Calling All Mamas To Be!

Are you ready for this, expectant mamas? I'm SO about to make your day. As in you're going to want to come through your computer screen and kiss me. Look what I just discovered (thanks to my BFF Stacy who shares my love and borderline obsession for Rent The Runway and sent me a link to its cute maternity-wearing internet cousin)...

Presenting RentMaternityWear.com, my pretties! It is going to change. your. life.

Here are the deets (straight from the website):

Rent a gorgeous, new, designer maternity dress direct from the top maternity fashion designers — such as Christian Siriano (winner of Project Runway) Maternal America, and Olian Maternity — for up to 70% less.

One-week maternity dress rental rates start at just $35, and our affordable maternity wear collection means you can enjoy the perfect maternity dress at every stage of your pregnancy — from ‘just beginning to show’ through ‘a few months after the baby arrives’ — for less than the price of one little black dress!

What got me salivating is that you can rent in one or two-week increments, rather than just for a few days. So if you have several social occasions in one week, you have one fabulous dress you can wear to all of them, rather than pay an insane amount for a dress you may never want to wear again. You can rent by price, by occasion, or by whatever strikes your fancy.

And what is striking mine is this little number, for an upcoming work event in April (though I hope my bump isn't quite that big just yet):

Also adoring this LBD with fun crochet trim:

But what I'm really dying to find is a maxi dress like this one, but that will fit my 5' 2" frame (maxis are always about 3" too long on me):

But maybe, just maybe, it might work if I wear my fab new kicks (a birthday gift to myself purchased on a recent trip to New Orleans). Don't you just LOVE them? Me too. :)

So go check it out, all my prego friends! But don't steal one of my favorites unless you live far, far away from Nashville. :)


  1. Those shoes are AMAZING! I swear I just online gawked at something SO SIMILAR! :)

  2. OMG. I love your blog. My name's Anna, I'm a stylist and visual merchandiser in LA. I'm 23 years old and moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. I've worked with such designers as Max Azria, Nicole Richie, and my idol Rachel Zoe. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
