I've been there myself just six months ago; I remember telling my husband how I wanted a personal shopper for myself to bring clothes for me so I could just put them on and look fab . It was such a hassle for me to even get up from bed because I was constantly feeling nauseated and tired.
That's where pregnancy saga episode "looking good" very often finishes - it's not because we don't care it's because we have no energy to do it.
When you're pregnant, you are a radiant, life-bearing force and you should dress like the goddess you are and having a personal stylist and shopper is a godsend. And fear not. Aga to the rescue.
Two trying-on sessions with I A.M. the Brand and Carol was sorted. My main focus was COLOUR because it's such a powerful language of our mood. My choices had to exude "happiness" but with a soft and fresh tincture. You don't need to look like a rainbow to emphasise your frame of mind. Choosing the right tones for your aura and skin tone even if they, separately, don't seem to be the brightest, "happiest" colours is the key. See the transformations and let me know what you think.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with the shapes she's wearing but see what happens after we refreshed the colour.
Now have a look at the "before" photo again and focus on the black & white pattern.
What do you think about this option? Horizontal stripes, huh. And you thought they make you look bigger.
I added bright red to the look and a fun clutch to create an effect of resonating cheerfulness
Here's a holiday option designed specifically for Carol. She was expecting comfortable boho. Very easy to wear. Yes the sandals too. They have only two sets of buckles so you won't spend hours putting them on.
Oh an one more thing (this time definitely lat one) - What was an issue for me, and is also a requirement for Carol, was the cost. Unless you are planning to end up in the show "18 and counting" you really don't want to spend a fortune on maternity clothes so the goal is to spend as little as possible without compromising on style and the look. The aim is to fish out from your wardrobe the pieces that still fit (the further it is to the due date, the harder it is to even reach to the wardrobe, I know) and then purchase a few that go with them but maximise your look (meaning - emit your glow to the galaxy and beyond).
