We welcomed the warmer weather in WRNY-style with a fashionable event at Belly Dance Maternity.
The amount of change that happens during pregnancy can be overwhelming. Luckily there are some rituals that stay the same whether you’ve got a growing belly or not. Like spring shopping. True, what we’re shopping for and where we’re shopping at might be different, but ladies, there will be shopping. To help pregnant gals in NYC get their fair share of our favorite ritual, we recently paired up with Belly Dance Maternity, one of our favorite maternity shopping spots, for a special Spring Style event. Ladies from all around town stopped into the West Village store to check out the best belly-friendly looks for warm weather, which we assured them is on the way. (Right?) In between mocktails, tasty treats and luxurious hand massages, Belly Dance’s expert staff -- including founder Jennifer Strom-Simonte -- helped fit and flatter our shoppers. The talented Desiree Walters Photography made sure to document our fun. And everyone went home with a sweet swag bag, filled with treats from Bundle Organics, Nine Naturals, Pamela Peery’s POP, Belli Skincare, Healthy Mama and more. Check out Desiree’s gorgeous photos of the event, then lady, get your own spring ritual on stat. The warm weather is (really) on the way. Photography by Desiree Walters Photography.
