If you know of a Mommy who needs to step up her fab, Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet is here to help. This week, she shares her Mommy must-haves.
“The peplum dress. Perfect for a meeting at school for the mom who doesn’t exactly go the suit route, like me.
Something metallic For mom’s night out!
A Proenza bag. I like any bags that come in bright colors. This is great for holding small accessories. OK, it’s hardly functional, but every mom needs a treat.
Celine tote. Because it holds everything.
Prada Platforms. Much preferred to stilettos when chasing a rather quick toddler.
Big ass glasses. I like the new Victoria Beckham ones—perfect for those hungover, tired mommy mornings. No sweetie, mommy isn’t sick, she just has an eye ache that lots of coffee will fix.
Snack trap. Curbs your hunger urge without resulting in a bag covered in Cheerio crumbs. bs.
CANON POWERSHOT S95 digital camera. My favorite point-and-shoots for capturing moments in pic or video format.
A Louise Green hat. It’s a fast way to look totally fabulous at any hour of the day!
Lip gloss. A must-have at all times. I love M.A.C’s Hello Kitty pink.
Homeoplasmine. Instant fix for any skin issues. Eloise calls it ‘boo boo cream,’ I call it the instant facial.
Layers and layers of jewelry. Toddler entertainment. Start with a silver Philippe Audibart cuff, glam it out with pieces from the bead and jewelry stores on Sixth Avenue (in the thirties).
Pylones umbrella. For when it rains and if you are a freak like moi who hates the sun it doubles as a colorful parasol.”
