I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Julie Allen, local mom and CEO/Owner of BUMPstyle Box.  It was like talking to an old friend, maybe it’s due to the fact that she’s a New Orleans native and there’s no such thing as a stranger in New Orleans. Along with her husband, Allen currently runs two successful maternity boutiques, Baby Bump Maternity, with a toddler in tow and is expecting her second child.  I asked Allen how BUMPstyle Box came to be, “After countless out of town customers commented on how much they loved the store and wished they had a boutique similar in their home town we came up with the idea to market to moms nation wide.”

With the success of Allen’s maternity boutiques and response from moms both near and far, Allen launched BUMPstyle Boxin January of 2014 and has gained national attention with its maternity styling service to your door. If anyone knows what expecting moms want and need in fashion and how to make a mom feel confident in her clothes during and after pregnancy, it’s Julie Allen!

Allen’s goal is to help moms feel their best during a beautiful time in their lives. The lack of fashionable maternity clothes for everyday wear, work attire and evening have been at the core of pregnant woman’s frustrations for decades.  Julie knew she would be filling a need for expecting moms; giving them options so they would not have to sacrifice their style simply during and after pregnancy.

“We have maternity clothes for every mom, every style and budget. Our personal stylists work closely with each of our clients through there style profile. We work to meet the needs of every mom whether their style is conservative, relaxed or chic and trendy. Some moms might find it difficult to define their fashion style, we can help them with that too.” {Julie Allen}

As an entrepreneur myself, I had to ask Julie Allen that all-encompassing question… “How do you do it all?”  Like most of us, she does her best to daily balance the hats of mom, wife and entrepreneur. Working from home and running her own business gives her the flexibility to stay home with her son. Once her little one arrives, you might find her with a toddler or baby in tow at one of her boutiques. However, she made it clear that she’s a mom first and business owner second.

“Our clients across the country are loving their maternity pieces through pregnancy and beyond. We don’t just take moms through their pregnancy, we cater to them after their pregnancy too. We help moms transition out of pregnancy wear and back into pre-pregnancy clothes.” {Julie Allen}

BUMPStyle Box strives to boost the confidence of their clients with fashionable clothing during and after pregnancy. Allen’s new service is one that every expecting mom will not only enjoy but find incredibly useful and even necessary! If your expecting and you need a go-to day to day outfit, work outfits, an outfit for an event, your baby shower or date nights… BUMPstyle Box  can fill your every fashion need before and after your bundle of joy arrives!
