Maternity look 26 weeks/Designer Networking Event

Friday, June 1, 2012

When Calypso Home Brentwood hosted a designer networking event, in association with Turquoise LA
I knew it was going to be a fabulous night, I just didn't know what I was going to wear for it!
With the arrival of this little man rapidly approaching, it's become exceedingly difficult to dress the way I want to. Thinking outside the box and acting creatively is a must. There are also very few maternity options (in my opinion, anyway) that don't suck. (One exception that I will wear to another event this weekend, I can't wait to share!)
Anyway, I usually prefer to take something non-maternity and make it work with the bump in my own way. In this case, Calypso St. Barth worked again. This dress, (currently unavailable online, but similar here) did the trick just fine.
I only needed to belt the waist (is it still considered a waist?) and throw on my fave tuxedo blazer as of late, and I felt (almost) myself. 
The heels, however, had t-minus 4 hours and they were kaput. 
The delightful company, and amazing eye candy, topped it off as a night to remember. 
Fashion, and design... what could be better? 
Happy weekend, loves. xx
