Mobile Boutique will be in Finley ND tomorrow

We’re going on the road again tomorrow to be part of Finley Days and more specifically the Finley Street Fair.
Look for my Ruby Ribbon Mobile Clothing and Shapewear Boutique, along with 65 other vendors. Hey, that’s taking a #Shopping Party to a new level, isn’t it!
It’s going to be a warm summer day, so maybe I can show you some of my favorite pieces to stay cool!
I’m thinking this slideshow might give you some good options:

Red, White and Black!

Remember the old joke — “what’s black, white and red all over?” – Do you remember the answer? Comment below?
Anyway, what are the colors now available in the Ruby Ribbon versatile tank?
I guess the joke probably gave it away, huh? In addition to the popular black and white options for this tank, you can now add it in red to your summer wardrobe.  It has a shaping sleeve for more smoothing. What color would you wear?

Capris for Summer!

white caprisRuby Ribbon’s leggings are so popular with my clients — they are a nice weight and I often hear remarks that they are more “forgiving” than other leggings that people have worn. They also have the “skinny band,” which is a nice little extra for the person wearing them.
With Summer 2016, Ruby Ribbon is introducing the popular capri version of the their leggings in a new color — White! (Remember, I said the colors of summer red, white and black.)
You will wear these capris with so many pieces in your wardrobe and I suspect you’ll live in them this summer. If you already own a pair of Ruby Ribbon leggings, you can order the same size in confidence.

A new take on the lace lingerie tank

empire lace tankOur lace lingerie tanks, which are designed to be worn over the Ruby Ribbon award-winning cami, have been popular, and with a fresh design for Summer 2016, they are going to be even more popular.
Check out the new Empire Lace Tank that includes straps wide enough to cover your cami straps, but still in the lace that you love! It comes in the basics — black and white — and will be a great layering piece with many of the spring and summer pieces.
It’s long enough to leave out or tuck it in if that’s how you like it. Wear it under the Judi or the Ponte Jacket. I also like it as a summer tank on the hottest days.
Like the lace scarf, this also is a Ruby Ribbon Club item. If you’ve ever purchased a piece of Ruby Ribbon shapewear, you can but this amazing lace tank at a $10 discount.
As of today, you can order any of these new Summer pieces from my Ruby Ribbon website. Or, get in touch with me if you want to see some of these pieces and try them on!

Show me 6 ways to wear that scarf

The peacock green scarf in the Fall collection from Ruby Ribbon was a sellout — so fast that many of my clients didn’t even get a chance to see it.
Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen to you with the black lace scarf that debuts with the Summer 2016 capsule.  This versatile scarf is made of a stretch lace and can be worn six different ways, possibly more!
It’s also a featured “Ruby Ribbon Club Item,” which means that anyone who has purchased a piece of Ruby Ribbon shapewear at any time will get $10 off this scarf, while supplies last. What a great deal!

Are those leggings? With a skirt?

skirted leggingsI can’t wait to try these! I know many of you (including) only choose to wear leggings with a longer tunic and these new Skirted Leggings are coming to our rescue.
The skirt adds a bit of coverage for the leggings in an area where many of us are a bit overly conscious of. When paired with a mid-length top, they provide a color-blocked black addition to the top. The pictures make it look great, and I’m hearing they really deliver. I think we’ll be wearing these in all seasons!
These leggings will fit just like our ankle leggings and still have our famous “skinny band.” If you’ve been pairing your leggings with a skirt already, this takes away a layer at the waist too.
Who thinks they will give them a try?

What's new for Summer 2016?

geo lace top.jpgSummer 2016 Capsule from Ruby Ribbon will launch on Monday, April 25!  To get you into a summer mood, I’m going to start a daily post highlighting the fun new pieces in our Summer line.
We’ll kick it off today with the new white Geo Lace Tee. This is a super cute tee that will be perfect for a casual look. And, it has a fun surprise in the back with crisp detailing. This will be great with nearly any pair of your shorts, or pair it with a Ruby Ribbon skirt for a fun summer look.
This top, and all new Ruby Ribbon pieces, are for all sizes — extra small to 3XL.
There are a total of 14 new pieces in this collection, so you’ll see them all before I actually finish highlighting them, but I’m hoping you’ll check back anyway to hear my personal thoughts on each piece, as well as get a few ideas on how to wear them. Summary of all posts is here.

Peplum tops help camoflage problem areas

peplumsPeplum tops are all the rage in fashion this summer and one of the reasons they are so popular may be what they help you hide.  A peplum top is designed to show off your waist and give you a feminine hour-glass shape.
But I saw this tip recently in a women’s magazine about what a peplum top also can do for you:
peplumtop_royal_frontIn the Summer 2015 collection, Ruby Ribbon offers a beautiful royal blue peplum top. The styling, including lace around the neckline, is gorgeous for any occasion when you need to look a little dressier.
Wear it with the matching royal blue skirt, or with black pants or skirt. Add a cute bracelet and earrings. You’ll be comfortable, but also STUNNING!
