Support Baby Buggy + Families in Need

JessicaSimpsonMaternity_Soul_Mates_TeeWe’ve teamed up with Jessica Simpson and Baby Buggy® to launch an exclusive teeshirt for the Jessica Simpson Maternity collection at our Destination Maternity® stores. In celebration of Mothers Day, five dollars of every tee shirt sold, up to $50,000,  will be donated directly to the nonprofit organization Baby Buggy, which provides families in need with essential gear, clothing, and educational services for infants and children up to age 14 across the country.

“Being a mom is the most meaningful life experience I have ever had.  I share a common need with all mothers – to make life as happy and comfortable as possible for my kids,” says Jessica Simpson.  “Baby Buggy is an incredible organization that helps so many mothers fulfill that need.  I am honored to have created this adorable tee to help support Baby Buggy and all of the moms out there who are working hard to be the best they can be for their kids.”

“We are extremely thankful for the continued support of Jessica Simpson and are excited to embark on a new partnership with Destination Maternity to raise even more awareness about our work,” says Baby Buggy Founder Jessica Seinfeld. “The funds raised will greatly help our organization’s efforts to support parents across the country as they work to raise their families in a safe and healthy environment.”

The super soft, heather grey tee shirt is adorable and is currently available online and in our Destination Maternity and Motherhood Maternity stores. If you purchase the tee we encourage you to help raise even more awareness for Baby Buggy and its network of moms and their families nationwide by sharing across social media using the hashtag #JSxBabyBuggy. -Olivia

Rachel Zoe’s Spring Picks

Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_1-608x742The exclusive Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod has finally arrived online and in stores! Following a fabulous launch party in West Hollywood and store events across the US celebrating the new collaboration, we sat down with Rachel to talk about the Spring line.

Rachel’s trademark bohemian style is woven throughout the collection, which balances timeless silhouettes with tailored classics. Excluding a polished glamour while remaining effortless and functional, the Spring collection includes carefree caftans and tunics and flowing dresses juxtaposed with structured jackets.Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_2-608x884Rachel_Zoe_APIP_Spring_Picks_3-608x1216

Rachel admits, “I lived in draped maxi dresses and structured jackets during my pregnancy. Whether you’re in your first or third trimester, these are two silhouettes you can mix and match into your wardrobe throughout your pregnancy.  Give your maxi a little daytime glamour and layer on the jewelry, add a pair of sunnies and opt for metallic sandals. When it comes to your favorite LBD, add an edge with a cool black biker jacket”.

Rachel’s iconic style truly comes through in this collection. Filled with must-have items and statement makers, we think you’ll love the line! -Olivia

A Celebration of Style

Rachel_Zoe_Event_Recap_1-608x571 Rachel_Zoe_Event_Recap_2-608x529

 

Last weekend, we celebrated our exclusive collection with style maven Rachel Zoe by throwing shopping celebrations in select A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity stores throughout the country. While shopping, guests enjoyed macarons from Dana’s Bakery personalized with our hashtag #RachelZoexAPIP in flavors like chocolate molten and jelly doughnut- YUM! Décor included all white floral arrangements with peeled back roses and hydrangeas (Rachel’s favorites).

I had the pleasure of hosting two of the events in sunny Aventura and Coral Gables, Florida.   It was so much fun to meet with clients and introduce them to the collection!  I was able to advise on the best ways to style the bump while helping the expecting moms-to-be shop for their maternity essentials and wardrobe.

Los Angeles-based blogger Leanne Barlow hosted the event in Beverly Hills and looked GORGEOUS in the Rachel Zoe Printed Caftan Maternity Dress.

Bloggers Nicole Gonzalez of Lillies and Leon, who also donned the caftan, and Staci Acquasanta of Leather and Leops, who rocked the Rachel Zoe Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, hosted the event in New York.  Plus, DreamDry,the premier blowdry and styling salon co-founded by Rachel, held a braid bar to add even more boho-chic flair.

Don’t fret if you missed our events!  The collection is available online and in stores.

Hope to see you at our future shopping events!  Xoxo- Olivia

A Night With Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe Rachel Zoe

Last week we celebrated A Pea in the Pod’s new and exclusive collection with Rachel Zoe in Los Angeles at The Chateau Marmont. The hotel is timeless and every bit glamourous, a perfect choice for the intimate gathering in honor of Rachel and her first ever maternity collection.

Upon arriving, Rachel, who donned a one shoulder black caftan, and husband Rodger excitedly shared photos taken earlier in the day of sons Skyler Morrison and Kaius Jagger. Hollywood mammas and mammas-to-be Jaime King, Casey Wilson, Vanessa Lachey, Tiffani Thiessen, Claire Coffee and Elizabeth Berkley joined the fete soon after. We all indulged in mocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres like pesto parmesan tortellini skewers and parmesan cups filled with mozzarella, tomato and basil.

Jaime, Casey, Tiffani and Claire all wore pieces from the Rachel Zoe Collection for A Pea in the Pod, opting for the Printed Caftan Maternity Dress, Exposed Zipper Maternity Mini Dress, Sleeveless Maternity Maxi Dress and Printed Shift Maternity Dress. I love how each made her outfit her own, really demonstrating the versatility of the collection and how flattering the pieces are on different figures. Casey chose a leopard printed open-toe high heel (totally glam!) while Claire added a denim jacket, for a more playful yet chic statement. Jaime, who wore her hair long and flowing, nailed the quintessential Bohemian aesthetic Rachel’s pieces are known for. Plus, she brought the best accessory of the night by far—her mom!

The party ended on a sweet note with to-go boxes from Dana’s Bakery which included birthday cake flavored macarons, a precursor to another party Rachel would be attending later in the week: son Skyler Morrison’s fourth birthday party!

 

Did You Know? Demi Was The 1st To Bare Her Bump

DEMI MOORE VANITY FAIR PREGNANT - Google Search_2015-03-12_13-07-36

 

In 1991, a seven-month pregnant Demi Moore, who would become a mother of three, posed nude on the cover of the August issue of Vanity Fair, showing off not only her baby bump, but her fierce confidence. Demi has inspired women in Hollywood and everywhere through her style, but it was this iconic picture, photographed by the famed Annie Leibovitz, that showed the world once and for all there is nothing chicer than being proud of your expecting figure.

Kate Middleton Can-Do-No-Wrong Maternity Style

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kate Middleton can do no wrong when it comes to many things, and her maternity style is one of them! She is nearing the end of her pregnancy, looking as amazing as always. Take a peek at my picks of her best dressed. From soft palettes to those pretty petticoat jackets…she’s nailed chic and feminine maternity dressing. We are so happy and lucky to have collections from across the pond like Isabella Oliver, of course Seraphine (which Kate has been seen wearing!) and soon to be introducing our collaboration with Madderson London! I will keep you updated on that! -Olivia

DID YOU KNOW? The Bump’s Out of the Bag

Grace-Kelly-Hermes

DID YOU KNOW: The classic Kelly Bag from Hermès was actually an attempt to hide Princess Grace Kelly’s (then) private baby bump? She used the bag as a designer disguise, which was photographed, featured on the cover of Life Magazine and of course in demand by everyone! This pregnant princess of Monaco sure knew how to make a pregnancy announcement! -Olivia
