Maternity Style - 25 Weeks

Almost entirely head to toe Raspberry Beret, as usual.  No maternity clothes, as usual.  Yay!

The dress is by French Connection (Cambridge store), jeans are Jolt (ebay), flats are by Gap (Cambridge store), vintage belt (Cambridge store) and the necklace is from our Wakefield store.  Super comfy!  I'm looking forward to living in this dress this summer both before and after the baby arrives.

It was a difficult week for us here in the Boston area.  Our Cambridge location was part of the lockdown the yesterday during the manhunt for the suspected Marathon Bomber.

Today, as our hearts continue to mourn for those who were lost and injured during Monday's terrifying bombings, we also want to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who helped keep us safe over the past week.  We are so fortunate to be part of such a strong, loving community.  We are thankful.

Pinspiration - Jeweled Planter

Looking for something creative to do with all of your old beads, baubles, brooches and earrings that lost their match?  We recently  found this incredible DIY planter on Pinterest (the link is suspicious, so we'll spare you the possible computer virus) and wanted to share!

It doesn't look too difficult.  All you need is a ton of jewelry, some  mosaic cement and a box.

We can't wait to try this!

For The Love of Elastic Waistbands!

There is nothing like a beautifully tailored outfit - the kind that fits your body like a glove and flatters every inch of your figure.  Those aren't the outfits we're talking about today.  Today we're talking about the kind of outfits you change into the second you get home and take the tailored outfit off.  Today we're talking about...elastic waistbands!

Yes, elastic waistbands can be downright awful in some circumstances.  They can feel like you're giving up, like that aunt who always wears sweatpants on Thanksgiving because of the immense portions of food she's planning to indulge in or that friend you know who spends the majority of her life in yoga pants but has never practiced yoga a day in her life - but it doesn't have to be like that.  Fashion can be fun and comfortable, especially in the Spring!

Check out a few things we have in our Cambridge store right now.  These dresses, skirts and pants are all stretchy, cute and easy to be active in.  Best off all, pieces like this are fast and easy ways to help you look 'put together'.  Throw in a cute tank top or great piece of jewelry and you're ready to go!
