I wore this maxi dress when we invited a couple families over to our house for a Labor Day end-of-summer BBQ. Super casual--I paired it with some nude flat sandals. My first maxi dress!
I first found out about this dress when one of my (non-pregnant) friends wore it to her kid's birthday party. I've been looking for a maxi dress for a while and it looked just perfect--I love the print and the turquoise blue with cobalt trim color and the interesting keyhole neckline and how it has a substantial top--no spaghetti straps!
My friend looked great in it. She told me it was from Macy's. This was my first time copying someone IRL, but I couldn't resist. Unfortunately it wasn't being sold online anymore. I tracked it down on eBay--it's INC. The listing said new with tags, but it had kind of a Febreeze-ish heavy laundry detergent smell (what is it with these eBay purchases? I always buy NWT but they still smell like fragrance). I washed it and aired it out and the smell is fading somewhat, but it still peeves me a little. I guess I have to avoid eBay and stick to store purchases to avoid the smell problem.
Anyways, it was fun to wear an empire-waisted tummy-enhancing maxi dress for a change. What do you think of this maxi dress (if you don't have a poison eye for all maxis)? OK for MOTG, or resortwear only? BTW, recently I had dinner with another pregnant mom (8 months) and she was wearing this exact style of INC dress but in another color/pattern. So it's a great maternity dress, even though it's not maternity!
