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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
and a cute pair of flats.
or if i wanted to smooth out those curves some i would wear some leggings:
add a cute necklace...and ready to go!

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

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:
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:
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!
“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?
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!
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!
