Cos dress wth scarf and blazer

This is the last of the Brussels balcony photos, and good job too! I feel like all the outfits I post recently involve either this dress or the african wax print multicoloured ones. I guess I usually took photos only on a saturday and those were the most interesting and smartest dresses I had with me, so I always wore them to the parties.

I bought the ring at the stall next to our stitch and bitch one at the Belgian National day event, belonging to a craft market place. It’s made from fimo (I think polymer clay is the official name?) and it’s varnished. Unfortunately the varnish has come off a bit at the edges now, after wearing it almost every day. I’m wondering if I should try to revarnish it? what kind of varnish would I need?

Outfit stats:
* dress – cos * blazer – charity shop * scarf – swap * shoes – office, gift *

    I really like this look. The colour palette is a bit more muted than your usual, but I like the sage with brown and black. Also, jealous that you look good in Cos dresses. I went and tried on a bunch a few weeks ago, and they could not have looked more shapeless on me, but this really suits you (though obviously bebe’s trying to make an entrance). πŸ™‚

    Love the dress on you! I can see baby bump and it’s not small anymore! πŸ™‚
    It’s hard to judge how big baby bump is getting when you see it every day, but with time in between the photos you post, I can see it’s definitely growing outwards πŸ˜€

    As for the ring, probably some type of clear urethane, several layers with drying time and a tiny bit of sanding in between coats. Although at this stage of pregnancy, if you plan on using it, do it outside or somewhere really well aerated. That stuff is pretty potent.
    You could also try a clear lacquer (nail polish) but I find it tends to yellow with time.

    Btw if you look at photos of you pre-pregnancy and compare them to photos now, you’ll see you have a gorgeous glow about your skin and face. Always love that about pregnant mums. You look happy and baby makes you happy. πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend!
    Whatever you do, it’s quite pretty. Good choice of colours πŸ™‚

    How gorgeous do you look??
    Blooming beautiful, in more ways than one!

    I was into making things with polymer clay for a while, and the varnish I used was sold with that kind of stuff, but I suspect any varnish would work?? My problem with polymer clay is that it gets really brittle with age,but it’s so much fun to wrok with, and so easy.I really ought to get back into it!

    Was bummed to read of your stress in your last post; I so hope you can get a handle on that and enjoy your pregnancy! Do you have pre natal classes there? I would think that’s where you’ll meet and make friends with other ladies also having their first children The bloody professionals have done it all before and are so blase they forget how scary it must be the first time round!

    That ring is beautiful!

    Maybe just clear nail varnish? As a thrifty (read poor unemployed bum!) person, I would start there I think, if it was mine!
