I tried on Most of Victoria Beckham’s Target Collection Released Today

Last October, we let you know that our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum and blog fave Victoria Beckham was set to launch her first ever children’s line as a part of a collaboration with big box retailer Target.

Well that time is now, actually today April 9 thru the end of the month April 30 while supplies last, you can get VB x Target clothing for toddlers, kids, and adults.

I headed over to my local Target after a friend texted me a reminder that the clothing was available and being snatched up in Target stores nationwide and I wanted to experience it for myself first hand and get some snaps of the pieces on the shelves and racks.  I was expecting something like the  the carnage that went down when Balmain released a line for H&M.

Beckham is following in the footsteps of other designer brands including Rodarte, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, Missoni, and Peter Pilotto, which have all dreamed up affordable wares for Target over the years. “For a while now, I have been thinking, how great it would be to work on clothes for a customer that either doesn’t want to pay or can’t pay designer prices,” Beckham said in a statement. “So when Target — a company based on accessibility and inclusiveness — proposed a collaboration which combined all of these things, it was an easy decision to make.”

Beckham’s collabo was different because hers will have larger sizes in the store where before they were only available online, and it was cause for criticism in the past, as with the insanely popular Lilly Pulitzer collaboration.

In any of event, when I got to my local store, I didn’t see any mad rush but rather a few families checking out the racks. I waited patiently for them to skedaddle along because I wanted to get a good photo of the Sign.

This store had the entire collection for all age groups in one section. I could easily ascertain that the cute grey ribbed jumper sets, the layette collection of bibs and onesies were for babies. The girl toddler selection is absolutely aforable and they looked like the kind of clothes you could imagine Harper Beckham wore when she was that age.

17634806_10154176504881353_7869726349684484443_n

But not so much with the other items in the collection, which comes in signature colors of black, white, grey, orange and brand mascot bunny and bees. The collections include: Circus Scallops, Pressed English flowers, English Lace, Clever Bunny and Pop Floral.

17862627_10154176504866353_4415152486908416089_n

Because the clothing for children mirror the adult version and there were a lot of sheath dresses, I didn’t know which was for kids and which for adults.

17884145_10154176504861353_8829160139062233612_n

I like what I saw, generally.  The quality of the construction  of the clothing, the material’s weight and the look were all top quality. They had a high end aesthetics to them as well. My fave is the see thru raincoat for kids.

17883677_10154176504781353_8390653573043611665_n

17861570_10154176504871353_605223129842211475_n

Also, I loved the paper dolls, coloring book and sticker books.

Because I wanted to see how the clothing would look on an average size and shaped woman who is not a model, I tried on a few pieces.

17799307_10154176504971353_4317323591739302730_n

Again, I couldn’t tell from just looking at the clothing which would fit. They all looked to run large, and I saw a few people on social media complaining about that but when you actually put on the pieces, you realize they aren’t large at all. Just in case, I picked up an item in every size and would you believe, she fit in them all!?! Look:

Admittedly, I squeezed in this orange. It is a size xs and I could certainly go up two sizes. *snicker*. My fave piece is the  Black Calla Lily Button Down Top. It fit quite comforably and I really dig the Nero type collar.

17861947_10154176503461353_2259931193687703472_n

These pieces are among the other 200 items in the ready to wear line that includes rompers, playful tops and dresses. About designing for kids, Beckham said it was something she has wanted to do for years.

“Designing for children is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I was incredibly excited to be able to incorporate childrenswear into this collection,” she said on a blog post on the Target site. “When working on it, I really felt I could tell a story and have fun with it—and I think the clothes reflect just how much fun I had designing them! Being a mother has helped me understand what’s important when it comes to the category. I have had years of learning that function is often just as important as form, and that children need to be able to feel comfortable and free in what they wear. For me it was really all about finding a balance between the fun elements and the real-life functionality of a garment.”

Victoria Beckham for Target ranges in price from $6-$70, with most items under $40, and will be offered in sizes XS-3X for women and NB-XL for girls, toddler and baby. The collection will be available April 9 through April 30, 2017, or while supplies last, at all Target stores and Target.com with  select pieces available for global shoppers via VictoriaBeckham.com. There are a few online exclusives as well.

Before the launch, Beckham shared a commercial for the line which she says is reminiscent of her days as a member of the popular 1990s British girl group, the Spice Girls. In the background to the commercial plays the group’s most famous song, “Spice Up Your Life.”

She also said the inspiration was her daughter.

“I’m reading my life with Harper and what we do as mother and daughter not just with regards to the clothes, but I created some little coloring books and sticker books, and, you know, it’s things that myself and Harper do in England together,” Beckham explained in a promo video. “This is celebrating my relationship with my daughter, and I think it’s great that other women can do exactly the same…. The inspiration behind this campaign was a world of possibilities–make-believe, imagination, and the unexpected.”

Nice!

Victoria Beckham Wins the Contest of Celeb Who Wears Her Own Line Most/Best

victoria beckham

If there was an award for the celebrity designer who does the best job at wearing and promoting her own line it would go to Victoria Beckham. There isn’t a black and/or white combo the former Spice Girl doesn’t like and whenever she’s spotted out and about, whether by the paparazzi, on a red carpet or doing a press appearance, she is wearing clothing from her high end label.

There is a reason she was named one (and the first) of Bellyitch’s Fashion Mom Icon.

Mrs. David Beckham‘s stuff is classic, chic and basic. They have clean lines and because there is so much black, the clothing can complement well with other pieces and flatter women of different shapes and sizes.

vb jumpusuit

The price points, though steep for most people’s common budgets, still vary.  For example, one can nab this cotton blend jumpsuit from her line which is down and half off from $1,600 to $650.   It has a slim but boxy fit and could be rocked with patent pumps or sandals.

vb dress

On the other end of the spectrum is this $3,995 strapless Corset flare wool dress which comes with a diamond broach.  It looks fabulous and the A-line is wonderful for accenting a nice neckline while de-emphasizing the hips.

vb sripes

In the middle of that price range is this $1,500 striped knitted top from Beckham. Cute but wow!  I think right now, is second with her new line named after her grandparents,

Chrissy Teigen’s Maternity Style is Victorian Feminine and Chic Casual

Also, like this crimson feminine Costarellos dress with beautiful jewelry by Leticia Linton and EFFY, ring by Le Vian and Judith Leiber purse she wore to another event recently.

It’s all ornate but light at the same time. Love it!

She keeps it casual too!

Harper Beckham beats Blue Ivy and North West as most coveted celebrity child model

So Blue Ivy and North West aren’t the most sought after child models after all?
The UK Telegraph claims that Harper Beckham‘s parents Victoria and David Beckham have been offered up to $30 million worth of modeling contracts since she was spotted sitting in the front row at her mom’s New York Fashion Week show last week.
“Companies see her as the greatest role model for a wholesome, modern family image,”an insider reportedly stated. “She’s surrounded by a happily-married working couple and go-getting brothers. You cannot buy that kind of appeal.”
The same insider said that mom and dad have rejected all offers. 
Must be nice to be able to afford to turn down all that dough.

Parents Regret Baby Name Choice After A Celebrity Picks It Too

People who give their babies names that are later picked by celebs are smacking their foreheads!

A recent study of 2,000 parents found one in five began to dislike their choice after the name rose in popularity, while almost one in ten were annoyed after a celebrity chose the same name for their toddler.

SJ Strum, baby names expert from ChannelMum.com, who carried out the study, said: “Picking your baby name is one of the most important parts of becoming a parent – and it’s also something which everyone from friends and family to total strangers has an opinion on.

“Celebrity trends mean there are an ever-growing list of baby names to choose from, but this also means more opportunities to choose a name which you, or your child, then learn to loathe.”

According to the British website, here are some of the names celebrities have given their children which regular parents now despise:

1. Bear (Alicia Silverstone)

2. Harper (David and Victoria Beckham)

3. Shiloh (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie)

4. Mason (Kourtney Kardashian)

5. Penelope (Kourtney Kardashian)

6. Eric (Simon Cowell)

7. Luna (John Legend and Chrissy Teigen)

8. Willow (Pink)

9. Miles (John Legend and Chrissy Teigen)

10. Louis (Prince William and Kate Middleton)

11. George (Prince William and Kate Middleton)

12. Charlotte (Prince William and Kate Middleton)

Top Entertainment Stories of 2018

Image Credit:  WPA Pool

It seems like 2018 was the year of big moments in entertainment.  From box office hits to celebrity engagements, this was definitely a year of highs -and some lows- for the entertainment industry.  Here are a few of the biggest headlines we saw in 2018.

The Royal Wedding

One of the biggest stories of 2018 was the royal union of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.  The British prince and the American actress tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel on May 19th, with an estimated 1.9 billion viewers tuning in around the world.  You would think with that many people watching the couple would be nervous, but Megan and Harry looked happy, poised and gracious when entering and exiting the ceremony.  

The star-studded guest list was another reason so many people tuned in to watch the nuptials, with notable figures such as David and Victoria Beckham, James Corden, and even Sir Elton John turning out to the event.  A few months after the wedding came an exciting announcement- the couple is expecting their first child!

Kylie’s Surprise Baby Announcement

One of the most surprising stories in celebrity news this year was the birth of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s first daughter, Stormi.  Up until Stormi’s birth on February 1st, Kyle never confirmed that she was pregnant in the first place!

The announcement came in the form of a video posted to Kylie’s social media accounts on Superbowl Sunday, effectively overshadowing the big game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots.  Upon hearing the news, fans of both the reality TV star and the rapper took to social media to congratulate the happy couple, and the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan expressed their joy as well.

California Wildfires

Not every piece of news this year was positive.  In late 2018, wildfires began wreaking havoc up and down the state of California.  In addition to civilians, many celebrities were affected by the devastating fires, including Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler and Neil Young, who lost their homes in the Southern California fire.  

Many celebrities came out to show their support during these hard times, and Gerard Butler hosted a star-studded fundraising event with a guest list including Sean Penn, Robin Thicke, Cindy Crawford, and many more famous faces.  Although the California wildfires devastatingly destroyed thousands of homes, many communities have already started to rebuild, thanks to generous donations from civilians and celebrities alike.

A Bachelor Engagement

If you were one of the 7.8 million people who tuned into the Bachelor season 22 finale on March 5th, you know that Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Becca K…. and then dumped her on live TV to be with Lauren B.  While the plot twist certainly made for good TV, viewers were outraged at the heartlessness of Arie’s on-screen breakup.

However, being publicly dumped ended up working in Becca’s favor, as she was announced the new Bachelorette on After the Final Rose.  Since then, Arie and Lauren have announced that they plan to get married in January 2019 and are actually expecting a baby in June! As for Becca, the Minnesota native is happily engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, whom she met on The Bachelorette!

With how wild 2018 has been, 2019 is expected to be just as big for the entertainment industry.

New movies, music from top 40 singers, and even some pregnancy announcements are sure to take the media by storm in 2019, so be sure to look out for what’s to come!

Which Valentine’s Day Look Are You? CHOOSE!

Valentine’s Day is coming up. Thinking of what to wear? You only have a few days to get it together. Go with what fits your mood if you’re going on a date with your honey or out for a post Galentine’s Day frollick with your girlfriends.

You can get sexy and show off some leg like Style Pantry blogger Folake Kuye Huntoon or Kylie Jenner or be more covered and rock lace or a massive frock Victorian lady like current mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen wore recently.

Valentine’s Day is the day before the much-anticipated Black Panther movie premieres and African wear is in order. Pair two different prints and center them all with a big and bold black belt. You can do the Sex Kitten or Vixen look in a body con dress like the one Taraji P. Henson sizzled in on the red carpet or keep it HBIC (Head Bitch In Charge) with an insanely fierce Victoria Beckham dress. 

For moms-to-be, a fave of ours, Isabella Oliver, sells a pretty cute Red one-shoulder ruched dress that Bethenny Frankel, Sienna Miller, Ali Larter and Brit stars Danielle Lloyd and Myleene Klass others have worn and loved the one shoulder ruched dress in crimson or the Burlington  Maternity dress. 

We hand selected some red dresses and looks to draw some inspiration from using tools from our friends at Shopstyle Collective. Good luck and do enjoy your day!

They’re Like A Lot of Us: 40 Celeb Women Who Had Unwed Pregnancies

Bellyitch Rewind

halle-natalie

About 4 years ago, we blogged about how tons of celebrities welcome babies with men they ar not married to and how they, unlike most women, are not shamed for it.

Several, like Heidi Klum and Kelis break up before the baby is even born. The mention is not to bash different lifestyle choices or situations but just to point out the prevalence of premarital pregnancy in Hollywood.

Of the several dozens women Bellyitch has “bumpwatched” since its inception in 2007, the lion’s share or bulk of them were technically single (though possibly attached or engaged) while pregnant.

 Also, to a certain extent, these blessings, each of them, are celebrated and cheered. Meanwhile, average non-celebrity women who have children out-of-wedlock are traditionally trashed, bashed and shamed, by society.
 It’s a double standard, no doubt. But alas, these are changing times and traditional notions and norms are altering too.
Here is a list of 40 celebrity women ( from our old post in 2013, there have been many more since then) who got pregnant before going down the aisle, including some that didn’t even want a ring, and some that are still happily single (in no particular order):
1. Kim Kardashian

2. Salma Hayek

3. KimZolciak

4. Amber Rose

5. Victoria Beckham

6. Kelis

7. Emma Bunton

8. Halle Berry

9. Natalie Portman

10. Jennifer Hudson

11. Snooki

12. Lauryn Hill

13. Kristin Cavallari

14. Melanie Brown

15. Heidi Klum

16. Fantasia Barrino

17. Isla Fisher

18. Nia Long

19. Drew Barrymore

20. Yandy Smith

21. Kate Hudson

22. Jill Scott

23. Britney Spears

24. Nicole Richie

25. Kate Winslet

26. Alicia Keys

27. Jessica Simpson

28. Keyshia Cole
