On September 14th two great things happened to me. The first, I had my little lady at 10:36pm and the other was getting my hands on some pieces from the Altuzarra for Target collection. You may be wondering how I was able to go shopping while in labor and I’ll tell you, it was easy lol. Got to the hospital at 8am and had a lot of time on my hands waiting for the baby to come. In order to keep distracted from the contractions and the discomfort, I did the only thing a fashionista would do to keep busy, I got on my phone and did a little online shopping. My nurse was pretty impressed I was in the mind set to go online shopping while in labor and I was like “Um yea, it’s Altuzarra for Target!”. I’m glad I got the pieces I had been eyeing for a while and now 7 weeks later, I can share with you my Altuzarra for Target review.
Keeping in my mind my post baby bump body, I ordered the following pieces in a larger size just to help me transition back into normal clothes.
As we embark on Autumn/Winter 2014 trends, I needed to up my sweater game. The cranes are a beautiful touch to a basic black sweater. You really don’t need to dress it up with accessories since the cranes do all the talking. This sweater is a great look for your simple black on black outfit for the office.
This sweater is comfortable and a great transitional piece that can be dressed up or down. Can you say Sunday Funday look?
As soon as I saw this dress I knew I would be slipping into it for my 32nd birthday celebration *Side note, it was 7 days after giving birth*. I was nervous about the size, cut, fabric choice and if it would fit well after child birth, but I had nothing to worry about. The dress fit great 7 days after labor and delivery and still fits great 7 weeks later!
Looking for that shirt to spruce up your office attire? Look no further than this beautiful orchid print, navy blue shirt. Strong structure, feels great on my changing body and gives a feeling of sleek sophistication without the print being overbearing.
If you’re a girl on a budget like me, you’re always thinking about how you can re-purpose your day to night looks. This shirt can be worn to the office, drinks with the girls or date night with hubby. The orchid print is a great statement piece so over accessorizing isn’t necessary.
I can honestly say I’m very happy with the Altuzarra for Target collection. I wasn’t the ideal customer for the collection being that my body would be transitioning for a long time. However, all my worries about size, fabric and cut went away and the clothes fit the way I want them to. Another great thing about these pieces is probably the most important part, it makes me feel like me again and gives me that boost of confidence all new mommies need after the transition into mommyhood!
