I am 19 weeks pregnant today! We just announced our pregnancy on Facebook yesterday, and we had an overwhelmingly positive response despite the political implications (Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice) and controversy surrounding the way we announced it. We also posted the announcement on our health conspiracy blog, which is an appropriate platform for the message we are trying to get out. Scroll below to see the rest of the photos!
I think we’ve all seen enough cheesy, eyesore dresses online and at boutiques. For that reason, it’s enough for you to not come back to websites that only specialize in evening gowns. Sifting through the granny-like and boring selections, you can actually find some really dreamy (and modest) gowns. I was pretty impressed, for example, at what this website called Promtimes had. I decided to make a small collection of floor-length formal dresses perfect for spring!
wasn’t tempted to wear red shoes with these, because that would’ve totally been Dorothy from Wizard of Oz! I really couldn’t pass this dress up the minute I saw it. I love gingham, but I don’t have enough of it! I also like Peter Pan collars, but this is probably my only piece of clothing with it. I like wearing dresses like these all year long, because I know I can always layer them with something. It gets tough making room in my closet because of this! Anyone have this problem?
I just love big sweaters, don’t you? This is a vintage 80’s Liz Claiborne Sport (which I call “Rainbow Tron” because of the pattern) in a small size! I usually wear a medium (US 6-8) in today’s clothes. This, however, fits like a large, but it was designed to be loose—just like many of the clothes around the 80’s and 90’s. Though we still have clothing designed to be baggy nowadays, a lot of trendy girls seem to like to pair anything loose with something tight, like it’s some kind of requirement or must. I know it works well for the self-esteem to at least show off something, but it really doesn’t always have to be that way!
Whether you celebrate Halloween or not, you will most likely be invited to a dress up party. When you find yourself in that situation in the last minute and on a budget, where do you turn to?
You’ve already done Princess Jasmine in second grade, a witch regrettably sometime in middle school, an obscure anime character in high school, and a general steam punk chic sometime in college. Yet this year even with all the constraints of real life, you still want to look cool. You’re trying to stay away from attracting real life demons but still have fun. You still want to keep your private parts private. You still want to preserve your dignity while showing off your awesome creativity…
It’s been a few weeks since summer officially ended. If the NSA were to print out my search history, they’d find things like “plaid” and “cool sweater” in a lot of my Google search terms! Though I’m excited that Fall has begun, part of me still wishes summer was around.
