Maggies Saves The (Fashion of the) Day

Maggies Saves The (Fashion of the) Day

  I can’t tell you how many wrap dresses and blouses that I own and don’t wear because they just come down too low on me to be deemed suitable for wear.  It really was a shame, and I really didn’t want to poke holes through my nice things with a pin. I have a ton of beautiful scarves too that I rarely reach for because they’re a pain to tie and never stay right on … Read entire article »

It’s a Big Deal: Kids Exclusive

It’s a Big Deal: Kids Exclusive

Deal sites help moms dress their babies and children in the latest styles for less, but great deals often come with restrictions (delays in shipping products, hard-to-understand return policies and expensive shipping). For hassle-free shopping and great deals, you can’t beat KidsExclusive.com. Unlike its competitors, KidsExclusive.com offers fast-shipping for a flat $5.95 fee and allows returns for store credit. I scored an adorable Isobella & Chloe Dress for just $19.90, which was a huge hit at a … Read entire article »

Fashion for Less: DeNiZEN Jeans from Levi’s

Fashion for Less: DeNiZEN Jeans from Levi’s

When I was growing up, jeans were “play clothes.” Years later, my jeans are among the most expensive items in my closet.  I definitely don’t want to fingerpaint with my kids in $100+ designer jeans. If you’re looking for fashionable jeans that are inexpensive enough to play in, I highly recommend DeNiZEN Jeans from Levi’s (sold exclusively at Target stores). DeNiZEN prices range from $17.99 to $29.99, which makes them affordable for most families and inexpensive … Read entire article »

Figure Fix: IsABelt

Figure Fix: IsABelt

I don’t want to wear high-waisted mom jeans, but I’m also not a fan of plumber butt.  I worry about exposing my undies- or worse- when I bend over to pick up the baby. So when I heard about the IsABelt, a clear belt that keeps your pants up without the bulk of a traditional belt, I was excited. IsABelt is a thin, clear-elastic belt that invisibly holds up gaping jeans.  To use, just adjust the belt … Read entire article »

Shapewear Solutions: Yummie Tummie Review

Shapewear Solutions: Yummie Tummie Review

 While only good old fashioned exercise and a healthy diet will get you looking as fabulous as the model pictured here, the right shapewear can make you look slimmer and sleeker. Many celebs (like Katie Holmes and Beyonce) have been caught by the paparazzi wearing Spanx. Oprah’s a fan of shapewear line- Yummie Tummie. Unlike Spanx, Yummie Tummie shapewear is designed to be seen. I recently had the chance to try the Yummie Tummie Tank pictured here. There are … Read entire article »

Yes We Can…Wear Cute Flat Shoes

Yes We Can…Wear Cute Flat Shoes

Politics aside, every woman- whether Democrat or Republican- can celebrate Michelle Obama’s preference for hip yet comfortable flats. During my single days, I would suffer for fashion in high heels. But the birth of my son has turned me into a style pragmatist. If you want to keep up with your kids, flats are a must.   So I couldn’t be happier to see a high profile woman- especially one who has been celebrated by Vanity Fair … Read entire article »
