Whiny Wednesday: Ruching is Our Friend

If you're expecting, no doubt one of the essential pieces in your wardrobe should be this ruched maternity tank dress by Isabella Oliver. Malin Ackerman wore the same dress (tons of expecting celebs wear it, duh) back in January with leggings and a moto jacket, and now Ali Landry wore it most recently with a lightweight blazer and a fun pair of strappy heels. It just goes to show you how versatile the dress really is, and how you can wear it pretty much throughout your entire pregnancy from season to season. It's $155, but since you can wear the entire pregnancy, what a deal, no?

It looks like one of those slinky dresses you could just live in, and let me tell you, ruching is one of a pregnant lady's best friends. It hides it all and makes it look so chic! (I like to use this trick on my swimsuits and I'm not even pregnant, ha!) I love how Ali used a pop of color on her heels and added a fun accessory like a tassel necklace (gotta love a good tassel, right?!). Ali's such a fashionable southern mama...I really just adore her to pieces. (Here's an interview I did with Ali, in case you missed it.)

So basically Isabella Oliver is one of the highest quality maternity lines on the planet, and I found when I was expecting little C. and comparison shopping that buying cheap, poor quality maternity wear was one of the worst things you could do. Not only is it a waste of money (just buy a few really nice pieces like this one!), but it never fits properly, which in turn does nothing for the pregnancy self-esteem. Obvi when you're pregnant, you wanna continue to look amazing, and you have to work a little harder (to be honest). So really by sticking to a few really great brands you know won't let you down, it just takes the guesswork out and voila! Hot mama coming through. ;)
