One of our favourite series returns for the first time in 2013 but this time, with a brand new name!
The concept of Get Her Chic will continue with a new blogger and their style featured each month but from now on the series will be known as Shop Her Chic.
To kick off Shop Her Chic for 2013, we have the beautiful (and glowing!) Mez from Domestic Divinty!
I have something to admit. I don’t follow trends, I don’t consider myself fashionable and I have never purchased Vogue magazine. I know. Don’t hold it against me, please.
I have always been a slightly lazy person, often considering hanging up clothing after wearing it as too much effort and if it smells good from the pile in my bedroom, it will do.
I do try and dress for my body type though and being 32 weeks pregnant (at the time this article goes live) has thrown me some curve balls, literally. I have always been small yet curvy with an hourglass figure. I knew how to dress for my body type and that was by either wearing tailored fitted dresses with a length that hit the knee or full skirted dresses with a nipped in waist. I currently have tubs full of over 80 beautiful dresses which I hope to be wearing again soon after the baby is born.
I don’t really wear pants. They just never seem to fit me right, standing at 158cm has it’s downfalls in the clothing alteration department. Pants also do not hide sins in the same way that skirts or dresses do if you ask me.
As for maternity wear, I have tried to wear what I find to be comfortable and will be wearable after our daughter is born in early March 2013. I have seen a lot of beautiful maternity wear but cannot justify the cost of the majority of it, preferring to find a bargain from Target, Big W, Sportsgirl or Kookai instead. The only down fall of buying clothes that are not Maternity is that the bigger the bump gets, the shorter the dress gets and for someone who doesn’t particularly love her knees, this is an issue.
I am trying to embrace necklaces more and more these days as I find they can liven up a dull outfit and are a great and inexpensive way to change the look of that dress that you have been wearing to death lately.
I confess that I do not have a great love for shoes and handbags like most other girls that I know, I am quite content to wear the same shoes to death (quite literally, I don’t buy a new pair until the current pair fall apart usually) and bang around the same bag.
The outfit in these photos was taken when we attended a casual Engagement Party but is pretty true to my every day style at the moment.

I do think that if you look in the mirror, give yourself a wolf whistle and strut out the door – you are not only feeling good but lookin’ good too and it doesn’t matter what you are wearing or how others perceive you and your style.
Someone once referred to my blog, Domestic Divinity, as a Fashion Blog and I nearly choked on the dumpling I was eating. Fashion Blog? Me? No way. I ‘run’ a Lifestyle blog which is basically me sharing tidbits of my very regular life which may include posts on Weddings, Outfits of The Day, Eating Out, Beauty Reviews and Babies. I don’t follow any plan on what to write and just write about what is relevant to me. Blogging has introduced me to some of my very good friends and it is incredible to have such a network on Twitter, Facebook, Blogger and Instagram.
Here’s our take on Mez’s gorgeous maternity style…
1. Hora Maxi Dress from Sportscraft ($41) // 2. Natasha Stone Necklace from Forever New ($24.99) // 3. OPI Indi-a Mood for Love from MBeautyLounge ($6.45) // 4. Kardashian Kollection Coco Woven Clutch from EverMe ($69.99) // 5. Tony Bianco Jiselle Flat in Nude ($89.95)
Do you love Mez’s pregnancy style as much as we do? What do you think of the newly renamed Shop Her Chic?
