Jilly Moo's Sign Off

Monday, August 2, 2010

Today we are sad to announce that we are indefinitely shutting down the Jilly Moo's blog.  This was a very difficult decision for us to come to and we didn't take lightly.  We have chosen to concentrate our time and efforts into styling and other projects that we have in the works, including a possible upcoming Jilly Moo's book!

We thank everyone so much for your loyalty, kind words, comments, and continued readership.

Style Shoot

Thursday, July 29, 2010

We were so excited to work on a shoot with the talented Camille Deann Photography back in June.  We have admired her work and were excited to work with her and our very beautiful model Kayla Andrews.  The inspiration was resort wear and we styled each look.  In the next couple of days we will be showing you some of our favorite shots!

On these first two scenes we were inspired by the creams and white looks that have been so popular this season.

hunanity bracelets...great look for a great cause!

A friend of mine turned me on to these great bracelets that I immediately fell in love with.  They are leather wrap-around bracelets that go from vintage distressed looks to a metallic collection that looks great on a tanned arm. 
For the month of July if you visit Fashion Addict and purchase one of these bracelets, 100% of the proceeds go to Brayden Martin and his family.  On October of 2009 Brayden, a 4 year old child, was diagnosed with MedulloBlastoma, one of the rarest forms of Brain Cancer.  Brayden's tumor has developed into Stage 4 as it had metastasized.  He still has 2.2 cm tumors, a layering in the middle of his brain, and 2 masses of tumors in the middle and bottom of his spine.  The last 3 months of chemo with 3 stem cell transplants didn't do anything but keep the cancer from growing.  His cancer needs to be gone, as it is very aggressive.

Summer Beauty Help

Harsh sun, humidity, chlorine, and salt water can do a number on your skin and hair.  We all need a little help when it comes to summer repair.  Here's some help on some of the worst summer beauty disasters.

1.)  Dry, Dehydrated Skin
If your skin is like ours, the sun sucks the moisture right out of your skin, leaving it dry and scaly.  In addition to our favorite regular daily body moisturizer, we use a balm that is rich in cocoa butter.  You can also try straight cocoa butter.  In a pinch we have even used Vaseline (gotta love it).  It's greasy but gets the job done.
L'Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream $21

2.)  Too Much Sun
Unfortunatly it is too little too late for the burn, but you can prevent the wrinkle-causing damage created by sunburn by using an antioxident rich serum.  Try Olay Definity Self Repair Serum.  To reduce the redness, a moisturizer containing soy will reduce inflamation.  
Fresh Soy Face Cream $38

3.)  Faded or Brassy Hair Color
 If your hair is blond use a color-depositing conditioner like Redken Blonde Glam Perfect Platinum Color Enhancer.  If you are a brunette or redhead, use a mask to help rehydrate and get your natural shine and color back.  
Pureology Essential Repair Restorative Hair Masque $42

4.)  Over Did It On the Self-Tanner
Anyone who has used self-tanner has been here:  orange or streaky skin.  Try an exfoliating body wash to smooth out the skin and get rid of any excess bronze residue.  Baking soda on a washcloth rubbed into the streaky areas will work just as well.  Be careful not to rub yourself raw!  I will admit that I have used nail polish remover and it actually worked pretty well.  Use this method with caution and not on your face!
Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish $38

Staying Cool In the Summer Sun

Friday, July 23, 2010

We got a great question from a "football mom" who is outside with her son at practices in the scorching summer sun.  She has been sporting running shorts and tanks.  Defiantly good to stay cool but not so fashionable.  She asks what can I wear to stay cool and look cool at the same time?

1.)  Wear cool fabrics.  Silk, satin and such are an obvious no.  For one, too dressy.  Secondly, when you sweat it will cling and get wet spots...not a cute look.  Stick to thin cottons, linen, and other such natural fabrics.  Stay away from the synthetics such as polyester.
2.)  When in doubt, stick to the basics.  A t-shirt and shorts will do just fine.  Try stepping it up a notch by going with a shape or style that is more current.  We love a pair of distressed cut-offs with a loose-fitting tee. 
3.)  The looser the better (in regards to your clothing).  Breezy t-shirts, peasant tops, and dresses will keep you cool while still allowing you to have a little style.
4.)  Don't forget to accessorize.  When dressing for practicality and comfort (i.e. usually plain and basic), accessories are your best friend.  They can take you from blah to hot football mom!

Try out some of these ideas.
