Minimal Mama: Black Tie Maternity Style
Found this amazing black silk dress (on sale no less) at the seasonal Net a porter sale for a recent black tie event. The brand is Grace MMXII. I had never heard of it before but it's a new line by the founders of Frame Denim - and they secretly launched last season under the radar in London. Purchased it a few sizes up for my 33 weeks pregnant belly and had it expressed hemmed at a local dry cleaner and voila - channeling a little Rita Hayworth (my inspiration) or Bond Girl. Matching red nails and lips for my beauty with a simple chignon and kept everything else very simple. Hot husband in tux and bump were my best accessories anyway! I did manage to wear heels for the first time in AGES. Wasn't so bad and can't wait to start wearing them again post baby.
