Like I mentioned yesterday, I loved Maurices way back in middle school and high school. It was where I'd get my Esprit tote bags and my Paris Sport Club t-shirts... the coolest of the coolest gear down in Seymour, Indiana.
The store underwent some major changes in the last ten years and I'd venture to say that the inventory now lies somewhere between American Eagle and the Heritage 1981 line at F21. Prices are still remarkably affordable, and they even have animal jewelry at the Southpark Meadows store in south Austin:
The kind folks at Maurices invited me out to check out their Austin Rescues & Runways show, a fashion show benefiting the PAWS humane society and showcasing the latest Maurices fall fashions:
I wore my long green maxi dress and a bedroom jacket that was last seen here. I added an elephant as a final touch, and truthfully, this is the best dressed I've felt all pregnancy!
occasion: Maurices fashion show
dress: Old Navy
jacket/ robe: Savers
elephant necklace: Buffalo Exchange
flip flops: Macys
Maurices kindly gifted me with a $50 gift card, and in a couple weeks I'll show off what I got. In the meantime, I am pleased to announce that this is my last maternity outfit for a while! Why? Well because yesterday morning at 3:45 a.m. I went into labor and four hours later I had birthed a healthy baby boy! More on that in the next couple of days. Thanks to everyone who sent me sweet Tweets and kind Facebook messages. We haven't come up with a name, yet, but we'll let you know when we do!
