Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Posts Tagged ‘clothes

Did you know the average person doesn’t wear 25% of the clothes in their closet?!  thredUP is a new service that allows you to swap clothes you no longer wear for ones that you will! The thredUP team shops in other people’s closets to find you hidden gems in your size and style that they think you will love.  Think: Netflix meets consignment.  Here’s how it works:

Let thredUP know the great items you’re no longer wearing. The team finds thredUP members who are interested in your clothes and then manages the peer-to-peer exchange. You send and receive items using our pre-paid envelopes – no trips to the Post Office, ever!  Frugal, affordable and hassle free.

That’s not all…thredUP kids is launching in February.  Marvelous Girl readers are invited to be founding members.  Click here to sign-up:  First 1,000 thredUP kids members get their first swap for free!

Just three months after giving birth to her fourth child, Heidi Klum announced plans to launch two maternity lines: Lavish by Heidi Klum and Loved by Heidi Klum will debut online and in stores Feb. 12 for A Pea in the Pod and Motherhood Maternity, respectively.

Lavish includes 15 pieces of “iconic style and seamless fit”, like a slinky black maxidress ($128). Loved will offer 14 more-affordable comfort items, like a loose-fitting floral print top ($40) and blue button-down tunic ($30).

 “I experienced fashion challenges during my four pregnancies and combined my knowledge of what works in terms of style, comfort and practicality to create these lines,” Heidi stated. “Being pregnant shouldn’t stop you from being fashionable and feeling great about your changing body. It’s an exciting journey.”

We couldn’t agree more!

Khloe Kardashian Kim partyLast night, while hosting Three-O Vodka Bubble Launch Party at Greenhouse in NYC, sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian looked stunning in a black and white.  Wondering what lables they were wearing?

Surprisingly inexpensive choices for the Kardashian girls.  Kim must be saving up for that $20 million engagement she’s rumored to be eyeing.

Heidi Klum

This is Heidi Klum’s fourth pregnancy, and she definitely still holds the title for hottest mom-to-be.  Heidi recently spoke to PEOPLE about her maternity style…

Heidi said that she doesn’t shop at maternity stores.  “I love to be creative and find cute things in between,” she says. “It’s about finding good shapes. Cool tops. Right now for example, I love the skinny pants and blousier tops, and then when I get bigger, I like to bring the form back to the body. Then I like to show it off.”

Heidi’s favorite maternity garment?  Balenciaga’s black jeans.  “They are super stretchy, and they are not very high, so you can kind of fit them under the belly. The bump on top can still grow,” she says.  However, just for an everyday look Heidi says, “I love the lumberjacks and the ripped jeans. They are comfortable. I love over-sized t-shirts and jeans.”

So you’re pregnant or maybe you just have a long torso, either way standard shirts just don’t fit.  Nothing is more annoying than looking like you bought your clothes at Baby Gap, right?

Well, if you like the look of layering then you’ll  love a topless undershirt from Blush Accessories.  The shirt is worn like a tube top, but around the waist, and is made of a poly/rayon/spandex blend, allowing a huge amount of stretch and great support.

Unlike a tank top or long shirt, it doesn’t have straps which cause your undershirt to constantly ride up.  It stays put without having to always readjust.  Without straps, you are not limited to where the length of your shirt falls.

Topless undershirts are available for $15 on They make fantastic baby shower gifts…and Marvelous Girls get 20 percent off the price of two or more when they enter the code welovebloggers upon checkout.
