When Grandma visits

Happy day after Mother's Day to all the mamas out there. I hope your day was filled with roses and a limited amount of poop filled diapers.

I was very lucky to have my mom visiting us from Florida this year. The kids love when Mimi (what they call her) visits. The suitcase will come filled with toys and treats and sometimes even clothes for Mimi to wear during her visit. The week is filled with snuggles and fun, and sometimes a shopping trip or two.

*Vanessa & Mom, circa 1978

I'm lucky to have an extra set of "Mom" hands in the house. The laundry pile will get significantly smaller. The clothes, perfectly folded, will actually find their way into the drawers. I've always wondered how that happened. As I write this she has already cleaned my son's room and cleaned up the kitchen. The dishwasher will be filled and emptied multiple times. If I'm lucky in just under four weeks I will find the bowls she put away in a cabinet I did not know we had. Socks will be rolled and the linen closet will be organized.

How does she do it all? It must come with the 38 years of mothering experince she has compared to my 6.5. Maybe the organization gene skipped me (but not my sister).

The truth is she is just an awesome mom, an awesome grandmother and a great friend.

Happy Mother's Day (or after) Mom!

-Vanessa

In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

Maye Musk Is Really Rockin’

March 27, 2020

On April 19th of this year, Musk turns 72-years-old and her life has never been better! CLICK HERE to read our first blog about this lovely lady. 

Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific.  Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

Let’s Look at Las Vegas vs. Dubai

March 21, 2020

I recently came across an article in a magazine titled Resident that really intrigued me. It appeared in October 2019, was written by Marvin Scott and sported a provocative headline that said, “Dubai: Las Vegas on Steroids.” Who could resist a description like that? Or, as the author says, “There are no glittering lights to lure you in, but there is an electrifying vibrancy that beckons a FIRST-TIME VISITOR.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
