GIVEAWAY: Mothers en Vogue

EDIT 15.2.15: Congratulations Jaime Chan! You have both won yourself set of mother and daughter Rosette Bourbon!

Nursing is a big part of my life now and the chunk of nursing I hate most is, dressing down. My pretty dresses hang in the closet looking forlorn. When I run my fingers through them, I whispered, “One day, you will come out to play. I’m sorry you do not have a buttoned front.”

Thanking the stars above, the fashion scene is changing now! Designers are hearing the cries of pregnant and nursing moms. We can now look like trend-setters with a baby in tow. Away with those loose unattractive tops which make us look frumpy, we now have Mothers en Vogue (MEV). 

Founded in 2003, MEV was born out of a conviction that nursing mothers and mothers-to-be deserve clothing which is not only fashionable but also comfortable and high in quality. There are a whole lot of nursing retailers in our market but I am blown away by MEV‘s innovative nursing construction. 
We played dress-up with this grey snake skin print. I believe that mom and tot fashionableness is attained when outfits are not too coordinated nor too different. I am not the kind of mom who goes for the ultra-matched (“matchy-matchy”) but happy to hit the streets with Faye in anything that are moderately matched. Coordinated apparels make us look like we belonged to one another and they do make lovely pictures. However, I always make sure we don’t look like photocopies of one another. 
Now peel your eyes away from joyful Faye and look for my nursing access. Can you find it?This dress features two zip fronts to conceal an underlying camisole (my own) for discreet nursing. Not only is it a comfortable piece, it makes nursing fuss-free as well. *haha* Can you imagine the shocked looks on the everyone’s faces when they see me go Zip and Pop? Yes, I am one of those moms who nurses openly wherever I am even at wedding dinners and their outfits allow me to do so without embarrassing anyone with bare breasts.

Our outfits got us into the limelight wherever we go. Passer-bys stopped at their tracks to play with Faye, strangers told us how much we stood out in the crowd and mothers couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw Faye suckling inconspicuously from this trendy number.

May I entice mommies with twins? With two zip fronts, what a breeze this would make for tandem nursing!

MEV‘s Bourbon Rosettee is my all-time favourite for a casual [or can even be dressy depending on styling] day out. It is one of their perennial styles, featuring the same corsage of flowers trailing over one shoulder. We are wearing the white Bourbon Rosettes that I’ve styled us ready for Chinese New Year! We have four days of visiting this year and it is important to dress comfortably, especially when we are needed to nurse on-the-go.

How do you succeed in looking identical, yet unalike? Don on different bottoms!

Constructed with neckline–access, I can conveniently pull my top downwards to nurse, while an inner chest lining functions as a modesty cover. It is designed so cleverly, it does not look any way like a nursing top. I love the longevity in MEV‘s designs. Not only are they wearable during maternity, it is styled for nursing and post delivery. I do see myself wearing these pieces even after I stop nursing Faye unlike other nursing wears that are loose and unflattering.

Faye is 8 months old and wearing size 6-12 months. They come in sizes 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-24 months. Mommy is wearing XS and the adult wear ranges from XS to XL. All photographs and styling are mommy’s own.
