Moms Rock! 5 Looks for Every Amazing Mom

If you had told me when I was 25 that someday, I would be able to cook dinner (without burning anything), check homework, soothe a crying preschooler and fold laundry all at the same time, I would have laughed in your face.  Then, I became a mom and realized I could do that, as well as a few other things, all at the same time!

In the military, mom is known as the Commander in Charge of House; others refer to moms as the ultimate CEO or Project Management Professional.  Moms know where every sock, each can’t-live-without stuffed animal and each vital Lego piece can be found. Sometimes, while she’s focused on keeping everyone else organized and looking awesome, moms forget to make themselves look as amazing on the outside as they are on the inside. This week, our amazing Zappos Stylists have helped bring together some amazing looks from our great plus brands for the most amazing women of all- Moms.

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.

1. O'Neill Dean Dress

2. Rachel Pally Xena Dress

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!

2. Bailey 44 Joni Dress

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’!

White Haute: 12 Hot Looks for Hot Days Ahead

Once upon a time, society dictated that no one wore white between Labor Day and Memorial Day of the next year, except for brides at weddings. Thank goodness those days are gone and we can now wear white year round without committing a major fashion faux pas!

White in all its subtle variations can’t help but leave you feeling cool, confident and ready to take on the world; after all, in American society, white represents purity, coolness, charity and perfection.

When everyone else is wearing shades of grey and black, white pops out to catch your eye. Add some great shoes , a great bag , and finish it all off with some amazing jewelry, and you’re ready for the next White Party, charity event, or afternoon out with your friends. 

Just remember that while rocking white anywhere anytime is generally okay, only the bride gets to wear it at most weddings!

This is the time of year a lot of people get hit by the “winter blues”.

This time of year, it's hard to find people to walk all those adorable dogs at the local shelter- and you might just meet the new furry love of your life! Try something new with friends, or plan a “Go Away Winter” party, decorate with a tropical theme and sip margaritas and drinks with cute little umbrellas while blasting summer-themed music. You could even take a class or workshop on joy & happiness, or just go see an amazing comic with friends and laugh the night away.

While chasing away the winter blues, why not do it all in some amazing shades of blue that will leave you feeling anything but? Blues in bright, fun hues are headlining a lot of looks this season-- from rich, deep navy to brilliant turquoise.

Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous: 6 Looks from the Zappos Plus Runway

I love my job.

I know that is not something a lot of people say, and I count my blessings each and every time I say that. Here at Zappos, we get to have a lot of amazing experiences, including llamas and mini horses coming to visit, margarita machines in the café, karaoke in the lunchroom, and events where designers and brands come to educate our Customer Loyalty Team about their products.

When you call in and speak to one of the amazing "Agents of WOW" on the phone, you are speaking to someone who not only is friendly and cheerful, but has also had pretty extensive training on common foot issues, troubleshooting for fit, and specifics of certain brands and materials!

In November, our incredible Plus buyer, Anna, and her team put on the very first Zappos Plus Fashion Event here on campus.  Highlights of the day included meeting representatives from BB Dakota, Kiyonna, Rachel Pally, NYDJ, and a new brand joining the Zappos family in the spring, Mynt 1792, as well as a fashion show where we featured many of the amazing plus brands we carry. The runway featured a gorgeous gathering of our employees modeling some of the hottest styles in plus size fashion.

Below are a few of the supermodel styles we worked on the Zappos catwalk. These stylish pieces will have you ready to work it and look fierce well into the new year!

9 Fine Pieces to Keep You Comfy 'N Cozy

The only thing I like better than air conditioning on an August day in Las Vegas is cuddling up in front a fire on a blustery day with my dogs,Luke and Leia, a good book, and a cup of Mexican hot chocolate (if you’ve never had it, find some; chocolate + cayenne pepper= AMAZING).

What makes a day like that even better? Comfortable, amazingly beautiful clothes that fit and flatter. This time of the year, we all find ourselves running here and there and everywhere- dropping off items at a charity, helping friends haul in a tree, baking hundreds of cookies, helping nieces and nephews and little cousins choose and wrap gifts for their parents. Our time is spent in such a hustle and bustle--which means we want two things above all:

  1. To look damn good for every situation, because we never know when we’re going to run into a good-looking elf.
  2. To be as comfortable as possible.

This week, I’ve gathered a group of items that do both. I will HIGHLY recommend adding a pair of AMAZING Cobb Hill boots to any of these to keep your feet looking great and feeling fabulous.

May you all have a great Thanksgiving, and we’ll see some of you out on the road.
