Brandy writes: I need help finding something to wear for NYE. See, I just had my first baby and nothing fits right. My pre-preggo clothes are tight @ maternity clothes, are well, maternity clothes. I'm looking for something semi-casual, it needs to be forgiving in the mid section, and I don't want to spend a lot bc this baby weight will go away (right?!?). I'd probably need XL or maybe 1X at this point. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
As a new mom (again), I give you snaps for getting out for NYE. Most new mommas can't find time to shower let alone take some time to be a free adult again. (Pointing finger at myself.) I wanted to give you a few options in terms of styling, whether it be fanciful, a little more casual or totally bitchin'. Personally, I'd go with "Going Rogue" simply because the skirt is so forgiving and you can wear all the pieces again together or separately. Enjoy your night out and have a cocktail for me. Please. For the love of sanity, please.

Magzilla here: When I'm not busy eating my way to the bottom of a ginger candy bag, I'm tweezing my eyebrows. I prefer the hard core body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and maternity/barrels of kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.
