I bought my first Tiffany Rose dress in 2009 when I was pregnant with Ben. I was looking for a dress for a friend’s wedding and stumbled across Tiffany Rose with the help of Google!
At the time it felt like a lot of money but I knew it was an investment piece. I had at least two occasions to wear it for in my first pregnancy and felt it was timeless enough to be able to wear it again in a future pregnancy. This point is proved by the fact that the dress is actually still available on the website (here) and is great value as I don’t think the price has actually increased!
I felt fabulous on the day and got so many compliments. I wore it again in my 2nd pregnancy and when I got rid of all my other maternity clothes, this remained hanging in my wardrobe as I couldn’t bear to part it with my favourite dress even though I knew I wouldn’t wear it again . . . How wrong could I be. Here we are with baby number 3 on the way! I haven’t had chance to wear my Colour Block dress again as it has been too warm. I have, however, had the perfect excuse to buy myself a brand new Tiffany Rose dress!!
With two weddings to go to this summer and a substantial bump to dress; the search began! Initially I fell in love with a dress from Isabella Oliver but when it came it just didn’t fit – it was lovely and long but did nothing to flatter my ample bosom etc, it certainly didn’t look like the expensive dress it was. Back to the drawing board and Tiffany Rose was calling my name. I was looking for a maxi dress as I was worried about swollen ankles (I’m prone to them and I’m wearing the dress in the height of summer!) so was beyond thrilled when I stumbled upon this little beauty: Maxi Cruise Jersey Dress It was *ahem* slightly out of budget but I justified it in that a) I just need to feel fabulous and at almost 29 weeks that’s always going to be tricky and b) the fact that it has magical nursing panel means I can wear if after Beak is born! Cost per wear is going down before my very eyes!!
