I recently headed to the big smoke with my sister to attend London Edge & get a good look at what's available in the Spring/Summer collections of my favourite brands. We had a blast stroking all the beautiful fabrics, and chatting to other bloggers. I thought you might be interested too so I've gathered some of my favourite items below.
I love love love the Seamstress Of Bloomsbury clothes and have long lamented the fact that they don't go up to my size. They are a small company offering excellent quality products and so many of them are feeding friendly. I've been lusting after their gorgeous blouses forever, so I was thrilled to hear they are slowly expanding their range of sizes to include some larger ones, going up to an 18 in some dresses now. Fingers crossed the 46/48" busted blouses will soon follow and I can finally add that unicorn to my closet!
You all know I'm a huge Collectif fan. They've always been one of the few feeding friendly vintage styles that I could actually fit into and these two dresses and cute cardigan would make an excellent addition to any summer wardrobe. The Carly cardigan is the cutest summer cardis I've seen in ages, and I adore the current Caterina dress I have, so I'm really hoping these are still available in my size when I finally get paid again. Easy to dress up or down, that mint green is timeless!
Hell Bunny have some beautiful things, as always, but not much of it is feeding friendly this time around. I love this button front paradise dress but I so wish they had gone for working buttons on the front as they are so much more practical 😭
You can't go wrong with their tops though and these cuties will see you through any season, just layer with a cardi for cooler weather.
Lady Voluptuous is a fantastic brand, and while I didn't see them at London Edge, they are a must have entry for any feeding friendly wardrobe. The Ada dress is great for those who prefer less fullness in the skirt whilst still retaining the fabulous v neck that makes the boobages look so good.
Estella does need to have the cross over on the bodice unpicked to make it feeding accessible, but that doesn't take long and how cute is this olive print? Finally, I'm in love with this lotus print Lyra. Can you get any more summery? I'm hoping it's still around when I finally have some pennies again as if it's anything like the other two I already own it will be fab!
My beloved Miss Candyfloss never fail me and their housewife collection is to die for. The Mariana, with its adorable scalloped detail collar, is already sold out of most sizes in the mint green so I'm very glad I got my order in early. I can't wait to get my hands on it and the other items I've ordered, which include this cute sundress and the Gigi jumpsuit in green. I honestly think that every mummy, breast feeding or not, NEEDS this jumpsuit. Yes, it's not cheap, and Maternity pay is either non-existent or Shit, but to be blunt, you cannot put a price on the body confidence it gives you.
As I step into the voluminous legs that cinch me in at the waist, before blossoming out at the pleated bust, and pull that zipper up, I transform into a goddess...capable of anything and everything, in control of my destiny and woe betide anyone who gets in my way. Buy the damn suit people, I really doubt you will regret it!
So what's on your radar for the new season? What can you just not wait to get your hands on? Hop on over to my Facebook page... www.facebook.com/tootsie2121 ...and let me know. Spam me with your favourite finds!
