Introducing … Fashion!

What would being a woman mean without fashion? We all have to deal with it, whether we like it or not. We have to get dressed and we have to dress our kids. And, let’s be honest – we do feel a bit better when we look in the mirror (or at our kids) and like what we’re wearing!

There are many challenges we face as moms when it comes to fashion:

AFFORDABILITY

We all need a great bag to tote all our goodies and our kids’ crap stuff in. A giant tote is a mommy must-have!

{pricey} This Tori Burch Bag (left) is FAB, but at $495 it isn’t exactly what I’d call affordable!

{splurge} The Cream Suede Tote (middle) is $228 – better.

{steal} Or this Tiganello shopper (right) is pretty great AND only $143. And there are still plenty of nice bags out there for even less!

PRACTICALITY

Let’s get real … our job is more manual labor than anything. Day-to-day mothering is not done in high heels.We want to be comfortable, practical, and still look good.

{pricey} Tod’s are are well known for their stylish comfort, but these are $395!

{splurge} The Cole Haan Driver has the Nike Air Cushion and is comfy and good-looking at $178!

{steal} But these Vigotti loafers are equally attractive and comfortable at only $73!

LONGEVITY

Kids grow. Fast. You need stuff that grows with them. Make your money stretch with these cribs that all turn into beds once your little one is ready!

{pricey} The Kalon Studio crib is gorgeous and eco-friendly, but costs $1400 – yikes!

{splurge} The Oeuf crib is also eco-friendly and attractively modern at $690!

{steal} Babyletto’s 3-in-1 Modo crib is the most affordable eco-friendly option at only $379!

In this economy, we all need the basics at the best price we can get them. And we all occasionally splurge on an item or two. We will help you identify the basics for you, your kids, and your home – and throw in a few splurge items along the way. This is going to be fun!
