…to buy maternity clothes.
(This is not an announcement – I am not pregnant!)
I’m 5’9″, so pants only look right if I get them extra long. Thus, I’ve worn highwaters through all three of my pregnancies. I hate feeling frumpy when I’m pregnant. So, my new policy is to buy cute maternity clothes whenever I find them.
In the past I have put something I liked back on the rack ’cause I was no where near a need for elastic waist bands, and didn’t want to think about wearing maternity clothes. But now, having endured a third pregnancy in frumpyness and highwater pants, and I’m not gonna do that again.
Now, of course, I shop almost exclusively at thrift stores, and I’m not anywhere near average, meaning it’s only a few times a year that I actually find something that fits my criteria. So I don’t have a huge closet full of cute maternity clothes. No, but I do have a new pair of Black pinstripe, Extra long, Gap Maternity dress pants in stretch cotton for $1, thanks to the local hole-in-the-wall thrift store and my Company Policy.
(I repeat, this is not an announcement!)
What about you? Do you buy clothes out of season (summer clothes in winter) or maternity clothes even when you’re not pregnant? What’s your latest, greatest thrift store find?
