This year at Getting Gorgeous in NYC, I had the pleasure of meeting the nice folks at Belly Dance Maternity and their sister company Thread & Butter. They are so nice that they offered not one but two giveaways. Belly Dance Maternity was a week or so ago, and Thread & Butter’s giveaway is up today.
I love the clothes from both of these companies, Belly Dance Maternity carries brands like Olian, NOM, Ripe Maternity, Ingrid & Isabel, Jules & Jim, Maternal America, JBrand Maternity, Paige Maternity, DL1961 Maternity, Citizens of Humanity Maternity, Michael Stars Maternity (and more) and Thread & Butter has great clothes for the curvy fashionista. Okay, it always has been and always will be a reach to consider me a fashionista but I do appreciate nice things and, curvy? Yes, I can cop to that.
The in-house clothes from Thread & Butter are well-made, fashionable and gorgeous. I love the linen feel and look to the Adrian sweater but love even more that there are none of the laundering requirements (it is a super soft rayon blend). The clothes run from size 12 and up and are carefully and thoughtfully designed. I fell in love with the Adrian sweater on line and the lovely people at Thread & Butter were nice enough to send one to me. Got to say, their model rocks it better than I do but I seriously wore it almost every day last week. How? Well, to start, over a navy t shirt with khaki shorts, with a sweet pair of navy cotton pants that are my go-to, and a long white cotton skirt (from Oilily and it is easily older than some of you reading this). This sweater is a great wardrobe staple that I am so happy to have in my closet. Go get your own amazing wardrobe staples or find a trendy piece or two, they have those, too! My new coveted item is the sweet Dion plaid top – would love this with jeans!
So go ahead, leave a comment, tweet, like on Facebook – enjoy shopping!
