Back to Blogging Review & Giveaway! Seraphine Maternity Dress!

I haven't written in almost three months! End of pregnancy + new baby can leave one in an exhausted state of mind. I'm in the process of updating the design and name (changing to just Bliss + Baby... still happily wedded, just changing direction) I thought I'd kick off my return to blogging with an amazing giveaway!

Ever heard of Seraphine Maternity?  I had not until they contacted me in December to do a review of one of their beautiful dresses. When I looked at their website, I was blown away by all the beautiful clothes for pregnant and nursing mothers. Their clothes have been worn by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Alyson Hannigan, Kate Hudson and Halle Berry! I am always looking at celebrities in fashion magazine to get ideas on what to wear, especially when pregnant when I'm not feeling so cute, so I was very impressed by their celebrity clientele (although their clothes speak for themselves!).


I was fortunate enough to review the gorgeous Silver Buttoned Charcoal Shift dress. I was always buying dresses while pregnant, and let me tell you, it's all about the cut and fabric. You want a dress that is flattering to your bump & body shape, plus you will need something that won't look super-worn less than a week later. Which I was always having a problem with. Which meant I was always trying to find that "it" maternity dress, and I never succeeded until I wore this shift dress.
The best picture I got was with my iPhone. I got a Canon Rebel T3i for Christmas, and when I was taking pictures for this dress, I couldn't figure out the white balance, and so those pictures are kinda shot. But you can see that this dress is beautiful and it's all about the little details: ruched material at the shoulders. Silver buttons down the back. Form-fitting around the belly. I chose to wear it with a little black belt, black leggings, and black closed-toe pumps. The material felt so comfortable! By far, my favorite dress from this pregnancy. If I could, I would add all of Seraphine's maternity and nursing clothes to my wardrobe!

Tessa Solomons, Bookings Editor from Marie Claire, had this to say about the dress:
"This dress follows this season’s minimal trend, the sleek shape, and subtle details, make it a perfect versatile wardrobe piece.I have dressed it down for work with opaque tights and boots, and dressed it up with some statement jewellery and heels for evening. The jersey is such excellent quality, which is essential due the amount of times I will be wearing this! Wearable through from autumn to early summer, and I can even see myself wearing this after the baby."

  24. It is a lovely dress idea. However many doctors advice not to wear stiff garments during maternity and to wear lose clothes.
