Gloss Magazine

I was flipping through the latest issue of Gloss [a Houston Chronicle publication] over the weekend when I can across a section called ‘WishList.’

As I perused the pages following, I took in all the glamorous products and accessories featured in this month’s issue. After reading every caption in the section, and making little notes on which websites I’d like to visit later on, I decided to make my own wish list. Once I got home, I hopped on the internet, and compiled a list of things that would suit my fancy.

I love this Nicole Miller strapless tuxedo dress. It’s sexy, with just a hint of understated authority. Fits my personality, if I do say so myself.

 Addison End Table This Addison End Table from Z Gallerie would look great in my great room. [I love Z Gallerie – I’m there every chance I get, whether I’m shopping for clients or myself.]

Since I started developing the “bump” [I’m now a little over four months pregnant, soJapanese Weekend Skirt this ought to make more since], I’ve found Nine Maternity to be a godsend. I couldn’t stand the thought of wearing oversized bags as an excuse for maternity clothes, and this store has some great selections. One the brand they carry, Japanese Weekend, has a great line of maternity clothing that is to die for. I especially like this skirt. 

Michael Stars Micro Jersey KimonoAnother brand Nine Maternity carries is Michael Stars. Although he doesn’t make maternity clothing exclusively, I do love his “maternitees.” He has a way of draping the tops perfectly, and the line is based on a trimester-based pregnancy calendar. Whether you’ve got a bomb in the oven [as I lovingly call my unborn child], or not, go check out Michael Stars and all of the retailers that I’ve mentioned here and tell me what you think.

P.S. The Thanksgiving Dinner turned out to be a blast. Everyone said that the food was great [I think they’re just trying to make me feel good], and everyone had a good time. We ended up watching movies and drinking "Lovemakers" – a blend of grape, pineapple, and orange juice with vodka. It’s an old mix that I remembered from my days in college.
