So I have had my eye on this amazing dress for about 3 months. I found it through looking for bloggers for work and found the site Madeleine Maternity! I had had had to have this dress, but the further along I got, the less I felt like Scottifer would approve of such a large clothing purchase at the end of my pregnancy. I had planned to buy it anyway this week, when something amazing happened. I made a trip to Nordstrom Rack to look for something completely different. While I was checking out the dress rack, I spotted something striped, and of course cause I love all black and white stripes, I pulled it out. At first I am not going to lie, I was stunned. It was the dress in my hand. The Hells Kitchen dress I had been lusting over for months was right there in my hands, in my size, and get this...only $40 dollars. I felt panic set in as I felt the need to make the mad dash to the dressing room. I wasn't sure what was going on, but I knew I had to get this dress before someone pried it from my clutches (for some reason I was crazy paranoid and was convinced everyone in the store was eyeing to steal my dress). I tried it on, it fit like a dream, and I literally did a pregnant jig out of the store. I was the happiest clam in the world. I tried to explain the magnitude of how life changing finding this dress was to the Mr. I explained that this was obviously an act of the heavens and I was meant to have this dress, cause why else would it be at this Nordstrom Rack, on this day I went, and only be in my in my size an not a single other one in the store? He was not as inspired. But now my $90 I was saving up for the dress can be used for something else, like a post pregnancy, you finally aren't pregnant, you can wear normal clothes, splurge. Does it get much better? I submit it does not.
