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!

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’!

Dress Up: 12 Spring Dresses To Love

Every April since 1839, the Friday before the Crabbies Grand National at the Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool, England becomes the fabulous celebration of style known as the Aintree Ladies Day.  This early spring day is dedicated to three things: horseracing, fashion, and fun --much like our own Kentucky Derby in May, but much more fun and carefree than the more formal races at Ascot. 

Ladies from Liverpool and beyond flock to the races in amazing dresses and hats to watch the races and compete in the Aintree Ladies Day Style Contest that nets the winner a new car and a few thousand pounds in prize money. 

What's not to love about an excuse to get dressed up and feel feminine and fancy?  Spring’s cheerful palettes and soft fabrics combine with great lines and on-point trends in this collection of plus size dresses inspired by the well-dressed ladies of Aintree. 

Bright, tropical colors, modern florals and crisp whites were the themes of the day. Even the gentlemen dressed to match in bright, bold and whimsical prints. Hemlines ran the gamut, but the number one accessory was a great smile as women celebrated a day out with friends. 

There are only 16 days left until the Kentucky Derby! I hope the gorgeous dresses below inspire you to gather some good friends, maybe even a mint julep, for our own American celebration of style and horseracing with great dresses and of course, fabulous hats!

Spring Is Here! 12 Pieces to Welcome It.

For me, my favorite thing about spring is that it is a time of new beginnings where we can re-evaluate what we’ve done so far this year, and a great opportunity to get rid of all the lumpy, dumpy clothes, heavy coats and dark sweaters. Oh, and I get to celebrate my birthday in the spring!

Something about spring always makes me want to wear dresses, preferably ones from Poppy & Bloom, BB Dakota, and Rachel Pally, spin around in circles, walk barefoot in the grass and just be outside with friends and family, whether for cocktails on a patio or at the park.

I am absolutely in love with the dusty, mature pastels many designers are featuring this year. These soft, gentle pops of color brighten your day without making you feel like a jellybean. They also transition beautifully to summer and even into the fall.  Jag Jeans capris and DKNY Jeans shorts are perfect for enjoying those concerts in the park or just relaxing as the little ones gather bouquets of dandelions and purple clovers.

Since the days start out cooler before warming up midday, I love to ease into the season with light layers and three-quarter length sleeves. The added protection from the sun is just a bonus for people who burn at the mere thought of the sun, like me!  Speaking of protection, a great sun hat is not only a fabulous fashion statement, it keeps your face and neck protected, and in the long run, looking younger for years! Round out your look this season with an incredibly gorgeous, soft pastel leather handbag, whether in a hobo bag like the one featured below from COACH, or a tote bag for the beach.

Lucky You: Great Looks to Make Them Green with Envy

St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of Ireland’s unique history and culture celebrated by both the Irish (and those who wish they were!) all over the world. Revelers as far back as the 1680s believed that wearing green clothing made one invisible to leprechauns and fairy creatures, and thus they would be saved from the painful pinches these creatures would bestow on those they could see. In later years, revelers took it upon themselves to pinch those not wearing green, just in case there were no leprechauns around to do it!

These days, we celebrate being Irish (or wanting to be Irish) with green beer, good whiskey, parades, and if we’re really lucky, attending a good cèilidh where we can do all of the above while dancing and drumming the night away. Of course, you’ll want to have an amazing green outfit and gorgeous green accessories to keep those pinches away. Why not look fabulous while hiding from mischievous leprechauns!

I’ve gathered a few great pieces this week to hide you from the wee folk and maybe make a few Irish eyes smile upon ye. Here’s to an amazing and fun St. Patrick’s Day for all! Enjoy amazing company, great food and maybe even some good Irish whiskey. Sláinte!

Bringing It In Like a Lion(ess): 10 Plus Size Picks for Spring Transition

In spite of snow currently covering 92% of the continental US (keep laughing, Hawaii, we’re still working on that giant catapult to throw a snowball at you guys), spring is moving closer and closer every day.  When it's jacket weather in the morning and too hot for a jacket by afternoon, what’s a fashionable curvy girl to do? 

This week, I’ve put together a few options that can save your sanity and your style. First off, layering is key. Building a wardrobe with beautiful "shoulder-season" pieces is a good wardrobe solution, keeping us warm but reminding us that spring is just around the corner.

BB Dakota’s fabulous Lucy jacket gives us the extra layer we need to keep the chill away, while the fabulous floral print is a subtle reminder that warmer weather is on the way. A fabulous Rachel Pally Plus dress that will transition to spring and into summer gets extra distance when paired with a great cardigan now, and a fabulous straw hat later.

Softer, more grown-up pastels keep us in a spring mindset. Try a stylish take on the sweatshirt DKNY Jeans to bring in soft color. Casual and practical outwear by Columbia will keep you warm and dry while providing a soft pop of color on the dreariest of spring days. Last but not least, great boyfriend jeans from NYDJ and more remind us spring is coming while still keeping us warm and fairly covered up.

Keep strong, everyone; spring is only 17 days away and we spring forward this weekend, so we’ll see more and more of that fabulous sunshine!
