I love a good boot! Especially in the winter, who wants to be caught in uncomfortable, unfashionable boots and boots that don’t keep your feet warm. Not me for sure! So glad that I got to test out the Verona from The Original Muck Boot Company. Are you looking for a nice leather boot that you can wear with leggings, skirts and pants? One that is perfect to wear on snowy days AND one that you can still wear in the office or running about without that bulky snow boot feel? Then the Verona from The Original Muck Boot Company is the solution.
The Original Muck Boot Company has so many multiple styles that are comfortable yet high performance. They offer rubber and leather footwear with a mission to tackle tough conditions or just to stay warm in the winter. So whether you work or spend a lot of time outdoors (think…lawn and garden, outdoor sporting, equine) you have to check out their selection. Or even if you don’t and are looking for a great winter boot this is the place. They also have great rain boots too.
The Verona is a stylish waterproof leather women’s boot. It features 100% waterproof leather, 2mm of neoprene to keep feet warm and dry, two adjustable leather straps, and a full neoprene bootie. It really is a stylish, cute boot. I like the fact that is has a bit of an edge to it too. It is perfect to slip on to walk the dog and yet you can wear it to the office as the leather makes it a bit more dressy than traditional clunky snow boots. I actually got stopped at a store by a young woman who complemented me on how nice the boots looked! Check them out here.
Disclosure: The Original Muck Boot Company sent me a pair of the Verona to test out. All opinions in this blog post are my own.
Last night I had the pleasure of being interviewed on The Clothes Line with Susan Kanoff and designer Dayanne Danier along with Nichelle Pace, Editor-in-Chief of STYLEMOM.com. We discussed putting together a stylish wardrobe that will suit your lifestyle and make you look great. We talked about keeping your style while pregnant, what colors are in this season and much more. Click on the link below to listen in!
I sat down with Susan Kanoff, fashion coach and founder of A Great New Look. Don’t we all need a fashion coach at some point in our lives? With a passion for fashion and a natural flair for style, Susan has the innate ability to create fabulous outfits for women of all shapes and sizes. Working with Susan will help you to look and feel great, inside and out. Whether you’re updating a wardrobe, revamping a closet, or shopping for new clothes, Susan will teach you how to put stylish outfits together to suit your body type and lifestyle. You will always get honest and objective guidance without pressure to conform to fashion trends.
Here’s a quick Q&A on her background and advice to other women owned businesses.
Q: When did you first come up with your business idea?
A: My background is in social work but I’ve always loved helping my friends and family with their clothes. My business was born about 4 years ago when a close friend who is a life coach, persuaded me to follow my passion for fashion & style by launching a business as a “fashion coach”. My first thought was “who will hire a social worker as a wardrobe stylist”? But when you follow your passion good things happen, and within a year I had a robust clientele and was styling for television and print.
Q: What does the future hold for your business?
A: In addition to working with private clients and running style workshops, I’ve started to do more makeovers. I recently launched Project Makeover, a team of service professionals who are dedicated to providing head to toe makeovers to deserving women. I get a great sense of satisfaction when I’m giving back to the community and helping to improve women’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
Q: Any advice for other mom/women owned businesses?
A: Don’t spread yourself thin. It’s easy to get pulled in too many directions—networking meetings, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. Pick and choose what works best for you and don’t try to overdo it.
Wow….that is how I would describe the Getting Gorgeous event in New York this past weekend. Getting Gorgeous Events brings bloggers together with some great companies. The fashion and beauty event was at the Metropolitan Pavillion on Sat. April 2 and it was a blast. These events were created by two fabulous, smart and talented women:VeraSweeney and Audrey McClelland.
Those wonderfully dreamy cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake in DC. Yes I had two – the red velvet and deep chocolate and I am still thinking about them – luckily they deliver.
Any product from Belli Skin Care smelled amazing. I would use these lotions even if I wasn’t pregnant. I liked their hand sanitizer the best. These products are great for expecting moms, new moms and baby skin care.
I LOVE the concept behind Flip Out Sandals Flip flops with interchangeable shoe jewels. They also sell jelly sandals as well. It brings a little bling to your summer flip flops. We all know how much I love my flip flops!
BJ’s Wholesale Club has a spread of dips including guacamole, hummus and salsa. ALL were yummy.
In our fantastic gift bag we received some great products from Hanes, Degree, Tide to go and these pretty earrings from Studio Jewel.
A talented make-up artist created a smoky eye for me. Leora Edut did a great job. My travel companion, mommajam thank goodness knew her way around and we had a blast not to mention some laughs along the way! It was just a great time meeting other bloggers, talking to some great product companies and enjoying some great treats!
