Family Picture Time!

It’s fall!  The leaves are just now starting to change colors so everyone is headed up to the canyons or into the woods with their favorite photographer (or friend with a great camera) to get some family picture shots!  Soon, at Christmas time, we will see those pictures in all of the fun holiday cards.

Use Mod Bod to help your family pictures look pulled together and keep all the females in the family looking fabulous. Here are some of our favorite ideas for family pictures:

#1 Browns: Brown is always a great color to pair with fall and the changing of the leaves.  We also like the more toned down casual look for family pictures, which is why we think a great brown top on the older girls in the family and a cute brown Mini Mod top with lace for the littles ones would make for a fabulous family picture.

#2 Dressier: If you wanted to go for a more dressier look, you need to make sure that everyone is comfortable. That is why we recommend our great skirts.  You still FEEL comfortable but do look quite a bit dressier. We have an adorable Mini Mod skirt with a matching headband that will go great with the adult skirts we have in our line. The skirts don’t have to match exactly.  Sometimes a bit of contrast makes for a more interesting picture!
#3 Weddings: Sometimes people take advantage of having everyone in one place and looking their bests at weddings. They take an extra few pictures to pass off as that year’s family picture! We love seeing our skirts used in the wedding party line. You can make them match your colors in either a casual or super fancy way and every single size looks great in our skirts. Even those women that are not officially in the wedding line but that would be in the family picture can pick up the same skirt and a make a look of their own.
Good luck with your latest family pictures.  Don’t forget to use Mod Bod to help make them fabulous!

Thursday’s Economy Corner–Minimod Long Sleeve

The Minimod Long Sleeve comes in these beautiful colors:
The Minimod Long Sleeve is a perfect item to feature right now for dressing your kids this fall & winter season!
The reason it is perfect for the Economy Corner is that it is so VERSATILE.  The quality lasts forever and I have found that when I buy just one size up, it fits my child for at least 18 months. Very worth the $17.95!
  • Use the long sleeve on its own.  It is a durable and very warm shirt for your girls to wear when you send them to school or out to play with friends.
  • Get more wear out of their spring dresses by layering this underneath and adding some warm tights. They have their favorite dresses.  Now they can wear them even longer!
  • Are the kids begging to wear their favorite short sleeved shirts?  Or maybe you just love the layered look? The Minimod Long Sleeve is PERFECT for this!
  • Double up! It is going to be so cold this winter, and to keep your kids toasty and warm, you sometimes have to double up.  Use TWO of these tops to be sure they stay cozy and warm.

3 Key Trends for Fall & Winter

Yes, you can spend a lot of money every season to stay up to date on current trends OR you can be a savvy shopper and save yourself some money! You should always strive to have key, classic, timeless pieces in your wardrobe. A Mod Bod black pencil skirt, a handful of colored Mod Bod cap sleeves and a timeless Mod Bod top are perfect examples.  After reading some fashion blogs, picking up a couple fashion magazines or simply watching the celebrities, you will begin to see a few trends everyone is forecasting for the new season.  Then, you can scout around for the best deal and come away feeling like your money was well spent.

Here are three trends on which we think you should spend your time and money:

The Cardigan

Cardigans are back but this time with style; they’re not your grandmother’s boring cardigans. Designs, colors, fabrics and lengths are all different and make for a very fun trend to play around with this fall.  The cardigan is comfortable, adds the perfect layer to your outfit and is an easy trend to follow this year.  A partially buttoned sweater combined with equally soft pieces can look effortlessly casual. Play around with accessories, belts and different types of bottoms.

 

We love this military inspired cardigan .  How perfect would this look with a brightly colored Mod Bod layered underneath?

Brightly Colored Coats

These are tricky–sometimes the colors even great designers use are just not flattering!  But when you make sure the color you choose goes with your coloring and that it is really a color you feel like you will want to wear this fall and winter, go for it! It makes an easy outfit like jeans paired with a white Mod Bod top look just fabulous.  I have this trench coat and love the quality and fit. Check out the colors we found around:

Dresses with Color

Dresses with COLOR are in this fall.  You’ll find dresses that are a little less formal and work for the workplace, a casual night out, etc. You’ll also see dresses that cover all your assets, that are great paired with fun accessories and that have great color and patterns.

The Pencil Skirt, A Piece that ALWAYS Needs to Be in Your Wardrobe

We just love the Pencil Skirt trend here at Mod Bod. We think it looks stylish, trendy, modern and modest. It’s very glamorous too, and there are so many things you can do with a pencil skirt.
The length and fit of a pencil skirt is great for every body type. It should be a go-to item in your wardrobe!
But who knows how much these outfits cost these celebs? Our Mod Bod pencil skirt is high quality, a wonderful fit and an affordable price at 44.95. It comes in black, khaki and brown in sizes S to XL. You can buy it here.

4 Items at 40% Off!

Four items from our line right now are 40% off and they are items you need to have for THIS CURRENT season! Let us show them off to you:

Such a versatile and classic piece that every female in the house can share! You can make this banded cardigan work perfectly for work, a night out with friends or on a date. You add YOUR personality to make it feel like you. Add a lace top underneath for more of a romantic look.  Pair it with a vintage belt for a boho look or even use it to make dresses a bit more modest by adding sleeves.  So many ways to use this high quality, very versatile piece.
$18 for this top is a complete steal and you can pick one up in white, black and this beautiful pewter color. Pair it with jeans, a great fitting denim skirt, under a fun fall jacket or use it as a layering piece. Our customers love the bit of puff in the arm to help the arm look thinner and longer. Such a beautiful top that can be used for years and years.
Don’t you love tops that are so comfy, warm and fit just right? Almost like a “comfort” top you always go to on any sort of day. Well THIS is it. Worried about having a day where you feel like you want to hide anything around the stomach area? Or a day where it is bitterly cold outside and you just want to stay warm and comfy but you don’t want to dress down TOO much and look sloppy?  Boy, this shirt is just perfect for that AND to use in dressier outfits as well.
Lastly, the Anna Ruffle Neck Top: such a just classy, beautiful and timeless piece. We love how you can create completely different looks just by deciding on if you should button the top of the shirt or not.  For those of you who want to participate in the ruffle trend of this season but not go too far, this shirt is perfect because it has just a touch of it.
 
Be sure to take advantage of all of these items being 40% off this week!

Dead Trends & Trends that are Still Going Strong!

Don’t you love those specials on fashion do’s and don’ts?  We wanted to do our own version: Dead Trends and Trends that are Still Going Strong!

Be sure to let us know if you disagree, agree or have ideas of your own!

DEAD TRENDS

#1 Oversized Flannel: Flannel doesn’t need to be oversized, unshapely or dull anymore. You can shop around for a different colored print than the norm or buy it in a jacket and put a great tank underneath. You can wear a fitted flannel top with leggings and great boots.  Basically wear it any way but the oversized, dull flannel that we wore when we were all younger!

#2 Doc Martens: It is time for Doc Martens to go!  There are so many different shoe choices that are durable, comfy and great for running around in, but at the same time elongate the leg and that are much more attractive!

#3 TOO much Animal Print: We love animal print but it’s really good in only ONE aspect of your outfit.  Use it in the coat or dress or bag or top or bottom.  But please  not in every item of clothing.  That is just overkill!

#4 Bad Fitting Jeans: Seems like most women, no matter what age, have been able to take the tutorials they have seen or heard or just FINALLY find a brand that makes them look fantastic. But there are still stragglers out there. A trend that needs to die is ill-fitting jeans in any way: jeans that show too much in the back when a woman sits down or that are too high or too tight or too loose.  Take advantage of all the tutorials and brands out there and find the jeans that will look amazing on you!

#5 Not having FUN! Don’t let fashion or trends discourage you or overwhelm you.  Fashion is fun.  Finding your personality and look and feel makes you feel beautiful and confident to match your wonderful personality!

Trends that are Still Going Strong!

#1 Trench Coat: These are just so classic and we don’t see them ever going out of style!  Sure, new colors and fits come in and out. Every woman needs a great trench coat that shows off her waist and makes her look just classically beautiful.

#2 Casual: Easy breezy, you still can be feminine and fun while at the same time feeling casual and comfy. Casual and comfy doesn’t mean sloppy anymore!  Boots are now made to be casual and elegant at the same time.  From great fitting tops to jeans, casual is in!

#3 Shirtdresses:  A shirtdress is such a classic piece and here to stay in all lengths, colors and styles. Wear it with a belt around the waist or just paired with a great handbag.

#4 Pencil Skirts: Aren’t you glad that here at Mod Bod we HAVE the perfect pencil skirt for you? Such a perfect look for date night, a work outfit or a more dressier event. We love how this piece has been around for decades and is still here!

#5 White Shirt, Great Jeans & Heels: You can’t go wrong with this outfit.  It always look classy, well put together and attractive.
