our second trunk show

19 Feb

on sunday we had our second trunk show.  and while my parent’s house is not as swanky as the medina location was, it was a huge hit!  my mom made a bunch of food and invited friends and friends of friends.  my dad helped us to bring stuff in and “entertain” the ladies as they arrived.  my father is very entertaining.  we did very good in sales and it was nice and intimate.  so nice that millie got to mingle with the clients and tell them more about MiUS.  it was also great because she is so good with fashion pairings and could answer everyone’s questions.

what i like about the trunk show is it is not a direct sales party.  yes, we do something nice for the hostess but you don’t need to feel obligated to buy anything.  what the trunk show does is give women the opportunity to touch and feel the clothing and accessories.  it is nice to know that buying “made in the usa” fashion can be affordable and have quality.  it is nice to have a different piece than other people have.  and it is really nice to be able to shop with friends…while sipping wine or sangria and eating yummy food.

remember…even if you don’t make it to one of our trunk shows…all MiUS merchandise has free returns.  so you can order on line…and when it gets delivered, grab a snack and some wine (just please don’t get any on your MiUS goodies) and try on in the comfort of your own home.  if it doesn’t fit or you don’t love it you can send it back.  if you have questions on what will look good with it…send an email to millie@miuscollection.com – she is good with fashion questions and loves to help.

okay…here are some happy photos from our trunk show!

the trunk show was a lot of fun.  if you are local to the cleveland area and want to have some friends over and host a trunk show for a different “girls” activity, please let us know!  we would be more than happy to set something up.  again, this is not direct sales, but it is fun and we appreciate our hostesses!!  contact carrie@miuscollection.com if you would like more information on trunk shows.

linking up again with lindsey at the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday.   i have seem more haters for the month of february lately…me…it’s not only my birthday month…its a chill month for me so i like it.  but let’s make some spring sounds over here and highlight an outfit i would consider for spring…

i am shopping off the MiUS websites “fab finds under $50” today.  have you checked it out?  it has some great stuff for under fifty bucks!  (hence the name of the page…he he)

for a spring look…i would pair this dress up with a fun colored pair of tights:

Multi Color Crochet Knit Dress  - Multicolor Purple

and a cute pair of flats.

or if i wanted to smooth out those curves some i would wear some leggings:

Seamless leggings - Black

add a cute necklace...and ready to go!

wiSww (what i SHOULD wear wednesday) with Free Shipping Offer

16 Jan

i’m back with another installment of what i should wear wednesday.  i link up with lindsey at the pleated poppy for her what i wore wednesday installment.  but mine is what i should/would like to wear.  i also shop with a budget in mind so most of my pieces are $50 and under.

2013.01.16.wiswwPicMonkey Collage

the pants are a “coming soon” item at MiUS, but you can get an email notification when they come in.  they come in teal and charcoal.  normally, i would immediately go to the charcoal but, in this case, it would depend on what colors are in the fatima scarf.  this scarf is my favorite wardrobe piece right now (santa got it for me).  it is so soft and unique…each scarf is made out of recycled t-shirts!  so if you and i both ordered one…they would be different!  it is warm and i get a lot of compliments on it.  so see…depending on what colors are in the scarf would depend on which pants i would pair with it.

and the earrings?  my five year old recently told me that moms are supposed to wear earrings that dangle..not the tiny post earrings i normally wear.  so now i am on the hunt and purchasing some dangle like “mom” earrings.

basic cardigan $24.99

skinny corduroy pants $49.99

fatima scarf $29.99

sparrow earrings $19.99

and, of course, all MiUS products are made in the USA!  so go to the website for this scarf!!

The “IT” Dress Style for the Holidays!

14 Dec

They are in everyone’s hot list…from runways to celebrities, the Peplum style dress is a MUST have for this season!

In last night’s Golden Globe Nominations, one of my favorite style girls, Jessica Alba was wearing one of these great styles:

But it’s not just Jessica Alba!  Everyone from Beyonce, Kim Kardashian to Rebecca Beckham  are wearing them (I borrowed these pictures from a celebrity fashion blogger, P. Series:

Celebrities in peplum dressesVictoria-Beckham-Peplum-Dress

WHY does everyone love it??

This style is super-flattering because it cinches in the waist and flatters the hips giving the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. This is a style that looks good on most people, and as the peplum itself is a great statement piece it means you only need minimum jewelry and accessories to complete your look.

We have two gorgeous peplum dresses at MiUS Collection:

Curvy size - Peplum

Curvy size – Peplum

Missy size - Peplum

Missy size – Peplum

They are both available in a slimming tailored shape with a pops of color provide a stylish look.  Guess what??? It is your lucky day, because you can rock this dress at your next event at a GREAT deal!!!  Our Deal of the Day is this fabulous dress for $39.99!!! Available in missy and curvy sizes!   Click on the photos above to take you to our page to buy this now!!

You can pair this beauty with some simple jewelry, yet statement making pieces like:

Don’t miss out on the Deal of the day…get it ready for your next special occasion!   Happy Holidays!

what i SHOULD wear

5 Dec

 

 

“it’s beginning to look a lot like winter…everywhere you gooooo” can you hear the song in your head now?  i hope it doesn’t stick with you all day…i hate when i have the same song in my head alllll day.  especially if it’s a theme song from a nick jr, show….gag.

anyway, around here my five-year old even mentioned how we are all decorated for christmas but it doesn’t look like winter outside.  true.  we had two days in the 60s here.  yuk for winter.  today it is supposed to be colder…but i wouldn’t mind a dusting of snow.

so here is a winter outfit…maybe some of you are seeing winter already?

2012.11.27 - Page 001

beret 29.99 – i actually saw someone with this on at the trunk show….holy cuteness!  i almost took it off her head but thought that might be rude.

trendy zip cardi -curvy plus 29.99 although i feel like i look it, i am not quite considered “curvy plus” (yet) but i love this cardi and if i got it in a small i could pull it off with skinny jeans because it would still be a bit baggy (though my fashion police might disagree but hey, they aren’t here right now)

just usa skinny jeans 75.99 i own these.  if you follow my posts you know i wasn’t keen on getting them, but i honestly get compliments every time i wear them.

jaunt tote wave embossed 229.99 (sale!!) i have said it before, i spend more on handbags and accessories because they always fit last longer.  i saw this tote in person at the trunk show and became even more obsessed with it….its on my christmas wish list.

thin stingray buckle bracelet (rainbow) 69.99 – another item i finally saw in person at the trunk show.  another item you will see a lot of in my wiSw posts.  another item on that christmas wish list

purple snood – infinite scarf 32.99 – one of my trunk show goodies.  so soft and warm and useful because it can be a shawl for those cold restaurants or church and a hood for when it rains or the wind is blowing or just a scarf to not only keep you warm but look good!

deal of the day!

Raspberry & Black Sequin Cocktail Dress with Lining

have you been following our deals of the day?  the rasperry and black sequin dress is today’s deal.  i saw this on my friend jill at the trunk show…you have to see how great it looks on!

The Adulteration of Thanksgiving

15 Nov

I don’t know about you….but I’ve been getting bombarded with commercials, catalogues, and flyers for “Black Friday” shopping.  But what struck me the most this year is NOT the crazy prices and deals but how many of the retailers have chosen to adulterate and morph “Thanksgiving” into a “Black Friday” extension by starting “early shopping hours” on Thanksgiving Day.  This truly saddens me as Thanksgiving is a holiday for giving thanks with your family and loved ones and now you will be caught between eating your piece of mom’s apple pie and and getting a piece of the deals from electronics or other imported goods those stores are offering.    The Huttington Post mentions how several petitions have been created on website Change.org suggesting that chains keep their doors shut on Thanksgiving. One petition from a Target employee who wanted the chain to remain closed on the holiday and avoid “Thanksgiving creep” had more than 148,000 supporters over the weekend, but yet Target like many of the other USA retailers chose to open their doors early to compete with this growing trend.  As a consumer and American, I see this as the epitome of commercialization of a great holiday, so I hope you think twice before leaving that football game on Thanksgiving to get those “deals” at the stores that are commercializing this holiday season to that point!   I am now done with my speech for today!  LOL

I actually deterred from my original post to add that speech.  Any-who…what I originally started writing this post about is a great “new trend” called Small Business Saturday.   You may have seen the logo in some of your local stores…Looks like this:

MiUS Collection is part of this effort to bring together consumers and shop your small businesses both locally and cyber. 🙂  This effort makes a great difference to small business many which in this economic climate have been suffering and some are at the brink of closing.   So…I saw this quote on Made in the USA challenge website…(BTW…you might want to take a look at that site for Made in the USA holiday gift ideas), and it really carried the message for small businesses.  So I am including it in today’s post:

I urge you this holiday, when you are going through your holiday gift list…Think Small, think Local and think USA made 😉  If anyone is looking for a holiday gift for idea, tomorrow’s post you will hear from my dear friend and author, Kelley Grealis, and she’ll talk about her novel “The Descendant.”   It’s a great read, and it’s a self-published in the $10-$15 range…once again supporting your local small business and authors 😉  I realize that I just gave another one of my Millie speeches!  Sorry…promise I will stick to my cute style boards, cute outfits and such on my next post.  LOL!

Let me know what you think.
