The only load of washing I will ever get excited about:

An amazing experience as I meet my daughter for the first time:

So many outfits, so little time:

Fashionable Foundations

Hello Kittens

Thank you all so much for the lovely well-wishes in relation to my last post! I was pleased to read that you are still interested in how I am going to move through this next exciting stage of my life whilst trying to remain somewhat stylish.

Let me tell you - it's been a bit of a challenge (but more of that later...)!

But first things first darlings. I am happy to report that I am embracing my changing shape and revelling in my newly acquired curves.

Now as every stylish gel knows, the secret to looking great and feeling comfortable is great foundation garments.

I've found the perfect solution to VPL during pregnancy. I give you:

Spanx Power Mama Panties! (click to make image larger)

No VPL under clingy jersey dresses and a special panel to allow your bump to grow.

You can purchase online here.

Now I admit, they're not particularly alluring. In fact, they are rather frumpy to look at, but that is the point. They are virtually invisible under your clothes and therefore perfect. It's not as if I am in any danger of a Bridget Jones moment of a new paramour discovering them whilst fumbling around during a passionate encounter...

However, I do have the appropriate solution for that kind of situation:

In the not-too distant past, pregnant women were not seen as glamorous - heaven forbid anyone consider them as sexual human beings (ponder the irony....)!

I give you maternity underwear for women who like to look good in their trousseau:

Hot Milk:

Likely to get any Valentine's heart racing...

My Unplanned Hiatus Explained.

Hello Kittens!

Happy New Year. I hope your festive season was full of laughter, love and happiness.

Now I know I've been a very naughty girl by neglecting this blog. I am sorry if you thought I had abandoned you, but, to be honest, there has been quite a lot going on in my world and you all deserve an explanation.

I've been hiding a little secret:

I am going to be a mamma!

At present, I am 18 weeks along. It has been a bit of a bumpy ride as this is not my first pregnancy since my wedding back in May last year, but we are now all happy and healthy and looking forward to a little bundle's arrival in early June of 2010.

So now you understand my lack of outfit posts - nothing in my vintage wardrobe quite fits anymore and alas, it may be a while til I regain some semblance of a waistline! While I have always loved the glamour of vintage, I am finding that this unfortunately didn’t extend to maternity wear styles of yesteryear!

So I put it to you, darlings - what would you like to see here on Vintage Verve in 2010?

I don't want to bore you with baby or pregnancy related things (there are so many other wonderful blogs out there that cover these topics), unless you are interested in how I am going to try and translate my personal style around my ever-expanding.... well..... my ever-expanding everything!!

Your comments and suggestions will all be read and taken into consideration so please do leave your thoughts in the comments section of this post.

xx VV
