Black with white all over

Giving Grey the side eye. I'm already a mom...
thrifted dress - $5 | Target nursing cami - $26 (similar) | secondhand belt - $6 (similar) | J. Renee booties - $103 | Total = $140

I thrifted this dress last year but never wore it until now. It was like XXXL so I had to do some major taking in on the sides...then I couldn't fit into it because the fabric has no give. I redid the sides to give me and my booty a little wiggle room and added an elastic to the inside of the waist line to make it look more fitted. The end result still looked weird on me so it just hung in the back of my closet....until now.

This dress is the perfect nursing dress so I'm pretty much set for life. I guess there are a few advantages to having a bigger bust and a little muffin top because it fits perfectly now. I'd also like to give a shout out to Lipo in a Box. Tummy control FTW.
