Smart Money for Mommies

This is the time of year to feel strapped and stressed.  I came across a money saving article for parents of young children and thought the advice was timely and very helpful.  Take a look and breathe a sigh of relief from streesful overspending on the kids!

Parents - save $3,000 a year!

Virtual Boutiques

I have been enjoying the new virtual boutiques on  Boutiques.com lately.  You can take a fashion quiz and they analyze your results to find items you'll like.  Click to see My boutique.  Several celebrities have boutiques as well that you can enjoy browsing.  My favorite feature of this site is the ability to let your mouse linger over an item and it will pop up several "visually similar" items for you to drool over. 

For example, I lingered over this $485 Rag and Bone boot
Rag and Bone Moc Hi Boot in Tidal and Beige

...and the super smart search engine suggested this $79 Dolce Vita alternative:

Why, thank you very much!

Christmas Cozy

Christmas morning/day with the kids should be all about comfort, but don't sacrafice the cute quotient!  (There will be pictures taken btw).  This on-trend slouchy sweater paired with uber comfy leggings will make Mommy look great whle making memories.  Top it off with fleecy mocs if you are staying in all day, or pull on these dressed down boots to go out and brave the elements.

Gucci...for kids?

poshJlo-kids-gucci

Gucci celebrated the launch of their children's line yesterday in NYC.  The party featured mini cupcakes, champagne...(er juice) and ipads to play with. 

This picture from the party cracked me up.
Because someone had one too many sparkling virgin juice cups.

Plaid-itudes

A few of my favorites from our photo session with Delilah of Besitos Photography!

Stella and I had a ton of fun cheesing for the camera.  Pics with our boys to follow...

Toasty Toes

I am a total stocking stalker.  I have drawers full of stockings ranging from refined fishnet to wooly cable knit.  Yesterday I discovered a new cold weather stocking essential - fleece lined tights!  They look like regular black opaque tights but the inside is lined with soft, yummy, warm fleece!  I found mine at Target for only $10 but unfortunately they are not available on Target.com. 

I believe Plush created the concept, so here is a link to their fleece lined tights on sale at Singer22

It is pretty drafty at my workplace and I am so glad to be wearing these today!

Leather for All

During my firs pregnancy I splurged on a delicious L.A.M.B. leather jacket.  I wasn't even sure it would fit me after I had the baby, I just knew I had to have it!  I wore it weekly toward the end of my pregnancy, layered over dresses and legging/tunic combos.  It has been my go to piece ever since.  Now with a new baby, the leather deflects stains - I can wipe it clean with a baby wipe! 

This shot of Gisele rocking a serious bump and her leather captures the epitome of cool Momminess.
