Pregnant? Not Pregnant?

Now wait a minute...


There will be no hyperventilating...No one is pregnant (that I know of anyway) I just wanted to introduce a term to you...a recent clothing term that Dina and I have coined to refer to that loose style...

You know the one?

When you rush into a store and fall immediately in love with some item of clothing...you try it on and say to yourself, "...self, this has no shape" then you poke your head out of a dressing room before venturing out, looking for your fashion consultant (ie. the person you bring with you in case of fashion emergencies) mosey out of the dressing room and ask the question quite matter of factly,

"does this make me look pregnant?"

Cause nobody wants to look pregnant, not even the pregnant women I know. Now, mostly Ms. Dina and I eye something and say out loud,

"pregnant? not pregnant?"
(saying this the right way means you say it a little fast, tilting your head to the one side, then the other)

The amount of lust after the object in question will then determine whether or not we will try it on. So, I got that sweet little brown cotton sleeveless top in Snap Snap the other day (this is the one I happened to be needing the turquoise Capri pants for?) It happens to have a wide gathered band at the top (that's what helps to keep it on) and then falls loose under the bust area...but, I liked it so much, that I gave it a try...plus, when you see so many people day after day walk in with almost the same top...and it looks cute on them? Well, you start to wonder...This time it worked out OK, and I do not look pregnant in the top...


Of course, those are smores we were eating at Deenies Bar-B-Q this weekend...we both decided if we continue to eat them, we're not going to be asking the question above...but the more horrible one:

"Fat? Not fat?"

Super cute post. Not so cute photo.

(note to self: take more than one photo to up the chances of getting a cuter shot, and no photos once Dina has reached her 2 beer limit. haha!)

On a more serious note...definitely NOT pregnant. Very cute top indeed!

I'm an odd one, I guess. I've actually bought tops from the maternity section before and LOVE them. I've never been pregnant and am relatively small for my age but they are free-flowing and they are comfortable and the design and style was just adorable and it was on sale. I love them! If I'm okay with it, who cares what everyone else thinks. That makes me wonder... where is that maternity top??? I'm off to find it now!

Thanks for the reminder!

xo,

Karen Beth :)

babies are cute and all, but looking like you are pregnant when you Most Certainly Are Not sucks ass.

Oh dear girls....
Too darn funny Miss NOT-pregnant!
Beer, bbq, s'mores and friends...
sounds like an endearing evening!

Wish we were there.... I'm up to my forehead in work shutting down the school year...

truly, my motto for the last two weeks is...
of all the things I've ever lost, I miss my mind the most....

Love to you both!

Love this post! I finally had to admit to myself that one of my favorite shirts on the hanger was looking quite maternity wear-ish. I ran it to the Salvation Army before I could talk myself out of getting rid of it.

Great post! You know, good planning on my part, isn't it? No one is even noticing that I AM pregnant due to all these new fashions. All the maternity tops look just like the regular ones!
