Tips to Rock the Holidays (and Black Wednesday!)

I just wrapped up an online event where some friends of mine and I shared tips to help you take on the holidays with grace and ease. We gave tips on fashion, travel, cleaning, beauty, wellness, food and more.

I invite you to check it out and interact with others who are enjoying each post. I know I learned a lot in just 30 minutes.

One of the posts that I shared was this one about taking the worry out of holiday party dressing by wearing a Little Black Dress (aka LBD). When you wear an LBD, you’ll be dressed on-point no matter what the dress code is. You might even already have an LBD in your closet.

Pair it with something sparkly or festive and of course, your best black heels.

And, great news, the two of the LBDs featured in this graphic are part of our Black Friday (er, Black Wednesday) sale that starts tomorrow (Nov 21, 2018). The Wrap Dress (on the left) will be 70% off and the Fit and Flare Dress (on the right) will be 50% off. They will go fast so shop early (like on Black Wednesday).

Not only are these two little black dresses on sale, but we have our Sheer Collection camis also on sale (midnight blue, purple, silver and kiss red), plus a variety of other clothing and shapewear items ranging from 20-70% off.

If you have sizing or product questions, message me and I can help.

Weekend OOTD

This weekend (yeah, late in posting this), I put together a new Outfit of the Day using one of our newer leggings and a top from last winter. I love how my Ruby Ribbon items mix and match from season to season.
topper and fast track leggingsI paired our Reversible Topper (I like to wear it with the long panels in the front) with our Fast Track Leggings, which are navy with a cute black strip on each leg, for a fashleisure look that was stylist and comfortable.
I wore this to a Christmas concert in my hometown on Sunday afternoon and felt just dressed up enough. I even added a Lux Shawl instead of my winter coat since it was quite warm.

Best tip yet, the Reversible Topper just went on sale while supplies last.

Jersey skirt can double as a strapless dress

Convertible Sash Skirt

Our Ruby Ribbon Convertible Skirt (that doubles as a fun summer dress too) is one of several items on sale right now for the “New Basics Flash Sale.”
This skirt is made of a travel-friendly matte jersey and features an attached sash that can be tied or pinned at the waist. Use that same sash to tie the skirt into a halter dress or wrap around for a strapless dress.  Just think of the ways you can style this with bright colors or an animal print accent.  When worn as a skirt, pair it with one of the Ruby Ribbon Versatile Tanks that are also on sale for 30% off! The tanks and skirts are both available in sizes XS to 3XL. Get the tank in apricot, chambray, white or black.

Go Red for Women!

In honor of national Go Red for Women day, Ruby Ribbon has put together this special list of warning signs of heart attack in women, which are different than men.
Take a quick look to refresh yourself, for your own sake and for the women you surround yourself with.
As part of Go Red for Women day, I wore one of my Ruby Ribbon favorites, the Criss Cross Front top in, of course, red! (It happens to be on sale for our Go Red flash sale, and a portion of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to the American Heart Association!)

Leather Panel Leggings are Selling Out

As the “Not Just on Black Friday Sale” continues, I just got word from Ruby Ribbon that the HOTTEST item on the sale are the Vegan Leather Panel Leggings. They are so hot, in fact, that they are already sold out in XS and Small sizes.
There is still time to order but I wouldn’t wait too long. They are only $69 (regularly $99). In today’s picture, they are shown with another popular item, the Exposed Shoulder Tunic.
While your shopping, take a few minutes to check out the other items on this 30% off sale. They are great for your work wardrobe and many are awesome for a casual day out.

We all love our leggings!

In keeping with the theme of how many women have I helped be comfortable and fashionable and stylist and look just a little better, and with the Flash Sale on Leggings going on right now, I think I might also share how many pairs of Ruby Ribbon leggings I’ve sold.
Drum roll please…
I’ve sold 131 pairs of the various Ruby Ribbon Leggings! So fun!  Right now they are all 30% off!

Starting Friday, August 19 (2016), Ruby Ribbon is putting several of our best sellers on sale at 30% off!
Billed as the “back to basics” sale, here are the items that are on sale, along with a few of my thoughts on why you might want to check them out.

  • Capri and Ankle leggings – great for your “back to school” teens and Moms everywhere, these are the basic leggings that get us through our daily life, but with a skinny band at the tummy and a quality fabric to hide what we need to hide. Both come in black but capris also available on sale in white
  • Bootcut leggings — the comfortable yoga pants alternative from Ruby Ribbon — I wear mine all summer with sandals for a sleek and flattering look. These come in Tall for those of you that need them!
