We are thrilled to announce that Cori Robinson is the curator for our March Mommy Mailbox. Her site, Dress Corilynn features the best fashion around, from her timeless clothing line to her classy mommy outfits. I can personally testify... you'll get lost in her blog for hours. Such a talent and we have loved working with her the past couple months!
Your dresses are always on our must-have lists for every occasion. Tell us how you started Corilynn and Co.
For a long time, I just wore jeans and t-shirts because I had a hard time finding clothes that fit how I wanted them to. Then one day, I realized, oh wait, I do want to look like an adult, I do want to look put together. I started out by designing things for myself and soon people asked me if I made them for other people. My grandmother taught me to sew when I was a child and it has remained a passion for me. She was a seamstress who did custom work for people in the 1950s. The best teacher!
What are some of your favorite style tips for moms on the go?
There are so many wardrobe hacks you can use to still look put together. Simple things ,like adding a scarf or wearing distressed boyfriend jeans, are awesome for moms because they are stylish but so functional. You can go to the park and get dirty but still look cute. Ballet flats give you the effect of a stiletto without the heel and come in so many colors and bows. Throwing on a button up and a sweater always looks put together but is just as functional as wearing a t-shirt.
Any upcoming exciting things about your business?
We do a rolling release and are always coming out with new things. We’ll be adding some things for the home this year and I’m really excited about that.
