fun for me

I've never been a fashionista but I do like to look nice. Being preggo and 6'1 has left me wearing jeans and a few tops that still fit. I have a few maternity tops that are nice too. I hope to find a pair of actual maternity pants long enough for me at some point. I have been scouring the web and while I think I can find a pair of maternity jeans, so far no luck finding anything nicer than that. Who knows if I will fit back into my clothes when this is all said and done, I am guessing that at the very least things won't fit the same. So what's a girl to do? Live vicariously that's what! I was introduced to a website called Polyvore by my lovely sister in law and I am loving it. I spend a few minutes every few days designing outfits that make me feel good. It is really a form of expression and a way to dream a little about what it might be like to have a real sense of fashion that is unlimited by money or size. It is quite fun for me. Here are a few of the outfits I've designed....

1. A great basic black pant will see you a loong way - these have a 36" inseam"!

2. RG Maternity - carries up to 38" inseam!

Good luck to you, I know it is hard to feel cute when you're getting bigger. Also - you might look for cuffed maternity pants online and un-cuff and press the seams - that should work too. I am sure do matter what you do you will look beautiful!!

I have been pregnant LOTS of times and the final time I never wore maternity pants! I ordered a product called "Bella Band" and used my pre-preg jeans with it. I loved it and got LOTS of compliments on my stylish "maternity" clothing AND it was much more comfortable than maternity jeans!

Just a thought????
Love You
