Fashion Friday Tips for Buying Fake UGGs 

UGG-like boots from Circo

Let me first clarify that I'm not promoting people buy boots that say Ugg on them but are not really Ugg brand boots - that is illegal. By 'fake' I'm talking about suede boots in the style of Uggs but with a much lower price like the Circo® Danalynn Suede Boots pictured above. One might even call them FUGGs.

When it comes to little girls, they are aware of the style but not necessarily the brand. They are also not fully aware of the cost of their boots and so a mud puddle is just as fun to jump in whether your boots cost $80 or $20.

How do you choose the best FUGGs?

Here are my Tips for Buying UGG-like boots for your kids

1. Look for a sole where the rubber comes up around the edges - this will help preserve some of the suede arond the toes

2. Look at the seams to make sure they are in good shape

3. Feel the lining and the inside to make sure there aren't any strange bumps or bare spots

4. Check the seam from where the sole meets the boot. If you pull on it and it seems loose, it will only loosen more as they wear them and that will allow water and cold air to seep in.

5. Buy then early! These boots tend to disappear fast from Target and some other stores so August isn't too early!

Fashion Friday - Twin Fashion Designers Behind Sachika 

How perfect for me, a mom of twins, to highlight a pair of designers who are - TWINS!

The Sashika Twins are identical twins that have split roles and created an very unique collection of dresses and more.

I love some of the elements they use. Here are a few things from their Fall 2010 Collection

Now I'm on the hunt for more twin designers. Move over Mary-Kate and Ashley!

Fashion Friday - Modern Jewelry Made With Antique Details

These are Antiques I Can Really Appreciate

This morning I was at a local antique store called Goldsborough Glynn Antiques, and found the MOST amazing line of jewelry that takes repurposed antique pieces to create these beautiful, modern bracelets and necklaces.

Check these out!

And each one has the artist's signature tassel hanging from the clasp.

But I fell DEEPLY in love with this asymmetrical necklace. I loved the off-balance look and it reminded me a bit of the Haiti necklace from Studio Jewel that I reviewed a while back.

Each piece is unique and you can see how beautifully the artist blends the antique details with a new, contemporary look.

I believe these ran about $150 - $200 but they give you a lifetime of compliments. I want them all. So start clicking on my ads thankyouverymuch.

____________________________________________________

Raise your hand if you have NOT heard of Fresh Produce clothing?

{hand raised}

Because apparently I'm the ONLY person in my little world to have not heard of them.

But I have now.
And I LOVE them.

Fresh Produce Sportswear Looks and Feels sooo Good

Fresh Produce approached me to review some of their clothing and while the season seemed off (seems like warm weather beach wear) I agreed because I have a little 40th birthday trip planned... to MEXICO!

Oops - did I just date myself? Oh well.

They sent me...

This fabulous wrap dress

Fresh Produce Cafe Wrap dress perfect for vacationSuch a perfect dress! The style is very flattering and the fabric is lightweight and doesn't seem to wrinkle which is great for travel. They sent me one in the sangria (pink) color and I love love love. I can't wait to wear it out shopping or to dinner. It would make an elegant cover-up for the beach, no?  I'm going to end my sentences now with 'no?' because it's very international sounding...no?

 

Three letters: O. M. G.

The folks at Fresh Produce also sent me this unbelievably gorgeous and PERFECT cardigan

Fresh Produce Crystal Cove Cardigan is frilly and fun

The Crystal Cove Cardigan is lighweight, however, they sent me one in black so I will be wearing it ALL winter long! Seriously - you will have to force me out of this cardigan. It too is very flattering...no?... (I will upload photos of me in both as soon as I can but I wanted to get this post and giveaway up asap) with fitted arms but loose around the edges and the ruffle to give it that extra special 'ooh cute!' look. It will look great with jeans and a t-shirt or with a work skirt, pants, and a blouse.

Fashion Friday - More Fashion Toys for Girls

While visiting Grandma the girls are often allowed to pick out one toy from the toy store in town. I was surprised to see an entire section of toys devoted to little fashionistas. Of course Em dramatically gasped, and then proceeded to pull everything off the shelf. But not before I snapped a few photos of some fashion crafts that I think she'd love.

Fashion Design Portfolio

Little Fashionistas will love being able to sketch their own designs or use stencil designs and add accessories.

Creativity for Kids Special Occasion Fashion Kit

This fashion kit will need some supervision or works best for older kids. It comes with a mannequin, yards of fabric, and even trim.

Fashion Design Paper Doll Kit

Em settled on this fabulous book of fashion paper dolls. Easy for her test different styles, mix and match accessories, and then pack it up to take with us!

Have you found a really cool fashion toy? I'd love to hear about it!
