Pop-Up for Maternity

After documenting the impressive selection at the Daffy's pop-up store, I decided to see if I could find any maternity love amongst all the cute dresses.



















Leopard print dress by Dex, $29.99. It's a large, and a good style for non-maternity, although the back view isn't great because of my now huge........

I'm not quite ready to do the full-on reveal, but I think this side view gives you an idea. Let's just say I've grown a good pedestal for the belly. Which is why, for most women who carry big, non-maternity will not hang well over the rear in your last months. Oh, OK, in your middle months too.

But this purple top ($16.99) surprised me. It looks perfectly fine from behind. A clerk picked it out for me, and I politely took it into the dressing room thinking "No way. I'm going to look like an enormous, purple, ruffle tree." I shall no longer inwardly scoff at salesclerks recommendations. At least not till I've got it on in the dressing room.

Not bad for tiered ruffles.

















You can visit the Daffy's pop-up store at One Seventh Avenue South, Monday through Saturday 11am-8pm, and Sunday noon-7pm. Don't forget that everything you see in the pop-up can be found in Daffy's stores. And here' s the official Apartment information. The pop-up store is open for the duration of the contest (till August 14th). Click on the flyer below to learn how to win a luxury, furnished apartment for $700 per month:

You guys are seriously too kind. And really good for a pregnant gal's ego! Lipstick, I'm pretty sure the cankles are just around the corner. I've still got about 2 1/2 mos. to go.

The ruffled top does not look bad!!! I would think it's a hard look to do with a wee belly... but it looks cute!

Also: how droolworthy is that apartment? About the size of my current place, but it has those TDF windows!!!
