Tips for the Work from Home Mom

No matter why you are a mom with a side hustle, I wish you the best of luck! 10 years ago I never would have thought I'd have a side hustle that's turned into a full-time hustle. Owning a modest clothing boutique wasn't on my radar back then. I graduated in sociology, not fashion merchandising, but life has a funny way of surprising you with new opportunities. And it turns out I really enjoy the geeky side of running a business. Looking at reports and figuring out modest fashion forecasting is fun for me. I also love interacting with my customers and making connections with people from all over the world as social media allows me to do.

How a Heat Wave Inspired a Million Dollar Business

Before I started ModestPop back in 2012, I didn't particularly like what was in my closet. I was in a wardrobe funk so to speak. We had a very limited budget. My husband was a recent law school grad and the jobs were slim pickings. We were also in the middle of the recession. I'm sure some of you in my age bracket (I'm 36 but seriously subconsciously think I'm still 27) can relate to trying to springboard a career during the recession. Not really a time where having a great closet was the biggest priority.

Fall Colors!!!

Every year the Pantone Color Institute evaluates the colors used by designers at New York Fashion Week.  They then create a report and highlight the top 10 colors for the upcoming season.  The colors seen on the catwalk often indicate what colors we will be seeing across all areas of design for the season.  Below are the colors Pantone chose for the Fall 2017 season.  You will be seeing a lot of clothes in theses colors.  Some of these should come as no surprise.  The Tawny Port (Burgundy), Navy, and Autumn Maple colors are staple fall colors.

Modest Celebrity Trends

It's always fun seeing celebrities dressed modestly. This Fall and Winter season, it seems like the trend is not just covered shoulders, but covered everything. Dresses are long and sweeping with high necks. The look is very elegant. I love how Jennifer Laurence and Emily Blunt had their hair done in a feminine updo to show off the entirety of the dress. Jennifer's look is more casual with a soft loose braid and Emily's red carpet look is more elegant and dressed up. Emma is wearing a floral ankle length dress with strappy sandals and pulls off the look with loose pretty curls. Which look would you rather wear and why? One of the reasons I enjoy seeing celebrity women dressed...

Pencil Skirt Style Guide

Ever wonder the best way to make your pencil skirt look great? Lucky Magazine wrote a piece on this recently. Here is what they say:  "Why It Works: The strong up-and-down shape of pencil skirt reins in the flowy fabric up top while heels lengthen the look. Try to avoid traditional pumps—closed or peep-toe—though! It might come off as too corporate." Check out our cute Claire Pencil Skirt. And this modest blouse we sell is really similar to the one in the article!
