September 2011 Archives
There is nothing worse than having to wear bras and underwear that make you feel less than sexy when you're pregnant or nursing. It's a time in your life when you should be embracing your body and enjoying your growing belly. So it's about time someone (other than us!) realized it too. Thank goodness for Cake Lingerie which has created a sexy line of undergarments for expecting and nursing moms. Included in the line are bras, underwear, pajamas, nursing tanks and robes. Available in sizes 32B to 40M and XS to XL, the line fits all shapes and sizes and will keep you looking and feeling pretty for nine months and beyond!
In case the weather hasn't made it evident yet, it's fall. Those crisp mornings at the bus stop will soon turn downright cold, meaning it's high time to shop for kids' outerwear. If the form is as important as the function, you'll be glad to know that practically anything goes this season...as long as it has faux fur accents. From military-inspired styles to hooded fair isle vests, just a little faux fur goes a long way for boys or girls. And the trim often adds an extra degree of warmth, making faux fur-trimmed jackets, coats and vests a best-buy for the long, cold winter months ahead.
They always say you can tell how old someone is by their hands. Don't be hiding behind chewed up naked nails this fall season when you could really use them to your style advantage. With fall's hot nail color trends being dark blues and greens, deep rust reds and purples and for those that don't want a bright color even pretty beige, paint them often and keep them looking pretty. Even if you don't do your own nails, grab a bottle or two and take them with you to the nail salon. After all, you don't want to be the one at the PTA meeting with the "old" hands!
Pregnant? Try one of these!
From chunky sweaters to luxe faux fur, fall 2011 is all about texture...right down to your hosiery. And as trends go, it couldn't be easier to adopt this look. You're wearing socks anyway, so pick a truly great pair and let them peek above your favorite pair of boots! The trick is proportion for the perfect amount of slouch. Knee-high boot styles call for over-the-knee socks; ankle boots look best with mid-calf-height boot socks. Once you master that, the sky's the limit. Riding boots, ankle boots, moto boots...go ahead and put a sock in it this season!
Boots are the best accessory of the fall season because they look great on everyone -- especially moms. Boots can make any outfit look pulled together and effortlessly chic without a second thought. That's why this season, I'm loving the ankle wedge boot trend. Much easier to run after tots in than high heels, the ankle wedge boot looks fantastic with jeans and a sweater or a dress and tights. Go for a suede lace-up style in grey to really be on-trend or go for something much more classic like the cowboy-esque pull-on ankle bootie!
