How to Wear It: AG Adriano Goldschmied Cropped Jeans

They’ve been cooped up under long pants and thick winter socks for too long! We’re talkin’ about your ankles, and it’s time they get some much-needed airtime in your warm-weather rotation. Thankfully, cropped jeans and cuffed jeans are this season’s breakout hit in denim!

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite cropped denim styles from denim superstar AG Adriano Goldschmied and paired them with the perfect tops to bring out the most from this ultra-cool, super laidback style.

Wearing a distressed pair of AG boyfriend jeans? Balance out the rough edges with a feminine and flowy cami or blouse. If skinny cropped jeans is more your forte, pair it with an slightly oversized button-up shirt to keep it looking effortless.

Find the Best Maxi Dresses for YOUR Body!

We are smack dab in the middle of maxi dress season and some of you may be thinking, “With so many choices, how do I find the best one for me?” I am here, my lovelies, to give you a heads up on how to pick out the right maxi dress for a flawless look all season long.

For my busty sisters, a V-neck or racer back maxi with ample straps or sleeves is a great the way to go! They show off the "girls" tastefully, and still give you the ability to wear a supportive bra! Try not to rely on strapless maxi dresses too much unless you have an awesome strapless bra; otherwise, your "little women" will sit lower on your chest than you'd like, causing you to lose your waistline.

For my curvy fashionistas, don’t let society tell you that prints, bold colors and fitted maxi dresses aren’t the way to go. Plus size does not have to equal boring! Wear your prints, bright and bold colors, and rock a body conscious, hip huggin' maxi! However, make sure you are putting your best foot forward when doing so.

1. Vince Camuto Plus Space Dyed Maxi

2. Lysse Plus Size Maxi Dress

When you are going for a figure-flaunting look, be sure to wear the proper under garments. We big gals tend to have a little extra movement when walking, and Spanx shapewear is great at smoothing out and slimming up your silhouette. Try it under a drop-waist, A-line maxi that flatters every curve. Keep in mind that nice flowing maxi dresses are also a great option for most types of figures. Here are a few examples of awesome maxi dresses for the curvaceous!

For my petite ladies, hi-low maxi dresses are great for lengthening your overall look. With the hem cut in the front, you elongate your legs and create the illusion of being taller, even when wearing flats!

2. Karen Kane Hi Lo Contrast Hem Dress

For my athletic ladies, the more feminine the better! Opt for maxi dresses with ruffles, lace, and chiffon to soften the body and create curves.

2. Tbags Los Angeles Beaded Halter Maxi

If you are a little shy about showing your arms, look for an off-the-shoulder look or a simple short sleeve. You are still creating a gorgeous look while staying comfortable!

Lastly, for my skinny misses, you could pretty much get away with anything, so go all out! Don't be afraid to try sleeveless, printed, body-conscious maxi dresses this season!

I hope this helps to keep you looking chic and comfy in the maxi dress of your dreams this season! Happy maxin’!

Great Gifts for Mom, Dad & Grad

The next couple of months are primed to be quite eventful with Mother’s Day, graduations and Father’s Day on our calendars! With so many important people to celebrate in the next few weeks, we wanted to take a moment to round up a few great gift ideas for all those wonderful moms, dads & grads out there. 

For Mother’s Day, why not treat mom to a nice Sunday brunch and surprise her with a chic women’s watch, a gorgeous Coach handbag to replace her old one or a pretty printed scarf for spring? Just seeing her smile as she opens up a gift she loves will be worth a thousand words!

When it’s dad’s turn to enjoy a day dedicated to his all-around awesomeness, surprise him with a practical yet equally awesome gift. A pair of fun cuff links that declares his love of golf perhaps? How about a classic sports watch or a new Fossil wallet to replace that old tattered one he keeps in his pocket? For the dad who’s into dressing up for the office or just to look his dapper best, a new Calvin Klein tie should do the trick.

Now on to the celebrated grads! Congratulate their many achievements with a gift that they can take with them as they venture into college, grad school or the “real world”. A snazzy new briefcase or a nice laptop case (for their new laptop, maybe?) are both great grad gift options. Commemorate her hard work with a pretty Dogeared necklace that represents her transformation into a successful and confident woman. Of course a versatile watch is always a good option to keep the new grad in time for class, interviews, flights...anywhere their next chapter takes them!

Western Boots For Your Lil' Cowpoke

The West, the last leg of the American Frontier, home to more rattlers and rough terrain than any traveling Americans had ever seen. The women, newly migrated to the West, wore stiff, short leather boots to protect their delicate feet from rocks and the like. As the wranglers began to kick up dust in the Wild West, they found they should have taken after their womenfolk — they needed better protective shoes. A local Vaquero introduced them to the perfect shoe to meet their needs — the western or cowboy boot was great for wrangling horses, working on the ranch, mustang running, and chasing off bandits. As time turned, those boots were crafted for the womenfolk and eventually the children. Now that don’t mean only full grown cowboys and cowgals can wear ‘em! Your little folk can cowboy boots, too!

Your little cowpoke need western boots to keep their feet snug and safe. They may not have jobs on the ranch, but they are definitely active and constantly on the go. Western boot uppers are always tough and protective, like the husk of the cactus, whether they’re sporting genuine leather or synthetic.  Ain’t no secret that your little ones get excited at the sight of wildlife, especially at the mighty equidae--horses I believe ya’ll call ‘em! They’ll love to pull on their finest kids’ Western boots and mount their favorite pony or horse at the county fair.

Not only are kids’ cowboy boots suitable for everyday wear and tear, they have quite the stylish flair.  Through a variety of patterned uppers, your little tyke can create their own western-inspired look and feel like one of the big bugs. Patterns include everything from the proud American flag, to the gentle flutter of a butterfly, to the untamed ferocity of the eagle, or covert camo print. They’re sure to light up in luminous light-up kids’ western boots! Heels and shafts come aglow with each and every step, giving their western boots a little more to say and everyone can hear it.

There’s enough adornment in their lil’ boots to make Calamity Jane and Doc Holliday proud! If flash and pizazz just ain’t their preference, let them drool over the ostrich toe caps, intricate stitching patterns, and charming colors. The cutout pattern gives dual layers of attractive adornment. Even the toughest cowboys won’t be able to resist the on-trend cutout patterns of the modern western boot.

Now, you may be under the misperception that western boots are stiff and uncomfortable, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Whoever told you that can shut their big bazoo!  Western brands keep your kids’ feet in mind. Ariat® Kids, Dan Post® Kids, Durango® Kids, Frye® Kids, Laredo® Kids, Old West® Kids, and Roper® Kids boots construct their interiors with the same care they construct their uppers. No matter what western brand you choose for your young’un, you can be sure that the interior will cradle their fun-loving feet. The most common of underfoot cushioning is EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) coupled with a TPR outsole for great traction—perfect for the Wild West…or the wild playground!

Ariat  Kids brings the Booster Bed and Four Layer Rebound (4LR™) to the feet of your ever growing young-uns. Every pair includes the Booster Bed which is built underneath the original insole. As your little one’s feet begin to grow, like they are bound to do, pull out both the insole and Booster Bed. Toss the Booster Bed like a bad habit and re-insert the insole. Like magic, you’ve added another half to full size of growing room!

The Ariat Kids Four Layer Rebound is sure to keep those growing feet comfortable no matter what their shoe size. Four layers of comfortable synthetic material are united to construct optimal and superior comfort in one single footbed. Not only is this footbed lightweight and comfy, it is compatible with various kinds of outsoles, meaning you are sure to find it in almost every pair of Ariat boots. 

Dan Post Kids isn’t leaving their comfort to the wolves either. Several of their styles come equipped with the Ultimate Gel-Flex insole. Doesn’t that name just give you full-chisel excitement? The insole is crafted from supportive and flexible gel, giving your little one the full footbed comfort they deserve. Whether they’re out and about, playing to their hearts content or ready to tame a stallion, their feet will stay snug as a bug.

Not to be left in the dust are Durango Kids boots with their signature Cushion Flex insole. As your little cowpoke step into their new pair of Durango kids’ boots, their feet will come in contact with a plush footbed. They’ll be wide-eyed as foal once they realize it’s contoured to keep their foot cradled, ventilated to cool them down, and removable (in some styles) for adjustable comfort!

Whether it's something simple like saddling up that horse, minding that good ol' western heist, cooking that cacti and beef ribs, or chasing that cattle around, our great selection of kids’ cowboy boots will keep them protected for those long trails ahead!

11 Colorful Picks to Chase Away Rainy Day Blues

“Rain, rain, go away!” seems to be the most common thing I am hearing from the lovely customers who call in to speak to us here at Zappos lately.  While some people are still getting snow (and my deepest sympathies), the majority of the country is currently enjoying plenty of April showers. 

Rainy days can be dreary and a drag, putting us all into a major funk. Science has proven that bright colors not only enhance our mood, but also brighten up the moods of those around us. 

With that in mind, this week I’m bringing you a collection of bright and cheerful pieces guaranteed to lift your spirits- and those of your friends, family and coworkers. I’ve also included some great pieces of rain gear. Hunter rainboots have a very generously cut calf and the range of colors almost makes you want to start puddle- jumping like a little kid again. Hunter umbrellas solve the age-old problem of not being able to see where you’re going when walking with an umbrella. And, as always, I am in LOVE with Columbia’s outdoor gear. Pair them with amazing pops of color, and you’re sure to chase those rainy-day blues away!
