The Fabfrocks maternity wishlist

Hi guys,

Another glorious Monday! Monday is my favourite day to create shopping wishlists: it's amazing how a little harmless Monday lunchtime browsing can make the week suddenly seem manageable again, isn't it? All of my virtual shopping this week has been pregnancy related, and as I'm guessing you don't want to see which moses basket or crib I'm thinking of buying (and frankly, who can blame you!) I've decided to filter this down to all of my  current fashion wants.

In terms of my growing girth, I have reached the point where I can no longer zip up my fitted dresses/skirts/jeans. Which means it's time to hit the shops and check out some maternity clothes. Gulp. So here's everything I'm currently wishing for. Apart from my waistline back, of course:
Coral ruffle dress, New Look, £39.99
Swan collar dress, Topshop, £38

Sequin tunic, Isabella Oliver, £104.50
Aztec tshirt dress, Topshop, £28

M by Missoni maternity cardigan, Blossom mother and child, £278 
See by Chloe yellow camoflage tunic, Blossom mother and child, £377

Actually finding pretty maternity clothes on the highstreet is really hard. If you like jersey or plain t shirts you're in luck! But if you want anything like my normal wardrobe (tea dresses, lace tees, leather leggings perhaps) then you won't find a great deal. And if you do, tell me where, because I'm getting desperate! Topshop seems to be the best I've seen so far, in terms of sticking to the same styles/patterns as their mainline range. But frankly, I can't afford a whole new wardrobe from Topshop that I will only be able to wear for 5 more months! Time to look at my existing wardrobe and get creative, I think...

Love Tor xx

Congratulations Tor, I shopped a lot in Hennes and Dorothy Perkins for well priced maternity wear - I see ASOS does a pretty good line too. Top Shop was over priced for what it was and did not wash and wear well - too much ironing action for my hormones to take! I too wanted pretty dresses as I was pregnant for the summer but had a winter baby (1st time round) but ended up sticking to loose tops and leggins/jeans. Just wear what you find comfortable and if you get tops think about them doubling up as feeding tops (you will get to that bit in the baby books) twosp xxxx
