Watch out, Threadsence! I may live in this dress!

Now this is what I'm talking about! Here's a perfect example of a cute, non-maternity dress that works for both pregnancy and for those who, um, aren't knocked up:
flipsdate: 21 July 2010
occasion: birthing class
dress: courtesy of Threadsence
necklace: courtesy of Accessorize
old flip flops: Macy's

I did not think it was possible, but dear Jen assured me that it was: I outgrew my maternity shorts, and I still have three more months to go! WHAT THE WHAT?! That's one reason why I was so thankful to get this dress in the mail yesterday courtesy of the sweet people over at Threadsence. I love it. It's comfortable, the straps are removable and can be uncrossed in the back, and it's a size large. This dress is going to get so much mileage that Progressive Auto Insurance is going to want to take out a policy on it!

By the way, I've been thinking a lot about what you may think of "courtesy of" items on self-style blogs. I am acutely aware that out of my last seven outfits, six have had a "courtesy of" or a gift item incorporated. I did want to address that, but I didn't want to do that unless that sort of thing matters to you or piques your curiosity at all.
