Classy and Easy
I wasn't so sure about this dress after reading some of the reviews, but I was pretty pleasantly surprised. The cut is flattering and comfortable, and I get lots of compliments every time I wear it. (One woman who wasn't even pregnant asked me where she could get one.) My one gripe is that the V neckline sometimes slips down on me, showing the top of my bra. I wish these came in more than one size, so shorter people would have the option to get a slightly smaller one. Still though, great purchase for a stylish maternity basic that works for a night out or a day at work.

Really Flattering, Well Made
I was looking for a one-piece for awhile that was flattering, not loaded with underwire/pads, and also didn't have too much white. (I've had a few get discolored from sun and swim.) This one was just perfect. It's really well made and the way the seam at the waist hits, it nicely breaks up the body. The straps at the back also hold you really well so it stays in place in even a rough ocean. Really great suit. I hope Nanette Lepore keeps making more like this!

Great Style, but on my Second One
I love this necklace-- it's super stylish, unique, and hangs at a really great place on the body. For awhile, it was my go-to item to wear with plain sheath dresses to work. (I probably wore it at least two times each week.) About a year and a half in though, the gold started coming off showing some bronze underneath. I had to replace it, which made me wonder a bit about quality. I still love it though!

Awesome
I bought this a few weeks ago and thought it might feel or look cheap, given the price point. Instead, I was totally surprised by how amazing, stylish, and fun it is. It looks great with black T-shirts and dresses. I've been wearing it lots. One of my coworkers called it "a work of art."

Great Daytime Dress
This is easily the best day-to-day maternity dress I've found. The asymmetrical hem adds a lot of style, and unlike most Hatch dresses, it isn't cut super wide, so you don't feel like tent wearing it. I find it super comfortable too-- a really soft, nice jersey. I've worn it around on the weekends, and dressed it up for work with a nice statement necklace. If it came in more colors, I'd literally buy them all-- and I hate most maternity clothing!

Cool Watch, Weird Clasp
After my last Michael Kors watch wore out after 2 years of hard use, I decided to order this watch to try something a bit new. The watch is really pretty-- a nice sleek design, much thinner than the classic Kors models, and a pretty minimalist face. It's sort of half way between a sporty, men's watch and a more sleek female one. I have to say though that the clasp is absolutely maddening! There is no marked clasp not the back and no, like, button you squeeze to easily "release" the watch and loosen it. To get it off, you have to stick your finger between your wrist and the exact right spot on the band and pull outward (hard) to get the thing off. I also think it looks a bit cheap without a clasp, sort of like the stretchy watches you'd get at the drugstore.

Amazing with one Caveat
I absolutely love these James Perse tees. The fabric has a beautiful texture, and they feel light weight and paper thin-- a great classy basic for summer. My one gripe with these shirts though (and I have many of them) is that they stain very very easily and for some reason the stains don't come off very well. After ruining three of them, I take them off whenever I'm cooking or feeding my toddler!

Wash Out
This was a lovely material but the color was very, very light. On a pale person like me, it was completely washing me out. I had to return it.

Not for Me
I was really excited to get this dress, but I found the cut sort of awkward-- it's VERY short and also a bit wide and blousey. On a very tall skinny person that might look cool, but on me, it just wasn't working.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Cool Top
This top looks lovely paired with a black pencil skirt and is already a great go-to piece in my work wardrobe. I'm not a huge fan of scuba material generally, but it is nice that it is never wrinkled and very easy to clean. The cut is really nice too. One thing I hadn't realized is that it's pretty structured with shoulder pads. Still, a great purchase.
