    Comfort Dressing

    Comfort Dressing

    Some days, we all need a little comforting. The world is wide and wonderful in so many ways, and, as discussed with a mama 2b the the other day, it is important not to lose sight of that. 

    And to laugh and smile.

    don't sweat it, smile:)

    This mama was trying to get her head around the tragedy going on in the world around her, and was feeling like all she wanted was "comfort food and comfort dressing".  So, she was bringing on the mac and cheese big time apparently, and was in for a duplication of the outfit that she was wearing, in different colors, "I just can't seem to really change my clothes every morning, and my husband, bless him, said that I look beautiful, but suggested that maybe the shop had these pieces in other colors? Ha!"

    This is  what she wore in:

    This is what she wore out -apparently she really had been wearing the same thing for 3 days and knew that her sanity and a degree of happiness could be achieved just by changing clothes.  "Plus, my husband will know that what I keep saying is true, I really am okay-hormonal, weepy, tired, but, caring about what i look like, and changing clothes might make him believe me!" 

    And, at the risk of pushing it, we suggested a pair of the softest jeans ever, and she admitted that they were the softest ever, and maybe "real pants" in her closet would not be a bad thing, so, she added those and went home, saying that she felt like they should go out to dinner now that she had changed her clothes!

    Fashion means different things to different people.  What makes you feel good is personal, and can change from day to day, but clothes do matter, they do make most people feel better.  We get to witness this every day.  And we are thankful.

     

     

     

    Sale Styling - Wow Mom & beyond

    Sale Styling - Wow Mom & beyond

    Sales are great, and sometimes for the life of me I am baffled by what ends up on sale, at Mom's the Word and elsewhere.  And, sometimes, I'm not;) When I was in college my mom used to send me these great items that "used to be $158 and were marked down to $9.99!  Can you imagine!?"  Sometimes.  Yes.  It made total sense that they were marked down that much.  Other times, I was baffled, and thrilled.

    Our Summer Sale is on now, and moms are having fun with it! Summer is here for 3-5 months in the US, depending upon where you live.  My favorite Sale Styling options today, which can and should be worn for years to come, not just with a bump:

    silk top+distressed whte jeans+cropped cardi=fab

     

    =HAPPY MOM!

    (Cardi is optional, just a nice addition which can be worn with everything. Styling tip: do not button the cardi-leave it open.))

    Personally I am the type of person who loves finding something at Goodwill for $5.99, but also will way full price for something that is way more, but that I love.  If I pay $5.99 and wear it once, then I'm good. If I pay over $150 then I know that I will wear it for years to come.

    When pregnant, you are almost guaranteed to wear everything that you have many many times in the course of a pregnancy, and beyond-even if beyond is only for the trip back down. All of the pieces above can truly be worn forever.

    Nursing?  Throw a cami under the silk top

    -lift silk top up, pull cami down, nurse discreetly, chic-ly.

    Happy summer to all!

     

     

    Top o' the Morning...

    Top o' the Morning...

    ...and the afternoon, and the evening.  These tops just make life that much easier and chic-from 9 weeks, to 9 months, to waaay beyond. There's at least one for everyone, most people grab more than that- then grab another every time they come in.

    Love the Nicole with it's Tiffany glass-esque floral and fly-away back detail.

    Throw her on over a black pencil skirt or a pair of jeans and you are dressed. Love that.

    Mandy is the go-to summer fave of working mama's everywhere.

    Ah, Grace!  Feminine and floral and out the door you go.

    Nisha is simple, sophisticated and elegant, with an exposed zipper on her back just for added style. 

    There isn't a closet out there that doesn't love her.

    Last but not least, this pintuck detailed, button front top sprayed with teeny hearts is the perfect splash of summer.  Over white jeans for summer?  Uh huh.

    While none of these pieces are officially "bumped" they all go the distance. 

    And, while not officially "nursing", grab a MOM cami, layer it underneath- lift top up, pull neck of cami down-discreet, chic nursing achieved! 

    Mom made happy. Morning, noon and night.

    It's a good way to start your week.

     

    Hollywood MOMs

    Hollywood MOMs

    Can we agree that there are not enough women behind the scenes in Hollywood?  Roughly 6 percent of all directors working on top grossing films, 10 percent of writers, 15 percent of executive producers and 25 percent of producers are women. So, how honored were we when Star Wars The Force Awakens Associate Producer, Stacey Bissell ran in to our SF store for a gown to wear to the Oscars?  Very.

    We work with so any celebs on a personal level in LA, and the occasional celeb pops in to our SF and Palo Alto stores, and, for the most part, they are all so, well, normal and nice!  (No naming names. )  But, there's something really powerful about being in the room with someone like Stacey.  As it is with every single woman who walks in and trusts us to get her dressed for any occasion-from the Oscars to a baby shower.  Rock on MOM!
