Ok Mamas - it's my last shopping enabling post of the year. But I must warn you: This one will be especially hard to resist.
Have you heard of TMRDNL? It's the line designed by Tamar Daniel, an Israeli- British-American fashion designer who happens to live not far from me. I had the opportunity to meet with her and see her line...and oh, my. We're talking ah-mazing stuff. Like...machine washable, scrunch down into a suitcase and still look amazing stuff.
Tamar's design philosophy is one that us Mamas will relate to. A mom herself, Tamar describes her collection as a "call to arms for dynamic real women, whose days are full of many facets, and whose outfits need to transition from boardroom to playgroup to date night and back again as seamlessly as they do. A versatile mix of easy, thoughtful pieces, the collection is truly a wardrobe for living."
Sing it, Sister.
But here's the bad news: Tamar is moving on. It turns out that designing an entire line is a ton of work (no kidding). And Tamar has something new and exciting in mind. Personally, I'm heartbroken. With gorgeousness like this...
...TMRDNL will be missed.
But here's the silver lining, Mamas. Tamar still has a few pieces in stock. And they are taking up precious room in her storeroom. You know where I'm going with this, right? She'd like some help cleaning things away for the new year. So pieces that typically retail for...oh...let's just say that they typically retail for prices that I cannot afford...are currently available in the $25 - $125 range.
Even better, Tamar is generously offering Ain't No Mom Jeans readers an additional 20% off with the code ANMJ.
Now...what to buy?
Well. My most-worn piece to-date is the Intrigue Jacket, pictured above. It's machine-washable, nursing-friendly, and insanely comfortable. The sleeves are made of a soft knit, so you have full range of motion for picking up the little ones - it feels like a comfy sweater. Mine is a size larger than I typically go for, so it can be easily layered (even over another sweater, like above). But when I wear it alone, the drapiness is such that it never looks too big! This piece is seriously amazing. It is currently retailing on Tamar's website for $99, and also comes in a longer (trench) version for $125. The trench makes a gorgeous dress, especially for work. (Easy to pump in, I'll bet.)
