Help Me Rhonda!!

Del is taking me to see the opera concert Carmen that the Orlando Philharmonic is putting on.  I'm very excited!!  I've never been to an opera whereas Del has been to several.
I can't wait to hear this:

I'm going to need to buy a dress though.  The attire is Sunday best.  I was going to try to to shove myself into my cool little black dress Del got me from Banana Republic, but after spending all day long rubbing my belly, I know I need to buy a dress.  Which of these do you like better?

This one is from Gap.  It's costs $60.  The material is pima cotton/modal.  I like how simple it is.

This one is from Target.  It's costs $30 and is rayon/spandex.  Everyone in my house likes this one better except for me.  I am loath to purchase rayon/spandex clothing.  I think you get what you pay for that that there is

I'm not done looking yet, but this is the style I like.  I have to cover my upper arm because of my turtle tattoo.  And I like my skirt to go below my knee.  Any suggestions?

I actually like the first one better, and I'm with you on the material. I always find that a rayon blend also sticks to me in all the wrong places, if you know what I mean.

I'm so excited that you get to go to the opera!!

I like the style of the second better because of the sleeves, but I can tell even in the picture that the material of the first one is better.

Both are okay but keep looking. I saw Heidi Klum on Today, she has two line of maternity at Pea in a Pod and Motherhood. They use black and white to camoflague shape. Motherhood was $39 and Pea $49-59. So keep looking, first the Clearance rack and then the new stuff. Good Luck!
Carmen is the most fun, singing and acting with passion.
