Going to the mall with a baby who needs to be nursed is no problem nowadays. Most shopping malls already have a breastfeeding section, and there is heightened awareness with mothers who prefer to breastfeed their babies. When the going gets tough – or when the baby is calling, rather – you have to be prepared to feed your baby without needing to change clothes and pulling up shirts.
The seamless camisole is elastic and made for nursing, so you can wear it when you’re pregnant or when you have already given birth to a breastfeeding baby. An alternative is Maternity Plus’ feeding tank, which serves the same purpose. These are both ensured to make feeding easy and comfortable to both mommy and baby, without sacrificing style.
Cover up and add an oomph to your getup with Bowerbird Vintage’s I Love Lucy Cape, which is dusty rose in color and drapes softly from the shoulders. It is made of a floaty semi-sheer fabric with design reminiscent of the 70′s when it’s all thin waists and babydoll look. Pair this with RIPE’s Mischa maternity jeans, which is straightcut and has an elastic band at the waist to accommodate a baby bump.
If you are breastfeeding your baby, it is important to keep track of feeding times, and Mothers Minder’s reminder bracelets are chic and fashionable ways of reminding you of baby’s hungry hours.
Keep yourself looking fresh and pretty with Urban Rituelle’s Raspberry lip balm to prevent chapped, dry, and pale puckers. This lip balm has natural beeswax, sweet almond oil, olive oil, and shea butter, plus vitamin E and sunscreen, to keep lips soft and protected.
Put the lip balm and your other beauty products (and baby’s essential things, of course) in the chic Storksak Elizabeth nappy bag. Unlike other baby bags, you can even use this bag even if you don’t have a baby, because of its beautiful leather body and classy design. Made out of textured cow leather, this bag has a top-zip closure and features a removable thermo-insulated bottle holder and a changing mat.
If you know someone who’s a hip mommy, you can give her a gift from these selection of items. It is proof that motherhood – and nursing a baby – is not the end of chicness and coolness.
The return of the Get Ups, and now it’s for the mighty preggies! Holla if you’re a gorgeous pregnant woman rocking that beautiful baby bump.
The white Lounge Around Top can be worn as a mini dress or with jeans or leggings. It is made of light weight cotton to achieve that flouncy and soft look to its layers without the wearer looking bagged down. It has ribbon trimmings and would be great for any season with the right complementary accessories and clothes; the Seamless Camisole can be worn under for colder days.
A pair of leggings is a great bottom to this flouncy top, such as the RIPE Cotton Blend Ankle Maternity Leggings, its tightness complementing the top’s layered structure. Straight leg jeans such as RIPE’s Mischa Straight Leg Maternity Jeans and Ninth Moon’s Flat Front Jeans are also great alternatives for moms who are more hip and doesn’t want a bottom that clings to the legs. Both jeans have support bands for the belly.
After Queensland had been hit by raging flood waters, some Australian baby stores have taken the initiative to help in the relief operations by donating a significant amount of their sales to the victims of the Queensland flood. You too can help by purchasing items from them to make their part in the donation possible. Thoughts of good will are nice, but a tangible donation is great. You will never regret helping anyone.
ENTROPY will donate $5 from every one of their sale this week til the 20th and also bring it to Queensland’s Premier. Plus they are having a 20% off storewide sale for that same reason.
Black is not actually a color.
In terms of light and particles and Physics, black is the result of the absorption of all colors in the spectrum (which we otherwise call ROYGBIV, an example of which is the rainbow), although in Art, mixing all colors in the rainbow would result to a muddy brown. Physics and Art clash each other often like that, especially when it comes to colors, another example would be: in Art, we all know the primary colors are Red-Yellow-Blue; but in Physics it’s Red-Green-Blue, thus the RGB in design software modes such as Photoshop.
Whatever the origin and definition of black is, in Design it symbolizes chicness, sophistication, and elegance. And because it’s Halloween month, we will have a Black Theme Week to kick off the month of November! To start the week off, here are sleek black (and white) must-have items for a classy and modern Halloween party for adults.
