same dress, different way


 
I'm very slowly buildng a maternity wardrobe.
We have another embryo on ice, so hopefully
after this tacker arrives, we can add to the brood,
so I'll need a few dresses to get me through two
pregnancies.
 
This is one of the first pieces I purchased, from etsy.
I was searching for vintage maternity wear, although
I think this may have been '80s or even '90s. It was nice
and cheap and is fast becoming one of my go to dresses.
 
In my last post you would hav seen it with some pink
grossgrain ribbon tied under the bust. Today I added
a cream velvet ribbon with a vintage corsage pinned on.
 
Something crazy I've noticed is that all of a sudden I
want to wear huge shoes, which is the opposite to what I
expected to want to wear. I think perhaps because I feel
chunky and and fine shoes feel ridiculous, and also
I need to feel longer, and not womble-esque.
 
I am halfway through my pregnancy and although I
amd now sporting HUGE maternity knickers, all my
lovely tights still fit fine. Win!

  3. Wow!!!! I haven't checked in on your blog since you went on hiatus and gosh, what wonderful news :D

    You mentioned in your last post, the maternity wear market is really lacking in Australia and it's awful! However, I've seen quite a few discussions on PinupGirlClothing's FB page about maternity wear with ladies saying which PUG dresses work well during pregnancy and post pregnancy for things like breastfeeding. They have some really nice ones, hopefully that might help :)
