I never really write about shopping anymore, though I continue to do it. Dressing my new post-pregnancy body continues to be difficult – this doesn’t mean my body is better or worse than before, just different. My years of experience knowing what something on a hanger would look like on my body are now kind of useless. And excuse my over-editing-to-compensate-for-bad-photography. Anyway,
Here’s what you can get at Saver’s on Memorial day for $90. If you get there early like I did, and leave your baby at home, that is.
