glamour mama

“glamour” is assurance. it is a kind of knowing that you are all right in every way, mentally and physically and in appearance, and that, whatever the occasion or the situation, you are equal to it.”
– marlene dietrich
it’s officially holiday season and the sparkly parties are just around the way!

this year, a few of my very dear girlfriends are oh-so-pregnant and were praying for an outfit or two that would make them feel just as glamorous as when they were sans enfant. is it possible? i had no idea.

after looking at these exquisite vogue australia photos of miranda kerr? yes! i know, she’s a former victoria’s secret model. but the ensembles they chose for her are not only gorgeous but flattering for mommies-to-be everywhere. the goddess silhouette in dreamy chiffon floats perfectly, draped silhouettes hide the sins we never want people to see and a little sparkle and shine is a marvelous distraction from the baby belly . 🙂
and in celebration of the ever so stylish mamas-to-be, i whipped up a champagne worthy ensemble for the holiday fetes this season. a little one-shoulder, a bit of leopard, a splash of red, some fierce shoes and some shimmer and shine.
