Shop the Look: Baby Shower Dress

Let’s celebrate #humpday with some maternity fashion! I’ve had a lot of you ask about the lace dress I wore to my baby shower, so I wanted to share where you can shop the look. The specific dress I wore was created by a friend of mine! We wanted to make something special for the shower, so we sourced the lace from MOOD Fabrics. The material has a lot of stretch to it, so it will continue to hug my body as I grow and change. The dress is made solely of this lace, so if you have a friend or tailor who’s savvy with a sewing machine, design something similar! Just add a nude slip underneath.

For those of you wanting to purchase something similar, I searched online for the best dress options. Below you’ll find a ton of my favorites — both maternity and non-maternity. If you’re expecting and love a piece on the non-maternity list, I’d order the dress two sizes up (if you’re normally a size 4, order an 8), and have a tailor make any adjustments. If you love something on the maternity side, order your normal size.

As for the headpiece, I had eyed this jeweled headband on Twigs and Honey, and knew it would be perfect for the shower! It made me feel oh-so-special! Wander around the designer’s site — it’s filled with beautiful pieces for showers, weddings… etc.

PS. a full photo diary from the shower will come later… we’re first sharing a peek with HarpersBazaar.com, and will share every detail here after!
