I did so much research for our first henley post, Mom Uniform Update: The Henley, With a Romantic Vibe, that I hated to see so many cute finds go to waste.  Especially styling a henley with a rocker vibe -- it's actually quite easy and mom friendly.  Why?  As several of our readers commented, henleys are inherently "boyish" (which...

Cool Ankle Booties For Moms

Ankle boots have been hot for a while now, but I've yet to invest.  Why?  The truth is, I just don't go out on the town enough to warrant wearing my existing collection of super-fabulous heels, so purchasing footwear for another one of these nights out just doesn't make sense.  And as much as I LOVE heels, I rarely...
Setting the scene:  My dear friend Amber, who is not yet a mom, has just finished reading my article, The Uninspired, The Unflattering, The Trends of Fall 2009. Amber: Seriously?  You said no to over-the-knee boots? Me: Well, I said they weren't PRACTICAL. Amber:  Whatever.  They are fabulous.  FABULOUS.  And I know you want them. Me:    Ok, mayb- Amber: Seriously?  Like moms can't...
  For those of you who have never heard of the Bump Wear Project, it's a blog that started in 2009 and has quickly become a great resource for amazing maternity finds.  I'm loving their Golden Rules for dressing your "bump".   Especially the "don't buy all of your maternity clothes too early".  I can't emphasize this point enough. BumpWearProject posts...
I do love this picture, now.  At the time, I remember thinking WHAT THE H$LL?  The jelly belly is completely out of control.  Yes, I am only 9 days postpartum, so a more experienced mom might excuse the enormity of the jelly belly, but as a first time mom, it was quite a shock.  There was just so...
You’re a mom now. Let’s face it, much as you may love your stilettos (or maybe just the idea of them), unless you’re going to be a sitting-on-the-sidelines, too-cool-for-school mom, you need some sensible shoes from time to time, and that includes toasty winter boots with good traction. Well sister, you’re in luck, because sensible doesn’t necessarily mean sickly anymore. We’ve found a bevy of cute and toasty winter boots, all waterproof, that fit the bill.
Yes, I know.  I trashed 2009's Fall trends pretty good in my post, The Uninspired, The Unflattering, The Trends of Fall 2009.  But the truth is, while the runway does influence trends, it certainly doesn't dictate them.  At the end of the day, stores stock clothes, shoes and accessories that people want to buy.  Which is why, YEARS after...
Honestly, I don't know WHAT had gotten into Glamour lately, but I love it.  LOVE it.  Pictured at right is Glamour magazine's November cover, featuring all plus size models.  And they look beautiful. Why all the focus on plus-size models?  Glamour ran an article this summer, featuring a beautiful women with a (gasp) poochy stomach.   She's Lizzie Miller,...
Unless you’re Heidi Klum, in most cases, a postpartum body is a colossal disappointment. After nine long months of carrying the apple of your eye, you’re left with hips that have spread, back fat, muffin top, and usually a saggy pooch where your once-taunt belly used to be. It’s sooo unfair. With this kind of blow to your self image, the last thing you need is to be walking around in ill-fitting, unflattering garments to boot. Here are 10 budget-friendly options that can be dressed up for the office or down for play dates and will be kind to the après baby bod.
Cheapchica.com, a fantastic blog that focuses on budget-friendly fashion, has a great post that is also mom-friendly.  Cheapchica reminds us that a "dressy cardigan" is a great, on-trend look for fall.She's right!  And...a dressy cardigan is an easy update to the usual mom uniform.  Just throw it on over your jeans and a tank...and voila!  Instant chic.  See all...
