Um, yes and yes please!
I met with Denise, the shop's owner and all-around lovely woman, who gave me the lowdown on her clothing philosophy: Easy to wear, comfortable fashion that makes you look and feel good. Who can't get behind that, right? Indigo 1745 carries both local designers and unique labels from as far away as London.
|These are "upcycled" Saris from India, used to make Dallas-summer-weather-appropriate blouses. How cool is that?!|
Sound expensive? Nope. I'm a bargain hunter, and no pricetag raised a single one of my discerning eyebrows.
I'll be honest: I was nervous to accept this opportunity because a) I'm very tall/slender and have trouble finding clothes that fit in general, especially with unfamiliar brands b) I'm just about five months pregnant and this wasn't a maternity store - tall/sender/AND pregnant? Nothing would fit me for sure, and I'd just frustrate everyone involved.
I cannot tell you how wrong I was! EVERYTHING I tried on fit and looked awesome. Nothing there looked like anything I already have. All of the colors and the fabric weights were perfect for the relentless Dallas summers - even as a pregnant woman.

Denise delivers on her promise to provide comfortable, easy to wear fashion. I felt good in everything I tried on. Yes, a 5'10 pregnant woman felt fantastic in non-maternity clothes! While every woman who has ever been pregnant can feel me on that, the tall preggos are nodding their heads enthusiastically and clicking over to Indigo 1745's site rightnow.
I wanted to take one of everything in my size; alas, I settled on this colorful maxi dress from Askari Collection. Shirin Askari is a North Texas native who has been featured on Project Runway and is now killin' it in NYC, rocking Fashion Week in cities all over the world. I was so thrilled I was able to select something from a local gal who's doing big things in fashion!
