Happiness is a new dress


Yeah, so, I’m not mad at Destination Maternity anymore because my new clothes arrived yesterday. One of the items I purchased is easily my new favorite dress.

Pretty damn cute, right?

Finding affordable maternity clothes that are cute is harder than you think. A few weeks ago I went to Pea in a Pod in Emeryville during my lunch break at work. Even the most basic item was almost $100. Outrageous price considering you are only going to wear it for a few months, after which it will sit in a bag in your closet until a friend has a birth control malfunction and you can pass it along to her.

My point is this dress really makes me really happy. Be prepared to see a lot of photos of me in the upcoming months wearing this dress.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. That dress is super cute! Chloe’s Closet on Cortland always has a small but well-edited section of maternity stuff. Since it’s secondhand it’s usually pretty affordable. Worth checking out.

  2. Nice dress!
    I still have maternity stuff you are welcome to– I just don’t know when we can connect to hand it over. But get in touch if you’re still interested.

  3. Hey Sonia,
    Did you know Forever 21 has a maternity line? No, I’m not punking you.

    I don’t know why they only have lounging basics, though.

    ASOS has a really cute maternity line!

    The ASOS maternity dresses are super cute and mostly under $100:

    In other news, this is a blog that I found through work that talks about maternity fashion:

    Some of the tips are good, but I have to disagree with other tips involving denim shorts.

    Here’s another blog:
