Maternity Styling Tips for a Chic Pregnancy

Online family clothing retailer Zulily.com is having its Maternity Week and has released its second annual best dressed bump list which includes some of the celebrity moms we cover here in Bellyitchblog: Carrie Underwood, Tamera Mowry Housley and Zooey Deschanel, among others. 
To commemorate the week of specialized looks for less showcased on the site this week and award season, its Maternity Fashion Expert Robin Otto offers these great styling tips and tricks for expecting mothers everywhere:
#1- Invest in a great pair of maternity jeans. 
Purchase a pair of over-the-belly denim when you are about 13-16 weeks along.  It may seem unnecessary in the early stages, but you will be grateful that you have them once you hit the 6-month mark. 
*Style Tip: you can fold over the belly to create an underbelly jean if you do not fill out the belly band or if you need added support at the hip area.  You can also do the same thing after pregnancy, stretching (pun intended!) the life of your jeans.
#2- Look for side-ruched tops
“Side ruched” tops are great because they hide the early pregnancy belly when you haven’t quite popped yet, as well as camouflage any problem areas after baby has arrived. 
*Style Tip: Look out for tees like that are 100% cotton.  They do not hold their shape as well as tops with a spandex blend.

#3 Buy true maternity wear instead of just going up a size. 
Maternity clothes are fit to a pregnant model and designed with a drape to accommodate a growing baby bump. Invest in key pieces to get you comfortably through pregnancy. 
*Style Tip: If you want to utilize some of your pre-pregnancy wear, put on your pre-pregnancy blazers and cardigans open and pair them with a fitted maternity tee and maternity pants.

Following these suggestions should get you well on your way to a stylish pregnancy.

Celebrity Social Media Pregnancy Announcements Guide…More

I saw that Yahoo! Celebrity did a post sharing some of the best celebrity pregnancy announcements.
I thought it was cute how the site pointed out the 5 different ways that celebrity women have used social media to announce their respective pregnancies as opposed to going the traditional route of having a publicist send it to US Weekly or PEOPLE magazine:
1. bun in oven; 2. Use a younger sibling to make the announcement; 3. letting the bump do the talking; 4. Just get to the point and make it direct; and 5. through a beautiful silhouette on a personal website.
Here are some other celeb announcements styles that Yahoo! Missed! 


The Ultrasound shared in social media is also a very common but still cute announcement that several celebrities have used like Danielle and Nick Jonas, for example.
The Spaghetti Prego announcement like NFL’s Torrey Smith and his wife.  At this point, it’s becoming a bit cliche though given how many people in Pinterest have used that announcement format.


The younger kid making an announcement using a chalkboard like Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh  of the NBA and his wife, Adrienne, who used their son Jackson  to announce his sister.


Showing the pregnancy test stick is also a trend like how Tamera Mowry-Housley and Busy Phillips did.
But one of the still most popular way is the cupping the belly red carpet reveal like with Beyonce, Amber Rose, Marion Cotillard, and Gwen Stefani.

Eco-Friday: How to have a Baby Clothes Swap Party

 swaps! 
Personally, I have attended a couple of clothing/closet swap parties for adults where girlfriends get together, take turns and shop each others’ clothes that we won’t wear any longer. It is a trendy and economical way to get “new” clothes without breaking the bank and swapping out your wardrobe.
In these tough economic times, purchasing new clothes for an impending arrival, especially for families on a budget and with more than one child, is not always an option. Organizing a baby swap is a very wonderful way for everyone to save a buck and get some new stuff. Here are some tips I gleaned from online research:

Step 1 – Select a date. 

  •  Based on your schedule and your family’s schedule, select a date that best works for you.  
  •  From there, decide if your swap will host both kids and adults – this will also help in determining the time of your swap (daytime vs. nighttime), the food, the activities, etc.  

Step 2 – Declutter. 

  • Get the word out about your Clothing Swap house party sooner rather than later. This gives everyone ample time to clean out their closets and find items to swap.  
  •  Make sure to invite your  guests three-to-four weeks in advance. With your invites, give your guests the following instructions:

What to bring:
Kids clothes and accessories in all sizes that are wearable and freshly laundered.
Most swap-worthy items fall into 3 categories

  • NEW Clothes (with tags)
  • NEARLY NEW Clothes (worn only once or twice)
  • GENTLY USED Clothes (worn, but still in very good condition)

What NOT to bring:
Out of respect for fellow swappers and your community, please do not bring ripped, dirty, stained items, those with broken zippers, or otherwise unwearable.              
            
Note that all unclaimed items can be donated to a host selected non-profit or cause.
Step 3 – Prepare for your party. 
You can create a successful swap by designating different areas of your home for different articles of clothing or different children’s clothes sizes. For example, your living room might be the location for all clothes for newborns, while the bedroom might have clothes for toddlers. 
Set up different tables clearly labeled with sizes or type of clothing to help your guests “organize” when they arrive. 
Mirrors, racks and hangers are helpful but not required

Hope this is helpful. 
And sidebar: it was refreshing to see Tia Mowry Hardrict  and Tamera Mowry-Housley balk at a pricey bottle of olive oil in that episode earlier and second guess a decision to pay $80 for some flimsy resort wear an episode before when they went to the Bahamas. So many times on reality TV shows, we have women, who may not necessarily be independently wealthy, make so many outlandish shopping purchases flagrantly and without any regard to the final price. You’ll see the camera zoom in to a total that is 500th times what an average family would pay or even earn in a month. Many times, they can’t really even afford the crap but do it for the cameras and show. It’s so great that Tia and Tamera don’t buy into that and reveal that even though they may earn more as actresses, they watch their pennies and wallets and refuse to succumb to extravagant spending. It’s a great lesson and good to see. The truly wealthy people on this earth do not spend extraneously as “new money” people do and that is the reason they remain wealthy. Okay. Off my soap box now! 🙂

2015 Golden Globes Red Carpet Events “Bumps and Fashion”

The 2015 Golden Globe Awards and the pre and post show events gave us plenty of red carpet bumps to gawk at…
Here are the ladies we’re following and what they word:
Keira Knightly, who was nominated for her role in The Imitation Game, wore a light and feminine custom Chanel buttefly print slip dress with tiered ruffles at the bottom from the line’s pre 2015 collection, belted above the bump with a frilly lace bib along the neckline. She accented the look with a butterfly bracelet and black clutch. Knightly and her husband, James Righton, a keyboardist for the group The Kaxons, are expecting their first child this year. 
Tamera Mowry-Housley went va va voom with a high slit one shoulder Michael Kors dress, Kimberly McDonald jewels, Kelly Wearstler clutch and silver strappy Badgley Mischka heels while attending the NBCUniversal 2015 Golden Globe Awards Party sponsored by Chrysler at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley are expecting their second child, a daughter. The couple are parents to 2-year old son, Aden. 
Molly Sims hit up the InStyle Post-Golden Globe party in a sunny yellow Lisa Perry Schumacher 1889 gown. Love the ethnic-inspired embroidered trim to this dress. Sims and her husband Scott Stuber are expecting their second child. They are parents to 2-year old son, Brooks. 

TV host Terri Seymour also played up her sensual side a bit in a black Yosep Sinudarsono  Yotuz Collection dress, accented with jewels from XIV Karats Beverly Hills, while attending the Weinstien Company and Netflix Golden Globes After Party. Seymour, well known for being a longtime girlfriend of Simon Cowell, is in her last trimester of her pregnancy. She and beau Clark Mallon are expecting their first child together.

All the ladies looked absolutely beautiful in our book!
