Miss Emma’s personal/promotional style has gotten extremely twee and a little precious as she werqs her way through maternity. We’re a bit surprised by how well some of these styles seem to work for her. If we’d been asked a year ago what her style sweet spot was, we probably would’ve landed on something with quite a bit more edge than this. Then again, we all would have answered a whole lot of questions differently a year ago, wouldn’t we?
That is a whole hell of a lot of ruffle action. Although we’re less disturbed the number of ruffles and more concerned about a design that makes it look like a baby sling for her baby belly. It’s clear from the look book shots that this dress wasn’t designed with maternity in mind, which is no big deal since a lot of fashion can be sort of re-interpreted as maternity wear. And we don’t think there’s anything wrong about a maternity outfit that puts emphasis on the belly. Not an hour ago, some woman walked past our front windows in one of those maternity tops with ruching on the sides and thought it looked fantastic on her. We think this design might have worked a little better for her with some editing. Remove the big buttons and about 2/3 of the ruffles, we say. Also: she needs jewel tones and saturated colors. This beigey peach matches her own coloring too much.
