Sheers that don’t suck!

 

Trying to find hosiery that fit properly are one of the most frustrating things a petite person can shop for. 

Often I end up having to pull them up to my armpits to ensure that they 

don’t sag at the bottom avoiding that Elephant-ankle look…..that’s just not the sexiest or most comfortable look! :/Now, add on the fact that your a larger bodied plus-sized petite person … ugh!!!  

So I was ecstatic to find that Sheertex not only had sizing with my height, they also designed cute patterned sheers with my body type/body size in mind.

My excitement grew even more when I found out that they also promised to be furry friend proof —they claim to be indestructible!

Sheertex – the world’s toughest pantyhose.

The fit was perfect and they were one of the most comfortable hosieries that I have ever worn. I wasn’t counting the hours down to when I could tear them off and get into my comfy clothes — my Sheertex *were* comfy clothes!

 

 

I wore my Sheertex for a full day at the office and walking the pups to test them out.

Visit me on Instagram to see how they fit on me with their thick waistband.

😉 😉 😉

The true test would come with the dogs.

I have two furry pals that can be very loving. That’s awesome, but they tend to be hard on my closest when they attempt their daily climb of Mount Mommy.

More than one pair of hosiery has met an untimely death at the claws of Max the Maniac  or Frodo the Frightful.

My pups are lovely, but they are destructive doggies when it comes to hosiery…sigh. 

 

 

Sheertex proved to be their foil!!!

I’m wearing the Polka-Dot Sheers and as you can see they held up to the riggers of both puppies perfectly.

If you are a someone who occasionally gets climbed by animals or has a tendency to catch hosier on desks, nails, chairs, shoes, shrubbery, whatevs …nearly immediately upon putting on a new pair of pantyhose…. then say hello to Sheertex and hosiery that doesn’t suck!

Meow! Meow! Meow!

A few weeks ago I made a bunch of cute Meow! tees to sell at the blogger closet sale, BIG Deal Toronto (stay tuned for a blogpost recap on that event soon).

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 6.27.54 PM

I love, love love these tees!!!! 100% Cotton. Pre-Shunk. V-neck.  They are fabulous! I’m partial to the white one, because the PINK stands out more.  But for Fall, I thought I’d go for an ALL noir look, and have put together TWO looks with these Meow! tees for your reading and viewing pleasure 🙂

Zoomed in view so you can see the mini fuzzy polka dots on my skirt

 #1: Meow! Rocker…

Keeping it real simple with a black on black polka dot pencil skirt (Old Navy), open-toed black leather booties (Aldo), and my moto leather jacket (Danier).

I couldn’t help myself … chose to break up the ALL black look with a hot pink studded belt (Your Big Sister’s Closet) and purple leggings (Old Navy) for extra Fall warmth.

#2: Meow! Cozy…

IMG_5452 

Fall is all about sweater weather! So to take this look into a more cozy vibe….simply replaced the leather jacket for a tri-toned open cardi sweater (Winners) and did up my hot pink gold studded belt (Your Big Sister’s Closet) over top of it, to cinch in my waist and create a nice casual hour-glass shape.  And of course, my paten leather stripped Kate Spade purse to complete both looks.

So, waddya think of these two looks dressing up a simple cotton Meow! tee?  How would you style one?

Although not plus-sized, this fashionable petite babe Tammy, totally did it right for a casual sophisticated Sunday Brunch vibe in her Meow! tee.  Don’t you think?  Bravo Tammy… “me f*uckin’ ow” indeed! 😉

Loving the look on a few PPMeow! readers who’ve purchased tees and sent in their pics!

Swarovski PAW & My Beaded Designs

This table is covered in lovely jewellery by My Beaded Designs.  These unique and custom handmade creations are the brainchild of Maryanne Walczak, a Toronto-based artist.SEXYPLUSPREVIEWF14-37I had the pleasure of meeting this crafty gal last month at SexyPlus Clothing’s exclusive blogger soiree.

PPMeow & MyBeadedDesigns
Me with Maryanne, Owner/Designer of My Beaded Designs

Turns out she’s been a long time follower of PPMeow!  She was touched by the blogpost I did as a Tribute to the passing of my pup, The Berto a few months ago, and wanted to gift me a set of memorial Swarovski PAW jewellery to help lift my spirits and keep his memory with me always, by way of these symbolic pieces 🙂  (Isn’t she the sweetest?)

The special collection gifted to me in the picture below included:

  • small Swarovski PAW Print necklace (Black Clay, Clear Swarovski Chatons – hung on a 24 inch silver plated ball chain with an 8mm Swarovski Jet Black Crystal)
  • Swarovski Dog PAW Print keychain (White Clay, Hematite Swarovski Chatons, Cute Charms and Chinese Crystals
  • Swarovski PAW Print Earrings (Black Clay, Clear Swarovski Chatons on silver plated lever back earrings – 12mm)

Your Collection 2
The beautiful gift set of  Swarovski PAW jewellery

Each piece is made with love by Maryanne, using an Apoxie Clay and then she hand sets each of the Swarovski Chatons (ie. the crystals).

My Beaded Designs original Swarovski PAW Print Necklace was designed and created almost 3 years ago.  The very first PAW Print necklace was donated to Urban Cat Relief (UCR) in memory of a kitten that volunteers tried to save, but couldn’t. Maryanne spent quite some time trying to figure out how to create something beautiful as a memory of such a sad event. Many tears were shed while Maryanne was making this first piece. And ever since that dreadful day when that kitten passed, she was determined to help UCR raise money so that they can do what they do best. Since that time she’s been able to create and donate to Cuddly Cats Rescue and Sanctuary and several other animal rescues and causes – donating $5 from the sale of every Swarovski PAW Print Necklace.  And she is now proudly known among these communities as “The PAW lady” :).

In 2014, Maryanne got involved in Toronto’s WorldPride event and introduced a few new pieces into the PAW collection:
– Rainbow PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains
– Love PAW Print Necklace/Keychains

Rainbow PAW Prints
Rainbow PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains

Love PAWs Necklace
Love PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains

From now until the end of the year, Maryanne and My Beaded Designs will be donating $5 to the Pomeranian and Small Breed Rescue (PSBR) in honour of Bert’s memory from every Swarovski PAW sold!! 🙂

Most of these Swarovski PAW Print Necklaces are priced at $15 (+shipping).

Orders can be made via the My Beaded Designs Facebook Page or via the Artfire Store (however, please note the store is not up-to-date).

Please use the code “PPMeow” when requesting your orders friends, so that the donations for PSBR can be tracked and collected easily from now until December 31, 2014.

I am personally very pleased and proud to be wearing such a lovely, stylish symbol of puppy love in memory of  The Berto.  AND am trilled to be able to help support Pomeranian and Small Breed Rescue in his memory at the same time  — Thanks so much Maryanne & My Beaded Designs. xo\

Yoga Deal for PPMeow! Followers

Since I’ve rediscovered how great the practice of yoga is for mind, body and spirit, I have noticed that despite its growth in popularity over the last year years, yoga sill intimidates people.

So I set up a PPMeow! poll asking: What would make YOU Try Yoga?

The results were as follows:

  1. An amazing Deal/Pricepoint  (36%+)
  2. If classes had modified poses/movements for larger bodies
  3. Other*  (This was a free-form field…sadly, nothing was entered /captured within)
  4. Location
  5. Not having to go alone

Keeping all of these results and feedback in mind PetitePlus, Meow! has teamed up with Jess & co. from Studio Blue Yoga & Fitness …and we’ve cooked up a special $30-for-5 yoga sessions just for my readers/followers!  PPM30 YogaDeal

This is a phenomenal deal – considering typically one yoga session is around $22!   We hoped that this price point would give you the courage and confidence to try out group exercise amongst a group of non-traditional yoga bodies, at a studio that’s easy to get to with supportive, playful classes.   Invite a friend to come along … at this price point invite two! 🙂

 

How the Deal Works:

  • The PPMeow! $30 Pass can only be purchased at  Studio Blue  location and is EXCLUSIVE to PPMeow! reader/follower.  Therefore, you’ll need PROVE it to them, i.e. Showing them on your phone/device that you’ve LIKE’d PPMeow’s Facebook Page.  WordPress followers … You will need to show them that you’re subscribed to my blog using your phone/device (might be easiest for y’all to LIKE the FB page too, if you haven’t already…*wink wink*).
  • The 5-sessions can be booked for whatever class you like, as your life allows! Use their schedule and class description to select the ones you like best. Try all of them.  Entirely up to you!
  • Once you have the pass, you’ll then be able to book via their online booking tool for the rest of your sessions – uber convenient!
  • The PPMeow! $30 Pass expires 90-days from its purchase date.  Limited one per person.

I’m often yoga-buddy-less, so if you wanna get your personal yoga journey started but are buddy-less also, I’d love to have you join me!    So far, the class that best works for me, my life and yoga goals is the Tuesday 6:30pm Foundations Flow – a beginner friendly and comprehensive class with a focus on anatomy. Includes Sun Salutations, Downward Dog flows and other fundamental postures that is suitable for all levels.

Class_Schedule_Winter-1024x790

Now gentlemen readers – know that YOU TOO can take advantage of this deal! Would love, love, love to have you participate.  Of course, the same above rules apply in order to get the PPMeow! $30 Deal.

Everyone’s fitness/yoga goals naturally will be unique to you.

My personal yoga goals are: to better my breathing through every movement, becoming more aware of what my body is telling me and focus on being more present in order to relax.

I’ve only been to a handful of yoga classes and already I can see how much yoga has improved my life in terms of sleeping better, feeling stronger, managing my anxiety and I want everyone to experience its benefits – especially my PPMeow! supporters!

Trend Report by Stella & Dot Stylist Amy Lazar Kleiman

 spring10 PM

Can you say, Hello Yellow! I say, if spring is going to take its sweet time, then we should just wear some sunshine instead! Grab and wrap a bright yellow scarf around ya or put on a pair of yellow earrings – like you’ll find in the Norah collection – to perk you up after this dreary winter.

Really, adding colour to any outfit will do and that’s one thing about Stella & Dot, there’s lots of colour to choose from!

The stunning Spring 2014 collection debuted in January, and I’m already loving the Elodie necklace – which I wear with a simple black top and it looks like I’m super stylish! I have also fallen hard for the gorgeous green Linden necklace, which looks AMAZING over a hot new colour for spring – MINT!

One of my favourite things about Stella &Dot, and it’s why I was first attracted to this boutique line of jewelry when I was invited to a trunk show three years ago, is its versatility.

Most of the pieces can be worn more than one way and you’ll find many of the pieces can be worn layered to give you an entirely new look.

For example, the newly-released Rory necklace (similar look to the Elodie) can be layered with the Somervell necklace and you can finish the look with a pair of Nancy studs. Easy peasy and pretty too!

I know I’ve talked a lot of about our necklaces, but when you check out the entire line, you’ll see that there are bold and beautiful earrings and bracelets too!

If there’s one last trend I’m noticing for spring, it’s in the BAGS!  Grab yourself a cute bag for spring – like the Avalon Tote in geranium! Treat yo’self, cause you know you’re going to need those emergency flip flops soon for a fresh summer-ready pedicure (I promise, any day now girls!).

So, I hope this has inspired you to add some sparkle to your spring wardrobe – and a BIG thank you to Irene for her blog AND for inspiring all of us to take our fashion up a notch every day!

I’m happy to help with all of your styling needs – so don’t be afraid to reach out and visit my site: www.stelladot.com/amylazarkleiman
