I LOVED this store when I was pregnant and think it is one of the greatest maternity boutiques in OC. Stephani Clymer, owner of Xpecting Maternity on 17th Street in Costa Mesa, is a DOLL. She helped me shop and brought me things to try on that I never would have picked for myself, but ended up being really cute. The best part about her boutique is that there are all price points, from affordable to splurge-worthy. Xpecting definitely showcases being pregnant doesn’t mean sacrificing style!
Personal tip for newly pregnant first time mamas: In my opinion, it is better to pay a little more for a handful of good maternity pieces that you feel CUTE in, and just wear them all the time. I wasted a lot of money on cheap maternity clothes that I subsquently felt so NOT cute in, and that feeling put me in such a bad mood when getting dressed! Next time I will invest a little more in fewer items.
Xpecting is offering 15% off your ENTIRE purchase if you mention Tiny Oranges (excluding strollers) until 8/31/08!! You can also redeem this savings online by entering coupon code ORANGE (case sensitive.) Only 2 weeks left so happy shopping hot mamas!
Stephani will be doing a guest blog soon on maternity basics, where to save and where to splurge, stay tuned…
