Blake's Wardrobe Whirlwind

‘I had to cram in fittings wherever I could,’ she tells PEOPLE

Why did you decide to wear so many looks on this tour?

Once upon a time this was supposed to be a two-week press trip. But then life happened, and I had a baby. So I changed the timeline, just not the wardrobe. I selected easily over 500 looks, and I wound up calling in 256 outfits.

Wow! How did you narrow them down without a stylist?

I started planning back in February. And in the end I couldn’t even do all of it. My sister [Robyn, 43] is the same size as I am, so I said to her, “Okay, you’re my fit model now! You try on half, and I’ll try on half. Go!” If it looked good on her, I just assumed it would look good on me.

Where did you get ready between appearances?

In the green room, in the car, in a ladies’ room. The hair seems to be happening in the car a lot. My hairstylist Rod Ortega is a magician in a car!

Has motherhood affected your style? Do you worry about breast-feeding?

With all the wardrobe changes, one thing I hadn’t accounted for was that I didn’t have time to pump. So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day. I walked out onstage for one appearance in an outfit that had fit perfectly when I tried it on many hours earlier, but by the time it got on me, I thought, “Oh, no! This isn’t going to cover them up at all!” I was very worried about a wardrobe malfunction.
