Recently, Maria of Adelaide's Homesewn shared a gorgeous dressing gown that she couldn't stand to part with which inspired me to share a few things from my closet. You see, at some point around 30 weeks I had a pregnancy-induced meltdown in which I wanted to burn every Liz Lang maternity tank in my closet, but alas I would have no clothes that fit me if I did that. I missed my vintage desperately so I consoled myself with shopping for some post-maternity clothes. I decided to treat myself!
Now the tricky part of this whole treating myself endeavor is that I have no clue if or when I'll actually be able to wear any of these lovelies. Who can predict how pregnancy will change the shape and design of your body? But hopefully sooner rather than later these will appear on me and in some outfit posts. Fingers crossed, y'all.
Don't tell the other finds, but this one is my favorite. Hello, 1960s gorgeousness! Those colors, that pattern, the cut! It measures a bit larger than my old size, so maybe!
This is a Swirl dress which were these awesome wrap dresses which were typically used as house dresses. Swirls tend to be very popular now and you can tell why! They tend to have lovely prints and are easy to wear. Since it's adjustable (it closes with the belt) I'm guessing this one will be a win!
This lovely dress is by Jeanette Alexander. I love the print! And the cut of the dress! But I'm not sure if this will work since this cut has never been really flattering on me before. Having slightly wider hips is always a bit awkward with these.
My husband cringed when he saw this and told me it looked "too vintage." Whatever. It's stunning. It's one of the few reasons I won't mind when it becomes bitterly cold here for 8 months of the year.
And finally, this 1970s wrap skirt. Wrap = flexible fit right? One of my favorite things about this skirt, you know beyond the obvious, is that someone added little pieces of velcro down the front. Clearly at some point this skirt was responsible for an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
