed to have this hairstyle for my birthday this past January. I ordered it to match my dress and everything! But unfortunately, there was a terrible snowstorm so my hair delivery got delayed and ended up coming after my birthday.

You can click here to check out my GRWM Bday post for more details. This green hair would have looked bomb with this outfit! But the purple hair was just fine. 

So I thought hmm when will I be able to use this hair? I bought it so I’m not going to waste it. Then it hit me. GRADUATION! How cool and different would it be if I rocked this hair to graduation? And I did and it looks fabulous! 
You can click here to check out my graduation post from yesterday. 

Now since I didn’t get crochet braids I had to look and find somebody to install this hair. I headed over to StyleSeat and started to find some research to find some stylist in my area. I came across a stylist named Jaz who is located in Maplewood. I originally went to her in January to get a consultation and she told me exactly what hair to get, and what style I would be getting which would be a quick weave. She was really great and helped make this process so much easier.

You can click here to locate Jaz on StyleSeat. There you will be able to find a description of the services she offers, you can schedule an appointment, and read recommendations from her other clients. Styleseat is the perfect way to find beauty services in your area! Check it out. StyleSeat is available online and an app. 
Hair Details 
I have 2 packs of  Milkyway Remy Human Hair Weave Pure Yaky Ombre Two Tone installed for this quick weave. I have it in the color OTEMERALD, and I purchased lengths 10 and 12 inches. You can click here to purchase it where I did. Its very affordable and the hair is holding up great so far. 

I am loving this hairstyle so far! It’s so me, and I’m glad that I switched it up and tried something new. I will definitely be going back to crochet braids, but I’m going to experiment with this hair for awhile. I do plan on doing a styling and maintenance video for this hair, so stay tuned for that. 
More Pics! 

So, ladies, that’s it for today’s blogpost. What kind of hair will you be rocking this summer? I say t
ry something new, and bold! You won’t regret it at all! I plan to experiment more with colors and different styles of hair. Be sure to come right back here next week for two brand spanking new blogpost! The NoMinusPlus break is finally over, and we are getting things back on track! Are you following me on social media yet? You should be! My social media links are linked above, and my snapchat is BrieLikeMe.

Dia & Co ( March) Styling and Try On Video!

Hello My Darling Diva’s!

Welcome back to another day here on the blog! Today I am going to be doing a Styling/ Try on video for the items that I received in my March Dia & Co Box! If you haven’t seen that unboxing them click here! Today is going to be my usual follow up video for all my Dia & Co Unboxings. Here I show you how I would style each piece, how everything looks tried on, and what I decided to keep and send back. So enough of the chit chat, lets get to the video!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! If these were your pieces, how would you style them?  Comment below and let me know! So lets get into how I would style them, and what stays and goes.


Fashion To Figure Sasha Skirt- $39.90 
Size: 1X
Keeping? : No  

This skirt has a very vintage look to it. So I would pair it with different types of tops in various colors that give it that 1950’s look. Halters, blouses,  and even a crop top would do the trick.  I could stuff so many tops that skirt. I wish it fit me the way I wanted, but I have plenty of skirts like this already in my closet.
Kiyonna Chrystie Knit Wrap Dress – $98.00
Size: 1X
Keeping?: Yes  

This dress was too gorgeous to give up! It fits like a dream, and its the perfect dress for any event. I plan on styling this dress with colorful accessories. Since this is a plain black dress, adding some color through accessories will make this outfit come alive. 
Modamix 3/4 Sleeve Blouse- $79.00 
Size: 16
Keeping?: No   
This top is perfect for pretty much anything! I wish it fit me better so that I could have kept it. This top can be paired with anytype of skirt, jean, or pants. This basic black top is perfect because it can pretty much go with anything.

Hayden Nadine Tunic Top- $48.00
Size: XL
Keeping?: No
 This top actually surprised me. I thought I wasn’t going to like it, but I actually did. Too bad it didn’t fit. But I’m pretty sure  I can find something similar. This top can go great with jeans or jean shorts. I would also rock this as a cover up for my bathing suit. Tunics are great for warmer weather, so I will definitely be finding another one that fits. 
Kaitlin Necklace- $36.00 

This necklace is not my style, but you could definitely pair it with alot of things. You can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt, a cute dress, and so much more. 
 

So that’s it for today’s Dia & Co Styling and try on video for March! Be sure to check out Dia & Co’s website and order your very own monthly box. Click here to visit the website!
