My love of Kim and her website Desire4Mo is well-known, but I feel like it's worth writing about again. Kim/D4M has outfitted so many events in my life now, that I almost feel like she's part of my family. Ok, well part of my wacky online family, but still.
She's a working mom who started a business to make a better life for her family, and I think her stuff is totally rockin'. Take a look at all the cool items she's hooked me (and mine) up with, and I'll provide links to all the items in case you want them for your own:
Sherri Cola Costume in my new promo photos!
I have a love of all things retro/vintage/50s and I was so, so, so excited to wear this in my new promo photos. It's totally kitchy and ridiculous, and totally me. I wanted something fun to wear, and Kim was happy to provide it. The costume itself is really comfortable and flattering and completely adorable for any sock-hop type of party.
And speaking of 50's:
I had found this costume in a thrift store over the summer for $6, and I really wanted to wear it to one of my Halloween parties. I didn't have any saddle shoes, but I knew who would: www.desire4mo.com . And let me tell you, they were COMFY! I was out with 6 other girls that evening walking around Harvard Square, and I was the ONLY one who was in comfortable footwear. Score one for my tootsies!
I was even able to find the perfect adorable costume for my stepdaughter on Halloween:
Britt's Sailor Cutie Costume
Now granted, if you saw the model wearing this on the website, you probably wouldn't immediately think, "this is perfect for a 12 yr old!" But considering Britt's height vs. the model, and how easy it is to style something down, I had a feeling this would be adorable - and I was right.
We put little freckles all over her face, and I was just waiting for her to break out into some Shirley Temple songs. (Although I'm pretty sure she doesn't even know who that is. Sigh.)
For a gal like me who is celebrating a new phase and new image in my life, www.desire4mo.com has so many options to help me feel purty. Here are a few of the other items I've gotten from Kim that I absolutely love:
Mesh Mini Jacket - A WLS Post-Op's Dream Come True!
This was a HUGE hit when I reviewed it onYouTube(review of this starts at 2:44). What I love about this mesh jacket: 1) it totally conceals that batwings 2) it can convert any sexy dress into something a little more wearable 3) at $18, it's totally affordable and absolutely a great investment for your wardrobe.
And don't tell me you don't LOVE THIS HOTNESS:
4 INCH SLINGBACK MARABOU HEELS
I wear these to the grocery store. Ok, no I don't, but I would if I didn't think I get looks. I love, love, love these sexy shoes! In fact, I just booked a Burlesque show for February, and these will DEFINITELY be included int he show. How could they NOT be?!
I'm a big fan of supporting small business, especially when it's a working mom taking care of her family. And even more so when that small business offers hot, hot items. Desire4Mo is your one-stop-shop for all things girly and sexy: dresses, clothing, swimsuits, costumes, shoes, accessories, and more.
Kim also offers a 10% discount using the code "DIVAT", so go and get your shop on and tell Kim I said hello!
