Celebrating Mom’s Individual Style

Moms with StyleFor over a year I have been working alongside two working moms. The experience has taught me that there is no one mom style. Moms come in so many different packages and each with their own fashion preferences. Some still rock the stilettos, not letting anything get in the way of them and high-fashion. Others prefer flats and clothes that can be thrown on and off; in the case of spit, throw up and any other gems their kids might throw at them. Still otDown With Mom Jeanshers are into a sporty and athletic style, for a quick trip to the gym in between pick-ups and drop-offs.
One of the few commonalities is that Moms want to look good just like everyone else.

At Shopping Blitz we have a saying around the office, ‘Down with Mom Jeans.’ We hate them that much. Non-flattering and with zero creativity, mom jeans are an ongoing joke and an insult to women everywhere. Mom’s are first and foremost women. In-touch styles, figure flattering cuts and silhouettes and the wow-factor still matter to them, maybe even more so than the single girl. Because they know what they want and have little patience for anything else. In that light, we SB style gurus dedicate this collection to fashionable Mom’s everywhere!

Jazz Age Glamour

With movies like Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby in the wings, we felt it was time to honor the real star of the upcoming film, the fashion! The Jazz Age was one of the most exciting eras for style, when the norm was suddenly outdated and the avant-garde was what even your mother was wearing.

Cole Porter summed up the phenomenon best with his lyrics, “In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking, but now, God knows, Anything Goes!” It was the dawn of fashion as we know it, ushering in shorter hemlines, gender-bending styles and above all a flair for fun. This collection is a modern twist on the classic looks of the day. A time when oxfords were king, champagne flowed and freedom, glam and femininity rained supreme.Jazz Age Glamour

Featuring styles from Bass, Hush Puppies, Durea, & Dirty Laundry, brands that have perfected the art of modernizing classic looks without sacrificing integrity or comfort. At Shopping Blitz we vehemently believe in the importance of individual style. Never wear what’s popular just because someone else tells you to. Wear what you love and exude what the Roaring 20’s were really all about, the freedom to be yourself!

The Point of It: A Fascination with Winter Toes

There is much to be said about the foot fetish, as well as its more specialized cousin, the love of toes. From ancient China and the once popular practice of foot binding, the human fascination with women’s toes is timeless.

In summer, there are many ways to show off your wonderfully pedicured feet and their luscious nail polish; from flip-flops to gladiators and classic sandals to peep-toes. Salons all over the country offer French pedicures, while nail artists are able to create beautiful pieces of art on even the smallest of surfaces.

But what to do when the days become to cold to show off our footsies? Do we completely hide our feet from the elements? The simple answer is no. The longer one is to keep them warm and dry but continue to hint to the fact that you have more to show off than can be seen.

Wear your peep-toes in the autumn and winter by pairing them with a thick pair of opaque tights, provided it is not raining, you can pull it off without no problem. I myself adore the Betsey Johnson Sitan Pumps. Not only are they reasonably priced but they have the ability to bring some joy and fun into the dreary everyday of the cold weather months. Teal or yellow, both sport a lace-up detail on the heel and the back.

That said, in the fashion Metropolis of New York we have seen the streets overflowing with another kind of toe highlight, only packed a bit differently. Dear ladies, it’s called a toe cap and it is all the rage in fashionista circles at the moment. Flats, pumps, boots and oxfords are adorned with contrasting colors or metal caps, and as always Shoppingblitz has stock in what’s hot.

The simple and classic Henry Ferrera 200-Paloma Pump highlights the toe in either orange, blue or pink. Sporting a 3.5 inch heel, they are a wonderful option for those of us who have to juggle work and grocery shopping while running from the subway to the office!

For the bad girls there are the Steve Madden Bolddd Pumps, which are a fetish in of itself, but perfect for a wild night on the town. Pair it with skinny leather pants for maximum rebel appeal.

If you are a lover of all things romantic, steer clear of the above mentioned, and opt for the Funtasma Victorian 45 Boots. With only a 2-inch heel, these beauties offer a sexy twist on classic attire, the lace-up design is made easy by a hidden zipper. Gold and black will go well with any pair of jeans, and will give you an excuse to wear 100 golden bracelets into the winter too.

The classic oxford is revived in the Bass Jolene Oxford. Quality made, leather all over, these will let your feet breathe and feel comfortable all day long. Pair with a pant suit or a pencil skirt for a Mad Men work experience.

Last but not least, Funtasma Mouse 16 Cute Flats, which are, above all, cute. Perfect for the days when you are feeling carefree and a bit silly. Leather, polka dots, and a bow… a bit much if not dressed down with simple black pants. When done right the whole ensemble can become a wonderful and humorous outfit.
