FROCKSTAR: Eiman Hamza is a bump it up babe!

Eiman Hamza, founder of Happiness Clothing, is not sacrificing an ounce of her fashion sense to pregnancy. From airy shirt dresses to form fitting frock and fedora combos, this LA based designer creatively channels her flirty, free wheeling style in a way that defines her as a true Bump It up Babe.

Here are three looks (and how to get them) that spotlight her singular fashion sense:

LOOK 1
“Black dress with tan shoes on Abbot Kinney.  Simple, chic, with a bit of grunge. I like to add some edge to classic styles.”

Pregnancy Style Prediction: Kerry Washington Stays Poised & Polished

Whether donning her Olivia Pope power persona or stepping out on the red carpet, one thing is for certain: Kerry Washington is always poised and polished. But, will she be able to maintain her pulled together style throughout nine months of pregnancy? My vote is a resounding “yes!”

Here’s what I predict: Kerry will wear a lot of dresses, some drapey and dramatic and, as her bump grows, some fitted. But, they will all be the picture of elegance. Since she is so petite, she will have the luxury of sporting flowy non maternity designers like Zero Maria Cornejo, Jenni Kayne, Haider Ackermann and Thakoon. When she opts for maternity pieces , she will turn to fashion forward brands like Isabella Oliver, Hatch and More of Me maternity. Jeans? I think not. When going casual, Kerry will opt for leggings paired with ladylike blouses that graze her belly. Or, you guessed it, a shirt dress. For the red carpet, she will turn to strapless empire waisted  gowns  accented with a gorgeous clutch and statement earrings. For footwear, she will stick you to heels (even if it is just a micro heel) until the bitter end.
