About The Fashionista

It had been six weeks since the birth of her little fashionista in training, and she was ready to leave the house in full diva mode, especially after suffering from a painful pelvic condition that rendered her, at times, incapable of moving without experiencing excruciating pain. So, for nine months, she had to give up some things, including her Michael Kors clogs, Joystick jacket, and a pair of special edition Great Wall of China 7 jeans. She won’t reveal the story behind the jeans, nor will she tell you the small fortune spent to obtain them, all because she didn’t want to see herself coming. After all, she needed a rare pair of 7’s to ensure she wouldn’t see fifty other people in them, right?  Oh, yes, they are a really cute pair of jeans! For her first real day out, she decided to meet a stylish, tall and stunningly beautiful friend, Erin, for lunch. She got her little prima donna dressed; she put on a cute outfit, dusted off a pair of high-heeled Kenneth Cole shoes, and rushed out the door. To make a long story short, by the second half of the day, her feet were hurting so bad and her toes had developed painful blisters the size of quarters. This seemingly small event set off a series of mishaps that had her on the verge of committing to a life of scarves, sweats, and sneakers. But, just as she was delving into a point of no return, a light appeared in the midst of the darkness, her little girl, Mademoiselle or Lady O.  Now, what kind of example would she be setting for her if she gave in? And, why should she have to compromise her sense of style just because she wears the title, mom?


Your sense of style doesn’t have to be left on the labor room floor!

    I LOVE the new site. I’m bookmarking it and can’t wait to peruse it all day instead of working. Also, did you know that “Shopaholic & Baby” is scheduled to be released in February 2007. The perfect book for a fashionista and her baby.

  5. Thanks, Kristen. I subscribed to Sophie’s website awhile ago, and received the news about her new book via email. I’m looking forward to reading it!

    WOW, Look at you!
    This is better than reading Lucky Magazine!
    Can’t wait to read the next review.
    What store or website do you recommend for novice product junkies who don’t have a lot of time for those beauty rituals but love to use interesting, unique products. What is your favorite sunblock?

    After my second son was born (5mos. and 3wks) ago, I was on the brink of being sad over the fact that I knew I would have to work extra hard to be able to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes because it simply was much easier for me the first time around (5 yrs ago)…this one was a challenge and at times I did just feel hopeless. All the time and money I’d invested in my clothes and shoes (and I have alot of things) seemed like a waste. Even my husband had doubts saying “it is the second baby and it’s four-five years later…” He even challenged me to a bet to see if I could “pull it off”. But before I gave in to ” letting myself go,” as the saying goes, and also submitting to the routine of elastic waste pants only and sweaters, I pretty much developed the exact mentality as you in terms of a woman’s ” ….sense of style does not have to be left on the labor room floor.” Again, no it wasn’t as easy to get back into my pre-pregnancy size like the first baby (I was in my pre-pregnancy clothes in about 8wks), but I got my head together and became determined to get myself down on the floor as soon as I felt able, and get into my aerobics routine. That’s it. I can’t and don’t tolerate “dieting” so I knew I had to REALLY get devoted to working out on a much needed and regular basis. Thankfully the perserverance paid off and I am officially back into my pre-pregnancy clothes and pants with zippers 🙂

  14. Lorraine: I’m still trying to shed the extra 17 pounds I’ve gained since Mademoiselle was born. I weight about 130 pounds now. People say it looks good, but you know how we are when we critic ourselves. It’s really hard, but like you I must stay determined. Thanks so much for your encouraging words.
