MOMMYHOOD: Hot Mamma stores make moms feel hot
I had the pleasure of being invited to a wine and cheese private party at a wonderful boutique called "Hot Mamma". Now, if you have read my previous posts, you know that I am a bargain shopper-Target and thrift stores have been my MO this year. I was ambivalent about going to this store. But I was talked into going to this store event because of the supposed quality and style of the clothes, working with a stylist for free-as well as the 15% off any purchase for the evening.
I have to admit, I was very impressed with the store and the help. The stylists were fun and helpful. Once they got your body shape down and your personal style, they really helped you look fabulous! I had never worked with a stylist before, and it was really fun and educational. They pulled things off the rack for me to try on that I never would have picked myself, but after putting it on-fell in love with. The clothes were of excellent quality and were very hip and different. Their philosophy of "just because you are a mom doesn't mean you need to let yourself go" really comes through with the variety of clothes they carry. According to their site, the store was created as "an upscale boutique that nurtures, encourages, and supports mothers while offering only the most contemporary clothing to the fashion-forward mom."
They have a special little area to occupy your kids if you need to bring them, making the store very mom-friendly. They also have a maternity section in the back for moms-to-be with way hip maternity clothes. They do have stores through out the country, and you can also buy things online at http://www.shopmama.com. You can also follow a slew of various blogs through the site of sponsored "mamma" blogs that you may find interesting.
SO if you want to feel "HOT" and pretty, take a look at what Hot Mamma can offer you. Even splurging on a sweater or top that makes you feel special can really turn your day around!
