Rosie Pope is a reality show celebrity now, but there is no reason devoted pregnant fashionistas should hold that against her. And with the pickings for true luxury maternity clothing being as slim as they are, beggars can’t be choosers.
Rosie just posted her new Fall 2011 Line for sale in the store’s online boutique and there are new styles, but I am most excited about new versions of my favorite Rosie Pope pieces. Most notably, Rosie has released numerous new versions of the very popular Hampton Tunic and with this selection of new vibrant solids and prints, it’s hard to only buy one. I love the Hampton Tunic for the office, so I have already ordered mine in the new vivid purple solid. Of course, I couldn’t resist one of the new, printed Hampton Tunics, available in a trendy new cheetah print and black and white floral print.
Rosie also released her Classic Oxford again this season in white, blue, and light pink. It’s difficult to find a basic maternity blouse that fits the pregnant physique and doesn’t scream maternity blouse, with the telltale pleats, empire waist, or a sash in the back. This blouse is fitted, but with ample room in the front for your bump. Dare I say that paired with a simple pair of jeans, this is a somewhat sexy maternity blouse? And because of the slim fit, it works really well underneath sweaters and jackets if sexy isn’t what you are going for.
Rosie Pope’s prices are high, so be prepared to spend between $100 and $300 for her pieces. They are, however, likely to be the maternity pieces you reach for again and again.
