C-Section Undies: Hot. For Real.

C-Section Undies: Hot. For Real.

I realize that it took nine months for my body to complete its baby-making journey, so I really ought to be patient and give it nine months to recover. Especially after a c-section.  But patience has never been my strong suit and I want to wear cute undies again. Is...

A Band of Bamboo

By this pregnancy, number three, I’m pretty familiar with the plethora of maternity belly bands that allow we lucky pregnant women to continue wearing our regular shirts. Or, if you’re me, make the bizarrely short maternity shirts actually cover the top of...

C-Section Unmentionables Worth a Mention

Giving Cold  Shoulders the Cold Shoulder

Giving Cold Shoulders the Cold Shoulder

I admit (don’t kill me, urban fashionistas) that I mourned the day the pashmina went out of style. I loved the versatility of this great piece and was glad to tuck one into my bag to keep for unexpected forays into too-cold offices or airplane cabins. Last week,...
