A Pea in the Pod: Holiday Party Dress

As the temperature drops and decorations begin to pop up everywhere we go, it can only mean that the holiday season is upon us. With the holiday season comes festive gatherings and parties with your closest family and friends.

Many of the parties that I will be attending this holiday season require a fabulous holiday dress. But, as I've rummaged through my closet looking for something that I thought I might be able to squeeze into, I've been quickly disappointed when nothing will zip up over my stomach. At this stage in my pregnancy, I feel like I'm beginning to resemble jolly old St. Nicholas more than anything else.

Lucky for me, I won't have to attend the holiday parties looking or feeling anything like Santa Claus. A Pea in the Pod, one of my favorite maternity stores, offers a great selection of dresses fit for the holiday season. Whether you are going to a casual dinner party or a formal holiday gathering, A Pea in the Pod carries a dress for the occasion.

I had the chance to select one of my favorites from their current collection, and while the choice was a difficult one, I found a dress that not only flattered by growing belly, it was perfectly embellished with beads that are perfect for the holiday season.


The light grey sleeveless embellished maternity dress is a great light weight dress that will leave you wanting to wear it long after you have the baby. The scoop neck is embellished with grey and silver beads and sequins that add a touch a glimmer to the dress.

My favorite part of the dress is the immaculate detail of the beading at the bottom of the dress. The beads form a intricate pattern that only adds to the wavy cut of the bottom of the dress.


The dress cuts just under the bust and has a tie in the back that allows you to adjust it as your belly grows. The chiffon fabric was extremely lightweight (even with all of the beading) and breathable, which made it very comfortable to wear all night long.


This maternity dress is not only perfect for a holiday gathering, but just about any occasion!

The Sleeveless Embellished Maternity Dress is available at A Pea in the Pod for $175.00. To learn more about A Pea in the Pod and see more of their holiday dresses, please visit their website.
