The Dressing Room Mirror
Friday, April 01, 2011
I do not like the mirror or the cellulite hat looks out from it!
I have been frantically looking for a dress to wear to my son's wedding which is in three weeks. It is going to be a beach wedding in the state of Maine. I saw on face book today that Maine woke up to 4" of snow, so I'm hoping that this will be the last North Eastern storm and spring will hit with a big bang! Needless to say I figure whatever dress I choose I need to have a warmer cover for it. I want it spring looking so this has been a challenge. Then let's add the foot problem...
I've been in physical therapy for over a month now trying to get my heel to not be in excruciating pain when I walk. I have wore orthotics and sneakers for years because of varies foot issues, and this heel issue has been around for almost a year now. Needless to say I'm pretty sure with the wedding on a beach and with a painful heel I will need to wear flats. The good news is that there are a lot of choices for flat shoes right now with the spring season on the horizon.
I need a dress that will be perfect for a beach wedding and also be flat shoe pretty. I found this one online that I love, but I can't picture what shoes I would wear with it and it looks like the jacket is a bit thin.
Also - I'm sure with the right haircut and facelift I could look just lilke her!
I'm thinking I want to have a long dress that will hide any shoes, but I'm not good at these decisions. I have a lack of girly intuition. As a matter of fact when I was wandering around the store the other day all I could think was that I needed a sister - I felt lost.
I have found a couple of dresses that I tried on - the first day I hated my arms - those mirrors are brutal. The next day I came home and told my husband I needed a long dress to cover my legs that I hated them - He said, " I thought you hated your arms?" What I can't dislike both? SO bottom line - I need a long dress to cover the legs and feet and a cover for the arms for warmth and flab coverage. I really should have been more dedicated to my strength training. Oh well I'm out of time now and must take what I have to work with and make the best of it.
