I love Nahla’s and Harlow’s–they’re so cute in them!!


I love it!…I just donated my embroidered dress to the Goodwill last month and I wish I could get it back

I want Nahla’s dress in my size!

Toya L. on

Nahla’s and Harlow’s dresses are too cute, I want one of each. : )

Kelly on

I looked all over that site and the web and can’t find that dress Kate Hudson is wearing! How can I find it?!!!

Kimber Christian on

I have always loved this style. I don’t know how Kate Hudson can walk in those heels! I couldn’t and I’m not even pregnant!

Catca on

I love Nahla’s dress the best and think Harlow looks really cute. The first thing that struck me about the pics though was the pregnant woman in the middle is wearing a dress that’s shorter than the toddler set! Kate’s legs look fabulous! It’s very brave to wear a dress that short and that flouncy though. How on earth does she keep it from flying up and showing her undies in even the slightest breeze???

Miss Ann on

How about you don’t show outfits when the folks in the photos were born in two different centuries? The toddlers are always dressed cute.

NickyAngel on

I want Kate’s dress, it’s gorgeous

Valerie on

Kimber- I agree- actually the first thing that struck me was the heels- yikes… I would be so afraid to wear those while pregnant!

I can’t believe you posted a grown pregnant woman in comparison to two little girls for wearing the same style dress. Couldn’t you have at least shown a girl in school, or a girl that doesn’t need to take a nap still?

Kat on

If she is like me when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy, high heels were the only thing that was comfortable!

Love the dress, it might blow up – but when you are that preggers you don’t always care if it is comfy!

Doreen on

Just my opinion but it’s strange to post two lil girls and then Kate Hudson is in the middle. Very odd! Should post another pic of a lil girl instead of Kate.

Maggie on

I think it’s odd that people have an issue with the photos shown. It’s a fashion piece featuring a trend – embroidered dresses – that can be worn by moms, pregnant women, and kids. What’s the problem?

Jillian on

Maggie, I was going to say the same thing!
