Kiki’s Fashions Review and Giveaway

DSC_0007
 I bring you a nice surprise today. I know I normally focus on recipes, lifestyle, and music, but since getting pregnant I have come along with new experiences. In addition to new recipes and eating changes while being pregnant I have also needed to modify with my wardrobe and that means nice, affordable, maybe cheap maternity clothes. This is all natural when it comes to getting pregnant.


After I found out at my last appointment that I was right on the dot at healthy weight gain, I thanked God for keeping me at a healthy eating lifestyle while being pregnant. Even though I am still going through some morning sickness, I am eating a lot more vegetables. After coming back from Germany and not getting enough greens, I really have been enjoying salads and asparagus! I simply can’t get enough of my asparagus.


Back to clothing. I have not really gone overboard with buying but I have tried to get the essentials. Part of my wardrobe has included some nice skinny pants, a pair of shorts, some skirts, and plenty of tops. Tops seem to be terribly essential since I seem to be spoiling more of them. I have a harder time keeping food away from my shirt.


Is anyone feeling me??? I keep staining my shirts! I have to stay away from buying white shirts too! Ha ha ha.

The most essential clothing item for me lately is having a some dresses. I did take my nice dress to Germany to attend the opera, which still fit! I was so happy!


There is a reason though I am pregnant over the summer. Michigan weather has been lovely lately but it is the perfect season for maxi dresses. What are maxi dresses? These dresses can be informal or formal lengthy dresses that can be worn anytime and by all women, but they are PERFECT for pregnant ladies.


These maxi dresses work well as maternity dresses too because as the belly grows it grows into the dress. Perfect, right?


I had a chance to try a dress from Kiki’s Fashions so I chose a long maxi dress that I could wear in the evenings or to an afternoon summer event. I chose a Black Blue Print Maxi Dress and LOVED the feel. It did not bunch up in the back and the bust area was perfect! The beauty of this dress is that I will also be able to wear it POSt-pregnancy!

I am not a big polyester wearer, but even though this dress is 92% polyester and 8% spandex, the dress felt cool and smooth on my skin. I plan to wear a black sweater when fall comes along. I felt super comfortable in this dress and am already planning to buy a shorter dress! Nothing is really over $30 so really take advantage of buying something fun!


Kiki’s Fashions has generously offered to give away ONE $25 Giftcard to one of my readers. Yet again, these dresses are perfect as non-maternity or as maternity dresses, but if you have a friend who is in search of dresses, this is the site to check out!
