LA Face with an Oakland Booty

"Oh my gosh, Becky, look at her butt...'s just so big, it's just so round!"

Bless Sir Mix A Lot for making the big booty appreciated by ALL! You must admit, there is nothing quite like a nice, big, juicy butt.
Those of you who attended the Forbidden fashion show last weekend at the SAM, were, no doubt, in awe of the models' back-sides. One model, in particular, had a derriere that defied the laws of gravity. One of my customers who attended the event (shout out to S.H.) was recently in the shop speaking affectionately about this model's wonderfully round caboose. She was saying that she couldn't stop thinking about the model's butt. She was joking that she wants to take it home and use it as a pillow. I think she was joking? But maybe not!
Yes, indeed, there is nothing wrong with some junk in the trunk. These days, it is celebrated, not shunned. So ladies- shake what your Mama gave you. No use hiding it, your booty is here to stay.

Scientific question for y'all. Are you a butt or boob lady/dude? Why?

Booty-Tested & Booty-Approved

Hipster $14

Thongs $12

I will admit to being a bit of a panty snob. When you can wear the best, you do! I typically wear Hanky Panky thongs or matching bottoms (to my top) during the day, and switch to boy shorts at night for sleeping (much to my Hubby's disappointment). If you like comfortable, cute and affordable (yes! $) you will love, love, love our new Panty Bar one size fits most panties. I am calling them "light as air" because that is how they feel. They have a snug, low fit, but work well on petite and grande booties alike. The thong is $12, the hipster (which is a cheeky fit) is $14. We just got them in stock in LOTS of colors, including black and nude (staples). Swoop in and pick a few up next time you are in Fremont!

I Love You Man and Dude Don't Buy THAT!

I have to admit something: I have a crush on my (collective) male customers. I love that my boys chat with me about their gal's habits (good and bad), share with me that they are trying for baby #2 (yay!!)--or that, due to baby #2, the mrs. isn't showing any love. Sigh. I love you guys!

I am here for you all to guide you in making the RIGHT selection for the right occasion. For example, I recently had a young man enlist me for help choosing lingerie for his wife-to-be. He thought lingerie would make a nice wedding present. So, upon going down the list of his wants, her needs, etc. it came out that this was his first lingerie purchase for her (awesome!). Then it came out that he wanted a nips-out bra (not awesome!). Here is the deal, dudes, if you are making your very first lingerie purchase for your lady, do not buy anything that is 1) slutty or 2) kinky. Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with slutty or kinky lingerie--if that is your thing, go for it! However, if this is your first gift of undergarments, you want to relay a level of adoration and respect for your sweetie, not hoochy mama slash stripper fantasy.

So, here is the truth. Buy her something classy and sexy. You can find lots of beautiful, lacey, sheer numbers that will delight you both. Better to be safe than sorry (seriously) when giving the gift of lingerie.

For y'all working on baby #2 (or 3), it is an entirely different story. You can be as creative as you want to be, with my full support.

PS Did you know that Bellefleur offers personal shopping via phone? You nab her sizes, ring us 206-545-0222, we pick and ship. She will swoon and give you a fashion show. We will give you all the credit!

Are You in a Nude T Shirt Bra Coma? Snap Out of It!

Okay, really, I don't haaate nude t shirt bras. In fact, the first bra I ever bought that cost more than 60 bucks was a nude t shirt bra. I remember that Ryan (my hubby) was so shocked that I bought a nude bra, he actually kind of thought it was sexy. Weird, huh? So, that lasted a couple months, until he noticed that the "new" bra was taking over as my daily driver bra. "Um, are you wearing that bra, again?" Yup. It's nude. It goes under anything. It's worn in. You bet I am wearing it!

Here lies the rub. It is a great invention--the nude, contour-cup bra that makes your girls look perfectly round and non-nipply under your knit shirt, top, what have you. But, and this is a big but (I know a big but when I see one), you do not have to wear that bra under everything you own. You do NOT. You just don't need to. In fact, when you slip in to the nude t shirt bra coma, wearing it day-in and day-out, regardless of your clothing, it is almost like you are on auto pilot. You don't even consider what you are going to wear under there. You just grab the same ol' bra, knowing it will do the trick, no matter what.

Never mind your perfectly good black lace bra, or your fancy polka-dot bra you bought on sale that was sooooo cute and you feel sooooo cute wearing. You aren't wearing those. You are wearing nude. I am here to slap you out of your nude t shirt bra coma. Snap out of it ! (Picture Cher slapping Nicolas Cage in the movie Moonstruck.)

So, yes, I recommend owning a nude t shirt bra because it is practical. But no, I do not recommend wearing it every day. Give your bra a break, and give yourself some variety in your lingerie wardrobe! I insist!
