A Very Thrifty Holiday: The Perfect Christmas Dress

Pea In a Pod Maternity dress: thrift $7
bracelets: Forever 21 $5 
clutch: thrift $3
Forever 21 booties: thrift $4
Total Cost: $19

week: 33

Even though our church is pretty casual, I still always like to dress up for the Christmas Eve service. Knowing I was going to be about 9 months pregnant at Christmas time I wasn't sure I'd be able to find anything nice that fit. I was super excited to find this Pea in a Pod Maternity dress from the thrift store for only $7! It's just the perfect Christmas dress and it's basically a t-shirt dress so it's super comfy as well which is kind of top priority right now! It's also rare to thrift something with this much beading that is in perfect condition so this was a major Score! Who ever donated it to Goodwill probably did the same thing as me- wore it once for the holidays so it never had a chance to get worn out! 

These booties are a size and a half too big but they are one of only about 3 pairs of shoes that fit right now because my feet keep swelling up so bad! So sad! Everyday I just look at all my beautiful shoes and longingly dream of the day I will be able to wear them again! I better be able to wear them again!

  1. Beautiful dress and a major score! I had the same problem with swelling feet. I had to buy a pair of shoes one size larger and by the end of my pregnancy they were the only pair that fit me. After giving birth my feet swelled even more and when I went home, i had to wear my husbands shoes!!!! Six months later, all my favorite shoes fit me again :)

    1. Thanks Basia! So glad to hear your feet eventually went back to normal!

  2. You look great! I borrowed a dress from a co-worker to attend a concert only 2 weeks before having my son. I felt huge but the dress looked great so it made me feel better. You'll appreciate the dress so much when the time comes. :)

    1. Thanks girl! You are so right! It just makes you feel good to get dressed up no matter how huge you feel!

  3. A beautiful dress, you look very elegant and beautiful. Pregnancy looks great on you.
