Lets talk about that bloody wonderful body of yours!
The mental health foundation have chosen Body Image as the focus this mental health week 13-19th May. Body image , we all have our own perceptions of it some days it’s amazing and other days you feel like nothing fits , nothing looks good on you and your mind is playing tricks on you . As women it’s possibly one of the biggest challenges in life, be Body confident and love the skin you are in. Personally , I think the MHF have made a great choice by choosing Body image . With the accessibility of social media , filters and photoshop it’s hard to know what reality is, and the extra pressure we feel around the need to be perfect and have the perfect body has never been so prevalent . Here at Moo we really value our customers and want them to feel they have had a great shopping experience often coming away with something that’s pushed the customers boundaries . We also know the challenges and difficulties women face especially the 40 plus age group as our bodies naturally change . We encourage you to go with how you feel when trying something on, don’t get caught up with a size of an outfit . We see women go into the changing room and come out strutting in an outfit they would never have considered . One of the areas we see women struggling with is when they have lost weight and they still buy clothes for their previous shape and size . The mind continues to trick you that you haven’t done enough to deserve that different style or a size smaller . When actually you have achieved a great milestone in reaching your goal .This week we wanted to remind all of us that the female body is pretty fabulous in which ever form it takes. 95% of women are NOT happy with their bodies!!, just goes to show what we must be doing to ourselves on a daily basis. A rather shocking statistic. 95%!!!! and we see lots of you in our changing rooms, us included, slamming our thighs, arms, legs, tummy's, boobs, bum, feet. You name it we've heard it. Without that body we wouldn't be here and neither would the human race. THIS WEEK IS BODY POSITIVE WEEK at MOO we are being positive about our bodies and we want to help you be positive about yours. We know there are parts of the body you feel uncomfortable with and we are here to help you dress to flatter and fix. Its all down to optical illusion. This week sees the launch of our "Personal Shopping Experience", a totally unique experience that can do a number of things for our customers. If you want to update your appearance, or feel you've lost your confidence, or have a specific event coming up or just fancy some time getting ideas together with our experienced crew this could be for you. Personal shopping aims to make the whole experience a breeze, we will simplify the science of styling and reduce the time and stress involved in trying to find those perfect items. If you fancy a session give us a ring, or pop in, book your personal shop slot and leave the rest to us. 0161 432 8808. Above all CONFIDENCE is the key to good style and we want you to find your body confidence and Rock it like a pro We styled each other during our styling training, the results were pretty fantastic.. we discovered that each of us had a different body shape and that each persons style was totally different too. Just goes to show how important it is for us to understand our customers, needs, hang ups and lifestyle before we try to put them in an outfit that they wouldn't ever wear again. Pics below, from our training event and if you want to get booked in for your own personal styling session just give us a ring. Love the skin your in Moo crew xxxx
MOO and NABS make a horrifyingly good Fashion Show!!
From the minute the models came for their fittings we knew it was going to be a good one. We'd encouraged NABS to change the format and use real people involved in their industry charity to model our collections. Moo favours having fabulous women of all shapes and sizes to showcase our pieces for several different reasons and it never lets us down. The atmosphere was electric, the models were fantastic, the clothes were amazing (obviously) and the venue was stunning!! The charity raised a record amount for that event and we had an absolute BALL! Photographs by Bernard at Ashton Photographic
Classic White Isle Style...
Classic White Isle Style will forever and always be thankfully, practically and beautifully linked to a slightly bohemian-hippy-laid-back-I-made-very-little-effort-here kind of vibe. Be sure to pack a couple of kaftan-y type dresses to throw over your bikini. The traditional and sophisticated Ibiza colour palette is very much clean crisp white, but then when you’re out at night getting your groove on - especially if you’re planning on making an appearance at Pacha’s Flower Power or Circoloco, you can definitely make room for some bright animal print crazy-hot colour ways in your suitcase. The club everyone has always and will always be literally raving about is the one and only Space, which has recently been reformed as Hï - Ibiza. So if your itinerary allows, get yourselves to Glitterbox on a Friday; a club night that is everything you’ve ever dreamed and more. At Glitterbox you will (obvs) be wearing glitter on your body, be it glittery neon paint, shiny dust and/or a dress like the Moo sequin slouchy number right here (ladies, we’ve got you ;)) Thank the Universe that for a while now, the comfiest trainers and pumps have been the height of fashion. Throw a pair of cool kicks on with a floaty flirty dress, or some sandals that don’t fall off your feet.(Note: high heels in Ibiza are pretty much unnecessary and often a hindrance when walking through dusty Old Town roads or Santa Eularia beaches post-daytime cocktail number 6, but of course, if you wanna rock out some wedge espadrilles, this will always be sexy and acceptable.) The Golden Illa Blanca Rule: invest in one amazing day-to-night bag. Large enough to fit your sunnies, waterproof mascara, bronzer, bright lippy, miniature perfume and of course your credit card for when you and your girls find yourselves sharing a table with some 20-something handsome hotties down at Nikki Beach. We've got your back Ibiza babes - check out this perfect combination of ibiza outfits as selected by our very own Mrs Moo.Look out as she will be our on the ground live in Ibiza reporting in on all thing Fun, Fashion and Ibiza.Until next time.The Ladies That Love To Moo xxx
Where do women shop?
Soooo, I've been wondering why Moo has got such a fab following of women over a certain age! I had a little look online for shops and websites for women over 40, and not very much came up. Now is that because fashion is losing its ageism?! I certainly hope so, or is it because there isn't much choice full stop. Our womens range spans across a number of ages, and the fashion we offer can work for women aged 20 to 80 depending on your style. We think it is important to dress your shape rather than your age, as you get older taste becomes defined and people can be who they want to be without worrying about what others may think. Just thought I'd put this out there, if you are looking for style and you are a woman we think Moo is for you. Check out our website or come in and we will be happy to help. Whatever your style make sure you rock it... Love the Moo Crew x
Feedback Forum - Sonia Chorlton, Emma Heaton Moor, Naomi Heaton Moor Store Like the clean modern look, Clothes stand out. Would like a jewellery section because they get missed and you only look at it at the end of your shop, Show them better and show prices easily. Staff Like the fact that you don’t feel hounded, always asked if they are ok browsing which makes them feel comfortable. Happy to browse and come back when have time. Very friendly good service always feel happy to ask if need me. Trust our staff, they will say if something isn’t right. Product Different but wearable, have a good formula, do find it comes in waves, sometimes there isn’t anything right for them but other times want everything. Up and down. Feel the product is classic and has longevity. Some feel they would only buy for an occasion, and wouldn’t buy every day pieces due to price. Good lengths on dresses now, they are below the knee and work for different ages. Would like to see bootcut jeans and different styles maybe monkee jeans. What we could improve Steam clothes, looks bad when things are creased. Put prices on FB and Instagram, takes too long to find the price out if it isn’t on there. Website is sometimes incorrect, when things are out of stock its annoying to go into it and it be wrong. Images take too long load. They need to be faster and it needs to move quickly, overall quite like the look of the website its simple. What would you add Preview nights, new brands, invite a select number of people, maybe just 20 for different brands and preview what’s coming in. A good loyalty programme that’s linked to purchases and offers. Gift bags at events. Have a what’s coming in section, for example people would wait if they knew we were getting in a mac and they wanted one. Something where customers can see product due in. Marketing Remarket web links and prices on social media, always boost as you have been otherwise don’t see you. Images need to be smaller on web. Market everyday wear, the lower price point, highlight when something is from premium range and lower price point. Check emails bouncing as incorrect email address. Go to companies or invite them here for style parties, discount offering. Unlock wi-fi in the shop so people can browse when they are in the shop. Don’t’ care who is on the pictures, as long as you can see the clothes on it doesn’t matter at all who it is all were totally indifferent to who is modelling, it is quite nice that it’s the owner but don’t really look at her just look at the clothes.
