Belly Dance Maternity

Thread & Butter = A Great Look (and a Giveaway)

Thread & ButterThread & Butter = A Great Look (and a Giveaway)

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!

Belly Dance Maternity (Giveaway)

How Gorgeous? Belly Dance Maternity…Pretty Gorgeous and Hip, too.

When I visited Getting Gorgeous (so much fun) earlier this year, I met the super nice folks at Belly Dance Maternity (and their sister company Thread & Butter) and we chatted (you know I can chat). I loved 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 (more in another post).

Why am I talking about maternity clothes? Maybe I am a little envious of all the new cute gear for moms to be and new moms out there. Back in the day it was rough, you know, when ugly sailor dresses with bows ruled the planet?  I exaggerate (but only slightly), and don’t get me started on all of the cool strollers and car seats. I won’t even begin to explain how rudimentary and non ergonomic things were. You wouldn’t believe me, anyway.

Because I am all about the share, even when it doesn’t benefit me (I know, right?),  I have an easy giveaway for you. You’re welcome.

Win a $50 gift certificate from Belly Dance Maternity. Not pregnant? Not planning on it? Get it for a sister or a friend and stay tuned for a $75 giveaway from Thread & Butter next week! Love to share good finds!

I did not receive compensation for this post but I did get a super soft cotton tunic (that you can wear before, during and after pregnancy) to review which one of my girls co-opted as a dress for herself. Maybe I’ll see it again someday. Probably not, though. Check them out on Pinterest, too.
