Good. Fucking. Riddance.
And by that I mean- I'M SO READY TO START WEARING AWESOME CLOTHES AGAIN AND MAYBE EVEN START WEARING MAKEUP EVERY NOW AND THEN... SO BYE!
I know that Tucson isn't the hottest place in the world (and lets be real- humidity multiplies the torture x a million so it could be worse) but when you spend May - September only wearing enough clothing to avoid being arrested for nudity... cooler temperatures bring a lot of joy. And wardrobe options.
Today's joyful wardrobe option comes in the form of a Strawberry dress (size Small to 4x!) that y'all picked out for me a over month ago. Remember?
You were right. It's perfection and while Modcloth lets me choose something every month (fist pump) and I've loved almost all of them (I've only sent back a couple things- like jumpers. WHERE DO I GET AWESOME FAT GIRL JUMPERS? HALP!)... this wins. 100% so far. Reasons:
- A halter strap that doesn't hurt thanks to the thick stretchy fabric in the back.
- A padded boob area that allows me to go braless (but see Brittany's post on strapless bras if you if you don't wanna.)
- It flares with precision.
- Enough of a skirt to twirl, but not too much that it becomes heavy.
- I think it was made for my body; belly and all.
- IT IS COVERED IN STRAWBERRIES.
Made my point? Though so.
THANKS GUYS FOR THE GREAT RECOMMENDATION. I owe all of you a hug and kiss and the optional opportunity to motorboat these padded babies.
I own 3-4 pairs of these basic black flats at a time. They're from Walmart and are exactly $5. I'm also wearing Dolled Up glasses from BonLook that- because my eyesight is worsening- I love for multiple reasons.
Before you go, I want to make something really clear: In this post, I'm all made-up and femme looking and hourglassey. And this is a real, honest, and authentic representation of me! I look like this! I'm a total babe!
So don't forget that the internet is full of highlight reels. And they're cool. And inspiring. And usually fucking gorgeous. But you don't have to always aim for that level of "shit togetherness." All the versions of us are equally awesome, so why bother?
THANKS FOR THE DRESS Y'ALL. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for just existing. And if you want to leave your fancy pictures and especially NOT fancy pictures below... I'd love to see them.
