Ever since I saw the S/S13 Louise Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week last February, I knew I had to adept the 60s look in some way. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be with a new super short bob with/without a fringe, big monochrome check patterns, or with something like a little black dresses. In any way it was going to be a challenge, because not only my body would change rapidly over the coming months of my pregnancy – back then you I was only 8 weeks pregnant – but also my face was going to get ’rounder’. Hence a very short bob wasn’t going to be the answer to my 60s craving. The big monochrome check patterns (yellow/white or black/white) look appealing, but the thought of a big bump in a big check make me almost run to the toilet again… Not the answer either. So I guess this dress gives me the 60s vibe I was looking for, plus it works very well with my baby-bump.
I’ve kept the 60s vibe even more alive by wearing this dress with nude flats, an absolute must-have for end of summer as well, and the cat-eye sunglasses. The oversized black bag makes sure that my look doesn’t get too sweet, as that would not really go with my personal style. I mean, you don’t see me wearing dresses very often, nor flats or any other kind of nude shoes, so I had to keep it close to me by adding something edgy.
I think this dress is going to transfer perfectly into my post-natal wardrobe, because even though it is originally designed as a maternity dress, the design is that good that when you are not having a huge bump, the fit is still good. Of course it will, at that point, all depend on what I have in mind regarding trends, but the fit won’t keep me away from wearing it!
