Urban Decay Brow Tamer

If you think that your unruly brows make you look like an angry, woolly octogenarian, you need Urban Decay's Brow Tamer. I know what you're thinking: "I don't want to look like an otherworldly mannequin with plastic eyebrows," and I sympathize. But the Brow Tamer will give you total control over every hair without being sticky or gross, and it'll make your brows look fuller and thicker, too.

5 Plus Size Fashion Rules That Need to Be Retired

By Chantel Delulio

Shopping for plus size clothing while maintaining an interest in current fashion can feel on par with trying to ride a bike with the training wheels soldered on even though you're a full grown adult. "Sure, you can take part of the jumpsuit resurgence. Just make sure you adhere to this list strict list of Universally Agreed Upon colors, cuts, and prints. It's for your own safety." 

Style soothsayers have long espoused the same plus size fashion rules that are ostensibly meant to be helpful when putting together flattering outfits. Unfortunately, they've also ended up being a guide on how to take all the fun and joy out of one's personal style.

Take back your wardrobe and ditch these five plus five fashion rules.

Step Away From the Chico's: 5 Stores to De-Frump Your Mom Look

By Kirsten Clodfelter

Where are moms supposed to buy clothes that are still on trend and don't cost a gazillion dollars but that don't come from Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe? (Y'all. The clothes there are SO TINY. They're basically made for kid's baby dolls.) I will likely never wear super low-rise anything again in my lifetime, and I'm hella okay with that, but I'm also just not ready for mom jeans. (*Note: I am begrudging no one their mom jeans. If you're comfortable in what you're wearing, I think you look beautiful. And actually mom jeans are apparently in fashion now anyway. So.)

I searched THE WHOLE INTERNET for you, Outblush Mamas, and here's what I found...

Alohas Sandals

Okay, it's July. You probably have six new pairs of sandals lining your shoe rack. But if we can entice you to spring for another pair, our pick would be these Alohas Sandals ($80). The handcrafted shoes are easy to slip on - wear the back strap behind your heel or over the bridge of your foot - and ultra comfy with their supple leather uppers and cushy rubber soles. Trust us, your feet will thank you for not making them walk around in another pair of bedazzled and braided pleather thongs you bought on a whim from a big box store sale end cap.

GoGo Selfie Stick

Is using a selfie stick dorky? Probably. But when was the last time you passed your phone to a stranger and got a photo you loved? Or tried to take a picture in front of something cool but your #bighairdontcare got in the way of the scenery? Considering it's vacation season, we're taking a stand to defend selfie enhancers like the GoGo Selfie Stick ($25). We got to try one out and we'll even share this pro tip with you: you can also use them to take pictures of cats that are hiding from you under beds.

Sea Embroidered Shorts

Embroidery is timeless. It also happens to be one of our favorite summer trends. If you've got some spare Benjamins to spend, we think you should invest in a lovely pair of embroidered shorts, like these ones ($385) by Sea. They'll look smart during weekend luncheons and trendy while you're out at happy hour. If you've got a flexible "business casual" office, we bet you could even wear them dressed up with heels and a tucked in blouse.

Amy Poehler Tina Fey Action Figures

You can't hear us squee-ing, but that's exactly what we're doing over here at Outblush headquarters. This SNL Weekend Update Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Action Figure Set ($30, pre-order) is the best thing we've seen all week - no, all year! Not only does it come with posable figurines, but the box itself unfolds into the Weekend Update desk. You can have hours of fun directing your own hilarious SNL skits while you wait to hear back from Lorne Michaels about that casting tape you made a few years back. Of course, there is one catch - the action figure set is a limited run and will only ship out to pre-order customers if it doesn't sell out at the San Diego Comic-Con 2015 in July.
