The 411 on PDR Fabric....

The 411 on PDR Fabric....

Ponte, Ponte di Roma, PDR... What is this? 

Ponte di Roma is defined by The Textile Glossary as:  A fabric made in a double knit construction, usually produced in one color rather than color patterns. This plain fabric has an elastic quality with a slight horizontal line. ... The fabric looks the same on both sides. Weft knitted, interlock based, double jersey structure. 

Ok, so in English, please? Yeah,...keep reading!

PDR is the name of a fabric. It's a thick, double-knit fabric with two-way stretch. Why is two-way stretch so important? That's because it holds your curves (aka shmaltz, as it is known in some circles). Whether you are big or small, if you have anything to 'tuck in', this is the fabric you will want to wear. And for the lucky ladies who have nothing to 'hide', this skirt is a sure winner!

There are a few choices in PDR in the Esteez Collection that you may want to check out:

  • Houston: Simple, basic black pencil skirt
  • Charlotte: Basic pencil skirt with side elastic inserts for added tummy control
  • Madison: Chic black pencil skirt with faux leather elastic panels

And there you have it! That's the #shpeezoftheday

So, what's all the hype about Tencel, anyway???

So, what's all the hype about Tencel, anyway???

'Tencel Micro' is the finest fiber available. It's all-natural and environmentally friendly with a controlled nano-fibril structure. It is a fiber made from cellulose found in wood pulp, and produced on a "closed-loop system", in which 99% of the chemicals used in the process to break down the wood pulp are recovered and recycled with minimal waste. 

This fabric is best known for its unique moisture absorption ability, which in turn makes it breathable, softer, and less prone to wrinkles. The fiber moves moisture away from the body, keeping you cool when it's hot, and warm when it's cold.

Try out our Tencel skirts, you won't regret it! 

Savannah is the knee length version, and the Atlanta is the maxi length version.

Sending some sunshine your way!

I was just on a vacation with my mom. It's our annual mother/daughter trip that we do for quality time together. I highly recommend doing this. Life is precious and if you can get away with your mom/daughter, do not hesitate. Create memories together. We are not here forever, but the memories are. I took this picture from the cabin on our cruise. #nofilter Sending sunshine your way!

So what's the deal with hafrashas challah groups? Here is the FAQ

So what's the deal with hafrashas challah groups? Here is the FAQ

So what's the deal with hafrashas challah groups? Here is the FAQ

1. Can I be part of multiple groups? For every full batch of dough that you make, you can be part of a group. So if you are making one batch, you can be in one group, two batches, two groups. So on and so forth.
2. Am I only allowed to pray for the person who's name I committed for in a group? No. You can pray for as many people or causes as you wish but you cannot be considered as 'one' in any additional groups as discussed above.
3. Can a group say more than one name? According to Rabbi Banon, a Dayan in the Montreal Vaad, it is best to have just one name per group. If however, it is crucial to add a second name, then the group is considered complete only if every single one of the 43 ladies said both names without exception. This is sometimes difficult to achieve and that is why it is recommended to keep it 'one group, one cause'.
4. Can you add a name to a group once the group has already been started? No. For the reason above. If the ladies who already baked had just one name in mind and then you add another name, then the group is not complete according to the rule above.
5. How much flour is considered a complete batch? A complete batch is one that permits you to 'take challah' AND make a Bracha. Please see image for more details.
6. What days of the week do we have to bake, in order to be allowed to join a group? According to Rabbi Banon, the day of the week has no importance. As long as the 43 ladies do their hafrasha in the same week, they can be counted.
7. Why 43 ladies? There is something in the port of numbers. 43 is the numerical equivalence to the Hebrew letters 'ches', 'lamed', and 'hey' which spell out the Hebrew word 'challah'.

And that's the 'shpeez of the day'!

Guess who made it to Fashionisha's 2016 Chanuka Gift List?

Guess who made it to Fashionisha's 2016 Chanuka Gift List?

Yes, that's right! The Esteez Denim skirts!

Chanuka is around the corner, and if you need to buy a gift for a woman, here it is....

And if your husband needs to buy you a gift, let your fingers do the walking, and walk right over to the denims section of our site and get yourself one of our denim skirts.

We promise that the 'butter denim' fabric of these skirts will make you feel like you  are in pajamas. And just a friendly piece of advice,... don't dare to just get it in one color because you will FOR SURE want it in both colors once you try it, and why pay for shipping???

Keep in mind that they are made a little big, and they have an indescribable stretch, so make sure to size down.

And don't forget that you still have time to enter the shpeez contest ...

If you send us your pics wearing anything Esteez, by January 1st, your pic may be chosen to be featured on our social media pages and you will receive a $50 gift card to get more Esteez stuff! 

 Here is Fashionisha's Chanukah 2016 Gift list!

Snug fit? Relaxed fit? Sleeveless? Slinky? Cotton? What's the shpeez?

Snug fit? Relaxed fit? Sleeveless? Slinky? Cotton? What's the shpeez?

In today's day and age, shells have become a staple in women's wardrobes. They are the 'basic essentials' of fashion. Worn by women of all walks of life, shells serve many different purposes.

Base-layering: There are many reasons to wear shells for base layering. Modesty purposes, protection from cold weather conditions, under scrubs,...

At Esteez, we found that a large part of our clientele were purchasing our shells in larger sizes in order to wear them as basic tops. To cater to our loyal customers, we decided to introduce a new item to our collection, and that is how the 'Relaxed fit' shells were born. Use the relaxed fit version as a plain, basic tee, with a skirt or a pair of jeans. 

The snug fit shells were the original ones, manufactured as a second skin, with the intention for base-layering. Use the snug fit shells to wear under your dresses, cardigans or vests.

The latest shell we have introduced, is our lightweight sleeveless shells. They are super comfy, made with our very own blend of Cotton and Spandex. Worn by many for base layering, and by others as plain sleeveless tees.

Please make sure to use our size charts when deciding which shell fit is the right one for you. The size chart is located on our product pages, and I will add it below as well.

So what's the difference between the slinky ones and the cotton ones? Well, they both are made of delicious fabrics, but they are so so different. No need to elaborate too much on the cotton ones, as that is quite obvious. The Esteez secret blend of Cotton and Spandex gives off a very soft and stretchy material. The 'slinky' shells are made of a silky fabric that is typically used for dressier outfits. It's a very thin fabric that will almost feel like you are not wearing anything at all. 

And that's the shpeez of the day!

Laundry symbols

Do you dislike laundry as much as I do?

Today's shpeez is all about laundry.

If you are anything like me, you probably don't understand how the piles of laundry just pile themselves up daily. No matter how much laundry I do, it always seems like it hasn't been done in weeks. And you know how it is, the minute all the baskets are empty, *someone* is changing their clothes and coming to throw their dirty laundry into the baskets. *yay me*.

Well I don't have any magic potion to make laundry disappear, but I do have something else that comes in very handy when doing laundry for a bunch of people who wear a variety of different clothing. It's a clear list of the laundry symbols you will find on virtually every article of clothing (unless *someone* was annoyed by it, and ripped it off!). 

I urge you to print it, and keep it in your laundry room, or near your washing machines. I am a firm believer that if you wash your clothing as suggested by the manufacturer, the clothes should have a longer life. 

I have a ton of shpeez to fold, so, I bid you farewell til the next time. 

Happy laundering!
