Princess Kate - Fabulous Pregnancy Fashion

Princess Kate can do no wrong... She is the epitome of elegance and grace... Even at 7 months pregnant!

Like seriously how can see she look so amazing... does she not get swollen feet or blotchy complexion or sweat or get as big as anything or all the other things that us mere mortal women experience when pregnant!

By the look of the photos below o-b-v-i-o-u-s-l-y NOT!

I have compiled my favourite Kate-pregnant looks...

For the Queens Garden Party on the 22nd of May, 7 month pregnant Kate chose to wear a modified Emilia Wickstead coat/dress.

Kate chose another Emilia Wickstead dress to the National Portrait Gallery in April.  Stunning!

Never one to worry about being an "outfit repeater" Kate has worn this Topshop polka dot dress a number of time! I can see why! 

Her love of colour and coats is highlighted here... Wearing this Tara Jarmon springtime essemble in April for the Naomi House Children's Hospice.

Kate wore a fitted shift from Erdem for a Manchester School visit

The frayed Mulberry is another firm favourite of Kate's.  She has worn a few pieces from this collection in recent months.  Again she favoured a coat.

A big favourite of mine is this MaxMara Studio wrap dress Kate wore in February.

She still has a couple of months before the baby is born and I am sure we have a few more amazing looks to see...

Kimmy looking good!

I think it is totally unfair that pregnant women cop so much heat for the way their bodies change during pregnancy!  Not fair at all... Most times they can't help it! (Unless you are my friend Mrs S who loved ice cream!)

For 9 months during both of my pregnancies, I was so sick that I ended up loosing weight, yet everyone was complimenting me on how good I looked... seriously couldn't they see how green I was!

Although not a fan of Kim Kardashian, I feel sad for her.  Here she is coping with all the changes that are going on in her life and her body, she has live out these changes in full view of the whole world.  I know what you're going to say, she chose to live her life under the spotlight of the cameras, agreed but there is no need to be cruel about it!

Sure she is guilty of making some terrible fashion choses, and some pieces are plain hidious, but she has had some great looks as well... funny how no-one has highlighted those! Or better still how amazing did she look in a bikini on a recent visit to Mykonos... really people this is a woman who is 7 months pregnant!

For that reason I have decided to show you my favourite "pregnant Kimmy" looks!

how amazing does she look in this lace kaftan?

Nude and leather pants... 

she nails the casual look, because of the beautiful soft fabrics

the fabric is a little heavy but still a very elegant dress

white jeans and cami and nude cardi... gorgeous

a nice little shift

all I am looking at is THE bag!

boyfriend jean and Chanel! Perfect!

New designs

The next phase of Little by Little is going really well...

I am constantly on the look out for new things and new designers... that's the fun part of the job! 

very positive...
Places where I always make a point of going and seeing what is going on is places like Finders Keepers, Mathilda Market and Magnolia Square.  In the past I have picked up people like Tutu Du Monde (Matilda's Market!), Mon Star, Mill and Mia (now going really far back). I love these markets because you meet the designers selling their wares.  They are new and raw and unaffected.  Their passion is their product and I can't help but feel that energy being infectious.

the neon rabbin cushion

Recently at Finders Keepers, I found this gorgeous lady that has a great range of homewares, a brand called Bird meets Bliss.  Her homewares are minimal, symbolic and have a positive thing to say about the world!  Bam!  Need to have! Her gorgeous cushions will fluro bunnies and her I love mum prints are amazing and what about the gorgeous "You're beautiful" prints... what a positive and uplifiting message to give to someone or even yourself!

the pillowcases

Recently I heard that she is introducing new designs and new products... well I can't wait to see them!
