So, I bought this dress approximately four seconds before I got pregnant. I ordered it from an Australian website which takes a while to ship things to the United States, and by the time it arrived, I was four weeks pregnant, had already gained a few pounds (yup, seriously — I gained two pounds before I’d even taken a pregnancy test) and it. did. not. fit.
I was bummed. I couldn’t return the dress because shipping something back to Australia is mind-numbingly expensive — like, two or three times the cost of the dress in the first place. So, I kept it. I stuck it in the back of my closet, tried not to feel bitter, and figured I’d pull it in a year or so when I could fit into it again.
And, eleven or so months later… I did!
Despite my long, long wait to finally wear this dress, I was super excited to finally pull it out. Even a year later, it’s obviously what I fell in love with when I bought it — the bold splashes of color, the flattering cut (very flattering, LOL!), and the simple, sexy shape. Just what this new mama needed!
And Rambo liked it too. I couldn’t resist including this shot!
