77 and loving Ruby Ribbon!

I just wanted to pop over here and show you this picture that another stylist shared of her Mom on her 77th birthday. She’s modeling her Ruby Ribbon Popover Top with the white Stretch Woven Pants and you can see she’s just having a ball doing it!

I’ve always got black leggings (always)

Black leggings are what everyone wants, right?  They are right at the intersection of fashion and comfort. They are everywhere, with varying lengths and unique details and guess what, at Ruby Ribbon, we’ve got them all.  All the black leggings, all the time.

Our black leggings go the extra mile for you. They feature the signature Ruby Ribbon “skinny band” at the waist, giving you just a little shaping on your tummy. And they are high quality and will last so long (no fading).

And what a selection. Our options go beyond just ankle or capri?  We have details, lots and lots of details. Check out the Criss Cross Capris, my favorite Jacquard Leggings, the Skirted Leggings or even the black Denim Leggings.  So. Many. Options. (Which will you choose?)

Back in the Mobile Boutique – starting today!

I hopped in my Style with Char Mobile Boutique this AM and drove to my day job at a real estate software company because today’s the day that I officially kick off the 2018 Mobile Boutique season!

While I’m working on some fun new updates to the boutique, I’m also making sure it’s mobile throughout the project.  So far, I’ve added new benches in the dressing rooms and placed some orders for a few of the other changes that are coming soon.

If you’re in the Fargo area, you’re officially invited to stop in tonight to see what’s been cooking with Ruby Ribbon. I’ll be parked in the Gander Mountain parking lot starting at 5 PM and will be there until about 7:30 PM.  I look forward to seeing you.

Blogger shares opinion on New Ruby Ribbon Nursing Cami

Thanks to JJ over at bellyitchblog who tested out and shared her thoughts on the new Nursing Cami from Ruby Ribbon.

Here is just part of what she said, “It was easy to release the snap to nurse her baby boy. The fact that the cami has a wire free nursing bra sewn in makes the cami wearable underneath a sweater, blouse or shirt. It has compression fabric that also does wonders to smooth and trim the tummy area. The compression also helps to support the back.

With an easy one-hand clasp, full belly coverage that smooths and trims, all while providing extra back support, the Nursing Cami does it all. You’ll never want to wear your old nursing bra again.

Summer is for Capris!

Here are the two latest styles we’ve added to our capri mix.

  • Fast Track Capri — a bright desert “Camo” print adds color to your work-out…even if that workout involves sipping iced tea on the patio. A slimming black stripe down the side flatters, while these capris coordinate with a lot of tops. Pair with our Summer brights: Cobalt (or Black) Dual Tank, Charged Pink or Olive Tiered Crochet Extenders. They would also be so cute with the Nothing But Net Tunic and flip-flops.
  • Dual Track Capri – Fitted, sporty, trend-right, comfortable, these capris are just the right amount of sporty to wear to the coffee shop while also making you the star of your walking group. Perfect witht the Laid Back Tank, just add a Talented Tunic for cooler days.

Go from Pool to Patio

I love when our Ruby Ribbon designer Cami (yeah, that’s really her name) takes a few minutes to showcase our products. Here’s a great video of her sharing what makes the new Kauai Tankini Top special from her perspective.

If you were getting one, would you want Panther or Tropical?

What is Flamestitch?

A flamestitch pattern in the shades of summer was introduced in two different styles of tops with the Ruby Ribbon  2018 collection. Flamestitch is a classic fashion knitwear pattern.

The Flamestitch Tunic is a swim cover-up with a life beyond the pool. This drawstring-waisted topper covers your arms, shows off your waist, while also keeping you cool! Wear it off the beach took with a Flounce Skirt or Denim Leggings.

And, the Off-the Shoulder Flamestitch is the season’s hottest silhouette! A generously-sized tunic with side vents, this top will show off your shoulders while covering your arms! Wear belted or loose, this will be both a fun pool cover-up or patio-party must-have! (This is an easy piece to put in your bag, to give your office look a festive update for a last minute dinner date.) I would pair it with white Capris for a casual look or belted with Slim Leg Ponte Pants for the office.

New Extender style launched with Summer

About a year ago, Ruby Ribbon launched a new concept called the “Extender,” a multipurpose tank that you can wear three ways.

  • Wear as a long tank top over leggings or skirts
  • Wear as a layer under another top, especially a top that needs a little length (think lettings!)
  • Layer under a jacket for another fun look

Before the launch of Summer 2018, we have two versions of these Extenders. We had the Lace Extender in black or white, which featured a wide band of stretchy lace at the bottom. We also had the black Pleated Chiffon Extender, with a cute chiffon detail as the “extender” band.

Now, we also have a new Tiered Crochet Extender in two new shades; choose either Charged Pink or Olive. The Olive will be terrific with our mink brown skirts and leggings or consider it with the khaki Stretch Woven Pants. This extender features three tiers of crocheted lace at the bottom band. All three styles of extenders area available in size XS to 3XL.

Pair any of these extenders with other pieces from the 2018 Summer Capsule.

What’s your preferred shade of neutral?

As if black, mink brown and khaki weren’t enough neutrals for most wardrobes, Ruby Ribbon added white as an option for the popular Stretch Woven Pant.

These pants features a slim straight leg, our patented “skinny band at the waist, and an invisible side zipper. They are structured and perfect for any occasion, but stretch in two directions to move with you all day. Great with flats or heels!

See colorful tops to pair with these neutral pants in this summary of all the fashions in the Summer Capsule .

Who needs a popover?

When I said Popover, I bet your mind went straight to a delicious breakfast pastry?  Mine did too.

But, the latest popover in my world is the Ruby Ribbon Lace Popover, a fun and flirty top that screams summer.  Wear it over a tank or a cami with your favorite capris and you’re set for a summer day. And it’s an obvious swimsuit coverup option.
