I am so grateful for all the fashion advice and comments below.
It's like having a dressing room packed with your best, most honest girlfriends!
Can you believe I found 2 plain maternity wedding gowns at the thrift store? Can you dye a synthetic fabric, anyway?
I also hit Once Upon A Child's maternity clearance rack. This $1 shirt plus $1 DNKY trousers make a cheap outfit for everyday.
My plan: gather more formal options, grit my teeth, and put them to the sounding board sometime next week.
