Little Black Dress: Day to Night {Maternity Style}


2 maternity style made in the USA baby bump my fair vanity

Today I'm celebrating three things: 1) entering my third trimester (home stretch!),  2) the versatility and general awesomeness of the little black dress, and 3) most importantly, the return of Victoria, sister-friend and photographer extraordinaire! She has been traveling for six weeks straight and I don't know how I survived without her. Three cheers for the return of Victoria Corkhill!

At 29 weeks along (translation: seven months prego), ain't no hidin' the bump! At this stage, I have found that stretchy-yet-substantial fabrics are my bestest friends, along with loose shift-style dresses.

A fellow preggers blogger, Haya from Good Good Gorgeous, remarked in a post that now, more than ever, she feels so much more comfortable wearing tight slinky dresses that really hug her curves, and I have to say I feel the same! I might never have worn something like this before, but for some reason, I feel more confident in silhouettes that really show my shape.

To transition this look from "day at the office" to" night on the town," all I did was lose the jacket, add heels and throw on an enamel cuff. You may recall these strappy little sandals from when I wore them in the middle of January because they are amazing secondhand Givenchy heels, that's why!

Last, but certainly not least, here are 15 little black dresses that are all made in the USA, priced from $58 for this shift by Wayf all the way up to $1,495 for a more conservative take on the dress I'm wearing by Lela Rose.
