Buy Curious: Help Mom Throw Away the Mom-Jeans


You gotta love moms: they wiped our butts, fed our screaming mouths, and still loved us even after we went through our freeloading phase. This weekend, show her what a useful, successful citizen you've become by giving her a little something, whether it's a pair of Viv & Ingrid earrings or a healthful, slow-cooked meal. And cause you need a little rewarding too, check out a fabulous fashion show and spring sale in W.C. Details after the jump.

Make Mom an "Urban Darling"
South Bay-based Urban Darling (aka Corinne Phipps) wants to help your mom throw away her mom jeans (you know, that pleated, above the belly-button style), and all those other ill-fitting clothes that so many moms succumb to. (Personally, I fear the running shoes paired with khaki capris and a sweater set … dear god, no….) Just in time for Mother's Day, she has launched the "Urban Mommy Overhaul", to help moms clean out their closets and re-outfit their "post-baby bodies." Promising that she's "accessible, affordable, green-minded, and mommy-trained" (is that similar to potty-trained?), Phipps says "moms have left with tears in their eyes." Hugs also work.
