Marin County. October 2017.

I love that this dress is Zara, purchased at Goodwill

Yes, this mom is thin – but remember from ME, CURVES are SLAMMIN’ & any of you Haute Moms can pull this off & look gorgeous!!!

Tiny Floral Patterns hide Flaws. Haute Style Tips.

Fashion Notes: Floral Dress: American Apparel, Heels and Jacket: Zara, Gold Hoops: Target

Did you know that a tiny floral pattern hides so much? The pattern is so busy, you can’t see any flaws. When buying a bathing suit, consider a small floral pattern as it’s so flattering. I am wearing all “big name” retailer brands. ¬†And many of you will be happy that I’m wearing this long denim jacket over a dress, not solo!!!

Mini-Dress. Blue Toes. Huge Gold Hoops. Haute Summer.


Marin County, California. Summer 2014.

I just think this mom is adorable. ¬†She’s really tall and thin – so her mini dress looks amazing, and appropriate for a day at the carnival with her kids. ¬†Oh to be tall – thinks look so different on the curvy and shorter women.

Blue toes  Рgreat hat Рfloral dress Рhuge gold hoops (a Mara favorite) summer is in full swing peeps. Take note and have fun!!

Haute Dad in a Dress. Gender Roles re-defined. Los Angeles


Seth Menachem. Los Angeles, California. March 2014

Seth is my brother. ¬†His son asked him to wear a dress this fine Sunday morning, and Seth did just that. ¬†His son just turned two, and it’s amazing when children don’t yet understand gender roles created by society. ¬†These roles are unfortunate and I am proud of my brother for being comfortable enough in his own skin to don a dress. ¬†Now, he does live in “hipsterville”, so I wouldn’t be surprised if every male starts wearing floral dresses and Jeans down least you will know who started the trend.

Hope you have a great Sunday.  And take this moment to think about how we can all let our kids be creative…without old fashion gender stereotypes stopping us.. Oh and look at his feet,

Here is an article Seth wrote about why he’s “cool” with his son wearing dresses,¬†
