Here at Well Rounded NY, we’ve always maintained that “mom style” is not a bad thing. In fact, many of the most stylish women we know are moms. Today we’re introducing you to a group of some of best dressed moms on the West Coast… who have recently been introduced to each other. Meet the Fashion Mamas LA.
Founded by Racked LA editor Natalie Alcala, whose first son Diego arrived last fall, Fashion Mamas LA caters specifically to moms in the fashion industry, so far including more than 30 designers, editors, stylists, models, publicists and bloggers, with kids ranging from 4 months to 5 years. Ladies love the kid-friendly socializing as well as the opportunity to compare notes, vent, network, make new friends, meet other babies, and hang with other cool girls that are going through the same things. But these aren’t your typical neighborhood coffee shop meet-ups; think Unplug Meditation sessions, kids clothing trunk shows, roundtables with celebrity mamas, pop-up events, gift lounges and more.
“Support is everything when you're a new mom, especially when you're also a working mom. Although I give props to all working mamas out there, I wanted to create a group that specifically caters to ladies in the fashion business, since this industry isn't your average 9 to 5,” says Alcala. “I'm so impressed how much care these ladies take to maintain their personal style even though we're all exhausted raising little human beings.”
Below, some of these insanely stylish (and hardworking) mamas show off their Well Rounded style, and offer up a few tips for WRNY readers on having an insanely stylish pregnancy. Then find out how to get in on the action below.
