Jessica Seinfeld: “I Only Know How to Work.”

Friday, September 20th, 2013

When caring for Baby, you barely have time to think about yourself let alone what you’re wearing, including the essentials like nursing bras. But for mamas experiencing financial and family hardships, stylish duds could just be the perfect spark of hope.

That’s a message the uber-cool clothing line Thyme Maternity understands all too well. To celebrate the opening of its first in-store shop in New York this week, the brand is teaming with Baby Buggy, a non-profit providing struggling moms across the country with essential gear and services.

We caught up with Baby Buggy’s founder Jessica Seinfeld, mom of three and wife of Jerry Seinfeld, to learn more about this exclusive partnership:

The event is themed “Look Great, Feel Great.” Why is that such an important message for you?

The moms we help are struggling with the very basics, so they don’t feel great about themselves every morning they wake up. They face things most of us could never comprehend. For us to give back through Thyme Maternity is almost life changing because it gives them a little bit of light in a dark time.

How have the families you’ve helped responded to the partnership?

One of our moms is so happy she actually has something nice to wear to work for the first time. Every dollar she stashed away went to her family and not herself. To give a mother something special, especially during this time, is a wonderful thing.

What’s your favorite thing about Thyme’s new fall line?

They really took fall to a bright, not somber place. What I like about this line is that it’s flattering for all different shapes, and the colors are really pretty.

What helps you balance work with family?

I only know how to work. I’m not good with staying home, especially now that my kids are in school all day. I try to kill it every day and put in as much as I can to spend more time helping people.

 

The “Look Great, Feel Great” event runs throughout this weekend. For every item purchased through September 22 from the line’s maternity shops in Babies “R” Us as well as online at BabiesRUs.com/Thyme, Thyme will donate a piece from its collection to Baby Buggy. To top it off, all items will be Buy One, Get One 50 percent off, a win for moms everywhere. For instance, you can pick up TWO of Thyme’s great nursing bras starting as low as $30! Happy shopping…

7 Maternity Style Tips from Liz Lange

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Putting together a fashionable wardrobe during pregnancy can be a tricky business, and things only get more complicated as hot summer weather approaches. Luckily, designer Liz Lange is here to help!

Liz started her clothing line during her own pregnancy, when she discovered it was impossible to find flattering and sophisticated maternity clothes. “My idea was to design pieces with more fitted silhouettes that looked chic and complemented the body,” she says. “I built my brand around this idea of celebrating the bump—not hiding it.”

Now, she gives us her top fashion tips for moms-to-be:

1. Embrace the bump. “Trust me, it’s more flattering to flaunt it than hide it,” she says. “I incorporate lots of stretchy fabrics and side-ruching into my Target line to flatter the figure and really highlight the bump.”

2. Stay true to your own style. “Maternity wear has evolved so much over the years. There’s no need to wear oversized, shapeless dresses or your husband’s sweats, because women can now find cute, stylish maternity apparel that suits their unique fashion sense,” she says. Many of Liz’s designs incorporate cut-outs, lace paneling and color-blocking to let women express themselves.

3. Be daring. “I love bright colors and bold prints on a pregnant woman—in the right proportions, they’re surprisingly flattering,” Liz says. But if you’re going for a more subtle look, she recommends sticking with neutrals and incorporating trendy, punchy accessories into your outfit instead.

4. Don’t be afraid to show some skin. “Highlight the thinnest parts of your figure—your arms and toned legs—with tanks, mini-dresses and shorts. If you’re uncomfortable baring your belly at the beach, try a tankini. They provide the security of extra coverage while still drawing attention to the right places. I especially love versions with convertible straps so you can go halter or strapless.” Her favorite summertime item is a simple dress, perfect for the office or a day by the pool.

5. Wear sensible (but cute!) shoes. “No teetering around on high heels! Opt for wedges or a low kitten heel if you need a little lift.”

6. Invest in a few classic essentials. Liz recommends a great-fitting pair of maternity jeans (ideally in a darker wash so they’re easier to dress up) and a versatile black dress. “These two pieces will take you everywhere you need to go, day or night,” she says.

7. Above all, enjoy yourself. “This is an exciting, celebratory time so have fun with maternity fashion!”

Pregnant Celebrities Showcase Hollywood’s Maternity Trends

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop

It’s a Hollywood baby boom. And what better way to celebrate high-profile baby bumps than with funky fashions?!

From Kate Middleton’s pretty trends, to Kim Kardashian’s bold statements, to Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s feminine chic fashions, let’s take a look at the top maternity styles from 10 pregnant celebrities.

Kate Middleton
We’ve only caught a few glimpses of Kate Middleton‘s maternity style — but so far, we approve! After leaving the hospital in December, Kate looked chic in a navy coat accessorized with a light blue scarf while holding a bouquet of yellow roses. And last month, we caught our first glimpse of her barely there belly in a gray Max Mara wrap dress. All eyes will be on the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, in the following months as her baby bump continues to grow.

Kristen Bell
From Hollywood glam, to skinny jeans and scarves, to feminine floral dresses, Kristen Bell has dressed to impress during her first pregnancy. At the Golden Globe Awards in January, the House of Lies star, 32, radiated the red carpet in an embellished floor-length Jenny Packham gown.

Holly Madison
Mom-to-be Holly Madison has been hitting the Las Vegas circuit over the past few months. Embracing her growing belly in form fitting dresses, the Playboy model, 33, has been rocking her baby bump on the red carpet.

Malin Akerman
From rocker chic, to maxi dresses and scarves, to red carpet radiant, Malin Akerman has been leading the way in top maternity trends this season. In November, the Rock of Ages actress, 32, wowed in an all-black ensemble while showcasing her barely there baby bump. As her belly has grown, she has embraced the curves with tight dresses and tops. Such a stunning mom-to-be!

Fergie
Black Eyed Peas frontwoman Fergie announced her pregnancy news last month. And since then, all eyes have been on the singer-fashion designer, 37, as she dresses her lovely baby bump. From all black chic, to layers and scarves, to flowing and feminine, the Grammy Award-winning singer is mixing up the maternity trends during her first pregnancy.

Kim Kardashian
She’s received quite a lot of buzz about her maternity style so far! But what else would you expect from the 32-year-old reality star? She wowed in white on the red carpet, she raised eyebrows in high-waisted peplum pants, and she even wore a see-through blouse. We can’t wait to see how the mom-to-be continues to dress her growing baby bump.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been dressing her growing belly in maxi dresses, skinny jeans and layers, and glam red carpet gowns. Always adding the perfect denim jacket or accessory, the Step Up star, 32, has been dressing to impress during her first pregnancy.

Jessica Simpson
During her second pregnancy, Jessica Simpson has looked radiant in black fitted outfits, partnered with chic jackets. From a pretty pink blazer, to modern military jackets, the singer-turned-fashion-designer, 32, is keeping things trendy as her baby bump grows.

Busy Philipps
Cougar Town star Busy Philipps has been looking chic in patterned maternity maxi dresses with flats and fitted red carpet gowns during her second pregnancy. Admitting this pregnancy has been “harder” than her first, the actress, 33, is opting for trendy yet comfortable maternity fashions this time around.

Amber Rose
Although she welcomed her first child “The Dash” last month, we’d be remiss not to mention the maternity fashions of Amber Rose. The model mom, 29, embraced her growing baby bump throughout her first pregnancy with form fitting dresses, polka dots, and caps.

Who has the best – and worst – maternity style?
