Why did you sign up for Armoire?
My first pregnancy the thing I hated the most was getting up in the morning and standing in my closet thinking, “What am I going to wear today?” When I saw Armoire, and the ability to try and return multiple times a month, I had to give it a shot. I knew the last thing I wanted to do was stand in my closet again feeling overwhelmed.
What do you love most about Armoire?
I love the variety and the service! I have tried everything from tops to pants to jackets and dresses – and when in doubt Brittany has always added a few more things to my closet that seem to work perfectly!
How has Armoire benefited you throughout your pregnancy?
I have had the ability to stay professional while at work and dress it up a bit on the weekends without overspending on maternity clothes this pregnancy! I also have been happier in the mornings while getting ready – it’s always fun to wear something new!
What have been some of your favorite Armoire pieces?
I LOVE (and just ordered both for the second time) the Tart grey sweater and Brass stripped dress – both were comfy and stylish. I also had a white blouse I wore early on, and a BCBG red Blouse I ordered that was adorable.
What would you say to others thinking about trying armoire during their pregnancy?
Armoire has allowed me to expand my wardrobe and feel more confident on a daily basis. The price is well worth the benefit and it’s unlike any other service I’ve seen. You can return items as frequently as you would like throughout the month at no added cost, which has allowed me to have up to 12 outfits in 1 month alone.
What's your style advice?
Take the time to get dressed! Comfy clothes are great but I know that when I put something on that feels good, I feel good. Treat yourself, you deserve it.
How do you treat yourself?
Get a baby sitter and buy last second tickets to Blues hockey games with my husband!
What’s some advice you have for other pregnant or soon to be pregnant ladies?
Keep your head up and your eye on the prize! There will be great days and bad days but in the end it’s all worth it. Do one thing a day for yourself.
