Last Thursday night Rosie Pope hosted an event at Destination Maternity‘s NYC Flagship store to celebrate her maternity clothing line: Rosie Pope for Pea in the Pod™. Be Your Best Mom was on site at this event and it was packed! I was surrounded by lots of mommas! Hundreds of moms and moms to be came out to meet Rosie Pope, star of Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels, designer and expert on all things maternity.
The first 50 moms-to-be that arrived were given a Rosie Pope Maternity Diaper Clutch. The first 100 moms-to-be that arrived received a Destination Maternity giftcard with a mystery value up to $250.
Guests were treated to a selection of fine candy and mocktails provided by Dylan’s Candy Bar. As can be imagined the line for the candy was too long for this mom that has no sweet tooth, but the mocktails were incredible! Guests were able to shop the new collection as they indulged in this sweet treats!
Rosie brought business partner and husband Daron to the personal appearance held to celebrate Rosie Pope for A Pea in the Pod™, an exclusive capsule collection available at A Pea in the Pod® and Destination Maternity stores nationwide.
Rosie posed for photos, spoke with press and reached out to several guests that had been waiting to steal a moment with her. I was impressed at how she stopped for a moment talking to the press because she acknowledged several guest waiting in line to see her. She took photos with them and thanked everyone for coming. I had no idea that Rosie had actually worked a A Pea in the Pod during her career. Her pregnancy inspired her to create her collection for Pea in the Pod. She wanted to make versatile pieces that were not only stylish, but comfortable as well. Moms-to be can look good from day to night!
Here is something I learned about Rosie while having my photo taken with her: I had spent all day in Central Park with my boys before this event. I later realized that while I had brought a dress with me I forgot shoes! Since black converse sneakers and a pink weren’t going to cut it I just went in my shorts. I asked the photographer to just take the photo from the waist up. Rosie told me that when she films her show she wears a stylish top during the close up interviews, but she has sweatpants on below! She like to be comfortable when she works and has to take advantage when she can. She was a lovely person.
