Hi! I am Dina Igoe, co-owner of Apple Seed Maternity & Baby Boutique in Old Town, Alexandria and today, we are building the perfect maternity wardrobe. We are on to accessories right now. So we are going to show you how to wear the same dress really formal for an evening event or real casual. So here is a beautiful dress from Olian. It has got a great little print and we are actually using our little prosthetic belly here for nine months. So right now Cameron is ready to go to a great day wedding and you can also see we have paired this wonderful dress with a really pretty, formal necklace. It's nice and shiny. She's got nice little sparkly shoes and she is ready for a great event. Here we have the same great dress but definitely much more casual. The necklace is gone, we have actually tied it in the back instead of the front for more casual look and we are pairing it with a really cute pair of flip-flops. Though this is a great day look, for brunch or just to hang out in the town. This is a really nice tunic from Olian. It's a nice brown color, and definitely works great with a little bump, but it's pretty plain. So, we are going to show you how to jazz it up a little bit. So everyone has a little gold chain in their accessory box. So we are going to put on a nice chunky necklace, definitely, already does a lot for this top and then you can always add a belt which just adds another dimension to your outfit. As you can see, now Cameron is ready for a great night out with the girls. In our next and final clip, we are going to talk about transitioning your maternity clothes to the next phase, postpartum after you have had the baby. You will be surprised you can wear a lot of things afterwards and they are very useful; especially nursing tops and things that you can use for nursing. When we come back we will talk about that.
