Seen & Heard: New Maternity Shop

•• Maternity designer Rosie Pope is opening a shop at 55 Warren; the brand already has shops on the Upper East Side and in Santa Monica. UPDATE: I had no idea that she’s also a TV character! How exciting-ish! From Wikipedia: “Rosie Pope was born around 1980 in London, England. As the founder of the Rosie Pope Maternity couture maternity store/lifestyle brand and the MomPrep parent education studio/concierge service, she caters to expecting millionaire parents. Her hit Bravo reality show, Pregnant in Heels,”—a sequel to Sex in Thigh-High Boots?—”is what catapulted her to the spotlight.”
