More to come soon with new projects and new ideas and new fun stuff!

 

Stay tuned for new updates!  Thank you for following me and (maybe?) hanging around for a bit?!

Preggo Gets a Mini-Makeover

Oh, thank you Baby Jesus for maternity leggings.

True to the tradition..First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage.  I am 4 months pregnant with a little girl!  Having a fine time!  Especially now that I have been able to move from my “boy fit/lazy day/couch sitting jeans” that were getting too tight (egads) into my first pair of maternity leggings.

Someone tell me WHY we torture our non-pregnant bodies with non-maternity leggings (or any non-maternity pants, really..Yes, I said that and went there).  They changed my life.  And, I can’t say that too many times.  It feels great to let it all hang out, while I am actually letting it all hang in.  Trans..for..ma..tive.  I no longer feel I could snap my husbands head off at the neck simply because my pants are too tight.

*Watch now, he’ll come home with 14 pairs of maternity leggings.

It’s all in the plan.  Mwahahaha.

So, clearly, because it’s me.. I have been slightly obsessed with what I am going to wear while I grow and contort and bust out (let’s be honest, there is lots of busting out).   And, I am happy to report that there are actual clothes for pregs that aren’t horrific and totally expensive.  Top Shop, H&M, Old Navy, ASOS…  And, also happy to report that not everything is empire waist.  YAY!

Check this out:

From ASOS

These from H&M look cute too..  How cute and soft..

I went ahead and got this tee-shirt the other day.  Super soft and comfy and not offensively maternity frump:

Anyway, not SO SO bad.  Right?  Typically, I am not someone that likes to wear body-con stuff, but I am finding that now that I am pregnant, the tighter stuff looks better (gasp!).  I naively thought, a preggo could just wear larger sizes in some things and be ok and that is just not the case at all.  I mean, stuff hangs over your belly and you end up just looking sloppy, kinda like that fat guy at the County Fair eating a turkey leg.  You know the one, the guy that has no idea his stomach is hanging out the bottom of his shirt.

I am having so much fun with this and learning so much with every inch.  Can’t wait to apply all of this info to the work I do with my clients!  Life – ain’t it fun?!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit Post: What I Wore To A Work Holiday Party

I have ADD.  So, I do a couple of things for work.

1) Have my real job as an event planner for a large company
2) My own business as a wardrobe consultant  (see here)
3) And, I sometimes help my friend Liz at the The Nouveau Romantics set up weddings!

Big, fabulous, gorgeous weddingzzzzz (!!).  Sound familiar?  It’s because they did my wedding a few months back..Insert giant grin. Anyway, when I get to work with Liz, I get to work with a large group of super talented, creative, fun, outgoing, hardworking people.  This was a party at her house/studio for 14 of our work friends.  We had lots of amazing food, fun conversation and bottles of wine disguised as fancy punch drinks.  All these folks are great cooks, have fab style and love to have fun.  It was a great time…

This is what I wore:

Dress is a vintage, black and white polka dot, shirt dress that I purchased off of Ebay.  Vintage coat is a 3/4 bell sleeved “carpet” coat that is as soft as a velvet and survived a pipe breaking in the closet of my old apartment.  I am wearing textured (although you can’t see it here) black tights, and Dolce Vida “Pilar” black suede booties from last year.  About the best thing I bought last year – I wear them all the time. I found some on Amazon…Check it.  Don’t wreck it.

Don’t be afraid of buying clothes off of Ebay.  Just get some good measurements of yourself and do it.  Best vintage on there, and I mean, THE BEST.  Here are some tips to shopping on Ebay etc from an older post.

Thanks for following me!XOXOX
