Baby Shower Dress Options

A group of my friends from the South are throwing me a shower back "home." Now for the perfect dress. Should I wear the one I already have (I'm not sure it will still fit in a few weeks though--I'm already running out of "wrap") or go for a special new number? After the shower we are planning to try to make it to the Alabama Homecoming game so that is why there are a lot of crimson options here. I have to admit, I'm not very impressed with the selection of cute fall maternity dresses. Have any of you preggo preps seen anything better? I think the 1st two are my favorite.




T-Bags Maternity dress from Neiman Marcus for $118.00.

I'm a sucker for green, so I'd go with that one!

I have found that dresses are the most flattering (and easiest) thing for me to wear lately... Altough, the selection of good (and affordable) dresses is hard to find. A couple weeks ago I got 3 cute ones at Gap, but other than that I have not had much luck. Not that I am cheap or anything, but I have no idea how large I am going to get and it makes me nervous to spend $$$$ on a dress that might only work for a month. Oh well.... the joys of pregnancy. Too bad we dont live closer - we could share!

My favorite one you posted was the first dark red one - the one that had the knot wrap right at the chest.

I looove the green :) and the houndstooth :)

Milltini said...

That's a tough one...but I think I like the first two as well. Plus, you'll definitely wear them again!

This is tough! If you want to wear the dress you have but are nervous about it fitting, maybe you could buy your #1 choice and then return it if you don't need it. That way you aren't stuck at home without at a dress either way.

I hope you have a great weekend!

I love love love the houndstooth one! It would be perfect for Homecoming! I'll be in town for the game too so I'll be looking out for you and your group of friends!

I say buy a new dress - one can never have enough, right?

I adore both the Milly and the green turtleneck dress in particular, but all of your picks are cute.

Have a great weekend!

Even though I'm an Auburn fan I think your Alabama pals with be totally impressed if you show up in the houndstooth dress! Throw on a crimson necklace and you'll look fab!

love the green!

Gracie Beth said...

I love the milly dress and the green dress!

Nomers said...

Either the first or the last deep red dresses. Although I do like the dress you already have, but I understand the fact that it may not fit.

GrannySmithGreen said...

My vote is for the red dress or the hounds-tooth. You are trying to pull for the Tide that weekend. The red may be the most versatile. They all are very cute!

(Check the clearance racks in the back of Motherhood--they are business partners with Pea in a Pod, and Mimi Maternity. They sometimes have their items on clearance!)

Kappa Prep said...

I vote for the T-Bags or the houndstooth dress. Both are great options for fall!

Molly's Mom said...

My favs are the Milly dress and the Red Olian one from Baby Center!
Have fun!!

Pink Flamingo said...

All your picks are super cute. I really like the second Milly dress, as well as the green turtleneck dress. You really can't go wrong with any of the dresses. :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Barefoot in the Park said...

linda said...

I'm sure you will look glowing and fabulous in any of your picks- love the first two especially, but all are lovely!

Jennifer (mom of four) said...

Love the Houndstooth! Great for AL homecoming ..a little touch of the Bear!

Just found your blog. I am from AL and miss the South so much. I am in Missouri now and they call that the south of course they have never been to AL!

Have fun at your shower!

I like the Milly or the Sasha dress.

Mind Your Manors said...

I like the T-bags!!! I love the green, but afraid that would be one of those dresses that doesn;t look that great once you get it!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

I really like the last one...the Maternal American red.

hGb said...

The Olian Green dress reminds me of something from "Church and State". I think it is so classic and gorgeous! I love it. Im not prenant but I want that dress! haha

Carolina Mama said...

Gee these are the cutest dresses. You'll look great in any of them.

Lori said...

I like the Milly one, but I would go for the houndstooth one, very cute!

Prissy Southern Prep said...

I love the green one, or the houndstooth. But the green is gorgeous!
