I bought this dress at H&M two years ago for a whopping $8 to wear to a Festivus for the Restivus party my exhusband I used to throw. I had a significantly harder time then keeping it to stay up then! This dress totally worked as a prego dress because the waist hem is just under my chest.
My baby bump made the dress a bit shorter than I would have thought decent so I added the black tights. I originally went after my footed tights and was a bit disappointed when I couldn't find them but these ended up being absolutely perfect! I think my feet showing complimented my shoulders being bare.
I was given this absolutely gorgeous wrap from a couple who traveled to Israel last Christmas. It's big enough to act as a shawl but light enough to wear as a scarf. It's literally one of my top 10 favorite accessories!
And the shoes? Why, they're MAGNIFICENT, you say? Oh how NICE of you to notice! My lover bought them because he's most amazing. They are BCBG and I got them on sale last week at Ross... only the bestest store in the whole wide world.
This necklace is so very special to me. Brett's mother was in a beauty pageant in the 70's and WON, of course! The pendant she was given says "The Miss America Pageant" and on the back is inscribed "Miss Walhalla Pageant". I can't believe he gave it to me... the nostalgia and rarity and memory surrounding it is so spectacular. I've added his mothers crucifix that she wore daily to the chain... even though it seemed an odd thing to do. Well anyway... the chain seemed too thin to wear solo so I wrapped it around a set of solid black pearls I have and voila!
