Yummy Mummies in the Park. By Melanie Moss.

Have you ever noticed that Yummy Mummies are all starting to look the same? It seems to me that the schoolyard is no longer the place to be cool, its now the play-yard.

I took a friend’s toddler to the park the other day in practice for my upcoming servitude (yes I know I’m mad). Here I was heavily preggers wearing a plain white lycra singlet, black lycra roll top pants and thongs. Believe me, if they came in lycra I’d be wearing those too. I figured there wasn’t much need to dress up I was probably going to get some child’s ice-cream smooshed into my top anyway, so I just threw my look together, swept my hair up and headed down to the park.

It quickly became apparent that the days of running out of the house, screaming toddler in tow, competing with the other mums for the title of most sleep deprived are long gone. I was surrounded by Citizens of Humanity jeans with just the right amount of fade, sleek blow-dried hair (not the “Double Bay Blond” kind but the shiny natural healthy kind), tan leather totes and lattes.

Now I know I have discussed the point before that if your kid looks good you get extra style points, but the women here had taken it one step further. Pram brands are everything, and a designer bag gives you instant access to the club – weekly blow dry or not.

How does one keep up? I got to talking with some of these women thinking surely they must have an army of help giving them enough time to look fabulous each day, but it’s not the case.

When you glance closer the overall style is simple, classic and easy care. Its all about getting the right pieces and having some fun baby friendly accessories.

As always, a great pair of jeans is an essential - I saw plenty of Tsubi, Citizens and Sevens, but the pick of the bunch was a cute pair of white summer cropped jeans from Target. These had a bit of stretch to them that the wearer was more than happy to show off.

The general uniform at the park consists of jeans, basic singlets in all colours – try Baybeechino for great styles that allow feeding, and a cropped jacket beige is best here. Only one style of shoe per season cuts it - Ballet for cool, leather thong for warm. However, if you are going to open toe it, you had better make sure your pedicure is up to scratch. Nice and bright toes and classic baby pink fingernails.

When it comes to the beauty regime, these mums all agree unanimously that time away from the kids is the only way to stay sane. That time is then best spent at the hairdressers or nail bar. No nanny necessary either, just go with a friend (who also has kids) and each take turns taking a time out.

What stood out for me the most wasn’t the clothing, it was the kit that goes along with having a baby. The Yummy Mummy carries a Madison Rose leather tote bag filled with organic baby products and pure muslin wraps. She never ever carries a plain plaid picnic blanket or uses the change tables in the parent’s room, she brings along the softest Amelies Room picnic blankets and change mats to sit on and drink her coffee.

Remember the more designer the bag the less time you have to spend getting ready.
Lucky I had just had a manicure and was carrying a failsafe Chloe……always counts for something……

Romper Stomper. By Melanie Moss.

So I’m sitting here at my laptop on a cold, rainy weekday looking out the window at the poor people struggling past me in wet weather gear, umbrellas and ruined shoes thanking the powers that be that I didn’t have to get out of my jammies today.

There is certainly something to be said for working from home. As a personal stylist I’m sure people think I sit around drinking fresh cups of tea on pure white lounges filled with chintz cushions. The truth is oft more grizzly. Take today for instance. I haven’t had a shower yet, am still in my flannies, my cats are resting on my lap and I have a jug of orange juice beside me with no glass. Oh the joy of drinking straight from the bottle………….

I guess the only saving grace I have left is that I would never let anybody see me like this. In fact it’s in this weakened state of fashion that I am even telling you the bare truth. You have to ask yourself one question, would I answer the door to a courier wearing this outfit. If the answer is no – and in my case it’s a very emphatic NO! then its time to clean out the pajama / around the house draw and grab some groovy basics.

The fact that its so miserable outside is the perfect excuse to shop online and have it sent straight to your door.

I always start at Peter Alexander and buy an ensemble that matches. The polka dot tie front pants, singlet and slippers are a great option and don’t look too bad for putting out the rubbish or greeting the postie.

Elle MacPherson Intimates do the softest black jersey loungewear, lace trimmed singlets and spencers at Zodee, and best of all, no one will know the difference if you walk to the corner store for the papers in them. Just take the fluffy heeled slippers off first……..

For a total flat out like a lizard watching telly day and the ultimate in couch potato style, look no further than Midnight Romp for romper suits, dressing gowns and footed pajamas! Yep you heard me pajamas with attached slippers! It doesn’t get any better than that in my book.

With rain forecast for the weekend, and my order of footed jammies on the way I should be able to work my whole way through Martha Stewarts back catalogue on Foxtel.

BREAD & BUTTER celebrated a premiere in the Shôko Lounge Club in Barcelona

BREAD & BUTTER celebrated a premiere in the Shôko Lounge Club in Barcelona: for the first time, the company awarded the Young Talent Prize 07 in its second home Barcelona in cooperation with the Catalan fashion school "Escuela Superior de Diseño y Moda Felicidad Duce".

The award for the best designer of the “Graduation Show” – the design school’s official exam show, which took place during the BBBarcelona in July 2007 – went to Manuel Bolaño. The second award went to the graduate Andrea Llosa, who has already won the second prize of the “Mittelmoda Fashion Awards” in Gorizia, Italy.

Both prizewinners will be honoured with a stand in Studio VI at the BBBarcelona in January 2008. The studio is one of the most important platforms for young, progressive fashion design talents, offering them the opportunity to present their collections in an extraordinary environment, from installations to temporary exhibitions.

With the Young Talent Prize 07, BREAD & BUTTER is expanding B&B Design – a project that is led by Bernadette Wittman Glittenberg, just as the B&B Studio – with an additional, important component. B&B Design supports new, progressive design talents and brings them together with key industry players. The cooperation with the “Escuela Superior de Diseño y Moda Felicidad Duce” and other fashion schools based in the city underscores BREAD & BUTTER’s goal of intensifying already close ties to Barcelona.

At the last B&BBarcelona, BREAD & BUTTERalready worked with the “Escuela Superior de Diseño y Moda Felicidad Duce” and offered graduates the opportunity to present their works to an international audience within the framework of various projects: alongside the “Graduation Show”, the students could each exhibit two outfits from their exam projects in 38 leading Barcelona fashion and lifestyle stores, allowing them to simultaneously present their works to the general public, industry insiders and future customers.

Additionally, the “Dust Exhibition” offered the graduates an artistic platform for the creative interpretation of the theme “Dust”. The designs were created exclusively for B&B Design and were shown as part of a one-of-a-kind installation at BBBarcelona. A movie, specially developed for the project by photographer and filmmaker Björn Tagemose, accompanied the designs. B&B Design will be continued in January with different national and international projects and partners.

In advance of announcing the winner of the 2006 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award ($200,000), Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour gave a run-down of what’s become of winners past. She also spoke very highly of the award’s career-boosting effects. “In only the third year of the competition, we know that to win a first or runner-up prize is to receive a substantial professional boost.

Zara, Cortefiel, Corte Ingles stand up for Plus Sizes

Leading Spanish fashion houses including Inditex and flagship brand Zara agreed an unprecedented move to draw up a beauty “canon” including harmonizing dress sizes after a recent storm over the number of young women suffering from anorexia.

The 12-point package of measures, or beauty “charter” — drawn up with the health ministry — includes a stipulation that shop windows display sizes of 38 minimum (size 10 in Britain, eight in the United States) and that size-46 apparel be placed in easy view in stores under the generic label “large sizes.”

In a joint statement the couturiers said they intended to harmonize sizes in a bid to reduce the possibility of “consumer error” with sizes currently not in sync from one firm to the next.

Aside from Zara, other signatories included Cortefiel, Mango and chain store Corte Ingles as the Spanish firms, most of whom also sell their wares abroad, are reacting to concerns that anorexia is on the rise and that models are “excessively thin.”

About is a blog for stylish college coeds, featuring fashion tips for students, the latest trends, beauty tips, coupons for shopping on a budget and advice on how to maximize university life.

Briana (an alias) is the name behind this blog. I’m a blond, blue-eyed college junior and I attend a large-ish university in New England, USA. I’m all about fashion, but unfortunately I wasn’t blessed with rich parents, so I’ve learned the hard way how to manage my money and still look hot. I’m all about well calculated splurges on designer pieces every so often and style on a budget the rest of the time.

My Favorite Designers are Marc Jacobs, Valentino and Michael Kors. For my designer denim fix, I like True Religion Jeans, Frankie B, Seven for all Mankind, and Hudson. I love casual and cute clothes from designers like Juicy Couture, Ella Moss, Primp, Splendid and Rachel Pally. I have a taste for Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton handbags, even though I probably won’t get my first for many many years. I lust over Manolos like any true fashion addict, and don’t even ask me what I would give for a pair of Christian Louboutin heels.

On the cheap, I’m into American Eagle, Amercrombie & Fitch, Guess? and Hollister clothing. I love AE jeans, A&F tops, Guess? sweaters and Hollister leggings. Mix that all together with some designer pieces, and you’ll have somewhat of a picture of my style. Oh, and like any college girl, I also adore Victoria’s Secret Pink everything and own a pair of Old Navy flip flops in every color under the sun.
