Fashion Gibson X The Motherchic

The Sunshine Collection

March 19, 2020
gibson x the motherchic laguna maxi

I started writing this post and realized that I was just reciting the lyrics from “Lean on Me”. Which is fitting not only because of the current landscape of the world, but also because I was able to call on my friends. And they all showed up (figuratively) and with a smile on their face. We were supposed to have a big photo shoot with all the fixings, but ended up having to do it remotely (with their husbands behind the camera – thanks guys!) However, I have a feeling that you will all like these photos just as much. We were able to drop off a few outfits from the Sunshine Collection to some family members and local friends earlier this week. The ladies styled their looks and snapped some photos. And the result was just fantastic – these ladies are truly stunning inside and out.

    LOVE the new line! So Spring/Summer happy which is what we need in this season. Where did you get the Buenos Dias tee?

    I can’t EVEN tell you how happy I am to see a woman who is the same size as me wear a long dress. I ordered several pieces yesterday including the maxi thinking I would likely be returning it because I have NEVER owned a long dress (because they are ALWAYS too long). After seeing Kirsten rock it with no issues I am sooooo excited to get mine!! Thanks again for thinking of us teeny tinies.

    Everything is sooo cute! Where did Kristen get the heels she is wearing; the ones with the clear straps?

    I like the normal shots better than the staged. It shows the real look. Well done!

    Love the photographs of your mom and her friend. You mom is more my size but my bustline is more like her friend’s proportions. Keep having them model for the “grandma” contingent of your followers (you and your kids are the same ages as my grandkids–although they are all girls). One of them is already eyeing a few of the Gibson items from now and the past that she might “inherit” later on.

    I have been reading your blog for awhile and I have to say these real pictures are the best ones I have seen. Just real women, in all sizes wearing a beautiful line. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to see pictures that aren’t filtered beyond reality but authentic. I hope in the future you will do more shoots like this, and less of the what seems to be “perfect” shots. More of how people are actually seen and less of how we want people to see us. Thank you for your refreshing fashion blog in a world where social media is manipulating the minds of everyone to be perfect, I hope others follow in your steps.

    I’m 5’3 and short waisted, I love so many of your looks but feel like they would make me look fat or really accentuate my short waist. Are any of your models short waisted? Also what brand are the jean jackets you all are wearing?

don’t miss a post
