Presenza’s Think Thin Tuesday!

Mommy Fashionality - Think Thin Tuesday
Hello readers!

I’d like to introduce you to Presenza. Presenza was started by Jill Homiak as a reinvention of the wrap top. Made specifically for ladies who are full chested, Presenza tops are made with a special design feature that makes them unique. You can expand the top half of the shirt by unbuttoning the area under the arm to add more cleavage coverage. The design also accentuates the smallest part of the waist. We are fans of Presenza and created the looks above as part of “Think Thin Tuesdays”. Please be sure to visit shoppresenza.com for more information about this fabulous brand!

30 Days of a Fashionable YOU!

“This year I plan to wear heels all the time (except at work).” Kerry
When you wake up in the morning and put on your clothes, can you honestly say you put thought into what you put on, or is it just the quickest thing you could get together? I can’t lie, even being a stylist, I put much thought into others style but little-to-none in my own. This year I am changing that! This year the first stylish thoughts I have will go into creating my own outfit. It’s so easy as a mother, whether working inside or outside of the home, to forget about your own style. You’re so busy dressing others that your own style sometimes goes to the birds. 🙂 Well I challenge you, take 30 days and put your style first. Take pictures and send them to us at mommyfashionality@gmail.com. We’ll post them on our page so other moms can see the new, well-thought out YOU and get some inspiration! And hopefully after 30 days you will continue being the new stylish YOU!

A Lesson From Yo Gabba Gabba

Yo Gabba GabbaIf any of you have children under the age of 6 I’m sure you’re probably familiar with the show Yo Gabba Gabba on Nick Jr. On the show there’s a song they sing to encourage kids to try new foods and veggies. It’s called “Try It, You’ll Like It!” I’m not here to convince you to eat more veggies, although some of us could definitely increase our intake. But I’m here to encourage you to try new things OFTEN when it comes to your fashion.  I don’t know how many conversations I’ve had with women about how a particular style or trend won’t look good on them and they’ve never even tried it. They say things like “I know my body!” or “I know what works for me!” This may be true but it’s not applicable for all situations. I don’t believe that every trend is for every body. But I do know that it’s not always easy to determine if a style or trend will look good on you WITHOUT TRYING IT ON. How it looks on a hanger or even another woman, is not how it will look on YOU. Too often we get stuck in a fashion box. We find what works for us and stick with it! While I do appreciate your tenacity, this is one situation where perhaps you should be a little less committed. 🙂

Fashion is always changing. Be a fashion adventurer! Try new things! If they don’t work then move on to something else. Just don’t be a fashion bore….yaaaawwwnnnnn!!!! What you wear communicates a lot more about you than you think. While you may think you’re communicating, “I’m confident and sure of myself”, your clothes may be communicating “I’m actually pretty boring and afraid to take risks”. There are so many things that would look GREAT on you if you would just give them a try! So stop thinking you know more than you do and try new fashions! You might actually find something that looks better (and more current) than what you’ve been holding on to!

In the words of Yo Gabba Gabba, TRY IT . . . YOU’LL LIKE IT!!! 🙂

Work with what you’ve got!

HU Homecoming - ErickaThis past weekend I celebrated homecoming at the illustrious Howard University (my alma mater)! It was a very fun weekend filled with old friends, parties, and other interesting adventures! On Friday evening I wore the super cute dress-turned-shirt you see pictured. I was kind of concerned about the color of the dress because I have a tendency to sweat. And no one wants sweat marks! I needed some of those nifty little things that you place on the inside of your clothing to catch the sweat, but of course I didn’t have any of those. So I had to improvise. I looked around my bathroom and suddenly I had an idea! I could use thin panty liners to solve my problem! I know, sounds weird. Some of you may have tried this trick before but I felt very proud of myself for coming up with this. I did it and it worked perfectly! I simply placed them on the inside of the shirt in the armpit area and voila . . . a homemade “sweat catcher”.

Next time you’re in a bind and you’re worried about those sweat marks, try it! 🙂
