    Dress to Impress

    Dress to Impress

    Thanksgiving has come and gone, and like it or not we are in the thick of the Holidays! 

    Every year during the Holidays we get social. It is the time of year that we need something fantastic to wear to all of the events, and there are always plenty of events. Finding the perfect dress is never easy, and when adding a bump it becomes even more tedious, but it does not have to be.  That's what we are here for!

    Need something for the Holiday parties? Want something comfortable and cute? Well, the Tees by Tina Lattice dress is for you. It could not be easier than this one. Add a statement necklace, a cute pair of pumps, and a fabulous wrap or jacket, and you can spread Holiday Cheer everywhere you go!


    Another Fave by Tina is the Samantha Scoop dress. With three fourth sleeves and a reversible neckline, it's a dress that can be as perfect for a family dinner as it is for an office party!

    It is a dress that makes everyone happy. It is stylish enough for Hollywood, professional enough for a CEO,  and perfect for all that is in between. When you want something that is as fab as it is soft, you want the Penelope by Alex and Harry.  It comes in three colors, and the new Merlot is all things Merry and Bright. If you are a nursing mommy, this Holiday Season it is also perfect for that too!

    If you are searching for the classic, perfect Little Black Dress with a little on-trend va-va-voom then the Celine dress is just what you've been looking for. You're sure to be the star of the holiday soiree!

    Last but not least is the Imogen Dress. It is the perfect time for lace, but then again, when isn't? It is a beautiful dress for any occasion, and with a few sparkly accessories, you will be ready to ring in the New Year.

    Happy Holidays!

    No Really, It's One Size

    No Really, It's One Size

    One size, we know, not something you think would work with maternity, but it's possible, comfortable and will take even multiples to term, and take mom beyond.It can be a task to convince new mama's that yes, it will fit.If you've been into the stores before, you might have happened across the wonderful brands Tee's by Tina and Alex&Harry, and when it comes down to sizing, these lines have nailed it."One Size, during pregnancy?!" you think, but yes, yes, yes.  People look at us skeptically, it's ok, we're used to it. Then they try it on, we see their eyes go wide, smiles take over and they ask what other colors it comes in!

    Things like the Hampton Tee will always get confused looks. We've had more than a few people ask, "Is this a children's shirt?" just because it does look a bit small on the hanger. That's when we, your trusty friends at Mom's The Word, will say, "But it's so stretchy and soft and great for pregnancy and well after!" It's a great top that's not even maternity specific.

    Linda was 7 months in this picture.

    Then there's a top on the opposite side of the one size spectrum like the Don't Sweat It. Gorgeously loose and baggy with straps thick enough to hide your bra. Do we have to do as much convincing of this one? Maybe not, but on the hanger it's not half as delightful as it is with a person in it. When our lovely new moms see it for the first time, it can look a bit shapeless, but then comes the sighs of relief from the dressing room when they finally try it on.

    And just for fun, we love to pair the fitted dresses from Tees by Tina, either the Samantha or the Microstripe, with the Kate Cascade from Alex&Harry. One sizes can be your best friend during pregnancy if you can find the right pieces and we have found them for you! Hard part over! Well, not as hard as making a human being, but you get the idea.

    You may not be one size for the next 40 weeks, but these one size pieces will take you there and back!

    How to Make the Most of Your Maternity Wardrobe: Part I

    How to Make the Most of Your Maternity Wardrobe: Part I
    The more that you can do with each piece that you add to your maternity wardrobe the better. The best way to stretch a shrinking wardrobe is to start with, and stock up on, what we refer to as "blank slate" pieces. Blank Slate Pieces will take you anywhere and everywhere because you may be pregnant, but you still get to go out and about, look fab and have fun.

    Ready. Set. Season Transition!

    Ready. Set. Season Transition!

    There is virtually no way to avoid a two season pregnancy.  And then there's the "beyond", the "4th trimester".  Yup.  Two seasons. Two wardrobes.

    To get the most bang for your buck, at this time of year we work with clients to start thinking about transitional pieces, styles to take you from today and through to Spring! The temp outside says summer, but what's a mama to do if baby is not due until April?

    Think like we think every day in Northern California!  Think layers!  Here are a few of our faves. Got your own season dilemma? Email us, we can get your through to delivery date:)

    One of our current customer favorites is the Rebecca by Daniel Rainn.  This dress is perfect with the bump and just as fabulous after the bump's arrival. It does Summer beautifully keeping you cool, and comfortable then add leggings and boots, and the same dress is all about Fall. Take the kiddos-back-school or the perfect Date Night dress when worn with cute heels and some bling. 

                          +   =:)

    The Microstripe maxi is a year round fave, too! Toss on a cardi or poncho OR emulate Zoe Saldana and add a pop of color with a bag or cute shoe. This dress is divine no matter the weather and the olive stripe makes it a Thanksgiving go-to when paired with a cozy cardi, and a cute slouchy bootie.

    It's time to begin to think about transitional clothing. The transition from Summer to Fall, from the Bump to Beyond, from daywear to dinner time. Life has lots of transitions, and you deserve styles that do them all beautifully!
