Pregnancy Tales: Stylishly Working It While Nauseated

It's spring 2013 market week and my first time doing these back-to-back, cross-town appointments while pregnant. So, you can imagine how elated I was when Autumn Hawk, a designer I met this morning, complimented me by says, “You’re the best dressed editor I've seen all week!”

Little did she know, I felt like sh*t. Between hormones, extra time devoted to covering up pimples caused by those hormones, finding the prefect non-maternity maternity outfit, and the nausea of taking a bus or taxi just to get to an appointment, looking sharp is a challenge.

But, there are no excuses, not even a lemon-sized fetus inside your belly. I felt confident and beautiful all day because I chose to fight through the struggles of managing my work day while pregnant.

My mission is to make you see that when you look good you’ll begin to feel confident and happy in your life.

If you’re pregnant or going through your own personal or professional setbacks, take the time to dress up, get your nails done and spritz on the hairspray. I welcome your comments and can’t wait to chat.

PS Speaking of non-maternity, maternity wear, Autumn Hawk New York has some amazing pieces that are sexy, stretchy and comfy. Time to work out my credit card. 


  1. You are looking amazing!! And what's that sweater onesie? How convenient to making you look sharp no matter how much you run down a sidewalk or grab a bus! CONGRATS!!!

  2. Thank you SO much Mista! As stated, it's not easy, but I firmly believe it's necessary to take care of ourselves. The "onesie" in the collage is a bodysuit from Autumn Hawk for an upcoming season. Here are some you can buy now:

    Have a wonderful weekend, and remember always Be Your Best You!
