A look into our shop…

I wanted to post a few pictures of our shop. We have been adding a lot of inventory and sprucing things up a bit.

I hope you like it!

Mannequin featuring Babylady Inc., Wovenplay, and Les Pompons De Violettes.

I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

I used a mix of new and antique furniture.

I am a bit obsessed with keeping everything neat and tidy.

Maternity Inspiration

After my last buying trip I found myself really inspired by what I saw. I began thinking about maternity wear because a lot of the pieces that were presented could accommodate a baby bump. Multi use garments were in almost every collection. Skirts that could be turned into dresses and straps that could be removed were a common theme. There are so many beautiful dresses and tops out there that are not actually made for pregnancy but could translate to maternity. Personally, when I was growing my girls I really tried to think outside the box and come up with looks that were still chic but comfortable. I never went out and bought “maternity” clothing. What did you do?

I have been giving a lot of thought to the idea of doing a maternity pop up shop in the store. What do you think?

Below are some of my favorite looks from pregnant mama’s.

Miroslava Duma, ex editor of Russian Harpers Bazaar. Her pregnancy was by far, one of the most beauutiful and elegant pregnancies EVER. Isn’t she adorable??

Vera Farmiga

Jennifer Connelly

Jessica Alba
