Hot Mammas & Hip Mommies – By Fashion Model Evelyne Verpaalen

April 25, 2013 by Evelyne Verpaalen

Hey guys. As some of you might know, I have been living in the USA for a while now, but I am still traveling quite a bit. When I am traveling I always love to look around, do a little sightseeing, try good restaurants and SHOP!

I am always on the look out for unique affordable brands and just cool stuff you don’t find everywhere.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Zara and H&M but I was a little disappointed when they opened a store in Miami Beach. I live there and ‘the beach’ is quite small so the uniqueness of your style kind of disappears. I used to stock up on those brands while in Europe; so back in Miami I would have fashion that nobody else had seen. Now, if I go out, wearing a Zara dress, chances are you bump in to another girl dancing in exactly the same little number and that is exactly what I don’t like.

On my web store I select cool fashion that isn’t available on every street corner. My favorite items this month are the Ellis Beach Wear tropical bikini and the bow-tie baby bib from House of Jamie.

The Hot tropical bikini is available in different shapes of top and bottom: from chic strapless top to plunging halter and from daring string, to cheeky briefs. There is also a cool retro high waist bottom for that old Hollywood glamour fashion feel.

With summer, comes a lot of babies! I don’t know about you guys, but around me there is a baby boom happening! My problem has always been: what to give to a new hip mommy? Well, I found the solution. I stumbled upon the cutest new baby label called ‘House of Jamie’. The brand has the coolest bow-tie bibs and pacifier cords with a huge bow. I also love the soft bath capes and blankets; everything has a little bow detail finish, which makes it really sophisticated (

With love,
