Ringing in 2012!

Yes, there are days met for sweat pants. But, you have great clothes--so enjoy them! Even on that entire day spent on campus…wear something you love! You'll feel confident in class and pay more attention. {We've heard it helps…}

A maxi. Oxfords. Boyfriend jeans. A mini skirt. We're just asking you to give it a shot. You don't have to buy it. You don't have to wear it. Look, you don't even have to like it. But you should give it a shot. You'd be surprised how much you like that something you've always scoffed at. For me? It was jumpers. Now I have a closet full. 

We can all buy great clothes, but can we wear them well? Mixing pieces makes fashion not only fun, but more affordable. A few great pieces can be turned into five different outfits. Look for us on Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration, as well as our blog where we feature what our staff wears. Feeling lost? Schedule a styling appointment with Chloe!

We don't want you to be breaking the bank by shopping with us. So we offer our customers discounts & deals on Facebook…make sure you like us! We also have a customer loyalty program. Purchase 10 items with us and you get a $20 gift certificate. We also track purchases in our system (make sure we have your email!) so once you reach $500 you also get $20 off--in case you make a big purchase!

No matter what you are wearing you should always feel confident! A dose of confidence will make any outfit look more special. Learn to love your body. Short, tall, curves, skinny or somewhere-in-between…learn to dress for your body-type because you are perfect just the way you are! 

What are your resolutions for the New Year? Any fashion advice for all of our Maude fans?

Staff Style: Meredith

This Motel tunic looks adorable on Meredith. The funky polka dots mixed with the pretty beaded vest create a great contrast. Pairing it with leggings and boots makes the look uber comfy. But don't forget this is a versatile top--tuck in a pair of high-waisted flare jeans for a fun 70s look or pair with a black pant to add a little excitement.

Staff Style: Chloe

Chloe is at it again. Putting together an absolutely adorable outfit. (Which I am most certainly copying!) This lace shirt by Ark & Co is a staff favorite. The lace is gorgeous and the trimming on the top is not only elegant but fun. It certainly pops paired with the red short, but would also look great with a pair of jeans. It is certainly a timeless top. The shorts, certainly on trend being paired with tights, will remain timeless as well--especially if you are a Hog fan! Ladies, these are only $49, p.s. How cute would they be with a wedge and a tank for the first Razorback game of the season?

Staff Style: Chloe

We love this look on Chlo. It's sophisticated but has a little hippie flair. The best part? This maxi can be worn with flats so you not only look comfy, you are! The necklace helps piece it together and the mix of cranberry and black is lovely. Oh, this maxi is marked down to $20. Which is pretty lovely, too.

Staff Style: Jena

Most days at Maude call for one of our amazing pairs of heels, whether a bootie, wedge or pump, but some days call for cute and casual. Spice up your every day cardie & tee look by mixing prints { as seen above }. Did we mention this cardie she's sporting is on sale for $19? A great gift for you or a loved one. Everyone needs a grey cardigan, plus this one has adorable buttons down the sleeves.

Staff Style: Meredith

Meredith's look is one of my favorites. The velvet, flower-print blazer is such an amazing statement piece. The print gives a funky take on a sophisticated staple. Paired with tights, shorts and booties Meredith legs look miles long! Her look is sexy, cute and funky all at the same time. It is a must-try for everyone. Not to mention this Mink Pink blazer is marked down to $25!!!!!!!

Staff Style: Becca

We love this top by Aryn K that Becca is wearing. It looks so cute cinched with a belt and paired with skinnies. It would also look adorable hanging open with a pair of wide leg jeans or even over your favorite LBD with a pair of tights. Becca's bow pumps pull the look altogether. Royal blue works great as a neutral shoe that is way more fun than nude.

Staff Style: Chloe

We are going to be doing a new feature on our blog called Staff Style! We will post pics of what our Maude girls are wearing from day to day to not only give you fashion inspiration but a look at all of the fabulous pieces in our store! As always, comment or call for more details!

We love these printed shorts by Ark & Co. The pink detail looks great with red, blue orange or any other bright color. It allows you to mix color without being over-the-top. Not up for mixing color? Pair them with a black sweater and black tights.

Style Update: Color Blocking

Color blocking is a such a fun, flattering trend. You can not only accent your best parts, but play with color. Here are some of our favorite color blocking dresses, inspired by In Style!

Blogger L.O.V.E.

Here at Maude, we LOVE all things local. So we decided it would be fun to grab a few of our favorite area bloggers, and do a fashion-filled photo shoot.

We chose to showcase blogs we thought the Maude fan would enjoy. Three focused on fashion, interior decor, hair and makeup; one focused on that windy path that can be your 20s; and one dedicated to our mommy clients. (Our owner Becca is mom to a stinkin cute 1-year-old!)

We hope the photos show you no matter your age or style, our clothes are for real women who want to spice up the day-to-day with fun fashion.

A huge thanks to our photographer, Maliah Pinkleton, and all of the ladies who spent their Sunday with us. As well as Kelly Cooper, who did all of the AMAZING hair styles you will see below! Be sure and check out her blog here for some great hair inspiration!

All of the looks below are from Maude! If you are interested in any of the pieces, per usual, give us a buzz or shoot us an email! 479.935.4700,

A true style mavven, living in Little Rock, styling for Dillard's (talk about an awesome job?), her blog is one of our favorites. She does a great job of mixing pieces from all kinds of different price points to create stunning head-to-toe looks. 

This spunky southern girl gives us great insight into what's happening in the world of fashion, decor and more. She adds a personal touch with posts on becoming a wife (don't miss her awesome wedding photos!) as well as her journey getting to this joyous place in her life.

Annye & Jena, Smith & Emma
Smith & Emma is a blog dedicated to young women in their 20s navigating their way through dating, relationships, career and more. They break up the heavy things with posts on current events and trends. With a little humor, and a lot of opinion, they hope sharing their 20s with you will keep you motivated and inspired as you figure out your place in life. 

Anna is a fashion superstar. She has been featured on a number of extremely popular blogs like Apartment 34, Glitter Guide, Dilly Dallas and Style Me Pretty. She also been featured locally in CitiScapes Magazine, At Home Arkansas and local blogs A Blonde Ambition and The Wedding Post. She even styled a photo shoot in Rue (one of our favorite online mags!) You get it, her street cred is more than legit. Look to her blog for fashion inspiration. Her creativity in styling is out of this world. 

Shannon & Gwen, NWA Motherlode
NWA Motherlode is THE source for Arkansas mommies. What makes their blog unique is it exists as a gateway, featuring experts of all sorts - from fashion to food. As mom's themselves, they are putting together an information source from experience, and what can give you more credibility than that? 

Again, a big thank you to everyone! Be sure and check out their blogs Maude fans, you will not be disappointed!
