Did you know?

Most of our prints are designed by our in-house artist and designer Caitlin Alderfer! (follow her on Instagram: @CaitlinAlderfer)

How she does it: The process starts with an idea, then moves on to the painting/drawing stage. The designs are then scanned, refined and digitized. Once the elements are ready, then begins the process of creating a repeating pattern, editing or changing colors, and modifying scale.

“Whenever possible, I like to start our original prints outside of the computer, either water coloring or drawing on my iPad Pro. I feel strongly that the hand-done quality adds character and uniqueness to our prints and makes them more special overall.”

Our first pick is this cute dress that our Blogger@loverlygrey (left) has on! It’s our Jesse Flounce Dress in Burgundy and such a staple for the holidays! It’s a  go-to for holiday pictures, church,           or even a night out with old friends! You can wear it alone, or pair it with our Sierra Blanket Vest (right).

During the holiday’s, we found ourselves hanging around the house in our PJ’s, especially on Christmas Eve! Mud Pie wants you to dish your old over sized shirt from college and instead look cute and cozy in our Prim Night Shirt or our Devon Pajama Set

This Fall/Winter season is all about layering and these two pieces are a MUST!   If your girlfriend/wife/sister/daughter/friend does not have either of these in their warm wardrobe, get it for them ASAP! On the left is the Spencer Quilted Vest (comes in navy, black and olive) and on the right is the Hudson Plaid Ruana (comes in red and tan).

Now time for accessories! Just like a woman can never have too many shoes, a woman can never EVER have too many necklaces! Our Rowena Reversible Necklace comes in two different styles, pearl/gold and horn/gold. It is a great addition to any wardrobe because it goes with absolutely everything!!

Our final Mud Pie obsession for our Gift Guide for Her is the Regan Reversible Tote. This vegan leather tote features a solid color on the exterior and reverses to a metallic pebbled finish. We LOVE this piece because it is so versatile and can be switched depending on what you are wearing or where you are going! Now you have a little extra room in your closet to shop other Mud Pie items!

Measure Twice, Buy Once.

November 28, 2014

Getting your accurate measurements is important for many reasons. Whether its for purchasing clothing online, or your best friend is getting married but lives in Katmandu and needs your measurements to get a perfect fit for a bridesmaid dress. Or maybe you’re just simply curious why Sir Mix A lot randomly lists sets of numbers in his lyrics from the 90’s hit song “Baby Got Back”…FYI: he’s measuring the bust, waist, and hip diameter.

Most importantly, knowing your accurate measurements is the first step to getting garments to be the perfect fit.

MEASURING YOURSELF: DO’S AND DON’T’S:

The easiest way to get your own measurements without having it professionally done is to have a friend help you measure.

Do: Ask a friend, or someone close to you. Chances are you probably have a Facebook friend out there searching for the same answers.

Don’t: measure yourself, unless you have 4 arms. Then it’s acceptable.

No new friends?

Don’t: ask a craigslist stranger.

measure twice, buy once

1. Height: Standing against a flat wall without shoes, measure from the floor to the top of the head.
2. Bust: The fullest part of the chest. Measure around the fullest part of the bust and straight across the back.
3. High Bust: Directly under the arms. Straight across the back and above the bust.
4. Natural Waist: Slimmest part of the torso. Tip: Tie elastic around the waist and let it settle naturally at the waistline.
5. Back Waist Length: From the most prominent bone at the base of the neck to the natural waistline.
6. Hip: Around the body at the fullest part. Usually 7-9” below the natural waist.7. Neck Size: Measure around the neck just above the collar bone putting one finger between the tape and the neck, or measure without 1 finger and add ¼” to the final measurement. Round up to the nearest ½”.
8. Sleeve Length: This step is best completed with a friend. It is important that the arm is at the side and slightly bent at the elbow. Place one end of the tape measure at the middle of the back of the neck and run the tape measure across the shoulder and down the outside of the arm to just below the outer wrist bone.
