Since I found out I was pregnant 6 months ago, I secretly vowed that I will endeavour not to resort to maternity clothes. Wishful thinking served itself well until the 3rd trimester, where my belly decided that it should be a show-off. Following fashion trends has been virtually impossible and when I look longingly at most pieces in my wardrobe, I can only utter the words “et tu, Brute?”
I used to shudder at the word ‘maternity’. But one pregnancy label has proved me wrong: Soon Maternity. You may recall my beaming smile in this raspberry dress some time before our babymoon at the Malvern boutique. The pieces are designed with both style and comfort in mind. Think figure-enhancing fabrics, fun and colourful prints, in flattering and versatile shades, that embrace the right curves and dress up the baby bump. I was smitten. I brought my Soon Maternity dresses to New York as they didn’t compromise style for shape and could easily be dressed up and down. Now back in Melbourne, I still find myself gravitating towards them each day. Here is one of my favourite dresses that can be worn during the day and for work.
Soon Maternity Celina Dress / Chloe Jacket / Christian Dior Bag / Scooter Heels
This Soon Maternity dress even got Heidi Middleton’s (Sass & Bibe designer) tick of approval. When I bumped into her on the way to Bergdorf Goodman in New York, she said that I looked “really beautiful.” Now I can give birth happy.
When I mentioned to Soon Maternity that many of my friends and readers are moms and soon-to-be-moms, they were kind enough to provide a very generous prize!

For all readers, Soon Maternity is also offering 10% off their online orders with the promo code cecylia10. I’ve got my eye on this dress. Happy Shopping!
This prize ($500 voucher) is for Australian residents only and it can be spent either online or in store.
[spoiler title=”中文版”]自从年初我发现我怀孕后，我暗暗发誓，我会尽力不穿“孕妇装”。随着时尚潮流几乎是不可能的， 但我将尽量穿原拥有的衣服。但当我的宝宝肚越来越大后，我不得不服输。
以前，听到“孕妇装”这三个字会使我不寒而栗。但是，一个孕妇品牌救了我的恐惧：Soon Maternity。您可能还记得前一段时间我穿着这条红色裙子在她们的店里拍了这张照片。我们去美国的时候我带上了好几件Soon Maternity的裙子。她们的设计既有风格又舒适。衣服都有弹性力，花纹有趣，色彩缤纷，专为有宝宝肚的女士设计。在纽约时，这几条Soon Maternity裙子几乎是我每天穿的衣服。它们很容易配其它服装。现在回到墨尔本，我还能常穿它们。你看，在这里我穿着一条我超爱的Soon Maternity裙子，休闲的款式和去上班的风格。我在纽约时，有一天穿着这条黑色的连衣裙，我碰到了澳洲著名品牌的设计师Heidi Middleton，她都说穿地很漂亮。那天绝是美国的一个亮点 ：）
当我和Soon Maternity提到很多我的朋友和读者即将成为妈妈，她们立即愿意送给我的读者一个非常慷慨的奖品！ 赢者能在她们的精品店里花$500礼券！要赢，只需加入他们的通讯[这里]，然后下面流言让我们知道，你会怎样花这$500礼券。
