Brand Feature – IguanaMed

2 Apr

IguanaMed makes high-performance, fashion-forward scrubs for today’s medical professionals. They started with creating an innovative fabric blend to deliver a breathable, flexible, and durable scrub that meets the needs of today’s working professionals better than the traditional scrub does. These Med Flex fabrics, specifically Med Flex II, which includes spandex for easy of movement as part of its tri-blend, are what make the products so appealing. The sporty, creative designs are also a big part of the company’s growing popularity.

We have some great scrubs from IguanaMed in our store. You can check out all the IguanaMed scrubs on AllHeart, or take a look at some of my favorites below. They come in a few great neutral color options, so you can mix and match styles and fabrics.

IguanaMed Eco-Chic Henley Scrub Top

Eco-Chic Henley Scrub Top

Soft and easy peasant styles are one of the most important blouse statements of the season. Feminine, yet natural, this summertime top has appeared in all designer and contemporary lines. We love the little puff sleeves, open banded neck and henley button front, and have kept the front pockets going as we know how important these are to you.

IguanMed Truegreen Bootcut pant

IguanaMed Trugreen Bootcut Pant

Utterly new and utterly feminine, we love mixing our eco bamboo woven fabric with our knit skinz fabric. Everything is included in this fashion pant: elastic all around the waist for comfort AND a dropped drawstring tie for size adjustment, slenderizing back leg seam and stitching, and soft rounded patch pockets in the front with just a hint of feminine gathering.

IguanaMed Med Flex V Gather Top

Med Flex V Bottom Gather Top

This is another of our most fashionable tops to truly update your medwear wardrobe. The fashion winds are shifting from slim and tight to big and full. Looser, easier tops have surfaced with lots of gathering, shirring, pleating. The banded bottom here that now has gathering and a drawcord creates a new hemline and shape called “blouson”. Tied at the side for ease and comfort, we’ve also put a bit of fullness at the shoulder yoke and softened the sharp point of the v neck shape to make it feminine. Give it a try, we think you’ll like it!

IguanMed Med Flex V Elastic Waist Bootcut Pant

IguanaMed V Elastic Waist Bootcut Pant

Sometimes you need a totally flat front pant free of pleats, gathers, elastic, drawstrings. In that case, our core clean front pant fits the bill, but has enough detail to keep it interesting looking. The L shape slash pockets that are double needle top stitched define the style while we’ve kept the ever popular side slit at the leg opening. The waist band in front is also flat, but we’ve elasticized the back for needed comfort and ease.

Spring Fashion Kick-Off

22 Mar

Spring is on its way, and while the usual thoughts of spring showers and spring cleaning may not entice and thrill, our new spring fashions sure will. What better way to kick off our new spring fashions than with new shoes (slight pun intended!).

From Clogs, Oxfords, Slip-ons, and Sneakers to T-straps and Mary Janes, all your favorite brands have versions of all your favorite shoes. Merging style with comfort and function, Cherokee, Dansko, Sketchers, and Avia are catering to the medical professionals with their new styles.

The classic white shoe is a staple for any nurse on the job, and we wouldn’t disappoint. Every one of our lines has come out with new shoes in white for the season; most of which provide slip-resistance, supportive insoles, and increased breathability.

Sketchers Hobbie Mary Jane Nursing ShoeMy pick for a cute new white shoe: “Hobbie” Mary Jane Shoe for Women by Skechers. Slip-resistant, cushioned, and adorable, they would look good on the job or off. Every girl loves a versatile shoe, even more so when it’s cute and comfortable.

Sketchers is a new line at AllHeart and the sneakers are a great, fashionable way to be comfortable at work all day. A selection of their shoes are also available in black.

And if you’re more adventurous, we’ve got that covered too. Dansko’s new line has reinvented their best with great materials, colors, textures and prints. The “Professional” clog now comes in tooled leather, brushed leather, patent leather, leopard and tiger prints just to mention a few.

Dansko Professional ClogNow, I’d probably be the girl to rock all the best print scrub tops out there, so my choice would be Dansko “Professional” Pull-Up Leather Medical Clogs for Women in Indigo; a great looking natural shoe with that pop of color. It’s another one that could be just as great with a pair of jeans. Functional with a bit of fun, another great quality for another great pair of shoes!

Scrubs Fashionista

5 Dec

I read an article a few days ago about ideas for jazzing up your scrub wardrobe. Wearing monochromatic scrubs can get rather monotonous, and after reading this article, I thought I would put my style talents to work. Since Cherokee makes great scrubs that appeal to almost everyone, I took advantage. I love Cherokee scrubs for the same reasons you probably do. They always seem to have a great fit, wash well, and there is a style for just about everything and everyone!

So without further ado, here is my attempt at working as a Scrubs Fashionista!

How about this V-Neck top in the Eco Floral Pattern with these cute straight legged cargo pants in chocolate brown?

Or check out this “keyhole” top. It looks like a classic tunic with the mild v-neck and side vents. It would look great paired with these “Touch” drawstring cargo pants in turquoise. These pants have the added benefit of being soft as can be!

Here’s another cut I really like from Cherokee—the empire waist top. Pair this top in the “Papavero” or “Modern Dot” print with these low-rise flare leg scrub pants in black and you could almost stop at a happy hour on your way home from work!

What is your favorite Cherokee inspired outfit?

Women of All Shapes and Sizes

27 Oct

I just came back from a much needed, and rarely had treat – a manicure and pedicure. Part of the fun in blocking out the world while someone else tackles my hands and feet is the chance to indulge in magazines I never have time to read. As I sunk into the massaging chair and dunked my feet in the swirling water, I started flipping through the pages of the November 2nd issue of People. The first thing that grabbed me was a short blurb on a model who is 5’10, 120 pounds and, according to People Magazine, was fired by Ralph Lauren because she was too large to fit into the sample clothes used in their ads. She is considered too heavy to be a model at a size 4. Too heavy to be a model at a size 4? Have we lost our minds?

As nurses we see women and men of all shapes and sizes and we know that the average woman isn’t a size 0 (how can you be no size at all?). In fact, Wonderquest says the average American woman is just shy of 5’4 and weighs 152 pounds – about a size 14. I’m not commenting about the obesity epidemic in the United States, just the idea that a woman who is 5’10 and 120 lbs could be considered too heavy to model.

So, why aren’t “real women” in our magazines? Next in my pile happened to be the November issue of Glamour where I discovered a “plus-size” model, Lizzie Miller, had been making headlines all over the news because of an almost nude picture in the September issue of Glamour where you see her not so flat belly. A real women’s belly! After getting all kinds of positive attention, Glamour did a photo shoot for their November issue with 7 “plus-size” models. To Glamour’s credit, apparently they had used 6 of these 7 women in the past (and plan to continue the trend). Almost all had stories of starving themselves to fit into the size 0 world of modeling.

After devouring this article, I read the editor’s column. On that page they showed models through the years that included Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor – true beauties and women who were on the cover of many magazines in the ‘40’s and ‘50’s. Today, Ms. Monroe and Ms. Taylor would be “plus-sized”…How wonderful it would be to transition the American mindset back to this sort of beauty.

What are your thoughts on how we persuade more magazines to follow Glamour’s lead?
