What is Molly O Designs

Some of our customers who followed Molly O Designs as a upscale children's boutique line are a little confused about what Molly O Designs (MOD) is all about today. We have indeed changed our vision but feel that it is the most amazing change we have ever made.

Those of you that have been attending our in home classes, know all about MOD. Many of you have attended almost every class we offer and are waiting for more. But since not everyone has a MOD stylist in their area to tell them the wonders of the new Molly O, we thought we would give you a little recap.

Our mission at Molly O Designs is to offer women a trendy and social outlet for creating the hottest boutique designs in their home, with their friends, while staying on budget.

Our home based parties offer creative classes that go hand in hand with our philosophy of Creating Your Own Style. By teaching women to create jewelry, unique fashion, accessories and gifts, we are empowering women with a creative skill and sense of accomplishment.

So what kind of classes do we offer? Let me give you a little peek into all the fabulous designs you can learn to make.

You saw our adorable flower brooch in our last post. We LOVE this class because you can create so many different designs from one technique. Besides a urban chic brooch to wear on your clothing, you can also make a flower for your hair or for your little princess.

Or a trendy cocktail ring that just screams Rachel Zoe!

The possibilities are endless!

Let's move on to our Stamped Jewelry class. This is a favorite and just screams Holiday Gift!!

Another adorable class for fall is our applique class. Again, there is something for everyone! We have applique designs for women, infants, girls and boys. Even the hard to please tween/teen! The best part about this class is that there is no sewing machine required!

There are so many more amazing classes! But I don't want to overwhelm you. Click over to http://www.mollyodesigns.com/ to view our full list of classes and to read the details on how to book your own class!

If you are in Las Vegas, our calendar is filling up quickly for fall. So make sure to contact us this week if you would like to book one of our Stylists to teach a class with your friends. info@mollyodesigns.com

In a few weeks we will be opening a new location in Virginia! More on specific territory information coming soon.

Yes, I'm on a Rachel Zoe kick. Love that show. And I secretly dream of having her dress me and give me that look before she says.................."ba-na-nas!" For those of you that don't watch RZ, that means that you look amazing.

So when this little design came together, the first words out of my mouth were bananas! LOVE, love, love this top. Love the flower brooch and the sprinkle of swarovski crystals.

The absolutel best part about this top is that it was created as one of our Molly O classes! We are on a flower kick for fall. These fabulous little accessories are being worn in the hair, on shirts, as shoe embellishments and even as jewelry. And they are so much fun to make!!

I promise that you will have a flower addiction by the end of the class too! There are a thousand different ways to design these flowers. Women and girls of all ages are sporting our flowers. We will have more pictures over the next couple of days that will give you a sneak peek into our Fabulous Flowers class.

If you can't wait, then drop us a line and book your party so you can learn to make them too! info@mollyodesigns.com

It's all about the shoes ladies..............

If you have been to one of our Molly O Designs classes, then you know that our stylists are big on empowering women to bust out of "mommy mode" when it comes to your appreance.

In the coming weeks, we will start a serious of quick tips of how to break out of your mommy style and create a fabulous new look on a budget. You don't have to break the bank or spend hours getting ready. It's the little things that add up.

One of my favorite "go to" items when I need a little boost is a funky and fabulous pair of shoes! Now, here is the Molly O Style rule....... DO NOT pair funky/colorful/crazy/zany shoes with other prints, accessories and all over stuff going on in your outfit.

Take a simple white button down shirt, a great pair of jeans and throw on a pair of shoes like this.

The shoes will pop and I promise that you will have other mommies checking out your new style. I know, I know a few of you are looking at these shoes and thinking, NO WAY! But I promise under a long pair of dark denim jeans they are fabulous. And the best part? They were only $10!!! They just got a lot cuter, didn't they?

If this is too much of stretch for you, then just start off with a great pair of red flats for fall. Pair them with a pair of black pants, a great flitted tshirt and a denim jacket. Add on one of our new Molly O flower brooches to the jacket or your hair and you are ready for anything.

Again, keep it simple on top and let your shoes do the walking.

Molly O Customers Are the Best!

Can I just brag for a minute? Seriously, I love it when a customer comes back to show me what they are up to after taking one of our classes. I feel like a proud momma!

Ellen came up with this stunning wedding shower gift. Can you imagine opening this at your wedding shower? I don't think I would ever take it off. She included the bride and groom's name, their wedding date and even included charms that matched their wedding colors. Ahhhhh.

And if that wasn't enough, then she made necklaces for all the little boys that were coming to her son's birthday party! Who said our classes were just for girls! The little boys wearing these necklaces are probably the "big man" on the playground even as I type. So cute and hip!

Thanks for sharing Ellen. I'm glowing with pride! Keep sending pictures of your Creatively Made projects. I would love to share them here!

A Little Something for Mom and Baby

So often when you go to a baby shower, all the gifts revolve around the baby. But what about the mom? Sometimes she needs to be spoiled too. After all, she is doing all the work.

What better way to celebrate a new baby then to celebrate the mommy as well. We put together a grouping of classes that create the cutest baby gift ever! You can take one class or take them all.

So here is a list of classes that were featured in this sweet gift.

Boutique Baby Burp Cloths
I think moms should get to carry fashion forward burp cloths if they are going to be slung on their shoulder for the first 6 months.

Baby Pouch
Throw in a few diapers and a pack of wipes and you are ready to run. I have to admit that I still use mine with my older kids. Sometimes it is an extra pair of pants/undies for my 3 y.o. or a few little snacks for the older kids. It is more of an everything pouch.

Coffee Cup Cozy
You know every mother is sleep deprieved. So we made her coffee cup fashion fabulous with our reusable coffee sleeves. Of course it has to match all the baby accessories so everyone knows she is a Sassy Mom!

Couture Key Chain
If you don't have one of these key chains, they are a must for any mom carrying a baby, diaper bag, grocery bags and anything else she can hold onto. They are adorable because you can make them to match anything. But they also slip on your wrist so you don't have to dig for your keys! For our mom to be, we added a Starbucks keychain gift card to the link. That way she can grab her coffee on us!

So a little something for Mom and Baby. Can you think of a better gift?! Oh and did I mention that you can do it on a budget? That is the best part of our classes. You create fabulous boutique gifts without breaking the bank. And if you don't have anyone to give them to, then just make them for yourself! Afterall, you deserve it.
