I've got a toddler-free night with my husband coming up, so I've been looking for something to wear something that makes me feel alluring: Something quietly sexy, not cut-down-to-there vampy.

But I was having trouble finding an (affordable) maternity dress that hits the mark. So I decided to give up: I feel sexy, so I don't need to look sexy, right?


But then I was clicking my way through the "100 Websites Under $100" feature from Lucky's July issue -- where every single thing costs under $100, by the way -- and I found this Sleeveless Dress with Crossover V-Neck from Ann Taylor Loft.

I love the sweetheart neckline and the deep-but-sultry red. It doesn't scream "this is a maternity dress!" but it's stretchy and roomy enough to accommodate my bump. Best of all, it's $44.

A little perfume, some candlelight, and I might be able to forget that I don't get to drink any champagne....

What do you wear for a romantic night out?
