What should I wear?

Maternity Fashion

A closet full of clothing and still the question is...what should I wear today?

The fact that you are pregnant, increases your anxiety.

Follow these basic tips for buying maternity clothing and your 9 months of pregnancy will be stylish and affordable!

Maternity Fashion Tips

1. Try on clothes based on your pre-pregnancy clothing size.

2.  Invest in a good pair of black pants & a black skirt, they go with everything.

3.  Mix brights & neutrals in your wardrobe to avoid falling into a color  rut.

4.  Don’t buy everything at once.  As your belly expands, so may other areas of your body.

5.  Try on styles and colors you ordinarily wouldn’t wear.

6.  Invest in good supportive bras, but also wait to buy a few more after the baby is born as your cup size will probably change.

7. For those days that you’re tired of your wardrobe, jazz it up with accessories.

stilletto heels are the perfect accessory for the mother-to-be

The real question is, "Do you know who the father is?"

A camouflage field jacket complements any wardrobe, and is quite practical, as well.

Hey lady, figuring out who the father is and what to wear is just the start of your problem; you should get a new photographer.

Oh, I get it. You're one of those liberated types. You don't need a man in your life. You're just gonna see whomever you wanna see. And when Little Ms. Liberated is good and ready to start a family, she'll just leave the conjugation to the discretion of the local sperm bank technicians.

It's all about clothes with you, isn't it? Super-stylin' with a bun in the oven. Livin' in your own Reeducation Camp 6 liberated tramp world. Bet you're even planning to run for Tacoma City Council, aren't you?

Mofo is on a roll, watch out! :-)

Mofo is a very lonely and sad person. No worries, his imaginary friend 'god' is always there in times of existential dread.

Hey, hey- no line crossing there....

I want to see some of those handmade Vintage looking dresses in the window in a blog post.

I'm going to go be a wet-blanket here, but c'mon, if feedtacooma is supposed to be for everyone to use and benefit from equally, it's kind of lame hijacking someone's blog with comments that are simply for self-entertainment among you (us) regulars. Although Fredo did make an astute observation regarding the photo. I just think wider and more varied feedtacoma usage should be encouraged.

I'm surprised at the sexist remarks here.

FT is better than that.

by jenyum on 9/30/2011 @ 2:06pm
Yeah, as one of the few remaining posters here with two X chromosomes I didn't want to be the first/only person to say that.

by The Jinxmedic on 9/30/2011 @ 2:13pm
I was sincere about my camouflage field jacket comment. Such an outer garment is indeed both stylish and practical, and well suited for the mom-to-be.

by The Jinxmedic on 9/30/2011 @ 2:14pm
Oh, and FT really isn't better than that- this is just on a subject that you noticed... :-)

Urban camo - bricks, dirt and graffiti colored?

by The Jinxmedic on 9/30/2011 @ 3:12pm
No, regular woodland camo. If you want to go "Full Arafat", you can wear it with a Kafiyeh. No one will notice that you're pregnant!

Personal interpretations of virtual photographs are subject to intolerance.

two9seven...I'm pleased you've seen our window! There's 2 separate bzs. in the shop. I will let Chelsia Berry Designs know about your interest in the vintage clothing. Look for her blogs soon.
