retro maternity fashion via Va-Voom Vintage

I'm 37 weeks pregnant now and today's outfit is one of the last of my dresses that still fits and is comfy to wear. It's a vintage striped sun dress with little clear buttons on the straps. I picked it up at an estate sale last summer and I really love it, especially during St. Louis' 100 degree summer days. I think I may replace the clear buttons with red or blue ones and add some fun rick-rack or other trim to it at a later date.

My little lobster pin is one of my favorite, new silly accessories. I found him at an antique mall for $1. The dish that he was sitting in had a matching lobster pin in it so I bought them both. My little "love lobsters" are named Sally and Pete.

It's been a long time since I've had the energy and desire to do something fun with my hair so today, I did some asymmetrical victory rolls. I had some fly-aways here and there but hey, I'm out of practice! I'm also in the process of crocheting all new snoods for myself. I love the way a handmade snood stays put without a bazillion pins and it doesn't sag over time like these yucky cheap ones. Waiting for Rhys to arrive has given me a LOT of time to keep my hands busy with my hook and yarn.

Baby Update: yesterday afternoon, I went to the hospital with contractions. They were regular and going pretty good for about 2 hours when they suddenly stopped! After an exam and being hooked up to the monitors for a few hours, they sent me home. Aww, bummer! Oh, well- it just means that my little bun gets to bake a bit longer! :)
