I guess Jillian Michaels didn’t get the memo about Amanda Uprichard. We discovered her a few years back when we were looking for bright colored fashion for many of our TV appearances, and we fell in love with her!
You can pair an AU top with just about anything…pants, jeans, skirts, and she is all about fun and sexy. You can always pair her tops with a blazer for a meeting or jean jacket for a fun night out. When you’re a mom, everyone knows that just dressing up can feel so good. Throwing on heels can even lift the mood. So to find a top with color or a fun print that’s silky on the body, is a keeper.
We can’t wait for her Spring and Summer collection. She finds the most beautiful silk fabrics in the most spectacular bright colors. We often hide or shy away from color in the Winter, but if you think about it, we need color to get us through the cold, dark and sometimes depressing East Coast Wintery days. My great grandmother also once said that wearing color is a sign of confidence. Women who wear color look and feel confident.

Oh and by the way Amanda is a Mom to a teenage daughter too and she has worked her butt off to get to where she is today and she once told us that her daughter still remembers the sound of her sewing machine going all night long down in her basement. So it can start in a basement, it can start in a garage, it can start anywhere and anytime. You just have to go for it like Amanda! We might just have to giveaway an AU top in our next Fashion Friday post.
(PS Jillian Michaels is so great by the way. We talked about her new book, Yeah Baby!
Have a Fashionable Friday and Fun weekend Mamas!
