Fillyboo: Maternity Dreams
This week I am officially eighteen weeks pregnant and I'm still wearing clothes from before I was pregnant. Slowly, but surely though, I am having to move into maternity clothes. And you know what that means? Shopping! Sadly there aren't all that many affordable maternity shops and I don't want to spend a hundred dollars on a piece I'm only going to get to wear for a couple of months. Although it is very tempting because I have found some pretty cool websites in my endless search for stylish maternity fashion.
One of those sites is Fillyboo, a bohemian maternity shop full of hippie-esque dresses and things of the sort. I have spent a lot of time creeping around this site and drooling over everything that they have. The bad news about Fillyboo is that it is way out of my price range for maternity clothes. I have a baby on the way, guys! Lower your prices! But of course I will continue window shopping just because I like looking at the pretty dresses like the ones at the top of this post.
The Dream Catcher, which is the dress on the left, looks so comfortable and airy. If I had $69.82 to spend on something I will only be able to wear for a couple more months and then never again I would definitely buy this. Plus, it's so minimal you can do so many things with shoes and accessories! This dress could be dressed up or down for whatever occasion you need to be dressed for. It's out of stock in my size anyways. That's probably the only thing keeping me from splurging on it and being upset with myself a couple weeks from now.
The other two pieces are between $80-$135. The powder blue dress in the middle is cool and nearly worth the price because of the chic fringe-y tassels and the gypsy feel/aesthetic and the lilac dress on the right side is perfect for accessorizing however you want to also. If it was for a big event I would definitely get one of these! A baby shower, a wedding, a nice party, a brunch, something like that. I might be throwing one of my friends a baby shower in a couple of months and if I am I would totally match the colors to one of these dresses so I could match the whole party!
Is there a brand that you love right now that you can't afford? Is there any big event coming up in your life that you need to put together a really nice, stylish outfit for? And are you into the maternity style that I've been sharing with you guys?
