I bought this dress on Etsy when I found out I was pregnant. At the time, I thought the empire waist would sort of hide my belly when I started to show. Wow, was I wrong. This dress completely makes me look pregnant. I am OK with that now since everyone knows my good news. I wore this work hoping to somehow bring on Spring. It didn't work. It was still about 48 degrees outside and cloudy. So, I had to wear my boots with it.
