Wear The Stripes!

You've been persuaded not to wear horizontal stripes because they say it makes you look bigger than you are, but you LOVE stripes....all kinds of stripes! Have I got the look for you. This dress from French Connection gives an interesting illusion. You can see that because it has a different set of stripes down the middle, it would actually make you look thinner. If you're going shopping soon, look for this type of look and get away with it! Or just click here to buy it from French Connection.

Mom Pant Special!

I went to the zoo the other day with my husband and kids on a very special day. It was "mom pants day", okay so maybe it was just "free day" at the zoo (which is why I went of course) and every mom in town was there. I saw a plethora of mom pants and so I couldn't resist but bring back one of the classic styles to life again. Especially the classic SNL mom pant commercial! By the way, in case you're one of those who think that if you don't wear this style the only alternative is to wear low-rider pants, think again and see below.

And of course, the pictures of the day!

The Grand Finale:

Mom Pant Definition: Too high, too tight makes the bum look big
Suggestion's for those of us with the mom pant problem, here's how to wear pants:

1. Buy stretch
2. Get pants with back pockets not too high and not too low.
3. Wear dark colors
4. Don't wear heavy stitching or decorations on the backside.

The best pant/jean out there is by far the Lucky Brand Rider jeans for about $89 at Macy's. Get em' you'll love em'.
This is a really great site also for custom feel and designed jeans: Indi Denim or click the picture below.
