Why oh why did no one tell me about this range of post-partum and nursing lingerie 11 mths ago??? I have some cute cotton polka dot nursing bras but they still feel very BLEGH. I would have snapped all of these up in a heartbeat!
The queen of vintage style Dita Von Teese has added some va-va-voom for new moms with these additions to her already stunning lingerie range. The prices seem to hover in the $40 range which is pretty normal for "nice" nursing bras. Even better, the sizes go all the way up to "F"!
This is a great every day option that will help you feel a little more ooh-la-la and less blegh. This would actually be great to wear under vintage dresses. Those shapeless cotton ones just don't work!
This one makes me so happy. I never thought I would say that about a nursing bra. HAH. I mean WOAH MAMA!
And the award for sexiest post-partum shaper (did you EVER dream you'd hear those words?) goes to....
How do you like my sensationalist tabloid heading? Did it get your attention? Well, there's no scandal here. The PinUp girl in question is Pin UpGirl clothing (or PUG as we gals affectionately call them) and they have finally released a maternity line!
When I first became pregnant I had visions of myself being cute in some vintage maternity outfits. Cute little smock like tops with my red lipstick and curled hair. I spent hours combing Etsy and what i found is that
1: vintage maternity is very hard to come by
2: when you DO find it, it's prohibitively expensive.
So, I gave up that dream and spent my 9 months being cute in some $8 jersey maxi dresses from Ross.
Now, first off, I have to say I am not a fan of the term Preggers. Ugh. I would have named the line something like "Bun" after Bun in the Oven. I always liked that term. It sounds cute to me. But you know what, when I am talented enough to create my own clothing line I can name it whatever I want. So, Preggers it is.
The dresses aren't available quite yet, but if you're expecting or plan to be then get over to the site and wait-list yourself for this beauties. I haven't seen them in person yet but I'm guessing by the cuts that they will still be super flattering when you move from bump to baby!
I hope this is a sign of good things to come. Maybe more vintage-inspired lines will start designing for moms-to-be.
I can't believe I'm about to write this but in just over 2 months my tiny little girl will be ONE YEAR OLD! I'm freaking out. This year has gone so quickly. I've tried convincing her to stay this age forever but girlfriend is not having it. So, I guess the only thing left to do is to give in and just go with it.
We'll be throwing Phoebe a Fiesta! Brightly colored banners, piñatas (mostly for the adults and other kids, she's not quite big enough to beat up a pinata yet thank goodness) and amazing Mexican food. I did some browsing around online and WOW check this party out.
Now, let's see if I can DIY my way through it all in the next couple of months. Yikes. I can't be the only one with delusions of DIY party planning grandeur right? Ok friends, who's up for a Sangria and banner making party?
I'm a total Francophile so I realllllly want to see Violette. It's set in WWII Paris and follows the relationship of Violette Leduc with Simone de Beauvoir. It's in theatres on June 13th. Maybe I can get a "mommy away" day to go see it!
Have you joined Pippit yet? It's great new mobile way to read and post blogs! I love it so far and I've only just started playing with it. Here's a much better explanation. If you're on it
