Not to mention... sexy?!
Y'all - this never happens to me. I neverevereverever look at pictures and think,
wow I looked so beautiful!
But this dress gave me such an instant boost of confidence... made me truly feel like my self-professed idol for this pregnancy, Sofia herself,
I guess that only helped "the glow" do its thang!
I have never gotten so many compliments. Seriously. Here I was at Neiman Freaking Marcus, wearing Target earrings and pumps I bought on super clearance at Nordstrom Rack for $7 (I kid you not)... and ladies wearing $3000 outfits were stopping me to tell me I looked awesome.
That feels good even not pregnant...but when you are preggas? I had to fight back tears of joy.
Also - I had never liked the ruched style on myself before. I realized when I got this dress that you can't do ruched on the cheap. The difference of a high-quality (thick and double-layered) jersey fabric, combined with the attention to details such as the perfect length and shape (just right to make you feel sexy but not hoochie lol) - are worth every last penny. Especially if you are self-conscious like me.
