When I was pregnant with the twins in the summer 2008 I made sure I had a vast collection of retro-like dresses to get me through. That's not to say that I didn't have a pile of uglies that I wore on the days where I couldn't bear to get off of the couch, but in general I think I donned some winners! This one below was from Kohls and was not a maternity dress, but fit so well! It reminds me of the dress Appollonia Vitelli wore when she took the walk with Michael Corleone (and the entire town) on the Godfather; which of course I can not find a photograph of on the entire web-tube, so you will have to take my word for it! This dress even has the white yolk feature on the back shoulders- it is incredible! Luckily it is in great condition still, so in a month or two I should be able to wear it!

Another new item I've bought for this pregnancy is from everybody's favorite, Target. I generally do not wear pants as a rule, but on the days where I am chasing the boys everywhere, I opt for super dark jeans, generally cuffed and super high water. I have no idea why I feel the need to roll them so high, it's just a habit! I love to wear knee length shift type dresses over cropped jeans. I have this black dress from Old Navy circa 2009, which has a bit of stretch to it, that I usually wear over jeans so hopefully I can get a few more wears out of it.

So what I really need are shirts. I hate to wear t-shirts and smock type shirts. This is a problem because 99% of maternity wear are this style. I am open to website suggestions for cute wrap style shirts and striped sailor type tops. I am loving this one from Old Navy: Maternity Striped Boat-Neck Tees.
