SPIRIT HOODS at Momma Told Me

This phenomenon was arguably started on the streets of New York, with an infamous photo of one panda donning local. I say arguably, because it's fair enough to say that art students and trendy teens were no doubt crafting similar looks in fringe cliques long before. However, there's one aspect of this wild trend that's indisputable; the brand that got the buzz out, SpiritHoods. With a simple as all admission that transcends any one definition, SpiritHoods aims to unlock unique individual experiences for each wearer. Their market base isn't just trendy global towns, playful young adults, or even women. The SpiritHoods range spans children styles and sizes to even gender neutral styles worn by men. Perhaps what is most identifiable about the label, aside from the wide variety of primal inspiration, is the introduction of full length hoods. These are pieces of headgear designed to resemble a designated animal in silhouette and texture, featuring attached mitts (think scarf or long beanie). They’re the perfect MUST HAVE Fall accessory. Find your inner animal at SPIRIT HOODS! Drop on by Momma Told Me during the Fall Fashionista Event to snag your own Spirit Hood of Choice (SRV $78-$149)

I’ve been plagued, lifelong with the curse of wearing heels 2 sizes too small, even to my own wedding (insane, right?) Surprisingly it's a compromise more and more women are forced to make. As if shoes can't be tormenting enough with their straps and micro heels, thousands of us are forced to wear sizes that don't properly fit. Fashion over Fit, right? NO! Just because it is hard to find stylish shoes in size 9+, does not mean you must be subject to men’s styles and cheap brands. In the spirit of remedying this epidemic, Barefoot Tess was born; an online emporium of shoes sized 9+. Finally an exclusive shoe club made just for people like me. Let the reverse discrimination begin! Not only can shoppers choose from an impressively comprehensive catalog of top designers such as Corso Como, Ed Hardy, and Koolaburra- they can shop Barefoot Tess' exclusive line of designs! The real life woman behind the brand, Tess, is a sort of All American every woman- struggling to balance her life and career between hunting for fitting footwear. She's fashion savvy, yet diverse in function, and loves shoes with the same passion as many other red blooded women. Tess wants the same envious shoe closet her size 6 and 7 counterparts enjoy; whether that means a collection of sandals and wedges or runway heels and boots. With the help of her mother, in 2005, Tess launched the one stop alternative sizing shoe-wear site, Barefoot Tess, and my feet rejoice! Fall Fashions covering the hottest designer brands, and BT’s in house brand, are rolling in now. Be sure to head on over to Momma Told Me to win a no strings $100 gift card to Barefoot!
