    Ponte– What did you say?

    Ponte pants are all the rage this fall 

    Ruby Ribbon has added 2 styles of ponte pants and a ponte skirt to the already fabulous line!

    You get the feeling of a legging while getting the look of a more structured dress pant.

    Ponte pants should not be baggy, they should fit like a legging giving your body an elongated slimmer appearance all while dressing a little classier.

    What to wear with Ponte?  Since the pant or skirt is structured and therefore a little on the heavier side you should wear something light and flowy to offset the structure of the pants/skirt.  Even those these pants look like traditional dress slacks instead of leggings we need to treat them as if they were leggings and wear a longer top with them.

    Check out Ponte for your closet this fall!

    Ponte is going to take you through the winter because they are heavier than traditional leggings but can still be worn as leggings!  The possibilities for these pants are endless!

    Introductions and welcome to my blog

    I am a college instructor by day, medical coding to be exact but I teach all the allied health classes like med term, anatomy, disease, coding…. I absolutely love my job so I never really thought about social commerce, but when the opportunity to become a Ruby Ribbon stylist came to me last year I jumped on the opportunity.  I can now say I am an independent stylist for Ruby Ribbon now as my second job, I am a crafter by night sell a little on ETSY and I blog about my crafts here.  I love to scrapbook and make jewelry so along with other posts you will definitely see some DIY craft related blog posts!

    The purpose of this blog is to mainly showcase Ruby Ribbon, I want to also review fashion, tech/gadgets, share recipes, tutorials, craft DIYs, pinterest finds, shopping deals I find,  Travels and much more!

    Where did the blog name come from, more than girdles well one day I was explaining to someone what Ruby Ribbon was and they said “oh you sell girdles” I replied “oh but we are more than girdles!” and thus a blog was born.

    I hope you enjoy reading this blog!  Look for opportunities to guest blog, giveaways and Ruby Ribbon promotions!
