Look of the Week // The Muumuu

Look, I know you might think of muumuus as something your grandma wears around the house but I'm here to tell you that not only can they be done right, I am going to claim that they'll be this season's hottest item.  Probably not but I think you'll see them around... and then they'll hit the clearance racks and I will buy them all.  Here's a look at some muumuu-esque pieces from Stella McCartney (all available here):


And just to prove to you how much I stand behind the muumuu, here are some variations I've enjoyed in the past.  Personally, I like to find them at the thrift store and then hem the hell out of them.  Expert tip: the ones with belted waists (on the inside or on the outside of the dress) make you look less fat.



Also, please don't worry... I hate talking about myself so this blog is not turning into a place where I take pictures of what I'm wearing everyday.  Because it would be boring and filled mostly with Canadian tuxedos, my outfit of choice.  Other miscellaneous notes... that is a chocolate mustache lollipop on the left, I'm in the Turf Club bathroom in the middle and that's a celebrity/candid shot on the right.  I almost made it into Us Weekly as Cher.

You're so hot, show yourself more on this blog. Not even Stell M. made me love a muumuu, seeing you in one and I was in.

Well, you've definitely have the legs to rock this look. I wouldn't mind at all if you showed more photos of yourself. Though, I hear you, I'm not a big fan of photos of myself either.

Seriously I have been thinking about these alot lately but didn't think a stylish one existed. Yours look so cute! I saw a lady in a caftan today (muumuu's sister) and I had to have it. Of course she bought it in a thrift store in Dallas. :(

Well you know I am huge, HUGE fan of muumuus and her sister the caftan, but I don't look as FABULOUS as you do in yours. That celebrity shot is uh-mazing!

Jules does the muumuu SHORT!! Those ain't no Golden Girl gams, m'dear. You look beautiful. As a side note, I wouldn't mind if you posted daily pics of yourself, can tux or no.
