The Pregnant LBD

Last night I went to the annual Summit Music Festival to watch my little sister and orchestra play. The sounds from the string instruments filled the room as world renowned violinists Aaron Rosand and the crowed seemed to float on air. The entire orchestra was not only synchronized in sound but also in their all black attire which reminded me of a black velvet rope. Then what I would say was a very important question crossed my mind. "I wonder if my LBD still fits?" You see, I've refused to buy any maternity clothes during my pregnancy because I think I'm the exception and I won't gain a lot of weight lol. And truth be told, I haven't! I'm 30 weeks and have gained 19 pounds yaay me! Needless to say when I got home in the wee hours of the morning, I tried on my favorite LBD and it was snug but still fit. Coco Chanel taught the world that every girl needs a LBD in her closet at all times. And just because we're pregnant doesn't mean we are exempt. So I decided to surf the web in search of mommies-to-be that are adhering to this universal law.
