Ruth Erotokritou Striped Poncho – Buyer’s Pick

It’s holiday time and Spring is just around the corner, so this month’s maternity buyer’s pick just had to be one of our colourful and carefree new items for spring.

Ruth Erotokritou Poncho

“Our new, exclusive maternity collection from British designer Ruth Erotokritou is flying out of the stores, and for good reason,” says Blossom’s maternity buyer, Luella. “The comfortable style and deliciously soft fabrics in the collection are especially appropriate for maternity and can be worn at any stage of pregnancy and beyond. I particularly love her green and orange striped poncho, which is a perfect transition style going into Spring. It adds just the right injection of colour into your maternity wardrobe and paired with your 7 For All Mankind Skinny Illusion Jeans in Bluebay and a pair of heels it’s a smashing look for a night out.”

The Ruth Erotokritou poncho is available in all Blossom Mother and Child locations – Harrod’s, The Dubai Mall, and Online.

Maternity Party Dresses for Pregnancy and Beyond – Get the Look

Awards season has been in full swing for a few weeks now and it’s all leading up to the Academy Awards, which some would claim to be THE event of the season.  We can’t all be on the red carpet or attending the Governor’s Ball, but no doubt you’ll have some equally special events on your calendar during your pregnancy or post-partum.  Fortunately we have a great selection of maternity party dresses that are suitable not only during pregnancy but well beyond so you can make a sound investment.

LOVELY LACE

Lace is definitely in vogue this season, as evidenced by the always stylish Cate Blanchett’s look at the 2014 Golden Globes.

If you’d like something similar, (but perhaps just a little less formal), then look no further than our Attessa Black Lace Maternity Dress, which is a true maternity dress,

GO BOLD OR GO HOME

Amy Adams has obviously been looking to her American Hustle character for inspiration for the red carpet this season, and it’s definitely working for her.  One of our favourite looks this season has been her bold choice for the Golden Globe awards.   Who says redheads shouldn’t wear red?  Whoever it is, they are obviously very wrong.

BRING ON THE BLING

What would a party be without a little bit of bling?  For those occasions where a long, formal party dress isn’t required but a bit of special is, we love the Ruth Erotokritou Lurex Ruffle Dress.  Pair it with some strappy gold metallic sandals and a clutch and you are good to go.

BLOGGER IN BLOSSOM!!! JESS MUMZY-NOT TRIES OUT OUR BLOSSOM NEOS

Check out how stunning our resident blogger Jess from Mumzy-Not looks in our best-selling neo maternity jeans in royal blue!

When we asked Jess what she thought of her new Blossom neos (customised with our trademark Blossom band!) she told us… ‘They’re comfortable and stylish, and I love the contrast stitch detail. I can wear these for the school run with flats, or dress-up with a heel and blazer for night-time glamour. A maternity wardrobe must-have’

MATERNITY WARDROBE ESSENTIAL: THE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Styling your bump during the summer months can be tricky, but take a leaf out of Kourtney Kardashian and Vanessa Lachey’s books and invest in the ultimate fail safe wardrobe item -  a black maternity maxi dress. Earlier this week, the two celebs were spotted out and about rocking floor length designer maternity dresses as they ran errands. A simple black dress flatters pregnant figures whilst the maxi aspect will keep you cool and covered in the sun.

Although both moms-to-be accessorized their ensembles with dark shades and black over-sized handbags, the reality star polished her style off with fuschia pink blazer and strappy sandals, while Lachey opted for a tye dye blazer and sky-high heels as she headed for lunch in Malibu.

We love Kourtney Kardashian’s bold color contrast, but equally admire Lachey’s dressed-up version from her fab footwear showing off her gorgeous pins to her cropped blue blazer.

 Get The Look:

Blossom’s Natasha dress is the perfect maternity maxi dress to take you through you through your pregnancy – from start to finish. The smock detailing hides any lumps and bumps, making this dress the perfect throw-over for days when you’re not feeling too confident. What’s more, this fab maternity dress can be worn after birth too whilst you work on regaining your bikini body.

Take style props from Kourtney and Vanessa and team the Natasha dress with a simple and chic maternity blazer. M Missoni’s designer knitted blazer will pull the maxi look together, making you look smart and sophisticated for a day at the office or lunch with the girls.

Finish the outfit with sandals a la K Kardashian or heels if you want to emulate Vanessa Lachey’s Malibu look, and a statement necklace for an on–trend relaxed look.

 

PREGNANT CELEBRITY STYLE: MOLLY SIMS

Molly Sims certainly didn’t let pregnancy slow her down in terms of style or her social life. The model maintained a staggering pace since announcing she was expecting her first child – a little boy, which she delivered at the end of last month. Where Molly really excelled is dressing her bump for a glamorous evening out. The model, actress, and blogger has looked simply amazing during her pregnancy, rocking a mix of classic pieces and trend led accents. Over the past few months, we’ve seen her master both short and long hemlines, looking ever the glowing mum-to-be as she works the red carpet in a host of hues! Blossom shows you how to master Molly’s signature maternity style…

GET THE LOOK

For a show stopping pregnancy style, try our range of Alicia Mugetti hand painted designer dresses, perfect for emulating Molly’s evening looks. Alicia Mugetti, a New York figure in the Art and Fashion world, designed an eveningwear collection for Blossom, with designs inspired by natural elements. She works with the finest silks and hand dyes for original colours.  She also hand paints all the trims for a truly unique garment. We love the Victory dress from the range, the perfect fit and colour for a special occasion. Pair this statement dress with simple black heels and an evening bag.

Molly favours bold, block colours and this strapless red Poppy dress complete with flirty frills is great for parties. The strapless neckline juxtaposed with the drop hem detail walks the line between sophisticated and sexy. Who said maternity wear had to be dull? Dress up this fun cocktail dress with statement jewellery and a clutch bag for a night out with the girls. Also available in black.

We love our Fedella chiffon maternity dress, and we can imagine Molly opting for the teal colour for a night on the red carpet. The beautiful sequin bust detail adds an extra element of glamour to this striking evening gown. The maxi length in layers of luxury chiffon flatters and elongates pregnant figures. Also available in raspberry.
