Here I am 36 weeks pregnant for the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight Field of Honor event to premiere the Honor Flight documentary (which we broke the world record for for largest movie premiere). I love, love, loved making this 1940s maternity pinafore and it was so cool and comfy.http://s471.photobucket.com/user/ladymalai/media/Field%20of%20Honor/SAM_2432.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3
OMG! You look SO amazing :D I miss that pregnancy glow.
Thank you! :) It's probably my favorite piece of maternity wear and I felt amazing in it. The day after was when the beginning of the began. What a difference 24 hours makes.
I loved all of your maternity outfits! I just adore how you always looked so cute and put together. I'm planning on borrowing heavily from your style when I start having kids!
Stephanie! YES! I basically went on Etsy and typed in "vintage maternity" every so often and ended up with the pieces you see. A lot of the piece only cost me 20$! The most expensive was the jacket I got from Butch Wax vintage, that I didn't include since I only wore it postpartum. http://www.technicolorcutie.com/2012/10/birthdays-for-everyone.html
I've noticed a lot of vintage maternity patterns super cheap on etsy. I have a few saved on my favorites but I'm afraid my poor hubby would freak a bit if I bought any.
These are all such great outfits. I personally hate the modern pregnancy look of wrapping yourself in a super tight top. It looks really weird and kinda gross. I get it you're pregnant and proud.Your outfits are classy and very flattering. My mom wore a lot of outfits like this too.
There is a time and place for those tighter outfits. Like lazing about the house and working out. I am so shy that I never really wore anything too tight until then end. People are so amazingly rude to pregnant women. I had someone yell at me from across the grocery store "Oh my God! You're going to give birth any day." Which was true, but he didn't have to broadcast it!!
I agree with you. Although I tend to hang out in my comfy jammies if I don't need to go out of the house. Especially in the winter months when it gets stays under 38F.I like it but I need more warm loungeware.
I swear you are the most stylish vintage momma I've seen. WONDERFUL!
Thank-you so much BVV! <3 That means a lot coming from such a stylish woman like yourself :)
You were really beautiful and stylish pregnant woman!!!!!!I sometimes ask myself what I would wear if I was pregnant... not easy to find nice winter maternity clothes.
Thank you Laurence :) Well, I have a ton of patterns. They do have long sleeve maternity ensembles. I only sew for friends, so I'd love to make you some things.
My goodness, Missy! These pictures are all so lovely. You had to be the most stylish pregnant lady ever! I must admit it has been amazing following your blog and seeing all these changes happening over the last year. xxx
You are beyond gorgeous and endlessly stylish in each of these wonderful photos, dear gal. The multitude of florals featured throughout really makes me think of how a new life was blooming inside of you as you wore them. ♥ Jessica
<3 I look back on this post and think "wow, my skin looked so GOOD!". I really felt healthy and I guess my wardrobe radiated it :)
So I know I'm late to this post, but holy cow I don't think I've ever seen someone look so stunning and fashionable and expecting like you. That third to last picture is beautiful!
Thank-you Julia! I wanted to take the time to embrace my new body! It was totally worth it.
