New Moms: Look Prettier in Minutes



  • We love this because it's the kind of dress you just feel good wearing: It covers those after-baby bulges with a hip style that works for a casual holiday party or the office. (Kate D'Arcy, $80; toggerycollection.com)



  • Most of us have been there: we look down in the supermarket and realize we've still got our slippers on. These shantung silk ballerina slippers double as gorgeous shoes...Eva Longoria's bridesmaids all wore a pair! ($20; dearfoams.com)


  • New moms and jeans don't normally get along... but check out this totally wearable style from Anoname. The low (but not too low!) waist, stretchy fabric, and boot-leg cut will make you one hot mama. ($78; denimrack.com)



  • The celebs all seem to be wearing chunky jewelry this season. The orange Rock stretch bracelet is a fun take on the trend that's priced right for the rest of us. (comes in five other colors, $18; rimistyle.com)



  • The stunning natural red coral sterling necklace turns a jeans-and-tee outfit into something special. ($45; wingshawaii.com.)



  • The Adventure Cross-Straps are comfy as a sneaker, but look like stylish mary janes. We like the pale aloe; other colors are available. ($39.50; llbean.com.)


  • One less thing to worry about if you're flying with your baby over the holidays. The Plane Friendly Travel Kit contains five yummy-smelling, luxe toiletries, all sized (and packaged in a clear bag) for carry-on. ($25; cakebeauty.com.)


  • Going green gets glamorous with these dazzling earrings, handmade from red wine bottles. (Chardonnay and pinot grigio also offered, $32; uncommongoods.com.)


  • Pedicures aren't exactly on your to-do list lately, but come winter, your feet are sorely in need of pampering. Treat your tootsies to The 60-Second Pedicure, a fast scrub with Dead Sea salts, pomegranate, and other luscious, all-natural exfoliaters. ($25; barielle.com.)


  • If anyone deserves a splurge, it's you. This eye-catching turquoise on vanilla glass ring is a pretty pop of color that won't blow your diaper budget. ($45; uncommongoods.com.)


  • Who's got time to re-apply lipstick? You're lucky to get it on in the first place. Rise and Shine Plumping Lip Stain to the rescue: it¿s water-resistant for real staying power, with coconut oil so it stays shiny. ($21; tartecosmetics.com.)


  • No, you're not wide awake, but you can fake it with the make-up artist's secret: white eyeliner. Red Earth's Magic Line in White Luna is seriously long-lasting. ($13; ulta.com.)


  • Perk up bleary eyes with the Rest Assured Brightening Wand. One side is a pink eyeliner; the other, a sheer pink highlighter to add a well-rested glow to eyes or cheeks. How¿s that for a sweet dream? ($22; tartecosmetics.com.)
