Pinking Ahead! (and obsessed with this dress)

Okay, kitschy title, but seriously am obsessed with this dress. And brightening up my wardrobe. I wear a lot of black and neutrals running errands and working out, and at this stage in the pregnancy marathon, I'm not exactly having a SundayFunday at the beach getting tan. My skin is fairly pale (ok- pastey Elmer's glue white).  It's nice to wear color that pops and makes me feel pretty.

 If you're reading other blog posts, I don't think it's a big secret that I've been wearing spanx occasionally. But, yesterday, I went down a red carpet feeling perfectly fine NOT wearing any because of this dress material (comes in different colors, too- if you try the white, lemme know!). The textured stretchy dress works well with keeping certain things discreet. I played with my stepson (who insisted on being in the picture above!) at the MILK+BOOKIES event (like had a serious dance party, sat at a kids' table coloring, sat on a bean bag, etc.) and the dress remained comfortable. I think I'll buy it another color. oh and Ps- I am wearing the xs. It was a bit snug, but stayed in place. This may be a good dress to read reviews, but at this price and free shipping, I'm telling you it's worth a try. Plus, I read plenty of women are wearing them during "transitioning" from prenatal to postpartum and beyond. The fabric is such that it would work way after pregnancy, so  I'm pinking ahead. Ha! Again, lemme know if you give it a try!

pps- tried out a few makeup tricks I learned from the video I did with Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg: TUTORIAL HERE. The products are below. The Makeup Fix is so affordable and kept my makeup totally in place for hours. I loved Kate's nude lipstick; I layered it with a pink gloss that kept it natural and complimented the dress.
