Six 90s Fashion & Accessories You Actually Want to Wear

Hey mamas,

Last week, a pr firm sent me a fun package full of nostalgic candy from the 90’s, and Pretty Woman stick-on nails. It brought be back to the late 90’s when my mom let me purchase a pair of Sally Hansen stick-on nails in a light, French manicure print. I was fifteen and feeling fabulous.

Now, I’m thirty three and feeling even more fabulous. One reason could be the ridiculously wild, art-deco inspired stick-on nails I’m wearing! I wonder whatg the kids will think? I wonder what my husband will think?

I’m always looking for beauty short cuts, and it doesn’t get any easier than stick-on nails. Pretty Woman NYC has created really great options, and, as I type away, the sticky tape (I opted not to use the glue) is holding firm.

Each kit comes with 24 artificial nails, so you can find which size works for you. I have very tiny fingers and was still able to find the right fit, without having to file away sides.

Looking to channel your inner Brenda or Kelly?

If you don’t know my reference, I’ll assume this is your first round of 90’s fashion and beauty. Welcome, you’v been Saves by the Bell. Life is about to get gnarly and totally awesome.

If you do dig my meaning, here are some 90’s fashion and accessories you won’t mind wearing again.

Totally Acceptable 90s Fashion & Accessories

90s Fashion Short Shorts

Who wears short shorts? Well, mom can wear short shorts, if the kids aren’t round or the kids are just too young to realize mom is hot enough to wear short shorts. Check out H&M for tons of affordable options under $20! #SexyMama

90s Fashion Denim on Denim

I can’t say I ever loved this look, although photos I recently uncovered prove otherwise – see below. When wearing several denim clothing items, I like to go with different shades. Or, I’m all about a denim bottom and denim cap. This acid wash denim cap is from Bebe -another 90’s relic I used to love. #WhereTheCoolKidsShop

90s Accessories Chokers

Blame it on Bella and Gigi Hadid, thaqt chokers are back. I don’t love the ultra thin, velvet styles from the 90s. I do enjoy a multi-strand option like the one you can create with StyleSting. For luxury buffs, Chanel recently got in a slew of divine choker options. If you’re in NYC, go to Bergdorf Goodman and ask for Ilona. #AllChokedUp

90s Tech Polaroid Camera

Your go-to accessory for upcoming picnic season is going to be a Polaroid. If you kept your old one, great. If not, you can buy one at Target. #TheOriginalInstagram

90s Beauty Press-on Nails

Save time, just press and go with Pretty Woman Designer Nail Kit available in 90’s beloved all-black nails and the nude French mani. #NailedIt

90s Fashion Crop Tops

This is an acquired taste – kind of like some your friends’ spouses . I also think, much like short shorts, this is something I wouldn’t rock at the annual family BBQ. I would do it on a vaca with the hubs. The photographed crochet top was purchased in Cuba, by me, nearly 15 years ago. But you can find similar styles at BooHoo or Forever 21. #BecauseIHitTheGym

Everyday Lingerie

How Sexy Can You Go? — Every Day Lingerie Ideal for You

Hey Mamas,

How sexy can you go?

Valentine’s Day is TODAY … no pressure.

No, seriously, no pressure.

Valentine’s Day, in my humble opinion, is a commercialized joke forcing terrible husbands to run into a drug store during their lunch break, to purchase a terrible box of over-priced chocolates.

It’s also a day when terrible wives put on their sexiest lingerie for an annual “play date”.

Guys – you should get your wives flowers and chocolates every day; and, give her the attention she deserves, on the regular.

Mamas – you should wear sexy undergarments on the regular. It’s not just for your man; it’s for your own sexual confidence.

I’m sitting right now in a lacy peach bra from Hanro of Switzerland and my wickedly glamorous Gooseberry Intimates kimono robe (which you’ve likely spotted in my Instagram or Facebook pages). I feel feminine, confident and extremely sexy. #AlwaysBeYourBestYou

Get inspired not intimated, to wear lingerie every day. Simply decide, how sexy can you go?

There’s no right or wrong lingerie, no right or wrong level of sexy. Just own your look, own you sexiness, and don’t save your sexy for one day a year.

Friday 5 Finds by Pamela Pekerman

Good Vibes, Inauguration Day Style – FRIDAY 5 FINDS

Hey Mamas,

The day has come, Friday! Oh, and it’s Inauguration Day, as if you didn’t know that little fact.

Regardless of whom you voted for, we should all use today to inaugurate good vibes. As moms, we have the power – the greatest power – to keep America great. Moms have the power to raise kind, competent, cultured and considerate young men and women, who will populate our planet with good vibes and compassionate decisions.

So, my Friday 5 Finds are all about positive affirmations, worthy leaders to emulate and all-over goodness. Enjoy.

GOOD VIBES JEWELRY

Wear your love around your neck, with Capsul Jewelry‘s Block Necklace. I have one with the intials of everyone in my family, but you can also use their fun emojis and hashtags to create your own good-vibes bling.

GOOD VIBES STYLE

Spiritual Gangster‘s Good Vibes Only V-Neck Pullover says it all in a fun, collegiate top. I wish they made mini versions, for my daughter. The fabric feels super lush. Check out my Instagram for photos, as I wear the shirt, today.

GOOD VIBES IN BED

Because we can always use a little extra sexiness, to up our good vibes game. Gooseberry Intimates Be Mine Bra Longline & Tanga is just what you need on a Friday …. or Tuesday … night. Abs no included – total bummer.

GOOD VIBES WITH FAMILY

Spread the fun and positivity during family gathering. Personalogy Family Fun Card Game is a great way to get everyone – from both sides of the family – talking, laughing and learning new things about one another.

GOOD VIBES READ

If you want to get schooled on what it means to go make it in America, not to mention plenty of womanly wisdom, read My Own Words, by the one-and-only Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

FRIDAY 5 FINDS: Hygge Life Essentials for Cozy Weekends, January 5, 2017

Hey Mamas,

It’s my first Friday Five Finds of 2017, with a hygge twist!

Check out what’s keeping me sane and stylish, this week. I wasn’t really looking for a theme, but every find has a hygge vibe (that’s Danish for “cozy” aka celebrating the everyday moments).

Hygge Finds by Pamela Pekerman

1. Insta Print

If you’re like me, you have thousands of photos of your kids – waaaay more than your parents have of you! But, your parents, and mine, actually printed photos. Ya, they took the time to print photos and make albums.

Prynt let’s you print instantly. Simply attach the device to your iPhone and snap a photo. A tiny, built-in printer produces a hard-copy photo, and the Prynt app records a video to go with the image. The Prynt case photo can be scanned with your phone’s QR technology to bring the image to life on your screen via that video.

Don’t even ask meabout that last line means. I took it from their website. I know it’s a cool feature. I still haven’t used that bit. But, I have made my grandmother very happy, by giving her photos right on the spot. #GranmasLovePrints 

2. Sweeter Sweaters

J Jill makes some of the best sweaters and pullovers. When I can’t think in the morning, I grab a cream or white knit, pair with a skinny jean, some diamond-stud earrings and wide-rim sunglasses, and I’m done. NO SWEATPANTS TO DAYCARE. Repeat as needed!!

For mamas who still aren’t familiar with J.Jill, I urge you to check them out online, or a store near you. The photos don’t do most of the sweaters justice. You have to feel, try and style your way. Head over to Instagram for my insta stories, to see which sweater I’m wearing, today #KeepingWarm

3. Ending Mealtime Madness

N+B is a hip brand that focuses on “toys for cooler parents” – gotta love that slogan! This Meal Wheel is great not only for promoting family conversation, but, it makes a game out of eating. Playtime meets mealtime meets sanity! #Winning

4. Chicer, Cleaner Candles

Lucid Candle always looks great, never melts, is super safe (no sparks, no soot) and has a natural fragrance. The candle shell is made of a polymer that never burns down, and you simple remove the top fiberglass wick, pour in lucid liquid paraffin, and enjoy. Click here to see how they work.

Candles are hygge approved. And this fuss-free option, is a Friday-night essential. #AllKidsToBe #WereAdulting

5. Speak-to-Me Stones

I found Eye of the Sea, a fabulous new-to-me, jewelry brand, last year, at an Accessories Council showcase. With my new love for gemstones and spiritual jewelry, I was hooked on the simple, yet, elegant bracelets.

I’ve been rocking the brand’s Rose Quarts (self love) bracelet, but for 2017 I’m adding amethyst (stone of spiritual healing and growth) and maybe peridot (color of the year and stone of relationships). Give it a try. If nothing else, you have a nice piece of jewelry. #GettingStoned

3 New Kids Shopping Websites and Apps You’ll Love

By now, Back-to-School is in full swing. From Manhattan to Miami and Houston (waha Texas mamas, it was great seeing ya’ll last week!!) to Hoboken, moms everywhere are breathing a little easier now that summer’s casual vibes have been replaced with fall’s structured schedule.

For me, last week was the first time that both my munchkins were in full-time day care all week long. It was also the kick-off of my first media tour (translation: lots of TV segments, in many cities, in a short period of time) since the birth of my daughter back in 2013.

During my travels, I had the pleasure of chatting with many moms, and one thing we all agreed upon is that time is not on our side.

“I just need one more day,” said one mom on my flight from Houston to Dallas.

“It’s a lot. All of it. Work. Kids. Home. I just want to catch my breath,” said another young mom at LaGuardia Airport, as we bonded over our love of Korean skin-care brands.

These amazing women reassured me that my desire to focus on time saving tips and products for busy moms, is essential!!

With both my munchkins in day care, I’m going to make a stronger push to blog more often, share more products (because I do come across so many amazing tools that have made my life easier, and can help you, as well) and also share more about my journey in the crazy land of motherhood.

Now, looping back to back to school mode, if you haven’t found the time to scoop up some new fashion and accessories for your kids, fear not! I’ve found three cool and innovative kids shopping websites and apps that will make yur Back to School shopping a breeze.

KidsShoes.com

Am I the only mom that can’t figure out what shoe size to buy for her kids? I get so excited when I find a shoe that fits, I tend to keep my daughter or son in them for as long as possible. (Which explains why we had no rain boots today! What, sandals were totally appropriate in terenchal downpour.)

So, if you’re like me, and shoe-shopping for your kids is an exercise in click, receive, print return label, and repeat, then you will love KidsShoes.com. KidsShoes.com creative director, Sarah Caplan, teamed up with footwear experts to create a patent-pending universal measuring system called KidsSizing, which allows parents to size their child’s foot online via an app, and purchase shoes that fit correctly every time.

If you’re not a mama that likes to app, there is an option to print out their simple size chart, as well.

KidsShoes.com untitled3

RocketsofAwesome.com

The name alone is killer, right? Well, RocketsofAwesome.com will rock your kid’s wardrobe world by saving you time finding on-trend and affordable fashion that your toddler or tween will want to wear.

Each season, they handpick a selection of high-quality, stylish clothing and ship it to your doorstep in a color-me-if-you-like box. That’s a fun bonus, my 3-year-old and 2-year-old really enjoyed, while I enjoyed a cup of Café Bastelo instant coffee.

Another bonus: value. All items are under $40 and can easily mix and match with each other.

Below, Ilana wears sunglasses, black leggings with hearts and a pink top that are awesome, of course.

KidBox.com

How can shopping become a tool for social good and education? Simple. KidBox.com not only has stylists curate seasonal essentials from top brands lie Reebox, Kensie, Seventh Generation and PUMA, at below retail prices, they will also donate a box of clothing to a child in need if you keep your entire box.

A whole box costs $98, and there are four per year. Each box contains 5-7 items, including a fun lifestyle goody like ABC stickers or a book, depending on your child’s age.

When we got our box, I let my daughter play with the clothing and try them on, but I also told her that we would be helping give clothing to another little girl or buy that really needs it. Even at 3, I want her to know that we always have opportunities to give of ourselves, be it via time, money or making purchases with heart.

momBOSS interview: Ramy Sharp designer Ramy Brook fashion

Several years ago, while filming a makeover segment for CBS’s The Couch (RIP – I loved that show and crew), I met designer Ramy Sharp of Ramy Brook. Assertive, vivacious, impeccably coiffed, yet effortlessly casual, Ramy embodied her sexy, sophisticated brand. Several lunches and conversations later, I was hooked on the woman, her fashion brand (PS the Robi sleeveless top is a style staple) and the motherly wisdom she could share with me – I was a new mom with one baby, she already had three kids. I’m so happy Ramy was eager to be interviewed for this feature. She everything I think about when I envision a momBOSS*.Ramy Sharp of Ramy Brook

Pamela Pekerman: In your 20s you were a big shot advertising gal. When and why did you decide to take a break from work?

Ramy Sharp: When I graduated college I was determined to move to NYC. Once I decided not to go to law school, like both of my roommates, advertising seemed like a good field for me. It was corporate and social at the same time. After 10 years in the business, I had my first son. I went back to work on a freelance basis to keep my head in the game. However, it was tough for me to balance both work and being a new mom. So, I stopped working in advertising and took my skills into the philanthropic world where I could create my own hours, interact with adults, do good and be a mom.

Pamela: Since the launch of Ramy Brook in 2010, you’ve had tremendous success in a short period of time. Many moms have dreams, they never chase. What gave you the courage to follow your passion?

Ramy: When I launched Ramy Brook I was fulfilling a need for my own wardrobe. Every day, I would look in my closet and couldn’t find anything to wear. All I wanted was a sexy top to wear with jeans. I had no clue what I was doing, so I asked everyone I knew in the business for help. Jennifer Miller(jeweler) helped me secure the name, Stefani Greenfield (owner of Scoop) sat with me all day and taught me retail math among other things of how to build a brand. My friend hooked me up with her high school friend, Anika, a renowned pattern maker for a brand called Tuleh. Timing seemed to be on my side, as Tuleh closed its doors, so Anika and I worked day and night to create the first 7 pieces of the Ramy Brook collection. As I look back, I realize I didn’t have time to worry or question myself. I found a way to overcome my fears and stumbling blocks, because at the end of the day, I believed women needed these clothes as much as I did.

Pamela: With Ramy Brook, at what point did you realize, “Wow, I’m onto something big!”?

Ramy: I brought my collection to the famous personal shopper Betty Halbreich at Bergdorf Goodman. She had me hang my 7-piece collection in her dressing room. Betty had an appointment with Chelsea Handler’s stylist and when she walked in and saw the collection she wanted to take every top, I knew I was on to something. Chelsea ended up wearing the VR2 (very Ramy 2) in sky blue to her opening night at the Beacon.

77BA24CB-65FD-4F80-9ADA-42D76924B785

Pamela: Who are some of the fabulous momBOSSes wearing Ramy Brook?

Ramy: Cindy Crawford is one of my all time favorite “momBOSSes” and wears Ramy Brook. Julianna Margulies, Alyssa Milano and Lisa Edelstein are some of my favorite celebrities wearing the brand as well.

IMG_6779

7d5286b1ee54c5e3e275bd50cd677377

Pamela: Who do you have in mind when you design the collections?

Ramy: Our girl is the multi-tasking woman who wants to feel confident in her clothing. She is busy, she is smart, she is happy and the clothes reflect that image to the world.

Pamela: What’s next for Ramy Brook?

Ramy: We have a few shops in the works, one in Southampton and one on the Upper East side. We are focusing on our website, in addition to scouting locations for a new brick and mortar store. Ramy Brook is a lifestyle brand and over the next few years the brand will grow in many other categories– accessories being one of them.

Pamela: How do you find time for YOU in your busy world? What do you love to do during Meaningful Me Moments?

Ramy: My free time is spent with my family– first and foremost. If my kids have a game, show, or school event I try to make it. Family dinners have become even more important, it’s a great way to connect even if it’s a few times a week. Because my days and nights are sometimes hectic I can appreciate the downtime more than ever before. I’m more focused when I have more to juggle.

IMG_4800-2015-08-27-sharp-family-summer-2015

IMG_4716-2015-08-27-sharp-family-summer-2015-v2

Pamela: Quick, you only have 2 minutes to prep and pamper your face. What are you top makeup/skin products?

Ramy: Neutrogena face wash and perfect tinted toner is my savior. I like a lot of Neutrogena products– the eye makeup remover is my favorite. As for makeup, I’m a big Laura Mercier fan, especially the lip gloss. I usually carry two at a time.

Pamela: Balance is a loaded, unrealistic goal, I prefer “Happy Formula”. So, what’s your Happy Formula for managing marriage, three kids, a growing fashion/lifestyle empire, and finding time for yourself?

Ramy: I’m not sure I’ve found the answer, but I genuinely enjoy the way I live my life. My husband is my rock and a big supporter both at home and at work. My kids bring me joy every day, which isn’t to say they don’t drive me nuts, but they will always be my reason to smile! Work enables me to have a passion outside my home. I believe in what we are building at Ramy Brook and I’m excited to share it with the world.D86699E3-C70F-4709-93FA-A6235EEBCBD2

Currently reading my sister’s book, of course, Your Best Age is Now by Dr. Robi Ludwig.

Currently drinking Diet Coke by day and chardonnay by night.

I hope my kids think mom is smart and  cool.

Motherhood is a blessing.

The best advice my mom ever gave me was “Be true to who you are.”

*momBOSS – She’s nurturing, compassionate and focused. She’s always directing, managing and scheduling. She IS home. She is the link that brings everyone together. She is her own woman. She is not perfect. She is juggling and trying to find her happy formula for a meaningful life. Her motto is Always Be Your Best You, which could mean a messy kitchen takes a back seat to applying mascara. 

Are you a momBOSS or know one that we should know about? Leave a comment below and you/she could be featured next. Check back every Wednesday for an interview with an incredible mom that, I hope, will inspire you to find your happy formula, whatever that may mean for you.

PS In case you missed it, I’m hosting a new mom lifestyle show Pamela+Vanessa #momsandwhine.

Check out  Pamela+Vanessa #momsandwhine every Monday 9:30pm EST. We’ll be laughing, whining, and wining. And we have amazing weekly giveaways!

3. H&M Lace Yellow Dress $29.99

Fashion Fix: The Perfect Multiple-Wear Blouse, Ramy Brook Robi Sleeveless Top

In my 30’s I’ve come much closer to understanding who I am, and who I am not – I am good with people, I am not good with organization. I am family first, I am not business first.

What I like, and what I don’t like — cotton candy is king, let’s pass on chocolate. I like peonies over roses.

What my personal style is, and what it will never be — classic, glamorous and easy, because trendy is too 20-something and too much hassle. So, you’ll never catch me in a crop top, bellybutton exposed. Gaucho pants and culottes need not apply to be in my closet.

This brings me to my latest fashion obsession, Ramy Brook’s Robi Sleeveless Top. It’s a Fashion Fix that I turn to time-and-time again, when I need to easily get out the door feeling sharp, classy, and fuss-free.

Ramy Brook Robi Sleeveless Top

Ramy Brook Robi Sleeveless Top

What’s so special about this blouse and why should you buy it?

First it drapes beautifully, but, also has a cinched waist band that contains the fabric. You can move the band to your hips or slightly higher, if you want to just show the billowing fabric. With all that lush silk charmeuse, you can easily wear this while pregnant, which I demonstrated in this week’s PIX11 Morning News segment, Grab & Go Wardrobe.

Second, a v-neckline elongates your neck and draws the eye to your face. I like that I can easily minimize the v with a pin or double-sided tape, during the day, and then do a bit more show-and-tell at night. Um, I don’t have as much to show-and-tell these days, but I’m thrilled to bits if you do!

Lastly, I’m all in for sleeveless blouses. Aside from the fact that I don’t want to think about sweat marks (rggg, I’m just not one of the lucky ones that can wear long sleeve silk. Know what I mean?), sleeveless also gives me the option to layer. Love your layers, ladies.

Below are some of my favorite ways to wear Ramy Brook’s Robi Sleeveless Top. I hope it inspires you to make the most of your closet, love layers and shop smarter. It’s not about how many items are packed into your closet, but the frequency with which you can wear the right items. Let your wardrobe work for you! And, then, work it … work it … work it 😉
